Move-to-earn StepN is collaborating with WhaleFin and Atlético de Madrid to offer a new collection of 1,001 unique sneakers. The sneakers, sorted by rarity, will offer unique benefits to the club’s fans and help fund schools internationally.
StepN releases collection with Atlético de Madrid
The 3 entities have partnered to create a collection of 1,001 unique soccer shoes in the form of NFTs, which are classified into 3 different levels: ‘common’, ‘uncommon’ and ‘rare’.
The “common” classification will feature the various national and international trophies won by the club, with the corresponding date and place indicated. The “uncommon” class will refer to the club’s stadiums, and finally the “rare” shoes will be numbered from 1 to 11 in reference to the number of players in a soccer team.
The shoes will be part of StepN’s Genesis collection, and as such will offer certain benefits to their owners. These include a trip to the hotel and tickets to see Atlético de Madrid play at Cívitas Metropolitano, the club’s stadium.
However, some rewards are guaranteed. This is the case of the holders of “uncommon” shoes, who will be offered an official jersey of the team, and also that of the holders of “rare” shoes, which will also win the team’s jersey, but signed by all the players.
WhaleFin at the forefront
WhaleFin, the cryptocurrency platform of Amber Group, a Hong Kong-based digital asset infrastructure, will be responsible for selling 180 of the first 200 available shoes. The final 20, of the common classification, will be sold by StepN.
In order to access the sale, which will begin on August 26, it will be necessary to register on WhaleFin to obtain a participation ticket.
According to the press release, 10% of the profits will go to the club’s foundation to fund schools internationally.
Inigo Aznar, Atletico’s commercial director, is pleased to be able to offer this new system to the club’s fans:
“This strategic alliance with WhaleFin opens up a new world of possibilities for the club and our fans around the world. We look forward to discovering new ways to engage with our fan base and communities like StepN. Exploring allows us to discover the innovative possibilities that Web 3.0 has to offer.”
The floor price of StepN shoes is currently 1.66 SOL, or just over $60 at the current price. StepN’s token, GMT, has seen a 17 percent drop over 24 hours, with a current price of $0.81.
