Indycar: Juncos Hollinger Racing Introduces New Partnership With GPNFTS Powered By Velas
The Juncos Hollinger Racing (JHR) team will partner with GPNFTS powered by Velas this season: a newly-launched NFT ecosystem for the motorsports world that operates across all the premier series on the planet, including Formula 1, GT racing, and the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.
Powered by Velas – a Swiss company that specializes in the blockchain and NFT sector, which is renowned for the creation and integration of cutting-edge digital products – GPNTS presents an entirely new concept in motorsport collectables, opening up the door to the metaverse. These unique NFTs will take fans under the skin of motorsport in a way that they have never experienced before, with the opportunity to see their NFTs in virtual reality and utilize them in the metaverse.
The new partnership enables fans of JHR to own digital versions of the team’s NTT INDYCAR SERIES cars and drivers, which they will be able to see come to life using VR headsets. Owners of these state-of-the-art NFTs will also join an exclusive fan community providing behind-the-scenes highlights from the team throughout the 2022 championship season.
JHR NFTs will unlock the door into the metaverse: a digital landscape that will shape the future not only of competition, but of everyday life. An NFT is cryptocurrency-based, which enables owners to possess a unique asset that can be traded for the first time on an entirely open marketplace, as well as buy into digital assets that will eventually transform the world of gaming and collecting.
Once purchased, fans can use and enjoy these NFTs anywhere they have a digital presence. No expertise or interest in cryptocurrency is necessary, with owners able to post their NFTs on their social channels and display them digitally wherever they like.
The GPNFTS powered by Velas logos will be seen on the rear wings of the JHR cars, as well as on the driver overalls and all team assets throughout the 2022 season.
