Cryptozoology

Season1

Dear Hunters,

They live in the shadows... but it’s time to prove their existence. We grew up reading books on myth and legend, taking notes on each and every beast. We wanted to become adventurers, hunters willing to risk our lives to search for the creatures people didn’t believe in. Or maybe they were just too scared to accept their existence. We can’t be sure. But the time had come. We’d saved every penny we earned, packed our bags, and said our farewells. We knew this might be the last time we saw our family, but our desire to prove the world wrong was just too great.

Cryptozoology

We searched the globe, spending years in pursuit of these dangerous creatures. In that time, we met some interesting characters and saw some incredible sights. But we're not going to lie, we nearly didn’t survive. This site contains my journal and hand-drawn illustrations. I’ll happily share these with you but take note, there are challenges and secrets within my words. Only the best hunters will find my riches.

Signed

Features

Created on Cardano

Cardano blockchain is environmentally friendly, has minimal transaction fees, and increased scalability over other leading blockchain platforms. It’s the perfect blockchain to immortalize our creatures.

Unique hand-drawn artwork

Our artwork was created specifically for this project. It won’t be found anywhere else, not even in the darkest corners of the world. Each season consists of 13 hand-drawn pieces created with love from a local artist.

5 Colored rarities

You probably have more chance of surviving an encounter with one of these creatures than picking up the rarest cards. To get an idea, you have a 1.3% chance of getting a legendary drop. To get the exact creature you want in legendary is only 0.1%.

Limited run

This is a limited run of 10,010 cards. As soon as these are sold out, no more will be created, ever. If you missed our launch, keep your eyes open for future seasons or pick your favourite character up on the secondary market.

Distribution

We aspire to make this drop as fair as possible with the hope that as many people as possible will be able to have at least one creature in their wallet. Limited to a max of 5 per order and the cards are minted when purchased.

Collect, share, and trade

Each season we’ll have challenges for the most dedicated collectors. These will not be easy, but the reward is worth the sweat and tears. Be the first to meet the requirement, notify us, and you will receive a one-of-a-kind character concept card.

FAQ

The Cardano blockchain is environmentally friendly, has minimal transaction fees, and increased scalability over other leading blockchain platforms. It’s the perfect blockchain to immortalize our creatures.
As a shoutout to the old days when we grew up collecting basketball and Pokémon cards, we've opted to call our collection of NFTs... cards. These are non-fungible tokens stored on the Cardano blockchain, each with its own unique minting number.
Each card is ₳35. To help the purchase process you can buy a pack that contains a quantity of 1, 3 or 5 cards.
There will be 10,010 cards minted under the official season 1 policy ID. An additional 13 unique one-of-a-kind concept art cards will be generated on a second season 1 (promotion) policy ID and they will be handed out free to winners of our challenges and giveaways.
Our 13 individually hand-drawn creatures will come in 6 different rarities. Each rarity is represented in a different color. Visually some cards will look like duplicates, but like prints of real art, they will have their own unique number in the metadata e.g. mint 1 of 10. The rarest cards in this drop are legendary, printed with a gold background. There are only 10 of each creature minted and the chance of getting a specific creature in legendary is 0.10%.
  1. Before the launch, you should install one of the following wallets
  2. Have at least ₳40 (each card is roughly ₳35 + a little for transaction fees) ready so that you are prepared.
  3. Check our website and wait for the timer to hit zero. At this point, hit the buy button.
  4. You will be presented with three card packs to choose from. These will contain either 1, 3, or 5 cards. Pick the one that suits you.
  5. A unique wallet address will be shown with the amount you will need to pay.
  6. Open your Cardano wallet and send the payment with the exact address and amount. Get one wrong and you will either lose your ADA or receive a refund.
  7. In the background, a transaction will have been processed back to you with those cards as NFTs. You should check your wallet or pool.pm to confirm.
Please use only one of the three following wallets:
Don't send ADA from exchanges like Coinbase and Binance as these NFTs will be unrecoverable and lost forever
