Not only will holders of the NollyCoin be able to trade the coin on various Crypto exchanges globally, they will also be able to use the NollyCoin token as movie tickets to watch blockbuster movies on the Nollytainment platform; partner movie theaters; and partner movie streaming sites. Additionally, NollyCoin holders will also be able to receive dividends from movies sold on the Nollytainment platform. Essentially, Nollytainment will be pioneering a new movie production, distribution and marketing ecosystem powered by NollyCoin.

Dr Ope Banwo, Founder/CEO at NOLLYTAINMENT INCORPORATED, says: “We are so excited to be bringing the power of blockchain technology to African movie distribution, powered by a new Ethereum based cryptocurrency coin called NOLLYCOIN.

The launch of NOLLYCOIN is the result of our commitment to the African movie industry and it will motivate us to continually seek ways and means of enhancing profitability in the African movie ecosystem for all stakeholders.”.

It will also lay the groundwork for a new age in the Financing, Production; and Distribution of African Movies in a way that is sustainable, borderless, and fair to all stakeholders.
