Bad Crypto Podcast – The Hero Report #37 Summary (March 24, 2021)
State of the Megaverse
The Series 1 pack opened rate has reached 90.41% (9194/10000 Hero Packs, 2107/2500 Titan Packs opened), and… the Electric Genesis still hasn’t been found! There are only 806 packs remaining, and with the Blue Wizard’s bounty offer of $20,000 USD for the Electric Genesis still standing, the excitement of opening Series 1 Hero Packs is reaching peak levels! There are also Secret Smoke 1/1 cards still remaining among both the remaining Series 1 Hero and Titan Packs. As for Series 2 packs, there are 70.13% opened (7640/10218 Hero Packs, 2697/4158 Titan Packs, 1863/3021 Gallery Crates, 2387/8000 Mini Packs). (*Note: The 70.13% does not include Mini Packs.)
First Strike (BCH 2.0) Upgrade/Burn Mechanisms Continue!
- First Strike Burn Upgrade
The burn upgrade mechanism is still active, which means you can burn any 5 cards of a particular variation to upgrade them to a random card of the next higher variation. Remember, this only applies to First Strike (Series 2) cards. Do not burn Series 1 cards!
- Upgrade for Collector’s Edition Cards
For the second First Strike burn upgrade mechanism for Collector’s Edition cards, you must burn a complete set of either 20 Heroes or 20 Villains to upgrade to a Collector’s Edition variant. You can upgrade your sets as you crack packs and make sets, while also shortening the circulating supply of Blockchain Heroes cards. As of today’s Hero Report, there are only 61 possible Hero CE Upgrades still available, and only 62 Villain CE Upgrades still available! Check your collections at https://heroes.atomichub.io/tools/book/officialhero/ and do your burns at https://heroes.atomichub.io/tradeup/bcheroes-series2-collectors. Good luck!
As of today, 5650/7500 (75.33%) Stonk Wars packs have been opened. A full set includes a total of 10 Heroes and Villains, as this is a mini-set.
Artifact Ascension Attempts!
There have been 20 attempts thus far, but only ONE successful Ascension! Anyone who makes an attempt will have a 90% chance of getting an animated Ascended Artifact, and a 10% chance of getting an Artifact of Ascension, which gives the owner the opportunity to appear on their very own Blockchain Hero (or Villain) NFT! We will keep this event going until the release of Blockchain Heroes 3.0. You can still find the Artifacts inside packs, as well as the secondary market.
Motespawns and Motes
Last week we introduced some new creatures that have been discovered on the blockchain: Motespawns. At the most basic level, Motespawns are entities that generate mysterious particles called Motes. Based on what we know so far, Motespawns not only generate Motes, but they also have utility, which has yet to be revealed. One analogy is the concept of “land” in other blockchain universes and the rewards they generate. Some of you have already received Motes and/or Motespawns based on your declared Allegiance and degree of completion of border sets. For now, it may be best to think of these new entities as the currency of the Blockchain Heroes Universe.
$MEME Coin Collaboration
Our collaboration with $MEME coin is proceeding full speed ahead, with an expected launch in early April! During today’s Hero Report Joel spent some time going over the website in detail and explained how to “farm” pineapples on the dontbuymeme.com website. We recommend watching the replay of the Hero Report so that you can appreciate the visuals. To participate in the $MEME project, you will first need to buy $MEME coin. Then, you stake them to earn Pineapples. For every $MEME you stake, you earn 1 Pineapple per day. Then, once you’ve accumulated enough Pineapples, you can spend them on various NFTs that become available. Through our collaboration, you will be able to purchase our newest Hero, Pint Size:
- Pint Size Common Variant – x/250: Selling for 5 Pineapples and .01 ETH
- Pint Size Epic Variant – x/100: Selling for 15 Pineapples and 0.1 ETH
- Legendary – x/10: Selling for 45 Pineapples and 1.0 ETH
- Action Card – 1/1(!): This variant will go up for Auction
Visit dontbuymeme.com to learn more about the project and also check out more of the amazing art you can find for sale on the site. As for the $MEME coin itself, you can purchase it on Uniswap. This will mark our first foray into the Ethereum NFT ecosystem. We will reveal more information next week!
$HERO Token Update
We are pleased to announce that $HERO HQ is still alive and strong! We have no intention of changing our plans with $HERO, so look forward to more fun events that are only available by holding $HERO. Remember you will need at least 50 $HERO in your wallet to access additional channels in our Discord server. Please join us there for more details and all kinds of fun: Badco.in/discord
Upland Collectibles Collaboration and Pack Sale
Our upcoming collaboration with Upland Collectibles will kick off as scheduled from April 6! As announced last week, we are doing the sale in two stages, so that everyone has an opportunity to participate regardless of timezone. First, at 12 noon EST, the first half of the packs will go on sale, and then 12 hours later, at midnight EST, the second half of the packs will go on sale. Then, the pack opening will be made available from 12 noon EST on the following day, April 7 (exactly 24 hours after the first sale). All packs are pre-minted, so there is no need to rush to open packs. As announced last week, the set will include 59 Director Block Explorers in 5 rarities: Common (1 star), Rare (2 stars), Epic (3 stars), Legendary (4 stars), and Mythic (5 stars). Similarly, we will be introducing 42 Blockchain Heroes explorers, which will also come in the 5 rarities of Common (1 star), Rare (2 stars), Epic (3 stars), Legendary (4 stars), and Mythic (5 stars) variants. For these, there will be 10 of each Mythic rarity variant, and these will be able to be introduced into the Upland universe as actual, playable characters. We will also be awarding the following special NFTs along the way:
- Prizes (think “in-game items”) (Rare: x/25)
- Stamps (Rare: x/25)
- Heroes Illustrations (BCH HQ etc.) – (2 Rarities: Sketch and TBD)
- 3D Explorers (Mythic: x/8)
- Postcards (2 Rarities (TBD): x/10)
In addition, we will also be including Sticker variants with a mint of x100. Today we revealed some of the community Director and Blockchain Hero based Block Explorer NFTs for Upland, along with some of the Prize, Stamp, and Motion NFTs.
Fifth (and Final!) Uplands Promo Drop!
The 5th official Uplands promo drop is for Lady Lightning. See our tweet for more details. You can win 1 of 5 Mythic variations of the Lady Lightning Block Explorer. As for the other rarities, please check out the Upland Discord Channel.

NFTuesdays on Clubhouse, 9PM EST
There was no NFTuesday on the Clubhouse app (currently iOS only) this week due to the team’s traveling schedule. We plan to continue from next week. Hope to see you there!
$HERO and the Roll Hack
As you may have heard, the Roll wallet was hacked recently and many projects lost a lot of value. But rest assured we are still strong and proceeding full speed ahead.
