F1® Delta Time completes first crate sale, sells over US$364,000 worth of items
13 March 2020: The first official F1® Delta Time crate sale, held on 25 February to 9 March 2020, sold a total of 2,375 crates, including over 94% of top tier (Legendary) crates. The crate sale generated over US$364,000 (approx. A$555,000) and made F1® Delta Time the top blockchain game as ranked by 24-hour, 7-day, and 30-day trade volume on both DappRadar and Dapp.com.
Many of the F1® Delta Time digital collectibles are also trading on public marketplaces such as OpenSea, where F1® Delta Time became the second highest ranked DApp by volume on the platform (with the game’s goods generating trades of over 320 ETH or approximately A$100,000).
Crates in F1® Delta Time are ERC-20 tokens and are available in 4 tiers: Common, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. Each crate contains 5 NFTs, including race cars, drivers, car components, driver gear, or tyres. The contents of crates are random, with cars and drivers being the rarest to obtain. Players can choose to open their crates, sell them to other players, or hold on to them for future use.
Each tier of crates has a limited supply, and the total numbers of crates sold are:
Common Crates: 678 sold
Rare Crates: 517 sold
Epic Crates: 706 sold
Legendary Crates: 474 sold
All unsold crates were destroyed and the NFTs inside these crates will never be available again.
Apex “China Edition 2019” car lucky draw
Players received “Car Tickets” for any crate purchase, and a total of 6,200 car tickets were issued during the crate sale. The more car tickets a player has, the higher the chance to win an Apex “China Edition 2019” car.
With over 2,000 crates sold, F1® Delta Time fans unlocked the “China Edition 2019 Vermillion Bird”, which is one of the unique cars from the “Four Guardians” collection and is of the highest rarity level Apex. A lucky draw will be conducted by 19 March 2020 to determine the winner of the car.
The first of the Four Guardians cars - “China Edition 2019 Azure Dragon” - was previously sold at auction for 91 ETH. The other two cars, named “White Tiger” and “Black Tortoise”, have been destroyed and are no longer available.
Staking car NFTs to generate in-game currency
In F1® Delta Time, cars are NFTs and will have the ability to generate REV through “Staking”, with rarer cars generating higher amounts of REV. REV is an ERC-20 token and the primary in-game currency in F1® Delta Time.
When you choose to Stake your car, you temporarily transfer ownership to F1® Delta Time and lose the ability to use, race or trade that car, but you will earn REV based on the period of time that your car is Staked.
