Today, Rohit Sharma announced his first personal NFT, which will be dropped on FanCraze later this week. The NFT contains an artwork of a Rhino along with the image of Rohit, personalized with an autograph. To conservation and spoken speaking about various social causes, Rohit has always lent his voice. This awareness of the conservation of the Great One-Horned Rhinoceros will be raised by this NFT.
The Hitman Rohit Sharma, who is managed by RISE Worldwide exclusively, India’s largest sports and entertainment company said “It is special for me to take a cause so close to my heart into newer mediums to raise awareness. We all need to work towards leaving a better world behind, and the NFT with FanCraze will allow fans to own unique artwork and spread the word around the “#Rohit4Rhinos’ campaign.”
Anshum Bhambri, the CEO of FanCraze said “To debut their collection of Player NFTs with Rohit Sharma, FanCraze is excited, as he sets the benchmark for cricket fans to engage with the next generation of sports-based assets and experiences”. He also added that it was remarkable that to create awareness for the ‘Rohit4Rhinos’ campaign, Rohit is leveraging this disruptive product with his first personal NFT. He also said “In the possibility of what happens if one combines creators, content, and commerce, this is just the beginning ”
the official cricket NFT ecosystem that would enable fans to collect cricket NFTs, engage with play-to-earn games and utilities, and own digital land is being built by FanCraze. In early February, FanCraze’s marketplace went live and has already recorded millions of dollars in revenue while it is still in early beta. The Cricket West Indies (CWI), ICC, and several yet-unannounced marquee teams, leagues, and cricket stars are the company’s current partners that give the company an NFT portfolio of more than 20,000 cricketers.
Rohit Sharma has used art as a medium to communicate to the world over the years. From wearing specially designed shoes featuring artwork to social media, Rohit has been steadfast in inspiring and supporting the world to do more. The ‘Rohit4Rhinos’ campaign was launched by Rohit Sharma in 2015, in partnership with WWF India and Animal Planet. Rohit has taken a unique approach to speaking up about the cause – in his team’s IPL 2021 opener in the past where he wore shoes with the message ‘Save the Rhino’.
