LAND Thumbnails

A picture is worth a thousand words. We’ve added thumbnails on LAND Map for each LAND NFT. This allows for easy recognition and more interest by visitors.

Fixed Reflection Time

Reflection time for the following has been reduced to a minimum.

  • Owned Tab after Creating NFTs.

If you like card games and want to play an action-packed, NFT-based card game with popular IPs, NFTDuel is the game for you. We’re constantly updating.

The following updates will soon be added to the game.


Once the attack flow starts, the timer will stop and will remain stopped until the flow is completed.
