According to online news sources, the 135-year old playing card brand, Bicycle, is reportedly coming out with its first-ever NFT Collection. Bicycle is a company that was established in 1885 and had since then produced iconic playing cars. The series of non-fungible tokens (NFT), which has been named the ‘Genesis Collection’, will feature some of the most iconic cards. These cards would be transformed into futuristic-looking cards by NFT artist Adrian Valenzuela. The non-fungible token Genesis Collection will consist of 24 NFTs, which were first released on December 9. The drop will continue until the end of the month.
The fans would be given an opportunity to bid on the unique NFTs on www.Kolectiv.gg. Kolectiv is an NFT marketplace that has seen some of the biggest drops from leading NFT artists. On December 16, the company will be dropping 8008 NFT, which will consist of items like an animated card tuck case, besides unique mint numbers from 1 to 8008. The CEO of Bicycle, Stegaan Merxkc, said in an interview recently that this launch marks an important moment in the history of the brand. Through this NFT collection, the brand aims to bridge the gap between innovation and tradition. He further said that the company would continue to look for ways to reach new customers while staying true to its history.
The Genesis NFT series will allow the owners to start a collection while availing additional perks like presales, exclusive events, and whitelists of Bicycle NFTs in the future. By purchasing these NFTs, the users will become virtual members of the elite Bicycle collectors club. The buyers will also have the option to choose a physical copy of the NFT bought at the primary sale. This feature will not be applicable to the buyers of Bicycle NFTs in the secondary market
