Official F1 NFT Game Shuts Down, Leaving NFT Holders With Nearly Worthless Tokens


The official NFT game of Formula 1 racing has shut down permanently, leaving token holders reeling from the loss. 

According to a report by Kotaku, F1 Delta Time, the official NFT and crypto-powered racing game that was first launched in 2019, shut down last month. Investors holding the game’s tokens are now left with virtually worthless NFTs and wondering if the same could happen for future crypto-focused projects.

As noted in the report, F1 Delta Time originally appeared to be a poster child for the implementation of NFT in gaming. Players were offered the option to “play to earn,” in addition to having the ability to trade tokenized cars on the marketplace. One such NFT sold in 2019 for over $100,000, representing the most successful car sale on the game’s platform. 




Despite its early success, the game’s owner Animoca was unable to renew its F1 license, leading to the game being shut down on March 16. The game’s creator has responded to the criticism of user’s left with worthless NFT tokens, promising that they can be exchanged for “Replacement Cars,” which can be used in the Polygon-based REVV Racing game.

The developer is also offering users the ability to swap their now worthless NFTs for a variety of other virtual assets, which it says will be used in future games to obtain NFTs.
