One of the next evolutionary trends in NFTs, Street Machine is a story-based NFT collection that blurs the line between NFT art and comic book IP. It infuses life into flat JPEGs and makes them into characters that live through a complete story arc. The NFT collection draws inspiration from sci-fi and cyberpunk pop culture.
Street Machine chooses the route of anime-styled NFTs to take collectors on a ride. Here, collectors are taken on a story-based ride where they fight alongside their characters and experience the journey from start to finish. With the Street Machine collection, NFTs are transformed into characters, and characters are placed into storylines. Ultimately, storylines are made into IP franchises.
This NFT collection is the handicraft of the award-winning game designer, SpenzerG He is the designer of popular games, PUBG, King of Glory, and Venom 2.
