FC Bayern Munich digital collectibles go on auction with money-back guarantee
Berlin, Germany - December 3, 2019: Stryking proudly announces it has started the auction for 18 unique official FC Bayern Munich licensed digital collectibles. The auction is live now and will run until 6pm on 6 December 2019 (GMT). Representing a significant innovation in the blockchain space, the auction offers the protection and peace of mind of Stryking’s money-back guarantee, which allows auction buyers to return the Player Cards to Stryking for a refund during the redemption period, no questions asked. See http://presale.stryking.io for auction details.
The Player Cards on auction are non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which are unique cryptographic tokens that have their authenticity and ownership secured and guaranteed by blockchain technology. Unlike most digital media, NFTs have properties such as rarity and uniqueness - just like physical collectibles. This makes NFTs particularly well suited for digital collecting.
The FC Bayern Munich players featured in the Player Cards are Robert Lewandowski, Manuel Neuer, Philippe Coutinho, Thiago Alcántara, Thomas Müller, Jérôme Boateng, Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry, David Alaba, Corentin Tolisso, Kingsley Coman, Lucas Hernández, Benjamin Pavard, Javier Martínez, Ivan Perišić, Alphonso Davies, Niklas Süle, and Leon Goretzka.
Owners of these Player Cards will enjoy complete digital ownership of the cards with the freedom to do anything they want, including selling them on a marketplace for real money or using them in any supported blockchain games.
The Player Card NFTs announced today are unique, one-of-a-kind digital collectibles that true fans and collectors should not miss.
Rare digital collectibles can be tremendously valuable. The “1-1-1”, the first official Formula 1® NFT for the upcoming blockchain game F1® Delta Time, was sold for 415.9 ether (approximately US$113,000 at the time of sale); the CryptoKitties unique NFT “Dragon” sold for 600 ether (the equivalent of about US$170,000 at the time of sale); the NFT “Hyperion” for Gods Unchained sold for 146.271 ether (worth approximately US$60,000 at the time of sale).
The auction for all 18 FC Bayern Munich Player Cards is live now and ends on 6 December 2019 at 6pm (GMT). Participation in the auction requires a web browser that supports Ethereum wallets, as well as an Ethereum wallet; bids are made in ether (ETH).
The 18 FC Bayern Munich Player Cards come with a money-back guarantee that represents a major innovation in the blockchain space, providing buyers with security and peace of mind in their purchases. After an initial 3-month cool down period, auction winners will have 30 days to return the FC Bayern Munich Player Cards to Stryking for a full refund (minus applicable gas fees; the cool down period for each Player Card begins when the auction for that item ends).
FC Bayern Munich was founded in 1900 and is the most successful club in German football history, with a record of winning 29 national titles and 19 national cups.
