The DJ-producer and singer known as Alison Wonderland is the inspiration for a new fantasy world producing NFT collectibles for Decentraland.
The WonderQuest project, which Decentraland launched last Sunday, enables investors to buy a collectible dragon egg NFT. When hatched, the NFT allows the holder to interact further with the gaming element of the fantasy realm.
To Hatch or Not to Hatch
Ten thousand egg NFTs were available with an initial price tag of 0.0888 ETH although reports suggest these are selling fast. Owners of the eggs can decide whether to hatch the egg and discover the contents or keep it intact in the hope of attracting a higher bid on the secondary market.
Alison Wonderland’s Dragons and Magic
According to Decentraland, WonderQuest “…is an immersive exploration of Alison Wonderland’s virtual world of dragons and black magic.”
The game, centred around the Alison Wonderland NFT art, provides a mixture of quests, gifts and musical soundbites which culminate in a live performance by Alison Wonderland.
Explaining her attraction to the project, Alison said, “People like to collect. I like to collect! And I want to do stuff that people are going to enjoy being a part of – almost like a game. For me this entire universe is like this crazy way to escape real life and I’m a huge fan of fantasy so this is just – the best!”
Alison Wonderland and her foray into NFTs
Sydney-born Alison has enjoyed considerable success in her career and her second album – Awake – debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums in 2018.
However, her foray into the blockchain gaming world has not been all plain sailing.
With sales for Wonderquest having already exceeding $2 million, the attraction for the Alison Wonderland NFT collectibles is undeniable. However, the weight of interest has come at a cost.
Alison took to Twitter herself to advise her legion of fans that the much-anticipated hatching event has been postponed until Tuesday 3rd August. Apparently, in order to allow for more stress-testing on the platform.
