Neopets is excited to announce a partnership with Raydium, an automated market maker (AMM) and launchpad powered by Solana, to bring a collection of NFTs based on characters from the 20 years of the Neopian history and lore. The greater Neopets community will now have access to digital memorabilia from their beloved brand.
“Over the past 20 plus years, nearly 100 million people have engaged with Neopets characters both in the game and through merchandise and other branded items. Extending to NFTs give those users as well as NFT collectors the chance to experience and own part of the history of Neopets” says Jim Czulewicz, President and CEO of JumpStart Games, Inc., the company that owns Neopets. “For us this is another opportunity to extend the brand into new markets and to new users in a format that is both modern and valued.”
Collectors and fans will have the opportunity to acquire one of 20,500 equally unique, algorithmically generated lovable Neopets NFTs with variable backgrounds, assets, clothing, and personality – 7 varying trait categories. An official launch date will be shared as we get closer but look for the drop to be in early to mid-October.
Neopets is pleased to be partnering with Raydium’s DropZone as one of the first on the platform. Raydium’s DropZone is an initiative by Raydium to promote the growth of NFTs on Solana while supporting project teams like Neopets with the infrastructure needed to launch the collections.
