10KTF, or 10,000 True Friends, is a story-driven NFT project that leverages the ability of NFT holders to use their IP to craft derivative NFTs, ranging from wearables like sneakers and backpacks to Gucci-tailored Bored Ape skins. 
While 10KTF has not publicly shared a product roadmap, they’ve hinted at future plans through lore. 

10KTF is a storytelling NFT project that progresses the storyline through tweets on a consistent weekly basis that happen on Thursday at 6pm EST. As true fans we are the protagonists in the story representing wagmi-sans true frenz. Throughout the story we have helped wagmi-san from paying New Tokyo gangs protection money by holding onto his shops materials, rebuilding his shop when it was burnt down, and helping wagmi-san take a stand against the Kaiju in season 1. 

The story unfolds by creating full immersion through multiple platforms. 

  • A discord made up of the 10KTF shopkeepers.
  • Twitter posts made every week.
  • Release of “Battle for New Tokyo,” an open-world game in the metaverse
  • Twitch streams when necessary.

Season 1

10ktf's content is broken up into seasons. Above is a great recap of season one.
Missions & Points

Each 10KTF item is assigned a specific point value based on its base power and rarity. In addition to these points, you may also earn even higher scores by utilizing PFP multipliers.

Battle.town missions
mission badges

Battle.town is a PFP event platform where players can use their 10KTF items to join missions to help Wagmi-san in the ongoing battle for New Tokyo. After connecting an eligible wallet, players will be able to join missions by sending their avatars, equipped with 10KTF items, to help Wagmi-san’s cause. The complexity and feature set of each mission will increase over time. At the end of the Mission, rewards are calculated based on each player’s loadout compared to the total pool. After completing a Mission, a reward may be available for claim.

At 10KTF’s discretion, mission rewards may include story point badges, stockroom materials, physicals, or other items. These items will be available for claim and redemption on Battle.town after each mission is completed. 10KTF may select a number of missions that reward participants in ApeCoin; if so, these rewards will be available to claim on 10kfrens.org upon completion of the mission.

How to participate in Battle.town missions

Connect an eligible wallet to Battle.town. Make sure the URL address you are interacting with in your browser is “BATTLE.TOWN”.

Avatars are required in order to participate in Battle.town. However, if you do not own an NFT from the collections listed below, you may use a blank avatar. While available to everyone, the blank avatar receives fewer rewards and is ineligible for certain bonuses.

Check the #old-walkie channel in the 10KTF Discord server for the latest Battle.town announcements.

Equipping your battle loadout
example battle town mission page

The quality of your loadout of avatars is determined by the tier of the 10KTF items equipped, their rarities, and any bonuses attained. It is highly recommended to fully equip your Avatar in order to optimize your loadout. The specific value of each 10KTF item will be revealed over time. Each item has a corresponding “base power,” which earns additional rewards for holders/players in 10KTF’s Battle.town game.

Level 1 items include any items crafted from stockroom collection items. Level 2 Combat Gear is a limited collection that includes special gear for Battle.town missions. Combat Gear will give players the ability to yield higher points on set bonuses in Battle.town missions.
Level 2 Combat Gear is stored in Combat Crates. When revealed, each crate will contain 1 Combat Blank. These Blanks will require a 10KTF-supported parent NFT in order to mint a 1:1 Combat item. (10KTF Gucci Grails are not a parent NFT.)

PFP Multiplier

Bringing your PFP gives you additional multipliers to your items. If you’re having a matching PFP you can double your total loadout points.

Season 2

Season 2 has been teased but no missions have started yet. 

If you own tools, you have the ability to stake them in return for APE tokens on a daily basis. There is no limit to the number of tools you can stake, provided they belong to the same wallet address with which you are connected. Keep in mind that each time you decide to stake or unstake, you will need to pay gas fees.

Tutorial: How To Stake Stockroom Tools
The 10KTF Stockroom holds the materials, tools, and blanks for Wagmi-san’s shop that allow you to create the bags, shoes, hoodies, and other items seen in the 10KTF genesis collection. The materials in this collection (thread, rubber, cloth, Gucci material, etc.) can be combined and “burned” to create “blank” versions of the wearables from the 10KTF genesis collection.

