Cross-chain NFT platform Magic Eden has announced it is celebrating the start of March with Mint Madness. The NFT marketplace is rolling out a series of free mints for over a dozen Web3 gaming projects starting Friday, March 3, 2023.

Over the following weeks, the company will distribute free NFTs from popular games across Polygon, Ethereum, and Solana. 

Mint Madness

Magic Eden believes the free mints from Mint Madness will be a fun way for games to enter the Web3 space and connect with native audiences. The platform is proud to support the participating games as they enter the world of NFTs. 

Among the projects distributing free NFTs during Mint Madness, nine will be on Polygon, three on Ethereum, and one on Solana

Planet Mojo, Meta Star Strikers, and Alaska Gold Rush will be the first games to roll out free minting on the Magic Eden Launchpad within the first two weeks of March. Shrapnel, an FPS title, will be the only project to feature cross-chain mint through Magic Eden, launching on Polygon on March 15 and Ethereum on March 22. 

Petobots, Blast Royale, Rogue Nation, Tearing Spaces, Freckle Trivia, Realm Hunter, Legendary Heroes Unchained, and Papu Superstars will be the remaining games that will be providing free NFT mints. 

Making It Competitive

Chris Akhavan, Chief Gaming Officer at Magic Eden, shared:

 "We've observed that many games entering web3 do not necessarily need to use NFTs as a monetization tool. However, NFTs are a really important user engagement tool for them to share their vision and work with a highly captive and invested audience. We think we're the best partner to help them amplify their hard work and bridge them into the NFT ecosystem."

The NFT marketplace recently expanded its investment portfolio by backing its first set of gaming studios.

To add to the fun in its newest initiative, “Mint Madness,” Magic Eden will post leaderboards across social media channels. This will track users’ NFT trades from the Mint Madness collection on secondary marketplaces. 

The top ten traders by volume, limited to Polygon collections, will get a chain to win from a prize pool of 20,000 MATIC, converting to $23,445 at press time. Additionally, the first-place winner will receive 4500 MATIC, or $5275.
