Cool Cats revealed Journey 9, an adventure in Sapphire Town, alongside updates to the Cool Score system.

The Deets

  • Marshmallow Mountains: Historically destructive for Sapphire Town
  • Journey 9: The latest immersive event from Cool Cats
  • Cool Score Update: Significant changes introduced, including Shadow Wolf Points and NFT Achievements

The Bulk

Journey 9 isn't the only major development Cool Cats is introducing. Significant updates to the Cool Score system have been announced, promising a more dynamic and balanced experience for the Cool Cats community.

Among the updates, Shadow Wolf Points have been introduced, contributing 25 points to a holder's Cool Score, subject to a 5% diminishing return for each subsequent Shadow Wolf. This strategic element is designed to make earning points both challenging and rewarding.

The outdated "Participation Scores" have been replaced by "NFT Achievements," recognizing holders of Gold/Silver Season Achievement NFTs, Aurorium, and Umbrium NFTs. This change reflects active participation in Journeys more accurately.

Further changes include adjustments to Cool Pets' contribution to Cool Scores, the removal of the Final Evolution Stage Bonus for Cool Pets, a decrease in the maximum impact from quests, and changes to Cool Cats Football Club (CCFC) scores.

🎤 Founder Feedback


I am proud of the foundation that the world building team created and look forward to what Cool Cats does next. I remain on the board and have an interest in Cool Cats, which in turn means I will continue to advise and help where I can.Lynqnoid

❗️Why It Matters

Lynq's departure from Cool Cats means that two members of the founding team have now stepped away from the project to focus on their own projects and experiments. It's ironic timing as the project just launched the Shadow Wolves and recently announced a major partnership with Futureverse (which included a minority equity swap), signaling future moves and promise for the brand.

  • There will unique Journeys and exclusive items for Shadow Wolves
  • Free to mint by burning a Cool Cats Fracture 
  • Minting period: Apr. 20 through May 19

The Details

Shadow Wolves NFTs will be classified as 'Super Cool' members, a tier like Cool Pets NFTs. 

Shadow Wolves holders will have access to unique Journeys and exclusive items, allowing them to enjoy a diverse range of experiences. To mint a Shadow Wolf, users will need a Cool Cats Fracture and enough Ethereum to cover the gas fee.

The minting period for Shadow Wolves will last from April 20 to May 19. If users fail to burn their Fracture NFTs within this time frame, the Fracture NFTs will become useless.

❗️Why It Matters

The introduction of Shadow Wolves NFTs starts another chapter in the growing IP of the Cool Cats brand, which just swapped minority equity stakes with Futureverse. While Cool Cats bolsters strong IP, Futureverse will continue to utilize its technology infrastructure to offer ecosystem participants fun and engaging ways to participate with the brand, which has been a core focus for Cool Cats and its Journeys.
