Clark’s collection gives basketball fans and crypto enthusiasts a chance to own the first-ever augmented reality NFTs minted by a Division 1 NCAA athlete. Not only is AR NFTs a long-anticipated technological milestone, but with the recent passage of the Name, Image, and Likeness Policy, collegiate athletes are finally able to benefit from years of hard work and dedication to their sport.

The AR NFTs will be powered by augmented reality technology firm Geenee Inc., in partnership with NFT exchange Mintable. The collaboration with Jaylen marks the launch of a new offering from the two companies: Geenee’s no-code drag & drop WebAR Builder makes it possible for anyone to publish AR to the web in a matter of minutes, and as of today, Geenee users can start monetizing their AR creations by minting them as NFTs for sale on the Mintable marketplace.

“Creative expression is being democratized by web-based augmented reality and NFTs, and is in line with the democratization of athletes being paid for their likeness and monetization when before they couldn’t,” says Geenee CEO, Cory Grenier.

“The emergence of NFTs has created another avenue for athletes to further engage their community and grow their brand. Industry frontrunners like Jaylen taking advantage of web-based AR tools and our NFT marketplace to create novel ways to engage their community is a great example of early adoption in this segment,” says Zach Burks, Founder & CEO of Mintable. Burks adds: “With the rise of popularity of NFTs among college athletes, Mintable has also launched a College Athlete NFT initiative. More info: https://mintable.app/college.”

“With Jaylen’s growing influence in Crypto as well as the Name, Image, and Likeness space in College Sports, we saw this as another opportunity to allow him to make a name for himself off the court. He is primed to make a splash in college basketball this season at UCLA. However, minting his cryptocurrency $JROCK and now following up with a first-of-its-kind Augmented Reality NFT collection with Geenee and Mintable, will allow Jaylen’s brand to be recognized and remembered in the history books off the court,” adds Clark’s manager, Andre Chevalier II.

Jaylen Clark’s AR NFT collection will drop for sale on Mintable starting at 5 pm PST, September 17, 2021. Pricing will start at .05 ETH ($180) with some of the NFTs available for immediate purchase. The most exclusive piece of the drop will be put up for auction with a reserve price of 1 ETH and features a $JROCK-branded holographic basketball in AR. The NFT comes with two tickets to a UCLA basketball game, 1,000 $JROCK coins, and an exclusive UCLA shoe.

The purchaser of each piece in the collection will have ownership rights of the 3D digital asset, along with the capability to display and interact with it in augmented reality. Following the drop, purchasers can reach out directly to @geenee on mintable to arrange for delivery of the accompanying physical goods.


Jaylen is a multifaceted athlete, creator, and innovator. The UCLA sophomore basketball star made history by becoming the first college athlete to launch a cryptocurrency, $JROCK. He is represented by ACIB Management Group, a company dedicated to helping young athletes monetize their NIL to support themselves and their families.
