We’re excited to announce that Epics trading cards are now tradable on OpenSea!
Epics is an Ethereum-powered platform for esports themed digital collectibles. You can tell your dad that they’re just like the baseball cards he collected, except digital, tradable in a global market, and provably scarce. It’s a beautifully polished project. And since the esports crowd can’t do anything without turning it into a competition, the very act of collecting is gamified. The collectors with the rarest items and the lowest IDs will appear at the top of the official Epics leaderboard.
In the words of Epics:
Epics are the first officially licensed digital collectibles for esports. Our mission is to immortalize the players, teams, and events that make esports great and to provide collectors with the highest quality content.
Exclusive OpenSea auctions
As part of our partnership, Epics will be auctioning off the six lowest mint number cards from their rarest seasonal set: the Midnight Collection. Midnights are the rarest cards Epics release each season. This season’s set features the world’s #1 ranked Counsterstrike team, Astralis. In 2019, they notched their 4th Counterstrike major win, the most of any team in history. Their run of victories throughout 2018–2019 will go down as one of the most dominant not only in Counterstrike history, but esports history more generally.
- Only 90 Midnight cards are minted each season (15 cards for each of the team’s 5 players and 15 team logo cards)
- Each card is numbered from 1–15
- All player cards feature unique digital signatures from the player featured on the card with the team logo card featuring a collection of signatures from each of the player cards from that mint number (The 1/15 team logo card will feature the five player signatures from the 1/15 player cards)
- The OpenSea auction will feature the lowest mint number for each card (1/15), which is typically the most sought after set from the collection
