The blockchain-powered fantasy football game Sorare is currently topping the charts for NFT sales. The game started selling player cards based on the South Korean K-League generating 93 thousand dollars in sales in the past seven days. That’s a little bit more than the 90 thousand by Decentraland, followed by 58 thousand by Cryptovoxels.
Since a few weeks Sorare is operating on the Ethereum blockchain, which now enables tracking website like Nonfungibles to keep an eye on all the sales. In the past five weeks there’s an average of approximately 70 thousand dollars in sales. That means that the current 7 days have been well above average.
Last week the fantasy football game announced that the K-League would become part of their game. It’s the company’s first efforts to embrace the Asian market. Sorare has the ambition to embrace the Top 20 football leagues across the world.
The highest individual card sale has been 3374 dollars for a one-of-a-kind Memphis Depay card. Sorare is also selling card packs, and the most expensive one was sold for over 13 thousand euros.
What is Sorare?
Sorare is a fantasy football game powered by blockchain technology. This means that cards are actually limited in 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. Cards earn experience points as well, and as a result they become more powerful. Players can join different competitions that limit the usage of cards for example based on their strength, the league they are from or the age of the player they represent. Join the game!
