The Toronto Raptors are a Canadian professional basketball team based in Toronto. The Raptors compete in the National Basketball Association as members of the league’s Eastern Conference Atlantic Division. They have become the outstanding Canadian sports team to initiate the NFT collections.

What is an NFT Collection?

A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain. It authorizes a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. They can represent items such as audio, photos, videos and other types of digital files.

Digital art was the first use case for NFTs. This is because of the ability of blockchain technology to persuade the unique signature and ownership of NFTs.

NFTs can represent digital collectibles like physical card collections, however in a completely digital format.

They have also recommended tickets as a use case for NFTs. This gives any artist the possibility to get royalties and resales.

NFTs has also initiated many other collections including sports, music, films, memes, games and fashion.
