From selling expensive memes to puzzle games. Non-fungible tokens might not be the online hype anymore. But they haven’t disappeared.
The trend of NFTs started with artists. Thanks to blockchain technology and the innovative world of cryptocurrency, content creators have found a way to sell their unique creations. Platforms started booming all over the Internet, selling memes, digital artwork, and any type of digital content.
It was a trend born out of the pandemic when people lost their jobs, art galleries had to close, and artists lost their income stream. It was born out of necessity. And, with the world slowly going back to normal, the talk of NFTs died down. It slowed, it didn’t fade away. The platform Hello Anon proves the non-fungible tokens trend is far from over. Here’s how.
Hello Anon enters the game
This is an online game platform. Part riddles and part scrabble, this is a puzzle game based on NFTs. Players have tiles to play the game and each tile represents a letter of the alphabet. And they can purchase them, trade them, and combine them to solve the riddle. On Hello Anon, you will time riddles. To solve them, you will need both the right answer and the right tiles. With only one of these two, you won’t win the day’s game.
Furthermore, the website features a secondary market. How does it work? Simply, if you believe that a certain tile will increase value and demand after a new puzzle is launched, you can sell it there. Players looking for that specific tile will pay a higher price if they want to win the week’s puzzles and riddles.
Buying and selling on Hello Anon
Players can either buy the NFTs and tile through the platform or on the secondary market Opensea. You can purchase them in packs of 1, 5, and 10. Plus, the more you buy, the lower the price. The primary sale happens on the website and it has a time limit. Once the available time has expired, you will only be able to buy them on OpenSea.
