What Has Playboy Done Till Now In The New Tech World?

This is not the first time Playboy magazine has jumped into new Web 3.0 technology like metaverse and others. In March 2018, Playboy tried to launch a multi-cryptocurrency wallet for consumers, but the project ultimately did not go through.

In April 2021, Playboy struck a partnership with Nifty Gateway to issue a non-fungible token (NFT) collection called ‘Liquid Summer’. Then in July 2021, Playboy collaborated with Super Rare to publish the ‘Miami Beach NFT Collection’.

In October 2021, Playboy launched its Rabbitar NFT project with 11,953 rabbit bunny NFT tokens. At that time, these bunnies were sold for $800 apiece.
