DraftKings Reignmakers UFC is the first-ever fantasy NFT game that will allow fans to create Fighter Card NFT lineups of their favorite UFC fighters and use them to compete for prizes including VIP experiences, free bets, subscriptions monthly to watch the fights, autographed memorabilia and sequel.
One of DraftKingUFC Reignmakers holders @Nçane1 have won the UFC 277 VIP experience, which includes two UFC 277 tickets, travel accommodation, commemorative tickets, dedicated entry, official UFC gift, hospitality on plaza, ceremonial seats for the weigh-in, meet and greet a UFC athlete and post-fight photos in the octagon.
@Nçane1 was previously a DraftKings user on the sports betting platform and wanted to know more about DK’s involvement in the NFT space.
He was a member of the DraftKings Marketplace for about a year, and what he appreciates most about DK collectibles is the emphasis on utility and the incentives to dive into a new sport.
Because @Nçane1 wasn’t a fan before buying UFC collectibles, this was his first fight he saw live. While it was a special experience in itself, the event was not what @Nçane1 was most looking forward to.
“I’m taking any of the community members from Discord,” he said. “I’ve hung out with this member in the past, and we’re going to have this experience together now. That’s what I’m most looking forward to is spending time with these friends and the community that I love. have created and to experience these things together.
And their experience is something @Nçane1 will remember for a long time.
“I can’t say there was a real favorite part other than start to finish,” he said. “When we got to our spots, we were really close. And then I got to go into the ring afterwards, meet all the fighters, be close to them. It was great fun all around.
Of the 12 fighters @Nçane1 met, there was one interaction that stuck with him.
“Meeting (Alexander) Volkanovski was my favorite,” he said. “I watched him in the last fight, and it was a pleasure to meet him. He gave me a big bear hug and he was so happy to see me. And for him to take this time with me, it was really special. I had fun and it was very memorable for me.
While Volkanovski, the current UFC featherweight champion, was his favorite fighter, upon closer inspection the Pena-Nunes fight was his favorite fight.
“It doesn’t matter to me who won that fight because I knew it was going to be a good fight, and it was a fight,” @Nçane1 said. ” There was blood everywhere. I have to go to the Octagon after the fight, and I have to go to bed right on the DraftKings tag with the blood that was fresh. It was just an amazing opportunity.
Based on his experience, it’s safe to say that @Nçane1 will continue to purchase Reignmakers UFC Heatwave collectibles.
“I have 20 different fighters right now, and I’m going to expand that,” he said. “It’s going to play out over multiple events, so I’m excited for that…And I’m very excited to see what DraftKings then announces with Reignmakers.
Later this year, DraftKings will provide UFC Reignmakers owners the opportunity to play the first-ever NFT fantasy game that allows fans to create lineups of fight cards to compete for prizes. More details around the game will emerge, but what excites him is the mystery.
@Nçane1 will also play Reignmakers Football, the first-ever NFT fantasy game that lets fans create NFL rosters with “officially licensed” player cards to compete for prizes.
It’s a brand new concept, but he’s excited about the future and what DraftKings will be able to offer fans. So he is extremely encouraging others to join him.
“I tell them to dive in – it’s great fun,” @Nçane1 said. “It was really fun for me. The community is just motivated to help everyone, and you’re one of us when you get into it… And start collecting little ones and watching over time and everyone has a chance to win here. That’s what’s amazing.
Winning is fine, there’s no doubt about it, but what @Nçane1 kept reiterating is the sense of community and support in Discord.
“And I think that’s what it’s about, it’s the friendships that I’ve made, the unity of people where we actually care about each other,” he said. “Community, hands down, is the best thing I’ve ever had. DraftKings.
“Community is the best, and DraftKings recognizes this – they care about their community.
