Killabears are the stars of the Killaverse. Designed by artist Memo Angeles, this elite collection of 3,333 horrifyingly lovable digital collectible characters, are what started this whole adventure. When you own a genesis Killabear, you unlock access to a community and ongoing immersive entertainment experience like no other. And commercial IP rights mean you can build anything you can imagine, using your own Killabears.
Killabears first launch was a collection of 3,333 free NFTs. Since then, they’ve built an expansive world and interactive story that includes NFT drops and content designed to bring value to all holders.
Killabits are the protectors of the Killaverse. These pixelart versions were airdropped to all Killabears holders as part of the ongoing interactive storyline. Through Chapter 1 of our innovative staking system, each holder is rewarded with free KillaGear - animated weapons which can be equipped to your Killabits (and soon, your Killacubs).
The Killabits collection was created in June 2022 as the pixel companion collection to the Killabears genesis collection.
Killacubs Mint Passes are exclusive tickets to the Build-A-Cub Workshop in the KillaVerse. Pass holders are given access to build a Killacub for free.
Killabear owners are able to use their traits to build a Killacub.
Non-holders who received a mint pass can choose from a variety of additional traits to build their cub.
View collection on OpenSea
The widely anticipated Killacubs workshop will allow you to build and mint a cub by mixing & matching the traits from your Killabears, or any KillaTraits you own.
You will be able to build one cub for each Killabear you hold.
The remaining supply will be available to KillaPass holders, and the general public.
Like all other assets, Killacubs will become a part of the storyline, and will be used to unlock additional benefits within the Killaverse ecosystem.
What is R.U.S.H?
R.U.S.H. is a special substance which can speed up the REMIX (re-design) of a completed Killacub. In order to REMIX a cub, it would normally need to go back into the Incubator for 4 weeks. But using R.U.S.H. allows you to bypass this, making a REMIX possible instantly!
HOW IT WORKS
Each Killabear generates 1 oz of R.U.S.H. after 30 days staked in the R.U.S.H. Generator. This is enough to speed up the REMIX of 1 Killacub. Once your R.U.S.H. tank is full, you'll need to claim your R.U.S.H.
This will trigger a 15-day cool-down before your bear will automatically begin generating more R.U.S.H.
PLEASE NOTE: If you unstake, list, or sell a bear during the R.U.S.H. Generation phase, your progress will be reset, and your bear will re-start at the beginning when re-staked. If you unstake, list, or sell a bear during the cooldown phase, the cooldown will re-start when that bear is staked again.
6.) The VisitKillaHills.com site gets "hacked", and a strange video is revealed through the code.
In it, an anonymous whistleblower backs up Dr. Fomo's concerns that we are not being told the whole story about the recent BearPod crash.
For a simulated re-enactment of the "hack", click here.
Clicking on the code should begin the whistleblower's message.
7.) KillaVerse Official Press Secretary Maria Mackerel continues to push the official narrative - denying that these strange occurrences are anything to worry about.
Citizens of the #KillaVerse - earlier this morning we were made aware of a targeted attack on the @visitkillahills District's main website. The actions appear to be the work of a few bad actors with the intention of spreading wild conspiracy theories and scaring our community. pic.twitter.com/JFEMk7iDUE
4.) The data packets are then revealed to be the new Killabits collection. Each holder of an OG Killabear received a pixelated Killabit version of each bear they held at the time of the airdrop. These Killabits are Dr. Fomo's solution to beef up the security and strength of the KillaVerse data systems, and put a stop to the Vorian attack.
As these new Killabits are revealed, officials relay an anonymous message they believe is from Dr. Fomo. The message hints that the Killabits may soon need to be upgraded with "more firepower"
5.) A leaked internal memo reveals that officials are anticipating another attack sometime in the near future. Soon enough a strange video clip "accidentally" airs on KBBtv - showing what appears to be an emergency evacuation announcement for all KillaVerse Citizens.
6.) With Dr. Fomo still missing and the killabits needing an upgrade officials turn to KillaLabs, and assign them to reverse-engineer Dr Fomo's technology, in order to build the upgrade for the Killabits. This launches Staking Chapter 1: 'StakeCation'
Enter J. Andrew Bearington - CEO of KillaLabs Research.
