What is Tamerz? (Short project introduction)
Tamerz is the first Exercise-to-Earn (X2E) project on Cardano. You can turn calories into profit by earning Tamerz Tokens (TT) on our X2E mobile app. Tamerz introduced the first ever "Exchangeable traits". After earning TT, you can buy, sell and swap traits on our in-app exchange, increase the rarity of your NFT and change its looks. On Tamerz Social, you can exercise with a friend and earn TT bonus. We aim to support not only running but all sports. Tamerz is about connecting exercise and blockchain through persistent innovation.
How many Tamerz are there?
There are 5555. Tamerz are all unique, with traits hand-drawn by our artist.There are over a 100+ monsters, making Tamerz one of the first "Double Character" projects.
How many NFTs can I buy?
You can buy as many as you like.
How will the NFT drop be run?
We have partnered with Rarety.io. They received Catalyst funding from the Cardano Foundation and have gone to great lengths to ensure smooth minting of large collections with lots of interest.
We have added Whitelist after request by our community. To win a WL spot, you can participate in games and competitions on Twitter and Discord. There is a discount for WL.
We want to build on a blockchain that is reliable and proven to work and Cardano fits that bill. As an added bonus it also has an amazing CNFT community, the welcome we recieved has been overwhelming.
Check back shortly ahead of the mint.
When is the mint date and what price?
The mint is set for 17. September at 15:00 UTC. The price will be 65 ADA for WL mint and 75 ADA for the pubic mint. WL will begin 1 hour before the main mint (14:00 UTC).
Which wallets can I use to buy Tamerz?
You can purchase your Tamerz NFT using a Cardano Shelly wallets such as CC Wallet, Nami Wallet, Daedalus Wallet, AdaLite and Yoroi.
What is the benefit of holding Tamerz?
Tamerz will give you access to the Exercise to Earn (X2E) app. There you can workout with friends, earn Tamerz Tokens (TT), buy, sell and swap the traits of your NFT, meet new people and a lot more. To learn more about the X2E concept, we have created a separate page on https://tamerz.org/x2e
What is the Tamerz Card?
Tamerz Cards are 2 separate NFT collections that gives our OG’s governance power in the project. There is the ability to convert into Tamerz NFT for free, Discord roles, hidden chats, etc. To win one you had to participate in our Twitter competitions. The Tamerz Card is free and cannot be brought from us, but you are free to sell it. We have already given out all 75 Gold Cards and 75 Rainbow Cards. After purchasing one, you will be verified on our Discord before joining the governance.
This interview was done on the @CnftWorld Twitter in June 2022, before we have finalized and announced the Exercise to Earn (X2E) concept.
Tell us a little about Tamerz, what type of project is it?
(Filip) For us, the team at Tamerz, quality is paramount. We want to provide art, community, smart contracts, and website that satisfy even the largest critics of Blockchain and the NFT space. We are focused on the long term and plan to expand the project further after a successful launch. Much of our goals are still to be set, but in making decisions we are driven by the interest of our community and holders first.
Tell us about the decision to switch from Solana to Cardano?
(Matt) We have a number of areas we want to take this project into and the six or seven shutdowns that Solana has had, is simply unacceptable. Imagine the chain going down in the middle of the mint. I knew the Cardano community and I knew the chain has proven itself reliable and the best to build on.
How have you found Cardano so far?
(Filip) What surprised me is the very warm welcome, something we never saw on Solana. It was the tipping point, after which we made the decision to come to Cardano. The community is very bitcoin-like- well-educated people, who don’t fall for rug-pulls and don’t tolerate scams. For me, it seems like it’s still a small community where everybody knows everybody. Learning and discussing with other, much more experienced people has never been so easy on other chains and they are all prepared to take from their time to educate others. There is almost no ego involved and that’s
Where did the idea for the project come from?
(John) The idea of this project simply came from the world of Pokemon and Digimon were masters and monsters fight against another pair, it’s the same concept however Tamerz focused more on the domestications of monsters, the monster get along with the Homies, doing something fun together and so on. Like every story there will always be a dark side, a twist and turns, a hero and a villain, win and defeat, blessed or cursed, power and weakness. It will be a very demanding project, fun and entertaining. We planned and designed it to be a possible open world game or a novel or a comic based project. The good thing of the concept itself has endless possibilities.
What about the team behind the project?
(John) John, before we do this project I was doing NFT projects before, I have made countless of projects for somebody already, meet quite few people on its way, I came up to the point that I realized, I wanna make my own project, so I decided to make a design (not the Tamerz back then) and tried to let people know my project until I stumble upon (F) which is looking for an artist to partner with, I said “i’m also on to my own project so let’s team up and get it done” we got in a meeting immediately and plan everything from scratch. Then we got Matt to be in this project since he was the dude with Cardano in his DNA and that really gave us a better path for this project.
What got the team interested in Blockchain and NFT’s?
(Filip) Around 2014- 2015 I first saw Bitcoin and the infamous by that time Dark web markets. Until 2017 I was only lightly following the space. During the ICO Boom of 2017 I started learning more about the technology and a year later started my coding journey. As I’m pretty confident with Solidity and Rust, Cardano represents a big change and a challenge for me, since the whole technological paradigm is very different than the most prevalent EVM chains and Solana (think native tokens, sending transactions, etc) but I look at it as a great opportunity to learn. Although Cardano is very different from all those chains, it can very well become the leading chain of the future.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far with this project?
(Matt) On my side, I wouldn’t necessarily call it a challenge, but there are so many projects released daily – it’s surreal. We need to make sure we can get seen, and show the community that we are not an eth copy, but have a unique concept and actually want to develop benefits so holders never want to sell.
How do you see the NFT space evolving over the next few months?
(Filip) The whole Blockchain space will most probably stagnate for a couple of months. I don’t see rising market caps at least in the near term. Like all “crashes” in the last years, a bull run will inevitably follow. We are definitely optimistic about the long-term future of NFTs and even more optimistic about the blockchain space as a whole. A lot of bright people are working on improving it.
Do you guys collect NFT’s? Favourite?
(Matt) Yes I have a few including an old CardanoBit and an Onboard Furble, their art is beautiful. I also like some more smaller collections such as Julie Louise Cryptodelic Art.
