Binance launches NFTs from avenue artist Lushsux, Carlton’s Eddie Betts and 6 different Aussies – Stockhead
The world’s largest provider of cryptocurrency exchanges and blockchain ecosystems has brought Carlton’s Eddie Betts and seven other Australian celebrities and content creators on board as they prepare to launch an NFT marketplace late next week.
Binance’s non-fungible token (NFT) market will include NFTs from street artist Lushsux and elite crossfitter James Newbury, as well as famous sports moments from Carlton veteran Eddie Betts and Socceroos legend John Aloisi.
There are also NFTs by designer and artist Bianca Beers; Crypto meme artist Lil Bubble; Melbourne-based sneaker artist, Sekure D; and Sydney photographer and designer Demas Rusli.
Binance’s marketplace goes live on June 24th and the eight Aussies are part of an invitation-only “100 Creators” campaign that puts creators from around the world in the spotlight.
“We believe these eight creators are a feast for the eyes for Binance NFT Marketplace users, ”said Helen Hai, director of Binance NFT.
The marketplace will share the same account system as Binance.com, which means users can access the marketplace and trade with their existing Binance accounts, the platform said.
It wasn’t clear how much the NFTs would sell, but Rusli is selling his video NFTs elsewhere for 0.50 ETH (around AUD 1,700).
For those who haven’t heard of it, non-fungible tokens are unique digital coins. They can be used to represent art, music, real estate, in-game items, and other assets.
Retired NBA star Allen Iverson and Def Jam recording founder Russell Simmons are among the other celebrities on the 100 Creators initiative.
Just finished an original 5 track EP
Each song will be an NFT with visuals that took me months to create 😁
