Leading blockchain gaming company Sorare today announced their selection inside the Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab’s program to bring its groundbreaking game to football fans around the globe.

Sorare is a new digital platform for football fans to collect, trade and play with officially licensed blockchain cards.

“Ubisoft has been the first leading game editor to willingly explore the potential of Blockchain technology for gaming” said Nicolas Julia, CEO of Sorare. “Sorare is proud to work alongside Ubisoft gaming experts to create an unparalleled digital experience for football fans.”

Football fans have been collecting and playing with physical cards for decades. When it comes to the digital world, it has been impossible to collect them. Traditional game items were neither digitally scarce, nor tradeable; they were not actually owned by gamers.

Unlike other digital cards, Sorare’s blockchain cards are limited edition digital collectibles that gamers can freely trade and use.

Sorare’s fantasy football game is currently in open beta and is already officially licensed by 30 football clubs. Dozens of other major clubs are to join in the coming weeks.

The game features a weekly fantasy football experience where managers can compose teams of 5 blockchain cards and earn rewards. Managers get ranked based on the performance of their players on the pitch, and bonus points related to the power of their blockchain cards.

“We are enthusiastic about Sorare innovation to introduce this new game, with what can become coveted digital collectibles for football fans around the world » said Nicolas Pouard, Blockchain Initiative Director

“Collaborating with Ubisoft allows Sorare to benefit from the expertise we have acquired over the last 30 years in technology, user experience and game design. By supporting Sorare, Ubisoft wants to empower entrepreneurs who will contribute to the creation of the entertainment of tomorrow.”

Blockchain casinos attracting 30,000 players per week

More than 30,000 users are actively playing at blockchain casinos each week, according to research from CryptoGamblingNews.com.

CryptoGamblingNews.com, the leading crypto-focused casino affiliate, analysed player data, stored immutably on a range of blockchains, to estimate the total number of players active on decentralised casinos each week.

The figure exceeds 30,000, with the most activity focused on casinos which sit upon three blockchains: TRON, Ethereum and EOS.

During a one-week period at the end of April, 10 leading blockchain casinos processed more than $60 million in wagers.

A number of blockchain casinos have enjoyed particularly strong growth in 2020; Ethereum-based casinos powered by the FunFair-platform, including CasinoFair.com, roughly doubled its user base in the first four months of the year.

David Bartram, editor at CryptoGamblingNews.com, said: “Over the past three years, blockchain gaming has grown rapidly to the point where decentralised casinos are attracting a commercially significant number of weekly active users.

“These players are attracted by the greater transparency and speed blockchain gaming can offer over traditional, fiat currency casinos. As this user base grows, it would be no surprise to see established casino operators soon looking to incorporate blockchain gaming into their product offerings.”

Lloyd Purser, COO at FunFair Technologies, said: “The numbers are really starting to speak for themselves. We know the benefits the technology can bring and now an ever increasing number of players are understanding and taking advantage of those benefits too.

“Right at the top of the list is they can have a truly fair, or in our case Guaranteed Fair Ⓡ, igaming experience with the same quality and excitement as playing with a traditional online casino. Blockchain igaming is really hotting up, it’s an exciting place to be right now and that will continue into the future as the universe of players continues to rapidly grow.”
