Chilean chess Grandmaster (GM) Pablo Salinas will launch his non-fungible tokens (NFT) for the purpose of financing his career.
In total there will be five NFTs with the plays (presented in GIF) that have marked his career, they will be available on his website (sponsor.gg/pablosalinas) and will have a limited edition. The value of the pieces ranges from 0.0031 ETH (US $ 12) to 0.31 ETH (US $ 1,225).
“The checkmate of the century”Is one of the pieces that will be part of the collection, it will have 10 units available and each one will have a value of 0.31 ETH, about US $ 1,225 dollars, 1 million Chilean pesos. It is based on the play he made this year and that it was named that way.
In addition, all who buy this play will have access to a meet and greet with the chess player, he reports.
“This year in Sochi (Russia) it was my first world cup and I made history. I beat Danish GM Mads Andersen, finishing with a triple queen sacrifice. It was a very commented game and it was considered one of the most beautiful of the century and like the Chilean immortal ”.
Resources to focus on chess
Salinas indicates that his goal is to dedicate himself 100% to his career as a chess player. “My focus is to improve every day as a competitor and try to represent Chile in all the important championships.” However, on many occasions this dream has been difficult since he does not have the resources to cover the expenses involved in the skills.
Therefore, to ensure the financing of its next tournaments, Salinas raised a crowdfunding campaign that will offer NFT as a reward. For this, it made an alliance with the startup sponsor, who advised him with the development of digital assets and who previously raised the campaign to finance his participation in the World Cup in Russia.
“ESponsor was born with the conviction of financing talents that the productive market generally overlooks. As a company we are convinced that Pablo will continue to win for Chile, so we offered to give him technical support and accompany him on this path “, says Víctor Puente, CTO of sponsor.
