COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
Hold On for Dear Life – “HODL” is the first scripted television series set in the absurd world of crypto.
In a crazy world where everything can happen, a squad of misfits, DiNo, Bear, Liberty and Elvis led by the genius leader Mel launch their token, Aveer named after her best friend who mysteriously vanished. Dangerous enemies—regulators, power mongers, con artists, and purveyors of FUD (fear uncertainty doubt) all conspire against Mel for their own selfish gain. However, Mel has an unyielding belief that the potential of blockchain technology can make the world a better place.
Deeply informed and inspired by firsthand crypto experience, HODL delivers authentic, entertaining storylines and characters. Cameo appearances include real life crypto personalities, plus HODL mirrors actual challenges faced by crypto entrepreneurs. Loaded with inside jokes and jargon, HODL also appeals to the widest possible audience. Like ‘Silicon Valley’ was to the tech world, or ‘Entourage’ was to the entertainment business, HODL will be to crypto.” – Rob Weiss (Entourage, Ballers), Director of HODL
The ten episode comedy series is also the first show to tokenize portions of its net profits, and its ERC20 security token — the FDL token (For Dear Life) — is available now on Securitize’s online marketplace. Built on Ethereum using underlying smart contracts, the FDL token allows owners to receive pro rata net profits from the series directly into their digital wallets.
“Sator”, announced their blockchain-based platform and decentralized app that allows users to earn NFTs, tokens and other rewards for simply watching their favorite TV shows. “Hold On for Dear Life” will be the first series to utilize the platform. Season 1 of the series’ NFT is also being minted. These NFTs will be based upon original art, proprietary content, and IP from the show such as characters, storylines, outtakes, scores, and original art. Collaborating with NFT artists, the series aims to lead television into a new era.
In partnership with Missionary Media, Lucid Dream Entertainment represents the series worldwide.
