American professional boxer Floyd Mayweather is set to pound the crypto space with the launch of his new NFT and metaverse project – Mayweverse. The non-fungible tokens will feature the likeness of the “Pretty Boy”. It will provide utilities and prizes for holders, depending on the rarity of the item.
Floyd Mayweather revealed through a tweet that the NFT collection will have 5,000 NFTs – five different non-fungible token cards of 1,000 each. He highlighted that each card has a different rarity, utilities, and prizes.
The lightweight champion’s involvement in the project is notable considering his sub-par record with crypto projects in the past. Floyd Mayweather had promoted Centra Tech, a high-profile crypto scam that defrauded investors of over $25 million in 2018. The American professional boxer and DJ Khaled, who was a co-promoter, had to pay $600,000 and $150,000, respectively, for their role in marketing the project. Coffeezilla, a Twitter personality, claims that Mayweather is frantically deleting evidence of his last NFT scam. He wants to appear to be in good faith for the Mayweverse launch.
In 2021, Floyd Mayweather released the second part of his first-ever NFT collection The Legacy on Rarible. The NFTs are Immortalized, A Golden Dream, The Best Ever, including The Legacy.
