ePlay rolls out e-sports non-fungible-token program

2021-03-25 10:04 ET - News Release

Mr. Trevor Doerksen reports


ePlay Digital Inc. launched the company's NFT (non-fungible-token) platform at the e-sports investor day event on March 25, 2021.

ePlay's e-sports NFT platform brings styles, scenes and rewards from and to games as collectibles tied to a blockchain -- a digital ledger similar to the blockchains used for digital currencies such as bitcoin. The e-sports NFT platform is interoperable with ePlay's in-app marketplaces, leading NFT marketplaces, and ePlay's 10-plus worlds and games, including Big Shot Basketball, Howie Go Viral and other titles. The e-sports NFT platform includes a software development 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, 3-D and immersive fitness, sports, e-sports 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 e-sports NFT platform.

"ePlay games are supercompetitive -- down to the viral droplet in Howie Go Viral and down to the inch in our upcoming fitness app," said Trevor Doerksen, chief executive officer 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 3-D 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 allows digital and physical objects and art to be bought and sold. Recent high-profile transactions include Beeple, an artist, selling digital artwork for $69-million, an NBA Top Shots asset sold for $230-million and NFL football player Robert Gronkowski driving $1.8-million in digital trading cards.
