• ‘Legend’ NFTs based in Solana are bringing stars like Muhammed Ali to the metaverse

  • Solana-based Blockasset, a sports platform that uses decentralized technologies to connect athletes and their fans, has revealed five heroes of its upcoming stellar ‘LeGENds’ NFT drop, according to a release shared with CryptoSlate.

    Ex-England and Manchester United star Wayne Rooney, ex-UFC champion, sports analyst and commentator Mike Bisping, world-renowned New Zealand rugby superstar Jonah Lomu, international hockey star Alexander Ovechkin, and boxing legend Muhammad Ali are among them.

    “The drop features special art designed to honor each of the five athletes, both those still with us and those who have sadly passed away, evoking some of the most memorable moments of their careers,” said Ryan Wilkinson, Blockasset’s Head of Product. “Through this campaign, fans will be able to reconnect with their heroes, collect each of these moments as personalized digital art, and display them in their virtual sticker books.”

    Solana NFTs are extremely rare.

    Each of the athletes — or, in the case of Lomu and Ali, their official executors — has verified the NFTs. Each non-fungible token will bear the artwork of Dosbrak, a renowned digital artist who will apply his unique style to the images of the athletes. 10,000 collectible tokens with varying degrees of rarity will be available exclusively through Blockasset’s NFT marketplace, 2,000 for each of the five athletes.

    The team plans to launch Raydium DropZone, the NFT platform on the Solana-powered decentralized exchange, on November 4th.

    LeGENds NFTs include a number of one-of-a-kind utilities written into the metadata, such as access to an exclusive ‘Legends Club,’ where fans can chat with Blockasset athletes, participate in AMAs, and even compete against them in fantasy sports leagues.

    Aside from that, NFT holders receive discounts on the Blockasset marketplace, first access to upcoming P2E games, and ‘on this day’ real-world rewards, in which Blockasset commemorates key moments in the Legends’ careers. Collectors who have all five Legends will have first access to all future NFT drops on the Blockasset platform.
