Basketball legend Magic Johnson has a future with the bulls. 아니, he’s not returning to play for the NBA, but joining a major sports licensing company that looks favorably at the rise of the non-fungible token market.
오늘 CNBC의 Squawk Box와의 인터뷰에서, 마이클 루빈, executive chairman of sports merchandise company Fanatics, said the digital and physical collectible market was “exploding” due in part to many spending more time at home last year. Johnson just joined Fanatics’ board as an independent director and seemed to shared Rubin’s optimism.
“It’s almost a frenzy happening right now,” said Rubin. “저는 엄청난 가치가 창출 될 것이라고 생각합니다., 하지만 거기에 들어가는 사람들이 너무 많아요, I don’t think everyone’s going to be successful. I think it’s really going to be about creating incredible content, incredible product — that’s what is going to have longevity.”
Johnson compared non-fungible tokens, 또는 NFT, to the physical trading cards popular when he was in the NBA playing for the Los Angeles Lakers. The basketball legend said “the whole game has changed,” with collectible cards, jerseys, and even sneakers benefiting from advances in technology.
