Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen Selling NFT 'Unique Collectibles' for Development Fundraising

The team behind Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen is selling unique assets as NFTs to help fundraise for the game.

If you’re unfamiliar with what an NFT is, it’s an abbreviation for non-fungible token. In the most basic of explanations, you can effectively “mint” unique digital items, like digital art, on a blockchain. This item then becomes non-interchangeable. You can then buy and sell that NFT (item) just like a physical asset. However, you’ll purchase and sell that NFT using cryptocurrency.

The team behind Pantheon, it seems, are doing just that as was announced in a Tweet earlier,

“Pantheon's #NFT Fundraising Site is now live with unique collectibles (no in game items). Own a piece of Pantheon history. All proceeds go directly to development.”

In the linked URL, you’ll be able to see the newly minted assets from the team. It’s important to note that the prices listed are for Ethereum. For example, as of this writing, the current asset on auction has a minimum bid of 0.14 ETH, or roughly $253.
