One of the first NFT auctions from an entity in Alabama
According to Protective Stadium, this is one of the first-ever NFT auctions from an entity in Alabama. Welcome to the future.
NFTs are “unique digital assets that are secured and contained on the blockchain. The blockchain verifies ownership, provenance and transaction history,” as defined by Protective Stadium. They compare it to a unique digital trading card. In this auction, you can bid on The Protective Stadium Gates Open NFT, a digital piece of art depicting Protective Stadium.
