11/01/2023 Bonk Inu to Mint NFTs on Solana-Based Marketplace Magic Eden. But There's a Catch

A representative told CoinDesk that all BONK tokens used to mint the NFTs will be permanently burned.

Solana blockchain-based token Bonk Inu (BONK) will offer more than 15,000 non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles on Solana marketplace Magic Eden on Tuesday, a representative told CoinDesk.

The NFTs, which are digital tokens that represent ownership of a physical or virtual asset, may help further BONK’s usage on Solana's network. BONK hasattracted massive transaction volumeand hype in the past week.

The NFT collection was made in collaboration with prominent Solana-based NFT projects and is fashioned as “profile pictures” for holders to use on social-media networks such as Twitter. The collection brings artists from the Solana community, including John Le and the Omni creative studio – the team behind the popular Fracture and Gods Solana NFT projects.

A portion of the collection will be given to Gods holders for supporting the project and studio. More than 8,000 of the supply will be left to be minted for only wallets that hold BONK.

The BONK profile pictures will be purely art-based with no imminent plans forutility, representatives said. Pricing for the mint – a term that refers to the initial issuance of any NFT – will be set at $25 worth of BONK, and secondary trading will be transacted with solana(SOL) tokens.

Holders of the “Gods” NFT collection on Solana will be the first to be able to mint the Bonk collectibles. As such, all BONK raised will be burned and deleted from existence. Half of the royalties generated from sales following the launch will also be used to buy and burn BONK forever.

Future governance for the Bonk Inu project will remain with the Solana-based BONK token, not the NFT, meaning NFT holders don't get voting rights for the future of the Bonk Inu as of Tuesday.

"The governance of the bonk inu token remains SOLELY with the SPL token, and the BONKz collection has no impact or association with the token," Omni told CoinDesk in a tweet.

Bonk, a Shiba Inu-themed token that was issued on Dec. 25, returned as much as 3,220% to traders in the past week before profit-taking saw the price fall nearly 70% from its lifetime peak. The token was airdropped to Solana NFT communities and creators, which led to quick hype and high trading volumes for the Bonk project.

Bonk tokens saw steady adoption in the Solana ecosystem withseveralSolana projects having alreadyintegrated Bonk tokensfor buying and selling listed NFTs, and someintroduced “burn” mechanismsfor NFT-based events.

Who will be the most Meowfool of the Meowfoolest?! 6 HaCKittieZ are fighting for the crown of madness! It is time for crowns to change their history: people, this is the crown of insanity we are talking about. So tell us, who is insaner than the insanest of collectors? Only the artists - the creators - would know, while crowning the one who is brave enough to play with the craziest possibilities of Async programmable art, on these 6 HaCKittieZ. Welcome to the feast of fools. HaCKittieZ is a collaboration of Hackatao, CryptoKitties and Async. The 6 KittieZ are a reinterpretation by Hackatao of the CryptoKitties’ classic elements, following their own style and getting inspiration from their own art pieces.
The term “Fuku” refers to fortune or good luck. “Shiva” refers to the Hindu deity who represents strongly polar qualities, both severe and delicate. On a beach inspired by adventures on Phi Phi island in Thailand, three youths cavort. Two are representational figures and the third is psychologically rendered. A dynamic relationship ensues between the triad; a reciprocity of active and passive states. The boy on the right engages in maneuvers of evasion, defense, and is dressed in a speedo which reiterates the colors and symbolism of the caution tape on the left and upper right frame of the composition. In concurrent reaction the psychedelic figure shoots out a rocket powered paper airplane. The nude boy seated in the froth and sand approaches in passive repose, and is met with active attention but equal physical reserve by the psychedelic being. Perhaps the most naked figure is also the least representational. Looming large, dynamic, and active, it engages its companions playfully. Various symbols interject into the otherwise naturalistic scene, most notably a beach ball and two contaminated barrels nested in the sand. The upright barrel reads “FukuShima” in Kanji. The barrel laying down reads “Dharma”. To the left the scene is bounded by caution tape, reiterating the danger of the nuclear waste while also hosting alien archetypes, whose presence, as is the nature of these entities, runs up and just behind the consciousness of the psychedelic figure’s eggshell-like skull.
