KSports Lab (KSL), the developer of KS Football, a blockchain-based digital card collectible game for football (soccer) fans, today announced their collaboration with blockchain platform ProximaX.
Under this collaboration, KS Football which was originally built on the NEM blockchain, will be migrating their solution to the ProximaX Sirius platform which is developed on top of the Sirius Catapult blockchain, a second iteration of the original NEM blockchain. At the same time, XPX, the native token of the ProximaX blockchain ecosystem will be added in KS Football’s games.
“KSL’s use of blockchain technology is certainly revolutionizing the collectible cards gaming experience. We are confident that with their vision and the use of our ProximaX solution stack, they will ultimately be a leader in this industry and we are excited to be part of this journey. ProximaX will be fully committed to making this happen.”
– Founder and CEO of ProximaX, Lon Wong
On KS Football, players are invited to build a portfolio of digital illustrated sports cards that are loaded onto the blockchain as tokenized contracts. Each card is a unique illustration inspired by a team or player of major football leagues.
Game players earn rewards from the performance of card counterparts during the football season. Cards can be acquired through weekly auctions, trading, and giveaway sessions.
In addition, players can challenge each other in battles based on a card counterpart’s live games. During battles, players can steal opponent card tokens and earn points to rank on the leaderboard while receiving fun and collector rewards.
The platform enables football fans to become “shareholders” of a card linked to their favorite team while earning part of the rewards based on the team’s performance. KS Football also will provide a marketplace to trade card tokens.
The nature of card collecting hobby places a high priority on the authenticity and intrinsic value that comes with each card.
With KS Football’s first-mover effort, the original artwork inspired by a club or player will be digitally and immutably linked to one single contract on the blockchain. Each card is therefore uniquely preserved and fetches a premium.
“XPX will be integrated as a major currency in the game, alongside BTC, ETH, BNB, and fiat currency, as we are confident about the rapid growth of the ProximaX community. I believe that ProximaX can be used in the game industry to provide solutions that platforms like Ethereum hitherto are not able to offer. This collaboration is the first of many to come and we are already looking at building more solutions together for games and e-sport.”
