With the help of Polygon, the sidechain scaling solution that runs alongside the Ethereum blockchain, a famous Netflix show is working to raise awareness of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
With Polygon’s support, AIMC, a unit within Korean drama production company Astory, will build a non-fungible token (NFT) community tied to its Netflix series Extraordinary Attorney Woo.
The ongoing South Korean drama series, featuring an autistic lawyer who draws inspiration from a fixation with whales, has become one of the most-watched non-English shows on the streaming platform.
The planned NFT project, called “Extraordinary Whales Club,” hopes to engage fans of the show by raising public awareness of ASD.
The company also plans on establishing a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) that will raise funds to support ASD charities.
