    Details about Blankos Block Party

    Blankos is described as a combination of Fortnite and Funko Pops with the addition of NFTs. as most of you probably know, games like this have “skins” that act as the main IP drivers for both digital and physical products. With this in mind, designer brands like Burberry are a natural fit for an NFT project, such as Blankos.

    Not only do these types of collectibles have value, but they can even hold their value and even increase it over the years. Also, Blankos Block Party is very easy to get into, especially since it’s free-to-play. Once they enter the world of Blankos, users have the option to purchase accessories and cosmetics, which are completely optional, but they do give the game its charm.

    The game is currently available on PC, and support for other platforms is expected to come out eventually. The project itself runs on a custom variant of the EOS blockchain.

    Brand designers are rapidly joining the NFT market

    As for Burberry, its NFTs are named “Series B” and they will be making several limited edition drops on August 11. The brand has given a few hints, including vinyl NFT toys, accessories, and a limited edition character, Sharky B.
