What's an NFT?

NFT stands for "non-fungible token" which means that it's a unique, digital item with blockchain-managed ownership that users can buy, own, and trade.

Many NFT's serve as digital art. But they can also offer additional benefits like exclusive access to websites, event tickets, game items, and ownership records for physical objects.

Think of it as a unique piece of art that can also work as a "members-only" card. SBB works like this, with one of its benefits as an entry-pass to the SBB Community.

What are SBB's?

SBB's, or Solana Big Brains, are a collection of algorithmically generated monkey characters minted as NFTs on the Solana blockchain. Each Sol Big Brain is unique and comes with different attributes varying in rarity. SBB's have different trait types, some rarer than others, and... there are rumors that you could eventually stake your monkeys for $WRINKLES–Is it true? 🤔

Why buy SBB's––Are they a good investment?

Some NFTs are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

While we can't guarantee SBBs will moon 🚀, we believe SBBs have a long life ahead of them as part of an ever-growing and evolving project.

The success of SBBs rely on many factors, like community and meme-worthiness. What we can promise is entrance to a community and passive yield from staking. And holders get to participate in events such as exclusive mints, raffles, airdrops (Dec. 2021), and community giveaways.

What's your mission?

Our team comes from an L1 background and recognizes those experiencing scarcity—as part of our mission to bank the unbanked, we'll donate a minimum of $100,000 USD from our proceeds towards causes that the community offers and votes on (e.g. ending child poverty, UBI platforms).

As refugees of war living in the US, we've felt the real-life pains of being unbanked and excluded from traditional financial services. We can see many of these problems being resolved by Decentralized Finance—from enabling folks to get car loans to get to work or helping them make the first down payment on a home. What excites us about DeFi is that it breaks down walls—it makes it so that anyone regardless of who they are—where they were born—can get access to financial tools.

The Solana Blockchain is at the forefront of offering DeFi at scale, in an affordable manner (transactions cost fractions of a penny). And we want to help onboard the next 100 million users into NFTs, DeFi, and the metaverse by helping empower both its builders and core users.

But Why Male Models SBBs?

1) They're ridiculously cute and we can't get enough of the monkey business!

2) You gain access to community without having to spend the equivalent of a 'down payment for a house' for these NFTs.

3) Holding an SBB grants you access to builderDAO, a community for devs, designers, meme-artists, and builders of all stripes to ideate projects that advance the adoption of the Solana ecosystem. By holding SBBs you'll have a voice in the community and help guide the direction of the project and development of the story. Already some great ideas have come from the community (like noobDAO – a space for folks new to crypto to learn, share knowledge, and get up to speed). Working together we can collectively grow and nourish the Solana ecosystem to onboard the next 100 million crypto users!

How do I NFT?

New to NFTs? No worries, here are some steps on what you need to do to get your SBB.

  1. Download the Phantom extension for the Chrome/Brave browser. This will let you make purchases with Solana and can be found in the extensions tab. Your NFT will be directly viewable in Phantom.
  2. You can get Solana through exchanges like FTX, Coinbase, Binance ( for international users). Here's an easy tutorial.
  3. Click on Connect at the top of the page and connect your wallet. Once connected, you will be able to purchase the NFTs in the mint section.
  4. Once you have made your purchase, your SBB NFTs will be viewable directly from your wallet!

What's on the roadmap?

  • Charitable Donations to Anti-Poverty and UBI initiatives.
  • $WRINKLES – the bigger your brain, the more $WRINKLES you get for staking your SBB! 21 million (SPL) tokens. 50% of royalties will be allocated towards $WRINKLES liquidity and 50% towards DAO treasury to support builders in SBB-based community projects.
  • Token-gated community. The Solana builder community deserves a place to ideate, collaborate, and push each other further. We've got a big project in the works to help SBB's refine their vision, and drive further collaborations among Solana builders and projects.
  • Giga-brains together, strong! Holding any SBB guarantees lifetime membership to SBB-based projects. Here's a sneak preview of our online writing (browser-based) forum. Our vision is to explore ideas in long-form to usher in greater long-term thinking, and help each other deepen our thoughts.
  • SBB GMI Workshop. We each bring unique stories and skills to the ecosystem. And there's plenty of alpha we can share to help each other "make it". We'll discuss this idea with our Discord community to see how to proceed.
  • SBB Gen 2. We'll collaborate with the community to determine the best way to implement airdrops.
  • SBB's story development and the SBB universe.
  • SBB Gallery.

Stop by our Twitter to have a voice on our roadmap.

Update: For now, Twitter will be our main soapbox. Discord's been experiencing rampant scams and tomfoolery (with clever social hacking + techniques like webhooks). We'd like some time to protect our community and figure out the best practices for Discord. Stay safe fam!
