Tomorrow we’ll launch the first NFTs of our Velociraptor collection. All of the velociraptors will be unique. Our raptors will only be minted once, so if you purchase it, you will be the sole owner of that NFT.

We hand draw all of our raptors, there is no computer program generating them! This gives us full control on how we want them to look and allows us to make sure they’re really different from the other raptors we created. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them!

What are Velociraptors?

Velociraptors are dinosaurs that are most often just called raptors. They lived over 70 million years ago, in the Cretaceous Period. They’re quite famous for their movie appearance in Jurassic Park.

The size of velociraptors is roughly the same as of a turkey ๐Ÿฆƒ. Historians also claim that raptors probably had feathers, and would have looked like a strange bird, in contrast to how they’re displayed in movies.

In the picture above you can see how they Velociraptors could have looked like. Of course nothing of this is certain.

If you want to learn more about raptors, check the article on Wikipedia. They have some great information about the history of Velociraptors, about feather knobs they discovered, the different kind of raptors that existed…

Minting on Polygon (no Gas)

Our NFTs are minted on OpenSea. They’re on the Polygon blockchain, this means there won’t be any gas fee that needs to be paid when purchasing them.
