Six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady is backing a new major development in the nonfungible token industry by launching his own NFT platform. The new NFT platform will target some of the biggest figures in sports, entertainment, fashion, and pop culture and provide a tool for unique digital collectibles, Tom Brady told CNN earlier this week. The platform is dubbed Autograph and is expected to launch this spring.
“The platform will bring together “some of the world’s most iconic names and brands.”
Autograph CEO Dillon Rosenblatt said that the NFT platform would bring together “some of the world’s most iconic names and brands with best in class digital artists” to create and launch NFT pieces to a community of fans and collectors. It will also have interactive offerings like live auctions and physical product drops, as well as in-person experiences. According to the CNN report, Brady and entrepreneur Richard Rosenblatt will serve as co-chairs at Autograph. The NFT sector has attracted some big names this year.
The NFT platform is being led by some known names.
According to Autograph’s official website, the board of advisors and chairs also includes Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer, Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino, DraftKings co-founders Jason Robins and Paul Liberman, as well as Dawn Ostroff, advertising business officer at Spotify. Many NFT platforms and marketplaces allow creators and fans to sell and buy NFTs, including the Winklevoss brothers’ Nifty platform. Several global crypto firms have been scrambling to make their own NFT platforms and divisions to meet increasing demand in recent times. India’s largest crypto exchange, WazirX, French crypto hardware wallet supplier Ledger, and cryptocurrency exchange Crypto.com are some of the platforms to move into the NFT space this year.
