The first Creature Chronicles collection, developed and marketed by Dolphin’s Web3 division We Come In Peace, was minted on the Solana blockchain and features 7,777 custom-crafted avatars designed by Francisco, generating more than 13,175 SOL in primary sales (at mint time equaling ~$435,000).

Trading in the secondary market has already surpassed 11,000 SOL in sales (at release time equaling ~$357,500) in less than 24 hours, with Dolphin also earning royalty revenue on every secondary sale.
Additional character NFT collections from the Creature Chronicles multiverse will go on sale in the coming months and will be brought to life both inside and outside Web3 through Dolphin’s in-house production arms and its best in class marketing and PR firms. Dolphin’s team of project managers, marketers and writers, alongside Anthony Francisco, are developing major plot lines, character designs and concepts that will expand the Creature Chronicles saga for multiple future collections.
In addition, Dolphin is already working to build out the Creature Chronicles story in the form of physical and digital comic books, animated series, merchandise, and more in order to bring new value to our community of holders, who will also enjoy a continuous series of perks and benefits from Dolphin’s access into music, film, tv, culinary, arts, theater and more.

About Creature Chronicles
Creature Chronicles follows an advanced race of humanoid dragons known as the Atrivians that have reigned supreme over an interdimensional nexus of space and time. For almost as long, a barbaric race of humanoid aquatics known as the Ostrogs have sought to oust them from power. Roughly a decade ago, the Ostrogs launched a siege that nearly annihilated their age-old enemy and drove the last of the Atrivians from their home. On Earth in the not too distant future, a 25-year old Zarah has returned home after the death of her father to help her brothers run the family space tourism business. After a black hole transports their shuttle to another dimension, Zarah is separated from her brothers before being rescued by the Atrivians. Zarah wil find herself at the center of an intergalactic space war and come to realize that her presence there is anything but accidental.
Creature Chronicles is from the mind of Marvel Studios’ visionary Anthony Francisco. He served for nine years as a Senior Visual Development Artist at Marvel Studios, where he designed some of the world’s most beloved characters and elements for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from Baby Groot to Loki to the Dora Milaje (female warriors of Black Panther). His work has been featured in Guardians of the Galaxy Volumes 1, 2 and 3, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, Antman, Antman and the Wasp, Black Panther and Doctor Strange.
