Latest Cryptoon Goonz News
Cryptoon Goonz introduced BRED, a new rewards system for NFT holders, with the first claiming window starting on April 27.
- Claiming windows available on the 1st to 7th of each month, starting in May
- Earn 24 BRED daily for each Goon in the Portal
- BRED rewards built on the Polygon blockchain
- Use BRED to buy limited-edition art, experiences, and more
Cryptoon Goonz announced its new rewards system called BRED to offer exclusive perks and benefits to its community. Holders earn 24 BRED for each day their Cryptoon Goonz NFT is staked in the Cryptoon Goonz Portal.
The claiming windows for BRED will run from the 1st to the 7th of every month. Users need to claim their BRED during these designated windows or their earnings will be paused until the next month's window. Marketplace drops and restocks will coincide with these claim windows, providing more opportunities to obtain Goonz merch and benefits.
BRED rewards are built on the Polygon blockchain and the system automatically covering the transaction gas fees. There's no need for MATIC, network switching, or any complicated processes. Once claimed, BRED is securely stored in the user's wallet with complete ownership.
As part of the rewards system launch, users will no longer be able to sell their Gonnz NFTs when in the Portal. A holder must remove the NFT from the Portal in order to sell the NFT.
The Goonz ecosystem plans to grow and create more meaningful ways for users to interact with their collectibles. BRED can be used to buy limited-edition art, physical items, exclusive experiences, and much more, making it an exciting addition to the world of NFTs.
❗️Why It Matters
Goonz joins the growing trend of NFT projects that are committing to holders with unique loyalty programs that aren't dependent upon token liqudity and consistent focus on "price go up." The brand has already flexed its muscles as one of the most respected merchandisers in web3 and now it can continue to promote exclusivity that is only available to active participants of the community.
🎬 Take Action
BRED claiming will be available starting tomorrow, Apr. 27 and the first claim redemption window will be open until May 7.
The claiming process will take place on the Cryptoon Goonz claim site that will be announced with the opening of the claim window.

INSANE! Black snail beanie, the mug, and the coffee are all must cops!@jamie__london
Cryptoon Goonz seemingly teased an upcoming collection Monday morning, tweeting, "Always Tired Collection. Feb 24 - 12 PM EST." Today's announcement follows a brief coffee-themed teaser the project dropped last night.
❗ Why it Matters
The Goonz have already launched one extension project when they opened the Portal last May. Will "Always TIred" be another extension from the project, a new merch drop, or something completely different?
🔍 The Deets
- Right now, there is very little information available about "Always Tired." The team noted more info would be coming "soon."

Luxury brand Bugatti Group is creating its first NFT collection, with a mint pass that can be redeemed for physical luggage, the company announced Tuesday.
The luggage features Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs whose owners lent their NFT's rights to the collection, which includes five physical items: a crossbody bag, backpack, duffle bag, and luggage.
The mint is set for Nov. 18 starting at 10:30 a.m. ET to 1 p.m. ET for "OGs," 1:15 to 5 p.m. ET for the allow list, and 5:15 p.m. ET for the public mint. The NFT also earns the holder 55 percent off any of the Bugatti Group items "forever."
The mint price is the Nov. 18 ETH equivalent of the following USD prices:
- OG Mint Price: $155
- Allowlist: $165
- Public: $185
This may be the first mint for the Bugatti Group, but the company is building a new facility to start printing NFTs — even custom ones — on luggage and crossbody bags, according to the release.
Some of the people who lent their Apes to be printed on the luggage include Bored Ape Yacht Club Council member Jong Ong, Sneaky Cheetah Club founder @amandawoolleyy, and Hungry Wolves founder Adam Hollander.
There also appears to be a Cryptoon Goonz NFT printed on two of the pieces.
Cryptoon Goonz announced that it will be airdropping a Cryptoon Goonz-inspired art piece to select holders according to a recent tweet.
Users who submitted an entry to the project's #GoonzCarve and #GoonzCostume contests have been reached out to and will be receiving the airdrop.
