    Simone Byers is an Olympic champion, winning over 30 medals. She also blazed the trail as an athlete who championed physical positivity and mental health awareness.

    Like many of her fellow influencer-athletes (athletes who use their high-profile status to promote the brands they associate with), Byers is leveraging her accomplishments as an Olympian. She includes her 19 gold medals to grow her brand through her upcoming NFT collection.

    The popularity of her NFT merchandise has inspired the gymnast to release a new batch of tokens soon. A big part of traditional collectibles is that you can trade them on the secondary market. This is a trait that makes them very popular among sports fans.

    Join the NFT craze

    NFTs are unique pieces of digital images or video content that people can use as collectibles, artistic expressions, or status symbols. The beauty of this new blockchain approach is that once it’s cast, no one can take away your digital commodity. And, it will only become more valuable as time goes on and engagement increases.

    Just like any other cryptocurrency collectible on the market, the value of Byers’ NFTs will fluctuate as they gain or lose popularity. In the meantime, fans can buy them on a decentralized marketplace.

    Starting Tuesday, Autograph will be offering Simone Biles NFTs, and if you’re a valid holder of a Simone Biles preseason pass, you can purchase the limited-edition collection that day at 8 a.m. EST. All other NFT holders will be able to join the queue two days later, according to Autograph.

    Byers’ NFT collection

    To commercialize the collection, Byers once again worked with Crypto Kitties to create a collection of 16,600 collectibles. Each is influenced by several tricks Byers has mastered. Each one is based on one of her world-famous, gravity-defying moves. The designs also represent different stages of the creative process.

    One of the newest additions to the NFT Marketplace is the NFT platform Autograph. which allows customers to purchase physical goods. This includes athletic shoes, sports equipment, electronics, and more. Buyers can “unlock” these physical goods on the site with tokens, which you can purchase via cryptocurrency.

    Final Thoughts.

    As one of the most recognizable faces in the collectibles industry, celebrities often use NFTs to create digital assets that consumers can buy. It’s a way for the rich and famous – and their fans – to make money from the merchandise associated with their brands.

    Indeed, Simone Biles is the most decorated female gymnast in Olympic history, and she has left a lasting mark on the sport. Now, to honor that memory, fans can immortalize her iconic moves with digital trading cards.
