Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction revival in seven secret NFTs
The NFTs will be auctioned off on OpenSea and built on the Secret Network
Quentin Tarantino announced he is set to auction off seven uncut Pulp Fiction Scenes as Secret non-fungible tokens (NFTs) with the first handwritten scripts of the movie revealing secrets about his iconic 1994 film.
The NFTs, which will be auctioned off in November on OpenSea and built on the Secret Network powered by SCRT Labs, contain secret content viewable only by the owner of the NFT. The platform enables NFTs to contain both public and private metadata as well as giving the choice to the owner between publicly displaying ownership or keeping it secret.
“I’m excited to be presenting these exclusive scenes from Pulp Fiction to fans,” said the award-winning director, screenwriter, producer, author, film critic and actor on the heels of his lifetime achievement award at the Rome Film Festival.
Pulp Fiction stands out as a $213.9m success crafted from a $10m budget. The film is critically acclaimed, having won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and earned seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. Tarantino also took home the Oscar for Best Screenplay.
Secret NFTs are a new asset class of NFTs, enhanced with privacy and access control features to create hidden content. As the company explained: “developers and artists can use its underlying technology to create NFT assets with private owners and native access control. In the art world, secret NFTs could be used to set up private galleries, maintain financial privacy for artists, or conduct sealed bid auctions.”
“Digital media could use Secret NFTs to create watermarked content or to protect exclusive or gated content while game producers could tap Secret Network to create loot boxes with mystery content, deploy playable trading card games with hidden traits, or design RPGs with far more engaging strategic gameplay relying on imperfect information”.
“In the ‘real’ world, Secret NFTs could be used to represent digital [identity] ID cards and passports with hidden personal information, receipts for luxury items and properties, and ticketing systems,” added the company.
“NFTs could be the most disruptive technology to come out of this decade,” said Guy Zyskind, Co-founder of Secret Network and CEO of SCRT Labs.
Secret Network did not immediately respond to a request for comments.
