CRYPTO PILLS NFT COLLECTION 
(Released 2021)

Internationally renowned artist and digital pioneer Micha Klein released the his first-ever limited NFT collection, comprising 10,000 unique avatars dubbed ‘Crypto-Pills’.


Crypto-Pills are inspired by Klein’s iconic ‘Pillman’ character, conceived at the height of 90’s rave culture and popularised further by Eminem when featured as a digital backdrop to his Anger Management Tour (2000).


Each algorithmically generated Crypto-Pill is stored on the Ethereum blockchain and represented by a highly detailed, 3000px resolution character featuring any combination of 37 categories and 504 traits, creating a hierarchy of rarity.

Crypto-Pills dropped at 11:11 (CET) on 27 August 2021 with all 10,000 Pills selling out in 11 minutes due to overwhelming demand. The success of this event marks a milestone in the crypto-art revolution and reaffirms Micha Klein’s place in the pantheon of digital art’s original innovators. 

 

 

They are available on secondary market at OpenSea, Coinbase and LooksRare.
