Logan Hitchcock

DeGods and y00ts announced major updates, including the closure of Points Parlor and the launch of innovative community initiatives like de[starter] and de[id].

The Deets

  • Discontinuation of Points Parlor for DeGods & y00ts due to community dissatisfaction and system issues
  • Assembling a dedicated team for BTC DeGods
  • Partnership with KrakenFX for de[Basel] events at Art Basel in Miami Beach

  • Enhancement of community connections through a Y Combinator-style directory and chat discovery engine
  • Emphasis on IRL connections with over 100 community events and the establishment of de[city] in major cities

The Bulk

The recent "Clarify" phase announcements from DeGods and y00ts mark a significant shift in strategy, focused on community empowerment and growth. The first major announcement was the discontinuation of the Points Parlor initiative, which addressed the community's dissatisfaction with its skewed distribution and RNG-based rewards.

Meanwhile, the team is doubling down on its community. It will start with the hiring of Presidents for y00ts and DeGods, who will work alongside Frank without a budget but with posting privileges. 

The launch of the [de]ToX App is a strategic move to curate and promote content from within the DeGods and y00ts communities, fostering a more connected ecosystem. Moreover, the introduction of de[starter] aims to lower barriers for utilizing NFT IP in business ventures, starting with merchandise.

Finally, the emphasis on IRL connections and the establishment of de[city] in major global hubs highlights the project's hope to connect community members in real-life.

The partnership with KrakenFX for de[Basel] promises a unique blend of art and crypto, with activities planned at a villa in Miami Beach. This initiative is a clear move towards integrating digital art in prestigious physical art events.

Last but not least, the project provided an update on the development of de[id], a comprehensive identity system, which showcases an innovative approach to integrating on-chain and off-chain activities and building and verifying a digital reputation.

DeGods are up 3.59% over the last 24 hours while y00ts are down 1.68%.

DeGods is hoping to rejuvenate and unify its communites with the latest "Comeback" announcement from Frank DeGods. In a nod to its origins, all DeGods were reset back to Season 1, a phase symbolizing their initial days—days marked by fun, camaraderie, and a genuine desire to prove their mettle.

Additionally in an attempt to unify the company's main two projects, users will have the opportunity to migrate their y00ts to the Ethereum blockchain for free sometime this week. This significant move aims to eliminate the distinction between the two and ensure y00ts and DeGods grow hand in hand moving forward. 

Lastly, Frank hinted at the launch of a new feature or product (currently unnamed) which will further address concerns and questions surrounding their entire ecosystem—from y00ts to $DUST.

DeGods Initiates 'The Comeback'
DeGods Revamps Points Parlor
Logan Hitchcock

DeGods is rolling out Points Parlor v1.1, which introduces a series of new features including new DUST reward tiers and a Parlor Strategy Simulator.

The Deets

  • The smallest $DUST reward is now 3.3, eliminating minor prizes.
  • Introducing the Parlor Strategy Simulator for risk-free strategy testing.
  • “???” Prizes revamped with new community brands and higher win rate.
  • Clarity around $DUST rewards and future utility within the game is coming soon.

The Bulk

In an effort to improve the gaming experience based on community feedback, Points Parlor is leveling up to version 1.1. 

Firstly, the update does away with minor $DUST prizes. The smallest available $DUST reward now sits at 3.3, with new tiers introduced at 5, 10, 33, 100, and 333. This change streamlines the reward system, increasing the value of $DUST won in the game by players. 

A highlight of this update is the Parlor Strategy Simulator. This allows players to test out game strategies without risking any points. The simulator uses mathematical projections, but assumes all DeGods are staked during the entire game.

The major prizes, labeled as “???” prizes in the game, have also received a significant revamp. Products from several community brands built with DeGods and y00ts IP have been added to the prize pool. Plus, the chance of landing one of these mysterious prizes has been bumped from 0.055% to 0.2%.

Lastly, the team acknowledges the community's demand for clearer information on DUST. Soon, players who win DUST will be able to utilize it within the game, setting the stage for a regulated DUST supply.

๐Ÿ“Š By the Numbers

$DUST is up nearly 5% in the last 24 hours, but down 63% in the last month to $0.78.

DeGods Opens Points Parlor
DeGods Initiates 'Downgrade' to Season III
Logan Hitchcock

DeGods introduced its Season III downgrade, unveiling a vibrant, nostalgic design palette for its users on Sunday. 

