Soccer star Gerard Piqué invests in Sorare’s blockchain game

Gerard Piqué believes in the future of blockchain gaming and invests in Ethereum Code scam. The blockchain-based fantasy soccer game grew rapidly in 2020 and was able to bring some top teams on board.

Together with the former Vice President of Coca Cola, Emmanuel Seugé, Gerard Piqué is investing three million euros in Sorare. In recent years, the soccer star has repeatedly appeared as an investor and in 2017 he had his own holding company Kosmos founded.

Most recently, Piqué expressed himself in a press release from Sorare, which BTC-Echo has received, about his investment:

I see huge potential in the sports gaming segment. In a digital world, fan attention is the most important currency. I look forward to helping Sorare build its partnerships with football leagues, clubs and players.

Piqué and Seugé are convinced that fans are looking for new ways to be able to cheer with their idols. Therefore, the two see a lot of potential in Sorare’s fantasy football game.

Some top teams are there – where is Piqué’s FC Barcelona?

In 2020, Sorare made NFT history. The sales volume of the cards grew by more than 1,000 percent on an annual basis and 80 clubs joined the platform. Mainly because of this, the emerging industry is getting more and more attention from investors such as Piqué and the former Vice President of Coca Cola.

The clubs that Sorare joined in 2020 include world-famous teams such as FC Bayern Munich , Inter Milan , Paris Saint-Germain and Bayer Leverkusen . Gerard Piqué’s FC Barcelona is still missing. From the press release, however, it emerges that more “champions” are to be added by the end of the year. It is still unclear which teams are meant by this.
