Sorare Embraces Zero-Knowledge Proof As Scaling Solution

Sorare Embraces Zero-Knowledge Proof As Scaling Solution

Fantasy football game Sorare will implement StarkWare's zero-knowledge proof technology as their scaling solution of choice. The collectible card game currently exists on Ethereum mainnet, and this has obviously become a problem. They see the ideal solution in StarkWare's zk-rollups.

In an extensive blog post Sorare explained their reasoning. Ultimately they didn't want to sacrifice the security and decentralization Ethereum offers. Any other sidechain would be run by a company, like for example Polygon. However, the technical solution by StarkWare taps right into the Ethereum mainnet.

The announcement makes very clear that they are already very close to launching the scaling solution. Right now Sorare communicated that the new infrastructure will be live by the end of July 2021, so after UEFA Euro 2020.

Football fans and gamers active on Sorare, will benefit from the transition in different ways. Transactions will be instant, as the technology by StarkWare can take on 3,000 transactions per second. This mean that nobody has to wonder where their cards are. In addition Sorare works with Ramp Network, to create a fiat on-ramp with near instant transactions without extra costs. In addition they will add a stablecoin to the platform, to make things better understandable for no-crypto natives.

Future benefits of zk-rollups

Sure, zk-rollups will give a much better user experience. In addition it will save Sorare an insane amount on money. Keep in mind that they've been covering all the transaction fees for more than a year. We're talking about millions of dollars in fees. In the past 30 days they've had 61 thousand transactions according to data from DappRadar, which probably cost at least $610,000. So, gas fees drop big time.

This also means that Sorare will be able to invest in more reward opportunities. In the blog post they mentioned 'new collectibles', which could for example be NFT trophies for certain in-game tournaments.

How to play Sorare

You can play Sorare for free, but that takes away lots of the excitement to be fair. You need to purchase collectible player cards, and the players on these cards will become your team. Each game week you select the players, each represented by an NFT card, of which you think they will perform best.

For every game week managers will need to select a team from the player card collection. They will need one goalkeeper, one defender, one midfielder, one attacker and an extra field player. Players earn points based on the real-life performance of those players. Therefore players that play regularly, are active in winning team, hardly make mistakes, and score a lot of goals, are generally valuable. Each card can only be used once during a game week, but if you have enough cards you can join in multiple leagues.

If you make enough points, you will earn 0.01 or 0.02 ETH. Are you among the best? Then you will receive a free card, which are much more valuable. Learn more on how to play and earn in Sorare here, or sign up for the game here.

What is Sorare?

Sorare is a fantasy football game powered by blockchain technology. The project also has support from game publisher Ubisoft through the company’s entrepreneurs lab. The fantasy football game is enjoying lots of hype in recent months. Consistently the game is among the most popular applications on the Ethereum blockchain. In addition the company received a four million dollar investment to push the game forward, while signing FC Barcelona star Pique as a spokesperson and adding Real Madrid to the game.

Blockchain technology introduces actual scarcity to digital cards, so these cards have a limited supply. Players can use the cards they’ve bought to create a fantasy team. Each card represents a real player. Based on the performance of that player on the actual pitch, the card holders will earn points. Every week the teams with the most points will earn new cards as a reward. The cheapest cards generally sell for a couple of dollars, while the most wanted ones go for well over a thousand dollars a piece. Join the game!
