The Plague Offers Equity Based on NFTs
Logan Hitchcock

Earlier this week, the Plague NFT surprised holders with equity in the company, offering real shares based on their Frog NFT holdings.

The Deets

  • Equity Offer: Frog NFT holders receive company shares.
  • Share Allocation: Based on the number of unlisted frogs held and additional multipliers.
  • No Action Needed: Holders automatically receive shares, with vesting linked to a future staking mechanism. 
  • Corporate Transition: The Plague is in the process of changing from an LLC to a C-Corp to facilitate this process.

The Bulk

In an unprecedented move, The Plague NFT announced a groundbreaking initiative on Christmas morning. The project is offering real equity shares to holders of their Frog NFTs. The share allocation is determined by the number of unlisted frogs a holder possesses, with multipliers enhancing the percentage based on various criteria such as snapshots taken since 2022, special allocations for proactive community members, team member allocations, and profile picture (PFP) usage.

Holders do not need to take any action to receive these shares. The only requirement is to hold onto their frog NFTs until the shares are vested. The Plague NFT is currently in the process of transitioning from a Limited Liability Company (LLC) to a Corporation (C-Corp) to execute this plan effectively. The founder has retained the majority of the company to ensure the mission's execution and has stated that such distributions may not occur again in the future, emphasizing the uniqueness of this gift.

โ—Why It Matters

Many have thought of owning an NFT as owning "equity" in a particular collection, but until now, no project has formally offered equity to its holders.

P.S. Yes it is legal. I did not sell them. You had no expectation of receiving them when you bought your frog. They are a gift. P.S.S. I consulted with multiple lawyers on the subject.Pons

๐Ÿ”œ What's Next?

Details about the company valuation, the percentage of shares allocated, and the vesting period are yet to be disclosed. Holders are advised to stay tuned for further announcements regarding the staking mechanism and other specifics.

The Plague of Frogs Migrating to New Contract on Friday
Julian Son

The Plague of Frogs will migrate contracts on Friday in order to enforce royalties, per an announcement from the project.

โ— Why It Matters

The new contract will add features that weren't possible in the current contract. The advantages of the new contract will allow for upgradeability and the enforcement of royalties.

๐Ÿ”Ž The Deets

  • The metadata for current @ThePlagueNFT frogs will be changing soon in anticipation of the upcoming contract migration on Friday.
  • The new NFT will be airdropped into the wallet that owns the old frog. There will be the ability to unstake, transfer, and restake to gain the same rewards.
  • Listings that remain on Friday will be delisted by OpenSea and Blur, and by default no frogs will be listed on the new collection.
  • The royalties will likely stay at 10%, but not more.

๐Ÿ”œ What’s Next?

There will potentially be a burn of old frog NFTs (to claim $FRG) after migration and at a later date.
