First and foremost, Parallel is a “trading card game” (TCG) in early development with some of the most top notch art and lore I have ever seen. They have taken the 11th spot on Opensea’s ranking of projects with the highest all time volume. NOW LET'S BEGIN.
It was Late February.
My brother @Goldy_TGG, a huge seeker of NFT alpha, told me about Parallel and to check out their first ever meeting on Clubhouse. There were rumors surfacing on the interwebs of a sci- fi trading card game that was bursting into the NFT space. I had to check this out for myself, so I borrowed an iPad and got in.
Two of the founders, Mr. Gone & Kalos, were hosting and I was listening. There were a total of 10 people in that clubhouse, but they treated all ten like family. The Parallel team answered questions, talked backstory and their plans for what's ahead. I raised my hand and asked: “So what is Parallel?”
They said “5 Parallels (aka former humans) evolved into something more... now they fight for 'The PRIMING' back on earth," adding: “We want to make a dynamic PlayToEarn TCG, and NFTs will allow us to do some cool things.”
I was all in from that point on.
On March 25th, their presale went live and 203 people got involved.
It was called the PS15 sale (PRESALE 15)
15 “total” cards from all the 5 Parallels (plus some art cards and collectible card backs).
I chose the best Parallel faction, aka the Marcolians—I'm biased af—(The Mars Militant Elite) and scooped up the 2 legendaries for .5 ETH a pop.
Which cards you ask?
- Neutron Bomb
- Orbital Strike
These are worth a whopping 60 ETH sold together today. No one knew what this would do, but we saw the art and we read the lore. I can't speak for everyone, but I knew I landed on the modern day version of Magic the Gathering or Pokemon. I fucking knew it.
