Comments are off for this post.
The Alpha: Flow recently announced a groundbreaking new initiative with Ticketmaster. Via the Flow blockchain, all Ticketmaster event organizers can now link NFTs with each attendee’s ticket. The NFTs are positioned to offer ticket-owning event attendees richer experiences. Primarily, the linked NFTs hope to offer Ticketmaster eventgoers Web3 analogs to the IRL events, where they receive the NFTs. Recipients of linked NFTs may gain access to “VIP experiences,” according to Flow. Otherwise, the NFTs can simply serve as blockchain memorabilia for events. The execution of each NFT ticket tie-in is up to the event organizer. Why it matters: Although many […]

As great as it has been to see young artists starting their careers in the NFT space, this technology has also opened up loads of opportunities for established brands and IPs to better engage their audiences.

Skateboarding NFTs and the Explosive Rise of ‘ABD Collectibles’

Comments are off for this post.
“During the pandemic, I got super into collecting Kobe Bryant cards and Pokémon cards,” professional skateboarder Mike Mo Capaldi told nft now, recounting how his upcoming NFT project came to be.  At 33-years-old, Capaldi was at the height of his skateboarding career when Instagram came onto the scene. Skateboarders, perhaps more than athletes in any other sport, had to get with the times or they’d be left behind. “Our careers really were the bridge between the old model of skateboarding with magazines and video parts, and posting footage every day on Instagram,” Capaldi added.  Given that the skateboarding industry isn’t on […]
