MMO NFT game SkateX has an exciting addition to its roster with the addition of professional skateboarder Stevie Williams. The game is currently being produced by Block Tackle – a new web3 game studio. The announcement states that Stevie Williams will be attending as an advisor.
Stevie Williams, the founder of skatewear apparel website DGK, will help in a number of ways. He will bring his unique style to the upcoming game and contribute to its development. In addition, he advises on the design of skateboards and streetwear for SkateX.
In a statement, Stevie Williams said, “I get offers and opportunities that involve skating all the time,” Stevie Williams said. “But I pass almost everything on, because projects have to be authentic and include culture; They must have roots based on legitimate skate history. I found out about SkateX not long ago and it’s clear that SkateX is for the culture and that’s what I’m all about. Prepare your boards.”
The SkateX game brings board culture to the virtual world
The Stevie Williams decks and merchandise for use in the SkateX game are available as NFTs. This partnership will help create a custom look for all skateboarders in the game.
This is important as individuality and the ability to express yourself through clothing and board are crucial aspects of skate culture. Users can now do the same with NFTs in the virtual world of SkateX.
So far, the project has proven to be extremely successful. Although the game is slated for release later this year, they’ve already sold out in minutes. The first NFT collection of SkateX 1080 3D animated skateboards went on sale on April 5th via the Magic Eden NFT marketplace. Significantly, it sold out within minutes. Finally, the next SkateX NFT drop is due in May.
