Animoca Brands' tower-defense mobile game Crazy Defense Heroes has successfully completed the sale of 100 Super Value Chests, each containing a collectible card non-fungible token (NFT), Gems (the in-game premium currency of Crazy Defense Heroes), and VIP points.
During the sale held at www.crazydefenseheroes.com, a total of 100 Super Value Chests sold out, including all Legendary chests (the highest and most valuable tier available) which sold out in less than 24 hours. The Crazy Defense Heroes collectible card NFTs obtained in the Super Value Chests can now be traded at Opensea.
The Super Value Chests sale marks the first foray of Crazy Defense Heroes - a traditional mobile game - to explore opportunities provided by blockchain technology, and represents the first of several planned actions to overcome the divide between the worlds of traditional gaming and cryptographic gaming.
The sale is the first initiative by Animoca Brands to bring blockchain and NFTs to traditional mobile gaming. Animoca Brands will continue exploring the potential of blockchain and NFTs attached to traditional mobile games, challenging the standard model of game licensing and fostering the mass adoption of blockchain and NFT technologies.

2 years ago, on April 26th, 2018, Vladimir Tomko, CEO, and the team of Blockchain Cuties Universe, launched a crypto collectible game that was meant to define the industry. It was a time of pioneers and brave enthusiasts; this was a field nobody had ever explored before. On that note, Blockchain Cuties worked tirelessly to make a name for itself using the particular description “one of the first”.
From the 26th of April to the 29th of April 2020, players can join a birthday celebration of one of the first multi-blockchain games as well as one of the first TRON Dapps released on Samsung Blockchain Wallet. That’s right, it’s all about Blockchain Cuties!
Happy 2 years: the game & the players
Blockchain Cuties is a crypto collectible game with strong strategic elements, innovative gameplay, and most importantly, characters presented as real digital art with its own value and functionality. These characters, appropriately named Cuties, are shaped like cute animals or fantasy creatures – lizards, kittens, bears, rabbits, aliens, etc. Players get to breed their Cuties, send them on exciting adventures, and skilfully arm their little warriors to fight against bloodthirsty Raid Bosses. And sure, players can also sell their characters any time for any price they find fair.
Since the very beginning, the game has utilized a special communicative approach with its players, aptly named the community-driven development approach. This means the players have an active hand in developing the game. Thus, players receive power and freedom, fulfilling the substantive promise by blockchain technology itself.
As the players are the key component for a successful and strong game, Blockchain Cuties has decided to flip its birthday on the head and share the love by giving away some valuable gifts. The game doesn’t expect you to come over with a cake, just a couple of nice wishes are enough.
