What are Thug Cats?

Thug Cats is a collection of unique generative NFTs on the Solana blockchain. Our design is simplistic, minimal, 8-bit pixel art on a 24x24 canvas. Our vision is to build a strong community that will have owner-exclusive advantages, a community wallet, and a future DAO with a voting system to decide the allocation of the community funds. 

Why Thug Cats?

We aim to provide elegant, aesthetically pleasing pixel art while also providing long-term value for holders. 

1. Fine Art: Each Thug Cat is carefully handcrafted using a minimalistic yet elegant design. 

2. Low Supply: Only 3,333 Thug Cats will be available for mint. This ensures quality while also establishing a small loving community. 

3. Low mint price: Mint price is a low cost of 0.33 SOL. This provides accessibility and opportunity for all. 

4. Charitable donations: 5% of mint proceeds will be given directly to charity. Along with this, a portion of aftermarket sale royalties will go to a "Charity Wallet", where it is then donated to different Charities. 

5. Community oriented: We believe the community members are the most important aspect of any project.  This is why we aim to build a small, tight-knit community in which holders are always rewarded. This will be done with the creation of the MEOW DAO. A community run DAO with a voting system in which community members will decide the use of the community funds.  

6. Deflationary: A portion of aftermarket sales royalties are added to the "Cayote Wallet". The cayote goes hunting for Thug Cats listed at floor price. The funds in the wallet are used to buy the cheapest listed Thug Cats listed on secondary marketplaces (also know as "sweeping the floor"). These Cats are then burned, resulting in a deflationary system that reduces the total supply. This rewards holders by raising the floor price while simultaneously placing a upward price buy pressure.

Roadmap

We aim to provide aesthetically pleasing pixel art along with long-term value for our community:  

FRIDAY DECEMBER 10TH 2021 LAUNCH

Launch the collection for public mint & get listed on secondary marketplaces. 

DONATION

We believe in giving back. Upon selling out, we will donate 5% of our mint proceeds to a charitable organization. 1% of secondary sale royalties will also be allocated to a "Charity Wallet". This will then be distributed to charitable organizations.

DISTRIBUTION
2.5% of secondary marketplace sales royalties will be sent to the "Cayote Wallet". This is a deflationary system that will use the funds that accumulate in the wallet to buy the lowest priced Thug Cats on Secondary Marketplaces ("sweep the floor") and then burn them. This rewards convicted holders by raising the floor price while reducing the total supply. It also creates an upward price buy pressure. 
COMMUNITY

Introduce The MEOW DAO. 2.5% of secondary sales royalties go to the "Community DAO wallet". We will introduce a DAO and voting system to allow for holders to vote on what the funds will be used for. If everyone votes on cash back for example, it will be distributed equally among the holders. 

ART

Our center of attention is the art and community. We plan to source custom Thug Cat merch; hoodies, chains, etc. to make available for holders. There may also be future art in which holders will have exclusive advantages such as airdrops and more.

What is an NFT?

Non-Fungible Tokens are unique, easily verifiable digital assets that can represent items such as GIFs, images, videos, music albums, and more. Anything that exists online can be purchased as an NFT, theoretically.

NFTs are different from cryptocurrencies because they’re not interchangeable. Think of Pokémon cards: You can trade them, but a Gastly is not the same as a holographic Charizard. But a bitcoin is indistinguishable from another bitcoin.

One reason to buy an NFT is for its emotional value, which isn’t so different from physical objects...unless you’re a total utilitarian. No one buys lip gloss because they need it. They buy it for the way it makes them feel. The same can be true for a GIF, image, video, or other digital asset.

The other reason is because you think it’s valuable...and will only increase in value. And yes, you can make money off of an NFT by buying and reselling it for more.

NFT ownership is recorded on the blockchain, and that entry acts as a digital pink slip. Our NFTs will be encoded using Metaplex's smart contract on the Solana Blockchain.

We offer a number of wallet connections for minting, but Phantom is the recommended wallet.

We will be using a smart contract deployed on the Solana chain to distribute the Thug Cats. The tokens can be verified on the blockchain and our smart contract code can be audited by the Solana core devs.
