Yesterday, Phone (1) Creator Nothing announced it will airdrop NFTs to its investors. This is the first step in collaboration with Polygon to introduce web3 to mobile users. The NFT, called “Black Dot,” is exclusively reserved for its investors. However, according to Nothing, there will be other NFT rewards for customers who preorder the Phone (1).
The Black Dot NFT: What we know so far
The Black Dot NFT is a video clip featuring a rotating cube with a black dot inside it. When it hits the sides of the rotating cube, it makes a metallic sound. In addition to the cool aesthetic, the NFT perfectly matches Nothing‘s minimalist branding.
The NFT will be part of a larger collection called “Dots,” but not much is known about it. Future airdrops will likely continue to reveal the Dots collection bit by bit. To claim the airdrop, investors must log in to their Nothing account, connect their wallet, visit the “My NFT page” and claim their Black Dot NFT tomorrow.
