Encouraging play to earn with its first rare NFT
Unlike normal NFT that can be minted with ETH, the special edition Bored Ape “HolyShxxt!!” NFT has to be purchased with Key0Coins earned from playing the simulation game. Non-NFT owners may also purchase the Key0Coins in the official channel which are generated at 1:1 ratio as players earn their coins through playing game.
The team believes successful NFT should ride on good online community management that creates long term value. “To maintain the heat of our online community and create long term value for ‘HolyShxxt!!’, it is important for us to keep our platform fresh and let our NFT owners benefit from trading rare NFTs and earning ‘Key0Coin’ through playing games. We are thrilled to collaborate with Elite Apes to launch our first rare NFT. We will keep looking for meaningful collaboration and grow with our fans”, stated LCM, founder and initiator of HolyShxxt!!.
