  4. Unlocking Tradable Assets through ERC1155 SFTs: In the realm of unlocking the NFT and SFT potential, Whalepass introduces a game-changing feature.

This advancement not only enhances the gaming experience but also nurtures a vibrant player-driven economy.

This has huge potential to a previously released title such as X Hero Siege. Giving it another chance to bring old and new players back to the game! Moreover, since it's exponentially harder to get the most rare reward, players will need to spend a lot more time in game to complete the entire battlepass.
