• How Subcultures Fuel The Growing NFT Market: Bored Apes, CryptoPunks, And PLAYSK8

  • PLAYSK8 has worked with OpenSea. The collection will be released in stages and will include 10,000 NFTs (with over 300,000 method animations). The first stage will conclude after 3,000 NFTs have been coined, followed by an expose.

    Each PFP contains three techniques, and the total collection contains the largest library of style attributes ever dispersed in an NFT offering, with 10,000 NFTs containing 300,000 techniques and method variation animations.

    Whereas skating competitions are today dominated by large brand name sponsorships and marketers who do not benefit the community, we, the community and gamers, gain directly from the development of skating culture through NFTs.

    One of PLAYSK8’s key ideas is to live on the outskirts. While adoption benefits people who have invested time in a market (whether it be NFTs or skateboarding), widespread acceptance has the unfortunate side effect of destroying credibility. As ideas become more mainstream, much of the culture and legitimacy that propelled their communities to the top of the heap is lost in the process.

    PLAYSK8 intends to use NFTs to ensure that skating maintains its credibility, at least in the metaverse, by encapsulating the culture of skateboarding in the metaverse. Taking inspiration from how projects like BAYC and CryptoPunks have transitioned from fringe subcultures to the mainstream, PLAYSK8 intends to use NFTs to ensure that skating maintains its credibility, at least in the metaverse.

    What Is PLAYSK8 And How Does It Work?

    PLAYSK8 is an NFT-based video game in which players compete in an SK8 game. The collection has already made waves by teaming up with NFT market behemoth OpenSea and some of the world’s best skaters, like Nyjah Huston. They collaborated with Venice Beach graffiti legends Can’t Be Stopped (CBS) to create their NFTs in order to preserve a look that was true to the beginnings of skating. Each PFP contains three techniques, and the total collection contains the largest library of style attributes ever dispersed in an NFT offering, with 10,000 NFTs containing 300,000 techniques and method variation animations.

    Beyond the video game, PLAYSK8 is collaborating with professional skaters like Nyjah to blur the barriers between real-world and virtual skating. Before the game was even released, members of the PLAYSK8 community had their wishes come true thanks to projects that allowed victors to compete in an SK8 game against Nyjah, the best expert skater in the world at the time. The PLAYSK8 crew has chosen a novel approach to growing their community, enlisting the help of skaters all over the world in large-scale bounty projects to help spread the word. They attracted Nyjah’s attention through these bounties, and he is now a key collaborator in the project. For its mint, PLAYSK8 has worked with OpenSea. The collection will be released in stages and will include 10,000 NFTs (with over 300,000 method animations). The first stage will conclude after 3,000 NFTs have been coined, followed by an expose.

    Infuse The Metaverse With Skating Culture

    The SK8 group wants to introduce skating culture into the metaverse and focus on its beginnings in order to ensure that this digital environment remains pure where the actual one has become polluted. Whereas skating competitions are today dominated by large brand name sponsorships and marketers who do not benefit the community, we, the community and gamers, gain directly from the development of skating culture through NFTs. For the first time, people can take ownership of the brands and subcultures with which they identify and grow alongside them effectively transforming would be customers into brand partners and evangelists.
