Juungle: Interview With The Creator Of $RAT NFTs (Shadowkite)
“Knowledge by itself is dry. But knowledge is watered by contemplation, even by simple reflection, and becomes a living seed that eventually flowers and bears surprisingly rich fruit.” ~ Wald Amberstone
Recently, we uncovered the creator behind of HUSBANDO NFTs, Moshimoshi2. He is a 12-year-old boy who inspired me a lot. He taught me that every dream will come true if we pursue upon it. Just like his artworks which represents himself. The future is bright for Moshimoshi2 and those who got to know him, including myself, are impressed. Since he didn’t have necessary device, his friend helped him mint his artwork. Despite not having the necessary device to mint his artworks himself, he dreamed, pursued and achieved that dream.
Even though he is stubborn, there is a sad story behind this cheeky boy. Lately, he lost his grandmother who took care of him since he was a little child. To lose a loved one is hard and more so when you’re still a child. Please keep him in your thoughts as he goes through this trying time.
Im Asahi (not real name) i have collection of waifu, rat, husbando, and ponies. I created husbando so the waifu have a partners im only 12 so i don't have much energy to draw everyday so don't expect that there's so many husbando.
It was inspired in Waifu NFTs, because its hard to find a male waifu and it's very expensive so i decide to made a partner for them. And also, the male waifu is very expensive and I can't afford it.
Next in line is Shadowkite, the creator of $RAT NFTs.
Tell us more about yourself and your NFT collection. (For the introduction to the readers).
Hello everyone! My name is Leander, alias; Shadowkite. I created the $RAT NFT which are spreading all over Juungle right now. I really hope people like the project and have fun buying/selling or sending them around.
Can you tell us what inspired you the most to start the project?
I have 3 pet rats actually, which at first inspired me to create drawings and paintings. When I gave them different props and backgrounds I thought, why not with an algorithm? And since I'm a programmer that wouldn't be too hard to do, so I did! So I drew all the different colors and attributes, then an algorithm to give every token an image based on the token ID. So, with images generated on-the-fly, I have absolutely no control over how rats turn out, only on the chances certain attributes show up.
What are your goals and what do you want to achieve in your project?
I wanted a very broad audience for $RAT. Although some rats aren't rare, or have a really weird combination of attributes, they are still fun to hold/buy/sell or send around. In my opinion, BCH and its NFT market could use a project like this to spread awareness further. BCHs value increased a lot in the last couple of days, but it's still a sleeping giant. So I believe this market is going sky-high one day, and a project like this fits right in. And if not, it was a huge learning experience for me! Let my next project be even bigger ;)
What is the story behind your collection?
So I wanted all rats to be cute and comical at the very least, props are a bonus. I also wanted them to be unique and personal, which is why I gave them names and a number. I think some of them really have a personality because of this. To broaden the audience for $RAT, I gave them some cool things like sunglasses or cute things like flowers to achieve that. It will give everyone the opportunity to jump into this market, and learn about BCH and NFT.
Why did you focus in your chosen category?
I guess I wanted to create something that's cute and fun to own for everyone. There are already a few StyleGAN projects but I felt something like this on a big scale was still missing.
Why did you choose Juungle.net? How is it different from other NFT Martketplaces.
It's built on top of BCH! It's new territory for everybody, which I really like to explore. Marketplaces on other blockchains are already very popular, and I think BCH really benefits from this.
What kind of method did you use for minting and creating NFTs?
Most parts I coded are PHP, but that's only for the webpage/faucet & images. Big credits to mainnet_pat for provided the wallet software, and the fountainhead services that I'm using in the background.
What do you think will be the future of Juungle.net?
I see a bright future, for Juungle but also for BCH. I'm a big believer.
Besides BCH, what other cryptocurrencies do you have in your portfolio?
Only a few dollars in ETH
What is your message to all the Juungle and Bitcoin Cash community?
Glad to be a part of this growing community! I hope I provided something fun & unique. See you all on Juungle!! :)
