Pudgy Penguins joins a growing list of big-name NFT projects that have sought out Hollywood representation deals as a way to expand their brands and audiences. WME’s other NFT-related clients include Dapper Labs co-founder Mack Flavelle, the Boss Beauties project, pseudonymous NFT artist FEWOCiOUS and artist Claire Silver.

Pudgy Penguins is the twenty-first highest-selling NFT project of all time, according to data from CryptoSlam. Since launching in July 2021, it has generated $250.2 million worth of sales on secondary markets.

Last month the project was acquired by Luca Netz of Netz Capital for 750 Ether (ETH), worth about $2.5 million at the time of purchase on April 3.

Pudgy Penguins has been gradually developing a Web3 ecosystem and community surrounding the project and has already made some moves to get the intellectual property out into the mainstream.

In late March, the project soft-launched physical Pudgy Penguin figurines with certificates of authenticity and proof of ownership recorded on Ethereum.

Soft launched in a couple of specialty retail chains internationally this week. Slowly and then all at once. Pudgy season is coming… https://t.co/hMbUnscxzo
