Million Dollar Rat ("MDR") is a groundbreaking and novel NFT concept that launched in April 2021 (a few months before the hype).
The project bridged the gap between collectibles and live entertainment by offering its holder the possibility to attain the lost treasures from the "art heist."
Through weekly streams on Twitch, the project entertained and provided its token holders the ability to attain blue chip NFTs ranging from CryptoPunks to Bored Apes and much more.
The project sold out all 3,310 tokens, and the storyline concluded in September 2021.
We have worked with over a dozen incredible artists worldwide to create the rats. The rats are hand-drawn and represented as digital collectibles (NFTs) using the ERC-721 token standard on Ethereum.
There are a total of 3,310 rats.
Million Dollar Rat operates on the Ethereum blockchain, and each NFT adheres to the ERC-721 token standard, which is the standard for representing non-fungible digital assets and is widely used for collectibles and digital art.
We are two friends with a massive passion for everything blockchain and art. Born in the 1980s, we have, with the help of incredible artists, been able to create characters that are nostalgic to us and draw inspiration from the world of crypto. For two guys who can barely draw a straight line on a piece of paper, the incredible effort of more than a dozen artists who have by hand painstakingly created the Sewer City rats are unparalleled.
Creating Million Dollar Rat has been an enormous undertaking, but we have never had this much fun working on a project.
