8 Bit Grenades

What are 8 Bit Grenades?

8 Bit Grenades are animated digital assets known as an NFTs or non-fungible tokens which are recorded on the Ethereum blockchain.

Think of 8 Bit Grenades as trading cards, but in digital form with a unique identity to prove ownership.

Just like trading cards, you can buy, sell, and trade.

The value can go up or down based on a number of factors, including popularity and scarcity.

Each animated asset shows a grenade exploding, revealing a charm.

Scarcity

Scarcity is one of the biggest allures of NFT collecting.

Generally, the more scarce one is, the more it’s worth.

For example, aliens, apes, and zombies are the most rare within the Cryptopunk collection by Larvalabs.

Five of the apes and aliens have sold for at least a million dollars each — the highest over $7 Million dollars!

Just like Cryptopunks, some of the 8 Bit Grenades are more rare than others.

8 Bit Grenades Collecting Guide

Every single 8 Bit Grenade is unique, or 1/1.

Each of these grenades has five properties including the grenade, the pin, the blast, the charm, and the background.

Although the color of the grenade and the color blast plays a part, the charm is what makes each grenade completely unique and creates scarcity.

Other properties that will eventually have an impact on scarcity are the background, pin, and possibly the grenade type.

Charms

There are two types of charms: rare and common.

Rare

Rare charms are one of a kind.

Unicorns and UFO are two example of rare charms.

You will only find one of each kind in the entire 8 bit grenade collection.

Approximate overall percentage of charms that are RARE: 20% or less.

Common Charms

These charms come in clusters of 5, however, they are still unique to each other.

For example, hearts.

There are five hearts but each one will be slightly different in style: a red heart, a red heart with an anchor, a red hear with an arrow, a black heart, and a broken heart.

Another example, diamonds.

There will be five diamonds, each one a different color.

Approximate overall percentage of charms that are COMMON: at least 80%

Backgrounds

The traditional background for an 8 Bit Grenade is red on red.

Backgrounds with alternative color combinations are planned on being introduced down the line.
