A famous Youtuber and now boxer is making inception into the non-fungible token (NFT) industry to promote his artwork. Logan Paul will gift NFT-based cards as part of an auction of the rare â€œPokemon 1st Edition Booster Packsâ€ game collection.
NFTs Feature Loganâ€™s Holographic Image With His Boxing Gear
According to the announcement, Paul acquired packs of PokÃ©mon cards after spending $2 million on them. The set of cards was released in 1999 by Wizards of the Coast, which contains 102 cards.
Paul will be auctioning all 36 packs of the PokÃ©mon game cards from February 4 until February 11. The auction will also take place through the sports collectibles platform, Goldin Auctions. On the other hand, the unboxing is scheduled to take place on February 27.
Along with each product auctioned, the Youtuber will give one of the 44 NFTs that feature a â€œholographicâ€ image of himself with his boxing gear. However, if people are unable to make a bid on the auction, Paul is selling a limited edition of his NFTs.
Bondly, the blockchain protocol in charge of creating and distributing Paulâ€™s NFTs, will design the photo with a Pokemon card template.
Also, they clarified that each Paulâ€™s NFT sold will have its â€œown level of rarity and limited quantity.â€ In fact, these will only be available for a limited time before they are sold on the open market.
