What is the Chimpers Generative Collection? 

The Chimpers Generative Collection is a community-driven pixelated 2D art project with a total intended supply of 5,555 randomly generated chimpanzees (chimpers). The Chimpers is a ground-breaking character collection brought to life by renowned pixel artist, Timpers, who is also the owner of BAYC #7010. According to its team, Chimpers will become a brand new Web3 adventure story filled with incredible art and breathtaking lore. 

Story / Background 

The following is the original background story and plot behind the Chimpers collection which can also be found on the official Chimpers.xyz website. 

THE CHIMPERS WERE MYSTERIOUSLY BORN THROUGH SCIENTIFIC EXPERIMENTS THAT WENT UNNOTICED BY THE REST OF THE POPULACE…

THE APES TOILED WITH THE HUMANS FOR CONTROL FOR DECADES, BUT EVENTUALLY, THEY WERE ABLE TO RECLAIM THEIR LAND AND PUSH THE HUMANS OUT FOREVER. BUT BEFORE THEY WERE VANQUISHED, THE HUMANS HAD TO DISCARD THE EVIDENCE OF WHAT THEY CREATED. THEY FIRED THE CHIMPERS DNA INTO THE VOIDS OF SPACE, HOPING THAT THEIR CREATION WOULD NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY.

HOWEVER, DESTINY WOULD NOT ALLOW IT. CENTURIES PASSED AND NEW WORLDS FORGED. THE CHIMPERS EXTENDED ACROSS THE GALAXIES, SPECIES WERE FORMED, AND A NEW AGE BEGAN. 

WITH 100 GENESIS CHIMPERS FIRST INHABITING THE WORLD, NOW, 5,555 CHIMPERS EXIST ACROSS THE INTERGALACTIC WARP. A WORLD OF WARRIORS, GODS, DEMONS, MAGES, AND SPACE TRAVELLERS STANDING AT THE CUSP OF AN EMPIRE AT THE BRINK OF WAR

Utility

According to its team, Chimpers have considered the community during every step of the development process because they are the most important part of the project – without them, there can be no adventure.

All Chimpers holders will be able to join the community on their epic adventure to quest and uncover the mysteries of the Chimpverse. Most importantly, they plan on uniting to create a universe that will be remembered by all for decades to come. The exact details behind the various utilities are yet to be disclosed. 

Roadmap

The Chimpers Ethos has always been to under-promise and over-deliver. They are able do this with their collectors through mystery, surprise as well as rewards (as can be seen through the previous collections from Timpers). Collectors of Timpers will be able to expect more of the same type of utilities and surprises as they journey through the next adventure together to create their own multimedia brand. The exact details are purposefully left out as a part of the appeal and mystery surrounding this NFT project. 

Team

Timpers, Artist

Timpers first got into graphic design using photoshop in 2014 creating designs for social media. He ended up honing his craft and learning more before starting his own YouTube channel creating hundreds of tutorials on how to use Photoshop while building up his own community of over 40,000 subscribers. 

During this time, Timpers experimented with many different styles of art and animation but ended up connecting the most with pixel art. He grew up playing Pokemon, and most of Timpers’ inspiration came from retro pixel-based games and anime films.

After finding out about the NFT world, it wasn’t long before Timpers was able to form new connections. His first 1 of 1 NFT was sold in February 2021 on Foundation, and since then his life would never be the same. This is when he began working with projects such as RTFKT, KOLECTIV, and INTERLEAVE, and he even had his own artwork features in the BAYC x Rolling Stone Limited Edition Zine, and Timpers’ also had the pleasure of working as one of the iconic artists behind the NounsDAO project. 

Since then, Timpers has been blessed to be able to work on his own NFT projects including TBAC, a derivative story about the BAYC apes. In addition to this, Timpers has also created a 100 genesis Chimpers collection before working on his current project, which will be his 5,555 generative collection named Chimpers.

Insight, Writer and Community Manager

Insight is the twin brother of Timpers, and he is the writer and community manager behind Chimpers. Insight first joined the NFT space in June 2021, and he worked alongside Timpers to help build the lore behind the TBAC world which ended up sparking the creation of his very own e-book based on the story behind the Chimpeyverse. 

Joey, Strategy and Operations

Joey founded a regulatory website 20 years ago when he saw a gap in the market to help individuals and businesses who were looking for information and a place to network. That online community was the first of its kind and it’s still the largest in the world offering products, education, and consultancy services.

Joey first joined the NFT space in February of 2021, where he ended up minting three Bored Apes and threw himself into the degen lifestyle of an NFT collector and trader. He has since then absorbed knowledge from numerous people and various projects from the NFT community. He is now using all of his energy and experience to support the TBAC and Chimpers projects from strategic direction as well as the small details of day-to-day operations.  

Collaborations

All of the partnerships and collaborations between Chimpers and other NFT projects have been publicized and announced on Twitter. It is apparent that Chimpers has been focusing on only working with the cream of the crop projects of the NFT space. The official partners of Chimpers are GHXSTS, Doodles, NounsDAO, RTFKT, 3Landers, deekaymotion, FoundersDAO, BAYC, Proof Collective, and CoolCats








Marketing / Community

The Chimpers team has been focusing on recruiting members from well established NFT communities including those of Doodles, BAYC, RTFKT and 3Landers to name a few by giving the holders from these various groups whitelist raffle opportunities. 

The Chimpers has amassed a total of over 56k followers on Twitter at the time of writing, and there is a lot of hype and FOMO surrounding this project. There is only a mid-level of engagement when looking at some of the more recent Twitter posts, and this is likely due to the fact that the Chimpers team has been purposefully avoiding engagement farming tactics in order to build up a stronger and more organic community. 

How to get on WL

Anyone who holds one of Timper’s previous NFT projects will be eligible to mint Chimpers during its mint day. 

Those who are on the Chimplist will be able to check how many Chimpers they are eligible to mint prior to the official launch date. 

Listed below are the previous collections from Timpers that will allow holders to mint at least one Chimpers on May 20th: 

 

Analysis

Bullish case

Chimpers has an incredibly competent team with a proven track record. The previous two collections from Timpers’ speak for themselves as one collection has a floor price of over 4 ETH and the other collection has a floor price of 45 ETH at the time of writing. The mint price of 0.07 ETH to mint a Chimpers is extremely competitive for being an NFT project of this caliber, so it is no question whether or not this collection will be able to sell out. Commentators believe this collection is likely to reach a floor price of 0.6 ETH, which is approximately 20% of the current floor price of The Boring Ape Chronicles. The 20% formula can be roughly seen with other high-profile projects and the later collections that dropped. (ie: BAYC and MAYC, MAYC and BAKC, Proof Collective and Moonbirds, etc).

Reservations

There is little to no reservation when it comes to Chimpers due to the incredibly low yet fair mint price of 0.07 ETH. It is likely that anyone who is able to mint a Chimpers will be in profit, the question is not if they will be making a profit, but rather, how much.
