Breaking NFT News: Taproot Wizards’ Bitcoin Ordinals Sale Postponed

And speaking of Bitcoin: Ordinals. Specifically cats. More specifically, quantum cats.

The anticipated Taproot Wizards’ Bitcoin Ordinals NFT sale was postponed yesterday due to technical issues.

The Quantum Cats whitelist was announced for Monday, and was meant to last two hours. It was supposed to be followed by the public mint, lasting until the collection sold out.

However, the team moved the mint to February 1. The whitelist phase will last five more hours, enabling people in different time zones to “mint comfortably.”

We’re postponing the mint to Thursday, Feb 1, 12pm ET.

The whitelist phase will continue for 5 hours, until 5pm ET, and the public phase will start at 6pm ET.

Co-founder Udi Wertheimer explained that the minting website did not work as well as expected. That said, during the time it did work, almost 1,000 cats were minted successfully.

All funds are safe, he added.

The cats will be distributed to wallets on Friday after the mint.

Pudgy Penguins Reveals Its IP Licensing Platform

The team behind the popular collection Pudgy Penguins announced that Pudgy Toys has opened licensing for its second chapter.

“The Chapter 2 Pudgy Toy licensing deal is for those Pudgy penguins that will be included in our new line of toys.”

Following the success of Chapter 1, the platform says:

“We are excited to offer more licensing opportunities to our community to bring their Pudgy Penguins to life through Toys.”

Notably, this is facilitated by the team’s very own intellectual property (IP) licensing platform, OverpassIP.

Furthermore, Pudgy Penguins and Lil Pudgy owners can join the process over the next two weeks. This way, they can transform their MFT penguins into physical toys.

The website also notes that owners who successfully join the program will be able to grant licenses to renowned brands for product or media incorporation.

Submitting an NFT for selection does not mean that it will automatically be selected, though.

For the chance to bring your Pudgy Penguin or Lil Pudgy to life, follow the instructions in the video below. You have 14 days to submit.

Additionally, OverpassIP has added so-called Pudgy Rods as multipliers for licensing deals. It automatically applies if the Penguin and the Rod are in the same wallet and calculated at payout.

“The Pudgy Rods have developed a layer of utility and will serve as a multiplier for certain licensing deals, on-chain drops, or claims we may do in the future,” the team said.
