Enter, Emergents

Welcome to this week’s issue of The Baking Sheet!
As we head into the last months of Summer, we are going to focus on the highly-anticipated launch of the Emergents Trading Card game, the public beta is set to drop August 18th – let’s dive in
Emergents on the horizon
“If you build it, they will come.”
The road to digitizing a beloved real-world hobby (and its passionate adherents) is a long and winding one. If executed effectively, however, the results can be astonishingly positive for everyone involved.
Since bursting onto the scene way back in 1993 with the emergence of Magic: The Gathering as a lucrative global pop-culture phenomenon, the trading card game industry has managed to grow itself a massive (and passionate) global community. Games like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Dragonball have since joined Magic: The Gathering atop the TCG charts. Massive tournaments have dolled out millions of dollars in prizes to the world’s top TCG players over the past decade or so, and secondary markets for rare/useful cards are absolutely booming.
Today, the global trading card game (TCG) market is estimated to be worth almost $3.5 billion. Spurred on by a global pandemic that saw many increasingly isolated folks looking for new ways to stay entertained, a TCG renaissance of sorts is now in full swing, and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
The rise to prominence of blockchain technology and the NFT as important new players in the larger global collectibles landscape, however, has added an exciting new wrinkle to the TCG mix. Some of the biggest names in the sports collectibles world have already made massive strides into the NFT arena — nowhere more so than right here in the Tezos ecosystem. It appears, the trading card game industry is ready to follow suit.
Enter: the Emergents trading card game. This highly-anticipated Tezos-powered offering developed by some of the most respected names in the TCG industry has managed to generate an enormous amount of buzz over the past few months. While some may not be overly familiar with this exciting Tezos NFT-enabled game and the InterPop-backed comic book universe its characters inhabit just yet, there’s plenty of reason to believe that they will be soon.
As one of the first TCG offering exclusively built on Tezos technology — which officially launched last year with its first promo card dropping in September 2021 — the reasons to get excited about what the Emergents TCG could mean for the ongoing evolution of the Tezos ecosystem are many. Here are just a few worth thinking about ahead of Emergents TCG’s impending public Beta launch and promo-card-packed Super Booster drop on August 18th, 2022…

In this conversation, we speak to three artists who have long explored the intersection between physical and digital realms through augmented reality, crypto poetry or human computer interaction (HCI). The discussion covers how blockchain and NFTs have influenced their art, what challenges still stand in their way, and how this new technology will make a lasting impact on the art world, beyond this first wave.
