Technology company RECUR announces the debut of NFTU, a collegiate sports NFT marketplace where fans can go to collect their most cherished moments. NFTU’s inaugural series of college basketball collectibles is called “Tip Off.” The series enables fans to purchase NFTs from 50 universities and 100+ current and former college players, including Ja Morant, Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Jaylen Brown, Klay Thompson, Bradley Beal, NaLyssa Smith, Drew Timme, and many more.
NFTU.com is working with a network of over 50 universities and hundreds of athletes to provide an opportunity for fans to own and share their college sports collectibles. The company’s partners include Learfield, CLC, Brandr, Veritone, and Pac-12.
In a released statement, RECUR co-founder Zach Bruch says “With the launch of NFTU and our celebrity roster of athletes, we’re pioneering the future of fandom and building a community of college sports fans that spans generations. NFTs wouldn’t exist without a loyal community, and RECUR is committed to rewarding college sports fans by giving them the chance to own, collect and truly be a part of their favorite teams. Now, you don’t have to just be emotionally invested in your college sports team. You can literally become a part of it and own a piece of sports history.”
Starting March 14, new drops in the form of Cases will launch every week. Cases contain multiple NFTs that come in four different rarities – Common, Premium, Rare and Ultra Rare – with rarity being determined by both the player and the moment. Each Case includes either a Limelight, an NFT of the athlete’s image, or Flashback, an NFT of a highlight video.
Case content and rarity prices are as follows:
- Common NFTs at $10
- Premium NFTs at $25
- Rare NFTs at $125
- Ultra Rare NFTs at $500
In addition to owning a piece of their favorite team, fans can participate in NFTU Challenges to trade in their NFTs for higher rarity and even more coveted collectibles, as well as visit the NFTU Marketplace to sell their NFTs.
Pre-Registration begins today, with the platform officially launching for RECUR Pass Holders on March 14th and the general public on March 15th. RECUR passholders receive early access to weekly Case drops.
