There’s a lot of NFT news this week, starting with the shutdown of the National Football League (NFL) project due to a copyright issue.
As explained by the NFL, the various teams cannot be involved in crypto and NFTs, at least until a common line is decided for all clubs.
“Clubs are prohibited from selling, or otherwise allowing within club controlled media, advertisements for specific cryptocurrencies, initial coin offerings, other cryptocurrency sales or any other media category as it relates to blockchain, digital asset or as blockchain company, except as outlined in this policy”.
The Monza Circuit launches its first NFT collection
The famous Italian circuit has decided to enter the world of non-fungible tokens and give them away to all fans who register on Stargraph during the weekend of 10-12 September, when the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix 2021 will take place.
The free NFT, designed by Miranda Biondi from Milan, will represent a reproduction of the trophy that is given to the winners of the races at the Monza Circuit.
In the future, other NFTs from the Monza Circuit will be offered for sale on the Stargraph platform, also digitizing physical works and the race tickets themselves to reward fans.
Alessandra Zinno, General Manager of the Monza Circuit, explained:
“We are happy to have entered a world that is new to us but has great potential, where the biggest sports players are already present. Being the first to arrive compared to all the other racetracks is a source of pride for us. We are working in the right direction, with an eye to the future and to sustainability, involving, through the concept of inclusiveness, all those who love motorsport and not only. The NFT project represents a starting point, and a courageous one at that, to develop other innovative activities that show how much our company loves to dare and always look beyond”.
