About the Wassies
What is a Wassie?
Wassies are the result of a terrible radioactive incident. Not much is known about them, only that they seem to keep multiplying and appear to live for a maximum of 14 days. That is, if they somehow manage to make it to 14 days given their tendency to die in horrific, unusual or just plain silly ways. Although it is said that when a Wassie dies - an exact genetic replica spawns with the memory of its predecessor…
Research on the Wassies is underway. Initial findings are that Wassies are pest-like creatures that imbue all nearby sentient beings with an inexplicable urge to destroy them. Their relationship with fridges and couches are an ongoing area of study but leading Wassie scientists have observed that Wassie lifespans are positively correlated with the presence of these household objects.
Left to their own devices (in a controlled environment), Wassies have been observed engaging in activities such as playing cards and building their own primitive societies. But absent from all these societies are a certain breed of albino Wassies which seem stronger, faster and smarter than the average Wassie… but even less is known about this strain apart from their genetic superiority and their apparent bloodlust for the lesser members of their species.
ByWassie NFTs are 12345 generative NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain based on artwork from tukinowagamo - the original Wassie artist which created the lovable pests that have captured the imagination of first the crypto twitter community and now the web3 world.
9000 of the NFTs have been minted following an auction in September 2021. 3000 of the remaining NFTs have been reserved to the community treasury which will be used by the community to reward and incentivize participants in the Wassie ecosystem.
The ByWassies project is building a true foundation for the wonderful Wassie community to thrive and grow, by supporting community grants, organising events, and empowering Wassies to thrive.
