Ubisoft is a French video game company with a net income of over $130m. They have published some of the top titles like Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry and many more. Ubisoft has welcome Sorare in their Entrepreneurs Lab’s program to take their football digital collectible game global.
Sorare is a licensed football digital collectible platform where users can collect and sell blockchain football cards. Sorare offers player cards from over 30 football clubs with many more to come. Their gaming arena is currently live and players can form a team of 5 to compete for weekly prizes.
Football fans have been collecting physical cards and participating in fantasy leagues for years. However, those collectibles have an enormous amount of quantity and there isn’t any true value to those. Moreover, players in fantasy leagues are just virtual figures in which users can’t sell or do anything else with them.
Sorare allows users to have full ownership of their cards which they can trade and sell freely. Player cards are scored according to their real-life performance and can be leveled up as well. Each card has a limited quantity and is unique to each season. When a player starts performing better, the value of the card starts to increase too. A player from Standard de Liege sold the card for $280 Euro last week.
What the partners have to say
Quoted from Nicolas Julia, CEO of Sorare, “Ubisoft has been the first leading game editor to willingly explore the potential of Blockchain technology for gaming. Sorare is proud to work alongside Ubisoft gaming experts to create an unparalleled digital experience for football fans.”
