Oslo, 8 February 2022 – Fact Revolution has sealed a spot to be one of the first esports teams to launch team non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on Yesports, the World's First and only Web3 Esports Engagement Platform (W3EP). Yesports offers a Web3 white glove service for esports teams that includes NFT design and go-to-market strategy, as well as an NFT marketplace for teams and fans to engage with each other. The platform’s long term vision is to deliver an unrivaled esports-centric social portal through which fans can participate in the emerging metaverse.
Seeking to onboard millions of esports enthusiasts to Web3, Yesports is designed to encourage fan participation through greater engagement with Esports teams and allow tangible ownership of valuable and rare utility-first esports assets.
“Being a part of the Yesports launch is something we are very proud of. The platform will help us connect with our fans more easily, and do more of the fun stuff such as giveaways. We have always wanted to use blockchain technology to redefine how we engage with our fans and Yesports will help us do just that,” said Fact Revolution CEO, Simen Kjellevold Nygård.
The marketplace, built with a grant from Polygon Studios, creates a new, highly curated and focused venue for teams to release unique generative NFT packs or one-of-a-kind NFT collectibles on dedicated virtual team storefronts. Users can also expect to enjoy first access rights to exclusive NFT drops, multi-asset staking rewards as well as governance and voting rights by holding the YESP token, which will power the marketplace. Fans will also be able to buy, sell and trade various esports-focused NFTs all in one place.
“With our partnerships, Yesports becomes the world’s largest esports-focused NFT marketplace with over 16.5 million fans from the get-go and represents the beginning of a new generation in esports fan engagement - one that takes place in Web 3.0. We are excited to deliver real-world utility into the NFTs themselves and give them a multitude of functionalities well beyond just a beautiful collector’s item,“ said Sebastian Quinn, CEO of Yesports.
Some examples of the benefits that Fact Revolution NFT holders could enjoy include priority access to signed/custom team jerseys, free merchandise and peripheral goods, and whitelist spots for future NFT drops. Fact Revolution fans can also look forward to potentially earning a VIP role on the team Discord channel once it is launched.
To commemorate the partnership, Yesports will be releasing Partnership NFT Collectible giveaways this week, which unlock special fan access and perks for its holder. These NFT Collectibles are just a taste/teaser of what’s to come for when the Yesports marketplace launches with the exclusive drops. For more information and updates, follow Yesports here.
