According to the CEO John Donahoe, buying sneakers is another step accelerating Nike’s digital transformation, writes Reuters.

In the metaverse, users can buy virtual land and, for example, yachts for hundreds of thousands of dollars, clothing for avatars, and more – in the form of a crypto asset, or NFT.

NFT is a non-fungible token or unique digital certificate, giving exclusive rights to a painting, artifact, real estate and more in the virtual world.

RTFKT company, the creator of virtual sneakers, launched in 2020 and has been producing collectibles and memes for the metaverse ever since.
