On Wednesday, NFT project Chimpers announced it has partnered with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise and parent company Paramount. The partnership is for a “long-term adventure,” Chimpers wrote in a Tweet:
The video in the Tweet shows Master Splinter and the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles walking down a street. Representatives (presumably) of Chimpers teleport before the two sides meet in a field under a crescent moon. Master Splinter and the old wise man in the Chimpers group shake hands, signaling that the deal has been sealed for the partnership.
While details of the partnership are scarce, that hasn’t stopped some NFT traders from reacting to the news. The floor price for the Chimpers Collection rose to 1.5 ETH shortly after the Tweet in question, but has since fallen to 1.43 ETH or $1,708 per Chimper. The collection has largely held up in the NFT bear market, with a relatively small percentage of the bottom price falling, while much of the NFT market struggled.
Insight, the Chimpers project community manager, added his take on the collaboration in a Tweet. On Wednesday, he wrote that he and the team were excited to finally share this “epic journey” with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Paramount. In addition, he noted that the partnership would not be possible without the strength of the Chimpers community.
The Chimpers NFT project is a mix of two different NFT collections: a 100-NFT Genesis Chimpers set and a 5,555-NFT generative PFP collection. The lore tells the story of these apes, who extended their dominion over many galaxies. This world of “warriors, gods, demons, mages” and more is now on the brink of war.
Partnerships galore for Web3 companies
Even during the cryptocurrency bear market, many Web3 companies form partnerships. Here at Rarity Sniper, we’ve written countless stories over the past few months about companies working together for a variety of reasons. Here are three.
Firstly, Magic Eden and Polygon announced yesterday that they will be teaming up. Their goal: to grow GameFi, a subset of Web3 that focuses on the intertwining of gaming and finance. The partnership will also contribute to Magic Eden’s goal of becoming the top marketplace supporting multiple blockchains.
Then in October 2022, TCL Electronics revealed that it was partnering with Roblox to bring its products to the metaverse. The Chinese tech company unveiled its metaverse activation just in time for Halloween, featuring several TCL products in its Roblox “Dream House.”
Finally, two months ago, NFT project Cool Cats shared that it has partnered with Animoca Brands. The aim of the partnership is to bring Cool Cats into the gaming sector. The two have already collaborated on their first joint project: a World Cup-themed NFT collection involving IRL awards.
The TMNT and Paramount Chimper partnership is big news for an NFT industry that has struggled during the bear market. Here at Rarity Sniper, we keep our ears to the ground for further story developments.
