Non-Fungible Tokens (“NFTs”) are digital data stored in a blockchain, a form of distributed ledger. The ownership of an NFT is recorded in the blockchain, and can be transferred by the owner, allowing NFTs to be sold and traded. In effect the Company’s products are digital merchandise. An example would be a sports trading card – NFTs produced under this contract are one-of-a-kind trading cards. If you traded it for a different card, you’d have something completely different. The global NFT market is expected to reach $122 billion in size by 2028, with more than $17 billion in sales in
2021 and $35 Billion expected to be generated this year. The fastest growing sector within this space is the sports NFT market and the Company believes this contract win further demonstrates that the business is now very well positioned within this sector.
