Sorare NFT Platform Faces Investigation from UK Gambling Commission

Sorare endures scrutiny from UK Gambling Commission.

Sorare Under Investigation

The UK Gambling Commission has cautioned users that Non-fungible Token (NFT) soccer platform Sorare has not yet been issued a required license from the regulator. 

In an official notice released on October 8th, the commission confirmed it is currently inquiring into whether the NFT platform actually offers services that fall under its jurisdiction. Until completed, its advice is prompt.

“Sorare.com is not licensed by the Gambling Commission.” The commission continued, “This means that any activity completed on the site by consumers in Great Britain is outside of the gambling regulations that a licensed operator should comply with.”

Of course, it isn’t curtains for Sorare. The commission itself made a point of highlighting the fact that it hadn’t necessarily found Sorare in breach of the law. It was simply trying to identify what laws pertain to Sorare.

“The Gambling Commission is currently carrying out enquiries into the company to establish whether Sorare.com requires an operating licence or whether the services it provides do not constitute gambling,” the notice explains. 

In an interview, Sorare responded by quelling any serious worry and explaining that regulatory questions are to be expected but that they had sought expert legal guidance and remained ‘very confident’ that their organization does not offer any forms of regulated gambling.
