A hearty howdy to the best community in BSC,
We hope you are in good health and enjoying this opportunity to slow down and relax. Now that Extreme Speed is over, you’ll notice the APY on your farms steadily declining back to normal! Behind the scenes, the development team has been GRINDING full speed ahead to set up this project for success. After tons of calculations, thorough discourse, and a few plates of charcuterie, we are ready to let the Meowth out of the bag about our future:
So without further ado,
THE MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT(s):
GENERATION 2 IS COMING BEFORE MARCH 15th (and probably in the next week!)
What is Generation 2?
We are an ambitious, dynamic development team that learns from our mistakes. From the dawn of the Wynaut project we have had big dreams and the critical self-reflection necessary to actualize them. Part of that reflection process means frequent difficult discussions about how we can do better — not just now, but far into the future. Wynaut and Meowth are two wonderful, secure tokens, but as they were coded by developers no longer on the team they just are not capable of everything we know we can achieve as a project.
So we’ve designed a new token ecosystem from the ground up that improves upon the Wynaut+Meowth ecosystem across the board. Featuring new and more sustainable tokenomics, exciting and innovative use cases, and brand new identities, the Gen 2 tokens are the vessels which will carry our community toward the brilliant future we deserve.
But WHAT are they?
For now we can reveal the details of our first coin… MEOWNAUT!
A nascent species, never before seen in the region! Scientists are baffled at how this little creature came to be, but won’t ask too many questions as it is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE.
Tokenomically, Meownaut will function a lot like the Wynaut token. Meownaut is a reflectionary, deflationary coin, and the impetus of the ecosystem. As the cornerstone of this next phase of the project, Meownaut will have special characteristics that make it highly valuable in our ecosystem. We have been doing calculations behind the scenes and crunching countless numbers to determine what reflect/burn percentage values will be best for the long term vision of the project. While we can’t reveal those values quite yet you can trust that we are working hard to improve upon Wynaut’s formula!
How do I get them?
The Generation 2 token exchange presale will happen on or before March 15 (more details to emerge as the date closes in). On that day, you will be able to convert your Wynaut, Meowth, and Cake into Meownaut!
The conversion ratios are being finalized based on careful calculations taking into consideration market value, they currently stand at:
1 Wynaut = 1 Meownaut
2 Meowth = 1 Meownaut (this might have minor fluctuation depending on price and supply)
1 CAKE = 37 new tokens
E̶x̶p̶e̶c̶t̶e̶d̶ ̶p̶r̶e̶-̶s̶a̶l̶e̶ ̶p̶r̶i̶c̶e̶ ̶=̶ ̶$̶0̶.̶3̶5̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶C̶A̶K̶E̶,̶ ̶$̶0̶.̶0̶4̶5̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶W̶y̶n̶a̶u̶t̶/̶M̶e̶o̶w̶t̶h̶ okay y’all the community really rallied and crushed our estimate in less than a day. We’re going to have to recalculate as Gen 2 release draws closer but the conversion ratios will be the same!
This means Wynaut and Meowth will be your best, least expensive chance at obtaining Meownaut tokens — a major discount over buying through other means.
More details about the presale, including the exact date, the platform it will occur on, and any potential mechanisms we implement to maintain the. fairness+sustainability of the exchange will come in another article before it happens!
How do they work?
Our resident wondercoder Prefix has crafted something truly innovative that makes the whole Generation 2 project run like a dream
CODENAME UNOVA is the new Extended Masterchef of our token ecosystem. With increased functionality like:
- Claim All (in one transaction, this claims from all farms and pools and puts the rewards into your wallet)
- Compound All (in one transaction, this claims from all farms and pools and puts the rewards back into your pool)
- It is much easier to establish relationships with partner coins under UNOVA
- Its modular structure means farms will be more dynamic under UNOVA
It’s a genius piece of coding that facilitates the entire ecosystem at every level.
While the full functionality won’t make sense to y’all until we reveal our other Gen 2 Tokens and their associated usecases, we have been hard at work priming visual aids that illustrate our vision for this exciting next stage of the process that will be revealed soon.
What’s the Utility?
If brainstorms are a thing, the development team has done a category 6 brain hurricane to determine how we can make our Generation 2 Tokens more than a token. We want our tokens to be passports to a truly special place: community. We aim to build the projects we have been dreaming of since we were playing Pokemon as youths. Nothing is off the table in terms of what our tokens may eventually accomplish. Perhaps most importantly, we deeply appreciate the imagination and creative effort that the community is putting into dreaming up possibilities for NFTs and other usecases in our telegram, and keep a close ear to your desires.
