A rather large write up today, first going through a Unboxing & burn blend use case of the brand new Robotech WAX collection. Afterwards ill be going over scheduled NFT launches and events from the 22nd-27th.
Bit of a backstory on this NFT line according to Wikipedia:
Robotech is originally an anime Robotech (1985) is an original story adapted with edited content and revised dialogue from the animation of three different mecha anime series: Super Dimension Fortress Macross (1982–1983) Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross (1984) Genesis Climber MOSPEADA (1983–1984).
Prior to the release of the TV series, the name Robotech was used by model kit manufacturer Revell on their Robotech Defenders line in the mid-1980s. The line consisted of mecha model kits imported from Japan and featured in anime titles such as Super Dimension Fortress Macross (1982), Super Dimension Century Orguss (1983) and Fang of the Sun Dougram (1981). The kits were originally intended to be a marketing tie-in to a similarly named comic book series by DC Comics, which was cancelled after only two issues.
At the same time, Harmony Gold licensed the Macross TV series for direct-to-video distribution in 1984, but their merchandising plans were compromised by Revell's prior distribution of the Macross kits. In the end, both parties signed a co-licensing agreement and the Robotech name was adopted for the TV syndication of Macross combined with Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross (1984) and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA (1983)
Harmony Gold and funimation a division of sonny still own the rights to the franchise.
I'm more familiar with this franchise from their videogames and the secondary current DC comic based continuity. It appears they still are making games and this NFT line is scheduled to happen before the Nintendo switch game launch later this year.
Though the series is not the biggest name but its nice to see a IP that was worked on by DC, Nintendo, & funimation end up as NFTs on the WAX blockchain.
The NFT collection consists of over 200 NFTs with builds
Wow I was actually quite excited for this I bought a few packs 3 small packs for $10 USD and one $50 USD 60 count pack. So ill of course open the expensive packs first.
The pack came with 60 build card NFTs as its contents
Damn that's a lot of NFTs now lets look into some build systems,
The burn system is where the real luck comes in here as each build has a varying rarity. The rarity has a corresponding odds when you blend two Robotech build cards of the same type you have a % chance of it resulting in each. This particular instance resulted in...
Results: Bronze No21 which has the odds of
The back of the NFT
as you see the NFT i just created can be combined with more builds of the same type to generate more valuable assets only obtainable through the burn use case.
I will say if you wish to use this blend system like the lucky airdrop receiver today may want to, you will need to stake WAX for CPU or wait for the publicly available pool of resources to regenerate.
When large collections like this launch its good to have staked WAXP for CPU and NET resources the publicly available resources are finite once they are gone you have to wait for them to replenish when the server resets.
any way the lucky reader receiving the airdrop will get 2 Robotech build NFTs, as shown above these can be combined to receive a much more valuable NFT.
you may combine said assets or open your packs here.
the odds may be small but effectively the airdrop today contains anything from $1 in NFTs to potentially $40 on the current highest market listing for this build.
I picked a larger build with the top three rarities undiscovered to airdrop effectively this means that the recipient stands a real chance of receiving a yet to be created NFT worth $100 or more.
If you receive the airdrop and have an issue with resources I can try to help with that but again ill point out that there is a public pool of CPU and NET the resources needed to blend if its not working try the next day.
Why I do this?
By doing these airdrops and write ups I'm giving you the reader tools and info needed to use you existing knowledge of blockchain to profit on the new wave of mass adoption of NFTs.
Sine you use hive you have a clear advantage over the general public NFT mass adoption is currently happening, Bringing completely new users to blockchain.
Those of us that have been using blackchin tech for a while now have a clear advantage we understand the separate systems know which exchanges to use how to buy sell and send crypto. Every fan just getting into the NFT market will be playing catch up for a while WAX is where alot of the newb money has been going.
Hive is damn impressive but we struggle with the eco chamber issue and new user adoption. If we play this NFT adoption wave just right not only can we profit but Hive stand the chance of getting a missive influx of new users.
my hope is tech everyone to fish as appose to just giving a fish a day, it doesn't matter to me if you just keep the NFT sell it utilize it as I outlined but I appreciate it if you do.
We where all new to blockchain once and this comunity is great at helping one another. NFTs where something I struggled with months ago, now I'm fairly well versed in the majority of systems markets ect.
