Jeremy Lin, the former NBA superstar, recently announced releasing the first film NFTs for Linsanity. The documentary-based NFTs will be used to assist the Asian American community.
Project Galaxy is supporting the initiative by sharing allowlist spots across multiple campaigns. The Jeremy Lin Foundation will receive 100% of the NFT sales proceedings to assist underserved cross-racial youth programs and AAPI via community empowerment, cross-race solidarity, and narrative change.
The NFT Drop will propose unreleased behind-the-scenes and director’s cuts of the Linsanity documentary. It will also allow fans to access exclusive Metaverse content, such as a three-point shooting game. The game comes with the opportunity to meet Jeremy in a live AMA.
The former NBA superstar tweeted that despite not being an NFT expert, Jeremy is delighted to present an exclusive opportunity for fans. When Reel8 proposed the idea, Jeremy was thrilled, as it would help the Jeremy Lin Foundation and AAPI filmmakers alike.
The campaign is already on and will stay live until 24th May 2022 at 23:00 UTC. Users can get an allowlist spot by completing the mentioned tasks and collecting the vouchers, and the initiative asks for multiple simple tasks to access the allowlist spot.
For instance, the tasks involve following the former NBA personality, Project Galaxy, and Reel8 on Instagram and Twitter. Other tasks involve completing quizzes on the AMA series and Jeremy’s Discord, Twitter, and Instagram.
Once users have completed enough tasks, they become eligible to access a Mystery Box. The box offers a random ticket, and collecting enough tickets provides a priority Voucher. Project Galaxy even released an official post with a step-by-step explanation.
Given the popularity of Jeremy Lin merged with the capabilities of Project Galaxy and Reel8, the initiative is certain to be a massive hit.
