You can now give generative Wapuus a custom name. It’s both a fun new feature and it gives us the opportunity to experiment in a couple of ways.
First, we were able to limit this ability to our POAP holders. As part of the NFT Wapuu launch, we dropped a special collectors pin/badge to holders that purchased in the first 72 hours. It was a way to say thank you. By whitelisting the “OG Collector” badge holders, we are able to show one of the benefits of using POAPs for an event.
Secondly, the Naming app actually allows us to write directly to the blockchain. This functionality shows how much flexibility and control is possible with Smart Contracts and NFTs – change the metadata by writing to the contract from the app.
Name Your Wapuu
Sounds complicated, right? We were actually able to make a really simple interface. Now, when you visit the Wapuu app, you will see a new “Name” option in the menu. Verify your wallet and any eligible Wapuus will be listed. Select the Wapuu you want to name, enter your custom name, and submit.
Check it out in action!
As a collector, it is just a rad way to interact with your Wapuu, and to leave your mark for future Wapuu holders. It’s available to the early collectors today at the cost of gas. We will be making this feature available publicly to all Wapuu holders in a future release. Want an opportunity to name a Wapuu? Mint a Wapuu from our app, or purchase one from our collection on OpenSea.
We will also be adding the code for this feature to our GitHub repository. Web3 WP is more than an NFT project and we want you to be a part. We would love to hear more about your project and how you are using Web3 technologies on your website. Join the discussion on Discord, Twitter, or leave us a comment.
