We are excited to usher in a new era of Cricket fandom with the launch of the BETA version of Rario! Here is a rundown of everything you need to know.
The rollout will be done in a way to gain insights and get feedback from our early players, and then open it up for the billion plus Cricket fans across the globe. At each stage, additional players will be invited to join, starting small and ending with our entire waitlist.
The beta stage players will have the opportunity to not just take this amazing new platform for a test drive but also rack up valuable early serial numbers of the officially licensed Cricket digital collectibles on offer.
What is Rario?
Rario is a cricket fans’ club, where lovers of the sport can collect, trade and play with officially licensed digital collectibles ranging from player cards to video moments to cricket artefacts.
So now instead of just following your favourite players in action or watching their jaw dropping skills — you can own those plays.
What are Moments & Player Cards?
Skyscraping sixes. Cartwheeling stumps. Grass burning dives. Gravity defying catches. It is never a boring day out there whenever top cricketers take the field. Now, apart from savoring those moments of brilliance, you can own a piece of the action.
Rario has teamed up with the biggest leagues and players in the world to convert these epic highlights into ‘Moments’ that you can collect & cherish forever.
The moments are carefully curated by cricket experts & analysts, making sure that cricket fans have the most heart-thumping, adrenaline pumping moments to collect & showcase.
Each officially licensed digital collectible will have a unique serial number and unique identification, powered by Non Fungible Token (NFT) technology. This means that as a fan, you will be part of the select few who officially own a particular moment — now that is something worth flaunting!
What are Packs?
The moments & player cards come in ‘Packs’ — which is a collection of two or more moments or cards, curated according to a theme. Examples of themes include packs for a particular edition of a league, or for type of plays (like catches, wickets, shots).
Fans can purchase packs to reveal the moments & cards and add it to their collection. They can also put these moments on sale on the marketplace and trade with fellow fans.
The packs come in tiers of Silver, Gold, Black and Unique depending on the rarity of the moments that they contain.
Most packs will also have a fixed circulation, which means only a limited number of fans can own the moments from those packs.
What are Drops?
The packs go-live on our platform on pre-specified dates called ‘Drops’. Fans will get notified via email, social media platforms and our community channels (like Discord) about upcoming drops.
They can then reserve their spot for the drop day and wait in queue to purchase the pack. Once the purchase is complete, they can ‘rip the packs’ to reveal the moments.
What do Moment Tiers & Serial Numbers signify?
The Rario Moment Cards are categorised in tiers based on how special the moment is; which decides its rarity and circulation. The tiers, in ascending order are: Silver, Gold, Black and Unique.
For example, the Dhoni World Cup winning six could be a collector’s item available only to a few super-duper-fans who would love to own and flaunt it (and maybe trade it for a cool return on the marketplace!) That would make it a Black or Unique tier Moment Card.
But, Dhoni’s trademark helicopter shot, from say his 148 against Pakistan, could be owned by many more fans by virtue of being in higher circulation. That would make it a Gold or Silver Moment Card.
The Serial Numbers (SN) denote the circulation, or how many times has the moment been ‘minted’. Make sure you snag the early SN or some SN which related to the player, like 7 is to Dhoni — since they traditionally increase in value.
The type of moment owned by you will also come into play once we launch our games. Stay tuned for that!
Why is this special?
Rario is the first of its kind platform for officially licensed digital collectibles in Cricket. For the first time, passionate fans can participate in the digital economy of Cricket by buying, selling and trading moments or cards — while showcasing their depth of knowledge about the game & their fandom.
The collectibles i.e. Moments & Cards make up the essence of Rario, but upcoming features like Collection, Challenges and an exciting game (currently in development) bring these collectibles to life.
Show off your epic collection: Are you the biggest cricket fanatic and are not afraid to brag about it? Rario is the perfect place to take your fandom to another level. Want to curate the best relay catches at the boundary? Us too! Want to collect the cards of all players who won Man of Match in major league finals? Love it! You can go crazy and express your fandom here, and put it out for the world to see.
Trade with fellow fans: The hottest new Rario digital collectibles will drop in limited numbers, but you can put the ones that you don’t want (or the ones that someone else wants more, which will fetch you a higher price) up for sale in the peer-to-peer marketplace. Or, you can visit the marketplace to snag that one missing moment that will complete your collection of game winning sixes!
Assemble your dream team, show them who’s the boss: Already well into development, the Rario mobile game will be the best way to put your dream team into action. Based on the collectibles you already own, you can play along during live matches or challenge other fans to not just get bragging rights but also win exciting goodies.