The next Mass adoption wave will be NFT oriented the more of us that understand these systems the better. Because this is just the beginning and its starting to pick up speed, knowing that WAX and HIVE are loosely connected via splinterlands and rising star NFTs odds are the market will eventually take note.
Meaning we will soon be answering questions on the basics again the more we know about NFTs blockchain games the better. I really dont have time for games with the research and my job taking up the majority of every day but, I study these games get them to run and get a baser understanding of each.
Because I like to pay it forward I was helped as a noob several times, I still get dumb questions answered for this patience and help I'm very grateful and try to help if I understand the issue enough to do so.
News for the upcoming week
This is some week we have ahead in the EOSIO NFT community, Graffiti kings packs launch on the 22nd. this is a R2 Partner. R2 has a previous collection many of you may be struggling to unload Mutant Rockers.
That collection will likely soon be seeing an uptick in sale price, their burn use case has been active for some time now, however there hasn't been motivation to burn to get their rarest assets other then resale. R2s next move is usually to enable rplanet staking of the Rarest assets, as well as collection completion rewards.
My apologies it took so long but soon you should see pack prices take off again for mutant rockers. As its also a good opportunity to buy Graffiti kings packs when they launch on the 22nd.
It may even be worth attending the launch for a number of reasons, the cheap packs start at $5 it may take 2 months but they will eventually sell for $25 or more.
The thing I didn't account for in my math last time is the influx of new projects. Causing the timeline to be a bit longer then original estimates.
Graffiti kings pack will have the free pack ability and a golden ticket system which is something brand new. Golden tickets according to their site "If you are lucky to find a Golden ticket from one of the Graffiti Kings trading card packs, you can redeem it for a ONE-OF-A-KIND hand-sculpted and hand-painted figurine."
Just another example of IRL NFT merchandise, Golden tickets are a possible driving force for initial sale or resale its worth attempting to purchase at launch.
details for graffiti kings collection and exact launch time in your area.
Rplanet launches their mining rig packs on the 22nd as well, this collections for the big dog investors I throw 100s of dollars in to the NFT market daily, the Rplanet NFT packs will almost be to expensive for me after the initial sale from the company meaning I cant afford to pay over $500 for a pack of NFTs.
details on launch here
Rplanet is one of the power players on WAX with sales of single NFTs in their collection selling for thousands of dollars. Like alien worlds its a company to watch because their Dapp is very popular and the AETHER crypto the Rplanet crypto like TLM will likely shoot up in value soon they have mining and land plots already functioning and they seem to be speeding through their roadmap.
Ill be airdropping slakeable NFTs for Rplanet you can trade out generated AETHER here. however todays all Robotech
NFTs staked through Rplanet generate AETHER every hour AETHER has an NFT minting burn incentive. Its highly volatile due to the burn and staking rates being so close.
Hodl god has New NFTs and dragon eggs launching on the 25th On WAX another great WAX game with NFTs transferable 2 and from game its a live game with a rumble pit style multiplayer. also a 3d blockchain game its rather impressive to be honest. Detils on launch
Splinterlands has a big announcement scheduled for digicon on the 27th this is unusual to say the least very hush hush I'm sure the news will be a game changer pun intended. Seriously though I'm sure its rather important information on potential changes my guess something to do with untamed packs reaching their end soon.
only a little under 250,000 untamed packs left
What I'm smoking
President OG is on the menu and in my lungs today, an indica cross of Bubble Gum and OG Kush. Damn strong specimen testing at 17.9% THC
get high sell higher that's my motto
Free NFT 1 time airdrop URL
I try to include a single claim airdrop URL for WAX wallet users containing free NFTs, It may only be claimed by the first lucky person to click the link. After claimed once the URL will no longer be active. The lucky reader should receive 5 NFTs if you received less then 5 check your whitelist settings.
once claimed please let other readers know in the comments it helps
If you missed my airdrop Robotech is giving out free NFTs here
perhaps interested in purchasing any of my NFTs from my ever expanding collection you may do so here.
My stock constantly rotates so it changes daily
Other WAX projects to check out
Dark country a WAX dapp game like splinterlands a bit of a pain to sett up but this referral will give us both a pack of their NFTs upon completion of account set up. This is a fun game but you will need to download Itch to play the game but after that and the set up which I had to ditch Brave Browser for it to work the first time. The game is fairly fun think gothic diablo style card game based in a western theme so crocodiles and grizzly bears meets witches and zombies all armed to the teeth with colt revolvers and shotgun chainsaws.
