MotoGP Ignition Selling Race Highlights as NFTs

motogp ignition hot shots nft pack sale

Animoca Brands announced the release of MotoGP Ignition Hot Shots, an NFT collection representing exciting moments from MotoGP race events. Interested collectors need to pre-register, and the sale itself will commence on September 28th.

While gamers might still be waiting for the MotoGP Ignition race management game, the NFT collecting side of the project is in full force. After two sales events in the past few months, Hot Shots will be the first one highlighting actual moments from the official races. The first Hot Shots feature moments from the MotoGP 2021 Barwa Grand Prix of Qatar.

Collectors need to register between September 15th and 20th on the official website. There will only be a total of 6,000 Hot Shots packs available for $15 per pack. In each pack collectors can find 3 Hot Shots NFTs with different rarities and each unique by their serial number.

Those who register can buy the NFTs on September 28th. Animoca will divide the sale in three segments: each offering 2,000 packs, and each going live during a time favorable for a different time zone. Buyers should book their preferred time during the sign-up period. In addition it’s useful to know that they only accept credit card payments.

NFT pack details for MotoGP Ignition Hot Shots

Each Hot Shots pack costs $15 (payment via credit card) and contains three Hot Shots collectable videos of any grade. Higher grades are rarer and therefore have lower drop rates. There are four rarities: common, rare, epic and legendary. The luckiest pack you can find contains one rare, an epic and a legendary NFT. The worst one would be two common and a rare.

Above you see the drop rates for each of the 3 Hot Shots NFTs in a pack. Chances are big that a pack will contain two common and a rare, making it the worst possible drop. However, a common and two rare also wouldn’t be outlandish.

There isn’t a fixed supply of videos based on rarity or on content. The time that you open your pack has no impact on the Hot Shots that it contains. However, those interested can keep their packs closed and will be able to trade their sealed packs.

What is MotoGP Ignition?

MotoGP Ignition is a blockchain-powered racing management game with digital collectibles. The official MotoGP licensed game will offer two experiences: collection and competition. Competition will allow players to compete on the track, while the collection element revolves around players collecting all riders, champions, and bikes the game has to offer.

MotoGP Ignition obviously is a blockchain game, and therefore the amount of digital assets is limited. As a result everything gets a certain value, and players can trade their acquired items as they like. 

This motorbike racing game is part of the REVV ecosystem. REVV is a cryptocurrency token that’s all about rewarding players, but it’s also needed to acquire items and make purchases. Currently REVV is already in use for F1 Delta Time, and more games are coming.
