400 cats are up for grabs.

Following its release of four NFT magazine covers and announcement that it will accept cryptocurrency payments for subscriptions, TIME has revealed its most exciting crypto-related project yet in collaboration with Cool Cats.

Cool Cats is a wildly popular NFT collectible on the Ethereum blockchain consisting of 10,000 randomly generated cartoon cats. Each cat has a unique body, hat, face and outfit drawing from over 300,000 total options. Current weekly trading volumes range in the millions, and a single Cool Cat can fetch upwards of 200,000 USD.

TIME is working with Cool Cats to release 400 images across four different designs which will feature the quirky Cool Cats illustrations reading a TIMEmagazine. In a tweet, TIME president Keith Grossman revealed they chose to pursue this project because the “community exudes positivity and optimism,” “Cool Cats are family-friendly and connect cross-generationally” and “WLTCS (We Like The Cats)! Simple as that!”

Instead of selling or auctioning the digital collectibles, TIME and Cool Cats are staging a meme competition. The creators of the eight best memes related to this project will each receive one of the NFT pieces for their efforts. The remaining 392 NFTs will be distributed via raffle exclusively to Cool Cats owners who chose to participate in the meme competition.

The competition will begin on August 13 and close on August 20 at 12 p.m. EST. To enter, submit your meme to the Twitter competition thread by including the hashtag #CoolCatsTIME. If you are a Cool Cat owner, include the id of a Cat you hold by using the following format: CC1234. Head over to the Cool Cats Medium page for more information.

CryptoPunk #4220
The CryptoPunks are 10,000 uniquely generated characters. No two are exactly alike, and each one of them can be officially owned by a single person on the Ethereum blockchain. Originally, they could be claimed for free by anybody with an Ethereum wallet, but all 10,000 were quickly claimed. Now they must be purchased from someone via the marketplace that's also embedded in the blockchain.
David vs the Virus
"An ode to the year everything changed" - Frank Wilder The story of the underdog is a reoccurring theme throughout history, and perhaps the most famous example is that of David vs Goliath. A tale about perseverance, in which David takes on and defeats the giant warrior using only his smarts and a stone. Famously depicted by Michelangelo's David statue. Fast forward to the present day in 2020 and we as humanity are faced with our own Goliath. An uncontrollable pandemic spread around the globe. Now with the entire planet being affected by this we understand the gravity of the situation at hand, whether it be a virus we’re fighting or other forces at play, there is indeed an energy out to shift the balance of the Universe… Regardless of our differences, in this moment must unite as one. With diligence, trust and belief we as a whole can come together to triumph against "the enemy". Stay vigilant my friends. Original score created by the one and only Phoenix Wilder.
