New Rumor Says Disney Is Planning on Making a “Big NFT Acquisition”


There is a new rumor that says the Walt Disney Company is planning on making a “Big NFT acquisition.” This wouldn’t be that much of a stretch given that Disney has recently posted a job opening for a Manager of Business Development to “lead efforts in the NFT space.”

Now it seems Disney might have it’s eyes on purchasing an NFT studio akin to Nike acquiring RTFKT Studios. I can’t see Disney going in unless they buy control or make a strategic partnership, with them in control.

Apparently the rumor started on Twitter when Jamie Bourke posted about it:


This led to a lot of speculation into who the mouse could be buying into. Some speculated it would be VeVe, as Disney has done some NFT stuff with them before, but Burke flat out said it was not them.

He did say that it would be the largest deal to date, IF it goes through:


Of course it’s all rumor. Disney has already make a lot of people upset recently, especially on Twitter. The same groups are usually emphatically anti-NFT as well. If true, this is going to get very interesting for sure.

What do you think? Comment and let us know.
