The esports team 100 Thieves join the budding craze of NFTs and release the NFT. 100 Thieves follows a very unusual strategy. Among other things, NFT is completely free.
100 Thieves NFT – A true collector’s item
100 Thieves is an esports organization that currently provides teams in Valorant, Fortnite, League of Legends and Call of Duty games. Former Call of Duty player Nadeshot founded the organization in 2016.
The team that participated in League of Legends won the LCS Championship title on August 29, 2021, thus qualifying for the World Cup, where the team was eliminated, with significantly less success, in the group stage.

To celebrate success at LCS, founder Nadeshot has created something very special. All the players and coaches who led the team to success were equipped with the so-called diamond necklace.
A blue diamond in the center shape of the necklace gives it its name. It should also be a gift for loyal fans. With NFTs now on everyone’s lips, the decision to present the gift as an NFT may not have been difficult.
In this case, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Viewers can easily access digital collectibles from anywhere in the world. NFT shows the diamond nodes above the dashboard in 3D.
While the front of the plate is for decoration only, the back shows the details of the gift.

So far the element of this collector is not exceptional. If you take a closer look at the details of the NFT, you will notice significant differences in the well-known campaigns. NFT has always been a big business. Some NFT prices are even breaking records in the art industry.
Accordingly, many artists and investors are trying their luck in digital art and want to make a lot of money. On the other hand, they provide NFTs with sometimes high mintage rates, and on the other hand, they charge the developer a fee for resale.
Disney also sold NFTs frequently. The starting price comes up to three-digit amounts.
On the other hand, 100 Thieves follows a completely different strategy. There is no advertising campaign. NFT is not even named as such. No hot phrases are used in the scene that can greatly increase attention.

Instead, the organization had other ideas. Viewers should receive the gift completely free of charge and the blockchain should not require a lot of energy.
To do this, 100 Thieves uses the Polygon blockchain, which is a layer 2 solution for Ethereum. This is also not mentioned in the tweet and only becomes clear when visiting the website. It is currently still possible to capture the NFT there without any issues.

Meanwhile, Nadeshot announced that there are already over 300,000 NFT owners. More recent information can be found at the OpenSea Market. There are currently over 385,000 owners on the list.
How do you get 100 Thieves NFT?
The Championship Series has been delivered since February 2nd and is available until February 5th. The chance only ends with the next game for 100 Thieves in LCS.
Since minting is free, each user can theoretically claim an unlimited number of NFTs. In the meantime, OpenSea is inundated with bogus offers. Instead of buying an NFT in the traditional way, users download the NFT and then offer it for sale. False shows can be recognized by the fact that they are not part of the official group.
For an official issue, all you have to do is go to the 100 Thieves website and connect a web wallet there. In a few moments, the NFT will then be mined.
Only on the site 100 thieves explain that this is NFT. Elsewhere, this information was apparently intentionally hidden. There is no developer fee. 100 thieves do not advise selling NFT. He wasn’t supposed to do that.
NFT offerings on OpenSea currently start at $2.
