Non-fungible tokens are (in essence) digital trading cards that enable the initial owner to unlock additional perks. They’ve taken off in the sports world as the NBA’s success with NBA Top Shot has inspired others to get in on the action.
The initial owner of Press’ card will get a personalized cameo video from Press as well as re-inc Reset the Table cards signed by Press, Tobin Heath, Meghan Klingenber and Megan Rapinoe.
The card is part of the Gamer NFT collection, a set of cards founded by Tobin Heath that “commemorate the fight for gender and racial equity in sports and beyond.” Additionally, 7% of proceeds from the cards will go to Black Girls Code, a non-profit organization that helps provide technology education for Black girls across the country.
Other NFTs include Meghan Klingenberg, Tobin Heath and Ada, the virtual mascot for the collection. The cards are the first NFTs done by female Olympic athletes.
