Changing Vegas Using New #NFTCollection To Fund Asteroid Arena!
While Celebrating Las Vegas #NFT Artists & Building A Video Game Culture in Vegas
Led by CEO & Creative Director Dave Thompson, Changing Vegas LLC is an indie game development + film studio in Las Vegas. In 2022, the startup is collaborating with talented Las Vegas digital creatives to create Asteroid Arena! - a 4-player, free-to-play CCG (collectible card game). In development now, Asteroid Arena! is The Official ESport of Las Vegas.
The Company is using their Asteroid Arena! NFT Collection to help fund the video game. This is a new way to raise funds - aka “Crowdfunding in the Blockchain Age.” Each NFT drop will feature game art from one of the eight alien factions in Asteroid Arena! and is being created by a different Las Vegas artist.

Asteroid Arena! is currently a board game. Proceeds from the NFT drops will go toward developing a game demo and commissioning additional artwork.
The first Asteroid Arena! #NFTdrop features The GLOOPs, slimy, mischievous creatures who combine into monsters and devour their opponents. The GLOOPs are created by popular Las Vegas tattoo artist Jay O’Leary, better known as “Toofless Jay”.
Toofless Jay is the first interview in the new “Artists Behind the Aliens” video series (below).
GLOOP NFT Founders Packs cost 35 WAM (approx. $10) and include 4 digital trading cards. Gamers, nerds, crypto enthusiasts, Millennials, and others will need a WAX wallet before they head to Nefty Blocks to buy GLOOP Founders Packs: https://neftyblocks.com/c/arenaartwork
How It Works
People can collect the Baby GLOOP cards and blend them into stronger GLOOPs, including the Legendary GLOOP King. Everyone holding the blended GLOOP NFTs when the video game launches, will receive the corresponding in-game premium cosmetics. In addition to helping fund Asteroid Arena!, when people purchase Packs, they’re also celebrating awesome Las Vegas artists who are making the transition into #blockchain art. The GLOOP Founders Packs are limited edition. Only 5,000 are available.
