What is a Digital Collectible?
An Digital Collectible is a piece of digital content that is stored on a digital ledger. This content can take the form of digital artwork, photos, video and more. We’re selecting certain, special in-game sneakers and assets to offer as Digital Collectibles in the Aglet shop that you’ll be able to buy, sell and trade in our Marketplace.

You can sell an Aglet Digital Collectible in the Aglet Marketplace (same as a regular sneaker) and you will eventually be able to sell them as an Digital Collectible in other Digital Collectible Marketplaces.

Once you list or sell your Digital Collectible, the in-game sneaker is removed from your shelf.
How do I connect my (existing) wallet?
For our initial drops, we’ll be creating an ImmutableX wallet upon purchase of your first Aglet Digital Collectible. At this stage, because of the connected game play and world of Aglet, you have no need to connect an existing wallet you might have. We are a custodian platform - you simply access your Digital Collectibles through your account, much like you would on Coinbase or Binance. We’ll add features and the ability to integrate any other wallets in the future.
