Flow Ecosystem Update - Feb 18, 2021

VIV3 Marketplace

VIV3 has been crushing it over the past few weeks.

If you haven’t heard of VIV3 yet, it’s the first general NFT marketplace on Flow, allowing artists, game studios and brands to mint and trade digital assets and artworks seamlessly. The marketplace sold out all their listings within 48 hours from the launch and demand has far surpassed new drops since then. Are you ready for more?

The next big drop on VIV3 will be with long-time digital artist veteran Ben Mauro. With over 12+ years in the game and film industry, he worked on projects such as Call of Duty, Halo, Metal Gear Solid (film), ELYSIUM, Chappie, The Hobbit Trilogy, Valerian, Mortal Engines, The Amazing Spiderman 2, Man of Steel among many others. Some of his past clients include NASA, Nvidia, 20th Century Fox, Legendary Pictures, LucasFilm, Pictures Animation, Microsoft and Discovery Channel.

The Drop

In the coming weeks, Ben Mauro will be releasing his first-ever limited edition collectible drop on VIV3! It is a trading card series called EVOLUTION consisting of 21 original cards. The 21 cards will be split into each tier as follows:

  • Legendary cards: 4
  • Rare cards: 6
  • Common cards: 11
