What You Need to Know About NFL All Day
The National Football League (NFL) is eager to provide its fans with an ever-changing variety of offerings.
The League has always been quick to please its fans, whether it be merchandise, games, video highlights, or anything else.
When the NFL got the opportunity to develop a new fan collectible series, it quickly took advantage of the opportunity. The innovative organization, always ready to engage with its ardent fans—developed their own non-fungible token (NFT) collection.
The NFT collection is a marketplace for digital trading cards of the biggest NFL stars, verified and authenticated by the NFL. The NFT collection will be managed by Dapper Labs, the same company that created NBA Top Shot. DapperLabs has worked with the NFL to bring their first digital trading cards to life. You can own everything from Jerry Rice's jersey to Tom Brady's helmet—provided you have enough tokens.
So, what are NFL non-fungible tokens? How do they work? What are some of the best ways to collect them and use them? Let's find out!
What NFL All-Day NFTs Are Available?
The long-awaited NFL All Day NFTs were announced on September 29, 2021. NFL, Dapper Labs, and the National Football League Players Association jointly announced on the NFL website.
However, it was said that all that is available is a website and a Discord channel. People are wondering what the status of the project is.
The release mentioned that "The all-new digital collectibles give NFL fans the unique opportunity to collect and own NFTs featuring some of the greatest and the most talked about in-game Moments from leading players week-to-week throughout the season."—when the final collection goes on sale, though, information on when that might be hasn't yet been released.
But, there is a "Join the Waitlist" button at the bottom of the homepage that will allow you to register for a drop. You will then be able to purchase items when the drop goes live.
What Can You Expect?
The collection of blockchain-based NFTs is similar to the NBA Top Shots series. The NFL All Day NFTs collection from Dapper Labs has videos of the best NFL highlights that will be saved on Flow's blockchain for life.
All About Dapper Labs
Dapper Lads, the company behind the NFL All Day NFTs, has quite the resume. Dapper Labs created CryptoKitties in 2017, one of the most popular NFTs of all time—but it also crippled the Ethereum blockchain in the process. Dapper Labs made a difficult decision that would define them for future projects to rectify this.
Dapper Labs decided to create their own blockchain technology, Flow.
One of the most significant benefits of Dapper's Flow network is that it does not require customers to pay for each transaction (aka it's gasless). Dapper also touts a network that can handle upwards of 10,000 transactions per second.
Dapper Labs has been working with some of the top names in the world to create and optimize digital collectibles for them. Some names include La Liga, UFC, NFL, and Warner Music Group.
In addition, the folks at Dapper Labs have created a wallet to help you oversee your purchases and transactions on their Flow blockchain. This wallet can help you track all of your NFTs, and the funds on NBA Top Shots can also be transferred to NFL All Day.
Brands and organizations are starting to turn to non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to create digital scarcity in their communities. Collectible digital objects have become a new way for these sports leagues to connect with their fans in an exciting new way.
The NBA Top Shot, a limited-edition basketball card collection, and the NFL All Day, an NFT-based football team that anyone can buy, are two examples of how NFTs give fans unique experiences to engage with their favorite brands.
If done correctly, NFTs could be a powerful tool for engaging audiences in new ways and for serving your business or organization's goals.
