MIDNIGHTREBELS-CASTLEVANIA

CASTLEVANIA’S NFT COLLECTION SELLS FOR OVER $162,000 USD

Castlevania has finally reached its 35th anniversary and Konami marked the occasion by holding an auction for 14 NFTs. The non-fongible tokens were sold at auction for more than US$150,000, exceeding the goal of the auction.

There were 14 NFTs in the collection, which was dubbed the Konami Memorial NFT, and each one has since been sold. Dracula’s Pixel Art was among the pieces in the collection, which sold for a whopping US$26,732 at auction. The total amount raised through the collection amounted to more than US$162,000 in total. However, according to VGC, the OpenSea marketplace takes a cut of every transaction, meaning Konami made approximately US$157,000 from the transaction.

For those who are unfamiliar with the term, an NFT is a type of digital asset that only belongs to its owner. Apparently, each of these “artworks” is one-of-a-kind and “irreplaceable.” Every time an NFT is sold, a royalty is paid to the artist who designed it. In other words, Konami will continue to profit as long as NFTs are traded on a regular basis.

Returning to the introduction, Konami’s 35th anniversary was actually celebrated last year, and Metal Gear Solid is the only game in the Metal Gear series to have celebrated the milestone in the same year.

Many people in the gaming community (and even the general public) are strongly opposed to NFTs because they consume a large amount of electricity and are harmful to the environment. As an additional benefit of NFTs, some of them are practically digital images that can be downloaded by anyone via the internet, leading some to believe they are being used as a get-rich scheme.
