WarnerMedia, which is in charge of many sports broadcasts including TBS, TNT and TruTV, revealed the launch of “Blocklete Games,” an innovative platform that allows participants to collect, train and trade digital athletes and earn cash prizes.
The company used non-fungible tokens or NFTs which stand out from other digital assets as each token is verifiably unique.
Turner Sports revealed the name of the first game as Blocklete Golf which focuses on training golfers.
Trained golfers can then be sold or traded through the dedicated open marketplace platform developed for the game.
Turner Sports VP of business operations and strategy Yang Adija had this to say:
“With Blocklete Games, we see a transformational opportunity to give fans more control over the video gaming experience by reversing the conventional power dynamic between player and publisher.
Our service leverages the blockchain such that anyone can play personalised sports games with their friends, with the potential to also generate a return on their investment in the game.”
WarnerMedia’s subsidiary has teamed up with BitPay, to allow Bitcoin purchases for Blocklete collectibles, as well as XRP, ETH and BCH. Blockchain gaming is becoming increasingly popular.
In fact, FunFair Technologies has developed its own dedicated casino software which enables the company to build unique collection of games.
