Hot Wheels is launching an NFT collection

Mattel is entering the NFT scene, after revealing a Hot Wheels NFT series called Hot Wheels NFT Garage.

In a partnership with The Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX), a carbon-neutral NFT blockchain, Mattel is launching limited, unique, and sustainable NFTs with their latest Garage of Legends series. In the first series, there will be a total of 40 different Hot Wheels NFT designs, along with four levels of rarity, Base, Rare, Premium, and the rarest, NFTH.

Hot Wheels NFT Garage Series 1 will debut on November 16th, with prices starting at $15 and over 5,000 rarities. If you get a Rare and Premium card, they can be redeemed for physical, special-edition Hot Wheels die-casts, including the Twin Mill™, Rodger Dodger™, Mach Speeder™, SS Camaro and the Bone Shaker™, some of the rarest Hot Wheels.

“Hot Wheels is excited to offer limited, unique and sustainable NFTs with our latest Garage of Legends series. Collectors will have a chance to obtain exclusive physical die-casts vehicles and importantly, the NFTs will be minted on the sustainable WAX blockchain,” said Andrew Chan, Head of Digital Gaming at Mattel. “The Hot Wheels design team chose 40 new designs for fans to continue to build their collections of Hot Wheels digital NFT artwork and physical die-cast vehicles!”

Ahead of its release next month, anyone interested in the series can create a WAX Cloud Wallet by heading over to WAX’s site

Uber partners with Hertz to rent up to 50,00 Tesla’s to drivers

Uber is planning to roll out up to 50,000 Tesla vehicles as part of its push for an all-electric fleet.

According to an announcement from Hertz, Teslas will be available for Uber drivers to rent in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Washington, DC, from November 1st, before eventually being available nationwide.

Uber drivers will be able to rent a Tesla Model 3 through Hertz at a rate of $334 a week, including maintenance and insurance, and as time goes on, the weekly rate will fall to $299 or lower.

The news comes only a few days after Hertz announced on Monday that it had ordered 100,000 Tesla vehicles, the largest single order the company has ever received, which caused Tesla’s stock price to skyrocket.

Hustle Special

Don’t give up on your dreams

Life isn’t easy, and when things seem to get too hard, it’s easy to give up on your dreams. Here’s why you shouldn’t.

One of the biggest reasons people give up on their dreams and settle for something less is failure. When things start to go wrong, instead of looking at it as a reason to quit, look at it as an opportunity to learn, grow, and try again.

Nothing compares to the feeling when you finally succeed and realize you are at a point in your life you always dreamed of. If you are only getting started working towards whatever it may be, create a plan to get there, and start turning it into a reality.

A great example of someone who never gave up on their dreams is Squid game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk. The show was originally written in 2009 by Hwang Dong-hyuk, and for over ten years, it was rejected by multiple studios and investors as the story was deemed too gruesome. That didn’t stop him as fast forward to the present, Squid Games debuted on Netflix and became the #1 show in most countries around the world.

If you’re more familiar with sport, take Michael Jordan for example. At 15, he didn’t get a spot on his high school’s basketball team, and instead of giving up, he went on to be one of the greatest players of all time.
