How to swap an Unofficial Trashpunk for the new Official, dedicated smart contract TRASHPUNK:
This can be done from your metamask or directly from opensea. I find opensea to be the easiest.
To swap out, you will send your trashpunk to the ENS (Ethereum Name Service) below:
This ENS routes to: 0x74121b0bB9bA0eE35456f3105A4a5dBe38D01BA1
Once all Unofficial TrashPunks have been sent, there will be an official burn.
SO YOU MAY BE WONDERING WHY???
There are a few reasons I opted to create a dedicated TRASHPUNKS smart contract. The number one reason is future upgrades, especially related to metadata, such as name changes, add-ons to the GIFs (tattoos, sex changes, etc). This will also be a necessary swap if you have a GEN1 Trashpunk, when breeding starts. Parents of generation 2 trashpunks will receive split royalties every time one of their offspring sell. Currently this is tested and working when trading using the Cargo platform.
With the new contract, your TRASHPUNKS will show on all platforms as their official collection, TRASHPUNKS V2. The prior contract was through opensea using the shared storefront. This collection is great when using one platform, but when viewed on other platforms, the TRASHPUNKS do not show as their own collection. Instead, they show as “Opensea Shared Storefront”. They may be TRASH, but I take my punks pretty seriously, as I do all of my art.
A brief covering of my concept towards breeding trashpunks:
- Generation One – “The Fertile Boomers”
- Generation Two – “The Sterile Millennials” (before you get your feelings hurt, I’m a millennial and I find this funny AF so lighten up).
Generation One Trashpunks consist of punks 1-167 (including misprints). These are the only TRASHPUNKS that will be able to produce offspring. To “breed” trashpunks, you simply need to have ANY TWO Trashpunks in your wallet and foot the “hospital bill” Pricing TBD.
A few things to consider:
- Any two trashpunks can produce more trash, sex doesn’t matter.
- Once you foot the hospital bill, you can trade the parents. Since you had them for the “inception” you will be entitled to split royalties dubbed “Parent Support” (TRASHY RIGHT?) every time the offspring punk is traded! This will be set one time, via smart contract and the funds will automatically be deposited to the ETH Address you initiated the breeding from.
- GEN1 (1-167) [plus current misprints]
- GEN 2 (168-617) [450 Total]
After TRASHPUNK 617 is “born” there will be a vote from all of the holders (TBD) on if they would like the series to continue, and evolve into a Machine Learning, automated breeding concept. Majority vote will be needed for this to pass.
If this passes, a DAO will be formed, and the royalties will be split between all DAO members. We still have a LONG way to go before we get to this point, but I figured I would include my whole vision, while I’m writing.
If you awesome TRASHPUNKS have any questions please feel free to reach out. You can find me on twitter @ih0dl or @trash_punks. There is also a newly created discord channel to help bring the community to one easy place to chat, shoot the shit, maybe ever trade trashpunks, who know, but it can be found here: https://discord.gg/jdtUXtzE
Closing note, I am working on web3 integration to trashpunks.app that would allow for swapping and create a seamless breeding experience. And last, but not least, thank you guys for your amazing support of this project. It’s honestly like a dream come true. I love all of you TRASHY MFS!
