“Over the past 20 plus years, nearly 100 million people have engaged with Neopets characters both in the game and through merchandise and other branded items. Extending to NFTs give those users as well as NFT collectors the chance to experience and own part of the history of Neopets” says Jim Czulewicz, President and CEO of JumpStart Games, Inc., the company that owns Neopets. “For us this is another opportunity to extend the brand into new markets and to new users in a format that is both modern and valued.”
