EOS Nation’s EOS Hot Sauce is also available in video and audio formats shortly after the article is published.

VanCity Outbreak - A bite or a bullet

We’re pleased to announce the release of the Vancity Outbreak NFT series on WAX!

Vancity Outbreak is a graphic novel about a deadly virus that turns victims into ravenous undead cannibals. Whiplash Comics uses real actors and real locations and tells stories through the medium of a camera and creates stunning visuals through composting the photographs. Stephane Bisson, Co-Founder of EOS Nation, and Martin Breuer, Regional Director of Asia for EOS Nation, partnered with Whiplash Comics to release their graphic novel as an NFT series on WAX! 

We believe NFT collectibles are easy to understand and currently the best way to onboard new people into the blockchain world. We’re excited to continue working with non-blockchain artists of all kinds in order to show them the power and possibilities of publishing their art on highly performant EOSIO blockchain networks such as WAX, EOS, and eventually Ultra.

For our first release, we wanted to focus on a fair & fun distribution. We’ve participated in nearly all the NFT releases so far on WAX and we designed something that we think the community will appreciate. Instead of a pack-opening model, we pioneered an airdrop model for our sale. This allows us to avoid a ‘race for mints’ that has caused so many headaches for past releases. Each of our Survival Drops has an equal chance at getting low mints, regardless of when they’re purchased! Once purchased, you can sit back, relax, and watch the Zombies, Cleaner Squad, Kill Shots, and animated Finishers get airdropped into your account on the 31st of October. 

To add a small element of gamification, collectors who are able to collect all 41 common comic book pages by November 15th will earn the exclusive VanCity Outbreak Cover NFT and the right to the PDF version of the full graphic novel. Holders of 5 Survival Drops will also earn the rights to the graphic novel in PDF format.

Survival Drops are on sale until Saturday October 31st at 1600 UTC and only cost 100 WAX each. The sale lasts 24 hours and unsold Survival Drops will be burned. Each Survival Drop guarantees you at least 4 NFTs and the entire collection is being airdropped to holders on October 31st. 

Jump into our VanCity Outbreak Telegram Channel to earn free promotional drops and to trade with other outbreak collectors to complete your sets!

Thank you to our media partners and NFT community builders who graciously invited us to their shows. Give them a like and subscribe, the NFT space on WAX would not be the same without them!

We also want to give a big THANK YOU to the amazingly generous communities of NFT Drops & the DropBox for the support they have shown our project! If you are into free drops, army raids (friendly), fun NFT puzzles and giveaways of all kinds make sure to check them out!

And finally a big shout out to Jona and Fabien from Atomic Hub & Dimitri from bountyblok! None of this would have been possible without the amazing technology they have built, including the very recently announced bountyblok airdrop tool which we’re using for our VanCity Outbreak fun & fair distribution.

We hope you enjoy this unique take on NTF launches and hope to work with other artists in the future on other great content released on EOSIO!

Blockbuster WAX NFT Release Lineup

It’s been an incredible 6 months in the world of WAX NFTs. The growth and participation levels have thoroughly impressed us and we don’t think it’s about to slow down anytime soon! There are tons of collectible series being released in the coming days and weeks on top of many NFT games that are set to launch.

To get caught up on all the great NFT action that you might have missed, we recommend checking out the A Series of Firsts article produced by EOS Go. It recaps all of the biggest brands and launches that we’ve seen so far on WAX and also explains the upcoming DeFi/NFT WAX tokenomics.

For those of you looking forward, here’s a list of all the upcoming WAX NFT series releases. I hope you have your WAXP ready because there are tons of great products coming out!

BREAKING NEWS: KOGs releases brand new Litepaper detailing their tokenomics, liquidity mining, cross-chain DeFi liquidity pools, RFOX incentives, and a lot more exciting information! KOGs stands for “Keys to Other Games” and the first such game to be unlocked by KOGs will be available for public beta in December!  


