Thoroughbred horse racing metaverse Silks has announced a compelling Black Friday Deal, bundling a Common Silks Genesis Avatar and a Racehorse for just $750 with a 25/30% discount on the actual price depending on the ETH price (Avatar’s price is 0.25 ETH with Horse price being $750). The offer will be live from Friday morning to Monday night.
A Deal to not Miss Out on
Silks Thoroughbred Racehorses was one of the most-awaited NFT collections of this year. The unique digital collectibles mirror real-world thoroughbred horses in the metaverse. They track the lineage, physical traits, development, productivity, and life events of their IRL counterparts on the blockchain.
Given that thoroughbred yearlings sell for a fortune every year ahead of their first race, the Silks 2022 Genesis Yearling Sale is receiving widespread attention. Silks Racehorses will mature along with the Yearlings. Moreover, they will accrue rewards for holders every time the IRL thoroughbred wins a race or breeds offspring. The current crop of yearlings will begin racing as early as next year.
Both crypto and non-crypto users are stocking up on the NFTs due to their collectible value and earning potential. Users need to hold Silks Genesis Avatars to participate in the sale, however. Silks Genesis Avatars represent each participant’s unique identity in the Silks metaverse.
The first batch of Silks Genesis Avatars sold out of the 5000 supply in a few days, eventually taking it to the top NFT sales charts on OpenSea. The project has re-opened the SilksGenesis Avatar collection to keep up with the rising demand and make the metaverse accessible to a larger user base. A majority of the second set of 5000 is now sold out. But you can grab what is left of the collection from the official website or buy one from OpenSea. When buying secondhand, make sure the Avatar hasn’t used up its 2022 Genesis Yearlings Sale Mint Pass yet.
With the Silks Crypto Black Friday Deal, users can get a Common Silks Genesis Avatar and a Racehorse Delivery Pass for just $750. It’s a steal, factoring in the growing demand for Silks NFTs.
High-Profile Investors are Stocking up on Silks
NFT collectors who hold high-profile assets like CryptoPunks, CloneX, Autoglyphs, and Mutant Ape Yacht Club are adding Silks NFTs to their wallets. Despite the bear market conditions, Silks is seeing large demand from the crypto and thoroughbred horse racing communities.
Since thoroughbred horses are beyond the financial reach of most, small-scale investors and thoroughbred fans are buying Silks Horses instead to cash in on the underlying IRL horse.
Much of the popularity of Silks Genesis Avatars can be explained by the enthusiasm around the Silks metaverse in the offing. The derivative virtual world will introduce gamified business models with a wide range of income opportunities for NFT holders.
For example, there will be horse farms and stables in the Silks metaverse, just like the real world. Users can buy or rent Silks Land plots and monetize them. Pinhooking and real estate sales are other interesting income opportunities. Land, Stables, and Horse Farms are also launched as NFTs on Silks. As the metaverse grows and evolves, so will the monetization opportunities.
Silks is the first project to bring the thrill of multi-billion-dollar thoroughbred horse racing to the metaverse. The unique approach helps it draw traction from both the crypto and non-crypto sides of the world. Given that thoroughbred horses compete for over $1,000,000,000 in prize money, Silks Racehorses make one of the top NFT investments for 2023.
Claim Your Silks Avatars Before the Price Takes Off
There are only 10,000 Silks Genesis Avatars. If you’re planning to join the game and collect rewards in 2023, you need to grab them now. While you can always buy a Silks Avatar from secondary markets, the price may not be in your favor in the coming months.
The unique combination of colors and patterns of a Silks Genesis Avatar creates a unique “crest” that represents the holder’s dynasty in the Game of Silks. All assets you own in the Silks metaverse will be featured by the theme.
Here are some of the top perks and privileges of holding a Silks Genesis Avatar:
- Racing rewards in the Game of Silks
- Lifetime mint pass for the annual Yearling Sales
- Unique traits and rarity that determine its value
- A fully functional 3D character to navigate the Silks metaverse.
- Exclusive experiences, giveaways, and IRL events
The broad array of income streams on Silks, combined with its derivative makeup, make Silks Genesis Avatars and Silks Horses two of the best NFT collections this year.
