Wildcard’s Genesis WildPass Mint launches on April 20 through an exclusive partnership with Magic Eden. The mint will consist of 4,444 WildPasses on the Polygon blockchain network, providing exclusive opportunities and access to the Wildcard Universe. The Genesis WildPass is the key that unlocks the door to the Wildcard Web3 ecosystem and it will be available on Magic Eden’s Launchpad platform on April 20.
According to Wildcard’s CEO, co-founder, and one of the game’s visionaries, Paul Bettner, “Magic Eden’s commitment and experience in Web3 gaming, along with their Polygon partnership, make this an ideal opportunity for Wildcard and the Wildcard community,” he said, adding that both parties are “looking forward to this new alliance.”
Utilities for the Genesis WildPass will include life-long WildList (Wildcard’s Allowlist) access, holder-only airdrops, priority access to playtesting, collab and partnership programs, early access to ownership opportunities within the Wildcard Universe. The WildPass will also offer exclusive private developer access, such as holder-only roundtable discussions, roadmap sneak peeks, and more.
Wildcard’s mint phases will proceed as previously announced, with Jot’s List, the phase 1 guaranteed WildList, gaining first access to mint and guaranteeing them the opportunity to mint at least one WildPass. For phase 2, the Collabs/Collectors List mint will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Phase 3, the public mint, will take place after that.
Katy Bettner, Wildcard’s co-founder, said “Our goal has been and always will be to build an incredibly fun game, and we think the game will speak for itself. As it relates to Web3, we’re most excited to use this technology to create a living, breathing, competitive ecosystem that includes players, creators, owners, collectors, and fans.”
Since Wildcard’s $46M funding round, led by Paradigm, was announced last June, The Bettners and their team have curated a highly-interactive community with a growing Discord channel of 35,000 members.
