NFT Chess Club
Because chess has always been meta
From the heart
The chess club was never about business, that's what makes chess pure. That is also what makes it so we will be left out in the ever more exclusive metaverse due to chess being a skill game that is unprofitable. The land in the metaverses is already being scooped up by speculators, big corporations, and the 0.1%. Love it or hate it we can all agree free-market can be brutally expensive for the little guy, ESPECIALLY when we want to play a board game instead of engaging in competitive commerce.
The issue that we, the chess community, will face in the coming years is to yet again be relegated to renting a basement from some off-the-grid indie art gallery for 5 MANA per hour to congregate to play chess. I say heck no! The grand chess halls of a bygone era can be created once more! Chess Stadium can and will be constructed! We aim to unite the chess community under one banner, NFT Chess Club!
A unique phase-zero collection of 10,000 Chess Knights has been lovingly crafted to act as your founding membership card to our exponentially growing chess club and community. The Grand Master has donated a plot of land in Decentraland (20,-60) and has self-funded the building of our first 5-story chess tower! We aim to continue buying lands and building chess clubs across all the metaverses available today and what will inevitably come tomorrow. Our foundation will build chess towers and chess halls where members can hang out and play one of the few games that are just as good in the metaverse as it is in real life. In those spaces, we will commit to growing the game both IRL and in the metaverse. Cash prize tournaments will be held and, eventually, a chess-specific stadium will be built.
To kick-start our chess journey the NFT Chess Club will be hosting a high-stakes chess tournament on our yet-to-be-announced chess platform. Do you think you have what it takes to win the NFT Chess Club Cup and be crowned our inaugural champion? Holding at least one NFT Chess Club membership, in the form of a Chess Knight NFT will be your ticket to admission!
The phase zero collection of our inaugural Chess Knights will mint for $150 each, chain to be determined. The holding of one Chess Knight will entitle the owner with one irrevocable lifetime membership to the NFT Chess Club across the metaverse and beyond. You will, of course, be free to trade your Chess Knight on the various exchanges, but we hope that you see the value in being a holder vs a speculator! We are going to do everything in our power to have this project as well built as possible before we start the minting process. It is only after we are ready to offer some real and functional that we will be comfortable to start taking memberships. This means it is all self-funded by the Grandmaster and his loyal Chess Guard Jannasaries until it is ready to go, so please be patient, we are not here to make a mint but rather to make sure that when you mint we have built something worth your time and money!
