The accomplishments of the team make PROOF and Moonbirds a success and gives confidence to their current and future holders. 

PROOF Collective

Proof Collective was Kevin’s most significant foray into the NFT space. As Twitter user, Cryptolocity explained: “Many of the top founders, artists and collectors in the space believe deeply in Kevin’s vision, and bought passes with 0 intention of selling them”. Collectively, the members hold close to 154,000 NFTs, including several blue chips like CryptoPunks, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Meebits, and Art blocks.

In order to become a member of the PROOF collective, individuals must hold the PROOF Pass. These NFTs grant access to PROOF’s private Discord, early access to the PROOF podcast, in-person events, and more. For these reasons, these NFTs are highly sought-after and currently have a 99 ETH floor.

PROOF Collective has also launched an NFT collection called Grails. This project was created in collaboration with 20 artists, the collection features 20 unique pieces of art. These were free-to-mint and only available to the Proof Collective pass holders. The artists included some of the most popular figures in the space like Hackatao, Mike Shinoda, Larva Labs, and Gary Vaynerchuk, among others.

Moonbirds is Proof’s second original NFT project and first 10K PFP collection. With Proof’s rich history, Moonbirds were highly coveted even before they dropped.

Moonbirds NFT Utility

The utility that Moonbirds provides is another reason Moonbirds are so successful. These are utility-enabled NFTs that offer more than a cute PFP avatar. Moonbird holders will have access to the PROOF Discord. Holders will have the opportunity to interact with PROOF founders as well as other members of the Collective. PROOF’s members are some of the most well-known names in NFT space. Many Moonbird holders see this is an excellent opportunity to network and learn more about the future of NFTs and crypto.

Moonbird holders will have access to Moonbird-related drops and Parliament meetups. Future Proof projects will be available to holders including “Project Highrise,” the soon-to-be metaverse.

Nesting is another important aspect of the Moonbird ecosystem. You can “lock” your bird and nest it within your wallet to receive additional benefits. This is similar to the staking mechanisms that are offered by many projects. In this instance, however, your bird will be in your wallet. However, your NFT cannot be sold during nesting.

The longer you nest, the higher your NFT will be able to move up the tiers. Higher tiers will Include cool stickers and merch. Collectors will likely keep their NFTs due to the attractive benefits. Cryptolocity pointed out that this could even lead to a supply shock.

Kevin wrote last month, “We’re redesigning @moonbirds_xyz different… We want to reward long-term holders with the lion’s share. Your diamond hands (wings) will unlock utility and benefits in the future.”
