ONE37pm: Congratulations on being a part of this next Autograph Campaign! How was it working with the Autograph team?
Ionescu: I’m thrilled to be launching my first NFT collection with Autograph and joining so many amazing athletes and artists who are in this space. It’s fun to collaborate, be creative, and think of new avenues to extend the power of digital collectibles. For this drop, we came up with a concept tapping into my heritage, passions, and journey and I can’t wait to see how users vote on an outfit I’ll wear to an upcoming event.
ONE37pm: NFTs have become such a huge part of the sports landscape. How can young athletes benefit from taking part?
Ionescu: I want to make sure the next generation knows that there's a place for them in Web3, and Autograph is helping to pave the way for younger athletes and particularly, female athletes. "The Future is…" collection with Autograph does just that. We are a new generation – and this allows us to spotlight our potential on and off the court and field. I’m joined by a group of young talented sports stars who are paving the way for the future including Devin Booker, Coco Gauff, Collin Morikawa, and Justin Herbert.
