What is Trophy Hunters?
Looking to join the expanding list of on-chain P2E card games, is the Evolution Card Collection from Trophy Hunters. Consisting of 5,715 playing cards, the collection revolves around 12 key characters, differentiated by more than 1500 unique traits. During mint, buyers will also be given the opportunity to claim a membership card, granting access to exclusive benefits such as the right to get a mintpass (future mints), and the right to vote. The membership card will be both a digital asset as well as a physical card, and will be free to all (plus gas).
According to the founder, the goal of Trophy Hunters is to discover and open up the possibilities within Web3 through transparency to the marketplace. He states that the playing cards are just the first step which suggests that is more to come as the project evolves. 200 ETH has been promised as a reward fund, equating to 50% on mint takings. This will be shared amongst over 203 players, with first place taking 20 ETH, diluting down to 0.5 ETH for the final prize winners. Trophy hunters claim to be a private club that produces collections, as opposed to being the name of the collection itself, somewhat comparing themselves to teams such as Yuga Labs and Truth Labs. The Evolution Card collection is their first project, so it remains to be seen if they can establish themselves in the space.
Kicking off with mint, we currently only have details on season 1 of the project.
- Season 1 Contest – 203 winners to share 200 ETH between them.
- Free PFP – Holders will be able to mint their own PFP NFT
- Keep It Hot – All token holders will be able to take part in contests
- Alpha Access – Holders will get free access to the Trophy Hunters Alpha group
- 3D Metaverse Compatible PFP – Free NFT that can plug right into the Metaverse
- Game Dev – Blockchain based game with Evolution Card integration
- To Be Continued – Season 2 details to be revealed in time
The Trophy Hunters website only displays 2 individuals as the team, and despite our usual detective work, we were unable to dig out many more. The team is either incredibly small, or it’s just a case of no information provided.
Founder – Andrew
Andrew, known as Huggy on Twitter, has doxxed himself on Instagram. Whilst he has identified himself as a Blockchain project manager, it is unclear what his background is within the NFT space.
Investor and Advisor – Yegor
Based in Spain, Yegor is the founder and CEO of REMY Robotics. His history with NFTs isn’t obvious, so we can’t be sure how impactful his advice will be. However, it’s likely his investment goes a long way considering the industry his company lies within.
Community Manager – Ben 10
Trophy Hunters has been able to align itself with some well established names within the NFT space, such as Champs Only, Kaiju Kingz and Doodles Alpha. Whilst this isn’t a marker for guaranteed success, it does provide some encouragement that it has some big eyes on it who have, at the very least, a passing interest on how it develops. Further to this, we’re seeing more projects looking to bring something new as this bear market continues.
Whilst blockchain based card games already exist, it’s good to see Trophy Hunters’ entry, being a project with some exciting utility. The opportunity to win a share of 200 ETH is also an attractive proposition and when combined with a strong community. This, and a very cost effective mint price could be what we need during these ongoing, troublesome conditions.
Whilst as individuals, those behind the project may have had success with NFT collections (although this is not specified). As a team, this is its first foray into this world. Not only is it launching its first collection, but it’s going to be a P2E, on-chain game, which it is an incredibly difficult space to thrive in.
As of now, we’ve seen hundreds of games appear, however, few have been able to disrupt the space enough to make a long lasting impact. Further to this, Gods Unchained could be put forward as one of the market leaders in the NFT card niche, and that’s led by the former game director of Magic: The Gathering, a globally loved franchise. Trophy Hunters doesn’t have this level of expertise on the project, or if they do, it hasn’t been shared to us. Ultimately, as with all projects, NFT games live and die by the community. It will be fascinating to see if the project can fulfill the early promise it is showing.
