MLB, Candy Digital Offering Commemorative NFT Tickets to Postseason Fans

Fans attending the MLB postseason games can receive commemorative NFT tickets that will update with pertinent game photos within 24 hours of the event. The NFTs are being produced by Candy Digital and will also feature game details such as matchups, the venue, and the starting time of the game.

Additionally, fans who also bought MLB ICON Leadoff Series NFTs in April will have the opportunity to find eight randomly placed World Series digital tokens starting October 21st. Each of those World Series Token NFTs can be traded in for two real life tickets to this season’s actual World Series.[1]

Air Europa Adding NFTicket Platform

Air Europa made history earlier this year by selling the first plane ticket as an NFT and now plans to launch an NFTicket platform, selling regular flight bookings as NFTs, in addition to its normal reservations process.

In Air Europa’s NFTicket plan consumers will have the option to complete a booking using the NFT path on the same screen as traditional ticketing. Passengers who choose the NFTicket gain additional options and will be able to change the name on the booking as often as they want, up until 72 hours prior to departure.  The airline will take a cut each time the name is changed just like when an NFT is transferred. That incremental revenue is a key factor in Air Europa’s pursuit of this offering.[2]

Other parts of the applications relate to “non-downloadable virtual goods” and “a collectible series of non-fungible tokens," as well as “providing virtual environments in which users can interact for recreational, leisure or entertainment purposes accessible in the virtual world.” [3]

A $175,000 house sold via an NFT.

A house in South Carolina was sold and ownership transferred through an NFT. Roofstock, a digital real estate platform, facilitated the sale of the $175,000 home last week. This sale has prompted a debate over whether the selling of real estate and property through NFTs smooths the property-buying process or complicates it. The property was listed and sold on Roofstock’s NFT marketplace which is powered by Origin protocol.  The house was sold using USDC.

The new owner stated that "Instead of waiting months for underwriting, appraisals, title searches and preparing deeds, I was able to buy a fully title-insured, rent-ready property with one click." [6]

Azuki NFTs Set Record for Selling the Most Expensive Skateboards in History

Azuki NFT has set a record this month by selling the most expensive digital and physical skateboards in history. Azuki’s “Golden Skateboard” NFTs collection is a collection of nine skateboard NFTs. The collection brought in over 2.5 million dollars. One skateboard sold for 404 thousand dollars. Each skateboard displays a unique emblem that is tied to Azuki lore. The skateboards are rare and owning one of these skateboards allows the holders to become a part of the Azuki storyline.

The Azuki Skateboard NFTs can also be redeemed for an actual real life golden skateboard. In order for the owner to claim the physical skateboard the NFT holder would have to burn their "Golden Skateboard" NFT. [7]
