The Cool Cats NFT project just announced their partnership with The SandBox! Through a tweet, they revealed to their 200,000+ followers that they are working on bringing Cool Cats to the Metaverse platform The Sandbox.
What do we know about Cool Cats x The Sandbox?
Cool Cats has been teasing 3D elements with pixels for the past few weeks. Yesterday they confirmed their community’s speculation.
The announcement post said: “You guessed it! We’ve concluded discussions with @TheSandboxGame to get your Cool Cats into their Metaverse early in Q4. Stay tuned for all the fun opportunities this integration will bring to our owners!”
At the time of writing, there are only limited details of the partnership. We can expect to see the 3D Cool Cats avatars as early as October 2022. But surely the NFT project will release more information about their collaboration with The Sandbox over time.
Additionally, most of the community responded positively to the announcement. However, some would like some revisions of the 3D Cool Cats avatar based on the teaser poster as they imagined it to be squistier and cuter.
Twitter user @onenftboi responded to the post, saying: “Can they be shorter and thicker? Never thought my cats were 6ft tall guys.”
Cool Cats: A Brief History of the NFT Project
Cool Cats are a collection of programmatically randomly generated NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. The 1st generation consists of 9,999 randomly selected cats from over 300,000 total options. Each NFT has a variety of outfits, bodies, faces, and colors.
The NFT project has continuously expanded its ecosystem since its launch on July 1, 2021. It has built a blue chip NFT reputation and is almost on par with the largest NFT collections such as Bored Ape Yacht Club.
In addition, the NFT project is also one of the favorites of celebrities. Major holders include Steve Aoki, Mike Tyson, and Reese Witherspoon.
Aside from its primary collection, it has also released many secondary collections. This includes Cool Pets and their Halloween NFTs. In addition, it has also released Cooltopia, a gamified ecosystem based on interactivity and utility.
Cool Cats also has several collaborations including Time Magazine and a merchandising partnership with Toikido.
Two months ago, Chris Hassett stepped down as CEO and the team behind Cool Cats is working with a top recruitment firm to find the next world-class CEO for the project.
Finally, Cool Cats just recently hired their new Community Vice President, Sian Morson, who is one of the most respected voices in the Web3 and NFT space.
Cool Cats have demonstrated their skills in the NFT space and this collaboration with The Sandbox will bring more value to their collections. In addition, it will bring more benefits to its holders. Aside from joining the largest Metaverse platform, we can’t wait to see what the NFT project has in store in the future.
