Major League Baseball Collectibles Are Coming to Ethereum

Fri Jul 13, 2018 3:27 pm

Major League Baseball (MLB) is turning to blockchain to expand its fanbase.

MLB announced Friday that it has partnered with Lucid Sight, a blockchain startup based in Los Angeles, to launch a dApp game on ethereum late this summer to allow baseball fans to interact with their favorite moments during the games, Yahoo Finance reported.

The game, MLB Crypto Baseball, will work similarly to CryptoKitties, which had a direct influence on the baseball league's new game, according to MLB executive vice president of gaming and new business ventures Kenny Gersh.

"We were already talking to Lucid Sight around the time that CryptoKitties first came out," Gersh said. "And then CryptoKitties sort of validated it a little bit more."

In order to play this game, users must purchase ether and transfer it to MetaMask, one of the most popular ethereum browser wallets. After that, they can trade digital avatars tied to specific moments in recent games while possibly earning rewards and stickers.

MLB has seen attendance at games drop this season and it hopes that this game can attract a broader audience.
