The Atlanta Hawks, in collaboration with Atlanta-based GigLabs, today unveiled the “Harry the Hawk” collection, the first iteration of the limited non-fungible token (NFT) team. Non-fungible tokens can digitally represent any asset, including online-only assets such as digital works of art March.
Harry’s Hawk collection features four different types of NFTs. At a basic level, each winning bidder will own the original digital artwork. Certain NFTs will also unlock different physical items or predetermined experiences, such as a $500 gift card for Hawks Shop, the official team store, located at State Farm Arena, a signed jersey to other exclusive in-person experiences and more.
“We strive to continue to improve the way we engage with our global fan base,” said the CEO of the Hawks, Steve Koonin “As we launch these one-of-a-kind NFTs, we are thrilled to provide fans with opportunities and experiences that are unlike any other. they had been possible before”.
