What is Locker Token?
Locker Token is an ecosystem for sports teams and athletes that allows them to futureproof and monetize their respective offerings through blockchain, while connecting fans and the athletes themselves via a unique asset class. Locker is known by its ticker – $LKT – and was recently listed on CoinMarketCap after a successful contract migration.
Despite being a relatively new project, the ecosystem features a number of the worlds best Ice Hockey teams and players including; Rögle BK, Manchester Storm, and HC Bolzano. More teams across both Ice Hockey and other sports are in the process of being onboarded, with the end goal being to onboard each respective team’s fan base to Locker as engaged fans and buyers.
From a token perspective, the Ethereum price decline of late has dragged the price of $LKT with it due to the closely-connected nature of Locker as an ERC20 token. However, the team has continued to build and create new partnerships despite the market-wide downturn.
500 lucky fans will receive a free mint upon scanning a QR code.
