At a time when Tezos is being praised as the centre for NFTs, we’re thrilled to announce CricTez, a first-of-its-kind Sports Collectible platform on the Tezos ecosystem.
The market for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) blew up this year to a whopping $2.5 billion. Last year the same NFT market stood at $13.7 million (first half of 2020). This accounts to a ≈18,000% mammoth increase over the past year.
CricTez is a non-fungible token(NFT) sports platform primarily focused on cricket. The platform’s primary notion is the representation of cricket players as NFTs. These NFTs are wrapped as ‘cards’ or ‘collectibles’ with their unique attributes and the card score. These cards are divided into three tiers based on their rarity: standard, rare, and epic. They can be collected through drops where newly minted cards by the platform are auctioned or collected through the marketplace where other collectors place their owned cards on sale. In addition, CricTez shall host fantasy matches where collectors can engage in an enjoyable game using their owned cards.
Every card is a non-fungible token stored on IPFS and secured by the Tezos blockchain. The card features the original artwork of a cricket player and its unique characteristics. Every card features a card number that makes it unique throughout the platform. Take a look at the above represented epic card stored over IPFS here.
