CONMEBOL and Ethernity Chain partner to drop exclusive NFT collection
ISL Agency sealed the deal between CONMEBOL, the governing body for soccer in South America, and Ethernity Chain to create the first Copa America official NFT collection, in celebration of the tournament’s 47th edition.
Argentina and Brazil went head to head in the final of the legendary Copa America, led by their iconic stars and former Barça teammates, Leo Messi and Neymar, with Argentina defeating Brazil by 1-0 and Messi winning the prestigious “Goleador ” trophy, awarded to the tournament’s top goal scorer.
To commemorate the tournament, first hosted in 1916, CONMEBOL joined Ethernity Chain to mint both trophies as exclusive NFTs. The “Goleador” trophy quickly sold out for $4,560.85, while the Copa America trophy is going for bids over $2.000.
This epic NFT edition, created by Ethernity Chain and ISL Agency, includes cards of Brazil and Argentina powerhouses, as well as a special collectible entitled Copa America 2021 Champions, which also sold out in just a few hours.
Following Ethernity’s philanthropic character, a portion of the Copa America NFTs proceeds will go to charitable causes.
“The Copa America first official NFT collection was only the first step to immortalize epic soccer competitions and stars as NFTs. We have been working closely with Ethernity Chain to drop more exclusive editions that will delight the fans and honour the sport and its greatest players.” – explains Marc Segarra, ISL Managing Partner.
What are NFTs?
NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are “one-of-a-kind” assets in the digital world that can be bought and sold as a certificate like any other piece of property but, unlike most digital folders, can’t be replaced, traded for something else or duplicated.
