Day 0: The Challange
Week 1: Building the Base
Day 1: The first Tweet
CryptoPoo was supposed to be a joke project to show how full of Shit Logan Paul is, but it became so much more.
Day 3: Tech Architecture
Planning is 80% of the work, therefore we started right away with designing the smart contract architecture
Day 5: Domain & Liteppaer
People needed to learn about us so the first thing we needed is a website and a whitepaper. We finished both in 5 days
Started as a Joke
Our socials started blowing up and the community wanted us to build something more serious.
"Lets use crypto and NFTs to simulate how capitalism is killing animals"
Lets build something meaningful
We decided to double down and build world-class crypto game in 30 days
Redefining NFT Gaming
The community wanted something more serious so we worked day and night and finished all of the UI and concept in less than a week.
Over 100 collabs

Day 7: Showing the team
Nothing better than a whiteboard explainer. At the time we still had bred feature however the game concept was more or less finished.
