Crypto Kidz Club – Cardano NFT
An event-based project which offers us the excitement and mind-boggling experience of puzzle solving and decoding.
I’ve always been a fan of puzzles, riddles and complex problems. Mainly because of the excitement that the whole experience entails. You know, the moment you get that adrenaline rush, as if you have deciphered a governement secret.
Crypto Kidz Club is a project, whose concept is based off of puzzles, cryptography and internet sleuthing. In short, events that are intended to engage and keep the community entertained. Now according to the team, the project was an inspiration by their personal ways of enjoyment. I don’t know if you’re aware, but this reminds me of the project Horrocubes, which is involved with puzzle solving as well. Who knows, maybe we’ll see some sort of collaboration?
Furthermore, if you are no fan of problem solving though, fear not, because the team has their NFT collection in store for you (more in the Artwork section below). However, there’s already a collection of digital apparel in circulation. And so far, its role is kept a secret. Maybe for you to figure it out, who knows?
Finally, I want to note that the team’s idea to build an event-based project of such concept is really interesting. And, as much as I would like to see more details on the connection between the collections and the events, I am afraid that it’s mystery could be part of the concept as well.
*Note, the team is undergoing a restructuring of their vision, based on the feedback of the community.
The core team is formed by four members and as much as the information in the website and medium shows otherwise – they are not afraid of doxxing and actually are.
In particular, Dice – the project lead, has experience in the fields of finance, sales and management. Making him the perfect candidate to scale the project. Next, Badger, helps the team to build and sustain their community and lore. Further, we have 3ntr0py, the “Puzzle Master” – the genius behind the puzzles. Hence the epithet. Also, he is an anthropologist and “code junky”, as he states. Last but not least, there’s Blinc, the digital artist behind the anime-style Crypto Kidz.
As a bonus, Ignacio J. Durruty an artist from Argentina who has become a script writer, is helping the team to find their lore direction. And for development and minting issues, the team has a partnership with Le4f Agency and Yepple respectively.
*Note, the team is part of the ADA Ninjas support pad.
Discord & Twitter
The project’s community is still quite small, but rightly so as the team has a goal to gather puzzle minded community members anyway. And taking into account my experience so far in the CNFT space, there are not many funs of puzzles. However, events tend to attract attention, so with clever promotion of the events, we can expect the numbers to be soon higher. Now, concerning the social media, Twitter and Discord are your main tools to get information and have fun. Especially Discord, where the puzzle games take place and community interacts.

Concerning the artwork, I would like to focus on the two collections that are current available (one already in circulation). The first one contains digital apparel, which look realistic with emphasis on detail. On the other hand, we have the PFP collection (minting TBA) illustrating the Crypto Kidz in anime style. As a hint, this collection will also have its own developing lore pre and post mint.
I would like to take a moment here and urge the team to add some more transparency on what is the connection between these two collections. What I mean is that the art style is different in both and the style can often define and make the project recognizable to the public.
You can see some examples of the artwork below:
The website could have much more information in my opinion. Something close to the project’s medium article to be honest. This is a part that holds me on saying it’s informative enough. Further, I love the color choice, which I can safely say it matches the artwork. However, in terms of design it can definitely be improved without of course losing the needed artwork exposure.
*Note, the Twitter and Discord buttons are not working, which makes it hard for someone to enter the community via the website.
If you are looking for a roadmap, check the Puzzlemap on the CKC’s website. It is an artistic way to introduce us to their main future goals. Unfortunately, there are no details here, and I could not find any other on Discord either. Also, there are no timelines. However, this version is the first and we’re waiting for an update from the team.
Check the roadmap here.
Crypto Kidz Club is a project with the ambition to introduce us to innovative and entertaining events based on cryptography and puzzles. Pretty sweet so far. And the main goal is quite clear, but there are concept details to set straight. Additionally, even though their community is still small, I wouldn’t say it poses a problem, because the team is in search of the right members to grow with. However, it can be a problem in their soon to happen minting phase (Q4 2022). Let’s see if it grows more till then or they’ll need to postpone. Finally, the artwork is variable and the connection between the two collections is confusing.
