RisingStar Announces NFT Drop With The Professor on Crypto.com Platform on Sept. 23
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- RisingStar and street-baller The Professor have partnered up to use the latest volumetric capture technology and CGI to create "Break Your Ankles" NFT Series. The drop features The Professor's top 6 crossover moves where he "breaks the ankles" of some of the World's most well-known icons (Obama, Trump, Elon Musk, Mark Cuban, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Kanye West, and Gary Vee.) Most known for playing on international AND1 Mixtape tour, The Professor is a streetballer and actor.
The Professor approached RisingStar to create an NFT series with Crypto.com. RisingStar's volumetric captures are photorealistic, thereby allowing every intricacy of The Professor's movement to be translated to his holograms. RisingStar then took The Professor's holograms and placed him in seven animated worlds rivaling against different pop culture icons. The NFTs will be available to the public on Crypto.com on September 23rd. For each NFT purchased, the owner will receive raffle tickets for a chance to win the opportunity to spend a day and play one-on-one with the professor along with a $20K cash prize.
"We're thrilled to work with The Professor on an NFT drop on Crypto.com. Being at the crux of this cutting-edge technology allows us to create unparalleled user experiences for our fans. Gamification of NFTs with AR opens up a new forefront, where users not only can hold the NFTs in the wallet, but now they can co-create with it and post on their favorite social media. We can't wait to connect with millions of global users on Crypto's platform," said Attila Kralik, founder of RisingStar.
From AND1 to Spiderman Basketball, The Professor has been breaking ankles and entertaining crowds for decades," said Crypto.com Executive Vice President and Global Head of NFT Joe Conyers III. "What he does on the court is incredible, and we're so excited to offer some of his signature moves in NFT form — in such an engaging and topical way."
