Top Bidder Rewards
The platinum tier’s top bidder will receive several prizes such as,

The Gold Tier
The Gold tier will also be dropping just in time for SummerSlam and will include 500 limited editions NFTs, and a merchandise box that Cena has specially curated. WWE Senior Vice President of Revenue and Strategy Development, Scott Zanghellini, commented,

This year’s SummerSlam will take place at the Allegiant Stadium on the 21st of Saturday 2021, Live from Las Vegas. This will also be the first time that a WWE event has been held at an NFL stadium.

What Are NFTs?
NFTs or Non-Fungible tokens are tokens that are unique and cannot be replaced or exchanged by another token or asset. non-fungible tokens differ from fungible assets such as bitcoin because you can trade one bitcoin for another. AN example of an NFT would be concert tickets, a rare trading card, or a unique digital art collection.
