This is a guest post from the Flunks team
This is Flunks, a new Vancouver-based Web3 brand building on Flow with the mission to bring the best of our communities together. We’re a unique blend of engineering, marketing and product talent. Individually we’ve gathered years of experience across Esports and Gaming, Sports & Entertainment, Digital Marketing, Finance, and IT.
We have been avid participants in the crypto and NFT space since 2017 and feel super excited to be building right where we ended up meeting each other - on Flow. CryptoKitties and NBA Topshot have given us amazing shared experiences amongst our team, and we’ve come full circle to deliver our communities the next best thing.
Flunks is a high school inspired generative NFT collection with 9,999 avatars. Each Flunk is uniquely generated using over 200 different visual traits. We understand the pain of navigating convoluted and ambiguous trait categories so we’ve kept it clean. There are five traits that visually separate each Flunk from one another.
Will your Flunk play ball with the other Jocks? Or bury themselves in the computer lab with the other Geeks? The clique category is derived from the other traits that your Flunk is minted with, a clique weight is applied to each trait. Upon creation, the weights are calculated and your Flunk falls into one of the following cliques: Jocks, Freaks, Preps and Geeks.
Represent your clique & partake in exclusive school clubs run by the Flunk community — spreading our branding to infinity and beyond.
The Flow ecosystem is critical in allowing for easy user onboarding and payments via credit cards - which is a key component of our plan to help further educate and excite the next generations of community builders. We believe we have great potential to service a mainstream audience as we work together with schools to show the real-world benefits of NFT communities.
Building on Flow is key as it also gives us the flexibility to introduce exciting metagames and innovative principles to our collection of products. The Flunks campus will continue to grow past Flunks, Backpacks and Pins - and these avatars will be the all-access pass into our expanding universe.
