Gucci to drop Otherside pendants, Jack Daniels taps AR, Web3 and more

Otherside holders get dripped out in Gucci

Luxury fashion giant Gucci has designed a limited edition pendant for Yuga Labs’ Otherside metaverse that will come in both physical and nonfungible token (NFT) forms.

Gucci’s silver jewelry piece is dubbed the “KodaPendant,” and will drop on April 6 for hodlers of the Koda or Vessel NFTs, which essentially function as either creatures or avatars in Otherside.

The physical chain itself is 50cm long, with a Koda-shaped pendant engraved with “GG.” There will be 3,333 in total on sale for 450 ApeCoin (APE) a pop, worth roughly $1,930 at current prices.

Once the NFTs are purchased, their Koda or Vessel NFT metadata will be updated with a KodaPendant trait, resulting in a physical update to the token’s associated animated character.
