The market for virtual currencies, which has given birth to many millionaires, is still attracting the attention of many investors around the world.
Along with virtual currencies, blockchain games have become increasingly popular in recent years.
Blockchain-based NFT games are based on the blockchain technology used in virtual currencies.
The main feature of the game is the possibility to earn money while playing.
Sorare, which has exploded in popularity around the world since its release in March 2019, is one such NFT game.
Sorare is a fantasy football game that uses cards of real-life footballers, and you can make money by winning leagues and buying and selling cards.
Some people may find virtual currencies too difficult to play with.
However, as Sorare is a game, you don’t need to have any difficult investment knowledge to play, and as it reflects the scores of real-life football matches and the players’ performances, those who are familiar with football have a good chance of earning money.
In this article, we will explain in detail how to register, deposit and withdraw money, buy and sell cards, and how to play at Sorare.

What is Sorare?
Sorare is a blockchain game released by the French company Sorare in March 2019.
Generally speaking, when you hear the word football game, you might think of Winning Eleven or FIFA.
However, Sorare is a digital trading card game (DCG) that combines a virtual fantasy football game with a real-world football match.
For example, let’s say you have a Lionel Messi card in your possession.
If you set this Messi card in your team formation and Messi scores or contributes to the game in a real match, you will get a score.
In Sorare, you will have four players in each of the following positions in a five-man squad and you will compete for the overall score
- GK (Goalkeeper)
- DF (defender)
- MF (Midfielder)
- FW (Forward)
- Free space
By the way, Sorare is licensed by more than 200 clubs around the world, so you can use the cards of the most famous players from the top leagues and get a great return if the players in your team play in real time.

- Eligible in the Under 23 League – the league in which the player is eligible to play.
Each time a player participates in a match he gains XP (experience points).
