Playboy centerfolds will be sold as NFTs after the classic men’s magazine announced a partnership with Nifty Gateway today.

The entertainment and lifestyle brand, famous for its Playboy bunnies, distinctive logo, and the dubious claim that men “only read it for the articles”, is planning to tokenize its art, cartoon and photography archive built up over 67 years, as well as release onew original artworks.
