NFT collector and market influencer Pranksy has teamed up with Sorare, the popular blockchain-based sports card game, in a partnership named “Pranksy Plays”.
As part of the collaboration, the NFT collector has invested in Sorare’s football cards and will invite his community to join private leagues with prizes, including NFTs from the Pranksy vault, VIP Premier League tickets, and merchandise provided by Sorare.
Two private leagues will be available to players, with one accepting only free-to-play cards, and the other requiring Super Rare or Unique cards.
Pranksy and his team have invested in Sorare cards, focusing on Super Rare players under 23 years old, purchased from the auction house or secondary market.
Sorare is making waves
Pranksy expressed his excitement for the partnership on Twitter, stating that Sorare has been on his radar for years and praising the platform for being consistently placed among the top 10 NFT projects for weekly volume despite being less mentioned amongst mainstream collectors.
Sorare’s recent partnership with the Premier League also caught Pranksy’s attention, as he is a regular Fantasy Premier League player.
Pranksy’s journey over the years
Pranksy has made a name for himself in the NFT market as an NFT whale, project creator, and market influencer. His journey as a collector began with Cryptokitties in 2017, and he gained attention for his success as an NBA Topshot collector, recording almost $7 million in profits.
Despite the bear market, his wallet’s net worth is estimated to be $6.7 million, with $4.64 million in NFTs, including 40 Doodles worth a total of $445,000!
Sorare is the most popular blockchain-based fantasy sports game with over 3 million subscribers since 2019 and around 200,000 daily active players worldwide.
The game is free-to-play, but purchasing rarer cards allows participation in more prestigious leagues. Participants earn points with their cards based on the real-life performance of players.
The partnership between Pranksy and Sorare presents a significant opportunity for both parties. With “Pranksy Plays”, Sorare aims to attract NFT collectors from Pranksy’s community while Pranksy could reach sports fans unfamiliar with NFTs.
This partnership is likely to boost Sorare’s visibility and attract more users to the platform while enhancing Pranksy’s reputation and influence within the NFT market.
