WHAT ARE CRYPTOYS?
Cryptoys are interactive digital toys, wrapped in surprise unboxing experiences, and distributed on the Flow blockchain. Fun, playful, and interactive, Cryptoys blend toys, collectibles, and gaming to unlock a whole new universe of possibilities. Each toy has a limited supply, so collect them while supplies last.
Your Cryptoys are the key to various apps and gaming experiences. Each Cryptoy character is composed of different characteristics that make them truly unique: Series, Tier, Rarity, Edition, Mint, Skin, and Stat-O-Meter Level.
Inspired by his daughter’s obsession with collecting physical surprise pack toys, CEO Will Weinraub co-founded OnChain Studios with CTO Emilio Cueto, CXO Alfonso Martinez, CCO Freddy Oropeza, and COO Jhonathan Torres. Gaming is leaning towards more “social play” than ever, and Cryptoys believes that the blockchain will help enable this.
A company on a mission to empower, educate, and entertain the next-generation of collectors around the world.
