An NFT marketplace launched within the Waves Ducks game
The Waves-based game for collectors of NFT ducks has already gained popularity: over 4,000 NFT ducks have been issued, while players are waiting for the release of NFT farming, a key update in the duck world, scheduled for mid-June.
Today, the project’s team is launching another major service, which will help players to increase their collections and prepare for the farming functionality launch — the NFT marketplace.
Fully built on smart contracts in the Ride language, the marketplace will facilitate auctions for exclusive NFT ducks. This functionality is already available on WavesDucks.com where users could “hatch” ducks, using EGG tokens and breed them for getting unique characters.
Ducks’ rarity is very important as it determines the profitability of your farm, as described in DIP-2. Meanwhile, the marketplace will enable users to add unique NFT ducks to their collections. Collectors will be able to place orders for NFTs with specific parameters. For instance, using filters, it will be possible to find a duck in a specific color and with a specific set of genes.
Please, note that the marketplace will be launched with a restriction on auctioning ducks: in the test mode, only ducks with a rarity over 50% could be auctioned. Later, this restriction will be lifted. However, even now, owners of less unique ducks shouldn’t be disappointed, as the marketplace functionality will enable them to transfer ducks, using their Waves addresses.
The NFT marketplace launch is a major milestone in the game’s development, as it brings extra liquidity and value to characters. As a result, the use of EGG tokens for duck hatching on WavesDucks.com makes even more sense. In addition to generally boosting the Waves Ducks game’s popularity, this functionality helps to lower the entry threshold for players interested in the convenient acquisition of collections for subsequent farming.
