Chris: Hi there! Please introduce yourself.
Paul: I'm Paul, and I'm one of the people who started this initiative.
I became interested in cryptocoins in 2017 and have since become an entrepreneur.
I am an art enthusiast and world traveler. Owner of MAYC #7294 and others.
Chris: Upcoming Kings collection is developed 4k 3D quality. What inspired you and the team to bring together the lords of the jungle in an NFT collection on Web 3.0?
Paul: Developing an NFT project has been on our minds for a while. The initiative of creating a young artist launchpad gave us access to a lot of 3d artistic talent.
However, the deepest admiration for "The Mapogos," the greatest lion kings who have ever existed, finally inspired us to develop this collection.
With our NFT project, we hope to take things to a new level and introduce a new attitude to the NFT marketplace.
Chris: The whitelisting mint starts in just a few days! How can the interested participants get on the list? What would be the price of the token in the presale?
Paul: Indeed, time has flown by, and we're just a few days away from the big events on the 23rd (presale) and 25th (public sale)
The "Get Whitelisted" button on our website allows NFT enthusiasts to join our whitelist.
The WhiteList spot can also be won through contests on our discord server.
The whitelist mint is 0.2 ETH. However, we're giving away half of the collection to whitelist members.
This means that 3028 of the 6006 items on the white list can be minted at 0.2 ETH (each participant having the option to mint 1, 2 or 3 NK NFTs)
Chris: More importantly, what do the Notorious Kings look like? How many Kings will be released for public minting? Also, how do the investors identify the rare traits of these tokens?
Paul: We think they look awesome! We attached a few items to support our point of view.
For the Public Minting there will be only 2500 items available (in case the whitelist won't be filled for any reasons, the remaining available positions will be added to the 2500 available on public mint)
Rarity.tools and Rarity.sniper are both ready to manage the collection rarity.
Chris: Also, what will be the price of the token on the public minting date? Is there a limit to the number of transactions that can be made by an investor?
Paul: The public mint is at 0.6 ETH and it takes place on Saturday June 25th. The maximum items can be minted in Public Mint is 6 per wallet.
Chris: Additionally, what else can the investors do with their tokens after making the purchase? Please list some of the key benefits for the investor?
Paul: Glad you asked. This is where it gets interesting. Investors need to know that once the project has reached sold out status, we will proceed in giving away our massive post sale incentives.
Every holder of NK NFT at a publicly given time will enter the raffle for
● additional 100 free NK NFTs
● 1 holder will win a 4 days luxury safari in Sabi Sands experience for 2.(or 80% of the value)
● in December 2022-Jan 2022, 1 NK NFT holder will be awarded with a sports car
The big plans for NK are just beginning.
We are looking to launch a 2D lion themed game by the end of summer. This is being coded by a 22 years old 2300 ELO chess player!
NK NFT holders will have utility in this game. We are looking to develop this however only to a certain level as we have more plans for the future that we want to engage in.
Chris: Again, what are the plans for the future of the Notorious Kings? How does the team plan to expand the scope for token holders in 2022?
Paul: We have a defined goal and we structured it in such a way in which the revenues from Notorious Kings NFT will engage immediately in developing a 20.000 item new collection! 6006 units will be free minted by the NK NFT holders and the remaining items will be publicly offered in a public sale.
We will be looking at a mutated lion collection derived from the use of NK NFT and a certain serum(blood).
The artistic part we want to achieve is an escalation even to our current project.
We won't stop here.While we hope to achieve a smooth creation process, by march 2023 we should list this 2nd collection and move into our next big thing.
The beginning of 2024 should be the time for us to showcase our inspiraverse platform which will consist of metaverse lots. NK NFT holders and the new collection owners will be facilitated.
What NK NFT holders need to keep in mind is that we are capacitated in identifying resources and most importantly we are here to reach goals
Chris: Consequently, what has been your efforts in marketing the Notorious Kings to make them popular?
Paul: Being our first NFT project, the marketing business was tough for us especially at very early stages. Slowly but surely though we achieved the goal of creating a fanbase through the form of a close to 20k members community on discord, 15k on Twitter and about 70k on instagram.
If we were to choose between spending 100$ on either marketing or finding a 3d artist with a specific talent we will go for the later. Why? Because we are art fans and we want the results and creation to speak for ourselves.
Many would say that our team is not doxxed as we are not as active on social media and our collaborators don't look for fame.
We would say that what we create is the ultimate proof and our focus is mostly there.
Chris: In the end, please state the process of minting a Notorious Kings NFT in detailed steps.
Paul: Ok, so the token distribution is as follows:
● Total supply : 6006
● Private sale : 478
● Whitelist ( presale ) : 3028
● Public sale : 2500
Private sale will take place between June 17 and June 20th. There will be 478 items minted out of which 200 will be redistributed to the free NK NFT winners.
Whitelist mint (0.2 ETH+gas) will take place on 23rd of June at 21.00 Central European Time-Switzerland -and will be live for 48h.
All whitelisted wallets will be able to mint 1,2 or max 3 NK NFT
Emails will be sent in advance to minters and asked to confirm and specify intention to mint (1,2 or 3 items)
All these for a smoother minting process.
If there are items left unminted they will be transferred to the public sale mint.
On June 25th Public Mint will take place (0.6 ETH+gas).
We plan the reveal on Mike Tyson's birthday on june 30th.
