SoDead will bridge the gap between web2 and web3 through vampire-themed gamification, captivating content, modern lore, powerful community, and incredible art
SoDead is building a community-driven mainstream vampire franchise. We aim to bridge the gap between web2 and web3 through vampire-themed gamification, captivating content, modern lore, powerful community, and incredible art
A unique strength of SoDead is our vampire theme. Vampires have been an integral part of human folklore for centuries and have already stood the test of time. Vampire sub-culture already exists outside of web3, which positions us well to bridge that gap and take our IP mainstream.
We will deliver on this vision democratically and transparently, with on-chain voting and holder proposals through our partnership with Align

Since the start of the new century, human caused industrial catastrophes such as: Baia Mare Cyanide contamination, Deepwater Horizon explosion, Jilin Chemical spill and Fukushima Nuclear disaster have all had detrimental impact on the global environment. This is compounded by human dependence on technologies that has left endless amounts of toxic materials that have entered the air, soil, and water-supplies around the world. This hazardous cocktail is viewed as the catalyst in disrupting the deep slumber of the SoDead.
At first the number of vampire related sightings and incidents were small and isolated but have since increased tremendously over the last decade. Awaking Vampires (even Elders) across the world. Rekindling relationships, reigniting old rivalries, and driving endless plotting and scheming as Vampires with opposing ideologies strategize in their pursuit of power in the shadows.
Three Vampire Tribes have now emerged in today’s society. Each with its set of beliefs, values, governance, and more importantly validation as to why they are the rightful heirs of the unending night.
Dare to know more? The saga is only beginning. Enter the world of SoDead...
The original founders rugged...then the "derugger" rugged...but you can't kill what is already dead. SoDead 3.0 is now community-driven and unstoppable
SoDead originally minted in July 2022 as a 4,200 supply collection on the Solana blockchain. It was a very low cost mint at 0.069 SOL, which sold out instantly due to Haizeel's incredible art.
One month after the mint, the original founders did a mint for Chalices, raising 600 SOL. Immediately after this mint, they rugged the project and ran away with the funds. Somebody in the community took over the project to "derug" it, but unfortunately was no better than the original founders.
6 months after stringing the community along and making false promises, the "derugger" also rugged the project, after generating over $350K in royalties, leaving the community with nothing.
But you can't kill what's already dead! The entire community stepped up to keep the project going and we are now on a better path than ever before to turn SoDead into the top NFT project on Solana.
Women are underrepresented in web3. There's not enough good female PFPs...and the ones that DO exist are typically oversexualized. Women need a PFP that resonates with them
In March 2023, we decided to expand SoDead by adding 2,000 lady vampires into the main collection with art that truly resonates with women, with a community of like-minded women they can call home
SoDead is now a community-driven project with a multi-sig wallet
Despite being left with zero funds from the original founders, SoDead raised over $20K in February through royalties, trait auctions, and donations to build our initial hunting game and tech platform
SoDead is much more than a casual vibing community...it's family. We are creating a new trend in gamification and NFT customization - with a strong focus on rewarding holders through Hunting for $VAMP, traits and much more. With other opportunities to earn through Flex2earn and Raid2earn, multiple mini games available (Flipcup, multi-flip, Bonk) and much more to come, we are creating a suite of opportunity for play2earn. We have on-chain governance that allows our holders to submit proposals to the DAO and contribute to the project. We also have white label tech for other projects, such as our trait swap platform, purification process and P2P marketplace
There are 3 separate levels of SoDead vampire:
- OG is the original mint version of our collection, this is the basic level of artwork
- Purified vampires are the next step up, both in terms of art (a significant step up in features of the vamp) and earn rate of keys during hunting
- Tribes are the crème de la crème of the Vampire ecosystem, boasting the best artwork whilst being split into three separate but truly amazing tribes, Lycan, Gangrel, Bat. Tribes also earn the most in terms of Hunting and have the most say in our DAO
Purification is the process of changing your OG vampire into the Purified vampire. To do this, you will burn your original OG as well as a fee in $VAMP (currently 9,666 $VAMP at time of writing). You are then awarded your newly minted Purified Vampire on which you can send on Hunts to earn additional keys or further customize within the trait platform (as only Purified and Tribe Vamps are allowed to be customized), allowing truly unique NFT’s based on your love for different trait types (Bonus: when you customize Vamps, you keep any trait that is removed during the process allowing you to swap any time you want.
Hunting is a lore-driven gamified rewards system. You will send your vamps out on hunt for a certain time period (e.g., 7 days) and at the end of the hunt, you will receive keys that can be used to open loot boxes with $VAMP, traits, WL spots, or other prizes. Vamps with better traits like Tribes, Purified, and Shoulder Bats will have access to better hunts. We will have both standard 7 days hunts, but also pop-up "flash hunts" with better rewards for the most active members of our community
We have a DAO structure where 20% of royalties are sent directly to a treasury wallet that is governed by the community (with the goal of gradually increasing that to 100% once the project has more outside revenue streams to fund development). All community members are able to submit proposals for things that they would like to do to help the project, and get rewarded in the process. Proposals that receive a certain number of upvotes are sent to the Coven Council. Aside from financial proposals, we will also use this system to vote on strategic decisions and allow community members to submit ideas for the project to consider, separately from what the DAO does themselves
The main focus of the project will be evolving hunting into a full-fledged MORPG game, as well as developing technology for other projects in the ecosystem. Developing an MORPG might sound like a super ambitious goal for a derug project, but we will be using a lean approach to gradually develop the game (i.e., create additional RPG-esque components that can eventually come together with gameplay vs. delivering on the full game all at once)
