Blue Lotus chosen for the first two NFTs bearing the image of Tintin – Companies

Tininimaginatio, the company that manages Hergé’s work, has chosen for its first two NFTs Tintin, the illustration project for the album cover “Le Lotus bleu”, it confirmed on Tuesday during a press conference on the occasion of the 94th anniversary of Tintin.

An NFT, for Non-Fungible-Token, is a technology that digitally validates and validates a good – digital or physical – which can be a collection, a work of art, a drawing, etc. This illustration project was chosen because the work is “iconic”pointed out Yves February, from Tininimaginatio, the company formerly known as Moulinsart.

It marks “a turning point in the history and collection of Tintin’s adventures”. This work also has the feature of being absent from the Hergé museum, which is considered the analogue heart of Tintin’s universe. “We have 85% of the molos and 15% are in circulation”, said February..

“The NFT will allow us to highlight this heritage, outside of the museum.” These NFTs will be of two types, a “utility”, with said artwork in a frame behind which is a certificate that certifies and certifies the design of the artwork securely. This will be printed in 777 copies and will sell for around 650 euros. The other, called “collective“, will take the form of a purely digital asset and allow its owners to own the illustration project in high definition.

In total, 1,777 copies will be planned and will be sold at around 350 euros each. The two NFTs will be offered on a dedicated website during the first quarter of 2023. “The history and facts related to this work determine its value. It is essential that we, thanks to the NFT technology, seal a factual explanation and This the last one will be tagged, immutable thanks to NFT technology”, commented Yves February.

Carrying on Tintin’s legacy beyond 2054

Both NFTs will come with a digital booklet made by hergeologist Philippe Goddin, containing the history of the original drawing.

Tininimaginatio decided to enter the field of NFT because the company considers that NFT is “an evolution of web 3.0” and that it is “essential to participate in it”. “The goal, a bit more distant, is to see to what extent Tintin will be able to blend into the metaverse (virtual world, editor’s note),” further elaborated Yves Shkurti.

After this release, there is also concern to perpetuate Tintin’s legacy beyond 2054, the year from which it will pass into the public domain. “For every NFT sold, there is a percentage for the rights holders. Beyond 2054, this will make it possible to consider a source of funding for the Hergé museum and for the people who will continue to promote Hergé’s legacy,” added Yves February. Tininimaginatio aims to propose other NFTs, but their number and selected works have not yet been determined.
