The legendary spinner Muthiah Muralidaran has collaborated with the NFT platform FanCraze, the subsidiary firm of Faze Technologies, to mark his presence in the ongoing wave of NFTs. In this association, the NFT platform would be minting some of the greatest bowling moments of the Sri Lankan cricketer’s career and would share it with his fanbase.
The majestic player announced this partnership through his Instagram handle with a feature video that said, ”I’m excited to announce my exclusive partnership with FanCraze with whom I spin into the cricket metaverse. You can now get to own the most iconic moments of my career and build your NFT collection with FanCraze. Tell me about your favourite Murali moment in the comments below.”
The concerned firm also revealed this exciting association on its Instagram page through feature posts that warmly invited the cricketer with the caption, ”Murali, the King of spin, spins his web in the cricket metaverse with FanCraze. The all-time highest wicket-taker in test matches and ODI history, Muthiah Muralidaran, will be exclusively launching his personal NFTs on FanCraze.”
With this move, the bowling wizard is the latest addition to the list of cricketers that have signed with the sports-tech firm. The list includes Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Andre Russell, Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal.
Devotees of the bowling giant can own some of his key achievements via collectibles in a verifiable manner and will also have the opportunity to share and trade them with other fans.
FanCraze has recently bagged some notable collaborations, leading the NFT sector with its partnerships. FanCraze has also inked a deal with the International Cricket Council (ICC) that gained them the rights to ICC’s catalogues of video and audio clips. The NFT platform has also acquired a seed funding of $17.4 million from Tiger Global, Coatue, Sequoia Capital India, Dapper Labs, and others.
