BLOCKASSET LAUNCHES CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN WITH SEEDRS
Sports fans, tech enthusiasts and investors are now open to an exciting opportunity to buy equity in Web3 sports platform, Blockasset, thanks to a new partnership with Seedrs.
Having already made history with the highest-grossing sports NFT collection on the Solana blockchain, Blockasset is now inviting further investors to be a part of the organisation’s move into the physical sports collectibles and trading card market - a market with projected growth of USD 6.71 billion by 2026.
With licencing agreements with legendary athletes such as Muhammad Ali, Alexander Ovechkin, Wayne Rooney and Oleksandr Usyk, Blockasset is building the ultimate online home for sports fans and collectable enthusiasts with an all-in-one physical & digital sports memorabilia marketplace. The platform is supported by Web3 social tools and boasts a new product for sports fans with verified athlete tokens.
Blockasset has already enjoyed exponential growth since launching in 2021 and is widely recognised as one of the fastest-growing sports brands in the world, amassing over 16 million views of its athlete-focused content series on YouTube.
Equipped with a roster of more than 40 elite MMA athletes, including the likes of Leon Edwards, Alex Pereira and Khamzat Chimaev, Blockasset has already connected thousands of fans with their sporting heroes, and the Seedrs partnership is designed to amplify this further.
Referencing the new partnership between Blockasset and Seedrs, Blockasset CEO Paul Evans said: “This is a unique and exciting opportunity for investors to become a part of our story. Despite a prolonged, difficult environment for Web3-focused brands, Blockasset has continued to build, and our strategic partnership with Chiliz holds us in good stead as we look to grow our sports collectibles vertical with this raise”.
Speaking of Blockasset’s community, Evans continued: “Our large and loyal community has played a crucial role in our growth so far, and we’re incredibly grateful for their backing. However, in partnering up with Seedrs, we can present this opportunity to a new audience of investors that we believe can become part of our community and active brand ambassadors to help continue our rapid growth.”
Having recently completed an exclusive investment round for Blockasset community members, the Seedrs crowdfunding campaign will offer a second chance to those who missed out, in what is likely to be the easiest opportunity to buy equity in Blockasset for some time.
Online investment platform Seedrs celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2022, having raised more than £2 billion for businesses in its first decade of operation.
