A TrueUp Student Innovation Challenge
NFTee Me Up!
Join TrueUp's latest virtual innovation challenge where college students get to make, mint, and market an NFT for a real, hands-on learning experience.
This is a virtual challenge FREE to qualified college students and a blockchain-learning experience, so beginners are welcome!
THE NFT MISSION
Unlock the Block with NFT Use Cases
A new NFT marketplace is launching and you have received a special invitation to be one of the first people to establish your token on this NFT marketplace.
What will you tokenize!?
A broad range of buyers (panel of virtual judges) will be given ten million [pretend] dollars to spend at the NFT marketplace where the NFT you create will be listed. Your goal is to get as much of the ten million [pretend] dollars as you can.
How popular will your NFT be?
Choose any asset or utility that your NFT provides to make it attractive to the buyers and build a value model around it. Then convince buyers to spend their allowance on your token. The team whose NFT sells the most initial value will win the challenge.
It's blockchain education through an innovation challenge
This is a blockchain-learning experience and TrueUp will give you educational content, resources, and games throughout this challenge to learn about elements of blockchain technology and transaction flow. Beginners are welcome.
