The non-fungible token (NFT) sale of Guild of Guardians, an NFT-based role-playing game, has raised over $3 million, as it appears to be enthusiastic about the forthcoming title after they snatched up nearly all of the NFTs that were part of the founder’s sale.
It has been reported that the title raised $2 million in the first hour of the founder’s sale and $2.8 million in the span of 24 hours.
However, the sale featured a collection of playable in-game NFTs ranging from $200 to $100,000 in value. The NFTs will become playable once Guild of Guardians launches on mobile devices in the first half of 2022.
Derek Lau, the game lead for Guild of Guardians, said that pre-game registrations totaled 133,270.
“Over 50% of all sales came via referrals — indicating that the community was sharing with each other, and there is a real 'share-to-earn' aspect in place.”
Likewise, Yield Guild Games, which represents a collective of nearly 15,000 gamers and investors who generate yield from NFT-based games, was among the most prominent contributors to the founder’s sale, snatching up the “Mythic guild” NFT for $100,000.
Gabby Dizon, the founder of Yield Guild Games, said that Guild of Guardians “ticked all the right boxes” with respect to graphics, gameplay, mobile readiness, and guild systems”
“We are always looking for the next good play-to earn-games, and Guild of Guardians piqued our interest. We spoke to the team, and we're happy with what we found; they have polished graphics, interesting gameplay; we like that it is mobile-based and that they have the guild system [...]”
Thus, NFTs have been one of crypto’s most dominant storylines this year. Although sales are down 90% from the market peak, the outlook on the industry remains favorable as crypto-collectibles create new use cases.
