LaLiga, Spain's national soccer league, said it is making NFT token cards available to all players in the latest push by a major crypto sports organization.

Irreplaceable tokens are unique digital assets designed to verify ownership of virtual objects via the blockchain. Therefore, unlike Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, they cannot be traded with each other.

LaLiga partners with French company Sorare to launch NFT. The Sorare platform allows users to trade digital player cards and manage five-player teams in several fantasy football leagues.

Solare said they have signed an exclusive, long-term licensing deal with La Liga and that top players such as Antoine Griezmann and Vinicius Jr. They will join their platform.

“Today is a significant milestone for us as it is the first of five magazines to join the platform,” said Nicholas Julia, CEO and co-founder of Sorare.

The company said La Liga clubs receive commissions on sales. Sorare paid a minimum guarantee to ensure exclusivity.

LaLiga is one of several sports leagues entering the world of cryptocurrency.
