The cryptocurrency price monitoring website CoinMarketCap has launched a reality competition show called “Killer Whales” that is modeled after the well-known TV program “Shark Tank.”
Entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges, including business influencers, Web3 company founders, and entrepreneurs known as “Killer Whales,” as part of a new initiative. The project is a joint effort between the Web3 entertainment company and Hello Labs, led by Paul Caslin, the creator of MTV VMAs.
According to a press release, Jonathan Isaac, the Chief Marketing Officer at CoinMarketCap, stated that “Killer Whales” presents a thrilling and enjoyable prospect to introduce the entrepreneurial spirit of the Web3 sector to households globally.
Interested parties can start filing their applications to Hello.one and CoinMarketCap on May 2. After being chosen, the candidates will go through several interviews in Hollywood. The program is scheduled to begin filming in June and will be available on major streaming platforms, as well as Hello Labs’ on-demand service Hello TV.
Hello Labs’ CEO Sander Gortjes stated that their goal is to entertain and educate people on all things crypto, with the intention of introducing the next billion users to the world of Web3.
In recent times, there has been a surge of television programs related to Web3, demonstrating the diverse range of use cases for blockchain technology and the growing fascination with cryptocurrencies among the general public.
Fox will premiere “Krapopolis,” a program from “Rick and Morty” co-creator Dan Harmon, sometime in 2023. Holders of the 10,420 Krap Chicken non-fungible tokens (NFTs) can vote on show aspects, access special material, and earn incentives since the collection’s premiere in August.
Other NFT collections are exploring how they can use their intellectual property (IP) across different types of media. NounsDAO, a community in the Web3 space, has opened up to pitches for a TV series and a full-length movie, whereas the lively NFT collection Doodles has acquired the Emmy-nominated animation studio Golden Wolf and unveiled plans to expand the Doodles brand through storytelling with a plot.
