From the announcement, it is certain that the NFT that will be released by NYL is in the form of nail art accompanied by the serial number on the lid of the nail art.

In total, 400 NFT NYL will be released on May 7, 2022, precisely at the opening of the 2022 WNBA season where the opening match will feature a battle between the Liberty against the Connecticut Sun.

Keia Clarke, as CEO of Liberty, said that he wanted to make NYL the first WNBA team to carry blockchain technology in the NFT sector. He also praised NFT as a unique and exclusive future collection and can be used as a bridge so that the relationship with his fans can be closer.

“While we wanted to be a team with cutting-edge technology and a fan experience, launching the league’s first NFT was a natural progression of our business. The NFT is a unique future collection, and this exclusive collection celebrates the intersection of nail art culture and sport through the lens of New York Liberty.” Clarke said, quoted from ESPN.
