Every CypherMonks collection is known as a Chapter. Each chapter is associated with a single policy ID on the blockchain and should always be validated. This means all NFTs minted in a chapter share the same policy ID. Each CypherMonk NFT contains a unique set of attributes and some contain what is known as a Rarity. A rarity is an attribute possessed by fewer than 11 CypherMonks across all chapters. Every CypherMonk NFT is designed and created by hand, no algorithms will ever be used. Click here to learn more!

CypherMonk Zero is an Exclusive, a single-policy NFT, meaning it is the only NFT to be minted in the chapter First Contact (which is the earliest chapter containing a CypherMonk and effectively “chapter zero”). His very existance could be considered a rarity, however he possesses the coveted Medallion of Cardano rarity, which he wears religiously with stoic pride.

CypherMonk Zero introduces CypherMonks to the world and the forthcoming release of the first chapter of CypherMonks, set to be minted and announced in October 2021.

On September 12, 2021 in celebration of the Alonzo HFC event, CypherMonk Zero will go up for sale as we usher in the Goguen Era together!
