Fantasy sports leagues have come a long way since the early 2000s. And as sports betting and daily fantasy sports (DFS) continue to gain steam, the industry is only expected to continue its meteoric rise.
But now that fantasy sports is everywhere a big question both fantasy enthusiasts and industry experts are asking the same question…
For SimWin Sports, the answer is true digital ownership — made possible by digital assets and the blockchain.
A 24/7/365 virtual sports experience, SimWin Sports’ virtual leagues drive a different experience from the fantasy leagues you’d join on Yahoo in years past. SimWin is a living, breathing digital sports league offering players an unprecedented degree of access and ownership. Fans can own rights to these virtual stars, controlling their training regimens until they are drafted by a professional team and then earning salaries, bonuses, sponsorships and more, just like real-world athletes. The entire experience is powered by SimWin Sports’ cutting-edge Athletic Performance AI™ engine which drives the lifelike competitions that players and fans can tune into at any time, anywhere in the world, day or night.
With the help of Immutable, players can truly own every aspect of their fantasy experience — players, stadiums, training gyms, and even entire organizations. Following a standard player career path, Virtual Players start out as college athletes, with their owners functioning as professional sports agents. With the proper training, development, and performance, select players can then advance into the official SimWin league, generating revenue for its owner in the process. In SimWin’s inaugural player drop, nearly ALL players will already be drafted onto a pro team and earning a salary.
Most exciting of all, SimWin will allow fans to draft these stars onto season-long and daily fantasy rosters to compete for cash, token and prizes in the world's only sports league that is never out of season. SimWin will launch with free-to-play and cash DFS options with season-long fantasy, in-play (Fantasy DASH(™)) and sportsbook licensing set to arrive in 2023. In 2024, SimWin plans to expand its success, launching new sports such as soccer, cricket and basketball.
But for SimWin Sports to effectively reach these goals, it needs infrastructure and tooling to scale. As SimWin enters its next stage of growth, Immutable’s zkEVM will provide access to the Immutable Platform, a one-stop-shop toolset for creating mainstream-ready web3 games. SimWin will also benefit greatly from Immutable’s trusted partner ecosystem and deep gaming expertise to assist with user onboarding, virtual asset drops, and community building for the SimWin Sports league.
"I am excited to announce our groundbreaking partnership with Immutable. Together, we are embarking on an unprecedented journey to revolutionize the gaming industry by combining SimWin's cutting-edge Athletic Performance AI(™), sports simulations, and fantasy gameplay with Immutable's Web3 expertise," said David Ortiz, SimWin CEO, and Founder. "This collaboration will bolster our Web3 expertise and benefit SimWin players, we will reshape the real money gaming landscape and usher in a new era of immersive, boundary-breaking experiences for sports fans around the world."
With 30 years of deep gaming industry experience, Ortiz has played a key role in the development of franchises like Madden NFL, MLB The Show, NFL Fever, and much more. Co-founder Tom Goedde touts an equally impressive resume, headlined by leading EA SPORTS’Global Product, Brand & Athlete Marketing and DraftKings’ marketing. Following both founders’ storied careers in gaming, the pair have also worked in the 24/7/365 fantasy sports betting industry, making them uniquely positioned to execute this vision.
While still in Beta, SimWin Sports’ digital football league has already attracted a bevy of celebrity team owners such as Magic Johnson, Jerry Rice, Marshall Faulk, LaMelo Ball, Tracy McGrady, Allen Iverson, and Penny Hardaway, while drawing investment and partnerships from industry leaders.
And this is only the beginning.
