Parallel is an Ethereum based sci-fi trading card game where the cards themselves are NFTs. Although the first set of Parallel NFTs were launched in 2021, the game itself and other card sets have yet to be released. Parallel NFTs can be bought on Opensea and there is a wide range of card types to browse through from asset cards, art cards, card backs and special edition cards with limited supplies.
Some cards are rarer than others, but just about every card displays great eye-catching artwork that brings the lore of the Parallel universe to life. Card pack events take place occasionally where registered Parallel users can purchase card packs that belong to a specific release period. Potential players will need to collect Parallel cards to build a deck that they can use to compete with other Parallel players in the future.
A beta version of the Parallel trading card game is due to be released before 2023.

Requests to approve or reject the usage of an NFT can be done swiftly on the blockchain.

Artists will be able to propose custom made traits for y00ts NFTs and whoever owns the registry of a trait will be able to sell it on the marketplace. For each sale of a trait, owners will get 5% of all royalties.
