The NFT Program will be a collection of 10,000 totally unique GILL River Monster mascots on the ethereum blockchain containing different characteristics that will wear the jersey numbers of real River Monster players.
"NFTs represent a unique way to own a part of Seguin River Monsters history," says General Manager Scott Barry. "No 2 are identical and they are a relic of our program. Each purchase helps to keep us playing ball in Texas' most prestigious summer collegiate league."
What are NFTs anyways?
Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, are pieces of digital content linked to the blockchain, the digital database underpinning cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ethereum. NFTs are unique and not mutually interchangeable, which means no two NFTs are the same. Think of Pokémon cards, rare coins or a limited-edition pair of Jordans: NFTs create scarcity among otherwise infinitely available assets — and there's even a certificate of authenticity to prove it. NFTs are typically used to buy and sell digital artwork and can take the form of GIFs, tweets, virtual trading cards, images of physical objects, video game skins, virtual real estate and more.
What is unique about the Seguin River Monsters NFTs?
The Seguin River Monsters are a summer collegiate wood bat baseball team that participates in the Texas Collegiate League (TCL), which is the most premier summer collegiate league in the entire Southwest USA. The Seguin River Monsters Mascot is named 'GILL' who is a green river monster from the depths of the Guadalupe River that sports a cowboy hat. The Seguin River Monsters are minting 10,000 completely different and unique versions of GILL on the ethereum blockchain and will be listed on OpenSea.io for purchase, the largest NFT Marketplace on Planet Earth. Each GILL will have many different traits including different bats, different jerseys, different background locations, different mouth styles, different eye styles, different hat styles and more. Each GILL will wear a jersey number 1-50, of which real Seguin River Monsters players will be wearing throughout the years. Own a piece of River Monsters history by purchasing one, and who knows, you may be holding the jersey number of the next MLB All Star to come out of the Texas Collegiate League. (Hunter Pence, Jake Arrieta, Paul Goldschmidt, Brandon Belt, Matt Carpenter). Each purchase helps fund the Seguin River Monsters.
"We are looking forward to launching our GILL NFTs and continuing our mission to building one of the best summer collegiate baseball programs in the country. Please consider investing in one of our NFTs as it will directly help fund our operations to make Seguin a hub for the best summer college baseball in the country." - Mike Gigliotti, CEO & Chairman.
