February 2022 Update: NFT Launch Edition

Hello! 

Lucky Races has been working hard and we want to let you know what we’re up to.  The journey over the past six months from idea to product hasn’t always been an easy one – in the midst of the pandemic our team has had to deal with death, moving into new homes, and the everyday stresses that come with trying to create something out of nothing.

We’re so proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish: we’ve created the first multiplayer racing game on the blockchain with actual player agency.  We’ve also made 10,000 incredible Original Racer NFTs that will be the seeds of our Racerverse.  And we’ll be selling keys to those Racers on six different blockchains.

Summary:

We’ve set a launch date for our multi-chain NFT sale, received a grant from one of our technology partners, brought on another team-member full time, added rare materials to our art pipeline, created a DAO that will give $SLIVER additional governance utility, and made it easier to buy our NFTs for those without crypto experience.

Details:

  • Original Racer NFTs
    • Launch Dates:
      • Presale Begins – February 15th
      • Public Sale Begins – February 17th
    • First of its kind: Multi Chain Key Sale
      • Selling ERC-1155 Keys on 6 Blockchains and sending the final ERC-721 NFTs back on Ethereum:
        • Sell Keys on Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, Fantom, Arbitrum and Optimism
        • When redeemed, Lucky Races sends the Original Racer ERC-721 NFT to the redeemer on the Ethereum network.
    • Art news: Added “rare” materials to our art pipeline: gold, silver, copper, hyper glass, etc. – having these rare materials will increase the value of our entire collection, since rare items typically re-sell at a huge premium.  And we brought on Tom Donaldson full time to help with 3D art!
    • First-time buyers: we anticipate some of our buyers will be first-time NFT users.  We’re exploring an integration with Fortmatic and Moonpay to give users an option to set up a crypto wallet login via e-mail address and get the necessary crypto to buy an Original Racer with a credit card.

      • We were also asked to do an interview series with them to provide a deep dive on the team and why we chose Polygon
  • $SLIVER Currency
    • We expanded $SLIVER to include governance abilities.  
    • Now the Lucky Races DAO will help guide the development of the game. 
    • $SLIVER gives you a vote in the DAO.
