Neopets coming to Quidd

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.

More information on Quidd is available here. You may have interacted with them as they offer digital trading cards and collectibles for many brands including Funko, Hello Kitty, and Disney. They are now also moving into the Blockchain space..

What’s Your Passion Jewelry Prize Code Update!

Gilroy is going to be super busy!

What’s Your Passion Jewelry has provided the following exciting update about Virtual Prize Codes with their Neopets merchandise!

Hey Neopians!

Since the Neopets community has been so wonderful and supportive, we have added a new bonus system to our Neopets merchandise!

As many of y’all know, we shipped out the majority of the new pin orders… and many of you are already receiving them! If you ordered 4 or more pins, you’ll see an extra code included that is marked T2…

Now, not only will every pin come with an individual rare item code (T1), but with a pin purchase totaling $45 or more, each order will also receive a super rare item code (T2) as an extra bonus! The jewelry will continue to come with ultra-rare (T3) codes!

We’ve also been approved to extend the T2 codes to anyone that has purchased 4+ pins previously. We’ll be sending out additional emails with individual codes. Please bear with us as we go through the backlog and prepare to send out the codes.

Thank you!
Ari and Avital
