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

They’re a digital toy company with NFTs underpinning the technology behind their digital collectibles.


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

🧸 Toys

🕹️ Gaming

🎉 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!


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 📦

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 🔊

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 ⚡

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

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


8/ Tiers

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

🥉 Adventurers: base level, affordable
🥈 Elite: mid-level, mid price point
🥇 Hero: cream of the crop, highest price point


9/ Rarity levels

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

- 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


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!


12/ Note: There will be more officially licensed brands onboarding to Cryptoys - the team has signed an NDA so can’t reveal more yet 👀

13/ Castle Grayskull 🏰

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 💰

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

19/ Mini-games 🎮

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! 🔥
