More about the 6 rings collection via Michael Jordan's HEIR

HEIR's first NFT collection was launched by on March 3, 2022, to help bring "founding" users onto the platform. The launch was named "6 Rings," inspired by Michael Jordan's six NBA championship victories with the Chicago Bulls in 1990s.

Each holder of the 6 Rings NFT will be designated as a "founding fan" on the platform. The "founding fans" will be given exclusive access to content, limited access to communities, and "huddles." Huddles is an upcoming platform which will be the providing a bridge between fans and athletes within the "huddles."

The brand was originally planning to sell 10010 NFTs, but reduced the number of NFTs to 5,005, half of the original. The action was taken by the label because of slower-than-expected sales, however, the NFTs were soon sold out after the reduction of stock.

The "6 Rings" NFT were available in five colors, black, red, white, gold, and platinum with different background hues, each containing a graphic of the bull. Each of these NFTs is priced at a 2.3 SOL which is approximately $187.56 USD. The price of 2.3 SOL is a subtle homage to Michael Jordan's jersey number 23. The NFT collection can be availed on the official websites of MagicEden and HEIR.

HEIR also recently filed a trademark application for the NFT project, 6 Rings, as per Gerben Law's employee Josh Gerben.

This filing was shared on Twitter via @joshgerban and it claims that the company will further offer virtual clothing, headwear, footwear, toys, bags, art and collectibles. The company will also include lifestyle and athletic wear in addition to the aforementioned NFTs.
