Alongside the mainstream popularization of sports and celebrity into culture over the past decades, corresponding collectibles have grown into an incredibly lucrative and in-demand market. From autographs to trading cards and everything in between, curating a rare collection has become a major bragging right for aficionados across different industries, with the sports card industry alone reaching an evaluation of $13.8 billion dollars in 2019. But as the world has transitioned into becoming increasingly digital, the collectibles market has adapted in tandem, with non-fungible tokens (NFTs) emerging as the latest and greatest non-replicable, unique form of these trophies.
Just in the first quarter of 2021 alone, NFT sales hit over $2 billion dollars — a startling 133 times larger than the same time frame of the year previous. With such a clear demand in the modern day for these digital collectibles, one marketplace has appeared leaps and bounds ahead of the competition by changing the industry through its high level NFT licensing: meet Ethernity Chain.
Built on the popular cryptocurrency Ethereum Network, the aptly named Ethernity Chain hosts an incredible catalogue of VIP-endorsed collectibles, absolutely dominating the market in its licensed celebrity and high-profile figure NFTS. With its reputation as the best in the business, a wide array of industry leaders have chosen to work with the company, from sports figures to government agencies, and everything in between.
Leaning into the ever-popular collectible sports trading cards space, Ethernity has teamed up with some of the biggest stars to create exclusive content, including collaborating with former UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva to launch a series of moving NFT cards, depicting Silva mid-signature lethal roundhouse kick. Further partnerships with major industry movers like soccer phenomenon Pelé, and, Ethernity founder Nick Rose Nterstas’s personal favorite, boxer Mohammed Ali, have likewise been incredibly successful launches for the company.
But that’s not all; bolstered by Ethernity’s reputation as the unparalleled source of high-end NFTs, the U.S. government reached out to team up with the platform. Now, Ethernity hosts a range of collectibles from U.S. Soldiers Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima, to collabs with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) featuring first man to walk on the moon Neil Armstrong’s suit, and a spacecraft rendered in honor of the historic astronaut.
The biggest license of all came recently at the end of July, Lionel Messi, who is considered to be a prolific goalscorer and the greatest soccer player of all time for many fans, he holds the record for most goals scored in La Liga (474), most hat-tricks in La Liga (36) and the UEFA Champions League (8). Honestly, the list goes on and on but safe to say he has scored the most goals ever by a player for a single club, and he will undoubtedly be sorely missed by Barcelona fans. Now fans past and present can collect rare digital art that immortalizes the hero of football in NFT form availble only on ethernity.io
With its expert team, Ethernity is always on the cutting edge of the latest and greatest NFTs, dropping new content in a timely manner. Within hours of the 2021 Copa America final, Ethernity already hosted licensed collectibles of the participating teams, the match’s champions, and the trophies from the event, a return time unmatched by any other NFT marketplace.
Not to mention, Ethernity’s platform often hosts auctions on its collectibles that benefit charity, adding an extra dose of philanthropy to the already exciting venture.
Thanks to its impressive list of VIP collaborators and commitment to excellence, Ethernity has clearly cemented itself as the premier NFT marketplace out there. Any and all collectible connoisseurs should undoubtedly keep an eye on Ethernity Chain moving forward, as the platform has countless more exciting and exclusive partnerships set to be announced in the near future.
