Courtyard has developed NFT cards featuring legendary anime Pokémon launched on the Polygon (MATIC) blockchain.

Enthusiasts quickly bought up all 175 digital collectibles within seconds, causing the floor price to soar in the first few hours of the sale. The two-phase sale of Pokémon cards on the Polygon (MATIC) blockchain was a success. NFT enthusiasts claimed all 175 cards in a matter of seconds.

The organizers accepted fiat money from credit cards and the stablecoin USD Coin (USDC), as explained by digital asset analyst S4mmy.eth. Participants in the token sale actually purchased “Mystery boxes,” which were standardized virtual packs. Each pack allowed the holder to receive one of several pre-disclosed Pokémon-themed cards.

The analyst compared the launch to a lottery, with “Rollbit-style loot boxes, but for existing RWA collectibles.” Purchasers are able to open their packs within 24 hours, while all packs will be automatically opened within 48 hours.

According to S4mmy.eth, this design creates new possibilities for trading physical and digital collectibles. Due to high demand, the minimum price for “closed” packs skyrocketed from $5 to $50. Additionally, the analyst showcased that the 2000 Base Set booster boxes, rare tokenized collectibles from this release, are valued at over $15,000 each.

Polygon (MATIC) co-founder Sandeep Nailwal expressed his excitement over the successful collection inspired by the iconic 2000s anime series: “The NFT ecosystem on Polygon continues to surge ahead!”

Polygon (MATIC) has had a successful few weeks regarding NFT achievements. It has now become the second most active blockchain for NFT trading, overtaking Solana (SOL). Additionally, it has partnered with the largest Korean telecom operator to release NFTs for its marketing program. Flipkart, an online shopping platform, has also released NFTs on Polygon (MATIC) for its customers.
