Last week, Colexion deployed satellite NFTs carrying valued goods of Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh into the metaverse. It has collaborated with Yuvraj, the 2011 ODI World Cup-winning batsman, to release his own augmented reality NFTs for this endeavour. A hot-air balloon launched from Earth to orbit carried Yuvraj Singh’s historic bat, which he used to score his first-ever century against Bangladesh in Dhaka in 2003.
Yuvraj, who is also an investor in Colexion, states, “I am excited to share my first NFT space journey exclusively on Colexion. Connecting with my fans on a new platform like this is exciting, and I look forward to sharing some of my most cherished possessions like the first-century bat.”
“I have always wanted to be closer to my fans, and I am happy to partner with Colexion to be able to share these precious tokens from my cricketing journey with the people who have loved and encouraged me every step of the way. I look forward to engage with them in my Colexion digital avatar,” he added, signing off from space.
The NFT contains a 3D version of the cricketer and his signed 1st-century bat to be made available for his fans. Furthermore, Colexion is creating a one-of-its-kind virtual NFT Museum for all the NFTs of Yuvraj where his fans can be a part of his life’s journey.
The founder, Abhay expresses, “We’ll launch an autographed cricket bat along with a 3D statue of the cricketer, providing an exclusive opportunity to fans to own his digital collectibles. Colexion enables fans to witness this historic event and become a part of this massive revolution. We are creating interesting digital spaces for him to engage with his fans who will also be now able to ‘own’ special moments of his career.”
Colexion seeks to establish its impression through this initiative by becoming the first-ever NFT marketplace to launch exclusive NFT in space through high-end technology and innovation. Colexion is a platform that permits fans to buy, trade, and sell unique digital collectibles in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Earlier, Colexion has founded the world’s biggest NFT drop of 30 celebrities in the form of trump cards, including music composer duo Salim-Sulaiman, cricketers Varun Chakravarthy and Dwayne Bravo, and Bollywood and TV stars Tanuj Virwani and Aamir Ali, among others. Ventured by Colexion, interactive trump cards include photos and models in 3D and 2D layouts of the celebrities.
