CricFlix’s proprietary AI-backed and blockchain-based certifications will bring actual value to fans by allowing them to not only become investors and owners for the first time through NFT purchasing, but also to immortalise these exclusive digital artefacts.
“We, at CricFlix, are providing powerful transformations into the metaverse by bringing world-class cricket memorabilia with a renowned history behind it. It is an investment piece of a rare asset class for the future generations where the metaverse and the physical world come together and thrive,” said Anwar Hussein, Co-Founder of CricFlix.
