U.S. online marketplace eBay has launched a collection of non-interchangeable tokens as part of a partnership with NFT platform OneOf.
NFT and blockchain technology are revolutionizing the collection space and are increasingly seen as an investment opportunity for enthusiasts,” said eBay Vice President Dawn Block.
Genesis’ debut collection includes 3D and animated images of iconic athletes who have appeared on Sports Illustrated covers. Canadian hockey player and four-time Stanley Cup winner Wayne Gretzky was chosen as the first NFT.
Forty years ago I was grateful to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated, it was a seminal moment in my life. I am honored to give a collectible experience to hockey fans who have followed my career for decades,” Gretzky said.
