Hamburg, January 2022. The first authorised CHESS WORLD CHAMPIONS NFT Collection will be enhanced by a special edition of Viktor Kortschnoj. This NFT edition will be raffled among all bidders of the CHESS WORLD CHAMPIONS NFT Collection auction at opensea.io after closing. With a bit of luck you will get a unique NFT, which may later gain collector value due to the explicit connection to the world championship series. Bid for at least one of the CHESS WORLD CHAMPIONS NFT Collection. Even if you get outbid, you have your chance of winning the Kortschnoj NFT.
Matthias Wüllenweber, Managing Director of ChessBase, is proud to release this unique NFT collection worldwide: “Although Viktor Kortschnoj was ultimately denied the title we want to honur him as an extremely successful player in the history of the world chess championships.”
The first authorised CHESS WORLD CHAMPIONS NFT Collection is released by ChessBase, the world leading German chess software company. The exclusive NFT collection “CHESS WORLD CHAMPIONS” presents the iconic games of the great minds like Bobby Fischer, Anatoly Karpov, Vishy Anand or Vladimir Kramnik with only one NFT per artwork.
