The Time of the NFT

The non-fungible token or NFT is catching on in today’s business world. Of course, a lot of that appeal comes from the consumer side as well.

People are getting excited about these new kinds of digital assets and how they relate to what innovators have done with the blockchain.

We are part of that, as you can see by looking at new awards and recognitions in this type of digital environment!

B2B Plug-and-Play

Our digital engagement tools are perfect for companies that want to leverage the appeal of digital marketing and engagement in the sports world.

Basically speaking, people and companies are getting on board with the idea of taking technology to the next level. That may have started with things like NFTs, where athletes and celebrities made their own tokens, but now there’s also the promise of the metaverse, that is due to change business in a big way. 

By keeping on top of all of this, Fanisko has been able to set up services unlike anything that sports merchandising and ad world has seen before: initiatives that help to usher in the new era of the NFT and of the metaverse as well. 

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

Marketers and people in all kinds of industries are integrating both augmented reality and virtual reality in products and services.

You can see this in play with the Oculus headset, but it goes far beyond that. Basically, the AR and VR in the metaverse can be any technology that helps to accomplish the result: a virtual “place” populated with users that are represented by proxy in the digital worlds that are created. 

In a general sense, we’re moving toward the metaverse model – that’s partly why Facebook changed its name – and in the future, we’re likely to have virtual meeting halls in which we are represented by avatars that we purchase as NFTs.

Fanisko has gotten in on the ground floor of this for digital sports advertising. Our founders are happy to be early adopters of NFT and AR/VR technologies. Take a look at the website for more on how we are innovating in our field! We are happy to be in the fast lane when it comes to integrating new technologies into our workflows and how we do things. Get connected with a firm that knows where things are going in terms of 21st century IT. It might boost your sports B2B business by quite a lot!

 Fanisko Metaverse — The Panchia Space

You are one of the billions of sports fans on our planet earth.  Our earth orbits the sun in the solar system.  The sun is one star among the billions in the milky way galaxy.  Our milky way galaxy is one among the billions of galaxies in our universe. You are unique in the Universe!

Our Metaverse story happens in The PANCHIA Space, an imaginary spiral galaxy that is 5 million light years away from earth. Our explorers have discovered planets in that galaxy where inhabitants renounced violence after 1000’s years of bloodshed and loss of lives to play a game of rigid wood and mighty ball, that we call “Baseball” on Earth. 

The Panchia is the brightest external space visible from the earth’s southern hemisphere. In a dark sky, it’s seen as a smudge of distant light bigger than a full moon.

The multiple planets discovered in the Panchia Space are uniquely made up of Water, Fire, Thunder, Acid, and Grass. Aside from these, explorers have also identified one common resource called Zoharium present on the planets in the Panchia Space. The inhabitants leverage Zoharium as a catalyst to power their abilities. But Zoharium’s usage is limited and controlled by the royal lineage. However, over the years the planet’s inhabitants have developed special skills and abilities to survive and adapt to the changing geopolitical and natural environment. 

 In the Panchia Space, interplanetary travel happens through Zaaloop – a teleporting pathway that connects all the worlds. The control of Zaaloop has led to great wars and bloodshed in the history of the Panchia Space. As civilization progressed, the planet’s elders renounced violence and armed struggle in favor of the sport of Baseball to resolve the control of Zaaloop and supreme authority of the six worlds.  The elders also agreed to create an elite team called Vothrak Khalasar which consists of the finest, mightiest, ferocious and herculean warriors from all the planets to manage  Zaaloop and protect their worlds from external threats and invasion. 

This has helped restore peace and happiness in all the worlds in the Panchia Space and inhabitants have embraced sports as a matter of pride in their everyday lives. Ever since the Baseball championship is played every year with a lot of fanfare and the winner gets honored at the Fanisko Coliseum, the biggest edifice in all of the Panchia Space. 

Fanisko Metaverse — An Overview

Over the past year, the term Metaverse has gained significant traction with many definitions around immersive virtual experiences, a decentralized community with a creator economy of its own supported by the Blockchain infrastructure collectively called Web3.0. Metaverse is powered by AR, VR, and 3D technologies via content, services, gaming, etc., to merge the physical and virtual worlds. Metaverse is the successor to the mobile internet era as emerging technologies continue to push our traditional notions beyond borders with new inventive use cases across all sectors. Sports has always been a great industry to adopt innovative technologies and Metaverse seems to be the next logical step in connecting fans digitally to elevate fan engagement to a new level of creativity.

