5HeadGames Marketplace Updates

Marketplace Supports Additional Blockchains

Our marketplace is expanding! Originally supporting Polygon, it now embraces Findora and Ethereum-held NFTs. We’re on a mission to support more blockchains, focusing on sustainability with a “Proof-of-Stake” approach.

Secure Peer-to-Peer Card Rentals (expanded)

Renting cards is made secure and seamless through the 5HeadGames marketplace. List or browse rentable cards, connect with your wallet, and dive into peer-to-peer rentals.

Here’s how it works:

Owners of Enders Gate virtual collectible trading cards can list their collectibles for a desired amount in accepted currencies, including Matic and WFRA. When another user finds and accepts the listing, they have the option to set a specific rental period (with a minimum of 24 hours).

The magic happens through our rental smart contract: it holds the original collectible that the owner agreed to rent out and provides the renter with a wrapped version of the card. Upon completion of the rental contract, the wrapped collectible is automatically burned, and the original is released back to its owner, available in their inventory to be reclaimed.

This rental system is designed with your convenience and security in mind, offering a seamless and trustworthy way to explore the world of Enders Gate.

5HeadGames Partnerships

5HeadGames X ImmutableX

We’re making moves on the ImmutableX blockchain via the new Polygon zkevm. Tests are underway as we prepare for a seamless transition to mainnet. Keep an eye out for updates from ImmutableX and Polygon.
