Orcanauts NFT Project set for Launch

Orca will officially launch its Orcanauts NFT project with a two-phase minting process. The majority of the revenue will also be used exclusively for DeFi education for children. 

The team announced on November 25th via their official Medium that the two-phase mint will take place at orcanauts.orca.so. Phase I will begin at 16:00 UTC on November 27th; with Phase II beginning later the same day at 24:00 UTC. The team went on to confirm that they will be dedicating the revenue toward a cause they believe in.

“75% of the mint revenues from Orcanauts will be donated to Aflatoun to develop a DeFi curriculum for kids worldwide.” The announcement goes on to say, “The remaining 25% will go to the artist. So all those who wade into the water in search of an Orcanautical companion, can do so for a good cause!”

This will of course be welcomed by the general crypto community who will understand it as another move to invite further adoption and encourage education for forthcoming generations.

Phase II will be officially open to all of Solana, this is where the whale’s share of the minting will occur with the remaining 7,960 able to minted at a price of 0.7 SOL.
