About the FRΞNLY FLYZ
Who Are the FRΞNLY FLYZ?
FRΞNLY FLYZ are 4,012 randomly generated NFTs buzzing around the Ethereum blockchain. The FRΞNLY FLYZ are on a mission to make the world a frenlier place - one wallet at a time.
Owning a FRΞNLY FLYZ NFT serves as a membership pass that grants access to exclusive perks such as future collections, expert alpha channels, IRL events, giveaways, games, voting rights, community vault, merchandise and more.
No two FRΞNLY FLYZ are alike, but they are all equally frenly and fly.
FLYZ live fast and die young! The Dying Supply Mechanism is an innovation by our smart contract to automatically decrease the unminted supply of the FLY Pass by 1,000 EVERY 6 HOURS. This was to value our hodlers and increase scarcity.
1 FLY Pass = 1 free airdrop of a FRΞNLY FLYZ NFT
The FLYDRop is yet another innovation we made to value our holders. Using the FLYDrop mechanic, we are able to airdrop FLYZ to FLY Pass holders on the ethereum network without spending exorbitant gas fees.
STAGE 1: EGG
The FLY Pass
Think of the FLY Pass as a VIP card that rewards early supporters of the project for the first collection and beyond.
We started the mint of 8,888 FLY Passes on February 5, 2021. We did an innovation where we did a simultaneous public and whitelist sale.
The public sale was a success and sold out at 2585/2585 for 0.04ETH each.
The remaining supply was reserved for OG (Original Gangswarm) and the FLY List. Both got a Mint 5 + Get 1 Free perk. Mint discounts were also provided for both.
OG 0.025ETH per pass
FLY List 0.03ETH per pass
Supply was guaranteed for OG and FLY List for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, the Dying Supply Mechanism activated and burned the supply by 1000 every 6 hours. The final supply is now 4012.
STAGE 2: LARVA
The FLY Pass guaranteed the holder with a free airdrop of one FRΞNLY FLYZ NFT. Our dev Zircodium made another innovative contract that executed the FLYDROP across all 4012 FLY Passes for only roughly 2ETH on February. This transaction would normally cost 20-30ETH. Since only 4012 FLY Passes were minted, only 4012 FLYZ exist. The FLY Passes were not burned as well. We also immediately set up rarity values for the FLYZ by coordinating with Rarity Sniper: https://raritysniper.com/frenly-flyz
We immediately opened a set of exclusive alpha channels in our Discord for FLYZ and FLY Pass holders. #-alpha-alerts for the latest round of information across the NFT space that everyone must be aware of, #-alpha-office for robust discussions with fellow holders, and #-alphabot-raffles for exciting whitelist opportunities for verified holders.
The project aims to be transparent with the community wallet by setting up a multi-signature Gnosis safe. The FLYZ have also acquired promising projects for community ownership, starting with our floor sweep of Thingdoms.
DIGITAL REAL ESTATE
We have our compound eyes surveying possibilities in the Web3 Space with the FLYZ. We purchased digital real estate to serve as the home of the swarm. We minted an Otherside property from Yuga Labs and bought two medium beachfront properties in the Entertainment District from NetVRk: Parcel 2711 and Parcel 2894
FLY Missions will be a recurring mini-adventure treasure hunt game for FLYZ and FLY PASS holders. Holders can form Swarm Squads and battle each other using the traits of their FLYZ NFTs. Rewards come in the form of Swarm Points. Swarm Squads can be assembled in the official website, while the results of the games are presented here on Discord. The FLY Missions are typically held when there is a majority demand from the Swarm.
STAGE 3. PUPA
The FRΞNLY FLYZ are on a mission to make Earth a better place. We initially planned to donate to a charitable contribution to an environmental advocacy group, focusing on climate, pollution and health issues. But because of recent events, we instead made a 2ETH donation to Nova Ukraine to assist with the relief efforts in Ukraine. We also had a 24-hour fundraiser donating 100% of our proceeds for the donation.
To reward the FLYZ Swarm for hodling, we developed SWARM POINTS, a currency that you can passively earn daily without having to stake or to spend unnecessary gas fees. Accumulate more SWARM POINTS by levelling up your role in Discord. Swarm Fren = 6 FLYZ Swarm Elite = 10 FLYZ Swarm Lord = 20 FLYZ Swarm Zeus = 50 FLYZ. Type /collect-income in #-flyzvegas-casino if you have a special role to get more Swarm Points
STAGE 4. ADULTHOOD
FLYZ VEGAS CASINO
The SWARM POINTS gave rise to FLYZ VEGAS, a Discord channel where FLYZ holders can earn more Swarm Points by testing their luck. Check it here flyzvegas-casino. Type !work daily to get bonus Swarm Points for visiting the Discord daily. Or play games in the casino for a chance to double those Swarm Points. Type !bj or !roulette. Never hesitate to ask for help FLYSHOP The ultimate benefit of multiplying your SWARM POINTS is to use them in the flyshop-items to buy NFTS and whitelist spots. Once in a while we have premium NFTs and we raffle it to the Swarm. You can buy raffle tickets using your SWARM POINTS. Ask for help on what commands to use in flyzvegas-casino
To generate more value for the Swarm, the Founding FLYZ are always scouting for opportunities to give whitelists to our holders. Spend time in the Discord because we usually offer them First Come First Serve. Or in #-alphabot-raffles. Or as Twitter giveaways.
The FRENLY FLYZ have developed a browser video game — a matchup of FLYZ and their rivals the Chameleons in the City. It’s called SWARMAGGEDON and the game has finished development. The team is still pursuing ways to maximize the impact of SWARMAGEDDON on the future of the project. The current bear market has led to a decline in participation of people in older projects such as the FRENLY FLYZ. New announcements usually end up as a whimper because of low participation. We are striving to change this by having a new infusion of passionate people in the Swarm.
The Mutant FrankenFLYZ are waiting in the wings for holders of FLYZ and FLY Passes. But as mentioned above, we are in a bear market, and time and again, it has proven that this climate destroys projects that mindlessly add to their supply without considering the market sentiment. The team is currently assessing the best way to bring the lost and disfigured brethren of the Swarm — the Mutant FrankenFLYZ— to the ecosystem in a positive way. Shall we burn the FLYZ and the FLY Passes to reduce our overall supply? Time will tell. As for now, the focus is in delivering consistent value to the Swarm by way of Swarm Points, FLYZ Vegas, FlyShop, Whitelists and SWARMAGGEDON. Talk to us in #-the-fly-trap.
