Top Digital Collectibles on WAX Blockchain of 2020

wax blockchain

The world of collectibles has changed. There was a time when the only place to trade collectibles was with a stack of dog-eared cards in the corner of the schoolyard. That was fun until you left school. eBay created a market that was always open and now covers everything from baseball cards to works of art. It’s a place where sellers can always find buyers, buyers can always find sellers, and everyone can find current prices. But even eBay still requires shipping goods, and buyers still need to hope that a rare item on offer is as genuine as the seller claims. Here are to top digital collectibles on WAX blockchain of 2020.

Digital Collectible Have Changed and Will Keep Changing

Digital collectibles have changed everything again. Instead of packing up a card or a figure into a box — the exchange takes place online. And instead of hoping that you haven’t accidentally bought a forgery, the blockchain provides an immutable record of ownership.

While Ethereum gets a lot of attention for artists seeking to distribute and sell their digital art, a blockchain called WAX has quietly become a leading distributor of digital collectibles that bring back the nostalgia of opening a “pack� of cards.

Known in the community as NFTs (non-fungible tokens) listed here are the ten best digital collectibles that came out on the WAX blockchain this year.

  1. Blockchain Heroes

Blockchain HeroesBlockchain Heroes demonstrated not only that a new intellectual property can succeed, but it also showed how to build and engage with a community and innovate technology.

The collection of colorful blockchain heroes and villains are dynamic and vibrant, but they’re also set in a dramatic universe where the evil Centralizers seek to wrestle control from the people. Events bring players together on Telegram, while gamification allows collectors to improve their items.

  1. KOGs

  1. Topps Garbage Pail Kids

Garbage Pail Kids The Garbage Pail Kids were the first major intellectual property to reach the WAX blockchain. First released as cards by baseball card maker Topps in 1985, the return of the property in digital form on its 35th anniversary showed that digital collectibles could work even for major brands.

The theme of a set of collectibles didn’t have to focused only on the digital world. Powered by a wave of nostalgia, the first series of collectibles sold out in 28 hours.

  1. Bitcoin Origins

  1. GoPepe

GoPepeGoPepe claims to have the “dankest collectibles� on WAX. The team behind the Pepe-the-frog-inspired collection is anonymous, ensuring that all of the attention remains on the cards and their artwork. And on the cards’ burn mechanism.

Although the initial release was for 160,000 cards, 140,000 of them are burnable. Collect five identical cards, and you can upgrade them to a rarer card, burning away the five you’ve collected.

It makes digital collecting even hotter and gave makers of digital collectibles a new template.

Uplift.art is unique in its attempt to give collectors genuine works of art, created by artists, and supported by the WAX blockchain. Collectors can still trade and burn their way towards rarities but they can also keep and admire some valuable artworks.

Javelin Sports Makes Returning to Sports Games COVID-19 Friendly

Javelin Sports announces the launch of its new Health Checklist feature on their mobile app. In the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic, sports clubs and teams are struggling to safely return to sport. For that reason, Javelin Sports has integrated three new features into its sports management app: health screening, waiver signing, and contact tracing. These features protect sports organizations by reducing their liability and ensuring that coaches and athletes are healthy as well as aware of potential outbreaks before they occur. 

Javelin Sports’ in-app health screening process is a series of checks that enables coaches to track the health of their players. The app also features contact tracing by tracking all individuals that attend an event. Lastly, their mandatory waiver signing allows sports organizations to avoid risk and reduce liability. These three areas allow Javelin Sports to reduce the risk of a COVID-19 outbreak in an organization and help clubs if an outbreak does occur.

Launched on June 11, 2020, Javelin Sports’ new Health Checklist feature has aided hundreds of sports organizations as they return to sport. “The thing we’ve found that is most important in reducing the chance of an outbreak occurring is that organizations demonstrate from the top level that they are managing the risk of transmission. This, in turn, helps foster a culture of players holding each other accountable,� says Justin Ford, CEO at Javelin Sports.
