eBay’s NFT collection will involve digital collectibles of popular athletes such as Wayne Gretzky, a Canadian ice hockey player. Each athlete will have four tiers of NFTs — green, gold, platinum, and diamond — with the green tier including the cheapest NFTs starting at $10.

The firm intends to release more NFT collections of high-profile athletes throughout 2022. 

While eBay officially supported NFTs since May of 2021, this new NFT launch appears to be the first time the company itself is releasing NFTs.

OneOf is built on the Tezos blockchain, which uses a proof-of-stake consensus system.
