[PRESS RELEASE – Sydney, Australia, 2nd November 2021]
GreenPark Sports, the social gaming developer for next generation sports and esports fans, today announced its first limited edition drop of premium gear NFTs in partnership with Immutable X, featuring over 78,000 NFTs, available in virtual lockers for purchase.
GreenPark Sports mission is to bring global sports fans together to connect, compete, celebrate and collaborate in a uniquely social and immersive experience. First launched in January 2021, the free to play mobile app now includes early gameplay for two of the largest professional sports leagues and the single largest esport in the world.
The GreenPark Virtues Collection will represent four timeless virtues of sport and fandom: DRIVE, HEART, MIND and POWER. Today, the collection will begin as rare artifacts – powerful helmets, armor and kicks – to be collected and provide access to early community efforts. With the V2 launch of GreenPark’s flagship apps in 2022, these coveted pieces of gear will unlock status, access and powers both across the GreenPark metaverse and IRL.
The NFTs will drop on November 15 on nft.greenparksports.com powered by Kolex (www.kolex.gg) the premium white label marketplace application provider for NFTs. Built upon the Immutable X Layer-2 platform, GreenPark NFTs will be gasless and carbon-neutral.
Immutable X is the leading zero knowledge rollup for NFT’s on Ethereum, bringing unprecedented scalability while retaining Ethereum’s security for NFTs. The data representing all actions and transactions on the Immutable X rollup is compressed through STARK-based zero knowledge proofs, and then verified directly by smart contracts on Ethereum. Immutable X was built in collaboration with StarkWare, the company spearheading blockchain applications of STARK proofs.
“We are excited to be bringing even more cool NFT drops to Immutable X users,” says Robbie Ferguson, co-founder of Immutable. “GreenPark is building a very interesting blend of ‘metaversified’ real world sports, creating a digital community for super fans to come together. By deploying on Immutable X, GreenPark can reach the existing Ethereum-based NFT community while remaining environmentally green and sparing its members the enormous gas costs of using NFTs on Ethereum mainnet.”
“The GreenPark, Immutable and Kolex teams have been hard at work preparing for our monumental first NFT drop for GreenPark. The ‘Virtues’ collection embodies the ethos of GreenPark, establishes the origins of fandom and gives these founding fans ever-expanding impact in our world. This is only the beginning with more surprises on the horizon,” says GreenPark Sports co-founder, Ken Martin.
