That's why we wanted to be one of the first federations to grant recognition in the virtual world, in addition to the physical Cups, to the winners of the national leagues.

And we will continue advancing in other digital content that we will be presenting in the coming dates and continue on this path in which many other sports will surely be added.".

What is an NFT?

The acronym NFT comes from the English “non-fungible token”, that is, NFTs are non-fungible tokens.

What does it mean that they are non-fungible?

They are those that cannot be replaced or replaced by others because each one of them is different from the rest, unique, with different properties and each one has a certificate of authenticity and ownership.

In contrast, a fungible token is an asset that can be replaced by the same asset. because they have the same value: a Bitcoin is always worth a Bitcoin, the same with money, a euro is a euro no matter what bill we have.

 Blockchain technology in sports

Thanks to this technology, FETRI is being pioneer in the world of triathlon in delivering official trophies and medals minted by the Federation, with a certificate of authenticity and ownership recorded in the blockchain forever.
