High-profile streamer Turner “Tfue” Tenney unveiled his very own collection of non-fungible tokens. “NFTfue King of Gaming Collection” will include three animations, a trio of bobbleheads, and a unique “King of Gaming Showdown” NFT.
“I heard about [NFTs] from a few friends of mine—mainly DJs, artists, and celebrities,” Tenney told The Washington Post. “They said, ‘Yo, no one has done a gaming one yet. You should do one.’ So a few months back we started working on this project and now we’ve come to a point where we’re ready to release it, and I’m pretty excited.”
NFTs work on blockchains, similarly to Bitcoin. However, the difference between the two is each bitcoin can be exchanged for another bitcoin, but one NFT cannot be exchanged for an identical NFT. They are used to mark ownership in a piece of digital media. This can apply to art, collectibles, and video games.
The Profit‘s Take:
Although Tfue wasn’t the first gaming/esports NFT (that honor goes to the Business of Esports), it’s no surprise that he would leverage his celebrity to get in on this latest craze. The Tfue NFTs for sale seem to be in line with his brand. I have no doubt that we will see a deluge of gaming influencers and organizations come out with their own series of NFTs to try to cash in as well.
