Yuvraj Singh sends maiden ODI century bat into space

The stylish batsman also has invested in Colexion.

Yuvraj Singh partnered with Colexion on his 40th birthday to launch his non-fungible-tokens (NFTs). Colexion being Asia’s biggest NFT marketplace managed to send satellite NFTs containing the maiden ODI century bat of the retired international cricketer in the metaverse pushing huge boundaries through his initiative.

In this process, a hot air balloon was launched from earth to orbit that carried Yuvraj Singh’s bat that he used to score his maiden ODI century against Bangladesh in 2003. With a never-seen-before customised video for his fanbase making this the first-ever minted NFT to be sent in orbit. The legendary all-rounder teamed up with Colexion to release his NFTs in augmented reality for this record-breaking initiative and the video of the whole space journey would be made accessible for the fans in the last week of December or early next year.

On this historic move, Yuvraj Singh said, “I am excited to share my first NFT space journey exclusively on Colexion. Connecting with my fans on a new platform like this is exciting and I look forward to share some of my most cherished possessions like the first-century bat. I have always wanted to be closer to my fans and I am happy to partner with Colexion to be able to share these precious tokens from my cricketing journey with the people who have loved and encouraged me every step of the way. I look forward to engage with them in my Colexion digital avatar.”

Commenting on this first-ever NFT launch, the founder and CEO of Colexion, Mr Abhay Agarwal said “We’ll launch an autographed cricket bat along with 3d statue of the cricketer, providing an exclusive opportunity to fans to own his digital collectibles. Colexion enables fans to witness this historic event and become a part of this massive revolution.”

After this revolutionary initiative, Colexion aims to develop a virtual NFT museum for all the notable moments of the southpaw while becoming the first and foremost marketplace to release exclusive NFTs in space through high-end technology.

The stylish batsman also has invested in Colexion other than dropping his collectibles to unlock new NFT values in the metaverse.
