What is Algoworld ?
Algoworld is a series of 1500 digital trading cards representing the 193 countries around the globe. Each country has between 3 and 29 cards issued based on its population density. The project takes advantage of Algorand’s low fees and fast transactions to encourage trades between card owners.
Every card is an NFT on the Algorand blockchain, which is a distinct ASA (Algorand Standard Asset) of 1 unit. It is easy to add these assets to any Algorand wallet and keep it, trade it or sell it. Everybody has a special connection with one or several countries. Thus, AlgoWorld is a fun way to introduce NFTs and discover how they work on Algorand.
