Presenting CryptoLeague: Pokemon Cards of the Crypto World

Tadej Gašparič and his team created CryptoLeague which gives the common crypto term a new dimension in the form of trading cards.

Published

If you have ever been involved in the world of cryptocurrencies, you must have heard of terms such as Bitcoin whale or trader. But have you heard about bag holders or tribalists? These guys are well known to the crypto veterans, and they play a key role in the world of cryptocurrencies.

Project Crypto League personalizes different crypto terms into 41 exciting and fun characters that you can trade and collect in the form of a digital trading card.

Tadej Gašparič started creating at an early age: first Legos, then drawings, later music production, and stage design. He used to keep a sketchbook in school in which he drew logos from famous brands and bands. The sketchbook was passed between his schoolmates many times, and quite a few found it fascinating.

After school, he forgot about drawing and focused more on music and setting up an adult life. You know, get a real job, buy a car, move out of your parent’s house, etc. But he says he is grateful that the child in him did not die, and it was not long after he picked up a pencil again. This time it was the digital one, the one in Photoshop to be exact. In early 2015, Tadej started working on poster design and quickly expanded his work in logo design and branding. Since then, he has helped more than hundreds of people and businesses with his design creations. You can find his portfolio here: www.studio-naboo.com.

“Around 2017, I came across cryptocurrencies but got more heavily involved in November 2020, when I found out about the crazy world of NFTs and the endless possibilities that it offers. During the next few months, I learned many different crypto terms, such as Bitcoin whale or crypto miner. I found these terms interesting that I came up with the Crypto League project, which personalizes different crypto terms into 41 interesting and fun characters. For example, bag holder, hodler, panic seller, trader, miner etc.”

When starting the project, he asked himself a few crucial questions. “What do I wish this art to tell, who or what I want to address, what is the story of the project?” Tadej always believed the more compelling the story, the more immersive the art can be. “In Crypto League, the story is the world of cryptocurrencies itself, so basically what I am doing is just gathering all the facts and putting them together in a unique characterized way.”

Tadej knew what he wanted the characters to feel like but was also aware that he does not possess the technical or artistic skill to produce them. That is why he asked Mark to help out. Mark is a professional Illustrator and has been in business for many years. He worked for companies like Mercedes, Milka, Peugeot, and Gorenje. You can see his art here: www.markjordanstudio.com. He had sent him rough sketches and backstory, and after few sketches, they had the concept outlined.

The characters themselves tell many stories, and there are some hidden clues in each card. Still, the artwork would not be complete without an appealing story explaining all the facts about a specific character. Here is where Tadej reached out to Inga. She is a story writer and helped out to put all the points into a fun read story. This way, collecting the cards is not just fun but also educational.

“When starting this project 4 months ago, I had zero clues on how NFTs work, how the minting process happens, and what marketplace is the best. All I knew is that you can collect NFTs like you would collect Pokémon cards. My initial idea was to design and send it to Nifty Gateway to get some help with the minting and promotion process. But since I got no reply, I decided to learn it myself.”

Tadej reached out to a YouTuber called Earth Bound, and he was helpful with the process. In the end, he also made a video about CryptoLeague project, which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLe8grj_M94.

Crypto League characters come to blockchain in trading cards, fully digitalized and with underlying software that proves their authenticity. They can be bought, sold, traded, or function as financial instruments to investors. 3 out of 41 characters are already available for purchase on Opensea

(https://opensea.io/collection/collectcryptoleague). There are 25 Miner cards, 25 Whale cards, and 7 gold Satoshi Nakamoto cards available. You can also expect 3 to 5 new characters approximately every 45 days, and CryptoLeague aims to drop the last card on 23th of June of 2022, one year after the first card was minted. The last character will be the gold “Founders” card and will be limited to 7 cards. This card will not be for sale but rather distributed among the lucky 7 people who already own all the other 40 characters.

“I believe this project sums up all the knowledge I gathered over the past 10 years. Drawing, designing, illustrating, branding, marketing, project management, web design, and writing. It is like I have been collecting puzzles for all my life and I can now finally put all the pieces together.“

SAND, FLOW, and AUDIO — NFT Tokens Start Moving Upward

FLOW (FLOW) and The Sandbox (SAND) have broken out of a long-term declining resistance line.

Published

on

The $0.87 horizontal support area has been regained by Audius (AUDIO).

All three of these NFTs have shown the ability to resume their upward movements in the direction of their nearest resistances.

SAND

Since March 27, SAND has been falling alongside a declining resistance line. It broke out above this line on July 3 and achieved a high of $0.692 on July 17. Just above the 0.618 Fib retracement resistance line, the high was set.

After generating a long upper wick, SAND was unable to maintain the upward movement and decreased.

Technical indications are still positive despite the decline. The RSI and MACD are both above zero. Although the Stochastic oscillator is rising, it has yet to make a bearish cross.

The coin has already completed a five-wave bullish structure (orange) with an extended fifth wave, according to the shorter-term 4-hour chart (black).

It then bounced after retracing all the way to the $0.35-$0.38 support region. The 0.618 Fib retracement support level and a horizontal support area form the support.

