The NFT is named after Aveer because he has disappeared. It is up to Mel to overcome the obstacles of centralization and politics and complete a fruitful journey in search of her friend.

What are the details of the NFT?

The Beacon Pictures’, Satoshi Nakamoto productions and the MAP group have also played a hand in producing this ten-part series with Rob Weiss. This comedy-drama series is the first ever television show to convert a part of its revenue into an ERC-20 token, the For Dear Life (FDL) token. This token is also available on the securitization’s official marketplace. The FDL token is built on the Ethereum blockchain using the same smart contracts that Ethereum does.

The FDL token will allow the cast, producers and staff to receive their profits directly into their digital wallets. The producers of the show have also partnered with an NFT platform that rewards people with NFTs and other digital assets for simply watching their favorite shows. With the establishment of this partnership, the audience will be able to redeem rewards for watching ‘Hold On For Dear Life’.  The directors are also in talks of launching the first episode of the series as a Non fungible token.
