Charged Particles & SportsIcon Partner To Launch Gigi Buffon Nested NFT

Creating superpowered NFTs with DeFi yield-bearing utility is simple with Charged Particles.This protocol allows artists, creators and developers to mint totally unique non-fungible tokens, and charge them with DeFi functionality; providing not only speculative value, but also accrued interest value.

June 22, 2021, Toronto, Canada Charged Particles is excited to announce a brand new  collaborative Nested NFT with SportsIcon, The Guild NFT, and the legendary Italian goalkeeper Gigi Buffon!

Earlier this year, Charged Particles collaborated with The Guild NFT on “Pandora’s Box”; the first-of-its-kind Nested NFT collaboration which is the highest sale to date on the Charged Particles marketplace. The piece is a Nested NFT loaded with interest-bearing aDAI, interest-bearing aWETH, CHARGE social tokens, and 14 unique NFTs from 14 artists all locked inside a single NFT. All enabled through the technology of the Charged Particles protocol. Pandora’s Box was rapidly bought by a collector for $115,000 USD, demonstrating the allure of this cutting edge technology.

This new collaboration with The Guild NFT will see them team up with SportsIcon to bring celebrated soccer player Gigi Buffon to the NFT space.


With Charged Particles, any NFT can be transformed into a basket able to contain other ERC-20 tokens, and even other non-fungible tokens. This functionality adds true, scalable utility to the NFT ecosystem by allowing creators to load their NFTs with an interest-bearing token (e.g. aDAI) which accrues interest over time; giving the token a “Charge”. The Principal amount can be time-locked inside the NFT, and through an integration with Aave’s aTokens, programmable yield from these DeFi yield-generating assets is simple to achieve.

Charged Particles allows NFTs to become more than merely unique collectibles. By applying its innovative capabilities to load NFTs with yield-bearing tokens, NFTs or even other tokens, the worlds of DeFi (Decentralized Finance), trading, gaming and governance will begin to see NFTs as a cornerstone of many traditionally inefficient processes. 

Bringing Gigi to the NFT marketplace

This exciting opportunity is made possible through SportsIcon, who create iconic NFTs centred around the careers of the worlds greatest athletes. Their relationships with key players, alongside the respect generated through their exciting NFT collections made them an easy choice when looking for a sports collaboration.

This July, Charged Particles will be releasing a Gigi Buffon Nested NFT, which features 5 NFTs nested inside a single NFT. Each NFT will focus on the most incredible moments of Gigi Buffon’s illustrious career.
