Madeium Announces Drop of Exclusive Jagger Eaton NFT Collection
Innovative Peer-to-Peer Design Network Madeium Drops Iconic Designs Inspired By 2021 Tokyo Games Skateboard Medalist
Portland, OR, November 18, 2021 – Madeium, the groundbreaking new peer-to-peer design platform providing the world’s best creatives with innovative ways to monetize their work, control their intellectual property (IP), effectively collaborate and participate in direct profit-sharing has announced the exclusive NFT drop of art inspired by 20 year old skateboarding phenom and Olympic medalist Jagger Eaton.
Madeium has teamed him up with some of the world’s most influential creatives to produce an NFT collaboration series of 6 unique sets like no other. And it all begins with the Mullet:
At the Tokyo Games last summer, because all athletes were required to wear masks due to Covid-19 protocols, Jagger went on Instagram Live and told his over 600,000 followers to “look out for the mullet” to find him on TV during opening ceremonies. His fans started asking “what's up with the mullet” and Jagger responded with the quote:
“There’s nothing more American than a mullet.”
—Jagger Eaton, Bronze Medalist, Men’s Street Skateboarding, 2020 Tokyo Games
In 1978, legendary Bones Brigade member Alan Gelfand invented the revolutionary jump the “Ollie” and modern-day Street Skateboarding was born. Back then, few could have imagined it would one day become an Olympic spectacle of explosive daring and athleticism or that skaters would find themselves at the epicenter of style and fashion. No one represents this evolving refinement better than Jagger Eaton.
Never one to take himself too seriously, and famous for his mullet, Jagger breezes through life and competition with confidence and wit. Whether wearing a Tom Ford design at New York Fashion Week, posing atop the Empire State Building with bronze medal in hand, or bantering with TV news personalities about his mullet, Jagger is the epitome of style and charisma.
He began competing in the X Games at age 11 and has never looked back. In 2017, he took Gold at the Minneapolis X Games in the SKB Street Amateurs. At the 2019 X Games, he took Silver in SKB Park and 4th in SKB Street. And on the biggest stage of all, in Summer 2021, he carried home a Bronze from Tokyo.
That accomplishment established two “firsts”: the first-time skateboarding was included in the Olympic schedule and the first-ever American medal in Men’s Skateboarding.
And this past Sunday, November 14th, Eaton captured the men’s world champion title at the Street League Skateboarding 2021 Super Crown World Championship in Jacksonville, Florida. This marked the first SLS Super Crown victory for Eaton, who made his tour debut as a wildcard selection two weeks earlier in Lake Havasu and advanced to the final during Saturday's last-chance qualifier. Eaton is the first rookie since Olympic silver medalist Kelvin Hoefler of Brazil in 2015 to win the title.
