If you’re into anime-inspired avatars and NFTs, you’d better get your digital wallet ready for the Waifu Adoption Protocol launch. These AI-generated assets are a perfect blend between style and delicacy – and they’re all waiting for you to adopt them!
Starting November 19, anime fans and collectors will be able to adopt one of these beautiful, AI-generated Waifu. The female NFT avatars are based on a sample size of 300,000 digital illustrations — and the results are outstanding!
Everything you should know about minting a Waifu
So you have decided that you want to adopt your very own waifu. Adopting a waifu is easy, but choosing the perfect one is hard. Actually, the team handpicked the top 1% of the Waifu avatars generated by AI to maximize their quality.
To illustrate, the project’s “waifu-ologists” have distinguished their collection into categories with the following token IDs :
- #0300-#4099 — 4750 Genesis Waifu NFTs
- #0050-#0299 — 300 Rare Waifu NFTs
- #0000-#0049 — 50 Legendary Waifu NFTs (Not for sale!)
Reservations were available for rare Waifu Adoption Protocol NFTs in the 24h before the sale. This would set you back 0,02 ETH. This feature allowed people to reserve and select their favourite Waifu.
The collectibles, based on the ERC-721 standard, will officially launch on November 19, at 7 pm EST. At mint, all genesis waifu and unclaimed rare waifu will be available to adopt. You may adopt up to 10, but Waifu come on a first-come-first-serve basis based on their token IDs. However, the more waifu are adopted, the more expensive they get.
Waifu Adoption Protocol’s Pricing Structure
The initial price per Genesis NFT will be 0,052 ETH. This will increase exponentially to 0,092 ETH until the supply runs out. Meanwhile, the Rare Waifu NFTs will cost 0,102 ETH. Then, they will also increase exponentially to 0,152 ETH.
As for the Legendary NFTs, only 50 will ever be available. For this particular sale, only one legendary waifu will to be offered. Moreover, the only chance to redeem it, is in a special giveaway. Thus, this gorgeous NFT is valued at 4 ETH. Stay tuned — the lucky winner will be announced on November 26th.
Waifu NFTs utility
Besides their unique anime-inspired beauty, Waifu are also useful in many ways. Holders can use the avatars as their social media PFP (profile picture), as well as in metaverse games and apps supporting ERC-721 standards.
Of course, you can also trade the NFTs on secondary marketplaces or exchange them with fellow collectors.
However, this is just the beginning, as the project roadmap announces plenty of exciting things to come!
Project roadmap & team members
The Waifu Adoption Protocol has big plans ahead. Starting the second quarter of 2022, Rare NFT holders will receive 1 free mint for all subsequent seasons, while Genesis NFT owners will get 1 mint pass. In addition, the team is also planning to launch an exclusive DAO (for Legendary and Rare NFT owners only)!
By the end of 2022, the community will be able to take part in revenue share, while receiving token rewards. At last, in 2023, you’ll start using your pretty Waifu in staking-based metagames too.
The team behind this exciting roadmap includes artists, programmers, and crypto-natives – all of whom are anime enthusiasts. Their goal is to create a community that shares the same passions for NFTs and anime – and the cute Waifu create the perfect link!
