Sounds great! I discovered NFTs when I saw Elon Musk's wife's work back in March. My twin-brother, Mike and I live in Los Angeles, CA and have a background in TV production and had an idea for an animated tv show about the Stoney Baloney premise, but after learning about NFTs, I thought Stoney Baloney could be a great NFT opportunity.
Why did you choose WAX blockchain for the project ?
I was introduced one of our advisors is Joel Comm, who's behind Blockchain Heroes. He suggested wax as he knew we wanted to build a brand and thought wax is the best platform for trying to drop a card collection
