Latest mfers News
Mfers are going fully onchain in an effort to store the collection in the most robust way possible.
🔙 Back It Up
@galtoshi and her husband, @DadMod_xyz, decided Mfers needed to live completely on chain, and have been working on this project for about a year. They partnered with @0xSomeGuy as a developer and will be releasing information per phase (additional infographics, FAQs, and AMA spaces) so as to not overwhelm the holders.
- The Mfer collection is made up of 103 different layer attributes (plus nine that Sartoshi didn't use). Those attributes are going on chain first (Phase 1), starting this Thursday.
- The supply is 112.
- Mint date: May 25, 2023.
- Mint price: 0.69 ETH.
- The gif artwork is 2732 x 2048 by 330 dpi.
- This is phase 1 of three phases (Seed, Sow, and Grow).
Those that mint one of the 112 commemorative tokens for 0.69 ETH each in phase 1, which goes live this Thursday, 5/25, will receive an airdrop of the on chain base layer token. The funds collected from that mint will all go towards paying the gas to deploy the contracts onchain.
Both of those tokens (the commemorative art by @0xSThompson and the on chain layer token) can be traded on secondary. If these 112 layers do not mint out, then the project will not be able to continue.
❗ Why It Matters
This is a community-driven effort (like everything that the mfers do) to have the mfers collection live on the blockchain forever.
🔜 What’s Next?
Details on the phase 1 mint on 5/25/23 will be revealed in the 2nd onchain mfers AMA space (linked below), and mfers lawn flags will also be sold at Lowe's.

❗ Why It Matters
While Sartoshi's brief exit and open edition mint of End of Sartoshi in June 2022 was not met without controversy, the return has received positive price action. Buoyed by the promise of future claims/mints/snapshots, the floor price for End of Sartoshi has hit 0.105 ETH, after toiling in the 0.04-0.05 ETH range prior to today's update.
🔜 What's Next
Official claim and snapshot dates have not yet been provided, but more information is expected soon.

The NFT market has reacted to the news of mfers founder sartoshi's eminent return with some large sales, disappointing price action on one collection, and surprisingly strong price action on another.
Yesterday evening news broke that sartoshi would be returning on Jan. 1, 2023, after riding off into the sunset on June 9, 2022. sartoshi's last action was the creation of his "end of sartoshi" open-edition meme, where he sold 16,996 total NFTs at 0.069 ETH. The open edition almost immediately plummeted, trading below 0.01 ETH for several months.
But the news of his return has spiked interest and buy action, as end of sartoshi has since rebounded to 0.09 ETH, a whopping 220 percent gain on the day on 100 ETH of trading volume.
mfers have not been as fortunate, as the floor briefly rallied to 1.69 ETH yesterday evening at peak, but has since settled at 1.3 ETH (-2% on the day) on 228 ETH volume. This is somewhat disappointing price action on a set that many refer to as the best meme PFP project in the NFT space right now (it's a debate between mfers, Cryptodickbutts, and CrypToadz for most people).
A 1/1 mfer did sell for 18.69 ETH ($23,818) this afternoon though, in the highest sale in months.
There were also sales on rare mfers at 4.75 ETH, 5 ETH and 6.3 ETH in the last day.
On June 9, 2022, sartoshi, the creator of the NFT collection 'mfers,' announced that they would be stepping away from the NFT space and handing over control of the project to its community. They deleted their Twitter account and disappeared, that is until today according to a recent Medium article posted by sartoshi.eth.
In the post, sartoshi talks about various items, one being their reasoning for stepping away from the project. When talking about the ideology of a true cc0 project with artists and community members alike, sartoshi goes on to say "some mfers floated the idea that for mfers to truly reach a leaderless decentralized level, sartoshi should disappear into the ether." sartoshi mulled all of this over before deciding to bring it to fruition by releasing 'end of sartoshi' before exiting the space for the last six months.
The founder then goes on to say they began to notice many within the NFT community viewed their exit as "simply an abandonment of the nft/crypto community" which sartoshi goes on to say "that was never the idea."
They end that statement with an immediate followup..."so on new year's day 2023, i'll be starting up as @sartoshi_rip."
The next meme NFT in the 6529 Collections series has been airdropped to random holders of the collection along with holders of UNIC Access tokens, Nouns, mfers, Moonbirds, CryptToadz, and Cryptodickbutts.
The project sent 1,313 of the 1,500-edition collection to the aforementioned collections' holders this morning, so users are encouraged to check their wallets for a Pepe-ized version of disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried with the words "USE A HARDWARE WALLET."
The floor price on the airdrop is currently 0.59 ETH.
Helix Metaverse announced that it is teaming up with the mfers project on Saturday afternoon. All mfers will be provided in-game merchandise within the Helix Metaverse. Helix is an immersive metaverse platform where users can virtually meet new people, buy and sell digital items, and play different games.
Helix also mentioned in the tweet that holding a Helix Founder Pass and a mfer NFT will guarantee holders a future rare airdrop. No additional details were provided on what the airdrop would include or a timeline as to when holders will receive one.
Popular NFT collection mfers remains steady following the departure of the project's founder Sartoshi.
The average NFT sale on the day Sartoshi left two weeks ago was 1.85 ETH. The average sale today is 1.86 ETH. The floor price is currently 1.73 ETH.
In the last week, volume is down more than 70 percent and total sales are down more than 65 percent. Floor price is down, too, but not significantly.
When Sartoshi announced that he was stepping away from his project, he transferred control of the mfers smart contract to the community.

Amidst a bleak macroeconomic backdrop, NFT volumes continue to decline sharply according to our project rankings page.
Despite the decrease in volume, floor prices are up over the last 24 hours.
Notable price movements include:
- goblintown.wtf up 53%
- Sh*tbeast up 35%
- mfers up 42%
Following an announcement from Sartoshi that he will be stepping away from the project, mfers' floor price dropped more than 30 percent in the last 24 hours.
Sartoshi released his final open-edition mint today for 0.069 ETH before leaving mfers and the rest of the NFT space behind... for now.
His genesis project, mfers, is down to a 1.67 ETH floor price after reaching over 3 ETH on Jun. 6.
The announcement gives smart contract control and most of the project's royalty fees to the community.
