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.

Cool Cats is launching a new NFT collection - Cool Cats FC (Football Club) - in collaboration with Animoca Brands and OneFootball Labs, according to a message in the project's Discord.
The newest collection, which drops on Thursday, Nov. 17, will feature 4,000 dynamic Cool Cats NFTs, each representing one of the 32 teams competing in the upcoming World Cup competition.
As the actual World Cup teams advance, the Cool Cats FC NFTs will dynamically change to match the progress of the teams.
For example, if a user mints a Germany Cool Cats FC NFT, and Germany moves beyond the Group Stage, their Cool Cats FC NFT will also "upgrade," indicating the progress of the underlying team.
Examples of the upgrades can be seen below. As the teams advance and the NFTs upgrade, holders of those teams will be eligible for exclusive prizes.
What Can You Win?
If your dynamic Cool Cat FC NFT advances, you may be eligible for a variety of prizes, including IRL events, game-worn memorabilia, and digital collectibles and NFTs.
Plus, five holders of the Cool Cats FC NFT that represents the winning World Cup team will receive the Grand Prize, a multi-day IRL experience that features a VIP match at AC Milan's stadium, roundtrip accommodations to Italy, and a meet and greet with the Cool Cats' team.
A full list of prizes can be found at ccfc.coolcatsnft.com.
The Cool Cats FC collection will mint to select allowlisted parties on Thursday, Nov. 17, and to the public on Friday, Nov. 18. However, no official mint time has been shared.
Both Cool Cats (1,000 allowlist spots) and Cool Pets (600 allowlist spots) holders will be automatically allowlisted, but the quantities reserved will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
An additional 300 allowlist spots will be given away through pre-mint giveaways run by the Cool Cats project.
Allowlisted parties will be able to mint for 0.069 ETH, while the public price will be 0.10 ETH.
For more information, visit the Cool Cats FC website or follow the new Cool Cats FC Twitter.
Holders of a Cool Cats and or Cool Pets NFT recently received an airdrop with one of the five winning Halloween contest posters according to a recent tweet from the team.
Cool Cats & Cool Pets holders, please find a free airdrop of 1 of our 5 winning Halloween movie posters delivered to your wallet. 🪂— Cool Cats (@coolcatsnft) November 2, 2022
Thank you again to everyone who participated. Enjoy! pic.twitter.com/QFkkpHtGBj
The poster should have been received via airdrop on the Polygon Network. So users may have to check their hidden folder for the NFT.
The floor price of the NFT is currently 0.009 ETH on OpenSea and currently has no secondary sales.
Cool Cats announced it would be holding a Halloween themed art contest in a recent tweet.
Users will have up until Oct. 29 to submit their piece with the winners slated to be drawn on Oct. 31.
Particpants must create their own scary movie poster, while the team did say the Cool Cats art style is not required to enter, it did say it suggests using elements from Cool Cats and Cooltopia.
To enter, participants must tweet their piece and tag the official Cool Cats Twitter account along with using the hashtag #coolcatshalloween2022.
The top five entries will receive a Cool Pets egg while the top five runner ups will receive a $50 gift card to the Cool Cats merchandise store.
Cooltopia, the gaming ecosystem for popular NFT project Cool Cats, is scheduled to undergo maintenance today at 11:30 a.m. ET, according to a Discord post by the team.
Cooltopia is expected to go live again at 12 p.m. ET.
This is the same time Cool Cats plans to go live on Twitter Spaces to discuss their recent partnership with Animoca Brands.
It is unclear if the two events are related.
Yesterday the Cool Cats announced a strategic partnership with Animoca Brands to tap into Animoca's deep gaming expertise.
Yet, despite the announcement, some web3 leaders are on opposite sides of the news.
While Mando sees potential upside with $MILK, Rug Radio founder and longtime Cool Cats holder and advocate, Farokh, doesn't presently see value in $MILK, or the Cool Cats' companion - Cool Pets.
He said in reply to Mando's tweet, "The only issue is $MILK has no value and Cool Pets don't either as far as I'm concerned...Would love to see what's next for MILK and pets."
The Cool Cats' $MILK token is up nearly 4 percent over the last 24 hours, and more than 35 percent in the last month according to CoinGecko, but the utility token for the Cooltopia gaming universe is down 99 percent from its all-time high price of $0.187 on Feb. 18.
A day after his tweet, Farokh accepted an offer of 5 ETH on Cool Cat #6278, registering a 10 ETH loss on the sale.
Nevertheless, the Rug Radio founder has remained adamant about his support of the Cool Cats project and still holds at least three Cool Cats NFTs and 18 Cool Pets NFTs at the time of writing.
On top of the Animoca partnership, the Cool Cats recently announced former Disney executive Stephen Teglas as CEO.
Cool Cats and Cool Pets owners will be airdropped NFTs to be used in the Habbo game, according to a tweet from the project Thursday.
The airdrop, which features furniture NFTs for Habbo's game on Immutable X, will take place Oct. 5 after an Oct. 3 (at 8 a.m.) snapshot. Holders must register their IMX wallet by then.
Habbo's Avatars collection has a 0.19 ETH floor.
The Cool Cats team has airdropped 100 Cool Comic NFTs to select Cool Pets holders this afternoon, according to an announcement from the team.
The move was in response to the difficulty of obtaining Cool Comic NFTs for Cool Pets holders, who were disadvantaged in the earning of $MILK, the project's native ecosystem token.
To start, the team collected a list of Ethereum addresses that held only one or two Cool Pets NFTs, but no original Cool Cats NFT. Then, the team layered in a handful of other weighted criteria that included Cooltopia activity, amount of Pets owned, quest completion, and more.
The airdrop winners and all Cool Comic NFT minters can expect to see their NFT revealed tomorrow.
The mint for Cool Comics by Cool Cats is now live according to a recent tweet.
Users who wish to mint the comic can proceed to the official mint site, connect their wallet, and use their $MILK.
To be eligible to mint the comic users had to hold 75,000 $MILK in their wallet as well as either a Cool Cats or Cool Pets NFT.
Cool Cats shared the minting details for its upcoming comic, Cool Comics, in a Discord announcement earlier this evening.
The comics will cost 75,000 $MILK and mint on September 21, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. ET with a supply of 2500 NFTs. Cool Comics will reveal a week later on September 28, 2022, at a currently unspecified time.
Cool Cats also let it be known that a video for the comics will be released alongside the reveal on Sept. 28 and announced the claiming window for the comics will open on Sept. 30.
