Why Are Top Collectors Buying Silks Avatars?

The high-profile investors are excited about the future growth of Silks and its entire NFT collection. Silks have created the world’s first derivatives-based play-to-earn ecosystem that links real-world horse racing to the metaverse. It’s a fantasy sports project that directly mirrors a sport that generates over $11 billion in wagers annually.

You must own one of the Silks Avatars to participate in the Silks P2E ecosystem. The Avatars serve as your digital identity in the metaverse and allow you to collect rewards. Furthermore, they also provide you with a lifetime mint pass for the annual Yearling Sale – the event that will enable you to mint Silks Horses NFTs.

The Silks Horses NFTs are derivatives of real-world thoroughbred racing horses. If you own the NFT of the horse that wins in real-world races, you are rewarded in the Silks Metaverse.

Yearlings (unraced horses less than two years old) sell for around $60,000 at auction. As the Silks ecosystem flourishes, investors expect these Silks Horses NFTs to increase in value. Even if the Silks Horses derivatives reach just 10% of the real-world value, they’re worthwhile investments. In all likelihood, they are expected to surge much higher over time – especially if you own a winning horse.

In addition, the project is led by highly experienced veterans in the thoroughbred horse racing industry. Troy Levey, a co-founder of Silks, is also the CEO of Circle 8 Farms and Tropical Racing – a company specializing in horse breeding and racing. Both companies have strategic partnerships with Silks to help push the ecosystem forward.
