The online marketplace for virtual items offered 10,000 “packs” for sale. It featured roughly 125,000 digital collectibles in total.
Collectors can now buy, sell, and trade the cards amongst themselves.
Some of the scenes includes Shatner’s headshots and characters from his early acting days.
There are also more personal moments including him hugging fellow actor Leonard Nimoy, AKA Spock, and even an X-Ray of Shatner’s teeth.
“I’m astonished at how quickly it all happened,” Shatner adds while he hoping people who purchased the NFTs would be able to find new friends in trading them.
“The cards themselves represent a beautiful past..The verification of being on the blockchains represents a great future. So we have the past and the future mixing together.”
The Star Trek actor has been a blockchain advocate for some time, promoting the technology on his Twitter account. Shatner also said once in an interview that “putting something on a blockchain is forever.”
