What is a NFT?
So what’s all the fuss about? Well Non‑fungible tokens (NFTs) are a special type of token on the Ethereum network that are used to create verifiable digital scarcity. That means your specially-curated collectible CHONK cards are limited and digitally scarce. The value of each card will be determined by the holders of the cards. (Learn more)
The brief history of NFTs: Digital art auctions that leverage NFT technology are becoming more common. The first big record for the highest-valued NFT art auction sale was set in July, when “Picasso’s Bull” was purchased for over $55,000. After that, a digital artwork based on Bitcoin’s volatility, “Right Place & Right Time,” was sold for over $100,000 via Async Art. This record was subsequently broken on October 17th, 2020 when a five-piece NFT collection of Batman NFTs was sold for 540.86 eth, or about $202,000 at current exchange rates via Makersplace. The value of NFT lies in the verifiable digital scarcity.

What's the underlying value of $CHONK?
[Chonk Chan:] Well, that's a meowtastic question! $CHONK allows you to fish and catch specially curated NFT cards made by our talented artist which can be sold on marketplaces such as Opensea.io. The value of each card will be based off classic demand and supply. As you can expect, the rarity will determine how high or low the price of each card will go for.
As we expand our ecosystem to introduce more games, the utility and value of $CHONK will naturally follow. In the future, we'll be partnering up with manga publishers, established artists and comic illustrators to bring increased value to $CHONK holders.
Our first artist collaboration with the amazing Jorden Oliwa -- a beast of the animation world known for his work on Gorillaz, Lego, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and much more.
