Thank you for being an early adopter of Hedgehog Markets!

ICYMI, we recently announced the our first NFT collection, the Hedgie Hogs!

TLDR: Hedgie Hog NFTs

Mint Date: Nov 24, 2021
Mint Time: 1200 ET / 1700 UTC
Mint Price: 0.5 SOL
Mint Supply: 5,000
Total Supply: 10,000
Location: https://hedgehog.markets/nft

The first major utility for Hedgie Hogs is this: users can stake their NFT to enter exclusive no-loss competitions.

But wait — what about my Beta Hog?

When Hedgehog Markets launched our devnet platform in Q2 2021, we rewarded 281 of our users with a Beta Tester Collectible — also known as Beta Hog or BHOG. You’ve probably seen this lil’ guy hanging around:

Beta Hog Collectible

We are ever grateful for our users who were early to the platform, and have been with us since Day 1. BHOG collectibles were granted to:

  • Top 100 addresses on the Overall Devnet Competition ROI leaderboard
  • Everyone that submitted an entry to the 🎨creative-contest
  • Users who submitted a Bug or Suggest form and helped us capture important data points for how we could improve our product

BHOG was originally issued pre-Metaplex. We want BHOG holders to feel good, and feel excited, about their collectibles — so we’re going to send you Metaplex-standard versions!

On Friday, November 19th at 17:00 UTC, we will take a snapshot of all BHOG token holders. Holding 1 BHOG entitles you to receive 1 new Beta Hog NFT that complies with the Metaplex standard. Beta Hog NFTs will be airdropped to BHOG holders on Sunday, November 21st at 17:00 UTC.

Beta Hogs are not part of the 10,000 Hedgie Hogs collection but will grant holders the same access and ability to stake in competitions on Hedgehog Markets.

Platform Utility

Hedgie Hog (and Beta Hog) NFT holders will gain access to a special Discord channel where YOU decide the no-loss competitions exclusive to NFT Holders. Once competitions are live, you can stake your Hedgie Hogs (and Beta Hogs) to enter. To begin, these competitions will run in the existing no-loss format; for each correct outcome, users increase their game token ROI and climb the leaderboard for a chance at the competition prize pool.

We’re really excited about this feature. This is a way to give our users a say in platform development and a say in what you play! Our goal is to empower our community and is one additional step towards what decentralization may look and feel like for Hedgehog Markets.

  • Airdrop to BHOG Holders: Sunday November 21st at 17:00 UTC
