Interested parties were able to purchase the NFTs directly from eBay using a PayPal account or credit card starting at just $10 USD. The purchase came with a code to redeem on the OneOf NFT platform, where holders can buy, sell, or gift the digital collectible.
The OneOf platform is known for its commitment to a sustainable blockchain future through the use of energy-efficient chains like Polygon, a layer-two Ethereum scaling solution, that the eBay collection was built on. OneOf prides itself on the zero gas fee cost users experience when purchasing NFTs on its platform. It aims to bring the next 100 million non-crypto-native fans into Web3 by removing technical friction often associated with getting started in the space. The platform is also known for its diverse representation, with over 80% of collections featured coming from minority or female creators.
At the time of writing the animated 3D NFTs in the Wayne Gretzky eBay collection have sold out, however, there are still several stills available starting at just $10 USD.
Elsewhere in Web3, Ledger collaborates with VeeFriends and The Hundreds.
