If you haven't been keeping up with the world of NFTs, we don't blame you. The ever-growing world of cryptocurrency and blockchains feels overwhelming, even as they begin to transcend the digital space.
Dubbed Rocket Factory, Sachs' initiative describes itself as "a trans-dimensional manufacturing plant," which allows buyers to make their own NFTs from pre-existing NFTs.
Basically, there are over 113,500 combinations that can be created from the rocket pieces, including a nose cone, body, and tail assembly. By purchasing each piece using Ethereum, you can build your own "Frankenrocket."
In addition to the digital build, Tom Sachs will also build a toy-sized physical version of 1,000 completed rockets.
Then, he will launch it and the buyer will receive the full package consisting of the NFT, physical rocket, and a video of the launch.
At Art Basel in Miami, Sachs auctioned a unique rocket NFT together with Christie's, marking its first-ever completely on-chain auction with Opensea.
The NFT, "Through the Night Softly," features a Miami Vice logo throughout and eventually sold on Opensea for 20 ETH or about $86,376.
Head to the Tom Sachs Rocket Factory website to pick up your own custom build so you can match Pharrell Williams, who tweeted out his purchase of a Chanel-branded rocket, a worthy pickup for the luxury label's longtime pal.
