Dinodawg Kingdom is a collection of 3,500 unique, cheeky critters, designed by a team of experienced professionals led by Oscar winning VFX artist Adam Dewhirst.
No two citizens of Dinodawg Kingdom are the same physically, nor in temperament! Owning a citizen grants you access to the Kingdom, including future drops.
There are 2 overarching aims with roadmap V2.0. Firstly everything we are doing will be focussing on ADDING VALUE TO OUR HOLDERS and continually building utility for OG collection. Over 2022 this is coming 3 main forms which lead/follow from each other. Secondly, our aim is to expand the Dinodawg universe, both in terms of publicity and brand reach. Expanding into key spaces- entertainment, merchandise, gaming and metaverse.
Q1-Q2 2022 - 3D Dinos
We have already started working on the “holders only” 3D Dinos. Adam and the team are so excited about this. With a 20 year career specialising in 3D VFX, this is really going to be an opportunity for Adam to showcase his skills to you all. As mentioned above, we are now building the 3D collection and will keep everyone updated as we approach release date. This time round we are going to show you more “behind the scenes” footage of the artwork progressing through:
I) 3D modelling
II) Trait design
IV) Lighting and materials/shaders
Whilst we are still deciding the exact rules by which 3D Dinos will be minted, we can confirm rarity of 3D NFTs will be RANDOMLY generated by DDK holders. Meaning if you currently hold, for example, even the most common DDK NFT, you have the SAME chance of minting a SUPERRARE 3D Dino as anyone else. The more OG NFTs you hold, the more 3D Dinos you can mint. To illustrate this, someone holding 10X floor price DDK NFT commons has given themselves a 10X chance of minting a superrare 3D dino, versus someone holding for example just 1x rare DDF NFT.
Accumulating common DDK NFTs can dramatically increase the likelihood of securing rares for the 3D collection.
The team will take a “snapshot” of DDK NFT holders before release date in order to qualify who is a holder and their allocation.
Q2-Q3 2022 - Dinodawg avatars in the metaverse
Whilst this phase is scheduled for Q2-Q3, we have already begun meeting with metaverse partners to discuss utility for 3D DDK avatars. Our goal is for holders to be able to use their own Dinodawg (and associated traits) in the metaverse. There will also be further utility for these avatars, we will update our community in the coming weeks on these details as it will be dependent on which metaverse partner (or partners) we choose. More on this in the coming weeks.
Q3-Q4 2022 - Further expansion of DDK universe, gaming and physical collectables
We have ambitious plans for building the Dinodawg P2E game. The game is planned to be open to the public, but will also offer significant benefits and advantages to Dinodawg OG holders. This will be set up so holders can play as their own unique Dinodawg OG.
Alongside this people in our community have shown great interest in physical collectables and merchandise. Our vision with these is firstly to ensure that anything we produce is in keeping with our values, meaning ethically and sustainably sourced; and secondly, that designs for this will only focus on actual Dinodawg designs/character found within the original collection. Meaning holders can have merchandise featuring their corresponding NFTs.
Entertainment - Dinodawg Kingdom lends itself perfectly to an animated show/short. We have not begun execution on this, but it a part of the project the team are especially passionate about. We will expand on this and update the community as our conceptualisation progresses.
We emphatically agree with outlooks such as Gary Vee’s that NFT utility can (and should) continually evolve in many different ways over time, meaning holders can also continually benefit as the Dinodawg ecosystem grows.
We can’t wait for you all to join us on this next exciting chapter. The journey has only just begun!
65 million years ago, their masters wiped out by the “Ginormous WHAT-IS-THAT Space Rock” a loyal group of reptilian “good boys” were left leaderless and bewildered. After much deliberating, and snacks, the dinodawgs decided to elect a leader, his name was Rover. Rover elected to lead the dinodawgs to safety in the deepest part of the darkest jungle. Soon after this, Rover appointed himself the first King Dinodawg, Rover I, and his friends became the first citizens of the Dinodawg Kingdom. It was here they would hide for millions of years, playing fetch and peeing on tropical trees, until their discovery by the Solana community in AD 2021.
The Dinodawg team are committed to bringing value to our citizens. Our experienced team are non-anonymous and have previously won awards for their work on Hollywood movies. All holders will be automatically whitelisted for future giveaways, drops and special features. Including "holder only" editions.
...lies in your hands. After millions of years of isolation, the dinodawgs have made contact with the outside world. The fate of their way of life is in the balance. Assemble your pack!