Stockroom Tools
Tools can be used to craft blank NFT items such as hats, backpacks, and other items that can be combined with certain parent NFTs (such as Bored Apes). Only holders who own certain parent NFT avatars like Bored Apes can craft 1/1 items that incorporate the parent NFT.

Stockroom tools are reusable items that can be used as many times as needed to craft as many blanks as you like. 10KTF's staking feature allows everyone to craft blanks without buying their own tools or borrowing from a friend. You can borrow tools from the shop when you connect to craft. (You will still need materials in your Metamask to craft blanks.)

What is tool staking?

If you own tools, you have the ability to stake them in return for APE tokens on a daily basis. There is no limit to the number of tools you can stake, provided they belong to the same wallet address with which you are connected. Keep in mind that each time you decide to stake or unstake, you will need to pay gas fees.
Stockroom Materials

Stockroom Materials are consumable items that can only be used once to craft blanks. According to 10KTF’s lore, collectors aren’t able to craft blank socks at this time due to supply chain issues in New Tokyo. Minting PFPs on socks is available on a limited, weekly basis.

Crafting blanks

Blanks are digital items crafted by Wagmi-san that can be brought back to his shop to be turned into a final finished item with the art of your desired parent NFT on it. The desired parent NFT must be a collection supported by 10KTF, and you must own the parent NFT in the same wallet as the blank. 

Blanks can take the shape of Level 1 Genesis, Crafted, or Level 2 Combat Gear. (These come into play in Battle.town, 10KTF’s event platform where holders can use their items to participate in game missions.)

What are Tea Leaves?
Tea Leaves are an off-chain resource in Battle.town Season 2 and beyond. Their exact uses and redemption mechanics will be revealed in the coming weeks, but Tea Leaves can be earned as rewards during Missions.

Tea Leaves and Storypoint Badges cannot be traded or transferred between wallet addresses.

As different types of Missions are rolled out in Battle.town Season 2, different types of rewards will be introduced. 

Kagamis are the first 10KTF physical displays. The supply is very limited to only 893 pieces. We still don’t know much about the utility other than them being an amazing digital display.
Weekly Schedule

High Tops Mint, September 17, 2021

10KTF was launched in September 2021 by WeNew Labst. The project began in the discord server of the Bored Ape Yacht club when rendered Nike Air Force Ones were created using IP of several apes within the community. This turned into a project that got passed onto the top projects in the NFT space at the time. Projects like 0N1 Force, World of Woman, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Mutant Ape Yacht Club, Bored Ape Kennel Club, Pudgy Penguins, and Cool Cats were afforded the opportunity to right click save a rendering of their NFT IP on High Tops (or) mint the High Tops for 0.05 ETH.

Daypacks Mint, September 23, 2021

For those that minted this was the beginning of the genesis collection. Two days after the High Tops were minted a new window opened that allowed community members to mint their IP onto a Daypack. Over this period of time a story was being told from the 10KTF shop twitter. An old man that is a master craftsman from New Tokyo is a tailor for the metaverse. He is able to craft these goods from his shop. Word travels fast to wagmi-sans enemies that wagmi-san is having great success. This results in an early closure of the shop which abruptly ends the mint for Daypacks.

Wagmi San Flees, September 24, 2021

Wagmi-san abandons his shop to avoid being found by an unknown enemy (who we later identify as BOSS_TOADZ). A dagger is ominously jammed into the counter, and a mysterious note is left behind: “You said 10, not 7”. They are not happy about the early closure during the Daypack’s mint. 

The Return of Wagmi-San and First Snapshot is Taken, September 26 - October 10, 2021

The shop has been raided and Wagmi-san injured. Our enemies were here and they took what was not theirs. Wagmi-san has to find a way to hide and protect what little assets he has left. He turns to see who his true friends are. He finds 6 rolls of film in the back of his store. A snapshot is taken.

