The Rarity Dawg Metamorphosis

Here we present the Rarity Dawg roadmap in 3 phases

Phase 1: Tricks

Why would a high brow digital art platform create a PFP project with a Frankensteinian aesthetic?

For fun! You don’t have to be a snooty poodle to appreciate fine art. Take the stick out! Play fetch! The Rarity Dawg project was a great way for us to try a few new tricks, to learn the in’s and out’s while developing innovative tools and tokens that deliver value back to collectors and the community.

Completed! ✅

Phase 2: Transformation

While we certainly enjoy letting loose with a bundle of toys in the yard, there is more to art than pics and gimmicks. We also enjoy the finer, more aspirational things in life, and endeavor to share with our friends the work of dedicated artists creating truly beautiful and thought-provoking pieces and collections.

Rarity Dawg collectors and enthusiasts stay tuned for upcoming releases that will entice you to stray into the world of fine art.

In Development 🔧

Phase 3: Transcendence

What is next in digital art? The space is evolving so quickly – from generative, algorithmic and AI powered art to emerging AR, VR and metaverse worlds.

Our mission is to discover, support and promote new creators and innovative collaborations. We strive to bring our growing community along on a journey through the most fascinating, thought-provoking and transcendent new creative experiences.

Planning 📝

Phase 1: Tricks

Why would a so-called high brow NFT art promoter like The Art Bank launch the ugliest NFT on Cardano? Here's why...

Outreach

Rarity Dawg is our method of reaching out to PFP collectors so that we could ultimately share with them what we value most - stunning NFT art!

Community

We are hoping to build a thriving art community, similar to the one on Tezos, that is made up of passionate NFT art enthusiasts, collectors and creators.

Story

Rarity Dawg is not just an NFT, he's also part of our animated narrative, Dawg and the fArt Banker. A series about Dawg’s journey from NFT recycler to art promoter awaits.

Rarity

Rarity Dawg is so named because it pays homage to the rarest traits of top collectibles. It's our way of poking fun at how arbitrary rarity actually is. Read our full blog post here.

Experimentation

Rarity Dawg was also about learning how to design, launch and promote an NFT collection. And not just any NFT, one that is purely utility and not hype-driven. More about utility here.

Guarantee

We have created the $Monet-Back Guarantee where you can recycle a dawg and get 95% of the value back. Through Rarity Dawg we have shown its use in floor price preservation.

Paying Homage To Rarity

The Rarity Dawg initiative is also meant to showcase the arbitrary nature of rarity by pushing the phenomenon to its logical end. We achieve this by developing a collection that is only compiled of rare traits from all the pioneering NFT collections on Cardano.

We know they’re rare because they’re all traits deemed rare by other blue chip projects. All the NFTs are therefore ‘rare.’ And the ones we determined to be especially rare (eenie, meenie, miney, moe), are rare, rare, rare. Say that 3 times fast.

But let’s be clear, although Rarity Dawg might embody the ugly essence of most PFP projects, it also strives to be very different. How you ask? By layering in utility from day one.

We setup our stake pool and built our recycler and auction bot before and during the mint so that utility was not a talked-about far-in-the-distance milestone on the roadmap, but rather a real and functional service that was baked in. Something that holders could tap into and benefit from immediately.
