By purchasing Smith’s coin fans will have access to multiple different experiences involving the Heisman Trophy winner. Overall Smith is looking to get closer to his fans which is something that is important to him.
“Just giving the fans the ability to buy my coin to unlock different experiences with me whether it’s playing video games, facetime, dinner, watch party, things like that,” Smith said in an interview with Snapback Sports. “It’s something different that not many people are doing. So just me being different from everybody else is going my own separate way.”
Smith is poised to gain many more fans Thursday night when his name is called during the NFL Draft. He is valued as one of the top receivers in the entire draft and is essentially a lock to be a first-round selection.
ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay recently released his final mock draft where he had Smith heading to the Philadelphia Eagles at the No. 7 pick.
