Crypto.com, DeFi the Game and NFT have formed a cooperation. The agreement will allow the team to work with well-known cricketers such as Sir Vivian Richards, Herschelle Gibbs, Shoaib Malik, Mohammed Amir, Ravi Bopara, and Dan Lawrence to create limited-edition Crypto.com NFT collections for cricket fans.
Crypto.com Honors International Cricketers via NFT collections
Crypto.com NFT, a carefully curated platform for collecting and trading non-fungible tokens, is now bringing the NFT excitement to cricket fans in collaboration with DeFi the Game. They have already established a presence in the worlds of soccer, hockey, Formula One, fashion, and entertainment by minting crypto-collectibles.
Crypto.com and DeFi the Game have agreed to collaborate on a series of NFT collections honoring worldwide cricket personalities, marking the platform’s entry into the market and a step ahead in its development into the sports ecosystem.
The team will mint digital collectibles in collaboration with legendary ICC Cricket Hall of Fame inductee Sir Vivian Richards, record-breaking cricketer Herschelle Gibbs, international cricket icons Mohammad Amir and Shoaib Malik. Exciting cricket newcomer Dan Lawrence is also joining. The NFT drop will commemorate the life and career of cricket legend Ravi Bopara on September 30, 2021.
Fans will have an innovative and exciting NFT experience
DeFi the Game Co-Founder Kasey Cummings said the NFTs will give cricket fans a new way to experience the sport.
As he puts it:
“Cricket is a vibrant sport with a global fan base. DeFi the Game is set to pioneer personal cricket NFTs. The goal is to provide an exciting and innovative way for fans to experience the sport. We are defying the status quo and building a community of cricket fans ready for the future. Working alongside an organization of Crypto.com’s caliber and raising money for some incredible charitable initiatives, I’m excited for what’s to come.”
DeFi the Game commissioned and selected all of the team’s artwork for the different collections in partnership with the athletes. NFTs on exhibit include actual redeemable items. Other intriguing experiences include meet-and-greet chances or coaching sessions with cricket players, VIP match tickets, signed memorabilia, and more.
Dean Ahmad, co-founder of DeFi the Game, stated:
“DeFi the Game and Crypto.com NFT will set the standard of the cricket fan experience for the years to come. Providing inherent value to the full spectrum of cricket fans, we have arrived to build a community. Fans can engage with one another and their heroes. NFTs are tied to real-world rewards. We will offer users unforgettable experiences that money alone simply cannot buy.”
Crypto.com NFT is quickly establishing itself as a leader in global sports NFTs. Much like its parent business, Crypto.com, is pushing crypto acceptance with innovative solutions. Some of them include lCrypo.com Visa Card, the Crypto.com Exchange, and Crypto.com DeFi Wallet.
In recent months, Crypto.com NFTs has released a number of soccer collectibles, including an NFT with SportsIcon and soccer legend Gianluigi Buffon, an NFT commemorating the 2021 Copa Italia Final in collaboration with Serie A, and a slew of other crypto-collectibles with notable sports bodies like the Argentine Football Association (AFA), The Football Technology Institute (FTI), National Hockey League (NHL), and Formula One, among others.
Executive Vice President and Global Head of NFT a Crypto.com, Joe Conyers III, stated:
“We’re beyond excited to expand our reach onto the cricket pitch. Doing so with a platform like DeFi the Game – such a diverse lineup of the sport’s most iconic talent. Billions of people from all around the world love Cricket. Our global company is welcoming the cricket community.”
