Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has made a strategic investment in Rario, a cricket-focused NFT platform. The company has already announced the launch of OG packs of Sachin Tendulkar on the platform. As a part of the deal, Sachin will also act as a brand ambassador for the company and will also release his NFTs on Rario.

Rario was founded by Ankit Wadhwa and Sunny Bhanot back in 2021. The platform also raised $120 million Series A funding round led by Dream Capital last year. Rario has made a community of cricket fans and provides them an opportunity to own NFTs of officially licensed cricketing moments and player cards.

The platform is built on Polygon Network. Users can buy, sell, or trade NFTs using credit cards, debit cards, and bank transfers. Rario has already sold over 150,000 NFTs to sports fans located in more than 75 countries.

Rario also has similar deals with several other popular cricketers including Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, Rishabh Pant, Smriti Mandhana, Aaron Finch, Faf Du Plessis, Quinton de Kock, Shakib Al Hasan, Arshdeep Singh, and Axar Patel.

The company also claims to have exclusive partnerships with tournaments such as Cricket Australia, New Zealand Cricket, Big Bash League, Women’s Big Bash League, Super Smash, Hero Caribbean Premier League, Lanka Premier League, Abu Dhabi T10 League, and Legends League Cricket.
