About Shaq’s NFT Collection
“Shaquille O’Neal: The Eras of Dominance Collection” will feature five separate NFT highlights from his playing career. The NFTs will run on Ethernity, who has worked with athletes in the past. Buyers of these collectibles will win additional perks. These may include the opportunity of a private video call with Shaquille O’Neal, a custom pair of shoes and a dinner table reservation at one of his music festivals.
Shaq previously praised Ethernity after their Mohammed Ali NFT launch. However, he spoke to NFTs and said he didn’t intend to venture into crypto before he had a clearer understanding of the space. Now, he clearly must be confident enough in his knowledge. Prior to announcing this collection, O’Neal purchased two Creature World NFTs, one of which is his Twitter profile picture. In terms of Shaq’s collection, the art was done by Justin Maller, an Australian artist with 45,000 Twitter followers.
