Quentin Tarantino is officially dipping his toe into the world of crypto. The filmmaker has announced that he’s putting seven uncut scenes from Pulp Fiction up for auction as Secret NFTs on OpenSea, AKA the world’s largest NFT marketplace.
For us smoother brained people, Secret NFTs are “enhanced with privacy and access control features to create hidden content and experiences” and “give the choice to the owner between publicly displaying ownership or keeping it secret”, according to a press release.
“I’m excited to be presenting these exclusive scenes from Pulp Fiction to fans.” Tarantino added in a statement. “Secret Network and Secret NFTs provide a whole new world of connecting fans and artists and I’m thrilled to be a part of that.”
“The secret content itself is one-of-a-kind, has never been seen or heard before, and will include the uncut first handwritten scripts of Pulp Fiction and exclusive custom commentary from Tarantino, revealing secrets about the film and its creator. The public metadata of the NFT – the ‘front cover’ of this exclusive content – is rare in its own right: a unique, never-before-seen, public-facing work of art,” says the press release.
Tarantino hasn’t revealed what the scenes contain, but we can assume they’re likely to be packed with the kind of witty dialogue and shock violence that we’ve come to expect from the director.
