Mfers NFT (short for motherf***ers) is an -based collection of stick figure designed by and generated entirely from hand drawings. Although their initial minting costs were low, they expanded in scale and laid the path for several subsequent meme collections. [1][2][3][4]


The Mfers NFT collection comprises a set of 10,000 meme NFTs, drawing inspiration from the original NFT collection. Also, there are an additional twenty-one 1/1 NFTs created to honor 21 prominent from that particular period, such as (BAYC).

On November 30, 2021, Mfers were minted, and the collection of 10,021 NFTs was made available for purchase. According to the official Mfers website, the value assigned to each distinct non-fungible token (NFT) was 0.069 ETH at the time of its creation. 21 of them are unique 1-on-1 NFTs inspired by the "Are you winning, son?" meme template, crafted by the artist.

The artist behind the NFTs, provided insights regarding the inspiration behind the development of the 1-on-1 Mfers:

"after being immersed in nfts during jpg summer ‘21 I also wanted to do a tribute to what I considered many iconic nfts at that point — so I added the 21 1/1 drawings in a style similar to the “are you winning dad” meme."

The remaining 50% of royalties is divided among Sartoshi himself, other developers, and consultants who worked on the project. [11]
