The NFL is attaching NFTs to game tickets

The NFL has announced it is paring tickets with select games with “Virtual Commemorative Tickets” sent as NFTs to eligible Ticketmaster wallets.

The league released its first batch of commemorative NFTs through Ticketmaster and Polygon on Thursday, including 125 different collectibles for each of the 32 NFL teams.

The next virtual commemorative ticket game is scheduled for Thanksgiving during the Bears / Lions matchup. NFL club business development senior vice president Bobby Gallo says, “Leveraging the emerging world of NFTs is a new and exciting way for us to create additional value and to further engage with fans who attend select games by providing a virtual commemorative ticket. There is no better time than the upcoming holiday season to kick off this fun and engaging fan experience, starting with the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day matchup.”

The NFL partnered with Dapper Labs back in September, with plans to create its own NFT collectible marketplace on the Flow blockchain, similar to NBA’s Top Shot collection. At some point during this season, the marketplace will sell digital video collectibles.


Netflix’s Arcane renewed for season 2

Riot Games’ League of Legends animated series Arcane has been renewed for Season 2.

Over the weekend, during the two-day Arcane Undercity Nights event, Riot Games and Netflix revealed Arcane is coming back for a second season.

Arcane made its debut earlier this month as the first-ever show to have a debut on Twitch. The show focuses on the utopian region of League of Legends realms Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun.

The final Arcane act debuted on Saturday, and it’s safe to say the show was a huge success. After its debut on Netflix, Arcane quickly soared to the number two spot on the service’s official weekly chart, with a current total of 50,290,000 hours viewed.

“We’re beyond happy about the positive response to Arcane‘s first season and are working hard with the creative wizards at Riot and Fortiche to deliver our second installment,” said co-creators Christian Linke and Alex Yee.

It’s too early to say when the second season will get released, but it likely won't be any time soon.

Fords plans to produce 600,000 EV vehicles by 2023

Ford has announced its plans to become the number 2 maker of electric vehicles in the US within the next 24 months.

Ford’s current EV lineup has been highly successful, Company CEO Jim Farley said, and the demand is a lot higher than the company expected. Since the F-150 Lightning was revealed, the first electric version of its iconic truck, it has been in high demand with 100,000 reservations within the first three weeks and now over 160,000.

According to Farley, Ford is on track to become the second-biggest EV maker in the U.S. by the end of 2023, with Tesla in the lead. Further down the road, the company aims to take Tesla’s #1 spot and become the biggest EV manufacturer in the world.

"We aim to become the 2nd biggest EV producer within the next couple years. Then as the huge investments we're making in EV and battery manufacturing come onstream and we rapidly expand our EV lineup, our ambition is for Ford
to become the biggest EV maker in the world," Farley said.
