Starting off 2018 with a bang, CryptoTitties entered as the 19th NFT project on the blockchain. This project launched on January 4th, 2018 with 144 Titties available to mint, and boasts the very first NFT charity in the world. CryptoTitties have a charity fund for Breasties.org, to which they aim to donate 100 Eth, as well as a now retired prize fund for winners of their Motorboat Race. Since the recent decision to retire the race, all funds in the wallet will go toward The Breasties
Original Launch Date: January 4th, 2018
Mint Price: .05-20 Eth
Not only do these cheeky nfts showcase breasts of all sorts imaginable, the project also experienced a recent skyrocket to the floor price of 6.5. The low supply combined with provocative, yet clean art, and simple roadmap have kept their followers pleased for more than 4 years.
CryptoTitties had a slow rise to their 6 eth floor, but has grown to be a favorite amongst their collectors, with a discord still actively discussing floor prices and sharing CryptoTittie memes.
The project was created by Hami Gendron (Dev, design & Marketing), and Rogers Sampaio
(Solidity & support), partners in the development firm 7th Wave. These creators have also gone on to co-found other companies together ranging from blockchain rewards to travel.
CryptoTitties was born from something quite thoughtful and beautiful. When one of the founder’s mothers was diagnosed with breast cancer, they set off to find a way to provide people with breast cancer cannabis as part of their treatment plan. This is where Cryptotitties aligned with the non-profit, The Breasties. They paved the way to what is now considered common practice in a roadmap. Yay Altruism!
I had a chance to speak with Hami, one of the founders of CryptoTitties. He was a pure delight and currently has his hands in some really exciting things related to web3. He shared some great stories, including one about applying for a trademark, but not being granted one because of the word “titties”. Oh bureaucracy. More will be revealed, but as for the future of CryptoTitties, collectors may expect a new roadmap with some interesting and exciting plans for current and future holders.
