Day 15 – TeddyPunks | Proton May #BetterNFTs

We’re back with another project in this month’s Proton May #BetterNFTs campaign. As a reminder, our goal is to introduce the incredibly talented creators behind the projects you know and love to help you learn more about the Proton ecosystem.

As part of the campaign, we publish a ‘Meet The Creators’ interview everyday, alongside an NFT giveaway from that creator, so you can learn more about their project, the inspiration behind each series, what’s next for them, and why they chose Proton.

Don’t forget: Proton allows users to mint NFTs instantly and without paying gas fees. Intelligent smart contracts ensure that creators earn royalties on future sales of their NFTs, allowing a pathway for artists to continue to earn income from their creations. And because Proton Market has an open-source template, talented creators can customize their own storefront to create a truly unique experience for their communities.

Please meet the team from another community favorite project, TeddyPunks!

Meet The Creators – TeddyPunks

Tell us a little bit about yourself, and your background before getting into NFTs?

Before NFT’s I was making illustrations, mostly ink on paper drawings and posted them in Instagram but that was before I got into digital art. What got me into digital art was some friends of mine were into graphic designing for t-shirts and they wanted me to join them, then that was how I got into digital arts. I’m located in asia, mainly in Philippines.

 

How were you introduced to NFT’s?

I got aware of NFT’s when i got interested in crypto which hot and trending at this point in time.

 

Why did you choose Proton Blockchain to host your collection?

I choose proton simply because I learned about the free mints, when I discovered the NFT marketplace of proton I just had to take a shot.

 

Tell us about your collection and the inspiration?

TeddyPunks was inspired by hypebears & hapebeast, I loved the appeal of the hypebears heads and the street fashion from hapebeasts so I mixed the two things I loved and just added my own flair to it. To fully realize the teddypunks I also took inspiration from other media such as the image below. Teddypunks are imagined as human-like figures with teddybear heads, in real life they would look like mascots with human bodies.

 

What benefits do your NFT holders have? (Passive Income, DAO, Airdrops)

My collection offers profit sharing for holders or passive income on a monthly basis. Holders also get to enjoy free NFT giveaways via raffles, custom NFTs are also offered.

 

What’s next for your project?

As a solo artist I cant really promise big things to come for the project such as games, DAO, or whatever, but I will strive to provide value for my current holders and that is to continue making art, projects and building with the community. As I stated on the roadmap holders and supporters of my existing project will get special perks and benefits in the future and coming projects. My vision for the teddypunks is to make them metaverse ready assets in the future. as of now I lack the skills in 3D but I am learning the softwares needed to produce the product behind the scenes.

 

If you want to give a shoutout, now is your chance!

My shoutout goes to the amazing community in the proton blockchain for their solid support on the project, TeddyPunks would be nothing without the community and I can’t thank them enough.
