F1® Delta Time announces “Australia Edition 2020” Charity Auction

Animoca Brands announces a non-profit charity event to raise funds for Australia’s bushfire recovery efforts in the form of an auction of a unique non-fungible token (NFT) in F1® Delta Time: the one-of-a-kind “Australia Edition 2020” race car.

The auction starts on 12 March 2020 at 3 am (GMT) and runs until 22 March 2020 at 3 am (GMT) at www.F1DeltaTime.com. All wrapped ether earned from the auction will be sent to Finder and HiveEx who will then convert it to Australian dollars.

100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to a number of organisations who are aiding relief and recovery efforts, and will be split evenly between the NSW Rural Fire Service Association, WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.), and Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

The catastrophic bushfires that began in June 2019 were among the worst ever seen in Australia. The fires have destroyed millions of hectares of land, over 3,000 homes and nearly 6,000 buildings, and killed at least 57,000 livestock and 34 people across Australia. It is estimated that more than one billion animals perished from bushfires and drought, including as many as 10,000 koalas (a third of New South Wales’ total koala population), making them a potentially endangered species.

While the New South Wales Rural Fire Service recently reported that there are no longer active bush or grass fires in the hardest-hit state of New South Wales, the wildfires have already brought great devastation to the country.

All NFTs in F1® Delta Time, will forever be owned by their owners regardless of any decisions taken by the game, Formula 1®, or Animoca Brands.

​Players are free to do anything they want with their NFTs: they can sell them on a marketplace for real money, trade them, or use them to play F1® Delta Time. Since NFTs exist independently across blockchain, players can even use their F1® NFTs in other blockchain games (third party support required).

Rare digital collectibles can be extremely valuable, as proven by previous F1® Delta Time NFT auctions and crate sale.

Staking NFTs to generate in-game currency

In F1® Delta Time, cars are NFTs and will have the ability to generate REV through “staking”, with rarer cars generating higher amounts of REV. REV is an ERC-20 token and the primary in-game currency in F1® Delta Time.

​When you choose to stake your car, you temporarily transfer ownership to F1® Delta Time and lose the ability to use, sell or trade that car, but you will earn REV based on the period of time that your car is staked.
