On May 1st, 2019, an inexperienced yet highly ambitious gamer named YNWA published a post on Medium titled “Is it really possible to become a Sports Crypto-Gamer?”
Less than two years later, his results conclusively show him to be considered as a leading crypto-gamer and we are ecstatic that he has now joined BlackPool with his enviable Sorare collection.
YNWA is one of the most well-known and successful players of Sorare — the global fantasy football game. As described in one of his many well-written Medium posts, YNWA has been playing Sorare since the very beginning, meaning his knowledge of the game is as good as it gets.
YNWA competes consistently across all divisions in Sorare’s bi-weekly tournament and as the Sorare game scales over the coming years, the value of his collection is poised to increase accordingly. Having started his Sorare career as one of their beta testers in February 2019, his experience will become an invaluable asset for BlackPool.
The following words are from YNWA’s own announcement post;
The BlackPool DAO has already attracted leading managers from a number of the most popular games in the NFT world: Axie, Decentraland, Hashmasks, Cometh, Sorare and a variety of other art/music NFTs.
Today, I am delighted to join these pioneers with my Sorare collection and officially become part of the BlackPool family!
The primary motivation behind my decision is that it enables me to diversify my interests into a broader range of NFT assets. This collaboration will allow others to benefit from my future success in Sorare whilst I’m now positioned to prosper from the growth generated across all of the BlackPool DAO verticals.
On a day to day basis, I’ll continue to manage, trade and compete as I always do (and I plan to be as unrelenting as ever!) but you’ll mostly find me hanging out in the BlackPool Discord channel.
The future looks bright for YNWA; we welcome him to BlackPool.
