Sorare Finally Kicks Off the NFT-based NBA Fantasy Game
The beta for Sorare's NBA fantasy basketball game, which uses digital collectible cards, is now available. Let's discuss everything about the game.
Sorare, an NFT fantasy sports gaming platform, launched an NFT-based NBA fantasy game after a multi-year collaboration agreement with the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) and National Basketball Association (NBA) last month.
Basically, Sorare in collaboration with the NBA has released its first fully licenced, free-to-play, digital collectable-based fantasy basketball game into beta for the 2022-23 NBA season. The sports platform already has an NFT-based free-to-play Major League Baseball (MLB) game and a popular fantasy football game, both came out this summer.
In brief, Sorare's NBA fantasy game, like the football games and MLB, allows users to acquire free trading cards or buy NFT cards. They may begin to play with the free card and create and manage teams comprised of NFT trade cards representing each NBA player.
The latest NBA fantasy game is not the league's first foray into a blockchain-based endeavour. The league has made significant investments in Top Shot, a prominent marketplace for digital collectables.
- In order to join Sorare's NBA fantasy game, you must first create an account on the game's official website. You can then choose your starting player and build your squad around him.
- Your squad will be ready soon, and you'll be able to join several leagues. You will be able to enter the Common Champion League right away, which gives Limited and Common cards as prizes.
- In order to ensure parity, each club is limited to a five-player squad and must adhere to a points cap based on their ten-game average
- There are 5,000 Limited cards, 100 Super Rare cards, 1 Unique card, and 1,000 Rares in the Sorare NBA fantasy game. By performing well in tournaments, players may grow the number of their card collections and earn incentives. After that, you may use the NFT marketplace on Sorare to make trades using the cards.
- Auctions for cards are held at a certain minimum price and end at a specified time and date. Cards with lower scarcity values will sell at a greater rate every day, but all rarities will be accessible on the NFT market.
All in all, Sorare aims to offer weekly tournaments throughout the season, rewarding participants with real-world prizes like jerseys, tickets, and experiences to help close the gap between the virtual and real worlds.
