The Pixel Puppers Project contains 10,000 unique, non-repeating NFT collectable puppers, hosted via IPFS. Click the link below to be redirected to the Pixel_Puppers Opensea.io page, or check out the "About" section below for more information on the Pixel Puppers Project and it's goals!
When Pixel Puppers launches, all the Puppers will be hidden for a 10 day period. All of the Puppers have been manually shuffled and randomized throughout the 10,000 run, so there will be no knowing what you have until the reveal!
FYI: There are rares, super-rares, and ultra-rares scattered throughout, so they are not loaded towards the front, middle, or end.
Minting price is 0.03 eth and is limited to a maximum of 10 Pixel Pupper NFT's at a time.
For each 250 Pixel Puppers minted, the holder of each 250 increment will receive 10x the minting price back into their wallet. This means #250, #500, #750, #1000 and so on will get a 0.3 ETH drop.
A special 20x minting price (0.6 ETH) give back will go to the holder of #10,000.
We will also be dropping a special 1 Eth giveaway per 1000 puppers minted. When 1000 are minted, the drawing will be between 1-1000. 2000 minted, 1-2000. 3k minted, 1-3000 and so on.
The first 250 Pixel Pupper owners are eligible for "OG Pupper" status on our Discord server and will be entered into a special 5 eth giveaway when 500 Pixel Pupper NFTs are adopted. There additional perks in the pipeline for our OG members to be announced in our Discord Server, The Pixel Puppers Online-Kennel-Club.
After 10 days (11/03/21), we will reveal all the NFT's. This can only be done one time: once they are revealed, they will never be hidden again.
When all 10,000 Pixel Puppers are adopted, we will withdraw the royalties collected up until that point and use it to sweep the floor. This is to clear as many of the lowest valued Pixel Puppers as we can, thus increasing the value of all the other Pixel Pupper NFT's. 20 days after the initial floor sweep, we will do this a second time. This process will only be done twice.
We may also burn unsold Pixel Puppers after a certain time, but that decision is situational and still to be determined.
Once all the Pixel Puppers are adopted and the floor has been swept twice, we will take 75% of the royalties and use them as community holdings. That 75% will be dispursed to our NFT holders based on how many Pixel Pupper NFTs they own, once per year, indefinitely. Any Pixel Puppers owned by us will automatically be removed from the percentatge, so any taken off the table by us during the floor sweeps will be ineligible.
There are a total of 9 different Puppers, each with a different population size. They have rarity traits specific to their breed, as well as rarity traits that encompass all of the Pixel Puppers. There are over 200 individual layers within this project. See the Rarity PDF at the bottom of the page for more information.
Pixel Puppers are ERC-721 unique, non-fungible token collectables created on the Ethereum mainnet.
Ethereum was chosen based on it's popularity and ease of use. We had initially desired to create via Polygon (MATIC) due to the low gas fees associated with it, but decided against this in order to keep the purchasing and selling as simplified as possible. While there are higher gas/network fees with Ethereum, there are over 150M distinct Ethereum addresses, compared to just over 200,000 Polygon addresses.
Each Pixel Pupper is hosted in a decentralized system via IPFS (InterPlanetary File System). The idea for using this was to insure that your Pixel Pupper NFT's remain permanent, immutable companions for as long as you hold them.
Pixel Puppers main goal is to support our favorite four-legged friends. It is the only NFT collectable where, at minimum, 20% of all gained funds will be donated to local, national, and global animal support groups and care-givers.
The goal is at least 20% of the total profits when all 10,000 Pixel Puppers are adopted. There's a heavy probability that the donation percentage will be significantly more, but at the very minimum, 20% of all sales will be donated to animal shelters, foster-care providers, veterinary centers in need, and animal rescue groups.
The royalties are set to 2.5% of resale value. This is primarily to insure that there will always be funds going into the donation pool and available to continue our outreaching mission of animal support and care, as well as insuring the two floor sweeps and the community holdings.
