Community driven project on Solana, focused on bringing awareness on mental health and supporting artists.
Through the creative and technical process of creating an NFT project, we want to build a community of kind and like-minded people.
Our main goal is to give back to this community.
Here is how we see it :
10% of Monsterz launch revenues and 15% of the royalties are going to different charities revolving around mental health, those charities are chosen by our community.
We also opened a safe space in our discord server to provide our holders with a place where they can share their stories, feelings, emotions when feel the need for it.
Messages in the safe space can be anonymous or not.
Canvas is collection of art pieces from different artists that we airdrop to our community.
Our community can propose artists they want to see us work with and we will try and get them exclusive art pieces airdropped as NFTs.
This collection is exclusively listed on Exchange.art.
The ultimate goal for us is to have the whole project controlled by the DAO.
Spookyz and Monsterz holders will be able to make proposals and vote for those that make sense to them.
We will support their choices and do everything we can to bring them to life!
This the what we have in mind for the roadmap but we are constantly discussing the project with the community so this might change if the community requests it.
At the beginning of September 2021, the idea for this project started to pop in our minds.
Lia Moonrise had a first go at the drawings, we were all very enthusiastic about it!
Mid-october, we started thinking that to bring a small community together in the project and get some funds to kick start Monsterz, we could do a stealth launch of a small collection named Spookyz.
We started working on that right away.
We launched Spookyz in a stealth drop to organically build a small active community that will help us launch Monsterz.
We were expecting it take 3-4 days to sell out, it took us by surprise and sold out in only 10h.
We are now working hand in hand with the Spookyz holders on Discord to build the Monsterz collection and the DAO.
We want to involve you in this project as much as possible!
One side of this project is supporting the artists while providing benefits to our community.
To achieve that, we are airdropping art pieces from different artists in a collection we named Canvas.
Already a few pieces have been airdropped and we will continue to do that regularly.
The Canvas collection is exclusively listed on Exchange.art
We created this website to explain what Spookyz and Monsterz are in more details.
Later on, the DAO will also be part of this website.
We have started charity events where we sell unique NFTs drawn by our artist Lia during auctions.
The funds obtained during these auctions are all donated to charities.
We are switching the marketing from Spookyz to Monsterz until the launch is done.
The goal is to have a successful launch for Monsterz but also to get people excited about the whole project, not just Spookyz.
We hope for the community to help us on that part as this work best when done in a team effort.
To thank all the early investors of the project, we will airdrop one Monsterz for each Spookyz that you hold in your wallet.
For instance, if you have 3 Spookyz in your wallet, you will receive 3 Monsterz.
Your Spookyz will have to be unlisted in order to receive the airdrop but don’t worry, we will let you know when the snapshot will be taken so you will have time to delist your listed Spookyz.
The big moment has arrived, it’s time for the public launch of Monsterz.
The launch details like the supply and the price for instance will have been decided with the approval of the early DAO.
We hope for a sell out but even if we don’t, we will continue working on the project as we planned to do so initially.
With this project, we want to give back to the community.
A way to do that is to make donations to charities.
We have some ideas on which charities we want to help but once again, the early DAO will decide what is best.
10% of the drop revenues and 15% of the royalties will be donated to charities focus on mental health.
We also want to kick start the DAO by funding it with 10% of the drop revenues.
After that, the DAO will be funded by the secondary market royalties of Monsterz.
The amount of royalties each Monsterz generates will be decided by the DAO before launch but 100% of these royalties will go into the DAO.
You know the drill, we will do all we can to make that happen as fast as possible!
We want Monsterz to be listed on Magic Eden and Exchange.art and have them ranked on Moonrank.
Monsterz holders will have the same voting power as Spookyz holders in the DAO.
Since Spookyz holders are early supporters who received an extra Monsterz for each Spookyz they hold, they will have twice as much voting power.
In the first phase, the proposals and votes will be done in discord in the holders channels but we plan on building a dedicated website so that 1 NFT = 1 vote.
You can now make formal proposals on what to do with the DAO funds and what direction the project takes.
Spookyz and Monsterz holders will be able to stake their NFT and receive $MNSTR tokens as rewards.
Staking both Spookyz + Monsterz will add a multiplier on the rewards.
$MNSTR tokens will be used to buy Canvas (exclusive art pieces) from different artists as well as participating in 1/1s auctions.
We have ideas to add even more utility to this token, all these ideas will be voted by the DAO.
We plan on releasing more collections after that, with all Monsterz and Spookyz holders getting airdrop from those collections.
We will work hand in hand with the DAO to decide what will be best for the community.
Just teasing a bit, our artist Lia Moonrise already has some great ideas on new collections in completely different styles than Monsterz and Spookyz, some next level art!
The Canvas collection will also continue to grow as we work with more artists to airdrop pieces to our community!

IRL, the three of us are family, we know each other very well.
We decided to create this project together to have fun and build something that feels like us.
We are all living in Belgium EU - CET, and we are between 34 and 38 years old.
We all have different skills and tasks on this project but we all interact with the community and act as moderators on the Discord server.
The artist behind Spookyz and Monsterz, she worked on the Gloom Punk Club collection before, this time she is working on this project as a complete part of the team, she is here with us and she will keep working with us on the next ideas !
She is working as an artist full time, always with a pen in her hand, ready to draw / paint / print whatever she is inspired by.
NFTs are her new passion, she loves it and doesn't plan on stopping now !
A Software Engineer for the last 15 years, he has a lot of experience in building projects from scratch and managing teams.
He's been a crypto enthusiast for years and he was dragged into NFTs a few months ago by Auraze.
Here he will be mostly working on the backend, Candy Machine, infrastructure etc. making sure that all the launches and minting processes will be as smooth as possible.
Like CandyMachinist, he also has been working as a Software Engineer for the last 15 years. His favorite part about this job is the possibility to change it completely based on the technology he's working on.
This project is no exception since he's never worked on any blockchain project before but there are so many good resources and amazing people on Solana that we know for a fact that we can make this project a success.
His job here is obviously the tech but he will also be the one who makes sure everybody is in sync and focus a lot on all the social / marketing aspects.
