NFTs Fit For a Warrior

NFTs have found actual usage and applications around various concepts, particularly in gaming, music, arts, artifacts - and even sports. Just today, according to the announcement coming from the nba.com blog, the team has just made the record of being the first to launch an actual NFT collection. Partial proceeds will go to the Warrior Community Foundation, making this both a landmark for crypto awareness and a charity event. 


Golden State Warriors Legacy NFT collections


The community foundation, which has granted over $22 million in impact for Bay Area education equity since its inception in 2012, will be part of the beneficiaries of the auction proceeds after the NFT collections are sold out.


The officially licensed digital collection will include the Golden State Warriors Legacy NFT Collection, which commemorates the team’s six NBA championships, including digital collectibles of their most iconic games in franchise history. There will be limited editions available for purchase, including two separate NFTs of which only one will be produced.
