Slow down. What is it? The product lets users buy and sell highlights as NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens - please don't blame us, we did not name them) on a secondary digital marketplace. It’s like a stock market for digital trading cards.
Before you dismiss the idea, imagine being:
A Giants fan and owning the David Tyree helmet catch.
A Seahawks fan owning Marshawn Lynch's 'Beast Quake.'
A Falcons fan owning a play from your team’s first Super Bowl win… oh wait.
What determines the NFT’s value? It’s quite simple. Value will come down to:
The player depicted.
The play depicted.
The card's scarcity.
The card's serial number (generally, closer to #1 the better).
Each time one of these NFTs is sold, both the NFL and the player depicted get a cut of the proceeds.
Zoom out: Over the last month, Dapper Labs and Sorare - the two largest players in sports NFTs - both raised funding rounds valued at $7+billion and $4+ billion respectively. Clearly, the venture world expects big things.
With the massive success of NBA Top Shot ($701 million traded in 2021, so far), the NFL saw an opportunity it couldn’t pass up. Maybe now it’ll let franchises make deals with crypto companies.
