we hosted an amazing AMA with Blockasset on the 30th of July
And here we will put some of the best questions:
Q1) Can you please introduce yourself as well as Blockasset ?
Well, I will start off with Blockasset first then myself. Blockasset is here to connect fans and athletes like never before. We leverage strategic relationships with athletes, agencies, and clubs and connect them to fans on a one-stop platform that will include an NFT marketplace, blockchain NFT ticketing, and blockchain NFT gaming. We are the number one athlete-verified NFT marketplace, and will continue to be in the future.
The goal? To create new stories with a unique combination of sport and tech.
My role in the team is a Community Manager. I try to grow our community, and help make their voices heard within our development roadmap, bridging the gap between the development team and our loyal fans and customers.
Q2) What are the advantages of Your project ?
We have seen an incredible rise in NFTs over 2020. The thought behind NFts is to verify you are the owner of said non-fungible token. The opportunities to bridge this authenticity an NFT provides and sports are endless.
Athlete NFTs are now a multi-million dollar industry that enables sports enthusiasts to immortalize sporting moments and interact with athletes 1–1. Unlike tangible sports cards and memorabilia that can be easily faked, digital sports cards & artwork NFTs are securely minted on the blockchain, tracking and storing the ownership & authenticity of the item.
With Blockasset NFT’s, physical rewards are added to the NFT smart contracts. Real-world perks can include meet & greets, personal training sessions, signed sportswear, match tickets, video airdrops, and much more.
Q3) please tell us about the goal you want to achieve in this year?
This is a summary of our roadmap till the end of the year. So far, we have had an incredible roster of athletes officially announced, including Euro 2020 winner Georgio Chiellini, legendary UFC fighters Darren Till and Michael Bisping, France legend David Trezeguet, and many many more. We are not stopping there as there dozens of more incredibly athletes that will be announced once they are ready. In Q2, we launched our platform, but it is currently undergoing a major improvement in all its features and our Platform 2.0 will be launched very soon.
For Q3, as you can see, we plan on launching our $BLOCK token once the platform is launched and everything is set in place. Currently, we are in the private sale phase and we have put the community first, giving them the chance to help become part of this before anyone else through signing up here and getting their token allocations at a better price than anyone else for believing in us and coming with us on this journey. Other plans and scaling is under development, this includes:
NFT event ticketing
Blockasset productions (Exclusive behind-the-scenes content!)
Q4) Every project has a story behind their name, Can you tell us more about the story?
Competitive sports are about memories: Who could forget the golden goal scored by David Trezeguet to win France the European Championship Final in 2000? The euphoria and excitement every football moment brings you. Not just football, a knockout in the UFC, a dunk in the NBA, a homerun in a baseball game, any major moment in sports related to your favorite athlete is always stuck in your mind. Those moments are incredibly special, and the younger generation have been looking up to athletes as role models for years now.
With each memory created, moment by moment, fans are invested in the experience of supporting their teams and players. However, for most fans, elite athletes live in a separate universe, inaccessible and remote, despite the world being more connected than ever before. Yes, you can follow them on Instagram, but what about being able to meet them in person? Or being sent some signed memorabilia just for you?
This is exactly what Blockasset wants to do. Bring this connection to you through the power of NFTs and adding real world value to your NFT through direct interaction with your favorite athlete.
And here we will put best questions from our members and Blockasset fans:
Q1) You mentioned on your twitter that one of your nft collections in collaboration with a famous football player sold for $60,000. So, what’s your next biggest plans in terms of collaborating with more famous football players? Maybe cristiano ronaldo is in your plans?
Oh we would love to have Cristiano Ronaldo haha who knows? Maybe one day you will see him on our platform. You will have to wait and see for yourself. 👀 As you can see from the picture I just sent. We have all these incredibly talented and legendary athletes signed and official with Blockasset already. There is so many more coming soon and the announcements will be made once it is time to make our community go wild.
The names on this list includes a diversity of sports, and this is exactly what we want to achieve. Blockasset wants to become a one-stop shop for everyone’s athlete-verified NFTs, whether it is UFC, Rugby, Football, Boxing, or any other sport. We have plans for the long term and our aim is to include all the major athletes in as many sports as we can, as long as the community is supporting it.
Q2) There are many cases when content creators, musicians, artists, etc. Get their work printed into the NFT and offered for sale without their permission. How can we be sure that this will not happen in #blockassetco ?
This is a great question indeed. Copyrights and intellectual property is still a major topic to be fully covered in the world of NFTs to make sure the NFT you will buy with your hard earned money is useable and not just a random cool drawing of your favorite athlete.
Blockasset avoids this through two steps. The first is my answer to question right before this as we are directly in partnership with the athletes on our platform and the NFTs released are after their signature and confirmation.
The second point is that Blockasset works with athletes to ensure the NFT artwork and corresponding extras meet the athletes’ high standards. All athletes are paired with artists of their choosing, this ensures that all NFTs artworks are unique to the athlete, telling the story of the athlete as never seen before.
Q3) saw an article in the #Blockasset group, that there is a Private Token Sale V 1.0. Will there be a Private Token Sale V 2.0 and so on in the near future? What are the differences between the versions? and how to take part in the token private sale?
Currently, we are taking a community first approach. Of course, it is always nice to have a lot of financial support coming into the project from big investors but the ones that really make the project succeed and make Blockasset the number one athlete-verified platform is the community. You.
