Okay Bears provided holders and community members with an update of items expected to be staggered during the first and second quarter of 2023 on its official Twitter account this morning.
The project, which took the community by storm this summer, is poised to enter 2023 fully embracing and leaning into community support with multiple initiatives aimed at benefitting existing holders and active participants of its previously executed Bear Drops.
Below we'll walk through some of the expected items coming to the OKB Community:
Okay Badges, Streaks
In an effort to reward holding, trading, and community engagement, Okay Bears is establishing Okay Badges and Streaks. Users can earn and dynamically upgrade badges based on their involvement in the community, eventually leading to exclusive holder rewards.
Okay Bears Gold Medallion
Okay Bears will be making a limited edition 10g Gold Medallion which features the OKB logo. This limited edition drop will be redeemable only through burning Bear Drop collectibles.
The project also teased that this would not be the last time users can burn collectibles for additional, exclusive rewards.
Okay Bears Merchandise
Okay Bears merchandise is coming soon too! The announcement indicates that the ethically sourced merchandise is "almost here" though no official dates or times have been provided.
More On the Way..
Lastly, the project indicated that through the help of its partnership with IMG Academy many more initiatives and talks are underway. The aforementioned roadmap items are just a taste of things the project has planned for 2023, with many more items "left under wraps" for now.
The project will likely end the year far from its all-time high floor price, but it has rebounded more than 100 percent since its local bottom around the peak of the FTX fallout.
Okay Bears is partnering with Movember USA, a leading charity for men's health, to celebrate and promote "Movember," an annual event marked by the growing of mustaches during November, while raising awareness of issues like prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide.
As part of the partnership, Okay Bears holders will be able to adopt a legendary mustache for their Okay Bear PFP. To gain access to the legendary stache, Okay Bears holders can refer to the token-gated toolkits.
In addition to the legendary stache, a 1/1 Movember Bear will be put up for auction.
This is a developing story and will be updated by Lucky Trader.
Minting for Okay Bears second airdrop starts at 9 p.m. ET today for those on the Drop List.
Qualified holders will be able to mint one of 1,000 Boombox NFTs from the time of the mint until Nov. 3 at 9 p.m. ET. Minting details will likely be released on Twitter at the time of the drop.
Okay Bears floor price on Magic Eden is 41 SOL (about $1,348).

Okay Bears, a leading Solana PFP project, announced the release of an expansive community toolkit filled with brand assets for community use early Tuesday morning.
The toolkit is composed of multiple OKBC Logos, the “We are Okay” Slogan, OKBC Mascot, Seal, and Brand Guidelines, such as color palettes.
"When you hold an Okay Bear, you gain access to an ever-expanding set of IP, not just a single JPEG. We want to empower you to take your Okay Bear from an NFT to a stand-alone personal or commercial brand," read an announcement in the project's Discord.
The toolkit can be accessed at https://toolkit.okaybears.com, but is only available to holders of Okay Bears and the Okay Gold Coin.
After a tremendous burst onto the scene, Okay Bears have steadily declined in floor price over the last few months. The project recorded a high floor price of 263 SOL on Magic Eden in May but now holds just a 43.33 SOL floor on the platform.
Okay Bears hired a new head of development and engineering to build out "an amazing tech team" and make Okay Bears "an impactful contributor to the web3 ecosystem," the team announced today.
The new hire, who goes by the name rlx, is "a software engineer with over 20 years of experience," according to the team, and was formerly the "CTO of an award-winning OG web2 SaaS company." They also founded and created MoonRank NFT, which is a statistical rarity service that has been integrated into all major Solana markets and tools.
"Rlx is an open-source proponent and has contributed to countless projects including PHP (to which he added JSON support), PostgreSQL, Electron, Quiche, unfiltered, netty, the Solana validator and other Solana projects, Google Closure Library, mcrouter, octodns, and many more," the team wrote on Twitter.
Frank, of DeGods and y00ts fame, chimed in to call the hire an "absolute W."
It appears the new addition to the team will remain anonymous, despite the long list of accomplishments they've earned. It is unclear if Okay Bears is hiring new developers in addition to rlx or not.
Okay Bears announced the final phase of its Bear Drop Campaign began early on Sunday morning.
The campaign follows two others that encourage increased social and community engagement for Okay Bears fans and holders.
In the previous two drops, 500 allowlist spots were given away to select engaged members that showcased enthusiasm for Okay Bears while completing select social tasks.
For the final drop, users are asked to raise their hand in the "Campaign" channel inside the Okay Bears Discord. From there 300 holders will be selected to take part in a "Wrong Answers Only" campaign for which all selected parties will receive a guaranteed spot on the upcoming Bear Drop NFT allowlist.
Interested Okay Bears holders will have until 5:00 a.m. ET on Monday, Oct. 17 to express interest in participating.
Okay Bears released a batch of updates in regards to its next Bear Drop in a tweet from earlier this evening.
Details on the next Bear Drop are currently not concrete but the team did share a couple of items to look out for. One is that users should start expecting to see more social campaigns surrounding the Bear Drop exclusively for Okay Bears holders. The second is that for the social campaign, the team will be selecting 1000 participants to receive a limited edition Bear Drop NFT.
