Most recognize the word “blockchain” through its references from Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). However, the currencies and their underlying technology have since grown far more significant, now including the multimillion-dollar nonfungible tokens (NFTs) that are taking the world by storm today. Unfortunately, collectors now face a new problem: determining which NFT projects are worth investing in. As digital artists release new NFT collections (sometimes on a weekly basis), it can be hard to know which releases may be the next CryptoPunks and which will fall by the wayside.
That said, NFTs, in general, have come a long way since their early days of being just digital art for collectors. Fast forward a few years, and many of these same projects come with an intricate storyline, adding to their overall value. After all, many collectors agree that it can be more fun to collect something when they are buying a piece of history or entrance into a community.
Bitcoin Billionaires became one of the first cryptocurrency-themed games on the planet today. In fact, since its launch in 2014, the game has been downloaded over 10 million times, with an overall user rating of 4.8/5.0 on the App Store. Bitcoin Billionaires has since been reborn in a way that is believed to be more epic, even surprising the players that have been involved with the game since the beginning.
As a result, the team has announced an NFT collection directly inspired by the art and avatars from their original mobile game, with new designs, species, and decorations. However, for those new to this project, the platform assures users that they do not need to have any previous familiarity to get enjoyment out of their latest drop.
It’s launch time
Bitcoin Billionaires are pixel art NFTs, each having its own original features. While on the surface, they are simply assets that live on the Ethereum blockchain, on another, they are inhabitants of a world with aliens, zombies and ethereal beings (made out of pure light), each on the pursuit to become a crypto billionaire, although not always for the same reason. Each user that purchases a Bitcoin Billionaire gets to take part in this journey, gaining access to the world behind the blockchain.
The latest drop has been made possible through the well-known app developer, FizzPow Games. FizzPow Games has since allowed players to become Bitcoin Billionaires themselves, with the launch of 13,337 NFTs. Each NFT will be composed of over 200 identifiable traits. While they will operate completely separate from the current game the team shares, they're building new blockchain-based games as well. In the meantime, cryptocurrency enthusiasts may choose to show off their collection, develop their stories, or continue holding them as they appreciate.
More recently, the Bitcoin Billionaires project was featured in Yahoo Finance’s Top 10 Upcoming NFT Drops, a ranking of attractiveness from 500 NFT analysts. On this list, Billionaires score 10th out of 100 projects based on vitality and execution.
Becoming a billionaire
The platform has just closed its presale, where early members were given a 24-hour advantage to mint NFTs. According to Bitcoin Billionaires, the assets will be tradable on OpenSea after the public sale, which starts Oct.28 at 5 pm EST.
Looking ahead at the team’s official roadmap, two incentives are also indicated in the form of random airdrops, including a CryptoPunk and Bored Ape NFT. Therefore, holding a Bitcoin Billionaire will give users an extra chance to receive valuable digital assets from other projects, a pattern that will likely be repeated as the project progresses.
