Join us as we take a look at our Discovery of the Day! Whether its their art, their exciting communities, or the unique aspects of their roadmap, there is definitely something here for everyone.
Today we are taking a look at The WolfGang .
What is The WolfGang?
The WolfGang is a generative NFT project featuring 10,000 highly detailed and stylized Wolves featuring a lot of really interesting traits. From hoodies, to swanky jackets, to Zombie skins, these wolves are some of the best looking designs we have seen as of yet.
The project launched on July 26th, 2021 and subsequently sold out on August 5th with a lot of action in between. What really sets The WolfGang apart from other projects is their ambitious roadmap and pace of development which really sets the bar high for this project.
A Roadmap to Eclipse All Others
The roadmap for The WolgGang features several ambitious projects including donations, companions, breeding, and even a game. While an ambitious roadmap can be concerning for some projects, the fact that The Wolfgang team has already delivered a fully fleshed out series of companions since the launch is a great sign for the future.
Let’s take a look at some of the most interesting items from the roadmap.
The Cutest Companions
The Wolf Gang Pups are by far one of the coolest looking companions to launch in any project. These little pupperonis feature 4,000 randomly generated companion pups with a ton of really great traits.
The most impressive thing about the companions was the pace at which the team delivered. While some projects (looking at you Elephants) have been working on their companions for weeks if not longer, The WolfGang Pups were launched before the project even completed their sellout.
That says a lot about the dedication and focus of the team as well as their technical capabilities to deliver on the rest of the roadmap.
In order to get a pup you will need to have minted a Wolf numbered between 1-4000 and pups can be claimed at the official WolfGang website .
Breed Your Perfect Wolf
This may be the feature that is the most exciting aspect of The WolfGang. Breeding will be a major feature and very different from anything else on the market. While other projects have approached breeding with some succes, Axie and CryptoKitties in particular, The Wolfgang is taking a much different approach.
The WolfGang breeding process will allow holders to merge 2 Wolves that they own and select their favorite traits from each. That’s right, custom bred Wolves! Instead of breeding your wolves and getting a random generative wolf in return, you can now pick and choose which traits from the parents you want to keep and make the wolf that is perfect for you!
This is an entirely new approach to breeding and should bring a lot of excitement to the secondary market as certain traits become more or less in demand for breeding.
It does come with a few caveats though.
- You must own 2 wolves to breed.
- You can only select traits from one of the 2 parent Wolves
- The parents are burned in the process
- Bred wolves cannot be bred a 2nd time
This breeding system will add an entirely new aspect to a project that is already a lot of fun. It’s both exciting and also uncharted territory. It will be very interesting to see how this plays out and if other projects follow suit. Suffice it to say, we have a close eye on this one!
Plus Donation, Giveaways, and a Game!
We told you the roadmap was ambitious and we weren’t kidding! Along with the main project, the companions, and breeding, they also have made several donations with more planned, have given away hundreds of NFTs including a Bored Ape, and still have an entire PVE/PVP game yet to build.
Also worth noting is that the project has seen support from Trey Songz and Floyd Mayweather who both hold wolves.
All of this points to a project that has a lot of room to grow and a really exciting future. Bottom line, the team has proven to be capable and has a roadmap I think a lot of communities would be envious of.
We had the pleasure of conducting an exclusive interview with the Project Lead for The WolfGang. Find out more about the story behind the project, what motivates them, and the crazy feat they managed to pull off launching The Wolfgang and doing all of the art in just 48 hours!
