Besides owning the digital asset, owners of the NFT will receive perks such as passes for Michigan State practices during this season and direct access to video chat with Tucker himself.
Other than raising funds to support charity, Tucker hopes that NFTuck will act like a blueprint as to how athletes of Michigan State can get the best out of NFTs.
According to Tucker, it would be a student-athlete-led program and doing great. The next step involves establishing a platform for student-athletes.
More than 25 NFTs have been sold for valuations ranging between 400 and $900. Raising $50,000 is the aim to support the Boys and Girls Clubs.
Whenever an NFTuck will be resold in the future, a part of it will go to the Club’s to create revenue for the charity.
