FC Barcelona, an outstanding Spanish club in European football, collaborates with Ownix to unleash its own NFT assortment. Ownix is a digital auction house as well as the most dynamic NFT platform of the digital era.
This digital token encapsulates the Club’s 122-year history, which is rich in incredible detail. Furthermore, FC Barcelona fans will be able to share and own the Club’s joyful account. Fans can purchase the NFTs through a digital auction house. This launch will take place on November 24 using the platform’s native ERC-20 token ONX.
“WE ARE OPENING OUR COLLECTION TO ALL BARCELONA FANS AND EVERYONE AROUND THE WORLD. WE DON’T LIMIT IT TO JUST THE FAN BASE.”Reported a club representative.
The Ownix Blockchain Technology
Ownix makes use of an exciting blockchain technology that changes the way people truly own things. Creators can use the blockchain to value their work and build stronger connections with their supporters.
The Ethereum platform supports the inclusion of short clips and still images from pivotal moments in the Club’s history. They will capture the 75 domestic wins and 20 European and worldwide titles since 1899 in each of the NFTs.
NFTs In The Sports Domain
Over the last 2 years, the fame of NFTs has skyrocketed within the sporting domain. Investors and backers are pumping in a lot of money into the fledgling market. This year, the trading NFTs volumes are beyond $170 Million, and it is projected that the worth can double up. The NFTs are a remunerative way to raise funds. They are also an excellent way for engaging the fans. NFTs use blockchain technology and have a digital integrity license that cannot be altered. This allows for safe and trustworthy certification and auditability.
Fc Barcelona is not the first sports club to venture into the platform. The NBA already has its NFTs in the marketplace. Sorare, Dapper Labs, and Socio are among the NFT market platforms that have collaborated with mega sports titans, league masters, and athletes.
For example, the Ethereum-based NFT platform Sorare recently signed an agreement with La Liga, the main Spanish soccer subsidiary. The collaboration aims to release digital cards for players.
FC Barcelona and Ownix Leaders’ Reviews on The Collaboration
Fc Barcelona’s president, Joan Laporta, states,
“Barça has a very large fanbase around the world and is leading the way in the digital domain with over 400 million followers in social networks. Given this scenario, the Club is constantly looking for new ways to connect with its fans, and we believe that creating these NFTs is a unique opportunity to continue growing and consolidating the Barça brand by bringing unique moments that have made Barça fans dream and FC Barcelona a well-known club on every level.”
The CEO of Ownix, Guy Elhanani, in a statement, says,
“As NFTs surge, we thought it is important to give those collectors who are Barça fans an opportunity to own a piece of their Club’s history. This new and exciting asset class allows collectors to own things that weren’t possible to own before, and we’re thrilled to offer sports fans an opportunity to spearhead the movement. Our Mission is to bring customers to purchase NFTs, not because they are marketable, but for the pleasure and pride of owning them.”
When questioned about his thoughts on the receptiveness of Barca fans to the digital tokens, Elhanani articulated utter optimism. He said that he sees this as a step to foster the connection between the team and the fans; Joan Laporta also shares the same notion.
