The primary sale of Tim Ferriss’s ‘Cockpunch’, which used Premint’s new minting technology, garnered more than $2 million. All the earnings will towards the author’s Saisei Foundation.

The PFPs are just the beginning of Ferriss’ ideas for the project. Ferriss said in a podcast chat with Kevin Rose, co-founder of Web3 company Proof, that he has written a complete first season of a narrative podcast to explore the project’s imaginary fantasy world.

Furthermore, owing to a commercial rights grant, NFT owners may utilize Tim Ferriss’s “CockPunch” characters to develop derivative projects and artwork.

Besides, Ferriss released his first NFT as part of Grails this year. It is a promotion in which Rose’s Proof Collective NFT owners may mint one of the numerous limited-edition artwork pieces without knowing who made them. Moreover, around 60 participants minted the author’s first published piece of fiction, “How to Start a War.”
