In order to grow further, the company raised 2 million euros in a financing round recently supported by the investment fund Play Ventures. It is advised by specialized companies in the industry such as Ath21 and Polygon, and highly regarded international funds such as Play Ventures, Defiance Capital, Parafi Capital, DAO Maker, Kyros Ventures and Metrix Capital have also entered the market. Defiance Capital and Parafi Capital are two of the most important crypto specialty funds in the world.
MetaSoccer is aimed at both play-to-earn players and soccer fans to enter the new Metaverse, a term that refers to the virtual world that runs parallel to the real one in which you interact with other users via digital devices to interact. The ultimate goal of the Spanish startup, as its co-founder and COO Patxi Barrios explains: “is to create a new generation of digital native football players and clubs that will achieve ratings similar to those of the professional football leagues in the years to come. Ultimately, we strive for the next Messi to be born in the metaverse and to play on a platform like ours. ”
The first step is to allocate the funds received to the dual purpose that the company has set for 2022: on the one hand, the development and implementation of the video game with the hiring of new profiles specialized in the development of Golang technologies and onchain programming Solidity. On the other hand, marketing measures are being intensified in order to give the project more visibility. This includes digital and soccer content advisors.
The project is supported by streamers and youtubers like Willy Rex, Reven and Kmanus88, who have millions of followers. According to Kmanus 88 himself, âMetaSoccer has three important points to be the next milestone in the world of blockchain gaming: It is the first soccer metaverse with unique properties, it has a new economic model based on a token binding curve , which gives stability to the game, token and as a studio they have over 6 years of experience developing video games. ”
Three sectors with a total volume of $ 400 billion
MetaSoccer is part of a new sector that is in full swing combining blockchain technology, decentralized finance, sports betting and football.
MetaSoccer’s potential audience reaches 40% of the planet’s residents. That’s because 3.1 billion people play video games. In addition, 3.5 billion people in over 200 countries are football fans. In addition, 1.6 billion people bet on sports.
This is part of the blockchain sector and NFT technologies, another market that is still in its early stages. As a result, MetaSoccer targets three sectors with sales of $ 400 billion.
A universe based on the MetaSoccer token: buying and selling assets in the metaverse
MetaSoccer users own their assets on the gaming platform (teams, stadiums, players, etc.) and transactions are carried out using the MetaSoccer Universe (MSU) token.
They have the opportunity to create and lead their own teams and generate income while playing the game. It is very similar to real-life clubs in that users can generate income from their assets, from renting out their stadiums, or from selling players. Another way for the user to raise funds is to sponsor their club.
In addition, managers can also train their players to improve and try to get their maximum performance. At the same time, players age and eventually withdraw.
Currently, MetaSoccer has sold 72 million MSU in a private presale and 18 million in a public presale. The public sale of his token will take place on December 7th via the DAO Maker platform. In addition, the NFT drop sale will take place on December 25th on the MetaSoccer marketplace.
Metassoccer is an alternative football universe to earn based primarily on the Blockchain. The video game was born with the intention of being the starting point of a new paradigm in the football ecosystem, decentralized and in many ways an active part of it. This universe is a combination of $ 3 billion markets with global impact: video games, soccer, and sports betting, all brought together by Blockchain and NFT technologies. Metassoccer is part of a new generation of video games where users can earn cryptocurrency through their contributions to the ecosystem.
