The eSports NFT Platform is interoperable with ePlay’s in-app marketplaces, leading NFT Marketplaces, and ePlay’s 10+ worlds and games including Big Shot Basketball, Howie Go Viral, and other titles. The eSports NFT Platform includes a Software Developers Kit (SDK) that helps artists, partners, gamers, and game developers create, export, and import NFT collectibles to, and from, NFT marketplaces.
ePlay’s Augmented Reality, 3D, and immersive fitness, sports, eSports, and entertainment games and apps offer phenomenal live experiences that are celebrity-driven, valuable, precious, and unique. ePlay turns in-app experiences and marketplaces into NFT marketplaces and experiences with its eSports NFT platform.
“ePlay games are super competitive – down to the viral droplet in Howie Go Viral and down to the inch in our upcoming fitness app,” says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay Digital. “Users tap, swipe, and move their feet, negotiate virtual worlds, advance levels, purchase premium digital items, and, now, bid on limited edition NFT art, wearables, worlds, gear, props, leaderboards, rewards, and highlights all viewable in 3D and augmented reality within various game worlds, NFT marketplaces, and beyond.”
New partners will be announced for the ePlay NFT Platform offering premium and limited edition NFT collectibles as details are finalized. NFTs are a blockchain innovation that allow digital and physical objects and art to be bought and sold. Recent high profile transactions include the artist Beeple selling digital artwork for $69 million, NBA Top Shots asset sold for $230 million, and NFL Football player Robert Gronkowski drives $1.8 million in digital trading cards.
