Jake Paul‘s brutal knockout of ex-NBA star Nate Robinson is now being sold as an NFT — and the asking price is $10 MILLION!!!
Triller, the company behind the fight, is also behind the sale of the 1-of-1 NFT — but there’s a pretty significant twist here.
In addition to owning the digital collectible from the Nov. 28, 2020 event — the buyer will also get a custom 1-of-1 NFT featuring the last 30 seconds of the April 17 boxing match between Jake Paul and Ben Askren.
So, if the fight ends with a bang, that moment will be memorialized in a collectible non-fungible token.
The token is available through the new Triller NFT Marketplace — which the company says is “based on peer-reviewed, audited Ethereum blockchain infrastructure.”
NFTs are all the rage in digital collectibles at the moment — with some tokens selling for more than $50 MILLION!!
If you’re still not clear on what an NFT is — think of it as a digital baseball card that’s built on blockchain technology to ensure authenticity.
Just like a baseball card, people can buy, sell or trade NFTs — but they don’t own the copyright to the actual art itself.
Make sense? Okay great.
Athletes and entertainers from all over the world have been jumping on the NFT train — Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady, Snoop and more have issued their own NFT collections, some have sold for a fortune.
The big question … what will the market look like in 5 or 10 or even 20 years? Triller is clearly betting that it’s on the rise in a big way.
