Magic Eden, a popular cross-chain NFT marketplace, has announced its upcoming event called Mint Madness. The event will offer fans and players the opportunity to mint free NFTs from 12 participating blockchain games. The event is set to launch in March and will allow everyone to join new blockchain gaming ecosystems without any upfront costs.
Among the 12 games participating in the event are Planet Mojo, MetaStar Strikers, Alaska Gold Rush, PAPU, Realm Hunter, Shrapnel, Petobots, Legendary: Heroes Unchained, Blast Royale, Moonlit Games, Tearing Spaces, and Freckle TV. The mint schedule for each project is available on their respective social channels.
"NFTs are a really important user engagement tool for them to share their vision and work with a highly captive and invested audience," said Chris Akhavan, Chief Gaming Officer at Magic Eden.
To encourage engagement during the Mint Madness event, Magic Eden will post a leaderboard of the top NFT traders. The top 10 traders by volume on the Polygon collections will be entered into a prize pool of 20,000 MATIC (about $25,500), with the first-place winner receiving 4,500 MATIC (about $5,400) in prizes.
In addition to the public mint, players can also register for a chance to be added to a whitelist that gives them pre-access to all project mints. Fifty wallets for each project will be drawn a day before the mint. Participants must watch Magic Eden's Twitter feed to see if they have been selected.
With Mint Madness, Magic Eden hopes to give everyone the opportunity to experience new blockchain gaming ecosystems without any upfront costs. It's an excellent opportunity for those who are priced out from any of the games above to grab some free NFTs.
