Who are we?
A couple of designers in and curious about the future of the NFT space. We’re also the creators of 24px Rocks.
Are these real rocks?
What do you mean, “real”? :) Okay. Well, you can’t throw them or skip them. But they exist and are verifiable in the blockchain. Punk Rocks are 24x24px variants on the original Ether Rock project but not part of that collection.
A non-fungible token is the ultimate signifier, at once a decentralized currency, direct sale from artist to patron, proof of relationship, certificate of authenticity, property right in blockchain, status signal, piece of code, image, speculative edge in a volatile buy-sell market, and last but not least saleable news-byte.
It is also, according to 18-year-old crypto-artist Victor Langlois, a fortuna-governed relationship to success. What signifies wealth, status, and class more effectively than an infinitely reproducible, replaceable object, simultaneously and anonymously verifiably unique?
PunkRcks were conceived in this liminal fissure between art and trash, fame and obscurity, freedom and exploitation, wealth and poverty, winner-losers and loser-winners, culture and barbarity.

How did the sale go?
We sold our initial 24px Rocks series using a bonding curve pricing structure similar to the one pioneered by the OG Ether Rock project. 24px Rocks started selling at 0.03 eth and sold out at 0.1 eth. In the first 30 hours we sold 84 of 100 24px Rocks. Rck ID #87 is reserved for Justin Sun. The remaining 15 have been set aside for use in building the community.
Devs? Roadmap? Wen moon?
We and our dev friends have some ideas, but the future of Punk Rocks is entirely up to the shifting NFT space and the NFT community.
Do you like cats?
Why, yes. We do like cats.