The Deets

  • New Design Approach: The downgrade adopts a "fun" aesthetic, moving away from previous "serious" designs.
  • Simplicity Focused: Reduced details to essentials, eliminating shadows and emphasizing select highlights.
  • Artistic Inspiration: Drawing from Roy Lichtenstein, Hiroshi Nagai, vintage comic illustrators
  • AI and Community Integration: Offering a tool in their Discord for holders to view the best trait combinations from AI testing.

The Bulk

DeGods initiated a significant shift in its design approach after an initial preview of the Season III art. While the initial plan was to maintain a more "serious" design, community feedback highlighted the innate playful spirit of DeGods. Thus, the team revamped the aesthetic to be more vibrant, reminiscent, and colorful.

The redesigned DeGods are intentionally flat, emphasizing the art of minimalism. Shadows are absent, with highlighted tones only applied to specific traits. This striking visual transformation draws inspiration from legendary artists such as Roy Lichtenstein and Hiroshi Nagai, and vintage comic illustrators.

Additionally, in its commitment to community engagement and technological progression, DeGods conducted extensive AI testing on Midjourney prompts for every DeGod trait. The best outcomes from these tests have been compiled into a tool, which holders can access for free in the community Discord.

Female DeGods will be delayed to gather more input from the female community members.

y00ts Moving, DeGods Season III Brings Major Updates
Logan Hitchcock

DeLabs, the team behind DeGods and y00ts, announced three major updates in the last 12 hours, including a y00ts migration, DeGods Season III and the opening of the Points Parlor. 

The Deets

  • y00ts shifts from Polygon to Ethereum, returning 100% of the Polygon grant.
  • Funds re-invested for NFT growth, aiming to unite y00ts and DeGods communities.
  • DeGods Season III introduces 20,000 new art pieces, no dilution. 
  • Four generations of art for each DeGod, introduction of Female DeGods
  • Season III DeGods update costs 333 $DUST; funds boost the Points Parlor prize pool.
  • More info is expected on Points Parlor today. 

The Bulk

Frank DeGods rolled out substantial updates to the DeGods NFT ecosystem. First, the y00ts community will be transitioning from Polygon to Ethereum. As part of the move, the entirety of the grant received from Polygon will be returned. Polygon will then be able to strategically utilize them to foster NFT ecosystem expansion, focusing on supporting creators and developers. The transition symbolizes the intention to unify the DeGods & y00ts communities.

Additionally, the announcement of DeGods Season III was made, with the integration of 20,000 new pieces of generative art. These additions will not dilute the existing art pieces but instead, provide minor updates and boosts to existing DeGods. The move will also diversify the collection, as 1:1 swappable female versions will be introduced. DeGods also removed traits that were unwanted by the community, reducing gore and improving inclusivity. 

The process of updating existing DeGods to Season III comes with a 333 $DUST fee. Interestingly, this fee will decrease over time to ensure all members can enjoy the new art and win prizes. Any $DUST used to convert DeGods to Season III will contribute to the Points Parlor prize pool, a platform that allows DeGods holders to use points to play games and win exclusive prizes. A sneak peek reveals prizes ranging from a Tesla to everyday essentials like groceries. More details on this are anticipated.

๐Ÿ“Š By the Numbers

$DUST, the ecosystem token necessary for upgrading to Season III DeGods, is down 2.2% in the last 24 hours. The token is now priced at $2.41, down 68% from its all-time high of $7.58. 

At a price of $2.41, users hoping to upgrade their DeGod immediately will need to pay approximately $800 to do so.

Looking forward to rolling this out. It's something that will start out looking like a toy. But, I believe this is the beginning of a new business model for NFT communities.Frank DeGods on Points Parlor

y00ts Moving, DeGods Season III Brings Major Updates
Frank Shares History of DeGods
Logan Hitchcock

Frank DeGods shared a detailed telling of the rise of DeGods and y00ts in a longform tweet to his audience over the weekend.

The Deets

  • DeGods started with human PFPs amidst animal PFP trend.
  • Introduced the Paper Hand Bitch Tax for under-the-floor listings.
  • Launched the fair token, $DUST, with a max supply of 33,300,000.
  • Pioneered the art upgrade meta with DeadGods.
  • Bridged blockchains, and started anew on BTC. 
  • Introduced de[id] as next major initiative, with S3 coming soon. 

The Bulk

Originating as an antithesis to the raging trend of animal-themed PFPs, DeGods introduced human avatars to make their holders feel revered, like gods. The experimental approach gave birth to the Paper Hand Bitch Tax, though it was unsuccessful.

Pivoting, they then launched a token, $DUST, replicating the simplicity of Bitcoin's structure. This initiative stood in contrast to the complex and sometimes unfair tokenomics of other NFT projects of that era.

