A sports-based NFT ecosystem, UFF, in a recent partnership with Cudos is seeking to place the entire sports world into the metaverse. Built on the Zilliqa blockchain—a powerful, low-cost, and highly scalable network—UFF aims at putting the sports world—the past, present, and future—onto the potentially replete blockchain technology as virtual assets.
With non-fungible tokens [NFTs], the budding crypto trend experiencing an exponential increase in interest and popularity, thanks to the influx of projects and celebrities into the billion-dollar market, UFF will try to provide an ecosystem for athletes to kickstart a digital career based on virtual versions of themselves.
Sauntering an untraversed path, UFF seeks to give athletes revenue-generating schemes like crypto financing, fantasy sports, gaming, and a plethora of metaverse opportunities. These features, according to a recent press release, will enable fans to interact and invest in some of their favorite athletes within the ecosystem now and in the years to come.
That's not all, UFF will allow users to interact with athletes that have passed away, giving these fans good memories of their once beloved athletes. Introducing a purchase facet, fans can operate sports franchises that function much like in the real world. Speaking to reporters about this project, the UFF team believes their partnership with Zilliqa, a growing list of famous athletes, and the Cudos team will make them one of the greatest forces in the booming sports industry.
