An exclusive NFT collection by MLB All-Star and New York Yankee pitcher Nestor Cortes, also known as “Nasty” Nestor, will be made available on the ReserveBlock Foundations RBX Network (reserveblock.io) protocol on Sunday, July 17th in the evening. A portion of the proceeds will go to Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital and Miami Children’s Hospital. The minting and trading of NFTs can be done with or without the need for a centralized authority thanks to RBX, the first open-source, decentralized NFT-centric blockchain.
With an ecosystem that offers a complete set of on-chain tools, RBX lessens typical frictions and burdens by creating a space where anyone and everyone can participate with transparent trustless features all through a core wallet or web wallet by either validating on the network or writing a smart contract without the slightest need to know code. On Sunday, July 17, RBX will transition from a successful public test net to the mainnet beta launch.
“In honor of my selection to my first MLB All-Star Game, I wanted to create a series of unique NFTs that allowed me to help tell my story and connect directly with fans, I had been very interested in NFTs for the past couple of years but was looking for a network that I could easily use as well as allow my fans to easily interact with me directly. When I discovered RBX through a friend and started to test it myself, I knew I finally found exactly what I needed to accomplish to create my personal NFT collection. This is a super cool moment for me.” – Nestor Cortes.
Cortes has also revealed that he will be releasing six extremely exclusive One of One digital collectable cards, each of which will have a signed piece of game-used equipment, unique photos, and some rare home-game experiences. Each NFT collectible has Nestor’s unique designs and was made in partnership with Juan Garcia, a digital artist who also worked on the Astro Kongs, Space Hoops, Cyber Souls, and Astro League collections, and Mike Fogg. Following the publication on Sunday evening, July 17th, fans can simply click on a direct link supplied by Nestor to his personal wallet auction in order to join with a “buy now” or bidding mechanism, or even to make a credit card purchase.
Additionally, Nestor announced that more information and teasers about his own auction will be released via his social media accounts in the days before of its opening on the 17th.
