SoDead is a Solana NFT project building the next big modern vampire franchiseJOIN DISCORD
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
What do vampires do? They hunt...
Send your vampires off on weekly hunts to earn keys which can be used to open loot boxes with $VAMP, traits, NFTs, physical prizes, and more!
Some vampires are better hunters than others...it all depends on the rarity tier of your vamp, as well as particular traits
Certain traits may be required for certain hunts, with progressive rewards as you get further into the overall quest
At this stage, hunting is a semi-passive gamified rewards system, but will continue to evolve over time into a full blown RPG game
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
The main focus will be evolving hunting from a passive gamification system to a semi-passive gamification system with more RPG concepts such as quests, traits, and skill levels
