WHO IS TOPPEM SPORTS?
Toppem Sports is a pioneering fan engagement brand that is giving FANDOM a home on the blockchain by uniting the world with interactive sports and gaming experiences built on fairness and technological transparency.
WHAT IS TOPPEM SPORTS BUILDING?
Central, The Center of it All, is a first-of-its-kind online sports and entertainment center designed to offer a range of interactive technology experiences and is home to, The Fantasy Sportsbook of Tomorrow, where all of the Pick ’em Predict-To-Earn gaming action takes place.
We are redefining fantasy sports engagement with immersive streaming and entertainment experiences offered in partnership with global brands from a range of industries including sports, music, gaming and more!
WHY A DECENTRALIZED PLATFORM?
Toppem’s decentralized fantasy sports platform leverages the power of blockchain technology and digital collectibles (NFTs) creating exciting skillful contests–powered by a player-first rewards system with instant prize pool payouts!
Our global inclusive community of players meet and compete in daily, weekly, and monthly Pick ’em Predict-To-Earn gaming tournaments, exclusive leagues, and player prop duels.
Innovative Scoring System
By having pioneered an innovative scoring system that brilliantly combines both fantasy sports and sports betting into one dynamic ecosystem, we have created the ultimate Pick ’em Predict-To-Earn game of skill rather than a game of chance by combining three criteria:
The focus is just picking money lines, spreads, or totals before the games/matches (pre-match) take place ranging from a variety of real sports, eSports, and metasports leagues.
No Player Draft or Building Fantasy Line Ups
Our ecosystem is determined by the odds of a winning selection without ever placing a real sports bet. This differs from both conventional fantasy games where points are awarded according to the performance of individual players and the sports betting industry.
As you can see, we are in a league of our own.
Cutting-edge Fantasy Sports Gaming Concepts:
4 The Win! is the premier monthly tournament that is designed to capture the authenticity and excitement of sports playoffs. It is an exciting bracket-style, four rounds/weeks, best-of-seven tournament where players have to win the first four out of seven days (just like pro sports where a team must win four out of seven games in the playoffs) to further advance, with the top three players capturing the total prize pool.
Player Prop Spread Duels
Pick your favorite players to out duel their rivals in daily, weekly, and monthly Pick ’em Predict-To-Earn gaming tournaments using pre-match player prop betting lines, a first of its kind.
Pick ’em Predict-To-Earn gaming leagues that run in conjunction with real professional sports, eSports, and metasports leagues.
Each team is comprised of seven NFTs, which Stakeholders either mint a full team of seven themselves or join with friends or community members.
Stakeholders work together or solo in a season to advance their team into the playoffs and championships.
There are exclusive individual and team prizes, ensuring non-stop competition and engagement throughout the competition.
Designed to deliver an interactive, inclusive and immersive experience that goes beyond the current fantasy sports offer with a global community based on the foundation of transparency and fairness for all, Toppem is, Better than the Rest.
