Ice Cube on BIG3’s crypto push: ‘We’ve changed the game’ with historic Dogecoin purchase
Rapper and BIG3 founder Ice Cube and MyDoge Chairman Bill Lee on what the future holds for BIG3 by offering ownership-like benefits to players and coaches.
Rapper and BIG3 basketball league founder Ice Cube has made history alongside MyDoge Chairman Bill Lee with the world’s largest commercial cryptocurrency transaction.
"We just did something great," Ice Cube told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Friday, "being able to have a league like the BIG3 to embrace NFTs and the blockchain technology that add real utilities."
"What Cube is really doing is bringing the power of Web3 to the BIG3," Lee added on "Mornings with Maria." "So with utility, it makes it so that he's turning the team owners into developers."
In the historic deal, Lee bought 25 "Fire-Tier" NFT editions of BIG3's Aliens through dogecoin, worth $600,000, according to a press release.
