Rumble Kong League: the basketball NFT collection involves NBA players
The Rumble Kong League (RKL) is an NFT collection of 10,000 unique ERC721 tokens, each randomly assembled from a list of more than 100 hand-drawn traits, creating a unique-looking Kong-style basketball player.
Built to bring the exciting basketball games to web and mobile gaming, giving anyone a chance to compete for the title, the Rumble Kong League involves a number of NBA players.
Some RKL collectors include famous NBA finalists Stephen Curry, Gary Payton II, Andre Iguodala and Damion Lee, and other stars such as Paul George, JaVale McGee, Hassan Whiteside, Cole Anthony, Josh Hart, Tyrese Haliburton and Malik Beasley.
The initial sale of these tokens took place in July 2021 and they sold out in the first week, generating over 2,000 holders. No more Kongs of the genesis will ever be minted again.
The latest news on Non-Fungible Tokens
Non-Fungible Token (NFT) projects continue to grow. In the last week alone, the likes of Lamborghini, Coca-Cola, and Samsung have been in the news for their projects.
In particular, Lamborghini is collaborating with NFT PRO and INVNT.ATOM to take its supercars to places in space that the traveler can visit and discover, collecting new NFTs every month for eight months until March 2023.
Samsung, on the other hand, has signed an MOU with six companies collaborating to build the Galaxy NFT ecosystem.
And finally, Coca-Cola has given away new NFTs on Polygon to existing owners of its previous NFTs to celebrate the anniversary of International Friendship Day together.
