Ankr is excited to join the world of PolkaPets — the digital collectible card game that embodies Polkadot ecosystem projects as mythical creatures — with our own unique NFT card.
Powered by PolkaPets’ immersive and educational gameplay, this collaboration falls perfectly in line with our larger goal to make blockchain more interactive for Ankr’s community members.
It also combines two things we’re very interested in — Polkadot and NFTs. Ankr strongly believes in Polkadot as a project, providing nodes and APIs for its parachains and allowing developers and stakers to utilize the Polkadot ecosystem. NFTs, in turn, have quickly become the hottest thing in crypto, and for good reason: we are just starting to see some excellent use cases for this technology, from gaming and art to real estate and copyright.
Similarly, this Ankr-themed NFT goes beyond just holding value as an art object, as it unlocks extra utility and rewards for each owner.
Meet Ankr, the PolkaPet creature
As an infrastructure provider, Ankr is the base-layer of all things in the blockchain space. This magnificent, powerful, and mobile creature (named Ankr, naturally) symbolizes that. It illustrates our mission to provide best-in-class Web3 services within most relevant blockchains that can be deployed with just a few clicks.
There will be only 800 Ankr PolkaPet cards available via a limited sale that starts on Friday, April 2. An extra 400 cards will be saved for future promotions.
The sale starts at 4 PM EST, April 2 on BondSwap, an OTC trading portal that works directly on-chain. Just like BondSwap, PolkaPets has been developed by Bondly — an interoperable, transparent and portable swap protocol.
Each card will cost 0.15 Ethereum, or an equivalent amount of $BONDLY ERC-20 tokens.
Extra Value and Utility
As mentioned above, we strongly believe in the value and fun the NFT space has to offer, which is why the holders of this Ankr NFT will get more than just a token.
Specifically, holding this Ankr PolkaPet card will unlock you some of the following value and utility within the Ankr ecosystem:
- Exclusive Clubhouse sessions/AMAs with the Ankr team
- Future airdrops/rewards/giveaways from Ankr that will be announced sporadically
- Access to additional rewards and incentives from Ankr’s strategic partners
- Early access to Ankr’s upcoming products
Ankr is a Web3 infrastructure and cross-chain staking DeFi platform that aims to make it easy and affordable for anyone to participate in blockchain ecosystems by building dapps, hosting nodes or staking.
Whether you are launching your own blockchain, a DeFi platform, or run an enterprise company looking to stake or access on-chain data, Ankr has you covered.
Your PolkaPet friends are the first step in having crypto-collectibles in the real-world. The PolkaPet collectibles will be the bridge between digital collectibles and real-world tangible cards and will help develop demand for NFTs as the space continues to develop.
Our goal with PolkaPets is to create a world-wide community with our global partners and bring people together in an effort to educate and innovate on the power of NFTs. With many more announcements to come, we are continuously working on this game. Stay tuned for further information, and in the meantime, prepare for battle!