Fanisko is a sports metaverse company that uses unique fan interaction technologies to assist sports fans and organizations engage and generating additional premium income. We have extensive experience in Digital Transformation, Data Analytics, and Fan Engagement. We provide next-generation fans with Social AR, Web gamification, and App fan interaction tools. Our platform assists sports organizations in engaging, retaining, and monetizing their fan base. We have collaborated with a number of major sports organizations to provide fans with immersive experiences. We have engaged millions of fans globally and assisted our partners in growing their fan bases.

Sports has been a unifying connection for many people, including us, the founders of Fanisko. However, sports fans have been just spectators with little access to the sports digital economy. Fans may gain greatly from the booming digital economy in sports by participating in Metaverse and NFT games. Fanisko will enable ordinary sports fans to monetize their sports passion and devotion across all sports and regions.

The Fanisko Metaverse league attempts to bring together Baseball games and players from multiple Fanisko-created worlds on a single field. This is our first Metaverse game, and we are including the best features and components of blockchain technology. Fanisko Metaverse League is more than a game; it’s a portal to an exclusive baseball player with extraordinary abilities from all over the world, and with our very own “Metaverse,” members of the community will be able to purchase the listed NFTs and compete in numerous top leagues.

Our web3 solutions enable fans to buy baseball NFTs from our own marketplace (coming soon) and use them in Metaverse games to compete and earn rewards. Many more sports NFTs and Metaverse games will be available in the future. We now have a plan and launch schedule in place for three distinct blockchain games over the next several months, in which fans will be able to manage the whole franchise and acquire rare players, properties, and components. 

Stay tuned to hear more from us! Let’s meet in the Metaverse! 

Fanisko Metaverse Whitepaper

What is Fanisko Metaverse gaming?

The Fanisko Metaverse League combines baseball games and players from several worlds together on a single field, integrating the greatest characteristics and components of blockchain technology and NFTs.

Fanisko Metaverse League is not just a game, but rather a doorway to an exclusive baseball player community from across the universe.

We are establishing our very own “Metaverse,” where members of the community will be able to buy the listed NFTs and participate in several top leagues, and compete against the greatest in the business throughout time.

Fanisko Metaverse League presently has a strategy and launch timeline for three unique blockchain games over the next several months. Fans will have the opportunity to control the whole franchise or league and purchase uncommon items and components.

Three Fundamental Elements

Grow While Gaming

Each game we release will be built on the previous one to produce a diverse range of amazing gameplay structures and distinctive characters that progress on a continuous basis to different levels and talents.

Own and Gain
With each game, your NFT points and value will increase making you an elite game player and a super fan

Get to say
The more powerful you get, the more authority you have over the games and gameplay; you may lend your player to others and gain control over other players.

Our Perception

We feel that the future of online gaming may be summarized as follows:

1- NFT
2- 2D Metaverse
3- XR Metaverse

So, we take the above components and combine them with the different sports to give the user the “Metaverse Madness”. The unique game characters will be adored and appreciated all over the world.

Why us & Why now & Why NFT

We have built a successful fan engagement sports company and have worked with esteemed sports brands such as Sportradar, Dodgers Nation, FIDE, Tech Mahindra, and others. With a strong Web 2.0 foundation built, we are moving towards building a robust metaverse (Web 3.0) platform that will unify gaming, AR/VR, Blockchain, Crypto, and NFT to bring a unique experience to fans so it drives multiple revenue streams for fans, sports organizations, sponsor brands, and the company.

Blockchain games powered by NFTs have grown exponentially in recent years, pushed by NFT proliferation. In recent months, in-game NFTs have generated billions of dollars in transactions. NFT games allow gamers to earn money as they play. The play and earn genre is one of the most significant driving forces behind NFT games, with gamers making P2E games their full-time vocation. The P2E concept in blockchain gaming is simple. Players must play the game and complete game mechanics or particular tasks to be awarded. These are frequently NFTs or tokens. Users may collect these digital things and then trade or sell them in virtual marketplaces found within the game. While playing their favorite games, players may win rewards. However, obtaining rewards when playing NFT games is not as simple as many people imagine. To make the most of their playing time, gamers must first select the appropriate game and then plan their playtime.

