The sale saw a spike in interest for Berlin-based Stryking products with performance analytic charts logging an impressive 6000% increase on the previous week. Until the sale, Stryking were probably best known for Football-Stars, their web and mobile gaming platform aimed at European fans.
Stryking made news in 2018 when they garnered support from Portuguese star Luis Figo and are now a subsidiary of Animoca Brands after being acquired in September this year. Animoca Brands have themselves previously enjoyed NFT auction successes with their official connection with Formula 1 motor racing.
Not resting on their laurels, Stryking have already started a second sale for Bayern Munich NFTs – called New Year 2020 Edition Legendary Player Cards – which will run until 6 January.
