TikTok Has Partnered with Creators, Celebrities and More to Release a Series of NFTs
Is there anything TikTok can’t do? Having recently hit the 1 billion monthly users mark, the thriving social media platform has just announced it will be releasing a selection of its own NFTs with elected creators, celebrities and online entities.
Known as ‘TikTok Top Moments’, the platform was inspired by six “culturally significant” TikTok videos that will be sold as digital collectibles.

As outlined by TikTok:
“Inspired by the creativity and innovation of the TikTok creator community, TikTok is exploring the world of NFTs as a new creator empowerment tool. NFTs are a new way for creators to be recognised and rewarded for their content and for fans to own culturally-significant moments on TikTok.
The creation that happens on TikTok helps drive culture and start trends that impact society. TikTok will bring something unique and groundbreaking to the NFT landscape by curating some of these cultural milestones and pairing them with prominent NFT artists.”

In October, the platform intends to auction off these videos with another set of limited edition NFTs, which will sell weekly. The creators, celebrities and online entities involved include Lil Nas X, Grimes, Bella Poarch, Rudy Willingham and Gary Vaynerchuk.
Singer Lil Nas X will collaborate with artist Rudy Willingham for his NFT, whilst Grimes is collaborating with Brittany Broski “Kombucha Girl” and separately with TikTok sensation Bella Poarch. Watch out, TikTok is about to take the world of NFTs by storm.
