Courtyard’s Thanksgiving Gift: Mystery Packs with Tokenized Pokémon Cards

Collectible card vaulting platform Courtyard is set to spread some early Thanksgiving joy by giving away hundreds of mystery card packs, each containing tokenized Pokémon cards. This exclusive marketplace collaboration with Decrypt’s GG promises an exciting digital experience for card collectors.

Scheduled for daily drops between November 14 and November 17, Courtyard plans to distribute 100 packs per day, totaling 400 packs. Each digital pack will contain an NFT tied to one graded Pokémon card, spanning vintage base set cards, modern cards, and promo cards. Notably, a 2020 Sword & Shield Shiny Star Charizard and a 1998 Starter Red Green Gift Set Holo Scyther are among the hidden treasures.

Card collectors eagerly anticipating their virtual packs can uncover which Pokémon card they “caught” come November 21. Furthermore, these digital cards hold the unique feature of being redeemable for their physical counterparts, securely stored through vaulting firm Brink’s.

To sweeten the deal, Courtyard has partnered with crypto tech startup Privy and Ethereum NFT collection Chimpers to create this free collection. It’s Courtyard’s way of expressing gratitude with an early Thanksgiving gift to the community.

For those feeling particularly creative, Courtyard has set aside 10 packs for collectors who provide the best responses to its Thanksgiving-themed questions. This adds an element of fun and engagement to the giveaway, encouraging participants to showcase their enthusiasm for the holiday season.

Courtyard’s initiative follows the success of nine previous card drops, which saw 1,700 cards sold out, bringing in around $200,000 worth of graded Pokémon on the blockchain. The tokenization of Pokémon cards as NFTs on the blockchain introduces digital scarcity and a unique identifier, providing collectors with certificates of authenticity that can be redeemed for the physical cards.

In a funding round last year, Courtyard raised $7 million from notable investors, including New Enterprise Associates, Y Combinator, OpenSea Ventures, VaynerFund, and Brink’s. The platform continues to innovate within the intersection of collectibles, blockchain, and NFTs, making waves in the evolving world of digital assets.
