With his cooperation with Colexion, Asia’s largest licenced NFT marketplace, cricketer Yuvraj Singh is planning to create his NFT collection, marking his foray into the digital arena of NFTs (non-fungible tokens).
Yuvraj Singh’s storey is one of courage, resilience, and success. The batsman has also received the Arjuna Award in 2012 and the coveted Padma Shri Award in 2014. He has brought enormous pride to the country by winning the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2011.
Yuvraj, however, is more than just a talented cricketer; he is also an entrepreneur and humanitarian. The cricketer has just invested in Colexion, a licenced NFT marketplace that aims to become a global platform.
An NFT is a digital asset that mimics real-world aspects such as art, music, in-game goods, and movies.
They are bought and transferred online, often using cryptocurrency, and they’re usually encoded with the same software as many other cryptos. NFTs are also one-of-a-kind, or at the very least one of a very small run, and comprise unique identifying codes.
In cricket, NFTs allow us to engage with our supporters in ways we never have before. Yuvaraj expressed his delight at the opportunity to work with Colexion and share priceless mementoes from his cricketing adventure with people who have supported and loved him along the way.
Creating a digital avatar to communicate and share a love of cricket is an intriguing concept, and Colexion has enabled us to take the first steps in this direction. Yuvraj Singh expressed his happy thoughts.
Having a cricketer like Yuvraj Singh on board is fantastic. Colexion is developing engaging digital venues for him to interact with his followers, who will be able to “own” significant moments from his career. Colexion’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Abhay Aggarwal, expressed his delight.
Pankaj Advani, Glenn Maxwell, and Brendon McCullum are just a few of the huge sports stars who have worked with the NFT marketplace brand in the past. They’re always adding new players to their never-ending roster of heavy-hitters from the worlds of entertainment, lifestyle, and sports.
Today, more than 30 celebrities debuted their digital artefacts. Among them are Salim-Sulaiman, cricketers Varun Chakravarthy and Dwayne Bravo, as well as Tanuj Virwani and Aamir Ali from Bollywood and television.