After being tasked with figuring out how to provide an upgrade for the Killabits technology, KillaLabs asks citizens to participate in a simple 30-day research study.
In exchange for participation, holders shall receive not only a special upgrade for their Killabit... but also become eligible for additional BONUS rewards (to be revealed later).
Killabears Launches a Free Mint of 3,333 Horrifyingly Lovable, Animated Bears. This is the genesis collection for the project.
After beginning of the Killaverse storyline is presented a second collection is airdropped, called Killabits, to holders of Killabears. Each holder recieved one Killabit for each Killabear they were holding the Killabits are pixel art replicas of their original bears.
The storyline continues to progress and we are presented with Staking Chapter 1: 'StakeCation' - The Quest For A Killabits Upgrade. This is a 30 day staking process where holders were able to stake one Killabear and one Killabit for an "upgrade". This upgrade turned out to be Killagear - weapons we'd find out later their importance - Killacub traits, and other rewards such as other Killabears and Killabits from the projects Treasury.
After the resolution of StakeCation new mechanisms were introduced for Killagear such as merging your Killagear to create new and potentially more powerful Killagear. Merging would burn the Killagear used so this created a deflationary pressure on the collection. You could also equip and unequip your Killagear to your killabit, a feature that would be used in the next staking chapter.
The project has now rolled out Staking Chapter 2: 'The KillaLabs Experiment'. This staking process also requires one Killabear and one Killabit for staking BUT has higher reward tiers if your Killabit has a weapon equipped while it is staked. If the Killabit has a general weapon equiped it will be in the second highest tier and have a better chance at better rewards. If it has a merged weapon attached it will be in the highest reward tier and have the best chances at the highest rewards available in this staking process.
LORE CHAPTER 3: The Quest For A Killabits Upgrade
1.) KillaLabs #StakeCation Study Goes Live
Luxury accommodations are provided by Kilton Hotels of Killa Hills.
In order to be eligible for this staking program, you need:
👉 One (1) KILLABEAR
👉 One (1) KILLABIT
Eligible assets are those that have not already completed the full 30-day Kilton staking program.
How To Stake Your Bears & Bits
Holders may check in for their stay at the Kilton via the official website:
✅ He is working on the Killabits upgrade (separately)
✅ He has designed a "backdoor" in the Killabits, which allows him to stream the data KillaLabs will receive during the StakeCation study.
In addition to the picture on Fomo's desktop, if you right click, and select 'Show Hidden Files', a blueprint is revealed.
3.) Back At KillaLabs progress is proving to be slow, and with new complications being discovered, J. Andrew Bearington is not a happy camper. One anonymous employee of Killalabs does tell-all video explaining there has been no progress on the upgrade, the employees are overworked, and Bearington is becoming increasingly hostile.
Meanwhile Dr. Fomo reveals he has "solved it"
I've SOLVED it!! I have the missing piece. Up-linking to my system. More details SOON!
5.) It is revealed that the rewards are Killagear with some lucky participants receiving additional rewards. Killagear can be equiped to your Killabit via the official bitEqu1pR v2.354 to get your bits geared up!
Some lucky bears who complete the Kilton Staking Study also receive BONUS Rewards in the form of KillaTraits. In this video, Dr Fomo reveals thatthese traits will soon be compatible with the long awaited KILLACUBS.
Soon, for each Killabear you hold, you will be able to mix & match traits (from both your OG's traits, and others you win, receive or purchase) - to build & mint your own army of Killacubs!
Each OG Killabear you hold lets you build & mint one Killacub.
In addition to Killatraits it appears Killagear will also be compatible with Killacubs
🚨 UPDATE: @drf0m0 is unavailable right now, but we just received the following video & message from Agent #827 at @killalabs:
"Doc just had a major breakthrough. We've confirmed that ALL Killacubs will be compatible with KillaGear. Next we'll work on how to convert the data." pic.twitter.com/8P2cCpfzZn
An official Statement On The KillaLabs Incident is made that the facility had to activate Lockdown Protocol. No contact has been made with anyone inside, since this protocol shuts down all physical and digital access points.
Citizens: An incident was reported at @killalabs earlier, forcing the facility to activate Lockdown Protocol.
We have not yet made contact with anyone inside, since this protocol shuts down all physical and digital access points.
