LaMelo Ball Collectibles Launch: all the details on the sale

Anyone who’s been following the Charlotte Hornets this year knows that LaMelo Ball is a force to be reckoned with. He’s looking at not only grabbing Rookie of the Year, but pioneering a new way of connecting with his 6.8 million Instagram followers and new fans who join his community every day (including his new Discord server with nearly 3,000 members already). Ether Cards is teaming up with Chainlink and Playground Studios to transform LaMelo’s fans from spectators into active participants in his success.

Ether Cards cardholders get exclusive discounts:

OG: 10%
Alpha: 5%
Founder: 2.5%

Discounts are integrated into the sale contract and will be applied immediately.

Ballers can select from 4 tiers featuring rewards based on statistical performance and career milestones. This dynamic collection uses Chainlink oracles that integrate real-world statistical information into the NFTs, giving them dynamic capabilities. With tiers based on points, steals, assists, and awards, fans can lay down their cards with predictions on how they think his stats will develop. Every card gives access to curated giveaways, VIP access and participation in his endorsement deals as well as future benefits that will be unlocked based on LaMelo’s in-game stats. All cards will also be eligible for a drop of 500 randomly distributed NBA game tickets.

The collection includes 10,000 cards with 4 tier starting at ETH 0.01. The highest tier, GOLD Evolve Edition activates the exclusive Gold Sun artwork as well as evolving benefits if LaMelo wins Rookie of the Year. GOLD EVOLVE cards also give VIP access to LaMelo himself and other guaranteed rewards.
