The singer Ozzy Osbourne announced the launch of his first collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), dubbed CryptoBatz.
The collection of 9,666 blockchain dwelling bats, creatively directed by Ozzy Osbourne and built by a team of NFT obsessed nerds known as Sutter Systems will be released in January 2022.

This collection, CryptoBatz, takes its name from one of Osbourne’s most notorious moments. A musician bit the head off a bat on stage in 1982 while performing live in Des Moines, Iowa.
Each CryptoBat will have the ability to “bite” another NFT in a user’s digital wallet and mutate with it to create another token. The Cryptobat can bite only once, and what you choose to bite determines what Mutantbat you will create.
These ‘MutantBatz’ will allow customers to combine with NFTs from other NFT projects including Bored Ape Yacht Club, SupDucks, Cryptotoadz, and more.
“I’ve been trying to get in on the NFT action for a while so when I asked Sharon for a Bored Ape for Christmas after several failed attempts of buying my own, and she said no, I decided to create my own,” Osbourne said in a statement. “CryptoBatz is a fucking mental project for NFT collectors and fans. The design pays tribute to one of my most iconic onstage moments and is a chance to acquire a rare piece of art history. I love it!”
A pre-sale for the CryptoBatz collection is open now via the CryptoBatz Discord channel.
