MEXC AMA with Micky Irons from SportsIcon.
Guest: Micky Irons, Chief Marketing Officer of SportsIcon.
Miranda: Today, we’re honored to have Micky Irons, CMO of SportsIcon here to give us a more intuitive introduction to their unique project.
Micky Irons, would you like to say hello and introduce yourself?
Micky Irons: Hi everyone, my name is Micky Irons.
I’m the Chief Marketing Officer here at SportsIcon.
I have a background in developing global marketing strategies, brand strategy, PR/Media planning and business development among many other things.
Questions from the community:
Miranda: What is Sportsicon? Can you share with us more in detail?
Micky: SportsIcon creates cinematic NFTs in collaboration with athletes that commemorate the journey through their lives and sporting careers that made them the icons they are. While regular digital content can be shared unlimitedly online, digital content in the form of an NFT becomes a unique asset that has provenance, originality and authenticity
Miranda: cinematic NFTs with athletes, it sounds very interesting😍
Miranda: How about Sportsicon’s unique selling points as compared to other similar projects in the industry? Since there are lots of NFT projects in the market
Micky: SportsIcon was launched to meet the specific needs of fans, athletes, teams and managers. The problem we saw had two faces: first, people became detached from their sporting heroes after the athlete’s active participation in sport ceased, and second, athletes and managers were unsure of how to engage with the burgeoning NFT market. Fans want to connect with their icons, and sports legends want to give something back to their fans — what was lacking was the framework to do so.
Miranda: Can you tell us the role of $ICONS in Sportsicon? and aslo its tokenomics?
Micky: Sure, sorry I just had some technical issues
$ICONS is the native token of the SportsIcon platform. It can initially be used for NFT purchases, participation in the liquidity pool, staking, incentivization and governance. $ICONS will have several more use cases that will expand over time.
Although the SportsIcon platform is based on the Flow blockchain for the creation of NFTs, $ICONS is an ERC-20 Ethereum token and ported also to Binance Smart Chain. It is regulated by strong tokenomics that keep its supply and demand in check.
Holding $ICONS means:
Discounts on NFTs on the SportsIcon website.
Priority-access to drops for holders.
Exclusive access to athlete creator coins.
Participation in liquidity pools and staking.
Access to exclusive Telegram and Discord groups through our community membership program.
Access to exclusive Icon content.
Participation in launchpad sales.
Sports metaverse benefits.
Miranda: Are there any exciting news or updates with regards to Sportsicon that you would like to share with the users?
Micky: Yeah, we’ve just signed Floyd Mayweather and started adapting the Metaverse 🤐
There’s so much more to come, especially ICONS. They’ll be a huge announcement in January, are you all ready?
Miranda: If you were to summarize your project in ONE word, what would it be? Why?
Micky: As a first-mover in the sports NFT space, SportsIcon is uniquely positioned to become the pacesetter for other projects in the market. We’re building out our vision by expanding the sports metaverse through partnerships, by improving and expanding NFT utility and with our gaming launchpad dedicated to sports titles.
Miranda: So the word should be: first-mover? if we can call it one word
Micky: Well done Miranda, that’s correct 🤗
