Chainbreakers are now tradable on OpenSea
We’re excited to announce that Chainbreakers items are now tradeable and Chainbreakers presale items are now purchasable on OpenSea! Check out the selection on OpenSea of Chainbreakers items here and Chainbreakers presale items here.
Chainbreakers is unusual, even among game dapps. One of its core value propositions is that it will be deeply integrated with Decentraland, and the developers have kept a VR-first mindset throughout development. The presale items can be inspected and enjoyed in three dimensions, both in the native marketplace and on OpenSea.
Chainbreakers is scheduled for stable release in Q4 2019 as a player versus environment game. The environments will exist in Decentraland, and LAND owners will be able to generate passive income by hosting Chainbreakers environments.
History buffs and fans of God of War will be excited to learn that the Chainbreakers narrative takes place in a stylized version of Ancient Greece. Gamers who love to grind should take note that players will be able to earn MANA by finishing quests. And since Chainbreakers uses Decentraland’s MANA as its currency, LAND buyers now have the perfect use for those leftover tokens. Those who are interested in participating in the presale, but don’t have any MANA yet, can find more info on buying MANA in the walkthrough below.
If your favorite part about playing World of Warcraft was armoring up your toon and earning big stacks of gold (perhaps even selling some of that gold for real money), this game is for you!
Buying Chainbreakers items on OpenSea: the walkthrough
So, you’ve already got MetaMask and some ETH, and you’re interested in purchasing some Chainbreakers items on OpenSea, but you’re not sure where to start.
First, check out the Chainbreakers category. You’ll find items there listed for ETH, and you’ll be able to buy them in the familiar way, just like any other item on OpenSea. To purchase a Chainbreakers item outright, click the item, then click ‘Buy Now’.
After that, follow the MetaMask prompts, and as soon as your transaction is mined, you’ll be the proud owner of your Chainbreakers item.
If the item is out of your price range, or if you think that it’s overpriced, click ‘Make an Offer’ instead. Then, select the currency you’d like to make your offer in, enter your offer amount, and click “Continue.”
You’ll be redirected to a page where you can modify and confirm your offer.
When you click “Confirm Offer,” you’ll see a MetaMask popup asking for your signature. When you sign, you’re agreeing to make the exchange (as always, there’s no gas required to make offers!). Then, it’s up to the seller to accept or decline.
You can always make an offer in the currency of your choice, regardless of what currency the listing is denominated in.
But what if you don’t see the item you want in the main Chainbreakers category? In that case, you can head over to the Chainbreakers Presale category, where you’ll find the full range of Chainbreakers items, from common maces all the way up to legendary swords. Let’s see about buying an epic axe.
Click on the item you’re interested in.
If you’re already MANA-rich, just click “Preorder Now,” confirm your MetaMask transaction, and the Chainbreakers presale contract will mint a fresh axe, just for you. But supply is limited, so move quickly! After its supply cap is reached, an item is no longer available in the presale category.
[NOTE: During the drafting this article, the Blade Obscura sold out. If you can’t live without one, check out the listings on OpenSea!]
Not sure how much MANA you’ve got? You can check your supply with tools like Balance and Ethplorer. Or, view your balance on MetaMask by clicking on the MetaMask extension, then clicking the hamburger button in the top left of the popup, and finally scrolling down to MANA. If you don’t see MANA listed, MetaMask is saying your supply is zero.
If you’ve got your eye on an item, but you don’t have enough MANA for it, you can acquire MANA in a few different ways. If you’re already comfortable with AirSwap or another DEX, you can buy MANA there.

To recap: there are two ways to engage with Chainbreakers items on OpenSea. You can trade items that already exist in the main Chainbreakers category, using all the OpenSea features you know and love. Or you can bring a brand new item into existence by making a purchase with MANA in the Chainbreakers presale category. Either way, you end up with the same beautiful, badass end product. But depending on which items are available and which currencies you’re holding, one option may be preferable to the other. Whether you buy from either category on OpenSea or straight from the Chainbreakers marketplace, you’ll be able to see all the action in your activity feed.

So, now you’ve managed to secure a handful of the rarest items, and you’re looking to flip your surplus supply for a profit? Consider listing them on OpenSea! Why list your Chainbreakers items on OpenSea?
Keep your items in your wallet while they’re on sale
You can create an auction for a Chainbreakers item but keep it in your own wallet while it’s on sale. That way, you can still use your Chainbreakers item while it’s on the market! You can learn more about this feature here.
List Chainbreakers items without paying gas
Once you’ve set up your OpenSea account, you can list your Chainbreakers items without paying gas or waiting for confirmations from the blockchain. When you list a Chainbreakers item, you just sign the listing with MetaMask. When the item is purchased, the buyer submits a transaction, and the deal is done.
Accept bids for your Chainbreakers items
Not sure how to price your Chainbreakers items? You don’t have to! Other users can bid on a Chainbreakers item (even if it’s not on sale!) without any action from its owner. The owner can immediately fulfill these bids and receive WETH in exchange for the Chainbreakers items.
