NFT Sports Platform Sorare Gets Regulatory Green Flag Ahead of FIFA World Cup

 

Sorare is a blockchain-based fantasy game where players buy, sell, trade, and manage a virtual team with digital player cards in the form of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). In Sep 2021, Sorare raised $680 million in a Series B funding round led by SoftBank’s vision fund team. The latest valuation of the company is $4.3 billion.

 

Sorare will no longer be classified as a gambling

The French startup was in a battle with the French National Gambling Authority (ANJ), which believed that the NFT fantasy game should be classified as gambling. Sorare explained that the players never lose their cards (NFTs), so it should not be classified as a gambling platform.

 

According to The Big Whale report, Sorare has made peace with ANJ; both parties have come up with a solution. This is a big win for Sorare because it can get away with certain financial limitations that gambling platforms have to follow under regulatory rules.

 

We have found a provisional solution with the French National Gambling Authority (ANJ) that satisfies both parties.
