Listen to this article

Sport's integration with blockchain technology is inevitable. The key to the longevity of this new fad is the intention of bringing a change by propagating the benefits to all involved parties. The main reason for the rise of such NFT trends is that they serve as a bridge between two worlds, sports, and blockchain, with innovation on both sides. Before the sensation subsides, the idea will permeate through the masses and bring a new meaning to sports.


The inspiration behind the inception of Walken, the decentralized network that incentivizes users with its unique system, was to serve as a quick solution to problems affecting not only our physical health but also our mental well-being. What makes Walken unique is that it simultaneously addresses three types of individuals: gamers, sports and fitness enthusiasts, and crypto holders by allowing them to earn WLKN tokens in exchange for their physical activity.


By introducing health into gameplay, players are stimulated to walk more and stay active and health-conscious. They can use WLKN to utilize the marketplace and compete in a contest. This way, users get more points and earn more tokens, enabling them to upgrade their cathedrals and stats. Combining blockchain with physical activity is unprecedented in gaming history. The idea calls for building a bridge between life outside the virtual world and life inside it, where both are interconnected.


Walken also presents five leagues where players can compete and earn more WLKN tokens. Each company differs in its difficulty level, but the prize pool for each League is worth it. With each group come new challenges and new rewards, and in the highest Leagues, players will face serious challenges. Just by walking around, players can earn gems that will be utilized to vary their character's parameters and boost their chances of winning in competitions. Using WLKN, players can upgrade their cathedrals and stats, purchase items, activate skill-ups, and compete in the different Leagues. The more steps a user takes on the platform, the more gems they will earn, which can be used to buy new Parameters.


Walken's goals are ambitious, but it is a step towards a brighter future because it opens the doors to new opportunities and challenges. We decide the fate of our health and wellbeing, not only in terms of physical capability but also in mental and emotional strength. With games such as Walken, more emphasis will be placed on physical activity. As blockchain technology makes its way into mainstream use, merging it with gaming and sports may be just what the world needs. However, its true potential will only be realized once the masses adopt it.
