Let’s take sport to blockchain

Locker Token is looking to bring multiple sports, teams, players, and fans – to the concept of Sports NFTs. While the sporting memorabilia industry is estimated to be worth more than $26billion by 2021 as of now, capital movement and trade have been relatively slow.

Physical products are still the best, but they can be damaged and wear easily. However, with NFTs, these issues are somewhat removed – allowing transfers of NFTs to happen seamlessly – without risk of physical damage to the sporting moment. Locker’s goal is to target NFT lovers. As more sports teams join Locker, it will be easier for the market of Sports NFTs to grow.
