Gamers have deposited almost 75 million REVV tokens for the pre-sale of the 2020 Season of F1 Delta Time. That’s 2.2 million dollars. These tokens are locked away and those who deposited them, can use their tokens to acquire packs containing car parts, drivers and vehicles. Animoca Brands will return all unused REVV tokens to their original owners.
F1 Delta Time prepared themselves well for this pre-sale, as the deposits clearly indicate the amount of interest in their sale. They know exactly how many people potentially will buy one or more packs. Because people who didn’t deposit, can’t acquire the items through the pre-sale.
A couple of hours ago the auction for the Bahrein Edition 2020 racing car ended. A collector who goes by the nickname SFLL acquired the car of the Apex rarity for 2.65 million REVV. That’s almost 80 thousand dollars. This auction happened right on the tail of the first track segment, which sold for a record-breaking 223 thousand dollars.
Sale starts tomorrow
The purchasing period for this pre-sale starts tomorrow. During that time players can use their deposited REVV tokens to buy keys, and on December 11th the pre-sale ends. After that the developers wil return all unused REVV tokens.
Because of the amount deposited by gamers, they will get a 50 percent discount on all their purchases. Instead of crates, players will be buying keys. Each of these keys unlocks a total of five digital assets, or non-fungible tokens. Keys are fungible tokens that can be pre-purchased and traded even before they unlock the actual content.
What is F1 Delta Time?
F1 Delta Time is one of the officially licensed sports games from Animoca Brands. In this blockchain game players can collect virtual cars, drivers and car parts. Each of these parts is an unique non-fungible token and can be collected, traded, used or sold individually. Some of the very rare vehicles have sold for 16 thousand dollars through an auction. Animoca Brands already made thousands of dollars through a variety of auctions.
The Racing Game presents the players with tracks from the official Formula 1 season playable from your browser. Players go head-to-head in qualifying sessions, before going into the final race. Similar to the Time Trial, car and driver compositions are key. The right track requires the right composition, as well as the most suitable tires for the current weather.
During qualifying, the player is in direct control of their car and driver. The player needs to control the speed of their car, decelerating as the car enters a corner, and then accelerating back out. Timing and control result in better maintained speed, and therefore better times.
