Vancouver-based WestCoastNFT is no stranger to hugely successful NFT drops.
In their first three months of business, the smart contract development agency generated $2 million in revenue and $23 million in revenue for artists and creators.
With 13 drops under their belt including, 888, Secret Society of Whales, Based Fished Mafia, and Boneheads, the team can now add one of the most remarkable mints in NFT history, Doodles, to their roster.
Doodles was founded by Dapper Labs alumni Evan Keast and Jordan Castro, and world-renowned artist burnt toast. The trio chose to partner with WestCoastNFT because of their breadth of expertise, seasoned team, and key values around democratizing the NFT industry and making it accessible to all.
Founded by Steve Mitobe (Hexbite Labs) in 2021, WestCoastNFT is a full-service NFT development agency focused on providing artists with the tech support they need to ensure their drop is a success.
With a specialization in custom smart contracts, WestCoastNFT’s talented team of experts work directly with artists to launch their own custom NFT projects.
Focused on indie artists and empowering creators to monetize and make a living off of their art, WestCoastNFT is a growing team of 12 full-time members ranging in specialization from art curation and marketing consultation to smart contract experts and developers.
“When looking to mint a project, I think of three things. The founder, the art, and the community. Doodles has all three. We couldn’t be more proud of the team and are thrilled with the success of the drop,” shares Mitobe. “Much like their community, working with the Doodles team was collaborative, fun, and inventive. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next and continue supporting them in their journey.”
A community-driven collectibles NFT project, Doodle NFTs are a collection of 10,000 unique characters made up of a hundred exciting traits of faces, hair, hats, bodies, and backgrounds living on the Ethereum blockchain.
Designed by burnt toast, each Doodle is meant to spark joy – and they do. Vibrant, pastel colours are the primary palette of this project, with each character different from the last. Arguably one of the strongest communities in the NFT space, holding a Doodle allows you to participate in coordinating the Doodles Community Treasury.
Holders can vote for experiences, activations and campaigns that benefit the Doodles. Entirely collaborative, the Doodles journey is decided by Doodle holders – and this is just the beginning.
If WestCoastNFT’s partnership with Doodles wasn’t enough, the team recently announced another partnership with digital artist, model, and 3D virtual model creator Shavonne Wong to launch her latest NFT project Love is Love, which sold out in less than an hour.
Inspired by her husband, Love is Love is a collection of 500 unique depictions of love decided entirely by the minter. Known best for her work with Gucci and Vogue, Shavonne Wong is a force, swiftly making a name for herself in the community.
“We’re an adaptable, dynamic team of blockchain experts focused on the art and the artist,” explains Mitobe. “We want to make the NFT space accessible to all, and we advocate for NFT-literacy every step of the way. We have lots coming down the pike, including our partnership with Shavonne, and are excited to continue growing and helping more emerging artists engage with their community, launch their art in the digital space and make a living off their craft. It’s an exciting time to be an artist in this space.”
