Ducking in — NFD D-Day
The launch of our quacky NFDs has finally arrived. The NFDs are available on the official Duckstore website.
Price follows a bonding curve and starts from 1200zil. The curve is as flat as possible, to incentivise our supporters to participate in the initial launch event (more on that later).
Buckle in, we’ll cover any questions you may ask in this article.
How do I get an NFD?
Once you’ve connected your zilpay wallet on the platform, the NFD purchase interface will become visible. From this screen, you will be able to select the “Buy” button.
As the price of an NFD follows a bonding curve, in the event of two buys within the same block, only one transaction will pass through to mint.
NB: After purchase, please allow some time for our backend to mint you an NFD.
For LPs who participated in our reward scheme from the 26th of May to the 2nd of June, you will be able to burn the NFT voucher you received for an NFD.
If your wallet contains the LP voucher, you will be presented with a unique interface that allows you to burn the voucher for an NFD.
As part of the initial launch, buyers will receive a blank image with no identifiable metadata.
The NFD reveal will occur after one week, by which buyers will be able to view their NFDs and its attributes. During the reveal week, the story behind the NFDs will be revealed.
On the reveal day, we plan on hosting a discussion online where we discuss the next steps for the NFDs and reveal some of the other projects we have under feathers (under wrap, get it? I need to come up with new duck puns).
NFD Rarity Table
Each NFD has 5 attributes: Base, Beak, Eyes, Hat and Outfit.
There are 4 rarity classes: Common, Uncommon, Rare and UltraRare. Each individual asset is thus associated with a likelihood percentage.
The rarity tables will be released during the reveal event.
How can I manage my NFD?
During the 1-week initial launch period, the following features will be available to you: Rename, Transfer, Share on Twitter.
After the reveal, the Regenerate button will become accessible to NFD holders. $DUCK token holders will be able to regenerate their ducks to obtain a rarer one if they wish.
For renaming the duck, please refrain from using any profanity and/or slurs.
What do NFDs give you access to?
One of the first features that an NFD gives a holder access to is the “DuckNFT Pool Watcher” (why didn’t we call this pond watcher?). NFD holders will be able to receive notifications when liquidity is added to pools. Users are free to then review each notification and do their own research on the token.
A presale sniping bot is also under consideration and may be released based on necessity and demand.
Another benefit of holding an NFD is paying a heavily discounted rate for our NFTDeployer. Through the NFTDeployer, users are able to deploy their own NFT contracts. These NFTs can then minted and sent to zil addresses.
Other features will be revealed very soon.
NFTDeployer & Minter
The NFTDeployer allows users to deploy their own ZRC-1 NFT contracts. Users are able to specify the contract name and symbol e.g. Test1/Test. NFD holders pay a fraction of the cost compared to non-NFD holders.
Once the contract is deployed, users are able to mint their NFTs. To mint an NFT, there are 2 options.
Option 1: Use existing URI
This option allows users to use a pre-existing link to media. In this example, I have used a YouTube link as a test.
Option 2: Upload file to IPFS account
For this option, users are able to upload any files on their local drive onto IPFS. Users will need to specify the address to which they’d like to mint the NFT. Batch mints are possible by adding the addresses with the plus button. Once this is completed, the minted token will be displayed at the side of the screen.
Users are able to view their minted NFT contracts on the NFTDeployer page. They can also view and manage their NFT contracts on the NFTViewer page.
Users can transfer their NFTs to other addresses. NFTs can also be burned from their wallet.
Another feature is Import Contract. Users are able to import any ZRC NFT contracts and view them. Users will be able to view and manage NFTs from many Zilliqa projects like UFFSports and Mintable.
Keep an eye on our social media, as we will continue to share key bits of information along the way.
In the next article, we will explain how NFD buyers can auction their NFDs on Mintable.
