Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal digital collectibles to feature on Flow blockchain.
- Dapper Labs the company behind NBA’s Top Shot
- Users able to buy or sell NFTs on a peer-to-peer basis
- Secondary market feature being added to Fantastec SWAP’s primary market
Blockchain-based digital collectibles platform Fantastec SWAP has partnered with Dapper Labs, the maker of the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Top Shot platform, to build a new non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace for soccer.
The collaboration will see Fantastec SWAP NFTs relaunched this summer on Flow, a next-generation blockchain developed by Dapper Labs, with users able to buy or sell NFTs on a peer-to-peer basis.
The move means Fantastec will port over millions of its NFTs and build a new marketplace on Flow with 15 ‘distinctive levels of craftsmanship and creativity’ to engage sports fans. It is also set to provide SWAP collectors increased value creation opportunities through a secondary market feature being added to SWAP’s primary market.
European soccer clubs Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal, as well as other leading teams, will feature on the marketplace. Fantastec SWAP’s recent collections have included NFTs ranging from distinctive collectibles such as Erling Haaland’s signature from his first season with Dortmund, to iconic moments including Gareth Bale’s wonder goal for Real Madrid in the 2018 Uefa Champions League Final.
“This is a significant upgrade for our worldwide SWAP fan community,” said Simon Woollard, Fantastec co-founder and product development partner. “Over the last few seasons we have consistently crafted a memorable range of unique NFTs and we are especially proud to have created the first ever women’s football NFT collections with the Arsenal women’s team.
“There have been so many special players and moments throughout the past three European football seasons – now our SWAP fans have the option to sell these highly prized NFTs via the Flow secondary market. It’s an exciting milestone and brings powerful new features to worldwide fans utilising our platform today and in the future.”
