Those tracking the industry development definitely know 2020 was a real boom for the decentralized finance sector. However, in 2021, the hype switched to the NFT sector. Since the first quarter of this year, the popularity of NFT has grown exponentially. Between January and March 2021, the capitalization of the NFT market grew almost 18 times and reached $432 million at the end of the first quarter. The trading volume increased as well from $30.1 million to $226 million. According to preliminary data, as of the summer of 2021, investors spent more than $2 billion purchasing NFT collectibles.
Amidst the hype, the world media also add fuel to the fire: more and more celebrities release NFTs almost every day. For example, in March this year, the famous auction house Christie sold Beeple artworks for $70 million. Thus, the first quarter was really explosive, the second was rather stable, and the third and fourth promise to be even more astonishing.

The Step Hero ecosystem is a kind of symbiosis of NFT and DeFi games allowing users to make a profit and receive fun simultaneously. Step Hero implies:

Step Hero is the first NFT fantasy RPG running on Polygon (formerly Matic Network) and Binance Smart Chain. The plot of the game Step Hero lies at the heart of the post-apocalyptic war between the army of Shadows led by Lucifer – the Demon Lord and the heroes led by the archangel Gabriel. Players play the roles of heroes. Their missions are to fight villains in battles while taking away their energy, collecting in-game items, earning (STEP coins), and improving their heroes.
Step Hero players can generate income in several ways:
- They can earn prizes by winning Player vs. Player (PvP) battles.
- They can sell in-game objects such as healing potions, power potions, and weapons and earn money.
- They can upgrade their characters and exchange them later. The more unique and powerful their characters, the bigger profit they bring.
Hero NFT Marketplace
Hero NFTs Marketplace (HNM) is a cross-chain platform where users can easily create and share NFTs products. To differ from other NFT markets, the platform focuses on ensuring the originality of NFT assets. Creators who have completed the KYC process receive a “confirmed profile” status.
Besides, Hero NFTs Marketplace integrates its data with other social networks to create creators’ digital identifying data connected with their wallet address. This identification helps detect plagiarized NFTs. In addition, each user can report copyright infringement and receive rewards as soon as HNM confirms their suspicion. This mechanism relies on community support to create a reliable marketplace.
HERO collectibles are unique, authentic, and rare. Hero collectibles owners can decide to either bring them into their collection or sell them on the market. The market price of cards depends on the level of their rarity. Owners also may integrate them into artwork and other blockchain-related products to add value.
Step Hero is created using the most sophisticated graphic design of world-class collectibles and a comprehensive NFT ecosystem. In addition, the NFT marketplace is has superior features that allow users to buy and sell NFTs, list other NFTs, create their own NFTs, even launch NFT auctions and join affiliate programs with attractive commission rates for both promoters and judges. Besides, the project features the ultimate RPG game that gets interesting game rules ranging from basic to advanced levels.
