Quidd, “The original digital collectibles marketplace”, has just posted the following on their social media accounts. A formal announcement will be coming tomorrow.
EDIT 10/20: The info has just been removed from Social Media but is still posted in their Discord Server.
EDIT 10/21: The message has been deleted from discord and replaced with a generic coming soon message with no image.
EDIT 10/22: In an AMA on their discord, Quidd CEO and Co-Founder Michael Bramlage has stated that their release has been pushed back until January at the latest, which appears to be a direct result of the catastrophe that is Metaverse.
Note the following is presumed to apply to the Neopets collectibles but they would not confirm/deny what the new channel was despite previously sharing the below image.
On the delay – “In the case of the new channel, our partners wanted to put a little more time between another project that they dropped and our project. So, it’s a delay, not a cancellation. I would say January at the latest. There are some really cool aspects of this new channel; if you don’t mind, I’ll share….“
On the release – “NEW CHANNEL: (a) between 30 and 40 sets approved; (b) channel will be launched as a “season” with definitive start and end date; (c) set drops will be regularly scheduled on tuesday, thursdays, and sundays; (d) free packs will be provided for most sets, especially to OGs; (e) there will be a contest using the channel rank system where rankers can win a portion of a prize pool that is funded from our aftermarket sales fee. We — and I don’t think anyone else — has done a channel drop like this before, so it’s a cool new territory to be in…“
On whether or not they will be mintable – “The new channel will not be. It could always be at a later date. But we will not sell them as “mintables from the get-go” like we will some other new channels that are coming.“
On plans to bring in more users “We’re building our marketing team back up right now and will be doing a fairly significant go-to-market in Q1 2022; that means, after about 2 years of “heads-down building”, we’re turning the “marketing spigot” back on, big time.“
