Dak Prescott x Ethernity

Art by Impossible Brief & Visual Lab

Drops September 9, 2021 @ 7pm ET

Duration: 96 Hours

Description:

The Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is on a mission. The QB known as “D4K” is making a big comeback following a series of setbacks, including a devastating ankle injury that ended his season last year. Now, he and the Cowboys are mounting a charge, while being featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” and rallying to make a run at the Playoffs. Meanwhile, Dak is soaring to new heights — on the cover of Sports Illustrated, and signing to the exclusive Jumpman brand — the only Quarterback to carry the name.

In a similar vein, he’s partnered with Ethernity to bring you this debut NFT collection by leading artists Impossible Brief and Visual Lab. At the peak of the collection is Ethernity’s first “Interactive NFT” with 3 settings set to change during the 2021 football season according to gameplay. Each week, the blockchain-based smart contract will trigger a change between digital trading cards according to Dak’s football QBR rating. This is a first for the Ethernity team, and the first for its community to experience real-time interactivity across its line of NFTs.

Included in the drop is a series of “unlockables” — physical goods and experiences that Ethernity is known to feature across all of its drops — bridging the physical and digital worlds blockchain continues to unlock. This includes a signed Dak Prescott jersey, a signed football, signed cleats, and 2 tickets to a Dallas Cowboys home game this season. All “unlockable” winning items will be determined exclusively using Chainlink’s VRF randomizer in raffle form on blockchain with Ethernity contacting the winner post-drop and delivering the assets using our custom packaging and delivery service.

Description:

This headline-making NFT is a first in Ethernity’s collection and is only available to a limited number of buyers.

A technological feat where Ethernity’s developers have coded special blockchain-based attributes that will make this NFT like no other. This first of its kind NFT on Ethernity puts Dak in near bionic form as he rebuilds from injury and makes his big comeback. It’s future looking setting encapsulates the forward motion mindset of a leader bent on getting the Cowboys, America’s team ahead, no matter the stakes.

Each week the NFT will change styles according to gamer performance: standard performance of a QBR rating of 60–75 sees Dak in futuristic blue and silver, in throwing motion, ready to lead his team to victory. A red hot performance with a QBR rating of 75+ sees Dak in fiery red being hoisted up by his teammates. A less than stellar performance with a QBR of 50–60 — happenstance in the ups and down of football — sees Dak set in a storm, with lightning striking, looking back, but ready for the next big play.

Artist Statement:

With Dak Prescott’s comeback there’s a lot of emotional response from his fans, his club and himself. Seeing him grow stronger from his downfalls and reunite with his team has a feeling that’s difficult to describe, fortunately enough, that’s where modern technology comes in.

Using the latest NFT technology the visuals adapt to Prescott’s performance. While you’re watching a Dallas Cowboys game; card designs change from an icy, tense, dark and mysterious design with Dak’s figure standing, yearning for better days to a scene where’s Prescott’s in the middle of an important ball pass or even to a victorious, fiery and monumental cheer together with his teammates.

Paired with the adapting visuals a carefully orchestrated cinematic sound roars in the background.
