LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A Las Vegas man could be over a million dollars richer all because of a video he acquired as an NFT, or Non-Fungible Token.

The now-viral video of former wide receiver Antonio Brown now belongs to Evan Savar.

The video originally captured by a fan’s cell phone was purchased by Savar, who's auctioning the NFT on viralheir.com.

Savas says he expects the bids to reach as high as $1.5 million.

Savar says he’s proud that he can say he’s owned a piece of history.

"We don't know where we are in this NFT technology, you know? You had your early adopters who are using it," said Savar, "but what this technology is going to do for the world, it's really in its infancy."

"And to own a piece of this moment and that history, I think is pretty incredible for the right person,” he added.

While most sports memorabilia is tangible, the tech world is changing the game through the increased popularity of NFTs.
