Mekaverse breaks records at its launch
MekaVerse is a project of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) of 8,888 Mekas influenced by Japanese manga works such as Gundam, Evangelion, and even Code Geass. It should be noted that the two artists behind the project are French: Matthieu Bracini and Mattey.
On Wednesday, October 6, 172,876 wallets registered to buy a Meka. This is a record in the world of NFTs. A craze that made many disappointed since only 3% of the participants were selected. The project currently has more than 210 000 followers on Twitter and 230 000 on Discord.
The MekaVerse team revealed some statistics on this extraordinary launch:
“We had 4,635,249 views and 661,737 unique users on our website. We had 130,000 hits within minutes of the launch.”
In the end, 8,593 NFTs were sold at launch at a price of 0.2 Ether (ETH) each, earning the team more than 1,718 ETH, or nearly $6.3 million. To date, Meka holders do not know their appearance, which will be revealed on Tuesday, October 12 at 7pm.
On the secondary market, MekaVerse has already generated a volume of 20,300 ETH or about $73 million in less than 3 days.
What’s next for the project?
According to the development plan, the MekaVerse team would like to create and distribute to Meka holders clothing and accessories using environmentally friendly materials and textiles.
They would also like to develop another collection in which each Meka is made in collaboration with and under the artistic direction of well-known artists. Finally, the MekaVerse team would like to partner with famous mecha licenses.
Currently, the minimum purchase price of a Mekaverse is 8 ETH or the equivalent of 28 800 dollars.
