A collection of exclusive Marilyn Monroe NFTs is now live on the Ethernity blockchain ecosystem.
What Happened: In honor of the Hollywood icon’s 95th birthday, the Ethernity blockchain and Marilyn Monroe estates have teamed up to launch a series of NFTs inspired by Monroe.
The exclusive NFT collection called “MARILYN MONROE METAMORPHOSIS” will feature curated artwork from several emerging artists across the globe.
The collection will be available for auction on marilynmonroeforever.com for a period of 72 hours, beginning at noon on June 1.
