Phil Knight's VC creating NFTs celebrating Oregon athletes around Title IX anniversary

In conjunction with Title IX's 50th anniversary, Phil Knight’s sport venture company, Division Street, is launching NFTs that will celebrate and benefit female student-athletes from the Univ. of Oregon, notes SportTechie's Tom Friend.

Labeled as "Visions of Flight," the NFTs were designed by artist Lili Tae in concert with 12 Oregon women athletes, including basketball player Sedona Prince, who has been outspoken about athletic equality.

Division Street -- through its "Ducks of a Feather" platform -- has placed a priority on Web3 and NFTs while trying to create opportunities for Oregon athletes. The concept of the "Visions of Flight" series is to ensure that female athletes at the school can artistically express their voices. The collection goes on sale on June 30, and 75% of the revenue will be equally shared by the participating athletes.
