The number 1 esports organization in Southeast Asia is entering the NFT space this year, collaborating with the up-and-coming NFT generative project Uninterested Unicorns with its own customized 1/1 NFT. This also marks the first ever Esports and NFT collaboration in Asia.
An original generative NFT project by NEX10 LABS – a blockchain and NFT company based in Singapore, Uninterested Unicorns is set to have its first public sale in September 2021 with 6900 NFTs being built and sold via the Ethereum blockchain.
After the public sale, Uninterested Unicorns will also be traded on OpenSea, currently the world’s largest NFT marketplace having recorded 3.4 billion transaction volume in August 2021 alone.
This first collaboration will see EVOS Esports having its own fully customized and branded NFT via the Mythical Unicorn collection, mostly reserved for NFT and Blockchain influencers with EVOS being the first esports team on the list.
NEX10 LABS is founded and led by Terence Ting, who also founded an esports organization in Vietnam & SEA called Team Flash back in 2017.
“Our goal is to introduce the esports & gaming audience to the NFT space, through this innovative first collaboration between EVOS Esports and our Uninterested Unicorns,” said Terence Ting.
EVOS Esports, one of the biggest esports teams in Asia with multiple world championship titles in Mobile Legends, Free Fire and League of Legends: Wild Rift, has a combined following of over 100 million fans across all social media and over 500 million views monthly.
Ivan Yeo, chairman of EVOS Esports, said: “We are always exploring new spaces and the NFT space is definitely an area which is extremely interesting and the work done at Uninterested Unicorns goes inline of our goals at EVOS Esports.”
This collaboration will also be EVOS Esports’ first foray into the world of non-fungible tokens (NFT for short) and cryptocurrency, and also Southeast Asia’s first official Esports Team X NFT collaboration.
