Introducing Jeremy Lin NFTs presented by Reel8 on Project Galaxy
Former NBA star Jeremy Lin, along with Reel8 and Project Galaxy will be dropping his first film NFTs for the “Linsanity” documentary, to support the Asian American community. Project Galaxy is proud to play a part in this initiative by distributing allowlist spots through a series of campaigns.
100% of Lin’s sale proceeds will benefit the Jeremy Lin Foundation which supports overlooked and underserved AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) and cross-racial youth programs through narrative change, community empowerment, and cross-racial solidarity.
The Linsanity NFT Drop features access to unreleased director’s cuts and behind-the-scenes footage of the Lin family documentary and gives fans of Linsanity the opportunity to unlock exclusive Metaverse content, including a high-stakes three-point shooting game, through which NFT-holders can meet Jeremy Lin within a live AMA.
“I’m no NFT expert, but when Reel8 shared their vision to create a fan community supporting AAPI filmmakers and the Jeremy Lin Foundation, I was game.” — Jeremy Lin tweeted on March 24, 2022
How do I claim my allowlist spot for the drop?
