Along with Possible Studios and WENEW, the art studio and blockchain technology company co-founded by Michael Winklemann and Michale Figge, Playboy’s devoted Web3 Innovation team developed Rabbitars. The aim in their minds while creating Rabbitars was to mould an entertaining and valuable world for all the members of the NFT community.

It is evident that Playboy with this Rabbitars is taking a huge leap towards its expansion in the blockchain industry, and to be more precise towards blockchain metaverse.
Rabbitars are, as per mythology, a rare species of rabbit embedded by qualities of extraordinary speed, razor-sharp wit, unrivalled instincts, unmatched fashion sense and in rare cases extraordinary sexual prowess. Every Rabbitar is produced by taking in to account 175+ possible traits, such as fur, ears, attire, facial features and many more characteristics. The iconography of Playboy can be observed throughout the whole collection. There are also rare Rabbitars that are developed on the ideas of Playboy’s art and editorial history.
“Distributed ledger technology is revolutionizing how fans and consumers interact with brands today. At Playboy, we’re committed to moving out of the era of merely acquiring followers and into an era of building thoughtful communities where each member has a voice. Our goal is to deliver meaningful opportunities for ownership and unique value. The Rabbitars mark the beginning of true blockchain-based membership for Playboy. Just as Playboy Club keys gave millions of members a chance to step into the sophisticated lifestyle that the Playboy brand represents, NFTs today can do the same and so much more.” – Jamal Dauda, VP, Blockchain Innovation
“Playboy has a nearly 70-year history in groundbreaking contemporary art, art direction and graphic design and it all started with a playful, sophisticated rabbit, otherwise known as the Playboy Rabbit Head logo. So when it came to visualizing the Rabbitar world, our goal was to pay homage to our legacy in the arts while tapping into the spirit of innovation upon which it was built to create something entirely new and special for the NFT community. Some of the rarest Rabbitars are inspired by iconic moments in Playboy’s art and editorial history, and nods to Playboy heritage and iconography are woven throughout the collection so that every collector can have a piece of the Playboy brand in their MetaMask wallet.” – Liz Suman – VP Art Curation & Editorial
