MotoGP blockchain game has NFT sale
The wave of NFTs also extends to the motorsport industry. MotoGP Ignition by game developer Animoca Brands is a blockchain game with real teams, riders and machines as NFTs.
The second NFT card pack was launched on the 29th of this month, but it has already sold out (sold out) within 24 hours due to its popularity.
NFT (Non-Fungible Token) is attracting attention for its advantage of being able to prove ownership on the Internet, and is being used in various fields such as digital art, games, and music.
For example, an NFT-ized digital trading card can prove that it owns it, and based on that, it becomes possible to trade cards (NFT) with other users.
At the MotoGP ignition, the first sale last month attracted attention, with more than 70,000 orders placed within minutes of the launch.
In the second installment, a total of 7,000 card packs with the theme of eight riders and motorcycles are on sale, and although the purchase was limited to one at a time, it is sold out.
Among the eight riders is Takaaki Nakagami, a Japanese rider. In addition, the team to which Mr. Nakagami belongs, LCR Honda and the machine Honda RC213V are also NFTs.
Motorsport blockchain game
MotoGP Ignition is an officially licensed blockchain game from MotoGP that uses ERC-20 standard REVV tokens for payment. The same REVV ecosystem has released F1 themed F1 Delta Time and more.
The blockchain will be the FLOW blockchain developed by Dapper Labs, known for CryptoKitties and NBA Top Shot.
In MotoGP ignition, players buy NFT card packs and open them to get each NFT, just like a real trading card.
There are three types of NFT cards: rider, motorcycle, and team, but each card pack can also be traded as an NFT. It is said that the opening of the card pack sold this time will be lifted from May.
In addition to collecting the obtained NFTs, you can use them in races with other players using the “Legend” function of the MotoGP ignition.
This game function is said to be compatible with the NFT collection function to some extent, and users can freely choose whether to collect NFTs or play around the game.
