Genesis BitCats

The first BitCat, the Wizard was on a mission to safe the universe. On its journey, it discovered lots of frens along the way, which joined the Wizard on its mission. These 81 Genesis BitCats have all been carefully crafted by hand and are the base of the new generation of cats, that began spawning in December 2021. If you are still looking for a cute pixel art cat fren, that will live forever, then you are lucky, as the minting for GenBitCats is still open!

Timeline &
Roadmap

There are several ideas for the roadmap and things, that would be great to integrate into the collection. BitCats is a long term project and created by a very small team. Due to that, the scope of this project is small and the development paste rather slow. New features and work on the project will continue for years to come, however.