But we know you don’t just want flowery language!
NFTs are in the development pipeline and will be available after the release of Generation 2. The conversations that the development team is having behind the scenes with our ever-expanding group of talented community partners include features like converting NFTs to physical objects, an NFT mixtape, NFT trading cards with functional 3D viewing mechanics, and NFTs being used for our lotteries and other games. In addition to the NFTs being a functional object, we also hope they’ll give our community an opportunity to showcase their talent. We want to center our community artists and events with the NFTs we create. Slowly but surely we will build up a creative universe that allows our platform a common space for connection, conversation, and hilarity (in addition to looking so damn cool). Details about NFTs, their potential uses/features, and how they will be available on our platform are coming soon.
Lotteries and Other Games
The Meowth lottery has been a huge success and has given us a simple but effective window into what kinds of gaming and casino activities we can implement in our token ecosystem. We have been paying attention to the way the community has responded to the lottery and tweaked it accordingly. As this pilot program becomes more refined every day, our ideas for expanding token games have become more refined as well. Again, we don’t want to promise anything until we are sure we can deliver on it, but the dev team is constantly discussing how our platform can become a Digital Las Vegas or Disneyland.
Farming and pools will return with our Generation 2 tokens in a big way. Farming will serve as our primary vehicle for collaborations with other partners across the BSC network. The CODENAME UNOVA Masterchef allows for never-before-seen in our project features, abilities, and maintenance. Generation 2 farms have a meticulously designed balance in our ecosystem, and we cannot wait to show you the innovations and utilities we’ve crafted when Generation 2 rolls out.
The airdrop for community members affected by the dev wallet dump in February will happen after Generation 2’s release. We have finished developing a calculation method that accurately captures the value of your holdings and staked coins in the time leading up to the dump, and rewards will be determined in relation to their value at that time. We are now working on finding how to make the airdrop in a way that rewards our most loyal holders without risking the stability of our Gen 2 ecosystem. More details about the airdrop will likely coincide with the release of Gen 2, thank you for your patience!
New Info Hub Site
We have resurrected our information hub site at www.Meownaut.Money — for now it serves as an easy-to-understand guide for our Generation 1 tokens, but we plan on updating it very soon with some highly requested features. Our focus for the information hub is to serve as a place where the community can learn about the project, developers, upcoming features, and community culture. Some features that will be added around the release of Generation 2 are:
- The official project roadmap
- Developer biographies
- A Community Events Calendar
- And more!
Your Gen 1 pools and farms and whatnot still live on Wynautdefi.app
A Little Note on the Development Team’s Process
We are an international team of diversely qualified, clever people. As some of you may know, the current development team was the product of the community coming together and rallying during our project’s darkest hour. We have picked up this project in addition to our regular lives, relationships, work, and education. Even though it is a lot to balance sometimes, we have found a deep love and profound respect for You, the community, and one another. This love is what motivates us every day to strive for the greatest and dream big. The only thing that can match the effort we are putting in is our appetite for more, for realizing that brilliant future we discuss daily.
I personally (Y Not) just have to shout out these guys because honestly they make me laugh, teach me so much, and inspire me. Prefix, Moose, P, Saint, CJ, Hoss, Jens, Watag, Coach, and all the folks we consult — thank you from the bottom of my heart.
To the Community
We also have to thank you. You have stuck with us through thick and thin, fighting the fud and believing in us and one another. Your energy, feedback, ideas, conversations, memes, and opinions about cheese are why this project exists. You are more than consumers or day traders, you’re creative, you ask each other how your days are going, you crack jokes, and you comfort one another when you’re afraid. It is a truly special group of people we’ve united from all corners of this Earth. Every day the team is humbled and honored to serve y’all and do what we know we are capable of to make our collective dreams a reality. We have bottomless gratitude for your contributions to the project and for keeping us company along the way.
We’re also looking for your help! Generation 2 is our opportunity to show the world that not only did we survive, we are thriving. This project is entirely dependent on the community for its word of meowth, organic growth. Just one person has the potential to add limitless value to our tokens, because each one of you has limitless value!
We’re always looking to the community for hiring as well- If you’re an artist, game developer, got cool coding skills, think you have something you can bring to the project, reach out to an admin in the Telegram!
Hold tight, friends, because Generation 2 is coming.
