Currently there’s an auction happening for the first player-owned track in the racing game F1 Delta Time. Each track consists out of multiple parts, and right now part 1A of the Grand Prix de Monaco 2020 is on sale. This part of the track currently has a bid of 3.500.000 REVV or $88.708.
Edit: updated the bid amount on Tuesday Dec 1 – 8:20AM UTC
The F1 Delta Time track segement auction will end on December 2nd and the highest bidder wins. Each track segment is an NFT, and each segment is unique. These track segments come in different rarities, and the current auction is for a track segment of the highest Apex tier. Lower tier rarities will become available at a later date and at a great quantity.
Gamers who own a track segment in F1 Delta Time earn dividends over the races that place on their track. The amount someone receives, depends on the track’s rarity. Apex receives the highest percentage of the track fee, while rare gets the smallest.
News season sale
Starting from November 30th gamers can deposit their REVV tokens to join the pre-sale of the F1 Delta Time season 2020 items. By depositing REVV tokens, gamers can create a discount up to 50 percent. The deposit period ends on December 3rd, and one day later the purchase period begins. During that time players can use their deposited REVV tokens to buy keys, and on December 11th the pre-sale ends. After that all unused REVV will be returned to the original owner.
When players deposit a total of 20 million REVV, they will get a 10 percent discount. There will be a 25% discount when 30 million REVV has been deposited, while the 50% discount will unlock with 40 million REVV locked away.
Instead of crates, players will be buying keys. Each of these keys unlocks a total of five digital assets, or non-fungible tokens. Keys are fungible tokens that can be pre-purchased and traded even before they unlock the actual content.
What is F1 Delta Time?
F1 Delta Time is one of the officially licensed sports games from Animoca Brands. In this blockchain game players can collect virtual cars, drivers and car parts. Each of these parts is an unique non-fungible token and can be collected, traded, used or sold individually. Some of the very rare vehicles have sold for 16 thousand dollars through an auction. Animoca Brands already made thousands of dollars through a variety of auctions.
Competitive racing will be a core element of F1 Delta Time. Each car has characteristics unique to the vehicle. Acceleration, grip, top speed, and luck are the elements that will influence the car’s performance. Currently the races are shown top-down and feature limited gameplay options.
The Racing Game presents the players with tracks from the official Formula 1 season playable from your browser. Players go head-to-head in qualifying sessions, before going into the final race. Similar to the Time Trial, car and driver compositions are key. The right track requires the right composition, as well as the most suitable tires for the current weather.
During qualifying, the player is in direct control of their car and driver. The player needs to control the speed of their car, decelerating as the car enters a corner, and then accelerating back out. Timing and control result in better maintained speed, and therefore better times.
