As part of its promising roadmap for 2023, blockchain gaming platform Agora has launched its 2 collections of “Genesis” non-fungible tokens (NFT) on the Ultra and Ethereum (ETH) blockchains. These NFTs, divided into 3 levels of rarity, offer many benefits to their holders, including guaranteed eligibility for an AGA token airdrop.
Agora launches its first “Genesis” NFT collections
Agora (AGA), the GameFi-focused all-in-one platform, has launched the second mint of its “Genesis” collection for the Ethereum (ETH) community, following its first drop on Ultra’s Uniq marketplace.
The result of a collaboration between SwissBorg and Ultra, a blockchain-based gaming ecosystem, Agora sees itself as a bridge between decentralised finance (DeFi) and blockchain gaming. The project is still in its infancy, but is supported by industry giants and has a promising roadmap for 2023.
To build this link between DeFi and GameFi, Agora offers its own token, the AGA, which provides multiple benefits within its ecosystem. These benefits include, among other things, the possibility of staking it in order to be rewarded with the transaction fees collected on the platform, but also with esAGA and veAGA tokens, which themselves offer certain benefits. It is also possible to deposit AGA tokens in the protocol’s liquidity pools in order to be rewarded with esAGA.
In addition, holding AGA tokens gives you privileged access to the Agora launchpad, which will be continuously enhanced with promising projects carefully selected by the project teams. Its release is planned for later this year, along with other new features.
Thus, after having successfully launched its first collection of non-fungible tokens (NFT) “UOS” at the end of January, Agora is repeating the experience with an “ETH” collection in order to get closer to the Ethereum community.
How to get NFT Agora
The first mint started at the end of January is now closed, but it is still possible to get NFTs from the second collection “ETH” on the dedicated page. The 2 NFT collections total 3 levels of rarity, including the rarest Tier 3 “Hydra”, which is now exclusively available on the secondary market via the Uniq marketplace.
The latter provides, among other things, guaranteed eligibility for an airdrop of AGA tokens proportional to its sale price, access to exclusive physical events, early access to Agora’s future services, notably its launchpad and decentralised exchange (DEX), as well as a reward boost inherent in depositing cash on the protocol.
The Tier 2 NFT “Medusa”, priced at ETH 0.24, offers a number of benefits including airdrop eligibility for 10,800 AGA tokens, access to physical events, reward boost, and access to Agora physical events.
Finally, the NFT Tier 1 “Minotaur”, priced at 0.165 ETH, offers the same benefits as the Tier 2, but with an airdrop of 6,250 AGA tokens. Note that the latter is still available on the primary market.
Note that for the AGA tokens offered in proportion to the value of each NFT, these are distributed based on their seed round value of $0.04 (instead of $0.16 in the future Initial Dex Offering distribution). This is a significant opportunity, as these rates are usually reserved for private investors.
For the NFT Minotaur and Medusa, these 2 belonging to Agora’s “ETH” collection, you can find them on the OpenSea secondary market. The Agora ecosystem, powered by Ultra and SwissBorg, is still in its infancy, so owning one of these NFTs could potentially be interesting when it is developed.
