How will Blockies work?
Hey, as we delve deeper into the development of the project, and with our first mint date nearing in distance, we decided it was time to write a new medium article.
We’ve introduced you to Blockies, told you about Blockies but not the specifics in regards to their function.
First and foremost, Blockies NFTs will NOT grant you access to the Blockies Metaverse Experience (aka Blockieverse). Blockies will simply serve as the playable character within the Blockieverse. They will still be able to be listed and traded and vice versa and the airdrop will still go on as usual but you will need a ticket to actually access the Blockieverse.
Our upcoming mint will be for the Blockies Tickets, if your wallet doesn’t hold a ticket – you won’t be able to play. Tickets will be split into 3 categories:
- Dystopia (47.5% of supply)
- Utopia (47.5% of supply)
- All Access (5% of supply)
The tickets are pretty self-explanatory, but just for further clarification, I’ll go over the main logic.
The Dystopia tickets will only allow you to access dystopian locations within the Blockieverse, which follow more of an “End of the World” type of theme.
The All-Access tickets will be the rarest, with only 5% of ticket supply falling into that category, and if you haven’t taken the hint already – they will provide access to all locations available in the Blockieverse, whether Dystopian or Utopian.
Of course, you will need Blockies NFTs to play and our solution to this is simple – airdrops.
We will be taking a snapshot of all ticket-holding wallets on Monday, 10th January at 12:00pm UTC. Blockies will be airdropped at random in a 1:1 ratio with the number of tickets each wallet holds. Which will be just in time for the demo announcement.
Our current mint date is estimated to be on Saturday, 8th January, although we’re still working to finalise specifics and this is subject to change. If all goes as planned, the snapshot will go ahead and our roadmap will be accelerated at a much speedier pace than current.
Oh, one last thing. Thank you all so much for the support and positive feedback in regards to the project over the past weeks. This past week alone Blockies following has grown by over 30x of what it was before and we really have nobody else to thank for that apart from you guys – our community. If any of you have suggestions or feedback on how we’re handling things, don’t hesitate to use the respective channels in the Discord Server.
2022 IS BLOCKIES YEAR 🎉
