The Saga of how New York Knicks synergized with Sweet to launch their exclusive 3D NFT Collection
Blockchain and gaming is indeed a deadly combination given we witnessed massive traction over these activities in the past few months. With the gaming industry levelling up the playground in the Blockchain space, one such fascinating example is about Sweet and New York Knicks.
Emotions went high on the 23rd of May 2021 as 15,000 die-hard fans of the Knicks turned up at Madison Square Garden for the first round of the NBA playoffs. And even several days after the event, the aftereffects could yet be seen across New York City as swathes of fans took the celebration to the streets.
Thus, as the sound of their infectious songs filled the air, one would hardly be mistaken to think they had wished it possible to retain a “real” piece of the fun until the next season.
If only they could force pieces of tiles off the floor of the arena or just grab some beautifully worked concrete slabs. It mattered little; the flames of passion in them meant they’d go to any extent to preserve the memory of the play-off night.
However, the Knicks themselves seem to have anticipated the massive show of love and support and had already made plans to make the game a memorable one after the season.
Sweet NFT platform to release 5 limited edition 3D NFT tickets
To start the 2020-2021 season, the New York Knicks had revealed it would launch 5 Limited Edition 3D NFT Tickets on the Sweet NFT platform, coming on July 27th.
Sweet will make these rare NFT collections accessible to anyone. NFTs for the everyday fans and the high-end crypto-enthusiasts. That is, the tickets are not exclusively meant for hard-core Knicks supporters alone; general sports fans and even the average NFT enthusiasts can get their hands on these limited pieces.
According to the Sweet platform, the 3D NFT tickets will be easy to claim and use as the owners will be able to display them to their close circle and beyond.
Tom Mizzone, co-founder and CEO of the Sweet goes further to say;
“Sweet understands that the future of collectibles is digital, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with the Knicks to launch their first-ever NFT collection, helping them to create a new way to digitally engage with their loyal fans,”
“Our platform allows enterprise brands unmatched flexibility to bring digital collectibles and experiences to market in unlimited ways, and we’re excited to add New York and the Knicks to our roster of partners rolling out incredible collections in the coming months.
How Sweet NFT solution works
While commenting on how it is making the Knicks NFT collection easy to acquire, Sweet said a key factor that drives its decision-making process is its to create a user-focused platform. To make the adoption of NFTs mainstream, their accessibility is one aspect that must be thoroughly addressed. Sweet believes every NFT user should be able to showcase their NFT on their devices (desktop or mobile).
It should also be possible for users to buy NFTs without going through the sort of technical difficulty that requires ample knowledge of cryptocurrencies. However, thinking about the possibility of building an NFT ecosystem that satisfies the above requirements is one thing. And translating those thoughts to reality is a different thing altogether.
Though it’s almost impossible to make gas fees and some of the more complex aspects of purchasing digital assets go away, Sweets promised to make the buying experience as seamless as it is using popular online applications such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, etc.
Thus, a would-be user need not understand the sophisticated architecture behind blockchain networks such as Ethereum, much less the currency built on them. Sweets will provide a simple crypto-based wallet for users to save NFTs with. Sweet simplifies NFT purchase via intuitive UX/UI with the World’s Simplest NFT Wallet. There is absolutely no need of any MetaMask or Crypto wallets for the same.
The Future of NFT Revolution is here
According to Sweet, its simplification of the purchasing process lies in the few simple steps that are required to buy the digital assets on its site.
Knicks fans or anyone outside the category can buy any of the five 3D Knicks NFT limited editions using any payment method preferred by them. At the first stage, they will be asked to register with their mobile numbers or email addresses. After the confirmation of the email and phone number, the next step will be to set up their login password. Then, that’s all.
With the registration done, fans can log in to their wallet to view and flip their 3D Knicks NFT. Other details like the sequence number, the NFT description referencing the Knicks game that is being represented, and the ERC721 token authentication sign will be displayed as well.
Soon, Sweets has promised to integrate features that allow fans to display their NFTs to viewers all around the world. Sweet beliefs doing so is another strategic way to accelerate the mass acceptance of NFT technology as the world today goes crazy for online content in video or image formats
