Cardinal Entertainment announces the Q3-2021 launch of Zoombies, an innovative NFT minting opportunity built on Moonriver.
Inspired by the card collections found in games like Magic the Gathering and Hearthstone, plus the digital NFT minting mechanics of Raribles and Cryptokitties, Zoombies provides a unique gamified NFT experience for people looking for something more than just collecting NFT art. Players can mint, collect, trade and sell NFT zombie-themed trading cards and in-game ZOOM tokens, using Moonriver tokens (MOVR) as the digital currency for all transactions.
“I have been watching the evolution of Polkadot since late 2017, anticipating how we could enter this new ecosystem”, says Ryan Price, CEO of Cardinal Entertainment. “Moonriver gives us a low friction method to bring our live-tested, enhanced Cryptoz NFT minting platform to a new community of NFT collectors, and exposes us to the benefits of the Kusama platform with the strong support system PureStake provides. While creating NFTs directly on Kusama seemed a little complicated, we found Moonriver/Moonbeam offered a familiar development surface with well recognized Ethereum like conventions, a feature that will be an immediate benefit to our players and partners”
Cardinal Entertainment launched The Cryptoz NFT Universe in Q1-2021 on Binance’s Smart Chain and held the #1 BSCScan ERC721 daily volume tracker spot for a number of weeks, with over 20,000 holders and over 150,000 NFTs to date.
Armed with a list of lessons learned in the Cryptoz project launch, the Zoombie’s team will solve many of the challenges BSC Cryptoz faced and add some exciting enhancements to the original model, creating an exciting and unique NFT experience. “The response to Cryptoz was incredibly encouraging and we are very excited to build on that foundation and present an improved product on Moonriver and eventually Moonbeam.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Zoombies to the Moonbeam ecosystem, opening up new opportunities for digital collectibles that fit well into the emerging NFT ecosystem on Kusama and Polkadot,” said Francisco Javier Agosti, Director of Markets and Partnerships at Moonbeam. “Promising projects like Zoombies promote the growth of digital collectibles and help Moonbeam and Moonriver rapidly become a home for NFT projects.”
What is Zoombies?
Zombies is an infinite world of NFT collectible trading cards built on Rarity, Scarcity and Community.
The Zoombies World brings all the value and excitement of blockchain NFTs into a tidy free-to-play mix of predictable rules that result in unpredictable outcomes. Zoombies has something for everyone, and when luck strikes, it can take you out of this world! Zoombies is a full cycle token economy which allows players to mint, trade and burn NFTs alongside the ZOOM ERC-20 standard token for highly liquid value transfer.
What is Moonbeam?
Moonbeam is an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on the Polkadot network that makes it easy to build natively interoperable applications. This Ethereum compatibility allows developers to deploy existing Solidity smart contracts and DApp frontends to Moonbeam with minimal changes. Moonriver is its sister network that serves a similar use case on Kusama, but receives code deployments first and has a community focus.
As a parachain on the Polkadot network, Moonbeam will benefit from the shared security of the Polkadot relay chain and integrations with other chains that are connected to Polkadot. Currently in active development by PureStake, Moonbeam is expected to launch by Q3 2021.
