bones & bananas is Not associated with the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) project, although BAYC was the true inspiration behind bones & bananas! this is our homage to the BAYC team and community!
we built this project to perfectly compliment the BAYC Project. We aim to support the BAYC and BAKC floor prices by using 20% of all sales proceeds we make through the first year, towards buying apes and dogs at floor prices! Holders of bananas are automatically entered into future drawings to distribute the acquired apes and dogs either for free or at highly discounted prices - we aim to make BAYC nfts a little more accessible to the community this way. The artwork on bones & bananas equally compliments BAYC!
Every nft in the bones & bananas collection is a unique assembly of a set of carefully designed & handcrafted parts - all created in-house through painstaking iterations. Some of the most unique pieces are 100% hand drawn 1-of-1 nfts!
Every aspect of this project has been designed with a community-first approach. the free banana option is a perfect way for new community members or members with limited resources to become a part of this amazing eco-system! The bulk mint option caters to whales or established collectors and allows them to gain some rare nfts in this collection by minting in multiples. The random BAYC Ape/Dog giveaways in later phases of this project are a great value add to holders of bananas. There’s something for everyone, and we win ONLY if the community wins!
Anyone with an Ethereum wallet can claim ONE banana for FREE! and for established collectors that may want more than one, a bulk-minting option (up to 20 per transaction) for a fixed price of 0.04E per nft is also available!
There has never been a project with the combination of features that Bones & Bananas offers!
An NFT stands for “Non-fungible token” and is a fancy way of saying it’s a unique, one of a kind digital item that users can buy, own, and trade.
In order to buy an NFT, you need to have a crypto-wallet such as Metamask where you could store your crypto currencies and NFTs tokens. Each wallet comes with a unique address with which your NFTs and crypto-coins are associated. Learn more about Metamask and get the install link here - https://metamask.io/
Once you have your wallet installed, Bananas will be available for purchase on our website through the initial sale. At the time of purchase, a randomly selected Banana will be minted on the blockchain and delivered to your wallet and Opensea account. Once the initial sale is complete, you could still buy Bananas on the secondary market on Opensea. Make sure you only buy from a verified collection!
You can claim ONE free banana per Ethereum wallet. While there is no way we can restrict someone from creating multiple wallets to claim multiple free Bananas, we trust that most of you will respect our intent behind providing Bananas for free, which is to make Bananas accessible to all and to help broaden the community. So please be considerate! Banana Hugs!
Each additional Banana (after claiming your Free Banana) will cost you 0.04 ETH. You can mint up to 20 Bananas in a single transaction. In addition GAS fees will apply which are described below.
GAS is the price you pay in order to complete a transaction on the Ethereum blockchain. It is NOT something we set and none of it comes to us. GAS prices may vary frequently based on the network congestion at that point in time. Please note, you need to have some Ethereum in your wallet to pay for GAS even for the FREE bananas!
Your Banana(s) will appear in your Profile on Opensea (https://opensea.io/). Make sure you connect to Opensea with the same wallet address that you use to mint your Bananas with. If you don’t see the Banana in your Profile immediately, please check your Account Activity tab on Opensea to ensure your mint shows up there. In case you're wondering, your Banana images will be stored on the IPFS!
We plan to use 20% of all sales we make through the first year after selling out, to buy BAYC Apes/ BAKC Dogs at floor prices. All such Apes/Dogs that we acquire will be randomly distributed to Banana holders either for free or at heavily discounted prices based on how secondary sales of Bananas perform.
Secondary market commissions will be based on how many FREE primary sales we make! Lower the number of Free sales, lower the commissions. We’ve designed it this way so that we win ONLY when you win!
> 70% Primary sell for free - 7.5% secondary sales commissions (excludes Opensea commissions)
30-70% Primary sell for free - 5% secondary sales commissions (excludes Opensea commissions)
0-30% Primary sell for free - 3% secondary sales commissions (excludes Opensea commissions)
Ownership includes full creative & commercial rights. Use them as your profile pictures, print them on T-shirts, use them in your creatives, the possibilities are endless! So go Bananas!
Every Banana is unique and some are much more rare than the others. Banana holders could gain from the demand for Bananas on secondary markets. In addition Banana holders stand to win BAYC Apes/Dogs either for free or for heavily discounted prices. Banana holders also qualify for exclusive access, free drops, discounts, or first preferences on future NFT/Merchandise drops!
We plan on creating an eco-system of complimentary, layered NFTs that are all related to one another and to the BAYC/BAKC NFTs. We did away with publishing a roadmap as we like to under-promise but over-deliver!
Yes! We are retaining 2.5% of Bananas for various purposes including developer rewards, past/future giveaways, collaborations, partnerships and so on.
Please feel free to reach out to us either on Twitter (@bonesandbananas) or on Discord (https://discord.gg/8hpgq4QeK2). Rest assured, we will try to get back to you as soon as we humanly can!
