WHO CREATED THIS PROJECT

  • The Proof Podcast was created by Kevin Rose and it is the most popular NFT podcasts for serious NFT collectors and traders.
  • It is also my favorite podcast.
  • He has amazing guests, a very unique perspective, and they dive deep into topics you won’t hear anywhere else
  • From this podcast a community of listeners emerged and now over 150,000 people listen to each one.

PROOF COLLECTIVE

  • And in January they released the proof collective NFT which is a 1000 pass collection dedicated to cultivating a passionate community of collectors and artists. 
  • In January Proof Collective Passes minted dutch auction style and went down close to around 1ETH and now sits at a 67ETH floor. 
  • The Proof Collective community is made up of the best collectors in the world and collectively these 1000 members own 817 Bored Apes and 148 Crypto Punks. You do the math. 
  • But Kevin and the Proof Team wanted to create a way for more people to join the community and participate in the growth of their business
  • So this is where Moonbirds Come in

MOONBIRDS

  • Moonbirds will be their PFP project
  • Moonbirds are little Owls and the art seems to be super fun and simple
  • However I want to start with the coolest feature I’ve seen in NFT’s in a VERY long time
  • This feature is Proof Of Time with Nesting. 
  • In simple terms, this means the longer you hold your NFT the better the rewards get
  • They have planned amazing utility and rewards for holders, but with nesting, you unlock these rewards when you’ve held (or nested) these NFT’s for x amount of days.
  • The longer you nest the more fun, useful, and profitable they become
  • We can compare this to Apes, where everyone who held Apes or Mutants at one moment in time (A snapshot), got rewarded with the same amount of Ape Coin. In a podcast Kevin stated that he didn’t like this and he thought those who supported from the beginning should have been given a larger share.
  • And this is premise behind nesting
  • In terms of rewards he didn’t want to release too much 
  • But we know that Kevin and the proof team have the most resources in the NFT space in terms of artists, celebrities, and overall reach, so for those who hold over the next 5 years, I imagine these rewards and utility are going to be unreal and include meeting people in real life
  • He also teased a metaverse project they are building called Highrise which is a unique project that will allow moonbirds holders to hangout and have a unique experience together

MINT DETAILS AND DISTRIBUTION

  • 10,000 Moonbirds
  • 2000 given to proof collective holders (2 moonbirds each)
  • ~150 given to team, staff, advisors, and involved celebs/influencers
  • Dutch auction – starting at 2.5eth
  • Works its way down from there (6hours) all the way down to .1
  • Kevin it will drop a lot and people will be able to get in around 1 (Personally, I think they will sell out at 2.5)
  • The money raised from this sale will be reinvested into their business, and they will be hiring close to 50 people to help manage this community and innovate in the NFT space
  • Kevin’s vision for this project is to create a top 5 PFP NFT project and blue chip
  • Obviously 2.5ETH is still expensive for many, but if there was one project for someone who is new to NFT’s I would say that this is one of the lowest risk NFTs you could get and would also provide a community that will help you learn and understand the space.
