Cool Cats, a popular NFT collection, is set to make a groundbreaking appearance in the 97th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This will be the first time an NFT collection has been featured in the iconic holiday event, which will take place live in New York City on November 23, 2023.

Cool Cats has transitioned from the realm of NFTs into the broader public consciousness by leveraging storytelling and forging partnerships since its establishment in 2021. The project seized a unique opportunity to participate in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade by winning an online competition hosted by Macy’s, which granted one of five NFT brands the prestigious inclusion. Notable competitors in the contest comprised VeeFriends, Boss Beauties, gmoney, and SupDucks.

Clon, the creator of Cool Cats, has been a fan of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for many years. He used to watch the parade with his grandfather, and now he will get to see his own characters float down the street in giant balloons.

“This is a big moment for me as an artist and as the founder of Cool Cats,” said Clon. He added “Personally, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has always been an important event in my family and it holds a lot of memories. Being able to showcase my artwork alongside some of the world’s most recognizable characters is a dream come true.”

Cool Cats will also be releasing a limited-edition merchandise collection available at 11 Macy’s flagship stores and online at The collection includes a plush the Blue Cat and a vinyl collectible.

Clon emphasized that this achievement holds even greater significance for him due to the strong support of the Cool Cats community. “Blue Cat and Chugs will be flying high and I’m excited to see new fans engage with our characters as we look ahead to an exciting new year for our brand.”

The Macy’s revelation comes in the wake of recent developments, including the announcement of three forthcoming games in collaboration with nWay and iCandy, both of which are integral components of the Animoca Brands ecosystem, as well as Sync Studios. Furthermore, Cool Cats has secured a strategic investment from the prominent player in the Web3 sphere, Animoca Brands, and has established a strategic partnership with Futureverse, a pioneering company in AI and metaverse technology and content.
