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.


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

Pelicouter’s 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. However, the Pelicouter is not designed for human transport.

“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

On the same date, the team will also release a limited edition Trader Joe version of the Pelicouter.

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. In fact, the limited collection immediately sold out 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.
