The Worldwide Asset eXchange(TM) made blockchain history recently when the “GPK Goes Exotic” series of digital trading cards sold out in a record 67 minutes. According to the update, the series, a $204,800 sales value, included 20,000 digital packs containing a total of 240,000 individual GPK trading cards. This represents the second sale of WAX blockchain digital cards from the Garbage Pail Kids franchise, with the first sold out in 28 hours. “The ‘GPK Goes Exotic’ series was an instant success among collectors who understand that blockchain-based items offer most of the same characteristics as traditional, physical collectibles,” Evan Vandenberg, director of Business Development for WAX, stated in the news release. “That’s why the transition of physical collectibles, like trading cards, to the blockchain is happening.  Collectibles are a natural fit for technology like blockchain that makes trading easy and counterfeiting nearly impossible.”
