The director also urged his followers to update their profile pictures to images of Nobody.
Several celebrities including Jay Chou, JJ Lin, Mayday frontman Ashin, Wu Jianhao, and others have expressed their support for “Nobody” on social media.
The “Nobody” NFT Collection
The collection was initially announced in December 2023, when Chow said he was partnering up with Chinese-American rapper MC Jin to drop an NFT collection.
Nobody was released on the Moonbox platform, a Hong Kong-based AI and Web3 startup that specializes in launching AI-powered NFTs influenced by the arts and film industry.
“Chow has always hoped to create a native IP based on Web3, aiming to bring top-notch Chinese storytelling abilities to the Web3 industry,” Chow’s agent Chris Chan said. “The design inspiration for the upcoming NFT series ‘Nobody’ does indeed stem from the spirit represented by Stephen Chow: the spirit or strength to achieve great things despite humble beginnings.”
Moonbox co-founder Jacky Cao noted that users will have the capability to interact and engage in conversations with each Nobody NFT character, gaining insights into their personalities, hobbies, and background stories. Additionally, holders of Nobody NFTs will be able to participate in the secondary creation of Nobody characters using exclusive digital features and tools.
The Nobody Airdrop
On January 10, Chow collaborated with crypto exchange OKX to launch a Nobody NFT whitelist giveaway, with participation from over 125,000 users. The airdrop featured 2,500 Nobody NFTs available for distribution, with the total supply of Nobodys limited to 10,000.
Developers noted that holders of Nobody collectibles will be able to engage in the project’s development and enjoy various privileges, including participation in proposals, co-creation, voting, and contributing to the creation of Nobody intellectual property.
