Decentraland-based Battle Racers’ pre-sale raises 482 ETH in first week

Its initial popularity caused some technical gremlins, but at the conclusion of its discounted early bird period, it’s clear the pre-sale for Altitude Game’s forthcoming Battle Racers is set to be a great success.

During the first seven days of its month-long pre-sale, 481.9 ETH (worth over $125,000) has been spent buying the game’s crates.

Each of these ERC20 tokens contain the components required to build a racing car. They come in four flavours: Gold (costing 0.7 ETH), Silver (0.3), Bronze (0.1) and Wood (0.035).

Unsurprisingly the cheapest option — Wood — sold the best, both in terms of total number of crates sold (56% of the total) and the proportion of available crates sold (55% of the available 3,420 Wood crates have been purchased).

However, as is often the case, the second most popular crate — at least in terms of the proportion of available crates sold — was Gold, with 33% of the 1,140 available Gold crates now sold.

Obviously, Gold crates also accounted for the largest single slice of revenue — 48% of the total 481.9 ETH.

Still time to buy

Altitude Games encouraged interested players to make their purchases early, offering a 15% early bird discount for sales during the first two days, dropping to 9% and then lower as the week-long early bird period progressed.

Although this discount is now over, players can still get involved with the pre-sale, which runs until 21 June. And as well as purchasing through Metamask, the game also has a fiat payment option using Nifty Gateway.

Battle Racers will launch later this summer when the Decentraland blockchain-based virtual world (in which it’s embedded) launches.
