The 21st century is the era of global digitization. Technologies are beginning to be introduced into almost all spheres of life and production.
These digital changes are also affecting the world of football. And that’s not strange, because soccer is the most popular sports game in the world.
NFT is a hotly debated topic at the moment. Although collectible tokens have been around for many years, many people believe that the time is right and that NFT can have a big impact in many areas, including football. But what exactly is NFT? And how can she influence the world of football? Let’s try to solve these puzzles.
What is NFT?
NFT is a non-fungible token, a unique digital asset issued once. Its value is mainly determined by its rarity. While cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are one and the same and can be easily bought or traded on Redot, Binance or any other crypto exchange.
NFT, as opposed to single art, exists as a whole. It is a separate unit programmed into the blockchain code. NFT cannot technically be destroyed or replaced with another similar token.
Simply put, NFT is an object that has passed verification, made its way onto the blockchain, and is now yours, which means it can be sold. For example, you can create a work of art, upload it to the blockchain and thus turn it into an asset. NFT can be anything – digital art, sporting events, clothing, etc.
How does NFT affect the football industry?
But how can digital tokens influence a real industry like football? Let’s take a look at the example of soccer t-shirts.
Football fans are often collectors. They collect all kinds of balls, football player autographs and football paraphernalia. But perhaps the most popular collector’s item is player t-shirts. They are exchanged for fabulous money. But how can something as real as a t-shirt be uploaded to the blockchain?
Everything is very simple. Collectors often do not use collectibles, and collectibles, in turn, are highly weather dependent (condition can deteriorate over time). NFT is an ideal outlet for collectors, designers and regular buyers. After all, the original piece in the collection will always be safe and at the same time it will be easy to sell.
Another area where NFT tokens are used is online soccer games. Users can purchase cards for these games with cryptocurrency. Each of the cards is unique and cannot be tampered with.
NFT is a growing trend in the digital world. With cryptocurrencies, these digital tokens will be able to take over the world in the near future. For the world of football,
NFT means a lot of changes. First of all, with NFT, any asset can become “tokenized”. And it’s the perfect pitch for designers as well as football fans and collectors.
NFT is the ideal copyright protection system. This means that it cannot be copied or reproduced for free. Perhaps the NFT is a new page in the protection of property rights.
