Cool Cats Go 3D
Logan Hitchcock

Cool Cats has partnered with Hologram Labs to provide 3D avatars to all Cool Cats and Cool Pets NFT holders, according to a tweet from the project. 

❗Why It Matters

While flat, 2D images are suitable for profile pictures, users need interoperable, 3D avatars in a world that is becoming increasingly friendly to AR and metaverses. The partnership with Hologram Labs will allow committed Cool Cats community members to use show off their Cats in more settings than one.

A Purr-fect System for Rating Cool Cats
Julian Son

Cool Cats introduced a new scoring and rewards system called Cool Score today in a tweet announcement.

❗Why It Matters

Cool Score is a new system being implemented to reward loyal and active members of the Cool Cats community. The Cool Score system adds gamification mechanics that will govern access to future collection drops, IRL events, VIP opportunities, and other offerings.

🧐 Wait, What?

The score will be calculated based on factors such as:

  • How long you've held your Cool Cats NFTs
  • Whether your Cool Pets are fully evolved
  • What items you've hoarded from your adventures in Cooltopia
  • Community involvement 
  • and more...

🎬 Take Action

Cool Cats holders can access their Cool Score by connecting their wallet to coolcatsnft.com. After selecting a profile, a score will be displayed in the black box in the middle of the screen.

Part of the reason I chose Cool Cats as my forever identity is that Cool Cats is one of the few projects that has a real artist behind it, a real story, not just a brand created because NFTs were mooning. Might be dumb to others but to me it matters long term. Art/Story/CommunityMcGavin (@NFT_Shooter)

Blue Cat Travels to New Dimension
Lennster

Cool Cats' infamous Blue Cat and his partner Lil Chugs are apparently traveling to a new dimension, as seen in a newly-released teaser from the project.

🧐 Wait, What?

The video starts with Lil Chugs napping in bed while Blue Cat attempts to draw a face. Frustrated, Blue Cat crumbles up the paper and throws it, inadvertently hitting his friend, Lil Chugs.

Blue Cat's pencil wiggles, and magically lifts itself off the desk. It seemingly rips a hole in the space-time continuum. Bursts of color fly through the air, before Blue Cat and Lil Chugs are sucked into the void.

As they're sucked into the void, Blue Cat and Lil Chugs lose their color and detail, turning into mere outlines of their bodies. The video ends zoomed in on a mysterious symbol. 

What It Means

It's currently unclear.

The Cool Cats' founders - Clon, Elu, Tom, and Lynqoid - all changed their Twitter pfps to the outline of Blue Cat and updated their bios with #whereisbluecat.

Additional information is expected in the coming days or weeks.

Cool Cats to Focus on Blue Cat, Gaming in 2023
Jason Bales

Cool Cats revealed a wealth of information about the NFT project's upcoming plans for 2023, including a renewed focus on Blue Cat and its gaming partnership with Animoca Brands, during a recent Town Hall event.

As the team continues to develop its IP, the main focus of the project will be on content and storytelling, particularly focused on Blue Cat, the collection's primary character. This move quells any expectation of the previously-announced Jo the Bird NFT drop happening soon. The Jo collection was supposed to release in Q4 2022, but that is no longer the case.

"We're going to start telling the story of Blue Cat. Blue Cat is super important," co-founder Lynqoid said. "We're going to have a massive focus on content and our storytelling next year."

"As one of the coolest brands in the web3 space, the content and stories are going to be good," he continued. "We want to put a heavy focus on everyone who holds a Cool Cat and anyone who is on this journey with us."

How exactly Cool Pets, the expansion collection for Cool Cats, works its way into 2023 plans is currently unknown.

"It all has to start with story," CEO Stephen Teglas said. "It all has to come back to what is the story and what is the context in which we're bringing [Jo and Paper Cats and Cool Pets] to life."

With the renewed focus on Blue Cat, content, and storytelling, the team plans to leverage its relationship with Animoca Brands to create a new game path focused on fun stories that avoid grinding for rewards.

CEO Stephen Teglas said the plan is to use "gaming as content distribution, not as a grind." He wants to see the gaming experience from "more of an enjoyment standpoint."

Gaming updates are expected in early 2023.

"We've been working on a couple of different game paths with [Animoca]," Teglas said. "We'll be announcing something after the first of the year. We have one project already up in the early development cycle. We have a longer-term one we're working on as well."

In 2023, Cool Cats also plans on having at least two IRL events at SXSW and NFT NYC. The primary focus will be on SXSW because the audience is less web3-oriented and prime for onboarding. 

Additionally, the team will put out its second comic for all holders of the first comic. It has parted ways with Toikido for toy distribution, too.

These announcements come following Evan "Elu" Luza's stripped-back role change to project advisor. The team indicated during the Town Hall that it has established runway financially for the next two to three years.

Cool Cats Co-Founder Steps Back into Advisory Role
Ghost

Evan Luza, co-founder of Cool Cats, announced he is stepping back into an advisory role on Monday in a Twitter thread

"Through the journey with the cats I’ve also realized I miss the ability to incubate and start my own projects, and scaling is a much different beast than launching a project," Luza said in the thread. 

The project brought on new CEO Stephen Teglas in September, focusing on accomplishing "Cool Cats' mission to become the largest global NFT brand and a robust media and content company."

The floor price currently sits at 1.99 ETH, up 5% over the last seven days.
