Oval3 Fantasy NFT Rugby Collection launches on Binance NFT Marketplace
After the nonfungible token (NFT) frenzy in the fields of football and basketball Oval3 has come to fulfill rugby fans’ desires by quickly becoming the global leader in digital entertainment for this sport. Oval3 is a Web3 fantasy game dedicated to rugby and is now on the verge of launching a portion of its unique NFT collection on Binance NFT. With this timely partnership, just before the Rugby World Cup 2023 in France in September, Oval3 enhances its visibility and offers its collection on one of the largest NFT marketplaces in the industry: the renowned Binance NFT marketplace.
Is Oval3 the next Sorare of rugby?
Oval3 aims to bring all professional rugby clubs to the heart of Web3. They want to offer supporters and players an immersive fantasy league game that combines this magical sport with NFTs. To achieve this, the company has already signed several exclusive partnerships with the French Ligue Nationale de Rugby (LNR) and the American Major League Rugby (MLR).
With the official license from the LNR for a duration of nine years, which covers the prestigious TOP14 and its second division PROD2, Oval3 has associated more than 1500 players and 30 professional clubs with the project. The platform quickly gained global prominence through its partnership with the rapidly growing MLR, the American rugby championship, which presents significant potential for Oval3 in the transatlantic sports market.
Since the opening of the marketplace on April 7, 2023, players have been able to purchase their cards through auction-style bidding on Polygon and start assembling their team of stars. In just two months, the fantasy Web3 platform has generated over $100,000 in sales.
Oval3’s NFT collection will be available on Binance NFT for a period of two months
It’s official: For two months, some Oval3 NFTs will be exclusively available on Binance NFT. Discover an exceptional selection of cards representing players from TOP14, PRO D2 and MLR clubs.
Each week, one club from each championship will be featured, and different cards will be auctioned off for 24 hours each day. The available supply per day will be:
- One unique card
- Two super rare cards
- Four rare cards
- Approximately 15 limited cards (featuring all available players from the three clubs for the week)
The first cards will be available on Monday, June 19, at 8 pm on Binance’s NFT marketplace. Among them will be the reigning European champions, Stade Rochelais, Oyonnax, the current PRO D2 champions, and the New England Free Jacks, who are currently leading the Eastern Conference in the United States. In this first release, the available unique cards will be:
- Stade Rochelais: Grégory Alldritt, Antoine Hastoy and Jonathan Danty
- Oyonnax: Charlie Cassang and Aurélien Callandret
- New England Free Jacks: Paula Balekana and Mills Sanerivi
The next release will arrive during the week of June 19, after the TOP14 final. The adventure will continue with Antoine Dupont, the ambassador of Oval3, and Stade Toulousain, the most decorated club in Europe, the Utah Warriors with Paul Lasike as the American ambassador of Oval3, and Mont de Marsan, who reached the semifinals this season in PRO D2. Several unique cards will be present:
- Stade Toulousain: Antoine Dupont, Thomas Ramos and Romain Ntamack
- Mont de Marsan: Alexandre de Nardi and Wame Naituvi
- Utah Warriors: Franco van den Berg and Zion Going
The NFT card collection of Oval3
Similar to Sorare and other fantasy leagues, the cards represent players and provide all the relevant information about them. Each card features the player’s name, first name, age, nationality, club, position and photo. The cards have a beautiful design and come in five levels of rarity: common, limited, rare, super rare and unique.
In this list, you will only find the common cards, which are available in unlimited quantities to support the free-to-play aspect. The other types of cards will be available in limited quantities, and the number of prints will depend on their rarity level. For example, unique cards will have only one copy available, while super rare cards will be limited to five copies.
Oval3’s cards are NFTs created on the Polygon blockchain, and their rarity level allows access to specific competitions. The rarer the card, the higher the rewards in the competition. Additionally, the rarity provides a percentage of bonus points during various competitions.