Tools and Materials Airdropped, October 6, 2021

On 10/6, every loyal customer of 10KTF who was in possession of a 10KTF item up until this day received an airdrop from Wagmi-san. Depending on the level of rarities, some received more Materials or were guaranteed a reusable Tool. Customers can use these Tools and Materials to craft Blanks for the 12/9 mint.

Our Common Enemy is Revealed, October 11, 2021

The Toadz are Wagmi-san’s sworn enemy. They continue to torment the craftsman for protection money, while they steal and destroy his property. They know that Wagmi-san has outsmarted them by hiding his Raw Materials, and they’re looking for vengeance.

Boss_Toadz Attack, October 14, 2021

The Toadz attack OpenSea, buying precious genesis items that Wagmi-san has crafted and ultimately burning them as a sign of war.

How to Craft Blanks, October 21, 2021

Wagmi-san shares the recipe for how the airdropped Materials are going to be used to create new items in the future, foreshadowing the 12/9 drop.

Hightops & Daypacks Rarity Revealed, October 27, 2021

The note displays the rarities for all minted (and not minted) High Tops and Daypacks, as well as some additional memos from Wagmi-san to himself. These are Wagmi-san’s random thoughts, and perhaps clues for the future.

Crafting Blanks, November 11, 2021

Wagmi-san opens up his shop to his most loyal frens, the holders of 10KTF Stockroom Collection, who are now able to create a series of Blanks using their Materials and Tools. Materials are consumable, tools are reusable and can be upgraded in the future. Blanks are used for making new PFPs for 12/9 mint.

A Mysterious Character Emerges, November 8, 2021

 She’s an enigma, and she has news of Wagmi-san’s next mint on 12/9

New Tokyo Dollars, January 12, 2022

New Tokyo Dollars will enable you to acquire the next phase of materials, tools, grailed items, physical rewards, and adventures yet to be discovered in New Tokyo. For the initial allocation of NTD, you must be captured on Wagmi-san’s special roll of film by owning at least one 10KTF item by 1/13. Subsequently, you can earn New Tokyo Dollars by staking your tools or as a bounty in future missions to help Wagmi-san free New Tokyo from the grasp of the city’s gritty underlords.

Her name is Wen Moon, February 3, 2022

Meet Wen Moon, New Tokyo’s mischievous gray area operator. She’s slick, moves in silence, and is a little shady. You can find her lurking in the back alley, not too far from her questionable cargo truck. Definitely up to something.

Heist & Giveaway, February 17, 2022

After several weeks of mystery, we finally get a taste of what Wen Moon is all about. She sneaks into the Toadz’s warehouse and steals a stash of Genesis Daypacks. To cover her tracks, she awards the heisted Daypacks to the community’s best artists – leaving the Toadz at odds with how they were robbed of their loot.

Hearing from an old friend, February 24, 2022

Wagmi-san is feeling creative and inspired to take photos again just before the arrival of a friend.

10KTF x Gucci, March 9, 2022

Wagmi-san's dear friend Alessandro Michele, creative director of Gucci, paid a visit to the shop. With their mutual love for style and craftsmanship, they released a limited edition collection for citizens of New Tokyo.

10KTF x Boss_Toadz, March 24, 2022

After celebrating the success of 10KTF Gucci Grailed, Wagmi-san returns to find the shop vandalized by BOSS_TOADZ. In his own way, BOSS_TOADZ demands Wagmi-san curates a Gucci-style collection in his honor – 10KTF x BOSS TOADZ. Annoyed by this affront, Wagmi-san retaliates with a subtle and sinister plan to make a mockery of the Toadz.

NFT LA, March 31, 2022

March ended on a high note with 10KTF’s first IRL event during the week of NFT LA. 

Over 300 attendees met with Shopkeepers and the rest of the team in the Little Tokyo neighborhood of Downtown Los Angeles. This was truly a special moment for the community and team, alike. The event was a success and received accolades from the community.

Who controls the corner?, April 15, 2022

After falling victim to Wagmi-san’s retaliation, the Toadz are in a weakened position – one which BOSS_WOOLF and BOSS_GANGGANG use to their own benefit. The Wolves and Gutter Cats are not allies, and the three-way rivalry creates a disaster the shop will never forget.
