Whatโ€™s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

1/ Cryptoys is one of the most widely anticipated companies to build on the @flow_blockchain and a @flowverse_ sock holder favourite ๐Ÿงฆ

Theyโ€™re a digital toy company with NFTs underpinning the technology behind their digital collectibles.

Image

2/ Everything Cryptoys does will be centered around 3 pillars:

๐Ÿงธ Toys

๐Ÿ•น๏ธ Gaming

๐ŸŽ‰ Entertainment

3/ This starts with an incredible unboxing experience with Cryptoys Cubes.

Their goal is to have the best unboxing experience on the web.

The experience will be interactive, tactile, exciting and when the Cubes line up newly minted Cryptoys will be revealed!

Image

4/ Once revealed, users can choose to take it out of the packaging or leave it pristine in the packaging just like a physical toy collector may do.

Note: There may be benefits to keep it in the packaging ๐Ÿ“ฆ

5/ After minting your Cryptoy, you can share it via socials and also immediately take your new friend out to play on their interactive test drive environment called The Block.

Users will have full control of their Cryptoy i.e. you can jump, move it + sound effects ๐Ÿ”Š

6/ Then comes the Cryptoys Backpack - a custodial wallet. It will house your Cryptoys and Cubes.

In Q1 2023, a non-custodial wallet option will be added, allowing users to export their private keys and move their Cryptoys off the platform to be traded on secondary marketplaces

7/ Genesis Hero Series - upcoming NFT series โšก

Cryptoys will release this progressively but here is some info on supply, traits, rarity:

โญ 3 character breeds
โญ 7 rarity level skins
โญ 21 collectible skins
โญ 10k quantity per breed
โญ 30k total Genesis 1 editions

Image

8/ Tiers

There will be 3 tiers: Adventures, Elites, and the Hero. Each tier will represent different power levels, each with its own benefits.

๐Ÿฅ‰ Adventurers: base level, affordable
๐Ÿฅˆ Elite: mid-level, mid price point
๐Ÿฅ‡ Hero: cream of the crop, highest price point

Image

9/ Rarity levels

Cryptoys have 7 rarities, with unique collectible skins for each character in varying quantities โœจ

- Common
- Uncommon
- Rare
- Epic
- Legendary
- Grail
- Ultra Grail

10/ Power levels

Each Cryptoy has a Stat-O-Meter power level next to it, influenced by tier and rarity skin factors.

Heroes start with a pretty decent Stat-O-Meter and can increase this by doing certain actions.

Adventures and Elites start at a lower level & will have a cap

Image

11/ Masters of The Universe (MOTU)

The team also revealed the first wave of officially licensed Cryptoy characters i.e. He-Man, Tri-Klops, Battle Cat & Evil-Lyn, which will be fully interactive and each will have a multitude of variants!

Image

12/ Note: There will be more officially licensed brands onboarding to Cryptoys - the team has signed an NDA so canโ€™t reveal more yet ๐Ÿ‘€

13/ Castle Grayskull ๐Ÿฐ

They also revealed Castle Grayskull (a playset/special edition NFT) - an iconic part of the MOTU lore.

This will allow you to take your MOTU Cryptoys and run into this playset!

14/ Team and funding ๐Ÿ’ฐ

The team is now over 50 people (led by @willweinraub) and theyโ€™ve raised $23m from some notable investors

โœ…Collector Titles: awarded as you expand your collection across rarity skins for each series and unlock special access to exclusive drops, experiences, and benefits

โœ…Title progression: Every 3 rarity skins you collect will earn an elevated Collector Title

18/ Note: To complete the Cryptoys genesis series and earn a Grand Master title, you must collect all 18 common, uncommon, epic, rare, legendary, and grail skins.

Ultra Grails, 1:1 in the series, are not required to complete the series collection

19/ Mini-games ๐ŸŽฎ

Several family-friendly casual styled games are also coming soon.

The team is also building an internal SDK that will allow partners to build on top of the platform.

The aim is to bring fresh new experiences for users and their Cryptoys! ๐Ÿ”ฅ
