uwu Quest is an interactive stamp trading game heavily inspired by rwx quest! In uwu Quest, players must collect and turn in specific amounts and types of stamps to win various prizes!
This first season of uwu Quest will be centered around Systema Solaris stamps. The stamps will be distributed to everyone holding 5 or more uwus as of 5/26 (snapshot on block 14850400) and to Systema Solaris auction bidders. We’d like to give a massive thank you to robekworld for being a huge influence behind the idea of stamp quests and giving us his blessing to launch this project.
It’s been a long time coming, but we’re super happy to announce our first artist megacollab: Systema Solaris! Nine Solar System themed collab pieces will be auctioned off on Foundation throughout the course of next week.
Supporting artists is one of uwucrew’s foundational values that is threaded into everything we do. Back in October, we had the opportunity to do just that by organizing a collab between Laur and eight other artists in the discord. While we had initially started with the intention of a Halloween theme, the megacollab had evolved into Systema Solaris. Nine planets, nine artists, it made sense.
Our nine featured artists have each created special uwu derivatives drawing inspiration from one of the nine planets. Each artist was randomly assigned their planet and picked an uwu they or one of the team members owned. The instructions were to keep it on theme, have fun, and be creative.
All nine artists have amazingly unique styles that take this project to another level. These artists are some of the very first "Verified NFT Artists" that made a home in our discord and community last September, and we'd love to support them by showcasing their art in Systema Solaris.
New Partnership: MEGAMI
We are extremely proud to announce our partnership between uwucrew and MEGAMI! As enthusiasts and fans of all things anime, we could not be more thrilled to establish this connection with such a wonderful and proven team and lead artist, Naoki Saito.
Aiko Virtual joins the crew to become the 3rd uwulabs family project! They soon let uwulabs family project NFT holders claim allowlist to mint!
When we started working on uwucrew, as a team we decided to form the group of uwulabs and begin promoting a strong art culture within the Anime art NFT space as much as possible. This began with uwucrew, and then continued into building and helping maintain Persona Lamps, and then Killer GF. uwu has grown into a massive community of collectors and artists, and we’re extremely proud to expand our vision and reach through various projects and communities!
Today, uwulabs is excited to share the uwu art license. It’s designed to encourage derivative works but also respect the holder’s rights, as we believe their NFT is a representation of them!
The uwucrew NFT collection will be following this art license, but we encourage other projects to adopt the uwu license as well!
Today marks ONE WHOLE year since the Waifusion community handoff, the precursor to the formation of uwulabs and the uwucrew NFT collection! Included in this article is a brief recap of the Waifusion story and how far we’ve come, a small token of appreciation for new and old Waifu holders, and some more details about our future plans which include a brand new collection for all Waifusion holders!
What is Waifusion?
Waifusion was created a little over a year ago by an anonymous team as a generative collection launching on the ETH and BSC networks as separate and unique assets, comprising a total of 16,384 name-changeable Waifus.
uwulabs will be forming a long-term partnership with GASHO2.0 to offer our community direct, discounted access to ordering high-quality prints (for any NFT) and other benefits!
uwulabs is a team formed around developing and building the ecosystem around uwucrew and more. The uwulabs team focuses on building for uwucrew, Killer GF, and Persona Lamps, on top of providing resources in multiple ways for all uwulabs Family Collab projects.
It’s been a little over 6 months since uwucrew first launched in early September 2021! Since then, uwulabs has grown from the small team behind the uwucrew project to a much larger team advising and helping launch several anime-themed projects under the uwulabs family!
As shown in Roadmap V2 two weeks ago, we have a lot of exciting things planned for 2022 designed to provide value to our believers and expand the uwulabs family. In the meantime, we’ve also been scaling up our team with new members and onboarding new talent to help us accomplish our goals.
In order to better align our expanded team and to continue launching more awesome uwulabs projects, which include future uwucrew plans, we’re proposing a slight increase in uwucrew secondary market royalties.
The vote offers options of increasing the royalties from the current 2.5% to the following across all platforms:
Since we launched our roadmap v1 back in September, uwucrew and uwulabs has taken a vastly different direction from what we originally envisioned, becoming an art focused brand and community as well as a launchpad for other anime projects such as Persona Lamps and Killer GF. On that note, we also decided to revamp our v1 roadmap with new plans and goals!
To reflect our art-focused community, we wanted this Roadmap V2 drop to be more than just a wall of text — which is why we’ve commissioned Benangbaja to visualize and bring life to Roadmap V2!
All addresses holding an uwucrew on 2/28, 3pm EST or block 14296680 will be receiving an edition of the following Roadmap V2 illustration by Benangbaja on Polygon! (Don’t panic if you haven’t received on yet, it may take a day to reach you — Also remember to check your hidden folder) Each part of the illustration below represents an item covered in Roadmap V2!
Since launch, we have had a portion of funds allocated for usage by the community however they see fit. But we have yet to set it up in a manner where it can actually be discussed on and controlled by the community. With that being said, we are excited to announce that we will be creating a separate multi-signature wallet for these allocated funds, and will help prepare a community majority setup of custody!
This process will be referred to as uwuDAO (not to be confused with daowo).At uwulabs, we have roadmap items and goals that we target internally as we work on uwucrew and assist with other projects. However, we understand there may be goals that the community would like to build/fund that may not require the main uwulabs team in order to execute.
In order to provide our community with the resources they may need, we will be initiating a multi-signature wallet with a 3/5 setup, where a majority of the wallet signers will be elected by the community. By having a majority community-owned set up, we hope that the uwucrew community can perform more independently, and create for the community in new and different ways from what the uwulabs team has plans for.
When we decided to rebrand to uwulabs as a team and shift our focus towards building uwucrew, we’ve always had one core principle in mind. The art comes first and is the top priority for what we want to support and foster in this space. NFTs as an industry and platform have onboarded and changed the lives of countless artists, allowing them to express themselves freely and create in new ways. We are very proud of the community that uwucrew has formed, consisting of several well-known and beginner anime artists who publish on Foundation and OpenSea, along with community members and collectors who support creators as well.
