The NFT market has been attracting more players, especially since the beginning of 2021, and its sales have been on the rise. As more and more projects are launching in the NFT space, it is necessary for these projects to set themselves apart from the crowd by being innovative. A leading dynamic NFT platform known as EtherCard has come out and announced that it is rewarding its early adopters with an airdrop of Dust tokens. There are currently 27 million Dust tokens up for grabs for Ethercard holders.
With the announcement, everyone who holds an Ether card will receive and continue to collect these Dust tokens. These 27 million Dust tokens can be redeemed for up to 27 CryptoPunks starting October 8, 2021.According to DappRadar, the value of these CryptoPunks is estimated at $10.6 million. If you want to check out these CryptoPunks, you can do so on Larva Labs’ official website. Two of the Punks have already been claimed.
Details of the Dust Token airdrop
Dust tokens ($Dust) are utility tokens for the EtherCard NFT platform and will be used throughout the EtherCard ecosystem. All Ethercards will receive Dust tokens on an ongoing basis. These tokens can be exchanged for non-forgeable tokens (NFTs) in the EtherCard community pool. Holders will also be able to participate in early NFT sales and many other activities.
This airdrop explains EtherCard’s position in the dynamic NFT space. It paves the way for the launch of Ethercard’s NFT self-service platform. This self-service platform enables celebrities, athletes and brands to create, launch and manage dynamic non-melting tokens in order to engage, nurture and monetize their communities.
According to Andras Kristof, CEO and Founder of EtherCard, “The Dust token airdrop and CryptoPunks giveaway are a way for us to give back to the EtherCard community so that they can enjoy even more benefits as loyal users of the platform. We are excited to continue to bring these exclusive opportunities to our own cardholders and the broader ethereal card community.” According to the OpenSea NFT Marketplace, the secondary market for Ether cards sold over $9.4 million, and on October 1, Steve Aoki purchased the #99 OG Ether card for 49 ETH.
The Dust token ($DUST) can be used across the entire Ether card ecosystem. Holders can use it to pre-order NFTs issued on the EtherCard ‘card’ platform before other buyers.Also, the token enables users of the EtherCard NFT platform to upgrade to bigger and better benefits the longer they hold the Dust token. The token also activates certain features of the NFTs issued on the EtherCard platform.
With this CryptoPunks giveaway, the EtherCard NFT platform will begin issuing more NFTs such as 30 Meebits, 50 Alpha Cards, 250 Founder Cards, and 25 Mike Tyson NFTs.
