Join us as we take a look at our Discovery of the Day! Whether it’s their amazing artwork, vibrant communities or the unique features planned for their projects, there is definitely something here to grab your attention. Today we bring you the Goons of Balatroon!

Bair or Bula?

Ola amigos! Welcome to another unmissable Discovery of the Day! If you’re into crypto, or just trading in general, there’s little doubt that you’re already familiar with the concept of Bears and Bulls. Whether you think the markets are going to tank or you’re ready for that trip to the moon, we all act like goons at times, right? And there’s nothing wrong with that (from time to time).

Now the Goons of Balatroon , they’re a crazy bunch— consisting of some 9,696 Bairs (Bears) and Bulas (Bulls) on the Ethereum Blockchain, these two wild and warring clans are pitted against each other in an epic struggle for supremacy over the wild ecosystem of Balatroon. Why, just take a look at the map of the Goons’ world…

You know, that Mt. Xog place looks mighty familiar…

So how are Goons created? Well, here’s the tech version their FAQ offers up:

Each Goon was created by time algorithms, generated by combining several properties and randomizing rarities in several categories. These rarities include clothing items, jewelry, and facial features

Hmmm, how to summarize the intricate and zany story behind the Goons of Balatroon? I’m not kidding, I can’t actually do this narrative justice in such a short article, but let’s just say there lived two brilliant scientists among the Great Species, one Dr. Rev Regor, a member of the Bull Faction, and his partner, a Bear named Dr. Otomakan. To cut to the chase, one extremely dumb Bull (name redacted) accidentally discovers time travel, Otomakan and Regor have a fight, and the two wind up 9,696 years in the past, 200 years before the Great Eruption of Mt. Balatroon. Oh, and it doesn’t end there. Glancing over a few key details, the Goons of Dr. Otomakan and those of Dr. Rev Regor are engaged in an all-out brutal conflict. The question is: which side will you support, dear crypto Goon? You Bair? Or Bula!?

Dr. Otomakan is noted for his signature Jedi Robes and charming taxidermy smile

So who’s the artist behind the Goons of Balatroon? From their official website, it seems that the father of the Goons, as it were, is none other than award-winning illustrator Aniket Trivedi . We see your creations Aniket and we totally love them!
