Bad Crypto Podcast – The Hero Report #40 Summary (April 21, 2021)
State of the Megaverse
The Series 1 pack opened rate has reached 90.63% (9209/10000 Hero Packs, 2120/2500 Titan Packs opened). What’s more, the Electric Genesis STILL hasn’t been found! This means that the Blue Wizard’s bounty offer of $20,000 USD for the Electric Genesis still stands! There are also a number of Secret Smoke 1/1 cards still remaining among both the remaining Series 1 Hero and Titan Packs. As for Series 2 packs, there are 71.38% opened (77277/10218 Hero Packs, 2794/4158 Titan Packs, 1897/3021 Gallery Crates, 2615/8000 Mini Packs). (*Note: The 71.38% 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. 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, 5799/7500 (77.32%) Stonk Wars packs have been opened, showing a very healthy open rate. Remember that 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! There were no new Ascension attempts this week. 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.
Update 2.7 – COMING SOON
With Update 2.7, we are planning to introduce utility to the recently released Motespawns and Motes. We are working as hard as we can to get everything ready, and to be honest, we could use even more manpower, so if you know any good EOSIO developers, or just any high-skilled developers in other blockchain fields, please reach out to us! Stay tuned for the next update!
$MEME Coin Collaboration
Our collaboration with $MEME coin is coming very soon, with an announcement from the $MEME Coin team soon and an expected launch of April 24th at 1:37 PM (EST). The website is dontbuymeme.com. We recommend watching the replay of the Hero Report so that you can appreciate the visuals, especially our new Hero, Pint Size, which is the very first Blockchain Hero to be minted on the Ethereum blockchain! To participate in the $MEME project, you first need to purchase some $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:
- Common Variant – x/250: Selling for 15 Pineapples and .01 ETH
- Epic Variant – x/100: Selling for 30 Pineapples and 0.1 ETH
- Legendary Variant – 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.

Upland Collectibles Update
We are happy to announce that the Upland collaborations sale was a huge success, with 53.06% (5306/10000) of the Hero Packs opened and 66.21% (6621/10000) of the Titan Packs opened thus far. We have received great positive feedback from members of both the Blockchain Heroes and Upland communities. We are also pleased to announce that all of the Upland Collectibles cards are now able to be staked for AETHER on R-Planet (rplanet.io). You can also trade your accumulated AETHER for WAX or other tokens at wax.alcor.exchange.
The Bitcoin Collection
Today marked the successful launch of the April release of the Bitcoin Elite collection. The sale is over, but the auction for the 1/1 VESA NFT is still ongoing. Good luck to all who bid! Remember that all Bitcoin Collection pieces, including the promos, are stakeable on R-Planet!
Today we took a peek at the Blockchain Heroes space in TheUplift, which is a continual work in progress, and growing rapidly! Our very own Zach is working hard to build out our space as quickly as possible, and he is also working to expand our land, so if you happen to be a landowner nearby or adjacent to the Blockchain Heroes land, then we are happy to work with you on a trade.
