Fantasy football game Sorare will auction 50 Player of the Year cards starting from January 1st 2021. They have selected the players based on their in-game performance, cult status among the community and their personal favorites. All cards will sell through an auction on the official website.
The Sorare staff has selected 25 players. There’s a maximum of one player per club, of which 15 players come from the European competitions, one American team and one Asian team. Sorare has selected players from clubs with the 2020/2021 license only. They will use two of the fifty cards for giveaways on Twitter.
The first cards are scheduled for the Friday 1st Jan between 3PM to 4PM UTC. There will also be more cards included in the normally scheduled auctions. The final ten cards are included in Sunday’s Power Hour on the 3rd of Jan from 9PM until 10PM UTC.
These aren’t the first limited edition cards. In October Sorare worked together with Opensea to launch a series of limited edition cards with an artistic touch. They auctioned 27 cards with prices between 0.2 to 1,5 ETH.
Sorare is on fire
It’s very likely that these digital collectibles will sell for hundreds or maybe even thousands of dollars. Sorare is one of the top performers in terms of weekly revenue. In the past week there has been almost 400 thousand dollars in trading volume, while the past month has been good for 1.65 million dollars. Sorare is one of the highest value gaming platforms in the blockchain space.
In recent week the Sorare team signed up with teams like Turkish powerhouse Fenerbahce, German record champion Bayern Munich and the Spanish superstars from Real Madrid. In the past month an unique card from French striker Kylian Mbappé sold for a record of $64.744, underlining the value Sorare brings to the community.
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 popular applications on the Ethereum blockchain. In addition the company received a four million dollar investment to push the game forward, while signing FC Barcelona star Pique as a spokesperson and adding Real Madrid to the game.
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!
