Semkor.io is a collaborative effort by an exclusive group of creators to develop unique NFT collections and other decentralized applications catering to the entertainment industry. NFTs can be viewed as an evolution in the distribution of short films, web series and other digital content — but exponentially more creative. Semkhor has harnessed the power of the Phantasma blockchain to unlock the full potential of media content.
We look forward to building long term interactions with artists and their audiences, providing a platform that allows them unlimited creativity. Semkor.io presents an array of elite filmmakers, actors, musicians and photographers creating digital masterpieces on the marketplace. One of the most exciting things happening at Semkhor is that legendary filmmaker Kevin Smith revealed that he’ll be selling his next film, the completed horror anthology Killroy Was Here, as an NFT.
About Killroy was here, Kevin Smith notes in an interview with IndieWire that “It’s got a theme that runs through it, in as much as our monster Killroy, and all these little stories that happen around him. He’s kind of like a kid-avenger — if you fuck with kids, Killroy will show up,” he said. The titular character is based on the “Kilroy was here” graffiti phenomena that’s been around since the 1940s: A doodle of a bald-headed man peeking over a wall with his enormous nose most prominently extended over the wall. For the film, Smith tapped makeup artist Bob Kurtzman to create a character that honored the original graffiti while also being suitable for a horror movie. “It’s fucking horrifying but it’s also like horrifying and goofy at the same time. I mean if you look real close when you see Killroy, it looks like he’s got a giant dick for a nose,” Smith said. “It’s supposed to be his features are melted because — well, I don’t want to spoil it.”
Smith famously launched his career in 1994, selling his first feature, the ultra-low-budget classic Clerks at the Sundance Film Festival. Beginning Wednesday, April 28 2021, he’s hawking NFTs, via the Jay & Silent Bob’s Crypto Studio.
Kevin Smith’s world premier of his Smokin’ Tokens includes five Platinum Tokens that entitle the holder to a cameo in Smith’s upcoming sequel Clerks 3, which has a crypto storyline. A second drop, a month later, will feature five more Platinum Tokens, plus the big prize: a token awarding the holder the rights to exhibit, distribute, and stream Killroy Was Here. The film cost under $1 million to make and stars Azita Ghanizada, Ryan O’Nan, the pro wrestler Chris Jericho, and Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith.The best part about this is that being able to add these unique digital collectibles to your NFT library is only a few clicks away.
One of the brilliant creators on Semkhor.io is legendary movie producer Kevin Smith director of the classic films Clerks, Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob. Killroy is Here is the world’s first comic book which gives fans an exclusive sneak preview of the film Killroy Was Here.

After you have created the account you can click your address at the top of the UI.You will see a screen that says Select Wallets. Click the button with 3 dots to extract your private keys. Make sure to back these up and never reveal them to anyone. Do not store your WIF or HEX on a computer or laptop.

NOTE:Gwei is a small unit of the Ethereum network’s Ether (ETH) cryptocurrency. A gwei is defined as 1,000,000,000 wei, the smallest base unit of Ether. One gwei equals 0.000000001 or 10^–9 ETH. Conversely, 1 ETH represents 1 billion gwei!
Gwei is a useful denomination to calculate gas fees (paid to miners for transaction processing) in a convenient way. The higher gwei fee you choose to pay, the faster your transaction will be processed by Ethereum’s miners. You can check the latest Ethereum transaction costs at the ETH gas station.
