Everyone has played fantasy football, trying to make a team that will help you win the virtual season. Fantasy sports can be played with almost any sport, football, baseball, basketball, and many others.
Fantasy Sports are online games where users can put together a team of individual players. Players earn points based on their real-time performances and real-time statistics. The better that players on your fantasy team perform, the more points they accumulate over the season.
Understanding Fantasy Sports
Fantasy sports is an internet-based game where individuals use their knowledge of a sport and the players of the sport to create a virtual team. Players can create leagues and compete with each other; the game uses real-time statistics and real-time performances to award points to the team players. The team with the most points wins.
Fantasy Sports also gives players the opportunity to take players from any team, put them in one team, play together, and compete against other teams. TradeStars takes Fantasy Sports’ concept and takes it a step further, adding an exciting twist to it.
What Is TradeStars?
TradeStars takes the concept of Fantasy Sports and adds a new twist to it. TradeStars is a Fantasy Stocks Trading Platform powered by the Ethereum and Matic Layer 2 blockchain. Players can trade and monetize digital assets and leverage their knowledge of the game and the sport. Tokens represent the player’s statistics, and the value of the tokens goes higher or lower based on the player’s performance in the game and over the course of the season.
TradeStars is creating a Fantasy Sports Stock Exchange similar to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and NASDAQ, enabling users to make a portfolio of fantasy stocks. TradeStars has over 30,000 registered users, and this number is expected to grow significantly.
How Does The Platform Work And What Are Fantasy Stocks
TradeStars is powered by the Ethereum and Matic-2 blockchain. It combines blockchain technology and fantasy sports, enabling players to leverage their knowledge. The digital assets that represent player statistics can be monetized, with the value of these digital assets influenced by players’ performance in games and over the season.
There is no fee involved if you want to join TradeStars; however, to purchase player stocks, you will need liquidity. TradeStars will operate like the NYSE or NASDAQ, with player performances and statistics will be tokenized and represented by an NFT.
Since TradeStars acts as a Fantasy Stocks Sports Market, users can create their athletes’ portfolios and manage them. Any player’s stock price would depend on the player’s performance and how many users are buying or selling that particular player stock. TradeStars launched its platform in January 2020 and currently has over 30,000 registered users.
TradeStars also announced its governance token, the TSX token, 10% of which would be released to users on the platform.
