Kraken’s NFT Collection Proves Everyone Wants to Release the Kraken, Not the NFTs

Choose between an NFT or a free Pre-mix pack.

The Kraken Black Spiced Rum is the latest alcohol brand to jump on board NFTs, but unlike Penfolds, Kraken isn’t taking it seriously. Instead, the brand has created a dark and satirical twist on the hype and launch of NFT collections, twisting the troped with its own collection to show where the real value lies—clue: it isn’t in over-hyped digital art.

Claiming its rightful reputation as the most disruptive force in the art world, Kraken’s NFTs are worthless. What do we mean? Well, Kraken has created a collection of NFTs that come with a choice—take the NFT, or choose The Kraken Rum, showing that the taste of their rum is more valuable than over-hyped digital art.

Each Kraken NFT is drawn from a pool of 200 precious artworks and 200 Kraken premix packs. The hero NFTs include Bored Mermaid Shipwreck Club, which grants you access to a membership so enticing that many sailors have met their end in its pursuit. The Sip of Seafearing Legend is an exclusive digital collectible bottle, and the Kraken Koin is priceless in value once minted.

For the curious and NFT fanatics, you can purchase a Kraken NFT here. For a free Kraken mix pack, click “mint now” on the NFT with two bottles and fill in your details.

A few weeks ago, ALDI opened the cheapest wine bar in Sydney, and today, they’re bringing us more frugal feeds with a pop-up dumpling truck.

The truck will be open from 5-7 pm (or while stocks last) today in the ALDI Bankstown Central car park, with hungry Sydneysiders able to swing by to pick up a box of six Urban Eats dumplings, including fan-favourites Prawn Gyoza and a delicious new seasonal addition to the range, Chicken Dumplings—all for less than a $2 coin.

ALDI’s quality range means Aussies can treat themselves to a Friday restaurant-quality meal that won’t break the bank.

Can’t make it to the Dumpling Truck? ALDI has everyone else covered with the full range of dumplings available in the freezer section across the country.
