The Argentinian football club River Plate is joining the blockchain-powered fantasy football game Sorare. The club is a South American powerhouse, winning the Copa Libertadores four times of which the last time in 2018. Sorare now has the first player cards available for auction.

The addition of River Plate means that Sorare now has two Argentinian clubs in its portfolio. In May last year they signed Gimnasia La Plata with Diego Maradona as head coach back then as their first move into South America.

Earlier this month Sorare announced Liverpool as their latest addition. While the Player of the Year cards were announced late December. The fantasy football game keeps growing its market with new clubs and attracting more football fans. Right now there are 3466 Ethereum addresses with tokenized cards in them, while in the middle of September there were 1746 wallets.

This increase in active collectors and players can also be seen in the weekly revenue. Sorare consistently is among the highest grossing projects with the biggest trading volume.

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!
