NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens)
Non-Fungible Tokens, or NFTs for short, are digital tokens that offer unique ownership of digital assets. NFTs can range, from video files, music MP3s or digital artwork like a photograph or an illustration, to name a few examples. NFTs are unique assets that are tokenised on a Blockchain. Hence, their uniqueness, current ownership and entire sales history can be viewed and verified by anyone.
OpiPets is taking a fresh approach to NFTs. Characters in-game will begin as standard in-game characters. Then, players will progress through the game and level up their characters and the addition of items and traits give their pets special abilities. Finally, once the player is ready to battle with other players, they will mint their character as a unique one-of-a-kind NFT that can never be minted again with the same cosmetic and ability traits.
Should players wish to upgrade their character/NFT further, they must first burn their current character (send that NFT to an inaccessible wallet address). This will enable them to update the character and then re-mint a new version of their OpiPet NFT Character with unique traits and abilities.
