Overview

Quirkies is an art-based project with a focus on community and culture. The project launched in February 2022 with 5,000 NFTs created by @SyntribosStable. Syntribos first got into crypto in 2013 and has been an early stage investor in several blue chip projects such as Bored Ape Yacht Club and Cool Cats. Each Quirkie is the holder's personal companion and represents a metaverse persona that celebrates everyone's quirks. Each Quirkie was illustrated using several hundred traits of quirkiness.

From the project’s mission and vision statement:

“We are an art-based project with a focus on community and culture. We are inspired by our founders love of the surf/skate culture and look to implement this throughout our brand. We are above all else entirely inclusive and will always celebrate our own and everyone else's quirks.”

Part I

Quirkies are an ancient race filled with a rich and glorious history. Evolving throughout a millenia, the story of the Quirkies will gie insight to those in search of what comes next… With the ability to travel through time, space, and dimensions beyond our understanding.

Quirkies have battled hardships… No matter the struggle Quirkies have faced, they work together, for each other and for you.

Naturally, Quirkies are leaders, pioneers, innovators, creators, and builders. As for the community the Quirkies have created, it’s quirking awesome.

Along the way, Quirkies have picked up on a few of our traits and styles, and have been leading the way to teach and welcome the newest members of Quirksville, with room for more.

Part II

It’s said in Quirk mythology, when a Quirkie was born, so was a Quirkling. Tied together at the soul the Quirkies [sic] to explore innovate, and create. But Quirklings are different. They were sent to protect. 

The squid’s strategy was simple: overrun and take the Quirklings. They stood their ground, but wave after wave, they kept coming.

History

Since the February 2022 mint, the collection has experienced a high of more than 6 ETH per NFT but has taken a back seat. Of course, the slowdown can be attributed to the bearish sentiment flooding the entire NFT market.

The Quirkies NFT collection features hundreds of traits, so each owner can find one that reflects their true self. This allows owners to have more of a bond with their digital creatures. If you cannot decide which one best reflects your personality, nothing stops you from getting another one.

The team plans to have only 5,000 Quirkies, not adding anymore aside from their companions. The cost to mint your very own Quirkie was 0.05 ETH in February. It is a pretty sweet deal compared to the current floor price. The initial mint allowed 2 mints per whitelist spot and 5 mints per account during the public sale. Therefore, the pool of owners has been kept relatively small. It is still unsure if the team plans to expand this pool in the future.

Quirklings

Mint Date, 3 June 2022, 10,000 Supply

Quirkies have prospered throughout Quirksville, living in peace for thousands of years...

Suddenly an evil force flooded Quirkies homeland leaving them no choice but to send a brave few into the metaverse in search for their long lost allies, the Quirklings. They will need to work together if they have any chance of defeating the evil that has begun to consume Quirksville…

utility

Quirkies founders are working to deliver a bridge between web2 and web3 by building the brand around both IRL and online experiences—from surf- and skate-inspired streetwear and IRL events to branded metaverse experiences. 

Community membership

Quirkies NFTs represent memberships that give holders global access to exclusive IRL events and experiences. There are four membership tiers based on the tokens you hold. Alpha tier membership gives you highest access to any tiered rewards and consists of holding a Quirkie and its numbers matching Quirkling. Omega tier is any OG Quirkie along with any Quirkling set. Gamma tier is reached by holding an OG Quirkie. Delta tier consists of holding a single Quirkling. 

Commercial usage

The owner of a Quirkie owns the art IP. They may use the image as they wish so long as they own that particular Quirkie. Use of the image for profit must cease upon sale. Although the holder owns the IP they do not own any Quirkies logos or other art used and therefore cannot use it without written approval.

Metaverse

The Quirkies team has future plans to build a metaverse where Quirkies NFTs can “flex their powers.” In the meantime, the team is working towards bringing the creatures into existing metaverses. In October 2022, Quirkies announced a partnership with Helix Metaverse to airdrop in-game assets like digital wearables to Quirkies holders.
