Last month, F1 Delta Time, an official NFT and crypto-powered racing game that debuted in 2019, came to an end. Everyone who has invested money and time in the project is probably wishing they had spent it on something else. Fomrula 1 NFT game has gone haywire.
On March 15, the game—which was one of the first licensed NFT products out there, years before other leagues and sports got involved in the scam—announced its termination, giving users… one day before the game shut down on March 16. If you haven’t watched F1 Delta Time and are wondering to yourself, “Wow, did I miss a fantastic Formula 1 racing game?!?!?” you haven’t:
Formula 1 NFT game – Why was it special?
Games crash all the time, but this one is noteworthy because it was once a major event, at least in this cursed universe! For instance, the most valuable NFT sold in 2019 was an automobile for this game, which sold for more than $100,000. You had an early test case for how NFT-powered games could operate when you combined the official F1 license with the promise of the possibility for users to “play to earn.”
All game NFTs has gone useless
However, because its owners, Animoca, have been unable to renew the F1 license, it has become a test case for what happens when a licensed NFT game dies. All of the money spent on vehicles and other items—some gamers would subsequently spend nearly $300,000 on a single transaction—seems to be useless now. The tokens themselves live on, but without the game for which they were purchased, they have no real worth.
Fully aware of this, the developers promised owners of F1 NFTs that they would soon be able to obtain generic replacement tokens for a completely different racing game:
