Aston Martin has launched its first NFT collection designed in cooperation with The Tiny Digital Factory. A total of 3,000 NFTs will be available starting on December 18 this year.
The Tiny Digital Factory is a developer and publisher, which is also the creator of Infinite Drive. This is a mobile first NFT racing platform and car enthusiast’s metaverse that allows you to collect cars from the most popular and prestigious brands in the automotive industry.
For its new collaboration with the British automaker, the company will bring three impressive cars to the mobile universe.
A first wave of 3,000 Aston Martin NFT cars will be available when the collection goes live on Magic Eden on 18 December (whitelist) and 19 December (general sale) 2022.
The Polygon NFT cars are the new Vantage V8 Coupe, the Vantage GT3 racing model, and the 1980 Vantage V8 famously seen in the 15th James Bond film, The Living Daylights.
Urvit Goel, VP Business Development, Gaming & Platform at Polygon said:
“Polygon aims to accelerate the development of exciting blockchain-based games, and Infinite Drive certainly fits that description. Following their successful initial mint back in August, Infinite Drive is primed to really take off in 2023 and we’re excited that the first ever Aston Martin NFT cars will be available on Polygon. As a member of the Polygon community we look forward to supporting the Infinite Drive team to make the project one of the first mass-market web3 smash hits.”
All three cars will be available on the Polygon blockchain for you to buy and race in the next-generation Infinite Drive metaverse.
Aston Martin assures each NFT has been made to perfectly match its real-world counterpart. The best part is that these virtual cars can actually be used in the closed Alpha of the Infinite Drive metaverse on iOS and Android.
In the Alpha, NFT holders can view their collections and race against each other on officially licensed tracks.
From early 2023, the full game will be free to play on iOS and Android with features such as an NFT marketplace, seasonal events, and an environment in which the users will be able to lease their cars to other players.
“It’s truly remarkable that [our] vision has resonated so strongly with one of the world’s leading carmakers in Aston Martin – so much so that they have chosen to launch their first ever NFT cars with us,”
“We’re still early in our journey, but we’re confident that Infinite Drive will become a poster child for the meaningful use of web3 technology in gaming and collectible digital assets.”
