Blockchain today represents a real boon for any industry that wants to be at the forefront of innovation. Even in the gaming world the blockchain has its coast with the tokenization of the economy offering an infinity of possibilities. Aware of this challenge, the European leader and world number 3 in horse racing bets dives into Web3. Indeed, the PMU (Pari Mutuel Urbain) is initiating a new dynamic and is offering itself a project that matches its ambitions. Therefore, it has partnered with 321founded, the first “business start-up studio” in France, to create the first French Fantasy Game Web3 platform with official licenses (France Galop and Le Trot) based on real racehorses: Stables . Also, it is a new deal in horse racing experience that combines NFT, blockchain and gaming. We tell you everything about this new gaming platform.
Stables, a winning bet for PMU
Horse racing is an ancient entertainment that was very popular in many countries. The industry now weighs in at several billion dollars. With its Stables platform, PMU breathes a breath of modernity by introducing Web3 innovation.
Indeed, Stables offers a new gaming experience based on NFT technology and web3 that takes up the intensity of horse racing, and all this from January 9, 2023. Thus, it is the meeting of the virtual and the real. It is the result of the collaboration of a team of experts set up under the guidance of the PMU. Entrepreneurs, Web3 specialists and professionals from the world of horse racing have come together around a common goal: to offer a new and innovative experience in horse racing.
Additionally, Stables has a major blockchain partner. Therefore, it is Tezos that has met all the platform criteria, in particular:
- a high level of security;
- low energy cost;
- low transaction fees;
- an important community and partners;
- long-term operational expectation.
NFT accessible to all
The Stables platform offers its users the opportunity to own NFTs. Each NFT stable represents a digital horse linked to a real racehorse. Hundreds of attributes and millions of combinations are distributed among these perfectly designed 3D horses. In addition, holders of these NFTs will have access to rewards related to real races and the Fantasy Game. Therefore, they will actively contribute to the development of the game, as the proceeds from NFT sales will be reserved and used exclusively to animate the game and the community.
From Monday January 9, players have the opportunity to start with Stables. In other words, they can participate in a first selection of whitelisted NFTs. By registering, they will receive a free Stables Pass (ntNFT) which will be the key to entering the Stables universe and the whole process until their NFT is minted
To this end, they can register their wallet addresses to receive exclusive NFTs from the platform’s two annual collections. These early adopters will be able to acquire up to 2 NFTs from funding per portfolio. Therefore, Stables offers the possibility to try to be part of the whitelist by completing the missions on its website. Note that this is the only possibility to mint NFTs with giveaways organized in the Stables ecosystem.
Between virtual and real, Stables rises to the top
Stables builds on the PMU ecosystem to deliver an innovative horse racing experience. The intensity of the universe is there, since these rides are based on real horse racing.
The results of these real races are used to award NFT holders with special points called S-Points.
The distribution of these points is done thanks to an algorithm that is based on an empirical model of 10 years of horse racing data.
Several improvements are also planned for 2023.
Thus, the game will grow thanks to the users and will allow players to intervene on their NFT and virtually modify its performance and results.
