The Picaroons

The Picaroons is a 10,000 generated created by Captainfly on the Ethereum .[1][2]

The Picaroons are 10,000 pirate NFTs whose designs were patterned to take their forms after the 16th-century pirates whose bravery lives on in these NFTs with rare Royal, Golden & Ghostly mole-like appearances and are available for trading on the OpenSea.[3]

Overview


The Picaroons is a new pirate NFT collectible launched in spring 2022 as a 10,000 randomly generated art, skillfully designed by the ecosystem's artist and muralist Alex Lucas.

According to the Picaroons' website, the NFT project is a consequential build-up after its artist launched an NFT named "Mischief Revenge", which gave a pictorial clue to the public of an NFT related to sea, sea creatures, sailing, pirates, and other animals.

With the tag on its Medium "The Lull Before the Storm", the Picaroons NFT introduced what a team member described as: "100% NFT vagabond animals of the high metaver-sea.."

Fictional History

The Picaroons NFTs date its fictional existence in the metaverse Sea to some 1665.

This story tells of how eight running animals mysteriously discovered themselves unexpectedly adrift on a pirate ship - which is referred to as (The Mischief’s Revenge) - the Picaroon's very first NFT.

According to the Picaroon's fiction, there were human pirates aboard this ship, but they died of some plague. After the death of the Huma Pirates, these eight animals took the challenge of sailing the ship and discovering RARITIES and TREASURES.

As these animals engaged in sailing and discovering, they became what the ecosystem described as :

the invincible, the irascible & the most inspiring Picaroons - Team Member

The story continues with their NFT collectors joining these animals in their search for gems, biscuits, and love.[4]

The Picarrons' NFTs consist of pirate-looking animals with shades of diverse rarities. The NFT has its major forms in creatures such as:

  • Moles
  • Rats
  • Bats
  • Dogs
  • Rabbits, etc.

The Picaroons' NFTs are listed on the OpenSea as a verified tradable asset, which can be bought by sellers, buyers, curators, and/or NFT collectors for a floor price of 0.119 $ETH as of April 20, 2022.[5]
