You’ve probably heard of Street Fighter, one of the highest-grossing video game franchises of all time. Created by Capcom, Street Fighter debuted in arcades in 1987 and is now coming to blockchain for the first time. Street Fighter packs will be available on Wax today for the first time for a period of 24 hours.
Investors will buy and open their digital trading cards all online. Packs will feature iconic characters on collectible cards called NFTs (non-fungible tokens).
What is an NFT? In short, NFT is a non-fungible token which represents a unique object. As an NFT is unique, there is no 100% similar NFT. When you buy a Street Fighter pack on Wax, each card is one of one.
The first Street Fighter series features 262 unique trading cards. It doesn’t stop there, though. Once you open your pack, you will then combine two Build Cards to unlock a new card in one of six rarities.
Can you imagine opening a pack of cards online? Virtually – not physically in your hands.
Now, can you imagine combining these digital assets into another more powerful digital asset? All online, of course.
You can keep upgrading your card with your Build Cards until you reach a power score of five which will unlock a special Class Card in one of six rarities.
If that doesn’t intrigue you enough, this will.
Once you use a Build Card, it is automatically burned and cannot be used again. This makes each card even more scarce.
As with physical trading cards, the scarcer a card is, the more valuable it tends to become.
Welcome to the future!
