Modern skating is recognized as both a sport and an art, and Yuto Horigome acknowledges both with a one-of-a-kind NFT. The nonfungible token commemorates both the very first Olympics skateboarding event and the gold-winning nollie 270 noseslide in the 22-year-old’s likeness. The full-rights, metaverse-ready, 3D digital art sculpture is available now from FWENCLUB and can be plugged into any digital world.
Yuto released a statement introducing the exclusive five-day NFT sale:
“Age 22 was the best year of my life so far. To celebrate, I’m teaming up with FWENCLUB to release my first ever NFT. It is a digital sculpture that captures the trick which helped me win the Olympics, and also all the special moments of this year. You can own ‘The Golden 22’ version of me, and even take me to the metaverse. As I bid farewell to this incredible year, I am so excited to memorialize all my achievements and share it with the world.
