This is a guest post from the Meta Panda Club team.
Initiated by world renowned NBA champion Metta World Peace and many other NBA players, Meta Panda Club is aimed at building the world’s largest basketball community, uniting pro players, basketball teams, leagues, and fans. Starting with our Genesis drop of 10,000 Meta Panda NFTs, we strive to bring the most loved players to fans closer than ever in the Web3 era. To many fans, MPC may be their first attempt into web3 and NFT era, and we know that having tangible utilities would encourage them, instead of a mere cool JPEG profile picture.
Just like basketball games, MPC also has strong root in the physical world, all our future NFT drops will be combined with physical presence. We are here for the long haul. Here is a breakdown of how we will keep building MPC for the future:
Out of the revenue from NFT sales --- 50% will be directly invested into in-real-life (IRL) basketball games, events with legendary NBA players and uniting players to the club; 40% will be invested in building the tech and merchandises bridging metaverse to physical world; 10% will be used to support the team behind the scenes.
And this is just the beginning.
Future drops of NFTs including opportunities to own a piece of most iconic basketball moments, to invest in your favorite team, to sponsor future NBA stars, or even to own a piece of the largest basketball league in the world.
We can't wait to build a community for basketball fans, so learn a little bit more about Meta Panda Club as we prepare for our genesis drop beginning with a pre-sale on March 24.
Basketball is ubiquitous, from the NBA, to your local basketball courts, to the metaverse, we share the same passion for the sport.
Here in Web3 we are building a new basketball community.
And playing basketball here is different.
Breaking down boundaries.
Forging strong bonds.
Participating in the games, in metaverse or physical world.
Investing directly to support future NBA stars or simply the best player in your neighborhood.
Even owning a piece of the largest basketball league in the world.
We are just getting started
Here’s to the ones with the passion to hop onboard Meta Panda Club (MPC). A club that is initiated by renowned NBA player Metta World Peace among others created, and owned by all basketball enthusiasts.
Our vision: Create the world’s largest decentralized basketball community for the metaverse and physical world.
Packed with utilities: Not your average JPEG NFT projects. We believe in having tangible utilities is the key to unite basketball passionate globally: be it physical merchandise, membership access to special venues, VIP tickets to games, metaverse integration, or offline meetups with your favorite players. Art will still be an integral part of the club, but not the main utility.
Creating values for all: players, fans, teams, and leagues. It’s one thing to participate in one game, it’s another to own a piece of the game, a team, the entire league and even the NBA. We are here for the long haul.
Basketball IRL Events
Members of the MPC can expect exclusive games featuring some of the best players on the planet. Want to train your skills in person with NBA players as your coach? Want to compete with your legends? Or simply want to meet and greet with your favorite players? MPC will make it happen for you.
Streetwear and basketball gears
Backed by full-fledged manufacturing capabilities, MPC members can expect exclusive drops featuring community designed streetwear and top-notch basketball gear in combination with tradable NFT tokens.
Physical and digital collectibles, signed apparel (and NFTs), figurines, titanium membership cards. Just to name a few things.
There’s no better way to experience basketball than an immersive and interactive way, either in person or virtually. Leveraging existing metaverse facilities, our goal is to make basketball experiences without boundaries. Decentraland and Sandbox are a few platforms that we are considering.
Become part of the MPC community and participate in our giveaways to win a Meta Panda.
