On November 20th, 2020, former NBA star Nate Robinson went viral once again. Only this time, it had nothing to do with his high-flying abilities on the basketball court.

It all started when Robinson said that he’s “sick of hearing Jake Paul call out weak opponents like a bully.” 

While Robinson himself calls himself “one of the greatest athletes on the planet”, the boxing ring may not be his thing. Thanks to internet star Jake Paul, millions of viewers witnessed Robinson get knocked out cold in just the second round. 

Now the unforgettable fight will forever be captured in the form of an NFT.

Triller offering NFT of iconic Nate Robinson knockout

The same company that promoted the fight between Paul and Robinson, Triller, is now offering a 1-of-1 collectible of the KO in the form of a non-fungible token. 

On top of the Jake Paul-Nate Robinson digital collectible, the lucky buyer will also receive a custom 1-of-1 NFT of the final 30 seconds of the upcoming April 17 boxing match between Paul and retired MMA fighter Ben Askren.

While that fight has yet to occur, interested buyers will want to keep an eye out for the digital collectibles to become available via the new Triller NFT Marketplace.

Sorry to say, if you were planning to scrounge up some couch change for the Jake Paul NFT collectibles, you better have deep pockets. The word is the asking price for the 1-of-1 collectible is $10 million.

While that amount comes in much higher than NBA Top Shot digital cards, other NFT tokens have sold for prices upward of $50 million.

Could we see the UFC version of NFT digital cards also approach astronomical prices as we’ve seen from the Jake Paul-Nate Robinson fight? I guess we’ll just have to stay tuned to find out.