That’s why we launched the private sale for the community to get the opportunity to sign-up and be part of our private sale and feel they are part of our team, getting $BLOCK tokens at the lowest possible price,
Make sure to register here so you get notifications about our private sale tokens and become a proud $BLOCK holder. https://forms.gle/fnf57GRLaT972wDK8
Q4) Blockasset currently resides in the Solana network. But, do you have plans to expand to other networks like BSC, Polkadot, etc? The integration of a bridge in different chains is very useful for investors and their assets in terms of cost reduction in rates?
Yes, that’s absolutely correct. The integration of cross-chain operability is really important. Currently we are on the Solana network as you mentioned mainly due to their network advantages and transaction speeds. However, we understand the need to accommodate different networks. The token will also be deployed on the Binance Smart Chain (BEP-20) and Ethereum )ERC-20) chains across appropriate bridges.
This process will be done in the near future and hopefully our community will get to enjoy interacting with the network they are more comfortable with.
The above image gives you an idea of why we chose Solana as our main network over the others till we implement and accommodate our cross chain functions.
Q5) Most of the nfts don’t have real life use don’t be fair They are just made with intention to earn profits !,but no real life usecase or being beneficial to our ecosystem ! So what about blockasset is it also the same what I said above ?
A great question indeed. The real world use cases of NFTs are few, but what about real world use cases for athlete NFTs? They are very much possible and our great partnerships and connections we have with our signed athletes allow us to add real world incentives to every NFT you purchase. This is the original idea and purpose behind Blockasset’s existence. To bridge the gap between the community and their favorite athletes through holding their verified NFT.
To give you an idea, the Chiellini NFT sold for over $60,000 included:
- Meet and greet with Giorgio over the next 12 months, this will be done in the city where he resides.
- 1 x Match worn and signed shirt by Giorgio.
- 2 Tickets to watch Giorgio play for either Italy or his domestic club.
- Physical Artifact, this includes an Infinite Objectives frame of Giorgio’s 1/1 NFT.
- Signed Autograph card by Giorgio. All costs will be covered by Blockasset.
All these real world benefits come with holding the Gladiator NFT: https://blockasset.co/#/auction/BAHHMDGsNjKMZ4pUKGqqKBX2yzQJaqEhs3GQHwS3LQ1D
This is just one example of many to come, and this is how we work at Blockasset. Every NFT will have its own perks that comes with it and ways to connect you directly to your favorite athlete in whatever sport you love.
Q6) Hi sir check my question, Do you have Twitter/Telegram/Discord community? If yes can you share the link here because there is a lot of fake telegram/twitter groups?
Yes, we have official channels across almost all social media platforms. Each platform has our content and official announcements to make sure the community knows everything of what me and the hard working Blockasset team achieves.

Q7) Tell us a little bit about the role of your tokens and your project within the entire ecosystem.
Will it act as a simple payment currency on all of your products?
Or will its holders have some kind of interest or vote in the decisions of the project?
Our $BLOCK token has many use cases. It is not yet launched, but as mentioned before, it is part of our Q3 roadmap and will be out very soon within the next couple of months once the platform is revamped and everything is set in place. The way you can use our $BLOCK token includes the following use cases:
Staking. $BLOCK tokens can be transferred into a staking smart contract to access NFT rewards and various other airdrops. They can also be staked to earn discounts on platform fees, reduce the list price of NFTs, boost NFT resale listings, and win VIP experiences.
NFT Yield Farming. From time to time, Blockasset may list exclusive items and NFT drops. These will be denominated in terms of a secondary currency, the $nBLOCK token. To earn $nBLOCK tokens, holders would need to separately farm the $nBLOCK token by locking up $BLOCK tokens for a period. Users can then use $nBLOCK to purchase exclusive NFTs only available to yield farmers.
Governance. $BLOCK will also be used on the platform for governance purposes. We want fans to engage in building custom NFTs and choose their adventures. $BLOCK holders will be able to vote on the creation of new NFTs, experiences, and tiers. Various methods of blockchain-based governance will be used to make this an inclusive process. These include tools like token curated registries and lists.
Our token metrics and use case.
Q8) Can you list 1-3 killer features of your project that put it ahead of its competitors?
What competitive advantage does your platform have that you feel most confident about?
This is a really nice question. to make this answer short.
1 – Our NFTs are verified by the athletes themselves so you can make sure you are buying an official NFT from your favorite athlete.
2 – Every NFT has real world perks attached to it, allowing you to interact directly and personally with your favorite athlete.
3 – Our connections within the sports world and development team is incredible so we know what we can bring to the NFT space
Q9) Which one of these aspects important for you?????
1️⃣-Increasing Token Price&Value
2️⃣-Empowering Platform Development
3️⃣-Building Community Trust
4️⃣-Expanding Partnership Globally?
I can’t choose one out of the four, am I allowed to choose all four?
You can’t sacrifice any of these four points if you truly want your project to succeed. This is why we are focusing on all four at the same time. It is a lot of work but the success and the experiences we can bring to fans with their favorite athletes is all worth it.
Q10) While you build your project, do you take into account community feedbacks and demands?While you build your project, do you take into account community feedbacks and demands?
Yes, absolutely. The community feedback will always be taken into consideration. We have plans to include ambassador programs and we are currently running two votes per day on our Telegram channel to make our community used to voting. Even the $BLOCK token has a governance use case to it, allowing you to directly influence the direction and future developments of Blockasset.
