What is the ethos behind Cheeky Rangas?
Orangutan translates to ‘person of the forest’ in Malay, highlighting their natural habitat’s importance to their survival. Orangutans are an endangered species, with less than 115 thousand of the great apes remaining in the world. This is due to humans hunting them for food, deforestation, habitat loss and the illegal pet trade.
Who created the project?
Co-founded by John ‘Jed’ Davis and Mahesh Silva, Cheeky Rangas aims to ensure the survival of these distinctive and beautiful animals through empowerment and action.
About Cheeky Rangas NFT artwork
Using hand-drawn creative art and special effects, the Cheeky Rangas NFT team wants to unite a community of like-minded people who will become virtual activists. To do this, they have developed 9,700 Orangutan avatar character utility-enabled NFTs.
Each one, designed by Bill Wood, is individual and remarkable, with mind-blowing traits. Furthermore, the roadmap contains plans, random airdrops for super rare animated NFTs, and unique art series NFTs.
Cheeky Rangas will turn up the noise on the survival of Orangutans
A combination of art, web3 and crypto with real-world issues, the Cheeky Rangas are powerful NFTs. Much more than avatars, the CR community are incredible virtual activists with an admirable goal that everyone can get behind.
To achieve their goal of changing the conversation and highlighting the plight of Orangutans and the rainforest, Cheeky Rangas will ‘turn up the noise‘ and actively work towards helping the endangered animals.
Cheeky Rangas aims to create a community of avid NFT collectors, organizations, celebrities, influencers and animal lovers to take positive steps and collective actions to protect the great apes.
Saving the rainforest with NFTs using utility and community
Along with helping to save endangered animals, several fantastic benefits come with being a member of the Cheeky Rangas NFT community. Firstly, you get access to the ultra-exclusive Jungle Bar. Here, you can relax amongst your fellow Rangas and enjoy the luxuries of owning one of these Orangutan NFTs and having full commercial rights.
As the project grows, so will your voice in the community. You will have a say on CR issues, get priority access to future drops, and participate in airdrops and allocations. Furthermore, you will get special entry to the members-only Discord channel and numerous premier events.
The roadmap is extensive, and the team has plans for future NFT drops of ‘Ranga’s best friends’, community building, airdrops, a Cheeky Rangas art series, community building and more. There is also an official Cheeky Rangas merch store opening soon!
Cheeky Rangas NFT has a ‘pure donation policy.’
Each NFT purchase will help save an Orangutan. The Cheeky Rangas will help the animals in several ways.
Firstly, 25% of all the mint proceeds and 75% of the ongoing royalty will go directly to relevant Wildlife and Wilderness projects and organizations. So far, the Cheeky Rangas team has plans to donate to The Orangutan Project and Crypto for Charity.
Then, every Ranga mint protects five acres of rainforest for two years. So that means each NFT you buy will directly help the survival of Orangutans.
