PRESS RELEASE. 25 February 2021 – Animoca Brands, the developer and publisher of the successful blockchain games F1® DeltaTime and The Sandbox, is further expanding its push to bring mainstream consumers to blockchain by announcing that MotoGP™ Ignition, the competitive management and collectibles game platform based on MotoGP™, will be built on the Flow blockchain, with the first content sale to begin 26 March 2021. Flow was originally created by Dapper Labs, the company behind NBA Top Shot and CryptoKitties.

MotoGPâ„¢, managed by Dorna Sports, S.L., is the oldest motorsports championship in the world, featuring the fastest riders and the most technologically advanced prototype racing motorcycles on the planet. MotoGPâ„¢ Ignition will allow fans to own and trade collectibles of their favorite MotoGPâ„¢ bikes and personalities on blockchain.

MotoGP™ Ignition will deliver two forms of MotoGP™ branded experiences centered around limited-edition non-fungible tokens (NFTs): a digital collectibles platform where users buy and sell cards of varying rarity, and a racing manager game. The game’s racing management experience will offer the bikes, riders, and champions of MotoGP™ as NFT collectibles that players use to assemble their racing teams to compete against other players.

Yat Siu, the co-founder and chairman of Animoca Brands, said: “We are very excited to begin launching MotoGPâ„¢ Ignition in the coming months and are absolutely thrilled to be the next major sports brand on the Flow blockchain after the success of NBA Top Shot.â€

Collectibles in the first ever MotoGPâ„¢ Ignition sale will be purchased using fiat currency with payment via credit card, and also using REVV, the utility token and in-game currency for branded motorsports blockchain games (learn about REVV in this video).

Flow blockchain is uniquely positioned to enable big brands to deliver richer user engagement and unique experiences, such as digital ownership or provable scarcity, in addition to offering access to a global, open ecosystem at launch. Coupled with innovative technology that allows for scalability without compromising decentralization, Flow offers unparalleled user experience for mainstream audiences.

“Flow is the perfect platform for high quality developers like Animoca Brands to build on because it provides the opportunity to scale,†said Roham Gharegozlou, CEO and founder of Dapper Labs, creator of the Flow blockchain. “MotoGPâ„¢ has done a fantastic job of engaging millions of fans of motorsports around the world, and those fans deserve a great, stable, fast experience.â€

Pau Serracanta, Managing Director of Dorna Sports S.L., commented: “We are delighted to continue working with Animoca Brands and announce MotoGPâ„¢ Ignition, offering fans the chance to own and trade collectibles on blockchain – curating their own collections as well as competing against each other in the racing management experience. The digital sphere has been a key focus for Dorna for many seasons and we are delighted to give our hundreds of millions of fans around the world yet another opportunity to interact with their favourite sport and get involved with MotoGPâ„¢.â€
