“What really struck me about the NFT space was the strong digital communities being built around certain projects, and the seemingly limitless uses of the technology. It’s exactly what we set out to do with Fan Controlled Football, an IRL football league with fans engaging digitally, leveraging technology like never before in the world of sports. 888, Steve Aoki, and Knights of Degen each provide strong, loyal communities to build these teams around. Layering in the Ballerz NFT as the “club membership” allows us so many unique ways to increase engagement for our players and sponsors and opens up new opportunities to interact with our fans.”
