Sorare, an innovative soccer card game where fans can trade limited editions digital collectibles, and the Spanish soccer team Betis have signed a licensing agreement to bring the benefits of blockchain fantasy gaming to soccer fans.
Betis is joining a growing list of well-known European clubs which are creating players’ digital collectibles such as Juventus, Schalke, Atletico Madrid, Porto and Spartak Moscow.
On Sorare, players are represented by limited edition digital collectibles: player cards. Blockchain technology (Ethereum) is used to guarantee the authenticity, provenance and digital scarcity of the collectibles. For every player and every season, Sorare issues one Unique player card, ten Super Rare player cards, 100 Rare player cards.
Every week, managers compose teams of 5 player cards to compete in different fantasy soccer leagues to earn rewards and unlock achievements. Managers get ranked based on the performance of their players on the pitch, and bonus points related to the power of their cards. The more skillful a manager is, the more rewards he can earn in the game (up to 2.64 ethers per week).
Sorare leverages the power of digital collectibles in gaming, with the most well-known sport in the world to create a new way for soccer fans to engage with their favorite players.
