Amazon is granting its vast base of 170 million prime subscribers access to exclusive in-game non-fungible tokens (NFTs) from renowned blockchain games like Mojo Melee and Blankos Block Party (BBP).
Starting August 9, Amazon Prime members can avail a diverse range of NFTs, each providing unique perks or characters in specific games such as BBP and Mojo Melee through its gaming portal.
Blankos Block Party is the fruit of a partnership between Mythical Games and Third Kind Games. It offers a multiplayer experience enriched with customizable avatars set in a captivating universe, animated by a unique black vinyl art design.
Within this game, players can trade NFTs to gain profits, underpinning a play-to-earn economic model.
Worth noting, BBP is recognized as the inaugural web3 game to make its entrance on the Epic Stores platform.
Amazon Prime Users Can Access an Array of NFTs
Among the diverse NFT offerings, Amazon Prime members have the chance to obtain the Twilight Strix Blanko NFT from BBP.
This specific NFT harnesses the power of the new moon to combat sinister entities. Additionally, they can access the Midnight Crest Helmet NFT, a legendary accessory crafted to slice through darkness with elegance.
For enthusiasts of Mojo Melee, a strategic game drawing inspiration from deck-building techniques, the Gwyn Rockhopper Champion & Ore Bundle NFT is up for grabs.
This NFT captures the mystique of Gwyn Rockhopper, famed for her unpredictable magic and shrewd maneuvers.
In a joint venture between Amazon Prime Gaming and Mystic Moose, Mojo Melee was unveiled in the beginning of August. This partnership ensures subscribers receive a consistent flow of monthly in-game assets, such as Spellstones and currency bundles.
Moreover, players have exclusive access to coveted digital collectibles, which encompass unique champions and skins.
Minted on the Polygon blockchain, these digital assets also hold the potential to be traded for financial gains in relevant marketplaces.
Amazon Speculated to Launch NFT Marketplace
Amazon’s recent introduction of NFT benefits for Prime Subscribers, while expected, emphasizes the tech giant’s calculated investment in blockchain technology.
Rumblings from March suggested Amazon’s plans to tie NFTs to physical assets, with rumors swirling about the possible inception of an NFT marketplace. However, no concrete announcement has been made to date.
Amazon’s dedication to the blockchain landscape is further evident with the enhancement of its Amazon Web Services (AWS). New tools, named “Access” and “Query”, have been rolled out, simplifying the process for developers to launch decentralized apps.
These tools are now harmoniously integrated with the Amazon Managed Blockchain (AMB) service, reinforcing Amazon’s backing for blockchain-driven creativity.
At its core, by offering in-game NFTs to Prime members, Amazon not only amplifies the blockchain gaming sector but also underlines the immense potential and versatility of NFTs in crafting rich digital experiences.
