NFTs (non-fungible tokens) have shown rapid growth and popularity over the past year. According to a DappRadar industry report, NFT sales volumes totaled approximately $24.9 billion in 2021 compared to around $94.9 million in 2020. To start 2022, OpenSea, the world’s first and largest NFT marketplace, topped $5 billion in trading volume for the month of January, the highest sales figure of all time.
The increase in popularity has been driven by significant trends in the market, including celebrity endorsements, collectibles, play-to-earn games and VIP events, all centered around building communities and offering value to token holders.
“At the core of our success has been our ability to grow and reward the gaming communities that we continue to serve every day,” said Jud Hannigan, CEO of Allied Esports. “EPICBEAST is a natural extension of what we’ve been doing for the past seven years and allows us to leverage the benefits of digital ownership and the next generation of the web in a way that creates immense pride in community membership. We have incredible confidence in not only delivering on our roadmap but integrating EPICBEAST holders into our future plans and success.”
EPICBEAST’s Stage 1 roadmap is highlighted by the June launch of a line of collectible figurines based on select NFTs from the collection. Holders of EPICBEAST NFTs that share traits with the collectible figurines will receive royalties from each sale that takes place worldwide as 100% of profits are delivered back to the community.
In addition, EPICBEAST holders will receive customizable merch, including an initial drop at no cost; access to a VIP welcome party at HyperX Arena Las Vegas and other IRL events; and a monthly Twitch show, produced by Allied Esports, dedicated to the EPICBEAST community.
