The NFTs were released Saturday for selected Discord members. These NFTs offer ownership-like benefits via two-tier options comprising 12,000 editions – 1,000 for each of the league’s twelve teams that include 25 Fire priced at $25,000 each and 975 Gold priced at $5,000 each.
MoonPay facilitates all payments for NFT purchases, lowering the barriers for first-time NFT buyers to participate in the drop.
BIG3 co-founder, Jeff Kwatinetz said:
“We are excited to partner with MoonPay on our trailblazing ownership stake opportunity for fans to join.” “MoonPay makes buying NFT’s easier for everyone and they will be a tremendous resource for our NFT Drop this weekend. I hope this excites all fans to get in on the action.”
However, MoonPay’s suite of payments infrastructure products provides a seamless way for people to buy and sell cryptocurrencies and NFTs. Its design brings the easy-to-use experience consumers have come to expect from tech, allowing users to buy and sell digital assets and NFTs via credit and debit cards; Apple, Google or Samsung Pay; or bank accounts.
This announcement follows the landmark purchase of three BIG3 Team Fire-Tier allotments by renowned entrepreneurs, investors, and leaders of NFT communities DeGods, DogeCoin/MyDoge, and Krause House.
Ivan Soto-Wright, CEO and Co-founder of MoonPay said:
“Web3 is radically changing the way we approach the business of sports and BIG3 is helping to lead the way.” “This is the beginning of a creator economy renaissance. We’re honored to work with BIG3 to help onboard the world to Web3.”