Pixel Puppers was conceptualized, designed, and developed by combat veteran and Purple Heart recipient Nick Fischer, and inspired by his non-pixeled rescue pupper, Hero. Hero was adopted and surrendered by four separate families before finding his forever home with Nick.
Yup. Each Pixel Pupper has been randomly generated with it's own unique DNA. There will only be one exactly like yours, and possible combinations have passed the billions. Hats, collars, backgrounds, boarders, tails, ears, body type, etc... Your Pixel Pupper is yours.
You can find the Pixel Pupper NFT collection on https://opensea.io/collection/thepixelpuppersproject, as well as mint your own Pixel Pupper NFT by clicking the button at the very top of the page to be redirected to our minting site. You can also reach out to us @PixelPupperoos on Twitter.
If you have any recommendations on where some of the donations should go, join our discord and suggest it! We'll look into it!
Who knows, if we can varify the information and if it falls within our projects goals, we may very well cut some donations to your suggested group!
A small run, and ultra collectable. These three doggos combined only make roughly 13% of the total collection.
The Dalmatian is a medium-sized dog, noted for its unique white coat marked with black or brown-colored spots. Originating as a hunting dog and carriage-protection dog in its early days, they were used to clear crowded streets for horse-drawn firefighting wagons in the 18th-19th centuries. Their origins can be traced back to present-day Croatia and its historical region of Dalmatia.
The husky is a sled dog used in the polar regions and known for their fast pulling-style and incredible endurance. Early ancestors of modern Huskies stem from Siberia around 2000BC. Modern racing huskies (primarily Alaskan Huskies) are the culmination of over 100 years of selective crossbreeding of the fastest dogs. Average wt is between 40-75lbs.
The "Apollo of Dogs," the Great Dane's earliest origins date back some 5000 years. Selectively bred for size and power, the Great Dane was used extensively for boar and bear hunting throughout the middle-ages. While large (upwards of 100lbs), the Great Dane holds a beautifully loyal and gentle temperament. Color ranges include tans, grays, whites, blacks, and spots.
Wonderfully Unique, these three doggs offer more variety to the Pixel Pupper collection.
The Australian Shepherd is a breed of herding dog from the United States. Developed in California in the 19th century, it is claimed the breed descends from a variety of herding breeds imported into California alongside sheep imported from Australia and New Zealand. Originally used solely as a herding dog, the Australian Shepherd has become one of the most popular companion dog breeds in North America.
Originally developed as a "Working Dog" in Germany, Boxers' ancestral roots stem back to the Assyrian Empire around 2300BC. Boxers are extremely energetic and strong and have been used for guarding and police work in the past. While they posses extremely powerful jaws, but are unbelievably affectionate, eager-to-please, and wonderful with children.
A dog’s fur color is determined by two types of pigment: eumelanin (blue/black) and pheomelanin (red/yellow). But special dilution genes can inhibit eumelanin production in dog hair, so it appears as grey instead. Occassionally referred to as "Blues," types of gray dogs include the Weimaraner, the Thai Ridgeback, Deerhounds, Greyhounds, Wolfhounds, and many, many more.
Hey... all Puppers are special, don't hate. These Pixel Puppers round out our collection.
With a variety of ears, tails, and bodies, nearly every breed of dog contains yellow or golden furred family members. Yellow Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Jindo, Wheaten Terriers, Anatolian Shepherd Dogs, Mastiffs and countless others are just a few examples.
We can't forget about the Black and White dogs! Several breeds of these dogs includ Boston Terriers, Border Collies, Newfoundlands, Tibetan Terriers, Springer Spaniels, etc.
Finally we reach the Brown Dogs, meant to represent all the other puppers around the world. Chocolate Labs, Poodles, Dachshund, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Belgian Malinois, and even several breeds listed previously have family members in the brown dogs category.