SAND must remain above the $0.35-$0.38 support region for the upward trend to continue. It is anticipated to break out from the 0.618 Fib retracement resistance level at $0.61 and advance towards $0.90 if successful.

Summary

  • SAND broke out from a descending resistance line.
  • Short-term indicators are bullish.

FLOW

Since reaching a low of $6.01 on June 22, FLOW has been steadily rising. It broke out of a declining resistance line that has been there since April on July 7.

The coin continued to rise until it hit the 0.382 Fib retracement resistance level at $20, where it was rejected.

Technical indicators are still bullish despite the decrease, as the MACD is positive and the RSI is above 50.

The 0.618 Fib retracement resistance level at $20.80 is the next barrier.

A completed bullish impulse and subsequent A-B-C corrective structure can be seen on the shorter-term six-hour chart (black).

SAND’s decline slowed as it hit the 0.618 Fib retracement support level at $11.51. Since then, the token has been steadily increasing in value.

Both the MACD and the RSI are growing, indicating that the upward trend will continue.

As a result, FLOW will probably seek to break out above $20 again, possibly increasing to $28.80.

Summary

  • FLOW has broken out from a descending resistance line.
  • It is facing resistance at $20 and $28.80

AUDIO

The price of FLOW has broken through a declining resistance line.
Since March 27, when it hit an all-time high of $4.99, AUDIO has been declining. The declining trend continued until June 22, when the price hit a low of $0.59. This has resulted in a breakdown from the $0.87 horizontal support level (red icon).

The price of FLOW has broken through a declining resistance line.
However, the token quickly reclaimed the level and has now confirmed it as support (green icon). If the upward trend continues, the nearest point of resistance will be at $2.05.

Technical indications, on the other hand, are quite neutral. The RSI is at 50, and the MACD is barely below 0 on the chart. Furthermore, even if it has not yet made a bearish cross, the Stochastic oscillator is going downwards.

AUDIO has broken down from a rising support line and is currently validating it as resistance on the two-hour chart.

The token must regain this line for the short-term trend to be considered bullish.

Summary

  • AUDIO has reclaimed the $0.87 support area.
  • It has broken down from an ascending support line.

DeFine, a Social NFT Platform, Has Raised $5 Million From Asian Investors

In Asia, the market for nonfungible tokens appears to be expanding. DeFine has received funding from a number of companies and venture capital funds in order to offer NFTs to a wider audience.

Published

DeFine, a socially conscious nonfungible token platform has raised $5 million in strategic funding as part of a larger drive to bring more businesses into the NFT space.

Huobi Ventures, Abyss, an eSports entertainment firm, and PearlAbyss, a global game developer, lead the round, the company revealed Tuesday. Draper Dragon, NGC Ventures, and SevenX Ventures were among the Asian blockchain funds that attended.

DeFine’s worldwide operations lead, Myoung Hoon Kang, said, “It is my joy to have these significant gaming and entertainment organizations in Asia as key investors. Through strategic investment and collaboration, we will be able to establish new market potential in a variety of industries jointly.”

Investors will receive direct support from DeFine in connecting to the NFT market as part of their strategic investment. The company’s ambition is to build Asia’s largest NFT ecosystem. One of its key goals is to introduce NFTs to the general public, starting with the gaming and entertainment industries.

DeFine bills itself as a social NFT platform for artists, musicians, gamers, influencers, and athletes. Users of the platform have NFT-based social profiles that showcase their accomplishments and contributions to the network.

According to DappRadar data, the sale of NFTs increased by $2.5 billion in the first half of 2021. Gaming and entertainment are two of the most common NFT applications. This trend has been noticed by venture capitalists, who have spent millions of dollars into NFT-focused firms this year alone.

NFT Marketplace Based on Tron APENFT Burns $2.52 Million in NFT: Details

On Tron, the largest token burn incident in the history of the digital collectibles market occurred.

Published

on

On the Tron (TRX) blockchain, APENFT is a pioneering ecosystem for non-fungible tokens. It recently revealed the details of a large token burn event.

NFT Tokens Worth $2.52 Million Were Destroyed

On July 16, 2021, 1.03 trillion of APENFT’s core native NFT assets were destroyed, according to an official notice made on social media by the APENFT team.

This huge quantity was equivalent to $2,520,000 at the moment of the token burn. As a result, this is the most significant increase in scarcity since the APENFT marketplace was launched.

The tokens were sent to T9yD14Nj9j7xAB4dbGeiX9h8unkKLxmGkn, an all-zero Tron (TRX) account, where they were destroyed for good. Therefore, this large batch of tokens has been removed from the NFT circulating supply.

The vast figure is the same as the price of Andy Warhol’s Three Self-Portraits, which APENFT recently purchased on the newly created Binance NFT marketplace.

APENFT Collaborates With Well-known Art Markets

Because NFT is both a governance and a utility token in the APENFT ecosystem, token burn events are exclusively decided by the NFT holders.

On July 7, a community referendum was held, and the proposal was approved on July 10.

Christie’s and Sotheby’s, two famed auction houses, have already joined with APENFT, the first-ever NFT marketplace on Tron. In addition, it has formed a partnership with Beeple and Nifty Gateway, two digital collectibles legends.
