FAQs

Cats can’t talk. But they do love sushi-grade tuna and walking across keyboards.

  • MoonCat Rescue is a generative art collection. All NFTs in the collection feature images of cats generated by the blockchain
  • First On-Chain Generation: Each MoonCat’s appearance was derived from mining a hash, which determined its unique on-chain DNA. An open source ‘DNA parser,’ hashed in the original MoonCats Ethereum contract, displays the MoonCat.
  • Pioneer of Fair Minting: MoonCats were originally distributed via free rescue (minting). The process used a fun interface to search for a MoonCat. Under the hood, this was demonstrating a proof-of-work mechanism.
  • First Bonding Curve: A small number of Genesis MoonCats (<1%) were generated and priced with the first known Bonding Curve mechanism on the Ethereum network.
  • First Users’ Choice Minting On Ethereum (Collaborative Curation): There were over 4 billion potential editions of MoonCats but only 25,400 were rescued. Rescuers (minters) chose which MoonCat they would rescue. Users’ choice is the first instance of minter/designer collaboration in generative NFT creation. Results are neither fully random nor preselected by the designer.
  • First Naming System: Rescued MoonCats can be permanently named only once by their owner, and the name stays on-chain with the MoonCat forever.
  • Only five-year minted NFT project: MoonCats were minted from 2017 to 2020, then finished minting in 2021.

It’s no secret that cats love to sleep. MoonCats are no exception. They spend more than half their day being lazy. (We know a lot of humans who do that too). When they wake up, you can find them chowing own on space tuna, guzzling MoonCat Pop or searching for the most stellar scratching post in the metaverse.

You’ve got to be kitten us with this question. Of course a MoonCat will purr – just scratch them behind the ears (or get them a cool new accessory from the MoonCatBoutique).
