Gamers, teams, and content creators in the video game industry can now enjoy a dedicated marketplace that’ll allow them to create rare digital items for fans across the globe.
Ikonic will act as a full-service marketplace and NFT platform for esports and gaming collectibles that players and gamers can use to create their own NFTs.
The team at Ikonic were inspired by how the best gaming moments easily vanished, instead offering a platform for players to turn their unforgettable gameplay moments into profit.
The team said that by utilising today’s blockchain technology, “We can turn esports moments into digital collectables that will last for eternity. We have so much more than that on the roadmap because we aim to empower the creator economy, which will open new revenue streams for gamers and esports players. We will merge the cryptoverse and esports, and for the first time, players and fans will own the moment.”
Sebastian Ionut Diaconu, CEO of Ikonic commented, “The platform allows users to immortalise their outstanding gameplay into video NFTs, the next-gen type of memorabilia for esports. Partnerships and collaborations with the biggest names in esports and rising stars to create NFT collections that will be the foundation for an active ecosystem for the fans, creators, and collectors, with extensive benefits for all participants.
“Esports players’ status as athletes has been disputed for a long time. Creating a legacy through memorable moments captured and stored on blockchain, earning royalties from these NFTs and sharing their exceptional capabilities with the world, gives them the opportunity to make themselves a legendary or even an Ikonic athlete in the esports world.”
Players can create unique NFTs of their gameplay, after which they’ll be listed and ready to be traded on Ikonic’s marketplace. As the platform progresses into advanced development, its existing marketplace and community will be the centre of a broader marketplace for game-linked digital assets and will introduce the $IKONIC Token, which can be used to unlock rewards for both players and fans.
In the coming days, gamers will also be able to get a glimpse of the Ikonic video editing software for advanced NFT creation. The team will also reveal its Indie Game Launchpad for NFT games later this year.
