There’s no doubt that NFTs are becoming more mainstream, and what once was reserved purely for the ‘crypto bros’ is now becoming an industry and tradeable artform that everyone can take part in.
Of course, with a rise in popularity comes the rise in influencers taking interest in NFTs and crypto, influencers who perhaps would not have considered NFTs to be part of their niche before.
In the same way that many have released product lines and make-up palettes, some are now choosing to release NFT collections instead.
Who is Kayla Freitas?
This is clear through releases by influencers such as popular TikTok star Kayla Freitas, aka Travelmormoirs, who is known for her Disney-themed videos, particularly her series focusing on her collection of popcorn buckets that are sold at the Disneyland theme parks.
These are collectible items, typically made of plastic that are designed to hold a box of popcorn that the Disney theme parks also sell but are decorated to resemble certain characters, movies, or motifs found in Disney works. For instance, there are buckets shaped like baby Simba from The Lion King, the pumpkin coach in Cinderella, or Mickey Mouse.
Kayla posts videos of her unwrapping new buckets that she has added to her collection, and regularly discusses ones she wants to find with her followers. Therefore, it makes sense that her debut NFT collection features popcorn bucket designs, though these are the traditional striped ones found across the US.
Unboxing Queen’s Popcorn Bucket Themed NFTs
Popcorn Themed NFT’s by Unboxing Queen is a collection of 1000 art design NFT’s depicting popcorns and each of them is unique, and come with different styles, backgrounds and each one has its own unique personality.
Each popcorn bucket has a face on and arms and legs, in varying colors, outfits, and positions, with different facial expressions and against a range of backdrops. There are 1000 different designs in Freitas’s collection available on Opensea and have a starting price of 0.028 ETH (equivalent to approximately $104.99), making them relatively cheap and potentially a good beginner purchase to those new to NFT buying and trading.
The 1000 designs are being released gradually over 8 Fridays from the first week of 2022 so that plenty of people will have a chance to get their hands on a first edition. Freitas has spoken about her wish to create an NFT collection and the excitement around launching it and allowing buyers to partake in a virtual version of the popcorn bucket unboxing Freitas is so famed for.
Her videos have garnered millions of views and over 1.1 million TikTok followers, among which her Disney content, especially her popcorn bucket unboxing videos, are the most popular.
Frietas has been nicknamed The Unboxing Queen and has an obvious love of collecting sets of items, which is reflected in the NFT collection.
Overall, Freitas’s NFT collection demonstrates the widening interest in NFTs from those who would not be typically interested in them and attracting a new NFT audience, as Disney fans are not stereotypically likely to be interested in NFTs or thought to be within the target market by those within the crypto sphere.
Such collections suggest that NFTs may be becoming part of the public culture and technological future more than some have previously predicted.
