  • Puma and Roc Nation (Jay-Z’s entertainment agency) just launched a new shoe collection called RS-XL “Evolution of the Mixtape”. The twist: each shoe comes with a blockchain-based tech called an “LGT Tag” which is embedded in the tongue of the shoe. Owners can scan it to access exclusive music content from Roc Nation artists including weekly mixtapes, access to unreleased music, and more. An NFT is also minted on the Avalanche blockchain that can be used to authenticate the shoes and other apparel.​​
