Tyga, Ne-Yo Join Crypto Champions NFT Entrepreneurship Community

The online community and NFT collection added two big names as it continues to expand its offerings.

Crypto Champions, an online entrepreneurship community and a collection of 8,888 unique NFTs, added music stars Tyga and Ne-Yo as participants in an intriguing web3 initiative that launches with a presale Saturday.

The most active members of the community on Discord will get a share of $1 million in prizes, including $8,888 in cash, a Rolex, a sports car, seed capital to start a business and a trip to the Maldives on a private jet. The funds will be transparently trackable via a public wallet on Etherscan.

But the most interesting aspect of Crypto Champions is what it’s calling the access to priceless knowledge. That includes weekly Zoom calls and premium online courses from entrepreneurs and investors on crypto, NFTs, e-commerce, real estate, startups, crypto gaming and the metaverse. There will also be physical events like private parties and meetups in cities like New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Paris and Dubai, according to the company website.

Users who want a Crypto Champion have to download the Metamask Chrome extension, which will enable them to add ETH through Wyre or a crypto exchange like Coinbase. Users can then mint a 3D human model with 136 distinct traits like expressions, uniforms and weapons, Champions will be divided into the Privileged and Rebels factions to fight in what’s calling the upcoming metawar, where users will duel for power and control as they look to improve their rank in their respective factions from soldier to major.

As more big names join this community, it’ll likely be an NFT player to watch out for to begin 2022.
