Mastercard Launches NFT UEFA Champions League Trivia Game
Payments giant Mastercard has launched its Web3-powered trivia competition for football fans. It rewards players for their UEFA Champions League knowledge and “will crown football’s top trivia buff,” said an announcement.
The trivia game will be part of a new platform, called pass to priceless, which “brings Mastercard’s Web3 assets into a unified space.”
Through his platform, players can collect Mastercard X UEFA Champions League-branded digital passes. The passes come in the form of NFTs.
This gives them the chance to win tickets to the Final at London’s Wembley Stadium.
The real-time football-focused quiz will be open throughout the UEFA tournament for Mastercard cardholders in France, Spain, Germany, the UK, Italy, the USA, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, and Argentina.
Each quiz will start 30 minutes before each UEFA Champions League round of Tuesday fixtures, starting on February 13 and ending on June 1.
Players will answer questions from the highest-scoring game to the year the first-ever Group Stage occurred.
Winners of each round will be rewarded with UEFA Champions League match tickets, thus climbing the leaderboard.
The person at the top of the leaderboard after the semi-final on April 30 will win the grand prize of tickets to the final at London’s Wembley Stadium.
Kresus Wallet Joins Sotheby’s Metaverse for NFT Management in One Place
Auction house Sotheby’s Metaverse arm has added the Web3 app Kresus as a supported digital wallet option. Per the announcement, collectors can now buy and store digital artworks through the app.
The addition of Kresus “enables the easiest way to store digital art for both collectors new to the digital artwork world and long-time NFT collectors who want a robust mobile-first Web3 wallet,” the press release said.
It added that Kresus has unique technology: the app allows users to recover assets even if they lose access to their email. It calls it “’goof-proof’ security.”
The tool, combined with total user control, is crucial for Sotheby’s ecosystem to provide digital collectors who seek a safe vault to store their high-end NFTs, Kresus said.
