Interesting times are ahead for underdogs and overlooked talent in the world of esports and NFTs. Urbanball will be the world’s first mobile street football game powered by the BNB channel. Urbanball NFTs consist of character and skill cards needed to play the game.
- Character cards feature real-life street football players who have earned their place through impressive wins and performances in head-to-head (1v1) tournaments in their home country. These tournaments will be hosted by two-time freestyle football world champion Sean Garnier, whose character will also be included in the Drops as a grand prize.
- Skill cards consist of various soccer techniques that can be used to improve the performance of characters in the game.
Several game modes are offered in which users can pit their characters against other players and the computer in battles. Winners receive special rewards.
Garnier has 19 million social media followers and 2 billion video views. It has partnered with Ex Sports, a fan engagement platform, to give real athletes greater exposure through innovative NFTs. NFTs can be used in games in the future and generate revenue in the process.
Several declines in NFT are expected throughout the year. A full IGO will then take place in December 2022. Each drop features the best players and winners of real-world 1v1 football tournaments such as Adonias Fonseca, Mehdi Amri and Radheya Marca, who collectively have over 5 million followers on the networks. social. Anyone can participate in the tournaments, no matter where they are in the world.
The first NFT Mystery Box consists of a character or skill card from the UK Pack and will be available exclusively on the Binance NFT Marketplace on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 11:00 UTC.
Ex Sports and Garnier unveiled the world’s first freestyle football NFTs at the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition 2021 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the biggest tech show of the year. Binance Blockchain Week was also held there from March 28-30, 2022.
In addition to the NFT pre-launch, Ex Sports recently hosted a unique three-day tournament in partnership with Dubai Tourism and Redbull, pitting five of the world’s top street football talents against each other and showcasing their incredible skills. Each of these talents was scouted and flown to Dubai from a different country. Many of them will participate in the first NFT drop on Binance NFT. This allows them to earn royalties through NFTs.
The collaboration between Binance NFT and Ex Sports came about because both want to nurture emerging talent while supporting the growth of niche sports. Ex Sports pools sports intellectual property and aims to create an ecosystem of real benefits for disadvantaged athletes.
