Ferrari has reached an agreement with the Swiss company Vellas to develop NFTs for the fans of Scuderia. The starting shot will be given next year.
Formula 1 has long been one of the sports that intend to exploit the potential of NFTs. Now the Scuderia Ferrari racing team is about to launch its own collection. To this end, Ferrari has agreed a multi-year partnership with the Swiss technology company Velas Network AG. While some competitors in the racing series are already creating their first NFTs, Ferrari is entering here with a little delay.
In an official statement said the Italian sports car manufacturer that it is delighted to have Velas Network AG as a partner. Ferrari and Velas will offer fans the opportunity to own digital collectibles from March 2022. Then the new racing season in Formula 1 begins.
The multi-year agreement provides for the creation of exclusive digital content for Scuderia fans. In addition, Velas becomes the title sponsor of the Ferrari eSports Series. Ferrari’s own eSports team is also sponsored by Velas. It competes in the official F1 eSports Series. The other teams in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship also take part.
After developing a next-generation blockchain that is built on both sustainability and performance, it was only natural to partner with another icon of excellence, namely Ferrari. Velas has brought an innovative variety of groundbreaking technologies to the blockchain and related products that are now presented at the forefront of motorsport
said Farhad Shagulyamov, CEO and co-founder of Velas Network AG, in the press release.
Scuderia Ferrari was the most successful Formula 1 team at the time. In the course of its history it has won a record of 16 constructors ‘and 15 drivers’ championships. Seven of them go to Michael Schumacher’s account. The last Formula 1 driver to become world champion in a Ferrari was Kimi Raikkonen in 2007.
