Virtue Poker’s online poker tournament will present famous celebrities like Joe Lubin, Justin Sun, Paul Pierce, Phil Ivey, and several others. In addition, the event’s winner will have the opportunity to donate $100,000 to a charity of his choice.
According to reports, this event is a first of its kind. It will be the first online poker tournament that uses non-fungible tokens. More so, other blockchains like Binance NFT auctioned seats for the event as well. Binance NFT sold “The Golden Ticket NFT” to the public, whose winner could come and compete in Virtue Poker’s event.