It’s fair to say that the WAX network is currently the epicenter for EOSIO-based NFTs, but there are several projects also making good use of NFTs on the EOS Mainnet.

The Mythical Games team announced the public beta for the long awaited Blankos Block Party for November 17th, and the Blankos Founder’s Pack Sale is already live.

All game items are based on the dGoods NFT standard and each Founder’s Pack comes with:

  • A limited Edition Blanko along with some accessories
  • Guaranteed Priority Access to Private Beta
  • Blanko Bucks matching the USD value of the pack
  • Founder Status in-game and founder role on the Blankos Discord server

In the most recent #BuiltOnEOSIO series we had the chance to learn more about  Mythical Games Co-founder and SVP of Business Development Rudy Koch’s motivation for building a blockchain-based player owned economy. 

Given his profound track record in gaming, we can’t be more excited to see what he and his team came up with to bring gaming to the next level, while also introducing a whole new group of people to the benefits of decentralized ownership.

“We got really excited about ways we could leverage blockchain to challenge the way game economies were being designed,” explains Koch. “We saw a natural fit with what blockchain was introducing and with where the games industry was going.”

The EOSVC funded company Mythical Games has been working on this AAA game for over 18 months now and recently started cooperating with, using the newly introduced BAAS offerings.

The EOS community has been waiting patiently for this to come out, not only to have fun while playing, but also for the game to showcase the potential of EOSIO, and last but not least to find out how it will be connected to the EOS Mainnet.

Luckily the wait will be over soon.

Boid Taps Into Tesla-Powered NFT Energy

It’s amazing to see the kind of creativity and diversity that we’re seeing with NFTs recently. There is tons of innovation going on and this week Boid brought us yet another interesting twist on NFTs.

For those who may not remember, Boid is a platform that allows you to contribute your idle computing power towards scientific research projects that impact areas such as climate change, Alzheimers, COVID-19 and more!

On top of the token rewards and team competitions already present as incentives for donating your computer power, Boid is introducing additional gamified elements through the introduction of their Scientist Series including the first of the series, the mighty Tesla NFTs!

In order to earn these NFTs, and the increased Boid mining power that comes along with them, users are encouraged to bid for them using a variety of EOS tokens they might be holding! Each token has a minimum donation amount that increases slightly after each donation and in the end everyone gets to add the Tesla NFT to their collection! And of course, the top bidders earn the rights to the lowest mint numbers!

Make sure to read their full article for more details about this great promotion!

Upland's Spark

Another project that’s all about NFTs on EOS is Upland, a property trading game that continuously evolves, determined to become the first full blown metaverse on EOS with its own economy. In this regard they just introduced Spark, a resource needed for doing construction and therefore adding value to properties.

The Spark token is based on the EOS Mainnet and is not spent but staked in order to get construction jobs done within the metaverse. Such a staking mechanism opens up a lot of opportunities, as Spark holders could also stake the building power to other players in order to generate passive income. The team has already hinted that such a model would most likely be offered on a  “Spark Exchange.”

When it comes to the distribution of Spark we got some good news: the token will be airdropped to all the citizens of Upland!

EOS Nation is a top Block Producer on the EOS public network. We earn inflation rewards based on the percentage of tokens staked towards us. Those rewards are reinvested into EOSIO community, tools, and infrastructure. Help grow the ecosystem by staking your vote to eosnationftw for BP or proxying to proxy4nation

Remember, we never accept compensation in exchange for featuring projects in the EOS Hot Sauce. That means if a project is included in the EOS Hot Sauce it’s because we believe that project brings value to the EOSIO ecosystem and we want our community to know about it!

Are you building an interesting project on EOSIO? We want to hear from you! Reach out to us on social media or email

Heidi Taillefert presents: Vintage Valentines

The Vintage Valentine series was conceived to mimic turn of the century valentine’s day cards, reflecting an era when society pretended to hide the more salacious habits of so many people during that time. On top of the physical pieces, this collection also features digital copies, published as Vintage Valentine Card NFTs on the carbon-neutral WAX blockchain.
