Curious Addys' Trading Club

Curious Addys' Trading Club (CATC) is a game designed to make it fun and effortless to learn about NFTs and crypto. Think of it as Duolingo for crypto.

CATC is carefully designed to teach new users how to buy crypto on exchanges, setup up a wallet, interact with smart contracts and NFTs, become crypto trading pros, and so much more, all while having fun playing a game.

Now, if you have friends who are curious about NFTs and crypto but are confused and don't know where to start, you can point them right here.

Enter the Trading Club

Our first major game in the CATC ecosystem is a virtual trading club, where players can simulate buying and selling real cryptocurrencies and NFTs risk-free.

Train and showcase your trading skills, and earn real rewards in the form of NFT drops and more. Earn even more rewards by helping newcomers trade.

Over time, we'll introduce more games designed to teach people how to master crypto and NFT trading. All of these games will reward CATC NFT holders - especially our earliest adopters.

5,000

The first 5,000

Most people only get into crypto with the help of a friend. That's why we're starting with 5,000 crypto experts like you to help us build the community.

Your first edition CATC NFT, strictly limited to 5,000 and never to be released again, shows you were here first and played a major part in making crypto and NFTs go mainstream. We want to recognize you for that!

To thank you for your help, you'll earn rare NFTs as a reward for inviting new players. These NFTs will confer special status and benefits in the game, and can be equipped by your Curious Addy to upgrade your art.

Launch Details

  • 5,000 first edition Curious Addys NFTs, never to be released again.
  • Mint price TBD closer to launch, fully 100% refundable via a refund function in our smart contract for 100 days following initial sale - first project to offer this as proof we're here to stay for the long run
  • Strict limits on NFTs per wallet address to ensure fair distribution
  • To avoid gas wars, public launch will use a first-come first-serve reservation system. Once your NFT is reserved, you will have at least 4 hours to mint the NFT, so you can wait until gas is low to do so.

You know how it is - 10k drop, people going wild left and right, website crashing, massive gas wars, whales winning it all minting directly from the smart contract.

That's not for us. We're looking for long term holders who engage in the community, not flippers. For that reason, NFTs are strictly limited per wallet address, and a large portion of the first edition CATC NFTs will be reserved in a whitelist for our earliest adopters and most supportive and engaged members on Twitter and Discord.

We've also designed mechanisms to avoid gas wars, ensure the project can scale to millions of users without diluting the collectible status of our permanently limited 10k first edition NFTs, and even instituted a 100% refund policy in our smart contract - a first ever. We believe in our project for the long run, and we know you will, too.
