The Runi NFTs earlier this year sold out its 2000 spot allowlist in under two minutes. Now, Splinterlands is heading to OpenSea and integrating its community to enhance GameFi exposure on the platform.
Splinterlands runs on the Hive blockchain but is now opening its doors to other blockchain communities. This partnership makes RUNI the first drop from Splinterlands on the Ethereum blockchain. Starting October 25th, the Splinterlands OpenSea NFT mints for RUNI will be open to allowlist holders. Additionally, the public sale goes live on November 3rd. There are 6500 mint spots, costing ~0.38 ETH ($500) each.
RUNIs is a type of generative pfp NFT that can be used in-game as playable cards. Furthermore, the cards are also Legendary Level 4 playable creatures in Splinterlands. This makes a great mint opportunity for hardcore Ethereum gamers to get into the project. Moreover, there are more than two billion trait combinations for RUNIs. This makes each RUNI a completely unique, one-of-one card for each holder.
Splinterlands CEO & Co-Founder Jesse “Aggroed” Reich stated, “We’re excited to bring Splinterlands into the OpenSea ecosystem in such a direct way and to cross-pollinate our user bases. It’s a perfect partnership that will serve our mutual desire to see more people get excited about the incredible possibilities of our industry. We couldn’t ask for a better partner for the launch of Runi.”
Splinterlands is the number 1 game on the blockchain, according to DappRadar. The game combines Pokemon-level playability with World Of Warcraft aesthetics and art styles. The play-to-earn game has gained a massive fan following with a fantasy storyline and engaging collectible card battles.
Players can also win real money in-game via quests and tournaments. Moreover, traditional card games can last for 30 minutes or more, but Splinterlands has developed a unique style of play that allows users to finish games within 2-3 minutes.
