Domen Prevc, a wunderkind ski jumper from Slovenia is the latest addition to NFT hype around the world. With his approach and contribution to the NFTs, crypto and blockchain in general, he is changing the game. Before we talk about NFT Porsche let’s take a look at his career.
Early days & career development
But first, let’s take a look at his background. Domen Prevc was born 4 June 1999 and he is the younger brother of world cup ski jumpers Cene Prevc and Peter Prevc. From his young age, he fell in love with sports and nature. He was quickly discovered as one of the most promising ski jumpers in the world. He competed in the 2015 European Youth Olympic Winter Festival. Domen made an individual World Cup debut on 22 November 2015 in Klingenthal with eighth place. He needed only four World Cup starts to reach his first podium on 19 December 2015 in Engelberg where he took second place. At that event, Domen and Peter Prevc shared a podium as the first brothers in the World Cup history. Wonderkid won his first World Cup individual event on 25 November 2016 at the 2016–17 season-opening in Kuusamo/Ruka, and therefore wore a yellow bib as the World Cup overall leader for the first time in his career. Soon after that, he won another three December World Cup individual events in Klingenthal, Lillehammer and Engelberg. It was a fantastic time for him.
Sports success story
On 28 January 2017 in Willingen, three brothers represented a national team for the first time in the World Cup team event history, as he jumped with his brothers Cene and Peter. Despite his youth, he competed for the first time in his career at the ski flying event in Oberstdorf on 3 February 2017. On 19 March 2017 in Vikersund, he improved his personal best jump to 243.5 metres. So in ski jumping, the sky is a limit for him.
It’s more than meets the eye. A swift businessman.
But what about his business endeavours? Prevc’s family are the owners of a few furniture stores in Slovenia so he was into the business from a young age. He stood out from his peers also in that area in which he always tried to get the most knowledge out. He is a »crypto OG« as they say »in the space«, very familiar with the technology behind it. When the possibility of NFTs became a reality, he took the chance with both hands. He will be participating in his own NFT digital collection on nftdeals.io, but he also took a step forward in combining the physical and digital world.
NFT Porsche? Real Porsche connected to the token.
He sees a lot of opportunities in tokenization of his image rights since there is a lack of marketing done by agencies and federations and he wants to be the one who will break the ice and help himself and others on that path. As he mentioned in the latest interview, he will be giving away his own rare collectible car, Porsche 911 (the model year 1978) connected to NFT, so the people who are buying and investing in NFTs will have a chance to get, drive and enjoy a physical item from a star athlete which never happened in history. He wants to make a statement and move the sports vehicle into a new era of development.
So what can we say at the end? We can say Domen is definitely someone who is a visionary and who is changing a game. For better!
