Launchpool Labs has announced their latest project, NiftyFootball, a non-replaceable token platform for football collectibles.
NiftyFootball is a new football-based NFT collectibles game that has been announced by Launchpool Labs. With this game, players can buy and sell random packs of digital cards to collect and trade. Similar to a traditional paper trading card experience.
Each NFT represents a fictional player with various traits that make up the “DNA” of that trading card. The platform utilizes the same ERC-721 standard used in other NFT games such as CryptoKitties.
Unlike similar platforms such as Sorare, NFTs are all unique. Their uniqueness lies in the random rarity of each card and the attributes of the fictional characters. Sorare cards, on the other hand, are tied to the skills of the real-life players they represent.
After players assemble the team they want, their NFTs will appear in the NiftyFootball app. Through the app or any compatible wallet, NFT holders can view and monitor their digital assets.
With these NiftyFootball NFTs, cardholders must monitor their assets. This is due to the fact that the stats on each card have the potential to be upgraded. Additionally, rankings against other teams in the card pool can be used for more competitive deals. Digital artist Stanley Chow designed all of the NFTs in the NiftyFootball series. he then sold all 1,000 of their initial release in less than five hours.
As part of the game, there are two different packs, the regular pack and the elite pack. The regular pack contains all of the “core attributes and features” included in the game. The Elite Pack offers several additional unique traits that add value to each NFT of the same level.
Reviews from NiftyFootball and LaunchPool Labs
According to Andrew Ivison, CEO of NiftyFootball, “We believe that football-based NFT collectibles have their own market and are modern versions of the player sports cards we all collected back in the day.NiftyFootball appeals to players’ desire to buy, own and trade pseudo-random packs of cards with friends. Each trading card is unique thanks to its DNA, through the minting of coins and the various characteristics assigned to each player. We are eager to take football NFT collectibles to the world and believe the Launchpool community and Launchpool Labs incubator will help us go global.”
Launchpool Labs MD Roxana Nasoi also contributed to the press release, “We have seen massive growth in the eSports fantasy gaming industry, which is why we took notice of the team at NiftyFootball.
