Real Goat Mafia is the second project by AvaxNFTs.com, with the free WL only available to verified holders of our first project Avax Machina, before going to the public. If you are not already an AXM Holder, grab yourself an Avax Machina here and verify your Machina in our Discord here.
Real Goat Mafia, mints on Joepegs on 3rd of October 2022.
From an artistic standpoint, we felt there were too many cartoon animal NFT projects. We are also witnessing a sudden rise in AI art projects, but even still, something is missing. We wanted something real.
So we spent days photographing the inhabitants of a goat shelter, and made the beautiful creatures into unique 1/1 NFTs, collectively known as the Real Goat Mafia.
The RGM collection turns real-life animals into an exclusive mob, a super high quality art photograph collection of NFTs, with as much IRL metadata as possible.
Why Real Goat Mafia?
Firstly, we wanted the collection to demand respect. We really enjoyed the carelessness of the beautiful creatures, and although they operate independently, they also move around in a herd with zero fucks given. Across the blockchains there has been a multitude of NFT goat projects, and naming the project was difficult. You’d be amazed at how unique each goat looks and acts, as there are hundreds of breeds.
Each NFT is a high quality portrait of a Goat, and will proudly display up to 8 different accurate real-life metadata such as weight, age, breed and personality. Goats have an astounding amount of different attributes and inherent rarity, they also have a huge range of personalities that we have accurately captured by talking to their individual carers to understand their character during the production of this collection.
There will only be 112 NFTs available, making them ultra-exclusive and scarce, so if you want to get on the whitelist verify your Machina now and join our Discord within the next few weeks. We have a very small amount of WL spots, that we are giving out to select people and projects.
What next for the RGM, post mint?
Well, that’s up to the community of holders, we will create a holders channel for the Real Goats Mafia and in there the mob can collectively decide what the Real Goat Mafia do going forward. We could exhibit the goats IRL, as AvaxNFTs will retain the CCO & IP.
The photo collection is truly fantastic and we were blown away by the results. We needed a crew of people for the shoot, and chasing hundreds of goats to be photographed was the most arduous fun work we’ve ever had.
We have decided to not include a roadmap as this is a fine art project. The members of the discord will decide what happens with the future of the project. And just like the Goats, we are naturally curious about what the future will hold. It counts as an auxiliary part of the roadmap for Machina holders, and as the second AvaxNFTs drop.
If great ideas are put forward by the community, the AvaxNFTs team will collectively decide on the best ideas to execute. For example, we may look to bring awareness to the collection by minting on another chain, rewarding holders, but everything is up for discussion currently.
The Real Goat Mafia Twitter is now live, so please give it a follow.
At end of the day, animals are arguably the most non fungible entity on the planet, and we feel that there are already enough cartoon animals taking the spotlight, so it’s time for something different!
