Rising Sports Stars Accelerator built on NFT & DeFi — perfect for NCAA athlete image rights
NFT is a game-changing innovation
NFT is the perfect tool to close the market gap between the fans and the young promising athletes, helping the athletes to raise the money and get the exposure required to progress in their career and become new sports icons. The fans and investors can have verifiable ownership of athlete’s assets in the form of NFTs.
Surprisingly, with the NFTs and DeFi platforms flourish, there was no exclusive sports NFT marketplace or DeFi platform that aims to help to close the market gap between the young promising talents and the fans. Now there is one.
Blocsport.one mission and focus
Swiss sports tech company blocsport.one is building a transparent and reliable sports ecosystem uniting athletes, clubs, brands and fans using blockchain. The company was created in 2019, headquartered in Zurich and to this day went through 2 successful investment rounds.
At first, we built a blockchain-based app for football player registration and transfers, beta is live and the first smart contract transfers executed.
As our second focus project now, we have already launched NFTdeals.io with the Rising Sports Stars official NFT collection, which is the first step to an exclusive NFT Sports Accelerator.
We help the young promising athletes to get the money and exposure for their career development, which is nobody else doing in the world!
Why buying NFTs of young athletes?
There are tons of NFTs nowadays available in many cluttered marketplaces, mostly having no value whatsoever. But the NFTs representing real assets of athletes that have high chances to become the next famous global stars are a different story.
We are building the marketplace with our NFTs 2.0 to get collectibles of emerging high potential star athletes of the future when they are just promising rookies. A successful sports and media career might provide significant upside potential and generate great value.
The Rising Sports Stars Accelerator
Blocsport.one is developing a platform to select, crowdfund and nurture the young athletes, to grow the emerging sports stars at scale. We are aiming to make a significant impact on the way the sports market works now.
Blockchain-based solutions enable crowdfunding at scale and sharing career success and profits with a community in a transparent and secure way.
Our focus is the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) space with over 500.000 athletes registered but the solution can be easily embraced worldwide. The new NCAA guidelines permit collegiate athletes (NCAA athletes) to sign and monetize their business contracts, assets, and NIL rights. This is a huge opportunity for the athletes and the sports business. But there is no platform or marketplace uniting the athletes and sports investors yet.
NFTs 2.0 in the making
There are many options that brands, fans and collectors can interact with the athletes and Rising Sports Stars Accelerator pushes today’s NFT offering to another level.
The typical process starts from athlete authentication through our Blockchain of People (TM) solution. We want to be sure that registered people are real and IPs are real.
Then athletes are ready to create their GENESIS tokens that reflect the name, image and likeness as well as access NFTs that enable fans to interact with the athlete depends on engagement levels with access to content, VIP voting, meet & greet, collectibles and much more.
GENESIS tokens are super important because they form the Athlete Power Index, one of its kind tool to measure athlete potential and future upside. It allows athletes to build communities around them.
At the same time, fans can interact with blocsport.one native token ($BLS ticker, buy here) and earn with the athlete’s NFT enabling staking, affiliate program to earn BNB, access to exclusive NFTs and games of skill. The first games linked to the NFTs will be launched in August.
Beyond NFTs — institutional sports
Blocsport.one already have the football (soccer) Scouting App beta live, with biometric-powered athletes IDs stored securely on the enterprise-grade blockchain, with the athlete’s profiles, performance records and professional videos available on the transparent and secure platform.
Clubs, academies and federations can easily access and verify players information before making a hiring decision, communicate and process club-to-club transfer in a highly secure and efficient paperless way. The first players have been transferred with smart contracts already to European clubs.
Tokenization tools for intangible and tangible assets like marketing right contracts, player contracts, clubs tokenization & financial liquidity with the use of tokens are being discussed with clubs and associations in Europe.
Blocsport.one has all what it takes to grab the huge opportunity opened by the NCAA and make it a new profitable and sustainable business model for the win-win collaboration of all the sports market participants, in the fairest and transparent way, on the blockchain.
