PewDiePie To Give Away Crypto Valuables: Here’s How

YouTube’s most popular independent creator Felix Kjellberg, also known as PewDiePie, is teaming up with a blockchain-based augmented reality (AR) game that gives out crypto assets.

In a new video, PewDiePie promotes Wallem, which is a Pokemon-style game that allows users to collect cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) and other tokens including the app’s native asset Pteria (PTE).

According to PewDiePie, gamers can join events to collect crypto assets that are scattered around their area.

“You can walk around outside. Get tokens. Based on where you live, they will spawn around you nearby.”

Pteria has also issued six non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that represent PewDiePie’s skin on Wallem. Pteria announced that the skin is available on decentralized and community-owned NFT marketplace Rarible. According to the Pteria team, owning the NFTs comes with two income streams.

“100% in PTERIA from each sale of the PewDiePie skin in Wallem; 10% of all the crypto that PewDiePie skins collect within the crypto events in Wallem.”

Pteria uses a smart contract that automatically sends the profits to NFT owners at a certain timeframe based on a minimum amount of crypto assets earned.

NFTs are special crypto assets that prove the ownership of a particular digital asset, which in this case is a PewDiePie skin.

They are different from other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum as NFTs are not interchangeable and contain the identifying information of a particular asset stored in the blockchain.
