Introducing My Pixel Club
In this article we will explain what My Pixel Club is, what we have achieved so far, and where we are going
Over the course of 2021, JPEGs rose from a state of niche insignificance to the pinnacle of a cultural zeitgeist, the wave of which saw fortunes made and lost, and displayed the ways in which the digitalisation of our lives can be reflected culturally. Our online personas and avatars are capturing evermore space in the digital realm, and with each day that passes it seems as though are physical lives are gradually becoming a less dominant portion of the human experience. Universal lockdowns certainly forced many people into such a recognition, and there is no industry that benefitted more from the dematerialisation of the human experience than the NFT and blockchain gaming industries.
The chart below, from DappRadar, demonstrates how OpenSea’s user base exploded during this time, as they rose from having just 300 active users at the start of 2021 to tens of thousands today.
Although the growth has been sporadic and volatile, the world has undergone a fundamental shift in which NFTs are now largely understood. The younger and more tech savvy generations have a very firm grasp on they operate and why they are important, and there is no sign that this trend is reversing any time soon. NFT collections have grown to become the default avatars for many online personae, and the digital realms within which people now spend a lot of their time have the new playground/office/social square. In the Web3 space, recognition of a Bored Ape is now nearly ubiquitous, and this level of exclusivity carries with it an enhanced social status.
The digitalisation of experiences, goods, and services ought to be a disruptive force that steadily drives marginal costs of consumption lower and lower, freeing up more capital in society to experiment with more exclusive and scarce assets. It means that people have more time spend on rest and relaxation, and more capital to spend on entertainment. As more and more of the social experience drifts into the digital realm, so too does the importance of community and scarcity in exclusivity — the competition amongst such Web3 projects will become evermore fierce as they compete to
What is My Pixel Club?
My Pixel Club is not only an NFT community, but also a blockchain gaming community, in which our NFTs serve not only as avatars for PFPs, but also have utility in gameplay.
At My Pixel Club, the importance of the intersections between NFTs and avatars, NFTs with gaming, gaming with further human experiences, and how to tie this all together, are concepts that are well-understood. We already have a demo of our game almost ready for release within the next few weeks, and progress is consistent.
Since inception, we have already built our community to several thousand members across Discord and Twitter, and through our various collaborations and partnerships we have already secured a lot of utility for our members, including discounted white list opportunities for other NFT collections that are launching alongside, and independently, from ours.
We aim to be the friendliest community in the entirety of the cryptocurrency space. To do this, we believe that it is important to foster a high degree of trust with our community (our team members are all doxxed, and can be contacted at any time via our Discord), and to create an ecosystem that has a plethora of utility. As such, MPC is not just a P2E game, nor just a PVP game, nor just an NFT collection for NFTs; MPC is a fun and flexible community that encourages as much participation as possible. As such, we are to be decentralising the project further down the line once our products have launched, and will be converting MPC into a DAO.

Our Genesis collection will consist of 4,000 unique Akitas, which will function as the foundation of our community. Mint price and date is yet TBA, so make sure you subscribe to this publication to ensure that you stay informed :)
