Monumental Sports & Entertainment announced on Wednesday morning that the Washington Capitals and Washington Wizards will be getting into the NFT game. Both organizations will be offering one-of-a-kind digital assets created by DC artists in mid-July.
“We are thrilled to share these incredible digital collections with Caps and Wizards fans and provide them an accessible entry into the exciting world of NFTs, blockchain technology, and cryptocurrencies,” Ted Leonsis said in a release. “Monumental Sports & Entertainment is a digital first company, and we consistently innovate to provide fans the richest, most immersive, and state-of-the-art experiences. To have the chance to do that and partner with Naturel and Rob Zilla III, two renowned D.C. digital artists – and Caps and Wizards fans, respectively – has been phenomenal.”
