Messi’s Missing Crypto Millions

Messi's Missing Crypto Millions
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Poor old Lionel Messi. It’s not exactly going to plan on the pitch for him yet at PSG. And off it – well let’s say he’s not cracked the crypto game either.

In the summer he agreed to be paid part of his signing-on fee in his new club Paris Saint-Germain’s own fan token. With cryptocurrencies at the start of a record-breaking run, it looked like a sure-fire way for the world’s best footballer to make more millions.

But it hasn’t worked out that way, according to analysis from Cloudbet.com the world’s oldest crypto sportsbook.

Messi’s unexpected transfer from cash-strapped Barcelona was announced on 10th August. He signed up for free, in a move designed  to get his huge million-dollar weekly wage off Barca’s books. League bosses were penalising them for their abject failure to keep the club’s deficit within permitted parameters.

The vastly wealthy PSG were so delighted to land the world’s biggest football star that they paid him an interesting signing-on fee.

Part of his “welcome pack”, they said, would be paid in cash as normal, but in a first for football, part of the fee would be gifted to him in PSG fan tokens.

Messi could be forgiven for looking kindly on PSG’s offer. The club’s token had almost tripled in value from the start of August to a record on the day of the Messi announcement.

Traders at Cloudbet took a deeper dive into the deal to assess how the Argentinian maestro’s signing-on fee is looking now.

On 10th August, the PSG token was valued at $49.83.

Media speculation across the continent suggests Lionel Messi was gifted one million euros worth of tokens. On that day the Euro-USD exchange rate was 1.17. So let’s estimate that PSG’s wealthy Qatar owners gave him $1.17m worth of tokens.

Trading at $49.83, this means Messi would have received 23,480 PSG tokens.

So how much money has Lionel Messi made from this deal? Well, as of today things aren’t looking terribly good. The PSG token recently traded at…. $19.02

That defeat by Man City hasn’t helped PSG or it’s cryptocoin’s value.

If Messi had received what is speculated to be one million euros in fan tokens on 10th August, his estimated 23,480 tokens would now be worth… $453,436

Which means if he cashed it in now it would only be worth 40% of what it was worth on the day that he signed for PSG!

American football stars like Aaron Rogers might be in the news for all the wrong reasons right now, but they’ve made headlines for being early adopters of Bitcoin salaries. If Messi had embraced BTC he’d be a lot richer.

Back on 10th August 2021, BTC was trading around $45,600.

And now? It’s at $58,000, a +25% rise. That $1.17m signing-on gift would now be around $1,460,000 – more than a million dollars more than the fee is worth in PSG tokens.

Cloudbet Announces Cash Out Feature for Wimbledon 2022

Cloudbet Announces Cash Out Feature for Wimbledon 2022

Customers can now cash out their bets – new feature for the world’s most prestigious tennis tournament.

Cloudbet is now offering its customers a brand new feature: The chance to cash out their bets during a live event.

The new feature launched ahead of the start of Wimbledon 2022 in London this week. Cloudbet offers several markets at this tournament for customers to bet on quickly and safely via bitcoin and 17 other cryptocurrencies.

With Cloudbet’s new cash out feature, users can accept a return on their bet before the result of the bet is determined.

Some of the many available Wimbledon markets on Cloudbet include: Outright winner, match winner, set winner, total games, game handicap, correct score, live betting and more. All bets on Cloudbet can be made using bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, allowing users faster speeds on  transactions, enhanced levels of privacy and considerably lower fees.

Though Cloudbet odds have Novak Djokovic as the favorite, rival Rafael Nadal is looking to upset the Serbian sensation, who has struggled this season. Nadal, winner of both the French and Australian Opens this year, seems to have made a speedy recovery from a foot injury.

On the women’s side, Poland’s Iga Swiatek remains the strong favorite, as she aims to maintain her position as the No. 1-ranked female player in the world. The 21-year-old has won an impressive 35 matches in a row, and claimed victory at the French Open earlier in June.

Chasing her is second favourite Coco Gauff. The teen sensation returns to a competition that three years ago saw her burst onto the scene as a 15-year-old with an incredible Wimbledon run that was ended only by the eventual winner.

Cloudbet unveiled its new feature even amid the deepest cryptocurrency slump in years. The bitcoin betting operator’s turnover has largely held steady, suggesting that while markets are faltering, customers are not cashing out their interest in crypto.

“Cloudbet has served the community for almost 10 years and we’ve seen a lot of ups and downs,” said Cloudbet spokesperson Leandro Rossi. “Our customers aren’t going anywhere, and neither are we. We will continue to offer them more features to benefit from the crypto advantage.”

Since the 1990s, the concept of playing video games/PC games has evolved significantly. In the past we had to settle for Tetris, but today’s video games are more interactive, interesting, entertaining, and life-like.

However, gaming is no longer limited to PCs, Playstation, or mobile devices, as a new sort of gaming has developed – yep, you guessed it, we are talking about Blockchain games/NFT games.

In NFT gaming, you can purchase in-game digital assets and trade them on Crypto/NFT exchanges. The NFT has transformed the online gaming business in recent years, benefiting both developers and players.

However, the question remains: which NFT games are the best?

According to our market study, the following 7 (live and upcoming) NFT games are entertaining to play, dependable, and allow you to earn crypto coins:

  1. Axie Infinity
  2. Cryptokitties
  3. Chain Z Arena
  4. Evolution Land
  5. Illuvium
  6. Ember Sword
  7. Gods Unchained

So, without further ado, let’s get into the details of the top nft crypto games for 2022.

Axie Infinity NFT Game

Axie Infinity, sometimes known as AXS, is a prominent and profitable crypto and NFT initiative. The game allows players to play and earn tokens, which they can then trade — sometimes for genuine cash.

