Sorare is on a mission to bring soccer to the blockchain. While Sorare cards are first and foremost valuable as in-game items, we’re excited to team up with OpenSea to drop a unique set of special edition cards. We’ve named the collection “Liquid Dream” to celebrate the collaboration.
What are Sorare digital cards?
Football fans have been collecting physical cards for decades. However, up until now, it’s been impossible to collect in the digital world. Sorare allows soccer fans to collect and trade digital cards, while also using them to play a global fantasy game. Each player card is certified by a club or league and generated on the Ethereum blockchain, so there’s provable scarcity. Each card is unique.
Sorare cards come in different scarcity (rare = 100 maximum per season, super-rare = 10 per season, and unique) and a different design per season. With this drop, Sorare is creating the first of its kind soccer collectible card, which will be available for auction directly on OpenSea over the next 27 days.
What makes Sorare different from other types of Non-Fungible Token’s? Sorare has partnered with more than 100+ clubs including Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, and Atletico de Madrid to digitize soccer cards. Since these cards are blockchain assets, they can be freely exchanged and sold on secondary markets. We can view these cards as liquid intellectual property navigating the OpenSea’s.
Introducing the Liquid Dream Series
Football is not only the most followed sport in the world but it is most importantly the most global sport in the world. You only need a ball and you can start playing with friends anywhere. To reflect that, we’ve wanted to create a Series with cards from all continents and representing as many countries as possible.
Each one of these 27 cards has a different liquid design. Some might think that sports cards are the next generation’s art – we certainly think that this special edition exists at the intersection of art, sentimental interest, and financial incentive.
These cards will also be useful as in-game items. If you manage to grab one during the auctions, make sure to visit Sorare and start competing with them in our global fantasy football game. There are ETH and card prizes to be won twice per week!
Among the 27 cards that will be auctioned, we wanted to highlight a dream team of 5 players:
