An event 37 years in the making. In 1984 Courtney Gains shocked audiences with his performance as Malachai Boardman in StephenKing’s classic Children of the Corn. Gains’ first role in a major motion picture made him an instant star, and the character of Malachai a legendary figure of 80’s pop culture.

Malachai Rising is an online event created by Courtney Gains and Gary Pullin that celebrates this recognized historical legacy in a significant, meaningful way by minting a collection of artworks using blockchain technology. It fulfills their vision to bring together fans of the character Malachai in the 1984 film Children of the Corn.

Courtney Gains has chosen NFT technology to turn the idea of the classic fan club on its head. NFTs offer fans a transferable and sellable membership with built-in security, permanence, and inherent value.

Gains set the pricing based on the film's release year. Numbers chosen to validate nearly 4 decades of fandom. From $19.84, $198.40, and $1,984.00, to the dutch auction bid starting at $19,840,000.00 for the 1 of 1 signed piece.

Bought at the starting price, Malachai Rising will become the second highest-grossing NFT in history behind Beeple's, The First 5,000 Days.
