The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) launched its first series of NFTs called “Drop Genesis” that tells the history of the World Cup in video clips of approximately 30 seconds.

Series 1: Drop Genesis from FIFA+Collect has begun its journey towards the foray of NFTs and as we have reviewed on NFTexpress in an article previous article, it is being driven by the strategic alliance with the Algorand blockchain.

The inaugural Drop contains unforgettable moments from the FIFA World Cup legacy throughout history. The first set of NFTs are worth $4.99 and can be purchased with either credit, debit or prepaid cards, but also allows you to pay with ALGO (Algorand’s native blockchain token), which at the time of this writing is worth $0.36 cents, or roughly one pack is worth about 14 ALGOs.

Each pack contains 3 30-second video NFTs of the most commemorative plays from the history of the different World Cups played so far in both men’s and women’s soccer. In addition, there are different rarities for each of the NFTs that are randomly delivered when opening the packs, including: common, rare, epic and iconic.

Moreover, at the time of writing, almost 50,000 NFTs are minted out of the 532,989 possible issues and you can share your non-fungible tokens on the different social networks.In addition, when you mint the NFT, you will be able to see it in Algorand’s explorer Algorand’s blockchain, since they are designed on this blockchain for the transparency and security of the properties that will be given to the users who acquire the digital assets.

Turning to the rarities of the NFTs, each common non-fungible token has a total of 63,168 pieces. The rare ones have 29,892 possible. The epics will be 12,126 and the iconic ones will only have 282 replicas.

This will generate the scarcity and future valuation of these assets that can be exchanged on the secondary market from October 9 when it will be unlocked on the FIFA+Collect homepage.

In this first Drop Genesis you can find NFTs of outstanding plays such as:
