Motorverse Corporation, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, announced the launch of the Torque Squad project. The collection will feature 8,888 racing avatar NFTs called “Torqies” that acts as a gateway to the Motorverse ecosystem. Partnered with the REVV Motorsport ecosystem, Torque’s team comes with a heavy hand while receiving support from top racers, including Juan Pablo Montoya, Joey Logano, and Brad Binder.
The Torque Squad NFTs
Generated from over 180 traits, Torque Squad NFTs grant the owner access to exclusive merchandise and motorsport events in real life and in virtual. Tina Guo and Steve Mazzaro also composed a “Soundtrack to the Motorverse” on Torque Squads’ official site. In addition to granting access to the motoverse ecosystem, each NFT will also be a key to future Motoverse collections.
“The Torque Squad is the first step into the Motorverse. We’re building some amazing products for motorsports enthusiasts with Animoca Brands. – Remaining fully committed to contributing to a metaverse based on openness and interoperability.” Matt Solomon, co-founder and CEO of Motorverse
Set for the beginning of April, the Torque squad’s collection will feature three unique mints for their community.
- ‘OG Sale’ April 2nd
- ‘Whitelist’ April 3rd-5th
- ‘Public’ April 6th
Each mint will feature a different “mint price,” starting at 0.064 ETH for OGs and moving to 0.08 by the release of the public launch. Furthermore, OG members will be able to purchase during the public mint. All members can mint up to 4 NFTs per transaction during the public sale. However, users are allowed to hold up to 50 per wallet. As Motoverse moves forward with Animoca, gear heads inside the NFT space are eager for further announcements from the team.
“This is the first mint intended for true motorsport enthusiasts. Petrol heads, speed fiends, EV lovers, competitors and engineers with a shared passion for the new frontiers of motorsport. We are for the Nostalgic and the Trailblazers — for the Collectors, Players and Community Members.”- Torque Squad