One of the most groundbreaking steps was the art upgrade, which converted DeGods to DeadGods, making them a frontrunner project on SOL. The project solidified its staying power by purchasing a basketball team in the Big3 league for $500K.

Yet, the allure for a fresh collection was palpable. Instead of predictable extensions, Frank and team introduced y00ts and the y00tlist, aiming to reshape community-building in web3. y00ts and DeGods later bridged blockchains to Polygon and Ethereum, respectively. 

The blockchain move set the stage for a new entrant, Bitcoin. In 2023, Frank discovered Ordinals and "decided to flex on everybody and literally inscribe an entire Bitcoin block." 

Since that time, the company teased de[id] an improvement on holder verification, to continue to improve infrastructure for community building. It's next 

It hasn't all been smooth sailing. Frank pointed the 0% royalty trend, and FTX collapse as difficult times.

Frank's project rundown comes just two days ahead of the launch of DeGods Season 3, which is expected to launch on August 9.

Frank DeGods Unveils "New" Roadmap
Logan Hitchcock

Frank DeGods unveiled a novel roadmap format, repurposing an old Facebook profile to keep their followers updated on project milestones.

The Deets

  • A novel roadmap format: designed in the style of an old Facebook profile.
  • Frequent updates: the Facebook-inspired roadmap will be updated over time.
  • A clue-riddled roadmap: hints at future developments are woven into the roadmap design.
  • Roadmap subjects: includes progress on DeGods Season III, y00ts2, Points, DUST, and more.

The Bulk

Breaking away from convention yet again, Dust Labs is presenting their future plans not in a traditional roadmap format, but using a unique and nostalgic design reminiscent of an old Facebook profile.

Much like their first wordless roadmap, this new Facebook-styled format is expected to follow a similar trajectory. The roadmap will contain clues to future developments, many of which may not be apparent at first glance. However, as time goes on and updates are rolled out, the intentions behind these clues will become clear.

In addition to the updates regarding DeGods Season III, y00ts2, and Points, there's also news on $DUST. Dust Labs recently underwent a rebranding, marking the end of emissions and the dawn of a new era signified by a revamped logo.

๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ The Big Picture

DeGods and y00ts are innovating not just in the NFT space, but also in community engagement and coordination, promoting an environment of collaboration and collective vision-building. Brands are able to "apply" to collaborate with the rabid community on the new website.

Frank DeGods Unveils "New" Roadmap
Frank DeGods Teases de[id]
Logan Hitchcock

Frank DeGods teased a few details of the upcoming v0.1 of de[id], a platform offering unique wallet authentication, Twitter integration, and enhanced Web3 profiles from DeGod's founding company, Dust Labs. 

The Deets

  • de[id] + Wallet: Offers authentication for ETH, Polygon & BTC, with wallet delegation to minimize security risks
  • de[id] + Twitter: Connect your Twitter account for streamlined interactions with DeGods & y00ts NFT communities
  • de[id] v1.0 (coming soon): Promises a more user-centric web3 profile environment

The Bulk

Dust Labs has unveiled the v0.1 of de[id], a cutting-edge platform designed to reshape how users interact with the Web3 ecosystem. The platform's functionality can be broken down into three key areas: wallet, Twitter, and user profiles.

In the realm of wallets, de[id] brings an advanced level of authentication for Ethereum, Polygon, and Bitcoin, providing a much-needed feature in an industry plagued by security concerns. Furthermore, it introduces the concept of wallet delegation. With this, users can authenticate their cold wallet once and avoid the risks associated with repeatedly accessing these secure storage solutions.

The platform's integration with Twitter enables quick community building. Upon connecting their Twitter accounts, users will be followed by DeGodsNFT and y00tsNFT. And shortly, a feature will allow users to one-click follow all verified DeGods and y00ts NFT holders.

BTC DeGods Coming to Miami
Staff Writer

DeGods, in partnership with Ordinal Gallery, is hosting an art event featuring live auctions and special collaborations on May 18. 

The Deets

  • Hosted at Jonathan Schultz Gallery and will include live auctions, powered by Gamma's Dutch auction tool.
  • Attendees can bid on unique digital and physical art pieces.
  • A special 1/1 collaboration piece between Jonathan Schultz and Pudgy Penguins will be unveiled and auctioned, with a portion of the proceeds going to charity.

โ—๏ธWhy It Matters

This is the first Bitcoin Miami in which an NFT presence is actually relevant, given the relatively new rise of Bitcoin Ordinals and NFTs on the Bitcoin blockchain. DeGods is well known as one of the strongest communities in web3, but it will be interesting to see the reception from participants during a week that does not have an NFT specific focus.
