The founder of Onlyfans, RJ Phillips, is currently working on a new project: A celebrity-themed NFT trading card platform - Zoop to be launched this summer.

After launching Onlyfans, an all-new movement of democratization of adult content, the platform has made billions of dollars for people posting adult content. Today, Philips is taking one step further - to embrace Web3 with his new NFT project. 

 

On Zoop, users can buy, sell and trade officially licensed 3D NFT playing cards of their favourite influencers and celebrities, thanks to its partnership with different media enterprises. The cards will come with special perks for its users such as exclusive airdrops and access to communities with the same interests. Rewards will also be offered in real life to users holding sets of cards, including free concert tickets or curated items from fashion brands. 

 

RJ Phillips said Zoop will assist users in the process of buying and auctioning cards. The platform will also foster ‘a closer connection between fan and influencers’ and indicated Zoop will be a ‘win for celebrities’ and brands that leverage on the platform’s new ways to interact with their fans. 

 

‘Zoop is the trusted home for authentic celebrity card drops, enabling all fans, regardless of their technical expertise, to participate in the web3.0 space. We hold users’ hands as they compete in acquiring digital collectables in the auction process, show off their holdings to friends, and ‘collect-to-connect’ with their favorite celebrities of today and tomorrow.' he said.

 

The first drops on the platform will feature 500 cards of each influencer and sold to users on Dutch Auction and has long-term plans to launch its own token, Phillips said in an interview with The Block. A launch date has not been revealed yet. However, anyone who is interested in the pre-launch can register and apply for Priority passes that will come with rewards and perks like airdrops and real life prizes, registration is now available at mint.zoopcards.com.

 

The Zoop team will be led by Tim Stokely, a former executive of Onlyfans, will serve as co-CEO of the company and the team creating Zoop comprises developers with experience in Web3 projects. He said that the platform will be ‘family friendly’, compared to OnlyFans. 

 

Polygon and Zoop’s expansion into Web3


The platform will be launched on the Polygon Blockchain due to its low transaction costs and sustainability, according to the company.

 

We’re delighted to be working with the Zoop team as they build out their platform on Polygon. Zoop aligns with our mission to bring Web3 technologies to a much broader demographic, and allowing fans to connect to their favorite celebrities via Polygon is another step towards this goal,’ said COO of Polygon Studios Michael Blank.
