Welcome to the Playerverse

Player Edition is a tech platform for athletes to launch fan communities, built on NFT technology with web3 values.

About Player Edition

Player Edition occupies an uninhabited space; it sits where athletes, people who love sports, industry disruptors in Web3 and some of the biggest forces in crypto overlap. Player Edition serves to highlight players as creators and artists themselves, all anchored by high-quality creative concepts and enduring communities. We are founded by professional athletes and have partnered with dozens of creators to launch Player Edition, the premiere athlete NFT launch platform.

Our Team

As a minority led team at Player Edition (something few and far between in Web3), we have an opportunity to empower a diverse and inclusive community into the Playerverse.

The Playerverse


PlayerDAO is the inner circle of the Player Edition community, where sports meets Web3. We are housed in a private Telegram group that includes current and former NBA players, NFT collectors and patrons, and marquee artists. Our mission is to become the premiere sports DAO by fostering genuine connections between athletes and their communities.

Player Edition Collaborations

We are launching NFTs projects that are created and designed by professional athletes, leading artists, and Web3 innovators. Player Edition is not building a factory of athlete trading cards, signatures, and one-off drops.

We respect everyone’s approach, but we see value from a different vantage point—one that emphasizes participation, community, and culture. Player Edition serves to highlight players as creators and artists themselves, all anchored by high- quality creative concepts and enduring communities.
