The summer is coming to an end, and we’ll soon embark on the four month build up to Christmas. But fear not, we’re soon going to give you the next best 12-day event to fill the gap.
The DGaming Festival
We’re pleased to announce we're upgrading the DGaming Store platform and adding the functionality for it to host item sales using the OpenSea api. To celebrate this release, we will be hosting a 12-day event which will be the most diverse sales event in the DGaming industry to date. The festival will start on August 26th.
The DGaming Sales Festival will feature unique NFT assets from at least 12 of the most popular blockchain gaming projects, as well as a number of daily giveaways for participants in the sale. The sale event will conclude with the launch of a presale for a highly-anticipated new game.
There will be multiple daily giveaways, and an overall giveaway at the end of the event. Winners will be determined by a sales leaderboard, with participants vying for the top spot based on their sales event participation. We also have a number of rare NFT items to giveaway to the most active participants.
The festival will also include lots of unique content for you to enjoy, with behind the scenes insights into your favourite DGaming projects.
If you’re not already aware, an NFT (Non-Fungible-Token) is a digital item which is used to create a unique digital scarcity and ownership. NFT’s can be deployed in games, or traded for digital value. Perhaps the most well-known example of an NFT sale, to date, is the Crypto Kitty that sold for 600 ETH (approx $170,000) in September 2018.
The sale of this cat-themed NFT was far from a one off event, with communities of people trading assets on a daily basis, and even making a career from it, as you may have seen in our recent feature story with Matty. One such project which allows users to own digital assets, Decentraland, recently recorded 149 transactions over a 7-day period, with $114,001 in assets traded.
We feel that the industry currently lacks a place where projects can reach a wider audience when launching their item sales. Our proven marketing expertise, and standing in the community will help to improve the reach of projects and the industry as a whole as it seeks mass adoption.
