Azuki Adds Racing Jacket to Collector Profiles
In celebration of the partnership with Red Bull Racing, Azuki added a racing jacket to its collector profile this morning, according to a tweet from the project.
The collector profile allows users to download and add elements to their Azuki PFP, as well as create a showcase, earn badges, and more.
The racing jacket download will add a blue and red jacket in the style of the traditional racing jackets, which were teased yesterday by Red Bull Racing, featuring the Bybit and Azuki logos.
The partnership announcement reverberated slowly at first yesterday but eventually led to a notable change in volume day over day for the Azuki collection, increasing secondary volume on OpenSea by 90 percent, while the floor price increased nearly four percent to 9.98 ETH. Not captured in that volume was the movement of multiple Spirit Azukis, one of which traded on X2Y2 for 120 ETH late last night.
In addition to the racing jacket, the collaboration with Bybit is also introducing a free NFT claim featuring Azuki character, Lei. Users who wish to claim one of the free Tezos NFTs will need to register for an account on Bybit and then preregister for the NFT claim on the upcoming project page. A snapshot will be taken at 3:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, Nov. 19 marking the eligible accounts for the claim, but the 7,700 free NFTs will be released on a first-come, first-served basis starting on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 4:00 a.m. ET.
More of the Lei character and the F1 partnership is expected to unfold throughout the 2023 racing season.
This is a developing story and will be added to by Lucky Trader as more details emerge.
