As the world continues to embrace blockchain technology, NFTs (non-fungible tokens) have become a hot topic in the digital arts industry. In particular, the intersection of gaming and crypto has brought about a new use case for NFTs: trading cards. These cards, which are unique digital assets, are now being used in gaming to represent rare items and characters that can be traded between players. In this article, we will explore the history of NFT trading cards and their relationship with gaming, as well as their use case in the metaverse. We will also introduce NFTchoice, a real-world application that evaluates NFTs and helps increase their value.
The History of NFT Trading Cards
The concept of NFT trading cards first emerged on the Bitcoin blockchain with the introduction of Colored Coins in 2012. These were tokens that represented real-world assets such as stocks, commodities, and even trading cards. However, it was the introduction of the Ethereum blockchain in 2015 that brought about a new wave of NFTs, including NFT trading cards.
The first NFT trading card game on the Ethereum blockchain was called “Spells of Genesis.” It was created by a Swiss-based company called EverdreamSoft and was launched in 2016. The game allowed players to collect and trade digital cards that represented characters, spells, and items. Each card was unique and had its own set of attributes, making them valuable in the game.
Since then, several other NFT trading card games have emerged, including “Gods Unchained” and “Axie Infinity,” which have gained a lot of popularity in the gaming community. These games have shown that there is a demand for NFT trading cards, and they have created a new use case for these unique digital assets.
