F1 Delta Timethe official racing game based on NFT and cryptocurrency, launched in 2019, closed last month. This ensures that anyone who has spent money and invested in the project probably wished they had done something different on their own time.
The game, which was one of the first licensed NFT games many years before other leagues and sports went bust, announced its shutdown on March 15, giving users… a day before the game shuts down on March 16. You’ve never seen F1 Delta Time before and you think, “Wow, did I miss the thrilling Formula 1 racing game?!?!”, haven’t you seen it:
The games shut down all the time, but the remarkable thing about this is that it was pretty serious at one point, at least in this damn room! Example: The most expensive NFT sold in all of 2019 was a car for this game, which cost over $100,000. Add to that the official F1 license and the promised opportunity for players to “play to earn”, and you get an early example of how NFT-based games can work.
