NBA releases nftnfl to promote blockchain Games: Web3 is massively "invading" the sports circle

Time : 06/08/2021 Author : g0i14x Click : + -
        ◎ not only NBA officials, but also many star players and even NBA executives have a very positive attitude towards Web3, which also makes Web3 penetrate into NBA more deeply than other professional sports fields. NBA star Spencer · Ding Weidi once tried to turn his contract worth tens of millions of dollars into a digital investment tool and issue bonds on this basis. ◎ at the Super Bowl event known as the "American Spring Festival Gala" earlier this year, NFL provided every ticket buyer with benefits other than physical tickets &mdash& mdash; An NFT collection marked with ticket holder's seat details.
 
        Recently, NFL announced that it will launch NFT blockchain game "nflrivals" in cooperation with blockchain game studio mythicalgames, which is expected to be released in early 2023. Push the time forward. The NBA (National Professional Basketball Association) previously released the NFT digital collection nbatopshot, which exploded immediately after its launch. Not long ago, NBA also set up a new social media account "nbaxnft". The profile in the home page reads, "NBA official Web3 home page.". Although the overall sales of NFT have shown a relatively obvious downward trend in recent months, the enthusiasm of the sports industry for Web3 has not cooled down, but continues to increase.
 
        Just like NBA star Spencer · Spencer dinwiddee said in a recent interview that the players' conversation in the dressing room has changed from traditional topics to "boring apes, NFT and digital assets". In the first half of this year, NBA established a new social media account called "nbaxnft" on a social platform. According to the official introduction, this is the official Web3 homepage of NBA, with a total of 27000 people paying attention to it so far. Together with this social account, there is an account of the NBA online community platform "discord", which is also used to promote its own Web3 and NFT projects.
 
        In the field of Web3, the NBA has long been dedicated to the game. In 2020, NBA partnered with blockchain technology company dappelabs to launch an NFT digital collection focusing on NBA, which was later the nbatopshot. The content of this kind of digital collection is mainly the symbolic actions of some star players. Fans can purchase, sell, trade and collect digital season symbolic actions by purchasing relevant NFTs. It is worth mentioning that dappelabs is a hot NFT startup company in recent years, and the previous big fire cryptocats and nbatopshots are both the representative works of this company.
 
        After completing the latest round of financing led by coatue, a16z and other well-known institutions last year, the valuation of dappelabs has reached $7.6 billion. According to public information, tokeninsight, a rating agency, predicts that nbatopshots' sales will reach $661million in 2021. According to jennifervandijk, senior vice president of dappelabs, nbatopshot handled more than 25million transactions in total, with total sales of more than $1billion. This considerable "business" naturally makes the NBA pay more attention to the release of NFT products and the exploration in the field of Web3. This year, it launched the playoff series NFT, called "theassociation", which also attracted enthusiastic reactions from fans.
 
        More importantly, not only NBA officials, but also many star players and even NBA executives have a very positive attitude towards Web3, which also makes Web3 penetrate into NBA more deeply than other professional sports fields. As mentioned above, Ding Weidi once tried to turn his contract worth tens of millions of dollars into a digital investment tool and issue bonds on this basis. The encryption application platform calaxy, which he participated in the creation, also announced the completion of $26million financing in June this year. In addition, LeBron · Lebronjames, Stephen · Stephencurry and other stars have issued their own NFT.
 
        In a recent interview, Ding Weidi said that when he was elected to the NBA in 2014, players usually talked about "luxury cars and other things" in the dressing room. Now, boring apes, NFT and digital assets are the focus of discussion. At the Super Bowl event called the "American Spring Festival Gala" earlier this year, NFL provided every ticket buyer with benefits other than physical tickets &mdash& mdash; An NFT collection marked with ticket holder's seat details. At that time, this practice was regarded by many people in the industry as a sign that the collection of tickets by fans officially entered a new era. Recently, NFL announced that it will launch NFT blockchain game "nflrivals" in cooperation with blockchain game studio mythicalgames, which is expected to be released in early 2023, successfully attracting the attention of the industry and fans again.
 
        In addition to these traditional sports events, NFT is also used more and more frequently in areas such as car racing. For example, f1nft has become more and more abundant after many major events. Some Web3 companies are also actively moving closer to the sports industry. In early July, ambergroup, a digital financial technology platform, signed a long-term global contract with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid, becoming the latter's main global sponsor, which immediately set off a wave of new enthusiasm among practitioners. In fact, since 2020, a large number of Web3 enterprises have been "scavenging" top-level sports IP resources, from naming stadiums to sponsoring teams, from basketball, rugby football, to emerging e-sports, with a very rapid momentum.
 
        According to the latest data released by theblock, a crypto data company, the entire NFT market hit a peak of $16.6 billion in monthly trading volume in January this year, but since then it has started a decline mode, and by June it had only $1.04 billion, a 74% month on month decline. The price and trading volume of some NFTs also continued to decline. Taking nbatopshots as an example, after a small outbreak in early 2021, the trading volume began to decline rapidly, and by April this year, it had fallen by nearly 68% year-on-year. Although the relevant person in charge of NBA said in an interview with the media that the sharp fluctuations in the NFT market "have not affected any long-term plans", it is obvious to the naked eye that the decline in value and trading volume has caused interference to other NFT projects in NBA.
 
        We should see that the high compatibility between the sports industry and Web3 has led to a rapid chemical reaction between the two. At present, the development of sports NFT, blockchain games and other applications is quite hot. However, in the eyes of many people in the industry, this is only at an initial stage, and may have a more profound impact in the future. At the beginning of this year, wood, the technical director of dappelabs in China, held a public conversation. In this conversation, he said frankly that NFT can have more use scenarios, including identity certificates, academic credentials, ticketing, copyright authentication, off chain asset certificates, etc., and digital collections. There are also some users who may only have an in-depth understanding of NFT, and it can also have more bearing space in the field of financial derivatives.
 
        "In the future, NFT may not only be limited to the digital collections of avatars, including encrypted cats, which we previously knew, but also have more possibilities.".
