Satoshi’s Legions is the first major launch of the Satoshiverse and it will present the avatars that will be part of the play-to-earn game! Created by José Delbo and Apollo NFT Studios, The Satoshiverse is a comic universe developed specifically for the blockchain. The universe will include 3D animated next generation avatars called the Legionnaires, amazing art and collectibles, a play-to-earn game, and much more.
November 22, 2021, Florida, USA – Acclaimed Argentinian artist José Delbo and NFT production studio Apollo NFT Studios announced today that minting of the highly anticipated Satoshi’s Legions of the Satoshiverse will begin on November 23, 2021, when presale token holders will be able to claim their Legionnaires. Later, on November 27, 2021, the public sale of the Legionnaires will open to the general public, with early access for those on the whitelist beginning on November 26, 2021.
Satoshi’s Legions are 10,000 next-generation avatar NFTs, called the Legionnaires. The Legionnaires have been meticulously and uniquely crafted, and they push the artistic limits of what is possible with programmatically generated 3D animated NFTs on the blockchain. Each Legionnaire is created natively in 3D to be ready for the metaverses to come. In addition to the hundreds of thousands of combinations available for the Legionnaires themselves, each Legionnaire has a unique 3D background representing 100 cities around the world (a first for NFTs). In addition to all this, each Legionnaire has its own programmatically generated soundtrack. This combination makes Satoshi’s Legions stand out as one of the most artistically complex avatar projects ever released as NFTs.
About a third of the Legionnaires were sold through a presale model, where early collectors were able to purchase Presale Tokens that will give them access to claim a Legionnaire at launch. The presale tokens included a Genesis Token, a Platinum Token, a Gold Token and a Silver Token. Token holders will be able to claim their Legionnaires beginning on November 23, 2021 at 11:00 AM EST, starting with Genesis Token holders, then Platinum, Gold, and finishing with Silver. The claim of the Legionnaires for token holders will be free plus gas. Following the claim period for token holders, on November 26, 2021 at 11:00 AM EST, collectors who have been added to the whitelist will have 24 hours to purchase up to 2 Legionnaires. And finally, on November 27, 2021 at 11:00 AM EST, the public sale will open so that all collectors will be able to purchase their Legionnaires with no limit on the total amount of Legionnaires that can be collected.
By collecting Satoshi’s Legions NFTs, collectors will be able to access multiple perks within The Satoshiverse and the metaverse in general. Legionnaires will have early access to The Satoshiverse P2E game and will be able to use their customized avatar as their character. Collectors will also have the opportunity to receive special airdrops of comic collectibles created in collaboration with some of the top comic artists in the world, the ability to request a fully rigged 3D version of their Legionnaire to be used in other existing blockchain metaverses, exclusive contests, and giveaways with prizes worth thousands of dollars!

About José Delbo
José Delbo is an Argentinian born artist. He published his first work at the age of only 16 in Argentina. He moved to the United States in the 60’s and, inspired by the American cowboy westerns, began work on classics like Billy the Kid, Judge Colt and the Lone Ranger. Then in the 70’s, he brought a host of television shows to comic book form with titles such as The Twilight Zone, The Brady Bunch, Hogan’s Heroes, Buck Rogers, The Monkees and the Mod Squad.
During the 80’s, long before the modern superhero dominated the big screen, he worked for the likes of DC and Marvel Comics and penciled the published adventures of Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, The Transformers and The Thundercats. In the 90’s, when the focus fell on the environment, he drew the first issues of Captain Planet and the Planeteers and Brute Force. He also worked with cartoon classics like Disney’s 101 Dalmatians, the Little Mermaid, the Mighty Ducks, the Yellow Submarine comic book for the Beatles, and the NFL superhero, Superpro, who ran around with Spiderman fighting crime in the big city. Some of his works also include published illustrated comic books featuring some of our cultures’ most iconic women such as Raggedy Ann, Little Lulu, Barbie and Wonder Woman.
In July of 2020, his career took a turn when he released his first piece of digital art on the blockchain in the form of a 43 page original digital comic book called “Death … No Escape.” This was the first original comic NFT on the blockchain. Over the past year, Delbo has continued to release original comic fine art as NFTs collaborating with some of the most well known artists in the space and establishing himself as a pioneer in the comic industry as it adopts NFTs as a new medium of expression. Delbo’s 1 of 1 NFTs have fetched prices as high as 302.5 ETH (Genesis collaboration with Trevor Jones) as Delbo has become one of the most collected artists in the NFT space.
