Tricia Bouras, CEO & President of US Playing Card Company / EVP Retail & Industry North America Cartamundi Group said, “We see communities like the Bored Ape Yacht Club as the heart and soul of web3. Bicycle is all about playfully connecting, and web3 opens up new ways for us to interact and co-create with communities.”
Doug Scott, Chief Creative Officer & Co-Founder of Subnation, a venture studio and owner of Artcade commented, “Artcade combines culture and technology to create innovative IRL and Metaverse experiences. Bicycle Playing Cards exemplify both the type of brand we want to feature and the IP creators we want to collaborate with. The product is another example of how NFT holders are monetizing their IP and attracting new collectors, influencers and consumers to the community.”
