Who are we, you may ask?
We are the Red Panda Squad, the cutest and fluffiest creatures landing soon on Solana. Hand-drawn by our very talented and accomplished artist JK.
We have generated 10,000 red panda variations, from stressed business pandas to ultra-rare dark hooded pals. The art is supported by a thorough technical foundation, built-up by our in-house engineer with over 15 years of experience in software and web development.
The Red Panda Story
The Red Pandas lived a happy life on Ailurus, a thriving planet in the heart of the ETH galaxy. Everything was well in the community, until it was plagued by a civil conflict: the gas war. With no funds to spend, food supplies ran short and infrastructure broke down. Word spread about the poor pandas, with only 10,000 left over on Ailurus. One day, a big-hearted fellow named SBF heard about the devastated lands that the pandas inhabited, and flew them all out to planet Solana. Making their arrival in two weeks, the Red Pandas are looking forward to meeting their new caregivers.
For every Red Panda that is minted, we are donating $10 to a wildlife charity organisation that supports endangered species, such as red pandas.
A Rigorous Technical Foundation
While quality art is important, we cannot disregard the technical layer that supports an NFT project. Our goal during minting day is to ensure a smooth launch with no website crashes or wallet issues. Our lead developer has many years in the game, from handling high-traffic websites and large scale operations to building and supporting many Solana and Rust-based projects.
The minting process will be tested rigorously prior to launch to handle high traffic upon launch day. Additionally, we have partnered with an infrastructure provider for a private cluster to avoid any RPC issues during the mint.
Building Our Future
The Red Panda Squad is here to develop a vital branch to the Solana ecosystem. While the space is still young, development has been moving at an extremely rapid rate: from advanced DeFi protocols to play-to-earn games.
In order for the space to continue its growth and raise awareness, RPS aims to establish long term partnerships with many of these protocols, creating a mutual layer of support. We are in talks with several projects — stay tuned for upcoming announcements.
Once the Red Panda NFTs have been minted, the first era of the Red Panda DAO will be initiated. It’s objective: become a key pillar in the Solana community, where Red Panda holders will hold shared governance rights in goals such as project incubation, mutual investment and overall project development. In parallel, we initiate the integration of the RPS in the Solana metaverse, covered in the next section.
Red Pandas in the Metaverse
A key objective for the Red Panda Squad is releasing our in-house developed Red Panda RPG. Holders of the Red Panda NFT will get access to our game where they can use use their red panda to discover the planet of Solana, making friends, battling enemies and gaining experience on their panda. Users will be rewarded with our native SPL token, as well as custom NFTs. We want to bring a premium NFT gaming experience to Solana.
The Red Panda DAO will have a critical role in the development of the game. Decisions on the mechanics of the game as well as business aspects will be voted on by the members of the RPS DAO.
