Day 6 – CryptoFerrets | Proton May #BetterNFTs

Welcome to the rundown on another project in this month’s campaign, Proton May #BetterNFTs. 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, CryptoFerrets!


Meet The Creators – CryptoFerrets

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

Coming from an artistic family, I was encouraged to draw from a young age. I drew comic book characters for many years. In my 20s, I stopped drawing so much so I could focus on my computer science studies, and today I am Full-Stack Developer.


How were you introduced to NFTs?

In January 2022 I came across an old friend who was an artist from my hometown, I told him we should start an NFT project, the community will love it.

“Umm…What’s an NFT? What community” He asked.

One thing led to another. Ideas were chewed. Brains were stormed. An NFT was born.


Why did you choose the Proton blockchain to host your collection?

Smart Contracts / DeFi
Human Readable @name wallet addresses
Ultra Fast Transactions – 4000TPS
Swap, stake and farming
NFT marketplace
Build for merchant, fintech and banking.


Tell us about your collection and the inspiration.

The proton community has been very helpful to us, we got the support we needed, advices from artists to define the project infrastructure(reward, rarity systems, etc.). We are grateful to the best crytpo community -Proton-on the twitter space !That’s how CryptoFerrets was created, a unique NFT collection an ideology represented as a NFT.
All of the human beings have idols, heroes and some sort of character they always dreamt of. Mia Hollow said: “Give me a character with adventure in his bones and fire in his gut, to see throughmy disguise.” CryptoFerret is that character and is what you could be.


What benefits do your NFT holders have?

As for the reward system, there are a CryptoFerrets wallet where we will deposit 10% of the royalties from primary CryptoFerrets sales.That 10% will be split between all the CryptoFerrets holders once every three months in a points program,there’s also an upcoming NFT airdrop (young ferret) for every cryptoFerret holder in the Q3 of 2022.


What’s next for your project?

Future development fund will be assigned to the expansion and growth of the project down new avenues, such as a possible metaverse integration for CryptoFerrets.
