The ultimate NFT platform for all sports fans: FANZONE gives you the opportunity to digitally own your stars and get access to exclusive content/experiences. Collect your favorite athletes and trade them with countless other fans to complete your collection.
What are NFTs?
NFTs become much easier to understand once you break down the term. “NFT” stands for “non-fungible token.” When something is “non-fungible,” it means it is unique. A “token,” meanwhile, is a digital certificate of authenticity. An NFT, therefore, proves your ownership of an asset that cannot be replicated. When it comes to collectibles, there is simply no higher standard of security and authenticity.
What’s the Blockchain?
A blockchain is a technical solution for managing data in a distributed infrastructure without a central instance in a traceable and tamper-proof manner by consensus (in agreement). With blockchain technology, it is possible to verify transactions – for example, in payment transactions with cryptocurrencies – in a trustworthy and transparent manner without a central instance.
Our Eco-NFTs consume 99.9% less energy on ETH 2.0 and proof-of-stake blockchains than other NFTs on Ethereum. Our motto is “We believe in the power and positive impact of fans”. That’s why we are currently planting a tree for every complete signup on Trees For The Future.
All active FANZONE users will soon receive a free and public on-chain Universal Profile (ERC725) to share their NFT collections. Through this Universal Profile, all Fanzone NFTs will be displayed publicly for other users to see. All NFTs will also be connected to the Universal Profiles of their athletes and teams.
Advantages of FANZONE
FANZONE gives you the opportunity to be involved in the career of your favourite athletes and teams and get access to exclusive content and experiences. Collect your stars and trade their digital cards with thousands of other sports enthusiasts to complete your collections.
From beta to blockchain
FANZONE launched its beta apps for iOS, Android and on the web in 2021, allowing users to trade all digital cards within the community by using Fanzone Credits. Currently we are going live on the Polygon (Matic) blockchain. This will make FANZONE NFTs tradable on external marketplaces such as OpenSea and later also on the LUKSO Network. Example: OpenSea
Current GoLive on Polygon (Matic)
Blockchain was always in our mind at FANZONE, When we launched our beta apps for iOS, Android and on the web in 2021, allowing users to trade all digital cards within the community by using Fanzone Credits. Payments via in-App payment and on the web with crypto.
Currently we are in the process of deploying our first NFTs on the Polygon (Matic) blockchain with our advanced NFT implementation – see below. Then This will make FANZONE NFTs tradable on external marketplaces such as OpenSea.
Built with LUKSO
We are building and developing with LUKSO, as their vision is highly compatible with ours and the technology is advanced. The LUKSO blockchain is for a new digital economy and physical and digital consumer goods (more info in this Forbes’ interview). They will be public, permissionless and highly decentralized with tens of thousands of possible validator nodes. This guarantees a lifetime availability for all your assets on the Blockchain. It’s all based on ETH 2.0 technology like Casper, fully EVM compatible and open source.
Tech lead Fabian Vogelsteller had the right ideas as author of Web3.js, ERC20 standard, MIST and as Ethereum tech lead. Now LUKSO is once again proposing something even better: through the Universal Profile Standard, LSP1 and ERC725, the Blockchain can become a decentral social network, creating digital reputation without a central instance.
LUKSO is currently running it’s beta networks, so we are waiting for their Mainnet.
Our progressive blockchain development
With our ECO-NFTs, we make it easy to trade and share.
Advantages based on our NFT Ecosystem:
Our Universal Profiles are created by us for our users without any technical hurdles or knowledge of blockchain right from the FANZONE App. They are based on a standard originally called ERC725 and LUKSO LSP1-3. This way, many different decentral Apps and Pages can display your profile with all collectibles & data fully decentral.
This creates a fully decentralized social network: https://fanzone.cloud
Our NFTs are linked to the real entities, athletes, teams and leagues and their respective universal profiles – using the same technology for profiles the users are having.
Check out an NFT like https://fanzone.cloud/#/l14/asset/0x01a343d231058e7f1086163848eb3d189cd33275 and see the connected Creators.
Our NFTs are based on an ETH 2.0 Blockchain, saving more than 99% of energy compared to Ethereum. Our NFTs project is built for a high utility, run on a performant but energy efficient Blockchain. For us this means not using Proof-of-Work. Those use at least only 0.1% of the energy of current Ethereum Mainnet NFTs. This is at least 1000 times less, most likely 10 000 times.
Once our NFTs are on the main net, we will be able to offer our active users a non-custodian way to handle their Universal Profiles. This way they will be able to offer their NFTs (based on respective laws) on external marketplaces or use their NFTs in compatible applications as well.
Our platform also provides a meta-level gamification layer using leaderboards, special rewards for user achievements as well as an advanced progression system which will be introduced soon. Additionally there will be dedicated mini-games such as a penalty game and other gameplay mechanics such as fantasy sports challenges to give our users compelling utility for their NFTs.
And that users can anytime migrate from custodian to non-custodian by replacing the authorized private key in the Universal Profile. Without shifting the NFTs.
Advantages of our NFT 2.0 standard development together with LUKSO:
- Beside the ERC721 bckwards-compatibility our NFTs can contain further data about the athletes, teams and leagues, more pictures and videos referenced on decentral file storage (IPFS). This data ist stored in a ERC725Y key-value smart contract.
- Each NFT stores it’s unique data, including it’s mint (token) ID, scoring and optional additional ERC725Y smart contract.
- Upgradeable: Each NFT can be upgraded through various game modes and enhanced by any data.
Further advantages of our NFT 2.0 implementation:
Besides the already included batch transfer, there are also even more speeds to synchronize our NFTs through multicall and meta transactions.
If you read until here the details, have also the look into the standard proposal your self: https://github.com/lukso-network/LIPs/blob/draft/LSPs/LSP-8-IdentifiableDigitalAsset.md
As well as a implementation of ours in the wild: https://fanzone.cloud/#/L14/asset/0xfD44985983CCD5edf0561Ae214a779bA340aDCEB
Currently we are developing a built-in price and revenue share model within the NFTs for the secondary market. With this new functionality, a life-time revenue share can be distributed to all partners involved in issuing and distributing our NFTs. This way, each NFT can also be offered simultaneously on many marketplaces and external websites & blogs at the same time.
Once our NFTs are on the main net, we will be able to offer our active users a non-custodian way to handle their Universal Profiles. This way they will be able to offer their NFTs (based on respective laws) on external marketplaces.
Any marketplace on LUKSO compatible to the Digital Collectibles standard can be used.
Additionally, as we are adding the built-in price for NFTs, those can even be offered on websites and blogs, simply by embedding them through an Affiliate.js (like you know it from YouTube videos etc.).
This way, for a sale the athlete, team, league, Fanzone and even the embedding page will be able to get a very small revenue share.
An NFT can even be visible to be on sale on various marketplaces at the same time.
Universal Profiles – Connecting Fans with each other & their favourite stars
This creates a fully decentralized social network:
Every fan and every star, athlete, team and entity gets their free and on-chain public universal profile created within the FANZONE App. This is fully decentral and therefore available for a lifetime.
Our Universal Profiles are created by us for our users without any technical hurdles or knowledge of blockchain right from the FANZONE App. They are fully based on the Universal Profile standard by LUKSO, originally proposed as ERC725 and now evolved as LSP1 to 3.
