During Alpha Testing, trading cards will be minted in batches of 100 and kept in a "mint wallet." Any card inside the Mint Wallet is considered to be inactive and out of rotation. Once a card leaves the Mint Wallet, it will be considered to be added into rotation.
Cards will leave the Mint Wallet due to the following events:
Giveaways: At this time, most trading cards will be distributed as a giveaway or event reward.
Over The Counter (OTC) Deals: Users may also inquire for OTC purchases of trading cards from the mint wallet. These will be examined on a case by case basis to avoid disruptions to card supply and natural rarities.
Card Pack Construction: Only when absolutely needed, cards may be released to the shop in the form of "card packs" to add availability to the userbase.
