Quick take:

  • With the Mintables feature, only a self-custodial wallet is required to use Quidd.
  • Mintables provides off-the-shelf interoperability with leading Ethereum NFT marketplaces.
  • The Atari x Quidd Collection is the first to be launched with the Mintables feature.

Animoca Brands and its subsidiary, Quidd, an NFT marketplace, today announced the launch of Mintables, a feature that enables collectors to mint and unmint digital collectibles into NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain.

Mintables was launched to address some of the pain points in the NFT space, such as the cost and difficulty of minting an NFT for non-crypto natives, while NFT enthusiasts face the issue of having their officially licensed branded NFTs locked down in custodial wallets and centralised applications.

With Mintable, Quidd claims to dramatically reduce the cost, time and complexity for crypto novices to mint their first NFT as cryptocurrency is not required. Users will only need a self-custodial wallet like Metamask.

For seasoned NFT enthusiasts, Mintables provides off-the-shelf interoperability with leading Ethereum NFT marketplaces such as OpenSea and Rarible. Additionally, Mintables can be unminted and reminted to new blockchains, at the owner’s discretion. 

This unique utility – a first in the NFT industry – provides portability, enabling NFT owners to bring their NFTs to major blockchain ecosystems if and whenever they want. The first NFT collection to be launched with the Mintables feature is the Atari x Quidd Collection which consists of digital trading cards and 3D video game cartridges of the beloved arcade and console game.

“With Mintables, we are delivering user choice in addition to true digital ownership,” said Michael Bramlage, CEO and Co-Founder of Quidd. “Why should the platform decide if a digital item should be on a blockchain, or even which blockchain? The Mintables initiative gives real power to the collectors.”  

Officially licensed Atari digital collectibles on Quidd are now available to mint and unmint to the Ethereum blockchain for an introductory price of $3 per mint. In the near future, Quidd will open up more collections for minting, and will add support for more blockchains, including WAX, Flow, and Binance Smart Chain.

Mined from the Atari archives, the Atari x Quidd collection highlights the people behind the games, including the legendary Atari employee Al Alcorn, and Dona Bailey, one of the first female programmers at Atari and co-creator of the classic game Centipede.

Since 2016, Quidd has worked with the world’s most prominent brands, including Disney, HBO, Funko, and over 300 others on digital collectibles. 

The NFT marketplace is currently collaborating with GAMEE, the play-and-earn casual mobile gaming subsidiary of Animoca Brands, to launch Mintables of the Atari x Quidd Collection during a week-long event in Arc8, GAMEE’s play-and-earn mobile gaming platform.

Owners of Atari x Quidd NFTs will be able to participate in an exclusive Arc8 tournament with a prize pool of QUIDD tokens. More details will be announced later this month.
