The Hero Report #32 Summary (February 17, 2021)
Before we get to the State of the Megaverse, we want to strongly remind everyone who has yet to claim their physical Blockchain Heroes decks of cards that you have only 18 days left from today, i.e., the END OF FEBRUARY, to claim all unclaimed decks. Go to ClaimHeroes.com to claim as soon as you can, because time is running out! You can get more details in the livestream replay, and feel free to ask us directly if you have any questions.
$Hero HQ Coming Soon!
The launch of our social token, HERO, is imminent. We will be opening a new Discord server for this project, so stay tuned to our social channels (Telegram, YouTube, Nifty Show, Hero Report, etc.) for more details to come soon!
State of the Megaverse
The Series 1 pack opened rate has climbed up to 90.02% (9171/10000 Hero Packs, 2081/2500 Titan packs opened). As promised, since we crossed the 90% opened threshold, our very own Zach gave away one Series 1 Hero Pack to one lucky listener during tonight’s Hero Report. Also, don’t forget the Electric Genesis has still not dropped (there are only 829 packs remaining!), AND there’s also the Blue Wizard’s bounty offer of $20,000 USD for the Electric Genesis, *if* you could ever bring yourself to part with it! As for Series 2 packs, there are 65.20% opened (7079/10218 Hero Packs, 2522/4158 Titan Packs, 1742/3021 Gallery Crates, 1833/8000 Mini Packs).
First Strike (BCH 2.0) Burn Mechanism: The C.E. Race Continues!
The First Strike upgrade/burn mechanism continues! To upgrade, 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. You can do your burns here: https://heroes.atomichub.io/tradeup/bcheroes-series2-collectors
Artifact Ascension Attempts!
We saw a new attempt this week, but it was not successful. So we have had a total of 16 attempts at Artifact Ascension so far, and 1 successful victory! We plan to keep this event live until the release of Blockchain Heroes 3.0.
Gone in 35 seconds! The Stonk Wars set is a mini-set, with a total of 10 New Heroes and Villains. The packs contain 3 cards, for $5 in WAX each. There were only 7,500 packs minted, and all 6,500 that went on sale sold out in only 35 seconds! You can still find unopened packs on the market, but there’s already been a surprisingly large number of packs opened (58%!). As for the Golden Cards, which we briefly mentioned last week, we have created exactly TWO (yes, only 2!) of each Hero and Villain. These will be given away through a new event we are simply calling “Collections,” in which you will receive points based on how many different, complete Stonk Wars sets that you have in your account. The breakdown of the point system is as follows, and the more points you have, the greater your chances of receiving a Golden Card. You can reach a maximum of 15 points total if you collect all 5 complete sets.
- Common Collection = 1 Point
- Uncommon Collection = 2 Points
- Rare Collection = 3 Points
- Epic Collection = 4 Points
- Legendary Collection = 5 Points
Remember: Only COMPLETE Stonk Wars collections of ALL 10 Heroes and Villains will be eligible for points. The Diamond Hands NFTs are NOT included; just the 10 Heroes and Villains. The deadline for set completion is 12pm EST on Wednesday, February 25th. Then, soon after the deadline has passed and all wallets have been confirmed, the 20 Golden Cards will be randomly dropped to the lucky wallets. Good luck collecting!
Update 2.4 – Sides Have Been Chosen
We are pleased to announce that all official Allegiance Badges have been assigned. Thanks to all who submitted your entries. If you did not receive one yet, then you either did not submit your choice in time, or you entered your wallet address incorrectly. However, don’t worry if you did not receive a badge. You will simply be considered “neutral” in the Blockchain Heroes Metaverse (think Switzerland!).
Update 2.6 – Announcement Next Week
As most of you are already aware, we love to continue bringing you more value to the assets you’ve already purchased. So we have already planned Updates 2.6 (next week!), 2.7, and 2.8, so be on the lookout! We also have many more unique ideas already in the pipeline, including our next series (to be continued…).
New NFTshirts Available!
Travis has been hard at work this week adding new t-shirts to our physical t-shirt shop (NFTshirts.co), including Binary Balls (watch the livestream replay if you’re curious about this one), Bitcoin Bro, and Dogeberus.
We are VERY happy to announce our new collaboration with Upland Collectibles. We had some Blockchain Heroes developed into “Block Explorers” in Upland. Block Explorers are the characters used to explore the Upland universe. Today we showed the front and back art designs for the 5 promotional NFTs we have designed. These new Block Explorer promo NFTs will be dropped to everyone holding at least 5 Hero cards or a Nifty Box membership in their wallet. Moreover, the Mythic variants of these new Block Explorers can actually be used in the Upland universe! As for the other variants, they are also not simply novelty NFTs, because they can be displayed within Upland as NFTs. That’s right, you can show them off as artwork within Upland! This event begins on March 30, 2021.
PSA: Creating a WAX Cloud Wallet in 30 Seconds or Less
Since many of you may be visiting here for the first time from Upland, we would like to direct you to the easiest way to create a new WAX Cloud Wallet. Just go to wax.io and you’ll be taken to a site that introduces WAX. Then click on “Create a Wallet” to get to the sign-up page. You can use just about any email address or any of your social media accounts to sign up. Once you have your wallet, you can go to AtomicHub.io to check out the marketplace and also purchase packs when new products are released.
Announcing Bitcoin Elite – The Definitive Bitcoin Collection
As we announced last week, we are launching the first Bitcoin Elite Collection this coming Sunday, 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 a 3-part sale. First is a 21-minute 3D 2009 NFT sale, at a price of $199.00 USD in WAX. We will be limiting sales to 1 purchase per 3 minutes, just so everyone has a chance. 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. Second is the sale of the Limited Edition 21 Classic Edition, designed by VESA for this first (February) release. Note that there are ONLY 21 of this Limited Edition NFT item, and the price for each is $999.00 USD in WAX. This part of the sale will be done just like the first, 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. Third is an Elite Auction for a VERY limited (1/1) version of the Limited Edition NFT. The highest bidder wins! You can learn more about the project and register for the mailing list over at the official website, TheBitcoinElite.com. Tonight we also showed a special video message from the artist himself, VESA.
The event happens LIVE on Sunday, February 21st at 12pm EST, and we invite all of you to tune in and enjoy the fun, even if you don’t plan on making a purchase or bid. (Programming note: We will go live on YouTube 30 minutes in advance of the sale.)
King of Quotes Announcement
We are pleased to announce a brand new project called King of Quotes, created by some friends of ours. While the release date has not yet been announced, you can find some promotional bundles on AtomicHub if you search for them. We are also happy to announce that we will be dropping the King of Quotes “Satoshi Nakamoto” card to King Nifty Boxes, while Star Nifty Boxes will be getting the “Steve Jobs” card. We also plan to have them come on the Nifty Show in the near future, so be on the lookout! You can also see previews of the promotional NFTs by checking out the replay of the Hero Report livestream.
We Need Help!
While we absolutely love working in the NFT space, it turns out that we can’t keep up with everything that is happening! So we are looking for an official “intern” to help us with the following tasks:
- Keep up with coming projects
- Locate potential Nifty Box drops that will add value to all Nifty Box holders
- Find amazing artists that we can feature, interview, or even collaborate with
If you feel you are up to these tasks, then submit your application at: Nifty.show/intern
Free Gallery Crate Drop!
In celebration of our collaboration with Upland Collectibles, tonight we dropped a free Upland promotional card to all Hero Report livestream participants. Congrats to all who attended!
Thanks to everyone who joined today’s Hero Report, and see you all next week!
