Miami, FL, May 11, 2023, Chainwire
Friends of George (FOG) NIL and Coach Chris Caputo collaborate to release an experiential NFT drop to benefit the GW Basketball Team and its student-athletes on the ReserveBlock RBX Network commemorating Coach Caputo's 2023 inaugural season and the team's appearance in the Atlantic Ten Tournament at the Barclay's Center in Caputo's hometown of Brooklyn, N.Y. The "Raise High" exclusive drop consists of six exclusive one-of-one NFTs, each as a multi-asset token minted on the RBX network containing one-of-a-kind digital and physical assets, each with unique experiences to be redeemed by the holder directly with Coach Caputo himself while interacting IRL with GW Basketball players. The exclusive commemorative FOG drop will be a first for any NIL where fans, students, and FOG sponsors/supporters will directly access the scarce tokens without any third party and enable real on-chain utility for collecting, interacting, and redemption.
Furthermore, the "Raise High" commemorative experiential collectibles can be traded peer-to-peer easily through the RBX Web Wallet. They may potentially unlock future benefits for holders associated with FOG NIL events. Coach Caputo will donate all proceeds to benefit the program and its student-athletes.
“While bringing a title home to GW is always our primary goal, it starts by solidifying our connectivity with the community for the benefit of our student athletes, the university and all GW fans. I believe this is a unique way to bring our players and fans together in a more engaging way and utilizing blockchain technology gives us a unique opportunity to do just that.” Said Coach Caputo “We welcome this type of engagement for our student athletes! As NIL empowers them, we want to encourage forward thinking use that goes well beyond just earning potential. I believe this will help give fans a front row seat to our journey for a title, while at the same time democratizing the landscape for all our student athletes and continue to raise the standard of excellence our program stands for.” Stated Coach Caputo
The exclusive "Raise High" commemorative series will drop promptly on Coach Caputo's RBX Web Wallet Auction on Friday, May 12, at 1:00 PM ET. The auction will end at 1:00 PM ET on Monday, May 15.

ReserveBlock RBX (ReserveBlock.IO) is an open-source p2p layer 1 blockchain built in C# that is fully autonomous, decentralized, and governed by validators through on-chain voting. RBX was developed with a finite purpose, to democratize mining without the burdens and frictions of Proof of Work (PoW) or Proof of Stake (PoS), but rather a liquid Proof of Assurance (PoA) consensus while earning randomized block rewards in a carbon neutral environment such as a laptop machine with at-will participation. The network is gasless with no lockups or holding periods and gives zero weight to a user's balance. The RBX network is a complete self-management ecosystem that provides users with on-chain tools and features to tokenize any digital or physical asset with native minting through self-executing NFT smart contracts (SENs). RBX SENs can be deployed natively with peer-to-peer transferring of the underlying media and files associated with any NFT and through a non-custodial core wallet without any third-party application.
