Last week, Simplicity Esports and Gaming Company announced it was partnering with Project Token and the University of Central Florida Blockchain Innovation Lab to create, sell, and mint non-fungible tokens. According to Yahoo Finance, Non-fungible tokens are specialized units of data, secured on a blockchain digital ledger, that can represent creative works such as video, audio, and art.
Roman Franklin, the President of Simplicity Esports, said, “through an introduction from a mutual board member, we have secured an excellent partner to jumpstart our future in NFTs. I see a huge opportunity for the minting of NFTs as a digital form of merchandise for esports fans, and the use of blockchain in general to create a more secure and efficient infrastructure for the global esports and gaming industries.”
Corey Lanzing is the CEO of Project Token. He is very excited about the partnership. ”We couldn’t be more thrilled to enter a space shared with the likes of NBA Top Shop and others,” he said. “We are looking forward to launching this collection with a leader in esports and gaming, in the coming months.”
Simplicity Esports is a well-known brand in the gaming industry. Some of the titles they support include Apex Legends, PUBG Mobile, Overwatch, League of Legends, and several EA Sports games.
