The Spells of Genesis trading card show will be held at CryptoVoxels, as NFT galleries become more frequent in the metaverse.
Spells of Genesis, widely recognised as the first play-to-earn blockchain game, celebrates its fifth anniversary on Thursday. Many of the game’s trading card-based NFTs were first released by EverdreamSoft in 2015, while the game’s mobile trading card game did not launch until 2017. On April 20, Everdream Soft announced the opening of an NFT History Museum within the CryptoVoxels metaverse to mark the occasion. New and vintage SoG cards, as well as materials from several other popular NFT collections, will be included in this virtual display.
Spells of Genesis is a point-and-shoot arcade game that combines trade cards and point-and-shoot gameplay. In order to combat their adversaries and earn bitcoin at the same time, players must collect and mix cards to make the best deck possible. In the upcoming exhibition, original cards from the collection’s origins will take centre stage.
One vintage card will be selected each month and exhibited on the museum’s rooftop. Users who click on the highlighted card will be taken to the Spells of Genesis Showroom, which serves as a portal to learning about the history of blockchain gaming. The museum has been in the works for several months, according to the business, and will exhibit collections from projects that “have enhanced the continuing evolution of digital assets.”
The NFT History Museum, according to Shaban Shaame, CEO of EverdreamSoft, “puts forward some of the most significant and famous NFT initiatives in the industry.” The Bitcoin Genesis Block, the RAREPEPE Series 1 Nakamoto card, and treasures from another early game called Etheria will all be on show in the museum. Collections from Cryptopunks, Counterparty, Mooncats, and Axie Infinity will also be on display.
Users will also enjoy a discount on the card of the month, and one lucky participant who registers the NFT Museum’s guestbook in April will be entered to win a 2017 Spells of Genesis card. Other signees may be granted unique access to future SoG experiences and events for the remainder of the year.
Originally, in-game cards could only be created on the Bitcoin blockchain using Counterparty, an early blockchain system. After several years of stagnation, sales of SoG began to climb again in 2020, when it became interoperable with the Ethereum network. In a talk with Shaame, he disclosed his concept of showcasing those so-called rare SoG trade cards in a museum environment, which has now become a reality.
