He won a number of titles on three continents during his career. He had his best years at Porto, Bayern Munich, Monaco, Real Madrid, and Everton. He also played over 100 games for the Colombian national team.

Mr. Rodriguez decided to make a collection of 1,500 digital collectibles called Commemorative Edition NFT to remember the best parts of his career. By about the middle of June, you’ll be able to mint NFTs through mystery boxes and auctions on ZKSea.

The team also runs a whitelist campaign for early birds who want to claim upcoming NFTs on ZKSea in the presale round.

Rodriguez Is Excited To Join NFT

Mr. Rodriguez is excited to be the latest sports star to join the NFT:

I’m so happy to be launching my commemorative edition NFT collection with ZKSpace. The whole process of putting this together and thinking about the best parts of my career has made me very grateful for the journey I’ve been on so far, and I’m truly grateful for the chance to start celebrating my legacy in style.

The NFTs in the collection are connected to important moments in Mr. Rodriguez’s career, like when he played for Colombia at the 2014 World Cup in Uruguay and when he won the 2014/15 Liga BBVA Best Midfielder award.

ZKSea Strengthens Its Position In NFT Marketplace

ZKSea joined the trend of NFT marketplaces working with top-level athletes. This trend began when NBA Top Shot teamed up with U.S. basketball players.

As U.Today has said before, ZKSea is a first-of-its-kind NFT marketplace that uses zk-proofs technology. It makes it much cheaper and easier to make new non-fungible tokens and trade them.

Earlier, in the first quarter of 2022, ZKSea teamed up with the top Japanese luxury cosmetics brand shu uemura.
