Mit Winter Quoted in On3 Article on Campus Legends and the Growing NFT Push in NIL Space
Campus Legends, a non-fungible token company co-founded by Tim Tebow, has formed a partnership with INFLCR and will be integrated into their global exchange for the next three years. Campus Legends is the first NFT platform to be featured on INFLCR and will allow college athletes to monetize their brand and make money through the Name, Image, and Likeness business.
“There are new college athlete-focused NFT projects and businesses popping up every week, and there are more on the way,” said Mit Winter, when discussing the topic with On3. “And I think this makes a lot of sense. I’ve always viewed NIL and NFTs as a perfect match.
“College sports fans are very passionate about the teams they cheer for. They often want to own something to commemorate a certain player’s career or a special moment for a player or team. NFTs make it easy for fans to own those moments forever, while at the same time supporting their favorite athletes through NIL payments.”
