Blockchain Heroes has airdropped fans an NFT trading card starring a crossover character from Topps well ahead in advance of their release this coming August 8th.
Yep, two days from now – Hurry up while stocks last!
Digital collectibles trading card series Blockchain Heroes starts this week, but won’t be available with old school fiat or credit card payments. Alternatively, trading card fans will only be able to buy packs using WAX tokens, currently priced at $0.05.
In a live stream of The Bad Crypto Podcast on August 5th, Comm and co-host Travis Wright also announced they’d partnered with trading card company Topps to publish a crossover character from the Garbage Pail Kids series.
‘Adam Bomb’ from Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids will be reborn as ‘Atomic Adam’ in the Blockchain Heroes world. Comm and Wright airdropped the non-fungible token (NFT) live to fans with addresses, including cards from either series.
The giveaway was in the approach of Blockchain Heroes’ announcement on August 8th. The firm will be taking in significantly fewer than 125,000 cards open for sale on the WAX blockchain. It highlights 50 different superheroes animated by top influencers, inventors, and content creators throughout the blockchain community.
The two types of packs ready — Hero and Titan — will highlight cards with superheroes varying in rarity from ‘common’ to ‘mythical’ and saved on the blockchain in the form of NFTs. Each card will be allocated a unique minting identification number, implementing transparent sales and trading history, permanent ownership records, and certain rarity.
The project is backed by a WAX Labs grant and will begin on the WAX blockchain.
Restricting purchase activity
Unlike prior sales of NFT trading cards, Blockchain Heroes is preparing to limit buying of packs to 10 and 25 at a time to stop whales from keeping and reselling on secondary markets.
In May 2020, Garbage Pail Kids cards sold out in less than 28 hours on WAX, with collectors eyeing up to 25x returns in a secondary market. Lately, 125,000 digital collectibles from Star Trek’s William Shatner sold out on the blockchain in less than nine minutes.
“We welcome whales, but we want to slow the roll,” Comm clarified. “We don’t care if we sell out in nine minutes.”
