The Genesis NFT of Abnormal Studios.
Chapter 1: Bricktopians
Do you feel that the NFT space is crowded with derivatives, cheap knockoffs, cash grabs and unoriginal ideas?

So do we.
That’s why we started Abnormal Studios.
So that our holders can have NFTs that they can be proud of.

We build everything from the ground up so that it is impossible to replicate, cinema grade quality and something that you will never see again.

How do we do that?

Every time we want to build something, we start by asking ourselves:

“What is the highest quality, and hardest thing that we can build?”

“What seems impossible?”
And we build it.

This is the graph that guides our decision making:

First, we developed Bricktopians…

To prove that it is possible to create a 3D collection, where every single NFT in the 10,000 collection is animated and moving in its own unique way.

Why don’t you see more NFTs that look and behave like this?

Well to understand that, first you need to understand how most NFTs are made.

Almost every NFT that you know and love is made through layering.

Where a number of layers are pre-selected and shuffled amongst each other, creating an entire collection almost instantly.

With Bricktopians, we did things a little bit differently.

Every single Bricktopian that you see is born one at a time by a supercomputer.

Each Bricktopian is so complex to simulate, that if we were to generate them on a laptop, it would take over 10 years to produce the entire collection of 10,000 NFTs.

Instead, we worked with engineers to create an army of supercomputers, all stitched together, working in harmony (like those used by NASA to simulate physics in the universe).

With the most GPU power that you could possibly throw at a collection of art, it still took over 5 weeks of pure physics simulations and rendering to complete the collection of 10,000 NFTs.

This is a feat that will never be replicated, and ensures that all our holders have an NFT that is unique and that they can be truly proud of.

So why do I tell this story?

Well, if you’re new here.

We’re here to build the impossible for you, and create value for our holders.

Bricktopians is just the beginning. It is our genesis piece, and all future creations of Abnormal Studios will be accessed through owning a Bricktopian.

All utility that we build into Bricktopians is engineered to reduce supply, making them rarer over time (1,500 burnt from the collection so far, more on that in later chapters).

If you are joining us at this part of the journey, you’ve come at the right time. While others have been chasing hype, we have been building.

The Bricktopian is the hero of our story. We’re here to build the impossible, create value for our holders and our next wave of creations are right around the corner.

Are you ready?
Chapter 2: Brain Boot

Bricktopians are the beginning.

But Chapter 2 is how we disrupt a billion dollar industry, and reward our holders while we do it.

Here’s how.

It’s time to introduce the artist behind all of the works of Abnormal Studios — Law Degree

Law has been the artist behind some of the world’s biggest cultural figures, including Kanye, Virgil Abloh, Young Thug, Lamelo Ball and many more.

2 years ago, Law started his journey to make the world’s first algorithmically generated sneaker that’s wearable in both the digital and physical world.

The Brain Boot:

A wearable 3D printed sneaker,
that starts life as an NFT and is a blank canvas for adaptation in the physical and digital world.

There’s a key part in the above sentence that could be easily missed. 3D printed.

Why does that matter?

It means that we can create a product for the physical world that aligns perfectly with the NFT collector mindset.

  • 1 of 1 sneakers
  • Sneakers that match the art of the NFT that they are represented by
  • Limited release pairs launched in collaboration with other cultural figures, artists & NFT projects.

We’re not the only ones who see the potential in the NFT sneaker market.

Nike dived right in and last year made a $1 billion bet on RTFKT
, a move that generated almost $200 million in its first year.

The demand is there, and Nike has lead this NFT sneaker-driven market with zero competition.

But why should Nike get to have all the fun?

Why don’t we see more NFT projects jump into this market to create value for their holders?

The answer. It’s really f*cking hard to make sneakers.

And that’s where we saw the opportunity to make something that is unique for our holders, and true to the spirit of Abnormal Studios.

So how does the Brain Boot work?

The shoe is sold as an NFT, and you burn it to redeem the physical sneaker.

As more holders burn to redeem Brain Boots, the NFT gets rarer.

And this is all accessed through owning a Bricktopian NFT

Brain Boot whitelisted access
and a 30% discount are accessed through owning a Bricktopian NFT. Only a small group of Brain Boots will be available at public sale.

A limited number of Brain Boots will also be available for purchase by burning a Bricktopian NFT.

This enables us to use the Brain Boot as a vehicle to create scarcity in Bricktopians.

With Bricktopians currently sitting at a lower price than the Brain Boot, this means that some buyers can currently take advantage of an arbitrage in the price difference.

The future of digital fashion is right in front of us. Nike is on it, and now you can be too.

Chapter 3: BricktOrigins

When we built the first physical Brain Boot, it was the moment that took us from being just a PFP, to an ecosystem of technology driven NFTs.

In July 2022, we entered our next chapter, as Abnormal Studios.

When this moment came, we asked ourselves:

How can we tell our story in a manner that captures who we are?

How can we give enhanced utility to our most engaged holders?

How can we create the first ever brand that is born on the blockchain?

The answer:
Later this month, we will be releasing 5 NFTs, each that tell the story of who we are and how we have come to develop Bricktopians, the Brain Boot and everything that Abnormal Studios builds next.

Holders who collect all 5 NFTs will be able to Forge them together
, in a ceremony that unveils what we’re calling…

The Monument
— The interactive logo that will carry us forward as Abnormal Studios.

Those who Forge a Monument will be able to get exclusive benefits with our upcoming releases, that are impossible to offer at scale of 10,000 NFTs.

For example, the rarest Monument allows you to co-design and 3D print your own Brain Boot with Law Degree.

We will only be releasing 999 of each of the 5 NFTs, limiting Monuments to a total supply of 999 NFTs.

4 out of 5 NFTs will be free to mint
, meaning if you just want to own these artifacts of our history, you can collect these individual pieces.

Together, from our history we will Forge our future.

More details will be released soon, to register for the first free mint, fill out the form below:

Pro-tip: Owning a Bricktopian significantly increases your chances, and having it as your Twitter PFP boosts this further.

All accepted applications will be announced on Twitter

As I’ve said. Where others have been chasing hype, we have been building.

We’re built on the most advanced PFP in the NFT space.

We’ve got the artist behind the biggest cultural figures in the world.

We’re releasing a sneaker that has infinite opportunities for adaptations and collaborations.

All of this is accessed through utility that makes Bricktopians rarer over time.
