Animoca Brands, Beast Quest Ultimate Heroes, and Harmony partner to launch Beast Quest non-fungible token sale
Beast Quest collectibles enable additional staking rewards when delegating ONE tokens to Animoca Brands’ validator on the Harmony blockchain
15 January 2021: Animoca Brands and its mobile game Beast Quest Ultimate Heroes, based on the best-selling Beast Quest fantasy novels franchise, have partnered with Harmony, the fast and open blockchain for decentralized applications, to launch a Beast Quest Chest Sale on 15 January 2021 at 10 am (PST). For details, and to participate in the sale, please go to https://harmony.one/beastquest.
Each Beast Quest Chest provides users with a Beast Quest collectible card non-fungible token (NFT) of random rarity, as well as 2,400 Gems and 730 VIP points for use in Beast Quest Ultimate Heroes.
These Beast Quest NFTs are standalone collectibles and not in-game items. Gems are a premium currency in Beast Quest Ultimate Heroes and can be used in numerous ways such as gaining new in-game items and energy (required to enter a level, mission, or quest). VIP points increase players' in-game VIP level, granting benefits such as higher energy capacity and extra VIP missions.
Additionally, holders of Harmony’s ONE token can earn extra staking rewards by collecting a set of Beast Quest NFTs and then delegating ONE tokens to Animoca Brands’ validator on the Harmony blockchain.
80% of the proceeds from the Beast Quest Chest Sale will be redistributed to participating members of the Harmony community via a special ONE staking/delegating reward scheme. When ONE token holders collect a set of Beast Quest NFTs (being any 20 Common cards, 10 Rare cards, 5 Epic cards, or a single Legendary card), they are eligible to earn a portion of the Beast Quest Chest sale proceeds if they delegate a minimum of 50,000 ONE tokens to Animoca Brands’ validator on the Harmony blockchain by 10 am, 29 January 2021 (PST) for a period of 90 days.
Yat Siu, the chairman and co-founder of Animoca Brands, commented: “It is a privilege to collaborate with a company of deep vision and potential like Harmony and with a renowned brand like Beast Quest as we continue to innovate novel and different use-cases for NFTs.”
Stephen Tse, the founder and CEO of Harmony, commented: “Animoca Brands is an industry leader in branded assets on blockchain. Harmony is excited to be a cross-chain platform for collectibles and gaming.”
