Inter Milan is the latest addition to the fantasy football game Sorare. Following the recent addition of Bayern Munich, Inter is another former Champions League winner joining the ranks of the blockchain-powered card game. The first cards from Inter’s players will go on auction today.
Inter has been a dominant force in Italian football, winning 30 domestic trophies since 1908. The most wanted players are likely to be Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku, Dutch defender Stefan de Vrij, Argentinian rising star Lautaro Martinez and veteran forward Alexis Sanchez. The first bids on Inter Milan players have already been placed on the Sorare marketplace.
There are three types of cards available for auction. The red rare cards have a starting price of 0.01 ETH (approximately 6 dollars), while the blue super rare cards start at 0.1 ETH (~60 dollars). Unique cards have a starting price of 1 ETH. Even the rare cards of popular players sell for more than 100 dollars.
What is Sorare?
Sorare is a fantasy football game powered by blockchain technology. The project also has support from game publisher Ubisoft through the company’s entrepreneurs lab. The fantasy football game is enjoying lots of hype in recent months. Consistently the game is among the most applications on the Ethereum blockchain. In July the company received a four million dollar investment to push the game forward. Before the end of the year, the Paris-based company wants to have approximately 150 different clubs in their portfolio.
Blockchain technology introduces actual scarcity to digital cards, so these cards have a limited supply. Players can use the cards they’ve bought to create a fantasy team. Each card represents a real player. Based on the performance of that player on the actual pitch, the card holders will earn points. Every week the teams with the most points will earn new cards as a reward. The cheapest cards generally sell for a couple of dollars, while the most wanted ones go for well over a thousand dollars a piece. Join the game!
