Nessie: The Metaverse Pet
IOC NFT Opportunity Disclosed — how to get involved early as a backer.
10,000 unique NFTs on the Ethereum Blockchain
What is it? A 32x32 pixel Nessie — Loch Ness Monster. This new Nessie NFT is ‘cuter’ with improved framing from what has been available on the market to date. Also this Nessie will sport retrofitted punk attributes (i.e Pipe, Top Hat, Pigtails, etc…)
Punk attributes are fun and instantly recognizable pixel art that can attract NFT collectors to the new projects. They are also a visual representation of the counterculture and disruption that has been shaking up the art and web2.0 worlds. This combined with the friendly and collectible look of the Nessie has the potential to be a successful collection.
The Nessie art and retrofitted Punk attributes are already completed in Aseprite and have been exported to an organized library ready to be run through our Python script to generate random Nessie NFTs.
Nessies: The Metaverse Pet NFTs will be minted through a project IO webpage as an ERC-721. The project webpage will include social links to Nessie social channels, information about the Nessies project, branded art, roadmap, and a single utility. Utility will be based around a simple beloved game.
Nessies will be randomly and procedurally generated at the exact moment a user mints a Nessie and the TokenID is created (i.e. tokenID 3245 could be a zombie nessie with a vape). This method is designed to be the most fair form of minting to prevent people from sniping what a community might consider a “rare.” At the time of mint a “type” / color is selected (White, Dark, Zombie, Ape, Alien, Loch Ness Green) followed by adding random attributes (hair, glasses, blemishes, mouth accessories, etc…)
ChatPunks - Business Development, Producer, Designer / Engineer. Responsible for getting projects off the ground through fundraising and talent acquisition to build teams of skilled individuals for project needs.
MetaYak - Full Stack Engineer. Solidity Dev. Responsible for building end-to-end web based platforms.
ChatPunks and Metayak currently employ devs (full stack, backend / CMS, iOS engineers) along with creative designers, artists, UI / UX designers, and project managers. If Nessie’s project is very successful, we would be able to scale the team as needed. However, currently this should be viewed as an “after-hours” project that only ChatPunks and MetaYak will be responsible for.
Opportunity to be an Early Backer
For the next two weeks (until Feb14th) we will be offering a single round for anyone who would like to become involved in Nessie: The MetaVerse Pet as a “.io Contributor” (herein referred to as IOC) with the opportunity for payout.
MetaYak has written a unique and useful Solidity smart contract withdrawal function. This embeds ETH wallet addresses into the Smart Contract that will automatically receive a payout when the withdrawal function is run. For example there could be the Dev wallet address and 10 IOC wallet addresses that will receive payouts from the contract address. This prevents the reliance of a single user (wallet address) to issue payouts to other people involved in the project which can be time consuming and also risky if that person disappears.
There will be only twenty-five IOC NFTs. The wallet address that holds the IOC will be the wallet address that is input into the smart contract on a specific date and can expect payouts as the Nessie: The Metaverse Pets NFTs sell..
The IOC NFT will be an image file that contains text that documents your position as an IOC and this is how we tell what wallet address to put into the smart contracts for payouts. The IOC NFT is not a collectible, nor is it art.
IMPORTANT: Purchasing of the IOC NFT on the secondary market will hold no value if purchased after the wallet addresses are added to the smart contract, which is the date we actually input the wallet address into the smart contract. Once the wallet addresses are input into the smart contract, they will be permanent. We recommend only buying the IOC NFT directly from Nessie_IOC_NFT — 0x3da8c8a98d58efbaffad493ca85712a095dd0c89.
To secure a position, you may purchase an IOC NFT only here: https://opensea.io/collection/nessieioc

ChatPunks and MetaYak will be responsible for the following list:
- Project IO webpage with branded artwork
- Nessies Pixel Art (32x32 pixel)
- Ability to mint ERC-721 ‘Nessie: the Metaverse Pet’ on Project IO page. This is the only place to mint a Nessie: The MetaVerse Pet
- Rolling script that creates Nessie at time of mint
- Management of all NFT attributes and image data on Google Cloud Server
- Management of .json files for NFT Metadata (important for NFT “properties”)
- Connect contract address to Opensea as a collection (for secondary marketplace)
- Opensea Feature Image, Banner, and Project Description
- A computer dedicated to our discord bot for server invites for 3 weeks to help boost numbers by spamming 60+ NFT shill channels.
- Following 5,000 NFTs being sold, we will create a simple web app for the Metaverse Pet. This will be marketed on the website as the NFT utility. Details will be divulged.
- Accessible to the community for “next-steps” through discord and/or email.
- Current target Nessie mint price - .08 ETH.
We don’t recommend it, but we are willing to create a new Discord. We’ll leave this up to Frieza Yelling. If we create a new discord it will look like the ChatPunks discord found here: https://discord.gg/pndT3pUYX7. It will include the Carl-bot for verification and Collab.Land for NFT verification. We will invite Frieza Yelling to be the mod and leave it up to the community to bring on mods as they see fit.
Further assistance and engagement beyond what is detailed in the above list will be solely at our discretion. We cannot commit ourselves to more than the above unless there is a significant financial incentive to do so.
We strongly recommend this project remain simple with a single utility. Should the project wind up being successful, at that time it would be appropriate to consider launching new features. We are focused on delivering an MVP without any feature creep.
Moving Forward / Greenlight project
At the sale of just ten IOC NFTs the Nessie: The Metaverse Pet NFT project will be greenlit. This will be 5ETH total.
In the event that 10 IOC NFTs are not sold by Feb 14th, we will return ETH (in full) back to the wallet address that purchased an IOC NFT. This will conclude our entire involvement at this time.
While the return potentially could be very high, we wouldn't recommend purchasing an IOC NFT unless you have VERY passive money. This IOC structure created by ChatPunks is intended reserve your wallet’s spot in the smart contract for payouts during a withdrawal function. We think the IOC NFT creates a fair and unique way to bring on people who want to share in the upside of an NFT project that they believe in.
We warn everyone to enter NFT projects at your own risk and to do your own research. We make no guarantees that you will profit from this.
