Each of the Legendary Series 1-of-1 digital collectibles will be sold by auction. The highest bidder will also get a personalized experience with the athlete and a bonus BYHC avatar NFT in the athlete’s likeness. Fans may purchase NFTs in the Founders’ Series (1-of-200) with credit/debit card or cryptocurrency. The first 25 NFTs sold (per player) will come with a physical “Platinum Card.” This unique collectible, to be delivered to the original owner by OpenLocker, will be a metal wallet-sized card hand-signed by the athlete with the digital art and QR code which directs to the NFT.
All NFT owners will receive a randomly generated and authenticated BYHC avatar with a unique combination of traits. Once claimed by a fan, the BYHC avatar token functions as a digital key for club membership and may be used as a social media profile pic (PFP). The BYHC NFTs will grant access to an exclusive Discord channel and other platforms to dialogue with current athletes, celebrity alumni and sports analysts. BYHC members will also receive invitations to VIP events, rewards and early access to future drops with additional athletes from other teams at the University of Connecticut. A complete roadmap is posted on the BYHC website: boneyardhuskyzclub.com and in the OpenLocker Discord channel.
