Joe Exotic has announced he will be launching his Tiger King NFTs on officialtigerkingnft.com on June 18 on crypto marketplace Mintable.

He will be the first celebrity to partner with MORE, a New York City branding company that promotes celebrities and crypto.

Joe became famous from his viral Netflix show The Tiger King and is currently serving a 22-year federal sentence in Fort Worth, Texas, on counts of animal abuse and attempted murder for hire.

But that’s not stopping the former zoo operator, police officer and global meme sensation from launching his NFT drop with the support of Brad Small, high-profile entertainment lawyer of Beverly Hills firm Rosenfeld Meyer & Susman LLP.

  • Bikinis worn in the series by adult film star Rachel Starr
  • Audio recordings made by Joe in prison, as well as other digital artworks and tokens

The Tiger King has spoken of his excitement about the project, stating:

I’m really grateful to the MORE team for giving me a platform to give back to my loyal fan base. It’s great to have a voice via blockchain technology and I’m honoured to be the first to kick off MORE’s celebrity NFTs.
