The Announcement of More Announcements

  1. Please don’t FUD the project for the time it takes to do things, we are working very hard.
  2. We are taking measures to make it more equitable. We understand the hype created a scenario where not everyone will get an NFP. This was not planned. However, if everyone gets an NFP, they aren’t nearly as cool.
  3. In reference to being a little more equitable, that does not mean we are introducing a bonding curve. We are still auctioning off the majority of the NFPs (as was the original plan). Hashmasks and other projects caught flack for being a cash grab, as well. People made fun of their bonding curves. There isn’t a right way to do this where everyone is happy. Please understand that we are taking what everyone says into account but that does not mean we will do what each and every one of you in particular want.
  4. There isn’t a way you can stop whales from getting what they want. We’re here to sell NFPs and we have longer term plans build some cool things. We aren’t here to mint thousands of NFPs, write extensive code, & test a wide variety of minting platforms in order to cater to every single person who has a Twitter or Discord account. That’s not only impossible… it’s a ridiculous ask.
  5. We are still launching 11 pepes in the first drop. Then it will likely move closer to 50 at a time. We would love to get to the point we are launching 100 NFPs/day but, for now, we are trying to get them out there as fast as we can without messing something up.
  6. We have been clear that rarity will be determined afterwards. We want people to buy NFPs because they like them as art, not based on rarity schedules that are determined ahead of launch.
  7. This project is not even a week old so we’re rushing to make sure they are quality & the metadata ensures they are on chain forever.
  8. This project is half defi community and half NFT community. There will be some overlap where people disagree. Please be respectful of everyone.
  9. Art is interpretive, if you don’t think it’s art then don’t buy NFPs. If you don’t like the way we are doing it you are free to start your own project and learn from our mistakes.
  10. We are literally trying our best. I have BarnBridge to run and I could work on other things. Tim Kang is an avid art collector and took time to launch this and write code. I started NFP because I wanted one as my profile picture and have now realized other people do too. This wasn’t planned as much as people would like and we get that. It’s still cool in my opinion.
  11. Pepe likes fair and so do we, so we are letting everyone know what’s going on before we launch.
