VaynerSports Pass Welcomes Holders Into Game Of Silks Web3 Horse Racing

Providing pass holders with token-gated horse stables and exclusive estate for metaverse-based horseracing and community collaboration.

Game of Silks and VanyerSports Pass have joined together in bringing more engagement and benefits to thoroughbred horse racing into the metaverse.

VaynerSports Pass (VSP) holders will be given token-gated access to the new VSP horse farm and estate inside of the Game of Silks virtual ecosystem to stable racehorses and compete for prizes.

Launched in April by Gary Vee, VSP is a utility-focused sports agency project that grants users access to digital experiences, IRL sporting events, and curated NFT drops.

Through this partnership, VSP will invite its pass holders into the Web3 horse racing setting – unlocking new values and collaboration for both communities. VSP holders are welcome to connect with one another in Game of Silks to watch races as well as pool race earnings together.

“We are incredibly excited to build VSP Racing Stables as one of our first custom community-owned farms in the Silks metaverse,” stated Dan Nissanoff, Founder and CEO of Game of Silks, Inc.

First debuted in June 2021, Game of Silks is one of the first P2E metaverses which stimulates real-life horse racing. The Web3 fantasy game allows users to buy, trade, breed, and race thoroughbred horses for a variety of token rewards. Game of Silks presents horses, playable avatars, and land plots on Opensea which has become one of the top sports-based NFT projects on the Ethereum blockchain.

The avatars inside Game of Silks are unique in representing real-world identities in the game’s metaverse. In order to mint a Silk horse and gameplay, users must own a Silk avatar.

VSP holders who are interested in competing through digital horse racing will be granted the opportunity to a VSP holder-only Avatar Mint for their own interactive avatar. The avatar’s color-way and patterns extend to any of the owned assets inside the game.

Seeking to establish a permeant presence in the Silks metaverse, VSP will have branded racing stables, a dedicated farm, and an estate for hosting social gatherings and fostering community engagement.

VSP holders will also be able to share their rewards together for pooled liquidity supported by competitive horse racing performances.

“The Game of Silks vision for blending together the real world of horse racing and the metaverse aligns perfectly with our vision of sports and NFTs,” said in statement by AJ Vaynerchuk, Co-Founder of VSP. AJ is a certified agent for the NFL, MLB, and NBA players’ associations and partner at VaynerFund which supports Web3 projects like RTFKT Studios and Immutable X.

Following the initial partnership, VSP holders will receive access to major sports events in the horse racing industry like the annual Kentucky Derby. Future physical utilities will be unveiled and provided by upholding NFT ownership.
