Listen to the story of Rare Folk - a P2E Game Theory NFT!

What is Rare Folk?

Rare Folk is a series of programmatically generated characters based on the ERC-721 standard and consists of 10,000 non-fungible tokens on the Ethereum blockchain.

They are a diverse and funky bunch of digital collectibles celebrating all hodlers, shitcoin traders, degen farmers and moonboys & moongirls of the Metaverse.

Folk Game is a p2e experience like no other, recreating the dynamics of power, greed and social hierarchies that we see in the real-world today.

Stake to earn $florin

After mint out we will introduce staking. All Rare Folks can be staked to earn the $florin token. This token will be used for a variety of things, but most importantly: it's the in-game currency for Folk Game (more information below).

Who are Rare Folk?

Rare Folk are a special breed, always curious and constantly on the lookout for what new technologies have in store for them. They are early adopters and big dreamers who believe they can make the world a better place. They celebrate builders and creators and want to see the Metaverse flourish. They are the first to grant you a helping hand, give feedback on your projects and support you in the ups and downs life in the Metaverse has to offer.

How it started...

For many years the Rare Folk wandered the shadowy Metaverse. Some mastered the dark magic of technical analysis, others became experts in finding small cap gems, some invested in mining equipment and a few are still recovering from losing their life savings on a meme coin.

Realizing they all were searching for the next NFT project to ape into, they decided to combine forces and settle down in a small corner of the Metaverse. Together they form a sparkling cocktail of industry knowledge, memes, investment expertise and life wisdom. A true force to be reckoned with in the Metaverse.

Phase 1 - Name the settlement

As the Rare Folk settle, they wonder what they should call their new home. After some discussion, they decided the name of the settlement (soon to be city) would be chosen by all Rare Folk holders.

Phase 2 - Create a City Registry

At first the settlement is small, but new Rare Folk are arriving each minute. When the small village grows to a mid-sized city, City ID cards are introduced. Rare Folk holders can now choose a name and bio for their Rare Folk. A registry of all minted Rare Folk will be created, making it easy to explore these rare city dwellers.

Phase 3 - Establish a City Treasury

As the community gets to know each other and the city grows, a City Treasury is established. 15% of mint profits will be added into the City Treasury. Afterwards, a % of future revenues will be reinvested in the City Treasury.

Rare Folk holders will be able to vote which community initiatives deserve funding. Once the museum opens in phase 4, the City Treasury will also be used to buy art.

Phase 4 - Open the museum

When the city is at full capacity, a museum will be opened within the settlement. After many pieces of art are collected via the City Treasury, Rare Folk holders will be able to bid or buy raffle tickets for the art pieces!

The journey ahead

When all 10,000 Rare Folk have found their place in the Metaverse, the real works begins of adding functionalities to the city. Although these will be determined by the Rare Folk community, here are a few thing we would love to create:

  • High Street - an Ecommerce store exclusive for Rare Folk holders.
  • City college - educational material on cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology by and for the Rare Folk community.
  • Folk Game - a p2e experience like no other, recreating the dynamics of power, greed and social hierarchies that we see in the real-world today.

FOLK GAME: A Game of Fortune & Famine.

Some offer additional utility like exclusive access to websites, merchandise or let you participate in events. Basically you can think of them as rare pieces of art (or Pokemon cards on steroids) which can also act as a “members” card.