The game allows users to own and trade fierce monsters that enjoy fighting, known as “Axies.” Each Axie is a Non-Fungible Token/NFT that is distinct from the others. To achieve the objectives, the player can own, trade, breed, and even battle the Axies.

There are two kinds of tokens in the game.

  • SLPs (Small Love Portions) were utilized to breed the Axies.
  • The game’s governance tokens are Axie Infinity Shards/AXS.

Axie Infinity is a game that many of us wished we could play as children. Axie Infinity’s developers have taken nostalgic themes from our youth and applied them to the Blockchain concept – which is both enjoyable and lucrative.

Cryptokitties

This NFT game is based on Blockchain and revolves around breeding beautiful cats that are one-of-a-kind and owned by just one person at a time.

  1. In the Cryptokitties NFT game, you can:
  2. Buy and sell one-of-a-kind cat characters,within the community,
  3. Create collections to get cryptocurrency rewards.
  4. Improve your cat’s talents by breeding gorgeous cats.
  5. Compete against your opponents in puzzle games.

The amount of Crypto you can earn is determined by how well you hit the game’s objectives and how much time you devote to it.

The cat prices could be as little as USD 0.1 or as high as USD 6 figures. At the auction, you can select the selling price for your cat. The price of your cat’s level/skills may rise or fall dramatically depending on the level/skills of your cat.

Chain Z Arena NFT Gaming

Chain Z Arena is a dungeon-based RPG in which you must defeat your opponent in order to gain SOUL dropping NFTs. At the start of Chain Z Arena, you will be given the option of choose between three Blockchains, and your decision will have an impact on the transactions that follow. At the start of the game, you can select TRX, ETH, or EOS.

Chain Z Arena has 5 game modes:

  1. Idle mode: Bounty Mining
  2. Active Levels: To increase your talents and meet the boos at every level 15, you must fight and win.
  3. Cryptogon:A paid PVP game in which you form a team of six characters and battle the opponent.
  4. The Arena: In traditional PVP games, you will be assigned opponents based on your abilities.
  5. Crystal Orb Arena: Similar to the arena mode, but with more resources to improve your hero’s abilities.

Daily SOUL NFT drops are available for free at Chain Z Arena, but you must login every 24 hours to collect them. The SOUL drops will be placed to your in-game wallet, where you can then utilize them as needed.

Evolution Land Gaming NFT

Evolution Land is a Blockchain NFT virtual simulation game in which you can design and control a fantasy world. Because Evolution Land is based on mainstream public Blockchain technology, you may secure your ownership by using Blockchain technology. This NFT game includes the following gameplay modes: management, NFT collection, gene, battle, auction, and breeding.

Evolution Land also allows the player to own/control the economy, allowing them to purchase, sell, and exchange their game assets for cryptocurrency. You may breed and improve the Apostles (game characters) to drill, breed, and even fight better in the future, and exchange them.

Illuvium

Illuvium, billed as the first AAA blockchain-based game to hit the cryptoverse, is one of, if not the, most anticipated P2E titles to be released in 2022. The player goes on an adventure through a fantasy open environment, where they must explore and capture roaming animals known as Illuvials. Illuvials and all other in-game items will be stored on-chain as NFTs in the player’s wallet and may thus be profitably sold or exchanged. Illuvium also includes an auto-battler system similar to that found in DOTA Auto Chess and Teamfight Tactics. Illuvium is similar to Pokemon, but instead of the traditional turn-based battle system, it’s a 3D auto-fight in an enclosed Arena.

In addition to the core game, Illuvium:Zero is a building game that adds a land component to Illuvium, allowing players to farm materials on their land to develop their own industrial complex.

Ember Sword

Ember Sword is a forthcoming free-to-play MMORPG set in the titular digital world, which is home to the four nations of Solarwood, Duskeron, Edison, and Sevrend. The gameplay is reminiscent of the internet sensation Runescape from the 1990s. Players will be able to travel the globe in search of monsters, bosses, and competing players in order to level up. Players who want to ply their trade as master craftsmen or merchants can explore the world in search of goods and rares to build unique, tradable NFT items.

Ember, the game’s ERC-20 token, may be used to purchase land, collectibles, subscription plans, and other items.

What differentiates Ember Sword is its approach to world-building. Unlike other similar MMORPGs, the lands (which are NFTs) in Ember Sword are owned by thousands of players, allowing them to play an active role in world design. Ember Sword is currently in pre-alpha and will be available for community testing in 2022.

Gods Unchained

Gods Unchained is a fantasy NFT game that features NFT cards that are one-of-a-kind and can be purchased and exchanged.

This is a free-to-play NFT card game in which you have complete control over the in-game goods. This is a competitive NFT card game in which the player must devise a game strategy in order to outwit their opponents.

The player can earn money in the P2E segment by defeating the opponents. The coolest thing is that you can earn NFTs in-game and sell them for real money. You will earn digital cards by playing and unlocking packs. As you participate in the “Weekend Ranked Tournaments,” you can earn Flux, which is an enhancing tool that increases the value of your common cards on the NFT market.

Conclusion on Top NFT Crypto Games for 2022

You can possess collectibles in the NFT games and exchange them for a higher profit.

Aside from that, the aforementioned NFT games enable you to transfer ownership, secure transactions, unique cards/characters, and an overall wonderful investment potential in the realm of digital currency.

Because the Blockchain application is new and still in its early stages, you must be extra cautious about the amount you pay. On the other hand, we can’t deny that the NFT games are attracting more and more gamers all around the world by the second. This could soon become a billion-dollar market in its own right, and you might want to be a part of it .
