Creators making millions with ‘non-fungible tokens’
NonFungible.com founder Dan Kelly and Ledger chief experience officer Ian Rogers explain the technology behind the new asset class of ‘non-fungible tokens.’
Los Angeles Rams safety Taylor Rapp is one of a handful of Asian Americans playing in the NFL and he is looking to help his community, which has seen an increase of brutal attacks across the country.
Rapp, 23, said in a recent interview with FOX Business he is launching his own non-fungible token (NFT) to help fight anti-Asian hate. He will be the latest NFL player to have his own NFT, following Patrick Mahomes and Rob Gronkowski.
“I really got into the NFT collection because everyone around the country has seen all of the horrific hate crimes against the Asian community and even in the past year since COVID-19 and me being Asian American and of Chinese descent that community means a lot to me,” Rapp told FOX Business.

“I’ve seen all of these hate crimes and the heartbreaking news of all the elderly women, grandpas, getting attacked and all the helpless and vulnerable victims are the targets. We’ve seen a lot of great funds to help out the AAPI community around the country. So I decided, I was like you know what, why don’t I just launch my own NFT collection and then I’ll donate a portion of the sales directly to the AAPI community through different funds and I think I’m going to donate the majority of my donation to the AAPI community fund and I thought it was just an amazing way to just raise money to help out my community and something so dear to my heart.”
