Eight Hours Token (EHrT) will be listed on BitMart, a premier global digital asset trading platform, on September 30, 2020 (7:00 PM PDT). The tokens are a core asset used in VIMworld, the world’s first smart non-fungible token (NFT) collectible, gaming and rewards ecosystem created by the 8Hours Foundation.
Smart NFTs called VIMs are unique collectibles tokens that represent and prove the ownership of an object or collectible. Using innovative NFC/RFID technologies, they can also be attached to physical objects such as toys, cards, game pieces, figurines, and more.
Apart from the usual utilities of a platform token, such as paying for items including VIMs on the platform, paying for trading fees on our market place, or just staking for discounted services, EHrT tokens have a very powerful utility that no other platform tokens have. EHrT tokens are used to increase value for the VIMs, which can be “fed” and locked up into VIMs to level up its tiers to unlock gameplay benefits and token rewards.
Thus, VIMs are not just normal NFT collectibles, but a well-crafted value-generating and lockup mechanism. The rewards and token economics already rival or exceed that of the most acclaimed DeFi projects.
Depending on their rarity, and from which famous artist or IP a VIM is created from, VIMs that are sold from a range of $50-$150 (retail price) have seen up to 7,307% returns in the secondary market at a maximum range of $3,500-$18,900, proving the value and demand for these Smart NFTs.
These VIMs can be bought on the VIMworld website. Every batch of VIMs released to the market has sold out in less than 20 seconds, with more than 1,000 users worldwide bidding for each batch at the same time. Just within one month, VIMworld has gathered more than 3,000 active users and more than 7,000 VIMs owned and fed. The user base is growing rapidly daily in both the Chinese and Western markets.
VIMs are the only NFTs in the crypto world with token economics that rewards both collectors and investors, making it the first of its kind. In its first month of launching, 411 Million EHrT tokens (23% of the circulating supply) are soft-locked in VIMs. The price of EHrT has grown from $0.00072 to $0.019, which is a 2,506% increase. With the BitMart listing, it is expected that more growth will occur as the user base significantly increases.
The VIMworld and 8Hours ecosystem are backed by prominent blockchain and FinTech industry players. Partners and advisors include Fenbushi Capital, VeChain Foundation, CREAM, and VCs in Silicon Valley. To ensure the entertainment and gaming aspect of the ecosystem is attractive, the ecosystem has partnered with companies such as Catan, and boasts advisors such as Michael Katz, former President at Atari and Mattel, as well as Kai Huang, founder of Guitar Hero.
John Dempsey, Co-Founder and CEO at VIMworld and 8Hours Foundation, said:
“We’re happy to bring our next-generation smart NFT ecosystem token to traders and investors at BitMart exchange.
