Non-fungible tokens, which serve as digital certificates that prove ownership and authenticity of virtual items and properties, gained massive momentum in the first quarter of 2021. With the year almost coming to its end, NFT shows no sign of slowing down just yet. The popularity of these blockchain-hosted non-interchangeable units of data cannot only be credited to the domination of digital assets in the economic landscape. Holding merit on their own, NFTs are valued not only because of the revenue stream they can offer to those who know how to wield their power but also because of the opportunity they give artists, celebrities, creators, and companies to make a difference through their projects. Cyber Pugs, one of the most anticipated drops this December, is set to enter the highly competitive scene with a mission in mind: set up teenagers and young investors for financial success and promote the welfare of dogs worldwide.
In the months following the rise of non-fungible tokens, countless collections have been launched and hosted on today’s blockchains. Amid the saturation, Cyber Pugs is confident that it can stand out and capture the hearts of both the uninitiated and the well-versed because of what’s at the core of the project. Made up of 10,000 fur friends, the top-notch venture was brought to life by a team of talented visionaries and go-getters who have gone the extra mile to make every token as individualized as it could get.
Featuring unique styles and looks, Cyber Pugs has thirty to fifty traits: an incredible number that assures all future holders that the pug they own is extremely rare. This collection also boasts a fascinating story that will surely pique the interest of dog lovers. “In the near future, the pup world has gone through several changes. With resources scarce, society is in disarray, and technology is not fulfilling the puppies’ need,” shared the creatives at the helm of the upcoming drop. “All the puppy races have gathered to make the tough call on which is the most useless of them all: the chihuahuas or the pugs. After a vicious battle, it was decided that the pugs would be banished from the pup world.”
Callously banished from the pup world, the characters under the Cyber Pugs project were forced to settle on barren and inhospitable scraps of land. However, years down the road, they managed to evolve into a new technologically-enhanced breed: the Cyberpugs. To be hosted on the Solana blockchain, these intricately drawn figures will cost 2 SOL to mint and make their way to NFT and dog lovers’ homes on December 12.
Currently, the brilliant minds spearheading the project are religiously adhering to a roadmap, which includes the release of a theme song and a comic book, the verification of the Cyber Pugs collection, and merch drops. Now that the launch date is days away, their excitement to see the pugs hog the spotlight is at an all-time high. Additionally, they are looking forward to donating $200,000 to organizations that help dogs upon 100% minting.
