Weekly Update: Nov 2

The endless Summer of NFTs is finally drawing to a beautiful close as the first DirtyRobot Seasons Space Forge is now complete. The Autumn edition is near and the Art Drop Trait is also here. What will we do to celebrate this wonderful and momentous occasion? An ETH all-time high MEME contest!

Weekly Update: Nov 2

Everything is unbelievably busy, so let’s get right down to business. There are so many partnerships, collaborations, and developments happening at once that it is a challenge to keep up with it all.

The biggest news is the Art Drop feature going live on-chain with 150 DirtyRobot NFTs distributed to cards. Check your cards with the Phoenix and Art Drop Traits for a new icon on the face that notes an available claim.

Phoenix and Natural Perfects also now appear on the cards and will receive more detailed information when fully implemented and available.

NFT.NYC 2021 is underway and it is shaping up to be an amazing experience for everyone in our space. If you are fortunate enough to be there in attendance, check out the amazing event schedule and list of speakers.

On behalf of Ether Cards, Adam Bauer presented: Growing Communities with Dynamic NFTs.

Ether Cards has partnered with NFTPuzzleThing and IYK to launch a first of its kind super-collaboration NFT scavenger hunt during the conference. Additionally, everyone may now follow the action on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the pace of development is also reaching its peak hashrate. Behind the scenes, the team never sleeps. With an international presence in almost every time zone on the planet, this is the Ether Cards way - to succeed!


Partnerships

In addition to the direct partnerships, we have added numerous community partners to the ecosystem. All the partnerships together function to drive value across our shared communities. From early mint access, to discounts and now DUST integration - we are at the very center of an active galactic nucleus.

LaMelo Ball Collectibles

The LaMelo Ball’s Playground team revealed the first batch of ten traits to be released using @chainlink and @ether_cards technology: Game Tickets, Team Jersey, Physical Merch, Signed Memorabilia, Memorabilia, League Pass, Digital Redeemable, ROTY, 1st Edition and Art Evolve. Follow @MELOD1P’s amazing career and statistics through his NFT collection, which is available on OpenSea.

EtherHeads

EtherHeads announced they will be closing the mint on November 3rd to focus on returning value to cardholders and growing Discord and Twitter community engagement. Thank you to all the visionaries supporting Zsolt’s inaugural NFTs!

DirtyRobot

Physical cards with DirtyRobot Seasons NFT artwork may now be claimed by clicking the Redeem trait. Please note that cards will be delivered later this year - watch out for the email notification.

Due to the extremely high demand, all of the 128 DirtyRobot Space Forge attempts have been utilized and the Forge is now closed. For those that have completed the Forge, there are still some NFTs available for claim via the website. If you missed your opportunity, DirtyRobot NFTs are still available via the secondary market on OpenSea.

Genomes

The $GENE public sale on Sushi Miso launch platform is scheduled for Tuesday, November 16! Following the launch, there will be some nice surprises for Ether Card holders. Please follow Genomes on Twitter and join their Discord for the most current information.

Forge the new Fresh Meat NFT by utilizing Distorted Reality and Dream Catcher NFTs that still have their Forge Traits intact. Upon forging, the Distorted Reality NFT will be burned, and the Dream Catcher NFTs will lose the Forge Trait

Marketing

This week, we continued our momentum with Rarity Tools integration, more live Twitter Spaces, and YouTube Streams.

Keep up with card rarity rankings with the latest integration with rarity.tools! Please note that rarity does not necessarily determine a card's value and due to the dynamic nature of Ether Cards NFTs, rankings may change over time.

Andras and the team are all over Twitter Spaces, again! @mattmedved hosted Ether Cards, @DillonFrancis, CT6, @madpups, and others last week during two informative events. More Twitter spaces will be announced later this week.

CryptoPapi hosted Andras live on his YouTube channel for a more in-depth look into Ether Cards and NFTs.

Thanks to the Trippy NFT Collective clubhouse appearance last week and Twitter Spaces with @mattmedved - Ether Cards has received numerous follow-up requests and leads. These are all in addition to the previously mentioned - dozen to two dozen upcoming projects.

Special thanks to all of our partners and community for pushing the Ether Cards Twitter account closer to our next goal of 20,000 Followers!



As the Halloween contest draws to a close and we all behold the magnificent and #spooky creations of our community artists, let’s be thankful that we have such an amazing and supportive community. I am also very thankful for Mariana’s amazing organizational skills in keeping track of all the spooky Ether Cards.

From the 0xfiles Workshop, to the Trait Council Stage and Wizard’s Tongue Saloon - our journey has just begun. We still have the mysterious D.A.V.E. that Gandalf sought prior to the Friday Night Trivia explosion. Is this another unsolved mystery for the fans of Encyclopedia Brown?

Now, we have a state-of-the-art basketball arena with the NBA ROTY - LaMelo Ball. A boxing ring with The Baddest Man on the Planet. Will someone burn that trait and spar with Iron Mike? A packed stadium for every Steve Aoki show!

Incredible NFT art galleries from SuperChief - with Shoyu on the way. Modern NFT masterpieces from DirtyRobot, Ethereans, Ether Heads, and soon Toddlerpillars, too. Our friends in the CryptoMonster Lab, Fishbowl Heads and Pluto Alliance only expand our understanding of the metaverse.

I may not be able to figure out what happened to Gandalf, but I am really looking forward to dabbling in genetics with the Genomes launch. What if they have real laboratories?

Development

As you may have noticed with discord engagement, the development team literally never sleeps. In addition to answering all kinds of technical questions - at all hours of the day, coding continues at high speed.

Art Drop, Phoenix, and Perfect Traits are all moving forward. Please see more details below in the Trait Council section.

Much of the development work recently centered around the DirtyRobot Physical Redeem and Space Forge. Also, the most recent Steve Aoki Forge and partnership integrations.

There is an incredible amount of work going into the self-service platform and other project initiatives. Testing and implementation of new contracts and features will be announced as soon as they are available.


Trait Council

Art Drop trait is live with icons displayed on the face of qualifying cards. The trait may be claimed like other redeemable digital NFTs.

Phoenix and Perfect Traits are also now displayed on the cards. The Trait Council is currently finalizing details prior to full implementation.
