Opera & Football

Exquisite Pairing

A perfect weekend could include both Opera and Football without a sigh of dread or compromise. We’ve made it simple for you to be the hero and enjoy both at the same time without leaving quarantine. 

Welcome to Opera browser with over 380 million users worldwide, striving to make new technology and games more accessible through Web 3.0 advancements. Open the built-in crypto wallet in the Opera browser on the sidebar, and click through Opera’s DApp Store (decentralized applications on the web) and check out Sorare. Sorare is an Ethereum blockchain fantasy football game combined with digital-assets that takes collecting and trading football players to the next level. Blockchain technology proves rarity and ensures that each card is unique. This pairing brings global football fans and unique digital trading cards together in a seamless Web 3.0 user experience with a dashboard revealing statistical details and the provenance of cards to prove authenticity. 

Can I Really Enjoy Opera and Football at the Sametime? 

Absolutely. In fact, be the manager you always yearned to be and draft players from 126 officially licensed clubs such as Real Madrid CF, Liverpool FC, and FC Bayern München. You call the plays and draft your dream team. To prepare for game time, follow these simple steps first. Download Opera’s browser for desktop or mobile and signup on Sorare. Easy. Then claim your ten free “Common” cards and start building a team. Even easier. Players are sold according to scarcity levels; “Unique” (1 card), “Super Rare” (10 cards), “Rare” (100 cards) and trade or transfer with a click. Enter tournaments, get ranked, and earn prizes in ETH. Yes, you can win Ethereum cryptocurrency! Funds can be converted by activating Opera’s crypto wallet in the game or you can keep them and use the points to buy more cards. The rarer the cards, the more expensive they can be. A “Rare” card of Paris St. Germain’s Neymar will cost roughly €1,000 while the “Unique” one-of-a-kind card of the same player was auctioned for a staggering €23,874.12!
