In partnership with FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, Smart Communications, Inc. is treating its subscribers with ways to join in on the fun and own a piece of sports history. The leading telecommunications provider is dropping exclusive digital collectibles at the tournament venues.
Shinys, the company’s own non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will be up for grabs exclusively for Smart subscribers attending the FIBA events in the Philippines. Attendees will be able to join the raffle for an NFT of JIP, FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023’s official mascot.
