What is an NFT?

An NFT (or Non-Fungible Tokens) is a digital asset that uses blockchain technology to authenticate that its owner is the only person - or one of a limited number of persons - authorized to access a genuine Washington Wizards artwork in digital form. These Wizards NFTs are being offered in limited editions or as one-of-a-kind, and all are collectible by design. Once these Wizards NFTs are issued, no other NFTs authenticating this artwork will ever be created by the Wizards.

What makes NFTs so special?

Not only do these NFTs allow you to build a digital collection of the things you are passionate about, but some may also unlock special rewards. Certain NFTs may give you exclusive access, prizes, and experiences that you can't get anywhere else.

When can I get an NFT?

We will be releasing our NFTs in July. They will be available only through OpenSea which is a marketplace for buying, selling, and trading NFTs. We encourage fans who are interested to create an OpenSea account before the NFTs are released.
