The latest project enables users to mint 6500 one-of-a-kind NFTs in its ecosystem
Splinterlands, the globally leading blockchain video game company, has announced its upcoming exclusive NFT project, Runi. The project will launch on the Ethereum blockchain (ERC-20) and enable users to mint 6500 one-of-a-kind, unrepeatable NFTs in its ecosystem.
Users who purchase the NFT will be able to connect their Ethereum wallet within Splinterlands in order to stake their Runi. This process will allow the Runi owner to receive a one-of-a-kind profile picture of their Runi in the Splinterlands game, as well as use it as an exclusive in-game promo card that can be used in battles. Each Runi consists of 6 unique traits that make up the core aesthetic of the NFT.
Splinterlands CEO, Jesse “Aggroed” Reich, sees this as an exciting next step for the company, which continues to see hundreds of new users signing up daily.
“We’ve always been forward-thinking at Splinterlands and constantly work to give our players the best gaming experience possible,” he said. “The mint of our newest Runi NFTs will allow us to continue to provide new and exciting user experiences, while expanding the visibility of Splinterlands onto the Ethereum chain. We couldn’t be more excited about this project and the groundbreaking cross-chain interoperability that will be introduced with the launch of Runi.”
Aly Madhavji, Managing Partner of Blockchain Founders Fund, a leading Venture Capital fund that backs Splinterlands, also expressed his support.
“We are proud to be supporting Splinterlands as they continue to expand and evolve, bringing more variety and depth to their games,” he said. “Their passion and dedication to delivering new products to their ecosystem further establishes them as a leading innovator in the blockchain gaming space.”
The Runi whitelisting process will go live on September 22, 2022, where users can reserve Runi NFTs and receive a discount on the NFTs by using $VOUCHER tokens. The ability to join the whitelist will be available directly on the Splinterlands website. Subsequently, the NFTs will be available directly for purchase with $ETH on OpenSea in late October.
