Platypus (commonly referred to as duckbill) is an Australian amphibian mammal. The platypus happens to be the only surviving species of the Ornithorhynchidae family, common to the Eastern Australian freshwater bodies. As a result, there are concerns about the animal going extinct, especially due to extreme drought in Australia, particularly the fires that ravaged the country, severely damaging the animal's natural habitat. This has led Tokenpuss to start a project which entails creating awareness about the platypus in the NFT ecosystem.
What is the Awareness Programme about?
The project is a collection of 10000 unique NFTs called Tokenpuss and 33 handmade tokens representing the platypus but living in the metaverse. To achieve this, the project would be launched in two stages; Stage 1: A Star is Born. At this stage, a total of 8000 NFTs will be made available in December for 0.05 ETH each. And there would be weekly giveaways; every tenth of the first 100 owners will get an airdrop, and every 500, 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000thowner will get a unique merch. Upon 100% sales, the project will open an NFT merch shop, and $10,000 worth of ETH would be given to a minter with a specific NFT. The presale is on December 11, 2021, while the sale will launch on December 12, 2021, on Opensea.
Stage 2 would entail integrating the NFT into the real world by creating a blockchain mobile game based on the Tokenpuss in collaboration with Aussie Adrenaline Game Studios. The game would allow players to collect, play and trade with Tokenpuss.
The project has partnered with influencers and organizations passionate about wildlife conservation. Ten percent of the weekly gains is stated to go to the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) to improve the habitat and conditions of the species especially.
