Miami-based sports tech company DPC Labs announces the release of a new NFT marketplace, along with an initial collection of digital player cards.
The initial batch of player cards will feature a mix of youth, collegiate, and professional athletes, including:
- Ahmmon Richards, University of Miami Football
- B.J. Johnson, Orlando Magic
- Sam Singer, University of California Berkeley Basketball
- Jhon Matos, seven-time Boxing National Champion
In addition to the player card, athletes involved will be providing card holders additional incentives. Examples include but aren’t limited to, exclusive access to events, merchandise & memorabilia, meet & greet opportunities, or a virtual FaceTime with the athlete; all intended to foster an exclusive level of engagement awarded to card holders of an athlete.
Youth and amateur athletes will be able to pay to create their own NFT player card that their friends and family can own as exclusive memorabilia. DPC enables Youth and Amateur athletes to have the same quality of player cards as their favorite college and professional athletes.
College and Professional athletes are partnering with DPC Labs to bring their digital player cards to life through a unique model that aims to generate income on their valuable NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness), open a new engagement between athletes and fans, and most importantly, educate athletes about the expansive potential of the Web3 space. DPC’s digital player cards are hosted on the Solana blockchain network.
