NakedPunks is a derivative NFT project of CryptoPunks by LarvaLabs, which is now owned by Yuga Labs. We have re-used all the traits, but launched them through our own mixer to generate new combinations with full size naked bodies.
How are NakedPunks created?
Let’s start at the basics: our collection is created on the Ethereum network, currently the most-used blockchain technology for creating smart-contracts. Specifically with a smart-contract which has the name/recognizer “ERC-721”. This was created in order to simplify creating, storing and trading Non-Fungible Tokens, or NFT’s.
We were baffled by the creative way the people behind LarvaLabs used a 24 by 24 pixels box to create 10,000 different CryptoPunks characters. Even though they seemed like an experiment and costed (nearly) no money to mint at launch, it now has a floor price of over 80 ETH (which is around 120,000 USD at the time of writing).
We were so inspired that we wanted to make a derivative of this project. We had this idea of CryptoPunks being naked guys and girls for quite a while but as it wasn’t clear how far a derivative project can be taken before it gets troublesome, we waited.
Now, after celebrating more than 5 years of CryptoPunks, we want to do it. We want to show our art and spark some excitement in you. Especially those that never had the chance to mint CryptoPunks in 2017. You’ll be able to mint NakedPunks in 2022.
What's the mint price?
Just like CryptoPunks, you can mint NakedPunks for free.
Can I get a full body for my original CryptoPunk?
Of course we had to think about the OG’s as well. So if you own a CryptoPunk you get a matching NakedPunk for free as well. We will provide more information after mint.
How will the ID's work?
NakedPunks will start with ID 10000. CryptoPunks holders can get their matching NakedPunks with the same ID number.
What an ugly word... NakedPunks NFT is art. However, this doesn't mean we can't airdrop some cool stuff in the future, as long as we stay naked.
Lastly, hopefully the guys at Yuga Labs will appreciate our derivative art as well. If they won’t… well, you can’t make a bird not fly. You’ll have to cut off its wings.
But then you’re the guy who cut off the wings of a bird… in Web3… are you going to be that guy?
