The French National Rugby League has ventured boldly into the NFT space with its new Web3 platform, Legendary Plays. As a result, bringing a hearty dose of rugby to the blockchain via the Tezos network.
Legendary Plays brands itself as “rugby like never before” ecosystem. On which, fans can support their favorite club by collecting their favorite snippets of exciting gameplay. Dubbed ‘plays’, users can then accumulate boosters to increase rarity levels, as well as collect highlights of their fan life. In addition, players can win exclusive NFT ‘Plays’ featuring a video of legendary moments from Top14 or ProD2 Rugby match.
What happens when someone purchases a Legendary Play?
A Play NFT represents the key to accessing the Legendary Plays platform benefits. Once someone purchases a play, they become the owner of the limited-edition copy of that particular in-game action. Each play has a different rarity level depending on the number of stars it displays.
To give a wider audience the chance to start their collection and access the platform, Legendary Plays has set free Universal Plays (1-star rarity level) for each series. Consequently, only Plays that are of 2 stars or higher register on the Tezos blockchain. While, 2.5% of each purchase goes toward financing charitable projects that have a positive impact on communities.
