Founder interview with George from Jungle Freaks

Hey guys and thank you for having me on. As far as I can remember I’ve been a creative kid. Always loved to draw, loved graphic design and loved coming up with stories back by cool art. I’ve been involved with crypto since 2016. Dabbled with ETH, BTC, LTC, and some other altcoins.

During the summer of 2021 I was introduced to NFTs and discovered BAYC. Although I did not pull the trigger I did become very interested, almost obsessed with the space. In August of 2021 I came up with the idea for Jungle Freaks and we were off to the races.

The hours were long, the DMs sent to just about every big name in the space were endless. By early October we were ready to go and we ultimately launched on October 13th and were lucky enough to sell out fairly quickly.

Fast forward to now and we have one of the strongest communities in the space and very exciting roadmap for holders. We couldn’t be more excited for the future.

I love the idea of decentalization and the ability for really anyone with a computer/phone and internet to have access to it.

Web3 has given opportunity to so many individuals and i feel like we’re just getting started.

The future is extremely bright for the future so in the next 5–10 years I think the industry will be much more widely accepted and a part of everyday life.

I had the idea to start Jungle Freaks back in mid-August 2021. I was watching so many projects with not so good art, a mediocre roadmap and a non doxxed team which lead to me witnessing tons of rug pulls.

I knew we could bring something to the table much different with 100% hand drawn art that starts with a pencil and paper. You can feel the authenticity with our art which our community loves.

During the summer of 2021 I was intoruced to NFTs and discovered BAYC. Although I did not pull the trigger I did become very interested, almost obsessed with the space. In August of 2021 I came up with the idea for Jungle Freaks and we were off to the races.

I felt there was definitely a void in the market for good art with a project that had a rock solid roadmap.

I’d say the one of biggest challenges has been scaling at the pace everyone expects you to. Obviously building takes time and whether you’re trying to roll out a game or a new mint or a new marketplace, these things take time.

Finding a balance between pushing as fast as we can and delivering quality products and services has been what we’ve been focusing on.

I think my greatest achievement thus far is building such an incredible community around and within the project. The individuals holding inside the JF ecosystem are some of the most creative and intelligent individuals in the space who are always adding value and suggestions to how we can make this project even better.

Over the next 1–2 years we will be entering various metaverses as well as continuing to build and really put the decision making back into the holders hands.

We will be rolling out a DAO shortly after our Gen 2 // Fallout Freaks drop on May 25th which we are super excited about.
