The Philadelphia 76ers and dynamically growing exchange Crypto.com announced a new partnership today, with which Crypto.com becomes the team’s official jersey patch partner. This is the first NBA partnership for Crypto.com, which has more than 10 million users worldwide. Fans of the team can buy their first-ever non-fungible token (NFT) on Crypto.com NFT.
Patch officially debuts on October 20
This season, each of the four versions of the team’s uniform will feature the Crypto.com patch on the left shoulder. It will be featured on all 76ers authentic jerseys NBA retailers sell as well. The patch makes its official debut on October 20, when the 76ers will play against the New Orleans Pelicans. The basketball team will reveal the new City Edition uniform in November, in memory of an iconic time in their history. Another unique NFT series will be launched then.
