The company’s first official Formula 1 digital collectible, the 1-1-1 car, was recently sold at an auction for 415.9 Ether, worth about US$113,000.
This winning bid represents one of the highest sums ever paid for a game-based non-fungible token (NFT) or virtual asset, and the highest price for a branded game NFT.
The 1-1-1 is the first digital car to be released for the upcoming F1 Delta Time blockchain-based game developed and published by Animoca Brands.
