This morning, through their social media platforms, FMF and Bitso announced the opportunity to acquire a new official national team fan jersey ahead of the team’s participation in the 2022 World Cup. In just 20 minutes, the entire collection was sold out. The collection consisted of 100 official physical jerseys, each containing a corresponding NFT version of his jersey that fans’ avatars could wear within his Decentraland metaverse. Each physical and his NFT jersey set sold for $1,800 MXN worth in Ether.
“Our mission is to make cryptocurrencies useful in the everyday lives of Mexicans,” said Barbara Gonzalez Briseño, General Director of Bitso México.
