Expansion of the NFT Space

The $100 million content fund will be used to “identify growth opportunities in the NFT space”, and will be managed by Blockchain Creative Labs.

CEO of Bento Box Entertainment, Scott Greenberg, will pull double-duty as CEO of the new NFT-focused studio and report to Fox Entertainment boss Charlie Collier. Collier stated:

The emergence of blockchain technology has given birth to a new marketplace that is a natural extension of Bento Box’s talents; one that allows the team to support, elevate and reward innovators and artists in new and creatively exciting ways. Our new company, Blockchain Creative Labs, also under Scott [Greenberg] and Bento Box, will help shape and grow the fast-evolving world of creatively-led digital goods and tokens.

The Blockchain Gets Animated

In May 2021, Fox Entertainment flagged that its NFT studio would create a dedicated digital marketplace for its upcoming animated comedy, Krapopolis, from Emmy Award-winning creator Dan Harmon. 

Krapopolis is the first animated show “curated entirely on the Blockchain”

Blockchain Creative Labs will “manage and sell digital Krapopolis goods, including NFTs of one-of-a-kind characters and background art and GIFs, as well as tokens that provide exclusive social experiences to engage and reward fans”.
