"I'm excited about this campaign" - Gauff on her NFT collection
Coco Gauff joined fellow tennis players Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka in launching her own NFT collection.
Only a week after her best run at a grand slam saw Coco Gauff launch her NFT collection at the Autograph platform as part of its “The Future Is…” collection with pieces entitled Make a Racquet, Change the World, and Make an Impact — all minted on the Polygon blockchain.
The latter two were hand-signed by the tennis superstar, with anyone who purchases one of the NFTs by June 14 receiving access to a social media Q&A with Gauff, where a vote will be held to decide on an outfit she’ll wear in a tournament this summer.
Those who buy all three of Coco Gauff NFT offerings receive a signed print and gift card and tickets to watch her live at a future event. She said:
“I’m excited to see this campaign speak to our younger Gen Z fan bases as it focuses on creating an accessible pathway to the Web3 world for this next generation."
She further added:
“My collection is designed to inspire, and I can only hope that my tennis career is making an impact and changing the world of tennis. I always tell my fans to dream big, and it is something I really live by. I think the names that we have chosen for my NFTs are a reflection of that, and the goals I want to accomplish.”
