As the football fever increases with every breath-taking match, an officially licensed FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 metaverse game has been recently launched on the Hedera network, which is powered by its proprietary hashgraph technology; claimed as blockchain 2.0.

FIFA Licensed Web3 Game

Reality+ has partnered with OTZ Sports to launch “Own The Zone” Web3 game where fans get a chance to win limited-edition digital collectibles (NFTs) and also real-world prizes.

On the initial match card, players will receive two of the eight on-pitch zones for free for each match.

After the original game has concluded, actual player activities within player zones will award points, which will all be tracked using the official FIFA live match data. The chances of winning tickets to The Best FIFA Football Awards and £5,000 per match day increase with the number of zones you own in the FIFA Match Day Sweepstake.
