The F1 2020 70th Anniversary Apex Car for the racing game F1 Delta Time sold in an auction for 987 thousand REVV, which is approximately $270.000 at the time of the auction. This makes this particular NFT the most expensive vehicle in the F1 Delta Time game. The buyer, who goes by the nickname Kuririn, already put the car up for sale, and they’re asking 3 million REVV.
Vehicles in F1 Delta Time come in different rarities. The Apex cars are the most valuables ones, as there’s only one of each available. The 70th Anniversary racing game is the third and final Apex car for the 2020 F1 season.
Earlier this week Animoca Brands also sold their first event NFTs. Players can now own a stake in in-game racing events. These NFTs earn the owner passive income from all races taken tapping into these events. They sold 800 rare event NFTs for 10.000 REVV each, making Animoca $1.8 million within an hour.
What is F1 Delta Time?
Animoca has the official Formula 1 license to make F1 Delta Time. 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.
