SportsIcon boosts sports in the metaverse

Published

on

SportsIcon the NFT platform for Sports NFTs today announced today that it is planning to launch The Sports Metaverse, the world’s first virtual world specifically focused on sports.

Dr. Dave Ranyard announced the launch of a new SportsIcon project today at the 36th annual Game Developers’ Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. The Sports Metaverse is a virtual environment solely dedicated to sports.

Built by SportsIcon, Sports Metaverse allows you to trade NFTs

For the first time in history, the world’s most famous athletes, brands, and clubs have gathered in one location. Sports Metaverse is a metaverse that allows you to exchange NFTs, acquire and develop property, interact with renowned athletes in 3D, and visit stadiums. It was created by SportsIcon and industry veterans from Sony, Doom, Playstation Home, and Nvidia.

The NFTs include a masterclass with well-known athletes. Stars like Romelu Lukaku, a Belgian footballer who has represented his country and currently plays for Chelsea in the English Premier League, provide unique insights into their experiences and the secrets of their training success.

These contain interviews with the stars discussing their lives and how they become who they are now, as well as videos of them on the practice field. As part of the initiative, Lukaku was volumetrically recorded and will appear in 3D in the sports metaverse:

“I’m going to teach you on how I accept a penalty in the Sports Metaverse — one of the most difficult moments in my profession.” It’s not only about putting up a good show physically. It’s all about mental focus and performance. There’s a lot of pressure here, and you only have one shot. “I want you to know what it’s like to practice with me one-on-one — what it’s like to be a professional football player,” Lukaku said.

“The Sports Metaverse is the next step in the growth of the fan-sport interaction. Consumer behavior has shifted dramatically as a result of Covid and web3. “We aim to bring the fan closer to the action, allowing them to interact with their favorite athletes and businesses, buy land next to them, and connect with them in totally new ways,” Worsey explained.

SportsIcon is backed by rapper turned investor Nas

Nas, Dapper Labs, Dapper Labs CEO Roham Gharegozlou, Youtube Founder Chad Hurley, Hedera and Reserve Founder Andrew Masanto, and ex-NBA star Andrew Bogut are all investors in SportsIcon.

Aside from Lukaku, The Sports Metaverse is lining up a slew of sports stars and businesses, with deals in the works with top players in soccer, tennis, MMA, basketball, and baseball. In June, the Sports Metaverse will have a public land sale.

Metaоni are unique NFTs to be launched

Published

on

Meta0ni is the first collection of 4444 0niverse NFTs and comprises hundreds of hand-drawn qualities that are inspired by a variety of traditional Japanese tales. Collectors of the Onis will have access to a wide variety of one-of-a-kind benefits, some of which include premium access to the P2E game, deflationary supply, NFT staking, free airdrops, and a great deal of other benefits as well.

Twenty days following the initial public minting, ten percent of the revenue will be used to sweep the floor price. After that, twenty percent of the royalties earned from secondary sales will be utilized each month to first sweep the floor, then burn the NFT.

Players fight against one another in order to accumulate $SOULS, the most common form of currency used in the 0niverse. The more championships that are won, the more $SOULS holders will have accumulated by the end of the season

“Owners of Meta0nis will receive EARLY ACCESS to both the Alpha and Beta versions of the game before it is officially released, and they will be able to use their own Meta0nis as game characters. In addition, holders are able to wager their Metaoni in the P2E Game in order to acquire additional $SOULS.”

Trading can take place with $SOULS, and they will be listed on decentralized exchanges. $SOULS will be the single and exclusive form of currency that can be obtained in the 0niverse, including in games, merchandise, and other areas.

“To celebrate the successful establishment of our very own community of individuals who have the same enthusiasm and perspective with regard to the 0niverse, we will be releasing collectibles for our people and our fans.”

“Every person who owns a Metaoni participates in a vote to determine which of the Metaonis in the NFT collection will serve as our 0niRep for the manufacturing of merchandise. The owner of this voted Meta0ni will earn a portion of the proceeds from the sale of merchandise in the form of $SOULS on a consistent basis.”

Tiger Beer released an NFT project

Published

on

In order to pay homage to the Year of the Tiger, Tiger Beer Malaysia introduced a brand new product. The brewer decided to collaborate with the Malaysian streetwear brand Pestle & Mortar Clothing in order to introduce an NFT product range.

The Tiger Archives is home to 6,688 individually crafted NFTs, each of which is a one-of-a-kind piece. Within a few minutes of becoming on sale, all of them had been purchased on OpenSea, so it will probably be difficult for users to get their hands on one. The NFTs were modeled after the noble tiger, which served as their inspiration. The other NFTs were essentially variants of the “Lucky Tiger” game, albeit with a variety of focuses and perspectives. Investors who purchase a Tiger Beer NFT will not only be supporting the brand, but they will also have unique possibilities and access to things that are not available to the general public.

It is possible that it is connected to the concept of the NFT collection, which is Tiger Beer’s drive to achieve significant goals in 2022

Because the company made the decision to produce beer despite the fact that some individuals argued that it was a terrible choice, it appears to be adhering to the principle of the brave and daring attitude as a concept.

However, the alcoholic beverage industry has seen plenty of other companies enter the Web3 market before Tiger Beer did so. The adjustment has already been implemented by a few other well-known beer brands. One of these is the introduction of a Heineken-branded virtual beverage into the Metaverse by the company. Even Absolut Vodka has created a Metaverse based on the Coachella music festival.

FC Porto steps into the sports metaverse

Published

on

Today, Upland made the announcement that they will be bringing European football to the metaverse by forming a strategic collaboration with FC Porto. The overall goal of the two groups is to exert influence on the development of fandom in the metaverse. This will comprise a variety of NFT collections as well as a digital version of a football stadium.

FC Porto, the champions of Portugal’s Primera Liga in 2022, is making new strides in the Upland metaverse

As part of this new relationship, the football club will construct a digital stadium in Upland and will also produce collectible NFTs of both the team and its players.

It is important to note that the Upland metaverse corresponds to the physical world. As a direct consequence of FC Porto’s incorporation into Upland, the Portuguese metropolis of Porto will soon become accessible within the metaverse. This indicates that followers will be able to purchase NFT homes that are mapped to their actual addresses in the real world. The development of Estádio do Drago (also known as Dragon Stadium) in Upland will, of course, serve as the primary focus of this endeavor.

There is no question that its NFTs, which will be the first suite of NFTs offered by a European football club, will also be a key lure for supporters. Fans will have the opportunity to gather and exchange NFTs in Upland as a result of this. Even player-owned and player-operated shops on the metaverse’s virtual properties will be a part of the platform’s distinctive gameplay features when it launches.

Excited fans won’t have to hold their breath for very much longer before they can appreciate their team’s virtual activities. In point of fact, the initial stage of the rollout of the FC Porto franchise in Upland is scheduled to take place during the 2022–2023 season.
