Paramount’s Star Trek NFT Instalment Sells Out in Minutes

The Star Trek NFT is a digital collectible item built on the Ethereum blockchain. The game allows players to purchase and own characters from across the series, allowing them to interact with others in-game using their tokenized character as well. In just minutes of its release it sold out due to overwhelming demand.

After months of anticipation, Star Trek’s foray into the metaverse on Saturday was a major success, with the ‘Continuum’ NFT project selling out in seconds. Intuitively, the initiative was launched on the NFT platform of Paramount, the series’ IP owners, with assistance from blockchain specialists Recur.  

The initial installment of the project saw 20,000 algorithmically created 1:1 Starship NFTs presented, each priced at $250 and available in either a ‘Captain’ or ‘Admiral’ selection. The ‘Captain Pack’ was made up of one ship, either an Oberth or a Soyuz, with an 11% chance of being a Constitution or Constitution Refit (as seen in the earlier movies). Alternatively, buying a ‘Admiral Pack’ would have ensured a Constitution, but such NFT could only be obtained by holding a $350-priced Recur Pass NFT.

The NFTs come with additional features that go beyond its iconic Sci-Fi aesthetics, such as access to a ‘experiential hub,’ which works as a virtual home for all Star Trek NFT material, as well as a key to aboard further Star Trek NFT experiences, as their rather high costs imply.

Ownership of a ‘Continuum’ NFT may also grant access to such content, as Paramount hinted that properties from Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures may be coming to its platform, while Recur confirmed that an additional 10% of the final mint will be generated for the RECUR Community Treasury.

Despite the mint’s closure owing to demand levels exceeding supply, enthusiasts may still get their hands on a Star Trek Continuum NFT by shopping on secondary markets like OpenSea.
