Meet Soul Dogs City, a Solana blockchain-based project on a mission to onboard the next million people into the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency through simple, fun, and gamified virtual experiences. After successfully selling out a 9,999 piece collection of Soul Dogs NFTs in 4 minutes, the team behind the project has focused on building a new type of metaverse that blends social gamification with decentralized finance (DeFi).
The result is the Soul Dogs City metaverse, a web3 browser-based interactive DeFi experience that allows you to freely explore, own high-quality 3D NFTs, and earn digital currency in an engaging and gamified way.
“Soul Dogs City will be the first “complete” metaverse on Solana. This means you’ll be able to explore a virtual city, interact with fellow citizens in the community, own high-quality 3D NFTs, and earn digital currency to participate in a vibrant economy” said Sly Doggie, Community & Growth lead at Soul Dogs. “And all of this happens within an engaging browser-based virtual experience powered by the Solana Blockchain.”
Old School Meets the Metaverse
Inspired by retro-culture, Soul Dogs takes a light-hearted approach to decentralized finance, what many consider a complex and confusing space. The Soul Dogs City metaverse is populated by high-quality 3D dog characters with varying traits such as retro track jackets, afro hairstyles, throwback NBA jerseys, and clever odes to iconic ’80s and ‘90s movies and music.
In Soul Dogs City you live in a digital Dog House and generate income by sending your Soul Dogs to work to earn $BONES tokens. Where do you spend your Bones? Shopping, of course, where you can spend precious Bones at the City Shop to get more dogs, a new house, or items to customize and enhance your experience in Soul Dogs City.
Setting the foundation for their metaverse, the project launched their $BONES utility token on Raydium Protocol on March 4th which will be followed closely by their digital land, native marketplace, and Job Board where owners of Soul Dogs NFTs can stake to earn $BONES tokens.
Soul Dogs City is governed by a community-controlled decentralized autonomous organization, known as a “DAO”, which will help decide the future development of Soul Dogs City. All $BONES token holders are eligible to vote on City Council initiatives proposed by fellow owners and community members. The primary function of the DAO is to decide when to expand the Soul Dogs City metaverse through the creation of additional Dog Houses, manage project treasury funds, and choose which projects to provide grants through the Soul Dogs City Underdog Fund.
The Underdog Fund is a community grant that provides creators, musicians, developers, and charitable causes with fuel to pursue their dreams. Any Soul Dogs City community members will be able to apply for up to $5,000 to help them carry out their own vision. No strings attached.