Whitepaper

As this is the beginning of Fanisko’s Metaverse & NFT adventure, this whitepaper will develop over time as we progress. In truth, this should be labeled a “luminous” document, but our experts disapproved, so it will remain a “Whitepaper.” This Whitepaper explains where we currently stand on the NFT and Metaverse platform development and the corresponding timelines. This Whitepaper also gives a glimpse of our roadmap and what’s in store for our community of die-hard fans.

Overview

Our stance with Fanisko’s NFTs is that the fans should be able to own NFT assets that will carry value. Our NFTs will be used in Fanisko Metaverse League thereby providing our fans an avenue to earn. This also gives our community additional peace of mind in knowing that the time they spend playing games may be turned into an investment as their playable assets improve in value once they start playing the game;. These assets can then be exchanged or sold on Fanisko’s marketplace.

This is the first ever NFT baseball game played in the metaverse between powerful alien species. They play to demonstrate the strength and might of their planets.

Game structureOverview

Fanisko has examined the market, investigated gaming options, and put together three games as a part of the initial rollout and; as confirmed by prominent gaming experts.

Effectively manage your team.

You may also buy and design your own squad. The entire team composition will be twenty-six, with nine being deployed in the game to evaluate their abilities.

You will compete in regular games with your NFT squad. Rotate your team to avoid burnout and injuries within your club.

Conquer the world with your own Baseball Club.

Game 3:

The new game will be launched on the basis of AR, VR, and AR glass technologies

Technology description

The newest technology and Fanisko’s game industry experience will be employed in the process of executing the proposed concept and the “Fanisko Metaverse League” project as a whole. This symbiotic relationship of the most recent industry innovations enables the creation of an easy-to-access gaming product that will be available to everyone in every part of the world.

Our Economy and Structure

We researched several economic models and put the best components into Fanisko’s NFT to establish a stable economic environment.
The system is also designed in such a manner that any fan who invests time in the game can make money.

FaniskoLong-term goal:

Our initial focus will be on completing the NFT structure and successfully launching the first three games. After those games are out for the fans and established, new characters, stages, maps, and game types will be added on a regular basis.

We think that with the aid of our community, the “Fanisko Metaverse League” can become a mainstay of the online gaming world, where users can play a variety of games, earn money, meet friends, and engage with a community of like-minded gamers in Metaverse.

Our Vision: To be the premier sports metaverse company that allows regular fans to monetize their sports passion and loyalty in every sport and across all geographies

How To Collect Data from Fans of Your Sports Team

The main goal of any sports team owner is to boost fan engagement. Most sports team managers and owners realize that increasing fan engagement is a great way to enhance profitability. Instead of relying on gut feelings to find new ways to connect with your fans, you need to realize the importance of gathering data. 

The more you know about who your fans are and what they want, the easier it will be to improve engagement levels. Are you looking for effective ways to gather data from the fans of your sports team? If so, here are some things you need to consider. 

Social Media Provides Lots of Useful Information

Around 200 million Americans classify themselves as sports fans. The average sports fan looks for opportunities to connect with their favorite teams. One of the best venues to use to connect with fans of your sports team is social media. Using platforms like Instagram and Twitter to keep your fans informed and engaged can benefit your team greatly. 

Monitoring the comments on the posts made on your team’s social media page can help you collect lots of useful data. These comments can help you pinpoint problems with your current marketing strategy. You also need to collect data from the people that visit your team’s website. 

Data regarding where a person lives and how they found your team’s website is crucial. By collecting this type of data, you can develop a profile of who the typical fan is and what they want. 

Get Fans To Sign Up for Game Day Events

Hosting special events for fans of your sports team is crucial when trying to keep them engaged. Team-sponsored tailgating events and fan sweepstakes are just a few of the things you should be hosting. Not only can you increase engagement with these events, you can also collect data from your loyal fanbase. Requiring fans to sign up for these events online is a good idea. 

Most fans will be willing to give you their email addresses and phone numbers to get a ticket to a team-sponsored event. Using this information in your future marketing campaigns can help them yield much better results. 

Use Team Mobile Apps To Collect Data

Modern consumers love feeling like they are connected to the sports teams they follow. While having a social media presence can help you stay connected to fans, you will have to do more to stay fresh in the minds of your audience. This is why investing in a team app that features gamification elements is such a wise move. A great app will help you retain the attention of your fanbase, even during the offseason. 

Collecting data with the help of your mobile app is also a good idea. This data will help you optimize your team app. You can also use the data to send more personalized communications to users of the app.  

By collecting the right data, you can keep your fans loyal and engaged.
