MetaHollywood, the new Hollywood-themed metaverse and NFT marketplace
The idea behind MetaHollywood is to create a Web3 metaverse that brings back the Hollywood experience, dedicated to film lovers, but also to studios and creators. Not only that, there will be a marketplace of NFT digital collectibles of moments, events and clips.
Included in the marketplace will be collectible props used by movie stars such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tobey Maguire, Michael J. Fox, Jim Carrey, Sylvester Stallone, George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Jason Statham, and many others.
In this regard, Planet Hollywood founder Robert Earl commented:
“I am thrilled to partner with Animoca Brands as we launch Planet Hollywood into the metaverse. The universal appeal of film, along with our unprecedented collection of iconic memorabilia, make the possibilities limitless. Through MetaHollywood, we will offer utility and functionality that is unrivaled in this burgeoning sector, and I cannot wait to see what our users create using the power of their imagination.”

UEFA Foundation with ORIGYN to present “NFTs for Good”
The UEFA Foundation for Children is also getting in on the act with its new Non-Fungible Tokens by partnering with ORIGYN to preview “NFTs for Good” on the Impossible Things marketplace.
The goal of the initiative is to create a unique selection of collectibles and NFTs to directly benefit the foundation’s mission of funding children’s rights in areas such as health, education and integration.
ORIGYN is the Swiss non-profit foundation dedicated to identifying, authenticating and unlocking the powers of ownership of valuable objects, creating NFT digital twins of historic collectibles, including one of the launch coins of the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship final between England and Italy.
Urs Kluser, general secretary of the UEFA Foundation for Children, said:
“We are thrilled to partner with ORIGYN to bring these important items to the world stage and for the benefit of The UEFA Foundation for Children. We share a united vision of leveraging next-generation technology such as NFTs to raise money for children and world citizens across the globe. There is no better collective mission.”
This unique set of UEFA Foundation for Children sports collectibles, as well as their corresponding digital NFTs, will appear exclusively on the ORIGYN-powered marketplace, Impossible Things, which will launch in Q2 2022.
