Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have become a hot commodity in the crypto space and have turned millions of people into millionaires. The massive adoption of the trend is proof that it is a viable investment opportunity, but what's most interesting is the fun and innovative ways investors are using NFTs to make passive income. For sports fans and athletes around the world, their obsession is about their favorite teams and the pleasure of the game—and for them, cryptocurrency seems not to be part of that fandom. However, that is changing.
NILWIRE was established as a Sports NFT marketplace to encourage the adoption of NFTs by athletes and fans. The marketplace is excited to announce the launch of its first NFT collection, Ballers Series 1, which will pave the way for the company's mission to provide a platform where sports enthusiasts can become part of the NFT goldmine.
“The NFT market is growing exponentially and many people are getting on the trend and making cool money for themselves,” explained Na'a Moeakiola, CEO and founder of NILWIRE. “With the launch of our marketplace and first NFT collection, we are well on our way to fulfilling our mission which is to gender the inclusion of fans and athletes into the NFT space. Our mission is to help athletes monetize their name, image, and likeness using blockchain technology and bringing value to their fans.”
NILWIRE is providing value both for athletes and fans. They are building a community where athletes, fans, and influencers can connect on a peer-to-peer marketplace. The goal of this initiative is to help athletes beyond sports and provide them a network with fans on another level. It is sports on steroids, an integration of all the lovely bits, aspects, and elements of the sporting world into the NFT space.
Aside from the global mission to achieve the fusion of sports and NFTs, NILWIRE also seeks to promote Polynesian culture, depicting how the Polynesia region has some of the finest athletes in the world. The project aims to highlight some of the big names from the region schooling in USC, UCLA, Oregon, Washington, Ohio State, TCU and OU. Some of these names include Michael Jackson 3, Tuli Tuipulotu, Mase Funa, Zion Tupuola-Fetui, Noah Daniels, Jonah Laulu, Ale Kaho, and Darius Muasau to mention a few.
“We believe NFTs are the future,” continued Na'a Moeakiola. “At NILWIRE, we are bringing the Polynesian culture into the Web3 space. So far, we’ve partnered with athletes from 25+ schools to bring unity with our Polynesian culture and community.”
NILWIRE was created by brothers and former athletes who saw an opportunity in the NFT space to help athletes enhance their brand. The company is passionate in building a community using NFT marketplace technology and their smart contract capabilities. NILWIRE strives to be a marketplace hosting premier athletes from all over the country to bring value and experiences to fans like never.
