TRAVEL BACK IN TIME TO THE PREHISTORIC AGE
Dinosaurs are brought to life on the Solana Blockchain. We’ve planted our collection of 650 unique NFTs on an entirely different sector in the marathon. 3 species will be minted and the rest airdropped for FREE to holders! More species are coming…
We know for decades paleontologists heavily believed that dinosaurs were savage and mindless beasts; however, utilizing advanced technology we have discovered that dinosaurs were far more in tune than us normal humans could possibly fathom.
Key takeaways (for the Too-Long-Didn’t-Read Dino)
– First 5-in-1 project on Solana. 5 species of dinosaurs. 500 NFTs of each. Yes… 5 times more design work than your usual project.
– Total supply 650. We will mint 3 species and then airdrop +3 species for free to our holders. Meteorites NFTs for whitelisted.
- For mint: T-Rex, Argentinosaurus, and Triceratops
- Aidropped for free: Velociraptor and Stegosaurus. More species to be developed by our artists after well-deserved rest.
– Money raised will be used to:
- Keep creating and airdropping new dinosaurs species to holders for free (DAO will decide).
- Fund paleontologist endeavors and dinosaur awareness.
- Fund a project outside of crypto: A social platform with a community of creators to the most intricate scavenger hunts, riddles, and games (the earnings will buy floor)
There are 5 different species in existence within 65 Million Years, each with their own accessories designed specifically for that species. All of the dinosaur artwork is bespoke and hand drawn by our artists. We will develop more species after mint.
Each part of the dinosaur artwork has been hand drawn by a popular artist and then digitized. These different parts are then randomly mixed by our generative art code to produce the +200 unique NFTs of each species. Some of the unique and changing parts of the NFTs are: species, patterns, special items from TV shows and movies, eyes, hats, pants, shirts…
The special items have already attracted a lot of interest and are expected to only be found on the rarest Dino’s, so keep your eyes peeled….
It’s started with a pencil
From paper to pixels
Generative art brings them back to life
Stylized on Solana
Immortalize them in your wallet
Our artists are taking a well-deserved rest. After the mint they will start drawing the 6th species to add another airdrop for our holders: Ankylosaurus. The 7th species will be decided by the community. Parasaurolophus? Canotaurus? Spinosaurus? Iguanudon?
The King of dinosaurs. One of the most formidable predators to ever walk the Earth, it had razor sharp teeth the size of bananas and feeds on any other living thing it can catch. Scary.
A herbivore with horns akin to a modern day rhinoceros used for charging others when threatened. It had the largest skull of any land creature housing a larger brain than the other dinosaurs. That doesn’t make it the smartest though, smarty pants.
The biggest dinosaur of them all, it was as long as two double decker buses, standing 70 feet tall and weighing as much as a passenger jet. Size does matter, big boy.
Lightening fast and quickest of all the dinosaurs. Some say Usain Bolt is descended from these ones. Intelligent and hunting in packs, velociraptors are something to be reckoned with.
With a brain the size of a pea, stegosaurus makes up for what it lacks in brain power with armour. Diamond shaped spines down its back and a club-like tail provided defence for this herbivore. Nobody knows the colour of its spines. Or do we…

3. 65 Million Year future (important):
More species AIRDROPPED TO HOLDERS FOR 0 SOL:
Dinosaurs lay eggs, we really hope you aren’t just finding out. Our holders don’t get priority access to future drops… THEY RECEIVE THE SPECIES DIRECTLY FOR 0 SOL. We will be airdropping species to our holders.
DINO DAO. We chose 5 species to start with. We also defined the 6th one that the artists will start drawing after a well deserved rest (Ankylosaurus). The 7th will be decided by the community in a DAO. Parasaurolophus? Canotaurus? Spinosaurus? Iguanudon? We want to migrate all dinosaurs species to the Solana chain, just because we love these creatures. All airdrops will be FREE for Dino holders, our artists can’t wait.
FINANCE PALEONTOLOGIC ENDEAVORS:
All over the world there are organizations that manage paleontology expeditions. 65 Million Years will give grants to several organizations to help advance humanity’s expertise in giant vertebrates. As you taken note, we love our dinosaurs, and so we plan to do general donations and target lucky members of the 65 Million Years community. The first step to achieve this goal is going to be helping the amazing group: (https://www.bbpaleo.org/).
Not only the experts will get to enjoy Dinosaurs, we will also work to finance dino-related activities for the children. Through the help of our community, we will fund school trips to museums, after-school arts and craft programs, and even get them gear to go on their wonderful expeditions!
A SCAVENGER HUNT MARKETPLACE:
Cryptocurrencies have made the commerce of ideas easier than ever. You may have noticed we like riddles and scavenger hunts. It started millions of years ago, we were just hitting the tip of the iceberg in the cryptoverse and we come across this funny, creative guy. He would organize treasure hunts that would send you through different sites, Telegram groups, and following clues to finally arrive at the destination.
We will hold daily quick competitions and start with one large scavenger hunt. The latter will take place over several days and will allow for members to participate with a team. We hope to be the to-go place where people test their skills at problem-solving and have fun with friends. We will emerge from the depths of crypto, to the freedom that is the internet.
This marketplace will be where people can post their riddles, go look for famous treasure hunt creators to enjoy some deep thinking while looking through the metaverse for clues to the next find. You always want look for the one with the best reputation because that’s a solid challenge, while others may want to give a chance to the new project offering art-themed combos of riddles. The art will be free, but we will offer a donation button if anyone wants to show appreciation for the artists’ work. The marketplace will also serve the purpose of finding talent for businesses. Human Resource departments can use the riddles to help to assess their potential hires problem-solving skills.
If you are feeling excited about the project, you are not alone. We pulled 12958734583459 an all-nighter for this.
