Bull Runners are the bouncers of the Ethereum Network. Employed by the mafia bosses, they control the streets, protect the markets and watch who comes and goes. You dont mess with the bulls!
Bull Runners are just one part in this blockchain universe, they heavily favour the Ethereum Network and make sure traffic is running smoothly on a day to day basis. The past decade there has been a dark dark power lurking over the land, more chains being activated and more evil pouring on-chain. Collect your Bull Runners and get ready for a Battle!
We are looking to build a DAO based community, were NFT holders get to make decisions about how the project moves forward over time. This is a very large task, but using a ranking system on discord, we will be able to value longterm holders, increase or decrease their ranking by their quality and quanitity of holdings and then give adequate voting rights.
It's very important to note that every single 'Runner' is hand drawn, with unique features, traits and personality in mind.
There are only ever going to be 1000 'Bull Runners' minted in Season 1 and 4000 Interstellar Runners in Season 2.
This roadmap outlines our project targets, in contrast with minted supply
We are here to build a strong community, launch our Season 1 'Bull Runners' NFT and give some value back to the community.
Website launch, initial supply minting, giveaways and our offical launch party!
Once we reach a minted supply of 35% we will start working with larger scale community members in the NFT space, we will produce some collab artwork to auction off to the community, with the proceeds going directly to charity. We will also start working on some 1/1 pieces that will be airdropped to community members for holding our NFT, interacting with the community and being a stand up 'Bull'.
We have agreed internally that 20% of generated profits every single month will be going towards 'Children in Need' & 'Help for Heroes' not only locally but around the world. As we progress as a DAO and become more and more intergrated with the community making decisions, we will be looking to vote on future charities and have a more impactful approach.
That is right, NFT holders will be able to view exclustive content in a few different formats that help tell our story in more detail. We are planning to drop 1/1 comic strips, storyboard and original sketches. This may also include a interactive piece of content that holders can use and/or interact with to influence their own NFT's. This is a mystery as we dont want to spoil the surprised ahead!
As we hit a 60% minted supply which is more than half, we can now start to begin implementing our process for being a more decentralized and DAO based project. This will likely be done through a rank and voting system on discord, each month we will hold 'Bull Runner' round tables where holders can vote on what happens next, were we should focus our efforts etc. This is a very exciting step in the project.
We are launching our Second Season!
A promise for a minimum of 3 comic strips and 4 airdrops over the next six months from the launch of Season 2, this is for holders of Season 2 and will be an exclusive value add to the community. Airdrops and Comics will be distributed to your holding address of your Season 2 runner.
Season 2 holders will be able to manage a NFT fund with a given starting value of 10 ETH, we will fund this NFT fund with a % of our sale, holders will be able to vote and make decisions on what NFT's to purchase, sell or trade.
Using a voting and request mechanism holders will be able to request purchases from the fund, and then the rest of the community will be able to approve of deny the vote to make a transaction.
We will fund some very special pieces and allow for unique and incredible 1/1 commisions and charity auctions.
We will form a internal collective of holders / owners of Season 2, they will be able to request and vote on potential commision pieces.
Dropped to all holders, this will be similar to a pet style dynamic. These "pets" will increase the voting power of holders by a certain % and allow for users to get large voting powers via a unique, fun and interesting secondary collection. Details TBA in the new year!
We will working on producing some merch items such as coffee cups and hoodies for our community, we know everyone needs that bullish swag for trading the markets and we will make sure that holders have everything they needed to be a real bull!
At 100% of selling out our Season 2, we will build a on-chain DAO for holders to request, sign and determine the future of the project. Holders will be able to use their software or hardware wallets that hold a 'Runners' NFT to make important and key decisions within the project.
Some questions that are frequently asked in our discord
A non-fungible token is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. Our NFT is a digital character that is minted and sent to your address, you own this digital asset and it can be used within our ecosystem as explained below.
Minting will start on Friday 10th December, on therunners.io at 0.045 ETH per Interstellar Runner for new community members, or 0.025 ETH for holders of Season 1. It is important to note that there will be a limit on the max amount of mints, due to us being a community ran and DAO based project. Fair distribution is vital to our longterm success.
The reveal of your 'Bull Runner' will happen after minting has taken place, please leave some time for opensea to sync up.
A decentralized autonomous organization, sometimes called a decentralized autonomous corporation.
We want our project to be ran and maintained by the holders of the Bull Runners NFT's, we will be intergrating a ranking and rating system that allows all NFT holders to have some say in what happens to the project. The details still need to be finalized and we will share more details soon but likely the quantity or qualiy of bull runners in your collection will give you more voting power.
There are 5000 pieces that are mintable in our two seasons. We have reserved some of these in very small quantities for giveaways, community raffles and other fun activities. Our goal here is not quantity, it is quality and a fair distribution of tokens being fairly acquired, especially with this being a community governed project, in the near future. We have capped the max mint size to 20 per address, this should prevent greed.
Holders will be eligable for airdrops of future drops, collaborations and other special events. These drops might be limited to holders but details of holder snapshots and other community events will be made clear in advance. Our goal from the start is a fair token distribution.
