NFT Collection of NBA great Shaquille O'Neal to run on Ethernity Chain
Retired NBA star Shaquille “Shaq” O'Neal will launch his NFT collection in collaboration with Ethernity Chain that will feature five highlight scenes from his playing career at Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic, and Miami Heat.
Titled "Shaquille O'Neal: The Eras of Dominance Collection," the NFTs will be available for purchase on October 15.
According to CoinDesk, buyers of Shaq’s collectibles will win perks like the opportunity of a private video call with O'Neal, a custom pair of shoes, and a dinner table reservation at one of the NBA great’s music festivals.
The 4-time NBA champion lauded Ethernity when its Ethereum Layer 2 platform launched Muhammad Ali's NFT collection, which hinted at a potential collaboration.
Shaq had earlier stated that he won’t venture into cryptocurrency until he had a clearer understanding of how it works.
The NBA great made his formal entry in cryptocurrency when he bought two Creature World NFTs, one of which used his Twitter profile picture.
