It is also the first NFT collection that will be launched on their platform on Solana called HEIR.
The 6 Rings collection features snarling bulls in black, gold, silver, red, and white at a price of 2.3 SOL ($221) on Magic Eden. Jordan’s famous jersey number inspired the price of each NFT.
Each Rings holder will be a “founding fan”. They will have access to the platform that connects fans to NBA legends and current players through “huddles”. They will also get exclusive merchandise. Rarities will be available soon as their rarity tool is still in development.
Michael Jordan NFTs and The HEIR Platform
In December, Michael Jordan announced HEIR, a personalized community web 3.0 platform. The fan engagement platform is made for GenZ audiences.
Through HEIR, fans can connect to their beloved celebrity athletes. They will also receive rewards like tokens, exclusive access, and benefits. Former Nike brand manager Jeron Smith, runs the HEIR firm, with Jordan’s Son Jeffrey.
HEIR has chosen to stay within the Solana blockchain because of the lower gas fees. Also due to their alignment with the ethos of Solana as a network.
The list of celebrity athletes on the platform is not yet revealed. On Discord, HEIRs made clear that the platform will cater to all athletes from high school to professional levels.
Meanwhile, if you’re a sports fan who’d love to support your favorite athletes, you can check out these Sports NFT collections.
