‘The Rocky Horror Show’ marks 50 years of TimeWarp NFT launch
Online Blockchain plc, a blockchain research and development company, has announced its upcoming NFT collection inspired by The Rocky Horror Show. The first NFT, TimeWarp, debuts on OpenSea at 08:00 ET on June 19.
The Rocky Horror Show is iconic for its groundbreaking blend of science fiction, camp horror and rock music, combined with provocative themes of sexuality and self-expression. Its unique audience participation and enduring popularity, extending from the stage to a cult film, have cemented its status as a cultural phenomenon since its debut in 1973.
The collection features 50 NFTs inspired by the iconic show’s 50th anniversary. The Virgin TimeWarp NFT captures the unmistakable “drop of blood” typography of the legendary theatrical show’s title. The first rarity of its kind will be listed at 0.1 ETH. The other 49 will be released as “unexpected drops” at random times and at different prices over two weeks via The Rocky Horror Show NFT official Twitter and Instagram pages.
