The Hero Report #30 Summary (February 3, 2021) 

WAX NFT Awards 

We are happy to announce that we recently won some things at the WAX NFT Awards. Thanks to all of your votes, we won the Gold Award (2nd) for “Best Community” and the Silver Award (3rd) for “Best Art.” We very much appreciate everyone’s support, and hope to keep bringing you the best content possible! 

State of the Megaverse

The Series 1 pack opened rate has climbed up to 89.86% (9154/10000 Hero Packs, 2079/2500 Titan packs opened). We are almost to 90%, so keep those packs a crackin’! And don’t forget the Electric Genesis still has not dropped, which means there’s a 1/846 chance (approx. 0.12%) of scoring the EG when cracking a Series 1 Hero Pack. And doubly don’t forget the Blue Wizard’s amazing bounty offer of $20,000 USD for the Electric Genesis! That is, if you could ever part with it after scoring it! As for Series 2 packs, there are 63.38% opened (6179/9102 Hero Packs, 2291/3851 Titan Packs, 1518/2807 Gallery Crates). 

80 Golden Cards Dropped 

The Golden variants for the First Strike series, Golden Fury (Heroes) and Golden Fiery (Villains), have all been dropped randomly among all qualifying wallets. There were 80 Golden Cards dropped in total to purchasers of Phase 3 Packs and Crates. Congrats on all who received them!  

Physical Decks 

You have until the END OF this month, FEBRUARY, to claim all unclaimed physical decks. Go to ClaimHeroes.com to claim as soon as you can, because time is running out!  

First Strike Burn Mechanism: The C.E. Race Continues! 

The First Strike upgrade/burn mechanism continues! To do the upgrade, you burn 5 of a particular rarity to upgrade to the next higher rarity. You can also burn a complete set of either 20 Heroes or 20 Villains to upgrade to a Collector’s Edition variant. It’s a great way to upgrade your sets as you crack packs and fill in the gaps in your sets, while also shortening the circulating supply of Blockchain Heroes cards.   

Artifact Ascension Attempts! 

There are 100 of each Artifact type out there (3 types per Phase), many of which are still hiding in unopened packs. Based on the number of available Artifacts and those still hiding in unopened packs, we calculate there may end up being no more than 50 complete sets of Artifacts that would qualify for Ascension attempts. But wait, there’s more… check out the end of this Hero Report summary to see who was lucky tonight! 

Phase 3 Sales Closing Soon! 

The official sales window for Phase 3 packs will close on February 10th at 12pm EST, so be sure to get your Phase 3 packs before the window closes! 

BCH Presents… Stonk Wars! (aka Update 2.5) 

We are pleased to announce a new mini-set consisting of 10 New Heroes and Villains. They will be available in 3-card packs, for $5 in WAX each. There will only be 7,500 packs minted, with 6,500 of them available for sale on the market. (The other 1,000 are reserved for Nifty Box owners.) We are also happy to announce that these will be pre-minted, so there is no need to rush for early mints from the moment the sale starts (yay!). The Heroes and Villains featured in this series are as follows. 

Heroes:

  • Powerplay
  • Dogeberus
  • Master Control (…from Series 1)
  • Super Stomp (…from Series 1)
  • Elon Dusk 

Villains:

  • Nivlem the Voracious
  • Bottom Line
  • Shortadel
  • Robbing Hood
  • Grey Witch

 

During today’s livestream we revealed the Common, Uncommon, Rare, Legendary, Mythic, Classic, and Sticker variants for Powerplay, who appears to have hands made of, wait for it, diamonds!

Update 2.4 – A House Divided

We are pleased to introduce Allegiance tokens in the form of coats of arms! There are two separate Allegiance Coats of Arms tokens: Heroic Allegiance, which represents individual financial control, freedom from regulation, the right to privacy, and the power of the people; and Villainous Allegiance, which represents fiat currency, state authority, order, and justice. Now, the task before each of us now is, which side will you choose? We are asking all Blockchain Heroes holders to choose a side, Heroic or Villainous, and fill out the official form at the following link: 

PLEASE keep in mind the following information when making your final choice: We will be dropping rewards to holders of both Coats of Arms. However, note that the side that has the FEWER total members will receive MORE rewards! So if you think most people will choose Heroic, then maybe you should choose Villainous? Conversely, if you think most people will think like the previous sentence, then maybe you should choose Heroic instead…? So we ask you to think carefully about which side you want to join before submitting your form. One more thing to keep in mind is that your choice will also affect how you participate in future updates to the Blockchain Heroes Metaverse! (Hint: There will be rivalries!) Please make your choice (and submit the form!) by Wednesday, February 10, at 8pm EST. Good luck!  

Coming Soon… WAX Auctions on ETHEREUM! 

To commemorate the new WAX Auctions on Ethereum being released by the team at WAX, we are pleased to release the Rez’Phede 1/1 3D Trophy NFT. Check out the official reveal on the Hero Report livestream replay! 

The Nifty Box is SOLD OUT!

We are officially all sold out of both King and Star Nifty Boxes. The only place to get them now is on the secondary market, over at AtomicHub.io. Current memberships go through December 31, 2021. Congratulations to all current owners! 

Announcing Bitcoin Elite – The Definitive Bitcoin Collection

As we first announced last week, we are launching the first Bitcoin Elite Collection on February 21 at 12pm EST:

  • 3D 2009 NFT – 21-Minute Sale (random mints)
  • Limited Edition 21 Classic Edition (random mints)
  • 1/1 Elite Auction 

The Bitcoin Collection commemorates the creation and history of Bitcoin. This will be the most definitive, most [email protected] Bitcoin collection released to date. There will be 3 parts to the sale, which happen concurrently. First, there is a 21-minute 3D 2009 NFT sale. We will be limiting both the quantity and frequency for buying using timers to help keep things civil. This purchase is for a non-transferable token, NOT the NFT item itself. Then, when the sale is over, we will drop the actual 3D NFTs randomly to all who purchased during the 21-minute window. This will ensure that all buyers have a random chance for a low mint. For the second part of the sale, there will be a Limited Edition 21 Classic Edition, designed by a unique artist, who will be different for each month’s release. Vesa will be the artist for the first month (February). This part of the sale will be done just like the first part, with buyers first receiving a non-transferable token in their wallets, which is then used for the random drops of the 21 Limited Edition NFTs. Finally, the third part of the sale will be an Elite Auction for a VERY limited (1/1) version of the Limited Edition NFT. This first sale will kick off on February 21, 2021. You can learn more about the project and register for the mailing list over at the official website, TheBitcoinElite.com.
