81 years ago on August 31, 1939, the company Marvel Comics was introduced to the world for the first time and people were presented with a whole universe of superheroes. In celebration of Marvel’s birthday and the firm’s collaboration with Veve Digital Collectibles, “Marvel Month” will conclude with special edition Captain America non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles.
A Lineup of Captain America Statue NFTs
At the end of June, the wholly-owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, Marvel Entertainment, announced the company was dipping its toes into the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). During the first week of August, Marvel revealed “Marvel Month” and launched Spider-Man NFTs.
The collectible sets included the “Common – Spider-Man,” “Uncommon – Spider-Man,” “Rare – Spider-Man,” “Ultra-Rare – Spider-Man,” and the “Secret-Rare – Spider-Man.” Marvel’s comic book competitor DC Comics has also dropped a lineup of NFTs via the Veve Digital Collectibles application.
The conclusion of “Marvel Month” ends on Tuesday, August 31, and the culmination of the month of Marvel NFTs will end with Captain America. The NFT drop will honor Captain America’s 80th anniversary when he appeared in his debut comic back in 1941. On Tuesday, the Veve app will start the Captain America NFT launch at 8 a.m. (PT). Marvel’s legendary first Avenger NFTs will include:

Marvel is also launching a “fully-readable digital comic” NFT “The Amazing Spider-Man #1,” which will be dropped on Tuesday as well but at 11 a.m. (PT).
