Sup Ducks is a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collection of avatar-style designs of duck heads, each with its unique combination of characteristics. Each SupDuck is individually hand-drawn by artists from MegaVoltCorp.
Sup Ducks is an avatar-style collection of NFTs featuring hand-drawn ducks. It is a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collection where each collection is painstakingly handcrafted from locally sourced, divinely inspired items that were carefully harvested from a free-range, organic plot of ether.
Franky Aguilar, commonly known on social media as frankienines created SupDucks. His idea was to create an avatar-type NFT collection where all elements comprising the different characters are hand-drawn. He teamed up with MegaVaultCorp to bring SupDucks to life.
Because of Aguilar’s successful career as an artist, SupDucks benefit from increased attention from the NFT community. Social media channels are bursting with activity surrounding the drop of duck NFTs, and subsequently, the moment all ducks sold out.
Ducks are hatched from eggs. In essence, collectors who bought an NFT before all ducks sold out, chose what type of egg they wanted to buy, which then determined the rarity of their duck. The determining characteristics for each duck are selected from an on-chain set of traits and random numbers.
The Sup Ducks dashboard introduces its users or visitors to the website. The avatar-style sup duck head welcomes visitors and first-time users with the message.

According to the collection’s official website, there are a total of 10,000 duck Non-Fungible Token (NFT), and they have all sold out during the primary sale.

- 16 backgrounds
- 18 skins
- 38 clothes
- 38 hats
- 27 mouths
- 27 eyes

The Sup Ducks collection is painstakingly handcrafted from locally sourced, divinely inspired items that were carefully harvested from a free-range, organic plot of ether. Brainchild celebrated artist Franky Aguilar spoke about how each duck was procedurally generated from a collection of hand-drawn items.
Each SupDuck egg is genetically constructed the moment a transaction is sent. They use an on-chain set of traits and random numbers and they give it a couple of minutes to hatch.
A group of ducks swimming in the water is called a raft. That trivia is on the house!

"I'm the Creative Director and co-founder of nameless™, a new NFT minting platform for brands and celebrities, but being creative with my own NFT projects is something that I love to do as well. While I'm quite busy with my new NFT startup ventures, it's important that I continue to create and share art with the metaverse, and hopefully bring a little happiness to people"
The inspiration behind the 2021 Sup Ducks NFT project came from Aguilar's fans on Twitter.
"Some of my Twitter followers are actually the ones that inspired this art project reboot-- I did my first original Sup Duck NFT mint in 2019 on an iOS app called Editional and the project attracted a significant following. With this 2021 NFT art drop, each Sup Duck NFT offers up a funky and dope personality that will hopefully brighten up someone's day. It's time the art world lets loose and gets a little silly-- That's what this project is all about" - Aguilar said.
