What are NFTs?
NFTs, or Non-Fungible Tokens, are digital assets that are stored and verified on the blockchain (a public ledger/database). For the first time in history, people are able to truly own their digital assets outside of the company that issued them. They are free to re-sell them – and because they are publicly accessible, third-party companies are able to verify the authenticity and ownership of an NFT without having to go through the company that issued them. This means that a company issuing an NFT can partner with other companies to provide real-world utility and access to NFT holders – knowing that NFTs are secure, unique and cannot be hacked.
There are thousands of applications of NFTs. Most current implementations revolve around digital art, music and the metaverse – but this is only the tip of the iceberg. Within the next 5-10 years, it is expected NFTs will be used for identification, events, ticketing, product ownership, retail promotions, membership, college degrees, home titles and more. Our company, CounterTEN, has developed a platform that allows brands to easily create, sell and verify NFTs for the purpose of revenue generation and brand engagement.
NFTs for the 2022 Maccabi Games
San Diego JCC Maccabi games is proud to partner with CounterTEN to offer unique digital NFT collectibles for the 2022 Maccabi Games. Every Maccabi athlete will have the opportunity to upload their headshot and customize their own NFT at no charge. These NFTs can be downloaded to any Apple/Google wallet and offer valuable discounts at participating retailers. Below is a sample of a customized NFT. This NFT lives in the Apple/Google wallet – and is downloaded in the exact same way that a person would download a boarding pass or Starbucks prepaid card. The NFT comes with a unique QR that, when scanned, shows authenticity and ownership of the NFT.
Stay tuned as we announce the list of retailers participating in the Maccabi NFT promotion. Simply bring your phone to a participating retailer, make sure you have your NFT installed to your Apple/Google wallet, and receive discounts and exclusive deals at the store!
We are looking to empower tomorrow’s collegiate and professional athletes, community leaders, business leaders and more. Any Maccabi athlete who claims their NFT will be the unique owner of this digital asset – and they are free to hold onto it or sell it on the secondary market at any future date – at a price they determine. Only one NFT is created for each athlete. If the athlete becomes a division 1 collegiate athlete, a pro athlete, a CEO of a company, a recognized entertainer – or one of a thousand other notable professions, this NFT could be worth a substantial amount of money in the future. Imagine what people would pay for Elon Musk’s high school computer club NFT if it were available? Pro athletes are selling NFTs for hundreds of thousands of dollars. We want today’s youth to feel empowered and believe in their future legacy. And the first step is to create a snapshot of who they are in 2022.
