Perks, Utilities & James’s latest photos: Inside Legendary Colombian Footballer James Rodríguez’s NFT Launch on ZKSea
Dear ZKSpace community,
Recently we received photos from Mr. James Rodríguez of him signing the memorabilia dedicated to Zurda NFT holders! We will get right to it and show you some more pictures and then talk more about the NFT collection below.
For those of you who don’t yet know: the James Rodríguez Zurda NFT is a collection of 1500 exclusive and limited edition NFTs celebrating the impressive career of the Colombian football superstar. In launching his commemorative collection, James Rodríguez has joined a highly reputable list including the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has just announced his partnership with Binance, and Manchester City, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain F.C., Arsenal, the Italian and Argentinian National teams in exploring the overlap of digital assets and professional football.
NFTs are fast emerging as an effective way for athletes and sporting organizations to connect with their fanbase and build hardcore online communities. With the 2022 World Cup being scheduled to take place in November in Qatar, we foresee this trend growing strong, with many fans wanting to get involved in supporting their favorite players and teams.
ZKSea is the world’s first ZK-Rollups-based platform supporting Layer 1 to Layer 2 NFT mutual transferring and the designated NFT launch, mint, and trading marketplace of the ZKSpace ecosystem. Moving forward, ZKSea will feature some exclusive NFT drops aside from the James Rodríguez Commemorative Edition NFT collection, proving a popular alternative to Layer 1 marketplaces and allowing more people to get involved in NFTs.
ZKSea is an integral part of ZKSpace, a comprehensive Layer 2 protocol that leverages ZK-Rollups technology to provide users with an ultra-fast, inexpensive, and secure way to transact on Layer 2. For new users looking to be a part of the NFT movement, ZKSpace also features a user-friendly fiat onramp, boosting usability and democratizing access to the exciting future of NFTs to anyone worldwide.
