By minting nearly 400k Series Zero Patch NFTs on Polygon at unprecedented scale and speed, Stardust ecosystem sets blistering pace of ~25k NFTs per hour

Stardust a seamless solution for game developers integrating NFTs into their immersive games, and Midnight Society the new game studio launched by Twitch streaming legend Dr Disrespect, today announced that they minted nearly 400,000 of their Claw Series 0 Patch NFTs in under 17 hours, a record-setting achievement made possible by Stardust's industry-leading technology.

"Stardust is built to bring the utility of tokenized assets at scale to the world of gaming in a manner that is both cost-effective and volume ready," said Stardust CEO, Canaan Linder. "Minting 25k NFTs per hour is a staggering pace that not only proves the efficacy and scalability of our technology, but also our team's innovation, market-responsiveness, and ability to support our customer's needs."

The next mint of NFTs for Midnight Society, for which 400k applications have already been submitted, is for a chance to purchase the Founders Access Pass. Committed to building a unique, gamer-first community, only 10,000 people will have the opportunity to mint a Founders Access Pass NFT.

"We have a massive vision for how games are going to be built in the future, bringing players into the fold in ways that have never been done before while keeping core gameplay loops off the blockchain," said Midnight Society Co-Founder and Creative Director, Quinn DelHoyo . "This hybrid approach required every feature that Stardust's solution offers and the flexibility to give our players the choice on if, when, and how they interact with the NFTs in our community. It's this freedom of choice that allows us to get the benefits Web3 has to offer while also leveraging the successful gaming models of the past in unison."

Founders Pass NFTs do not provide any in-game benefits and yet are an exceptionally hot commodity. Among the most notable perks for players is access to early game builds before they are publicly playable, and dev roundtables during which they can weigh in on aspects of the game while it is being developed. In this way, Midnight Society is rewarding their community with a truly exclusive experience. In addition, each NFT will be an individual entity that players own and can sell on open marketplaces.

While many people mistakenly associate NFTs as only a means of monetization, Midnight Society is leveraging them to foster an engaged community whose members contribute their input and opinions, supporting the game's launch and evolution. Midnight Society is proactively taking steps to weed out individuals whose sole intention is to profit from NFT flipping.

"From day one, both teams knew this project was destined for success by virtue of our companies' shared commitment to a community-first approach," said Stardust COO, Atif Khan . "For Stardust, partnering with some of the industry's foremost purists aligns with our mission to ensure that the addition of NFTs into games enhance the player experience while maintaining a truly authentic experience."

The all-new steam deck offers users multiple customisable and flexible options. Equipped with a desktop mode, the steam deck transforms into a PC gaming by connecting to a monitor or TV.

The docking station also acts as a stand for the steam deck, allowing gamers to optimise their playing experience, functionality, and aesthetics by playing while standing on a table.

Priced at $39.99 , the steam deck docking station is an affordable accessory for users, adding to its functional appeal. Furthermore, with plans for the second batch of products to start shipping globally by the end of June, steam deck gamers can expect to get their hands on their own docking station if they haven ' t already.

With a USB-C male and female and HDMI capabilities, the steam deck allows a stunning power input of 100W and output of 4K60Hz and supports high-intensity data transfers of up to 10Gbps. The advanced steam deck accessory further improves the user experience with a USB-A*2 that supports data transmission of up to 480Mbps and a power supply of 5V/1A. For more connectivity options, it also has an RJ45 option to support 100/ 10M networks.

This isn ' t the first JSAUX product that has captured the attention and enthusiasm of steam deck players worldwide. The brand offers an exclusive range of high-tech and comfort accessories to pair with the steam deck and provide an ultimate gaming experience. Going by the motto, " Connect More, Power More," JSAUX is changing the game with its accessories.

Along with serving its core purpose of protecting the steam deck from dust and damage with high-quality TPU and PC material, the built-in stand allows users to place the device on any desk and continue gaming uninterrupted.

But that ' s not all. The protective standing case also boasts a reserve heat dissipation port, or in simple terms, a cool vent, that prevents the device from heating up during intense gameplay. Despite such improved features, the usability and gameplay remain as smooth as ever with the case's texture being incredibly adaptable for the skin and not affecting user control.

About JSAUX : JSAUX's range of steam deck accessories covers every area of the gaming experience ensuring users can keep their steam decks in perfect condition while maximising their gameplay performance. From screen glass and silicon cases to storage bags, 90° adapters, stand bases, and much more, the JSAUX collection has it all.
