AAA space metaverse game Imperium Empires will launch its “Pelicouter” Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) on September 1, 2022. In collaboration with decentralized trading platform Trader Joe, the “intergalactic mining freighter” will be minting on Avalanche blockchain’s rising NFT marketplace, Joepegs.

Additionally, in conjunction with the launch, the team will select five lucky winners who will receive $20 worth of Imperium Empires token, $IME and $20 worth of $JOE, the native token of Trader Joe.


First introduced in early June, the Pelicouter is an intergalactic vessel intended for carrying and delivering cargos. The spacecraft possesses a massive hexagon-shaped, platinum-coated body, fitted with ventilation units, mining tools, and a support module.

Although a Pelicouter is not a good fit for human transport, its cargo-carrying section can provide a lot of space for some of the heaviest shipments in Imperium. They also come equipped with high-velocity nitro boosters to speed up deliveries when the trip is becoming a little too dragging due to the heavy load.

“We’re thrilled to announce our partnership and the launch of PELICOUTER on Sept 1. Fully playable in APOLLO web game, utilize this intergalactic mining freighter to carry the most resources,” the Joepegs team announced

A limited edition Trader Joe version of the Pelicouter will also be released on the same date.

As of August 26, Joepegs is the biggest NFT marketplace on Avalanche in terms of volume. The digital asset hub holds 47% of the total NFT market share in the AVAX ecosystem (per NFTgators).

Avalaunch Mint

On August 26, Imperium Empires released its Tripod-X spaceship NFT on Avalaunch Mint. The partnership with decentralized fundraising platform Avalaunch was a hit as the limited collection was sold out immediately the following day.

“AND IT’S GONE! #SOLDOUT. Congratulations to all new TriPod-X owners! Did we mention a SPECIAL competition is headed your way as well? Bet you didn’t see that one coming. Thank you again to our partner Avalaunch!” the team posted on Twitter.
