About a week and a half ago, on a not-so-special morning, I received a PM from Glasgow, asking me to contact ZEU$ about a very interesting NFT card project. It involved my first use of the word 'Shoon'. He seemed pretty excited about it, and so was I. The earth2.cards team was planning to release its first card collection ever, and I, as a creator who helped coin the word, would be the owner of its first minted legendary edition card. You can't imagine the excitement at that very moment. I knew it was the start of something huge, a new take on the trend if you will. Now what makes this card so special, is the fact that it was the first 3D animated card, widely hyped by the community even before its release.
'Shoon' was the first-ever expression made by the community and widely used by all, including developers in both formal or informal occasions. The word I had created as a joke ended up becoming the symbol of our early involvement in this futuristic project, the trust of the community towards the high administration, the light we are all looking for when nothing new happens in a 10 hours time period... Now, this leads the way to even more fantastic community insides such as "Shegg", "Shleep" and for the heretics, "Shame".
This card represents the core foundation of the fantastic chemistry this community has, and paved the way for even more amazing cards. Earth2.Cards has a store on AtomicHub and the NFTs are on the WAX blockchain. When I checked this morning, some auctions of the Shoon NFT fetched a whopping 2900% than the original listed price by the creators.
If you feel like checking the amazing Shoon card or the upcoming NFT cards, you might as well join and have a chat with us on the earth2.cards discord (https://discord.gg/tAuxyuvqk9).
In the future, I would like to see cards representing the main eras of Earth 2. Starting with the Hype Era (November 2020 to January 2021) and gradually capturing the overall community and great milestones we have achieved together on Earth2. I can't wait for the launch of the second card which seems it's the Kraken guild card and some very rare illustrations of the Kraken!
