Reading Time: 2 minutes

The collaboration will be kicked off by an auction of five super rare Anomaly NFTs on October 23, followed by a general sale of mystery boxes with NFTs on the new Traden.pro platform starting on Oct 26, 2021.

Opera, the personal browser of choice for hundreds of millions of people and the creator of the world’s first web browser with web3 support, through its subsidiary Blueboard Limited, is launching a collaboration with Anomaly, a famous CS:GO streamer with a global audience of Counter Strike: Global Offensive fans. The initiative features the minting of a set of unique Anomaly NFTs and will be kicked off with an auction of five super rare Anomaly NFTs. They will be auctioned off using WETH on the Polygon network.

This move is one that connects Opera’s efforts within the blockchain and gaming space. With Opera Gaming, the browser company has developed Opera GX, a web browser dedicated to gamers, as well as GameMaker Studio 2, a free-to-use engine for game creation. Blueboard’s NFT initiative is offered as an enjoyable means with which to engage with the digital assets created in collaboration with your favorite streamers, starting with Anomaly. It also presents a new way of interacting between influencers and their fans.

The integration of gaming and blockchain continues to grow. With the creation of a set of unique gamer and influencer-centric NFTs, Blueboard wants to explore increased scalability and lower transaction pricing, using the Polygon blockchain to offer an easy entry point for gamers who are new to NFTs.

The initial auction of the five rare NFTs will be followed by a sale of “Anomaly Cassettes”, mystery boxes including more NFTs. The Opera x Anomaly NFTs are a set of ERC-1155 tokens accompanied by stunning visuals. Users will be able to buy the “Anomaly Cassette”, a surprise box with a given NFT priced at an affordable USD 9.90. Following the purchase of the Cassette, the buyer will find out which video NFT they got. Hidden in the Cassettes are one of the five NFTs: “The Anomaly”, “Endless Loop”, “Troll Machine”, “The A Fuel” and “Take My Mask”. Among the Cassettes will also be nine, individually marked super rare NFT’s from each of the five designs. After purchase using FIAT or WETH, the NFTs will be stored on Traden.pro, Opera’s NFT marketplace.

Combinations of Opera x Anomaly NFTs will also grant additional privileges to Anomaly’s fans. Depending on the combination of NFTs acquired, users may be allowed to join a private club with Anomaly on Discord, play CS:Go with him or receive a personalized gift. The NFT can be updated and the interactions with Anomaly recorded by the blockchain.
