Megadeth Launch NFT Card Packs
This past spring, Megadeth sold their first NFT for eighteen large. So, understandably, the band is going back to that well.
The difference is that this time they’re doing “packs” of NFT “cards,” not a one-a-kind thing that only one schmuck can purchase.
Specifically, they’ll be making 1,500 “All Access” packs, which will sell for $125 each, and 2,500 “General Admission” packs, which are a mere $10.
…and 2,500 “General Admission” packs, which are a mere $10.
The All Access pack “features complete sets of 10 Collector Craftable Cards, a set of four Rare Craftable Cards, one Challenge Craftable Collector’s NFT Card, and one exclusive physical commemorative Collector Challenge Coin which will only be minted once.” The GA pack “includes five pre-minted craftable cards.”
I don’t know what a craftable card is, or what makes a Challenge Craftable Collector’s NFT Card different from a regular or rare craftable card or a pre-minted craftabale card. I know I’m an old man yelling at clouds here, but this all seems very bullshitty to me.
Still, if this interests you, both packs go on sale to Thursday, August 26 at noon PDT for fan club members before going on sale to the general public on Friday, August 27 at 10 a.m. PDT. Get ’em here. According to the press release, “A credit card or PayPal and a Wax Wallet will be required for all purchases.” So we can add a “Wax Wallet” to the list of shit I don’t understand here.
Megadeth have a new album, The Sick, The Dying, and The Dead currently in the works, but it’s unclear when that will be released. After sacking David Ellefson amidst a sex scandal, the band had Ellefson’s bass lines re-recorded, although we’re not sure by who at this juncture.
We do know the band’s former bassist, James LoMenzo, has re-joined them for their current tour with Lamb of God, Trivium, and Hatebreed. Remaining dates on the trek are as follows:
