SEM9 Senai, the first esports hotel in Southeast Asia, recently launched the organization’s first NFTs on September 9th via Opensea. Dubbed the 99LIVES collection, this project reaffirms SEM9’s commitment to innovation in the blockchain and web3 gaming space.
Owners of 99LIVES NFTs will be eligible for a free night’s stay at the SEM9 Senai hotel. Holders will also be given access to limited-edition merchandise as well as invites to both physical and digital events. Additionally, each token features a unique tiger character that has original attributes, facial features, accessories, and so on
“The evolution of Web 3.0, blockchain, and metaverse has transformed the esports and gaming industry inside out. My vision for SEM9 has always been exploring new opportunities as technology develops and it is only natural for us to venture into the NFT space through our esports hotel,” said Tommy Chieng, the Chairman of SEM9. “With 99LIVES as our first NFT collection, we are expanding our portfolios to new horizons. SEM9 aims to be a pioneer and game-changer for the esports industry today. We are thrilled with the potential of Web3.0, blockchain, and metaverse that will be our foundation as we continue to build immersive digital experiences for our fans and the esports community.”
Since the grand opening of the SEM9 Senai esports hotel, the organization has found immense critical and commercial success. Over the last three months, the hotel has sold over 1,000 gaming rooms and served over 2,000 gamers.
