How did the Bag of Bones Society project start?
BoBS is not just any other NFT project. It began 10 years ago. At the time, Jackk was painting skull faces, inspired by Mexican calavera, and gifting them to friends and family. Jackk painted the eyes, mouths, noses and clothing as expressions of the skull's personalities. It was a way to communicate their individual stories, their uniqueness. Little by little, Jackk created what is now the Bag of Bones Society and the world within which it resides. Art is one pillar of the NFT project. An NFT is an art piece, and a financial investment and we know that. We will highly reward our members, and this starts during the SALE. Two minters will win BAYC #6203 and MAYC #14266 NFT during a Raffle. Each BOBS you mint is an additional chance to win! When we sellout, we will activate the Roadmap which includes private interviews with the artist behind the project art to be drawn a custom BOB, giving to charities, merch drop and gamification of the BOBS world in the Metaverse.
Who is behind the project?
Five BOBs from varied background (a Doc, a Lawyer, an IT consulting Manager in a Big 4, a multi-handed office Manager, and a Lead dev for the top French company in environment) sharing a passion for great art, the world of NFTs, and DeFi, they decided to put their varied skills to create an amazing community and reward it.
October 28, 2021, State of Renovigo, somewhere on Earth
A catastrophic tsunami has devastated the region, causing widespread panic in the neighboring villages. On the banks of the Sanco River, the Kaduka nuclear power station, once the source of the state's prosperity, was irreparably damaged. A leak, stemming from a crack in the central reactor, has poisoned the river's water and soil.
Overnight, the whole region was laid to waste, contaminated by the radioactive chemicals leaching into the land. No longer able to rely on their fish and their crops for sustenance, the inhabitants were forced to leave their home.
The living fled while the dead remained, abandoned to their sad and lonely fate. But our story doesn't end here. Deep under the earth, and far from prying eyes, the unexpected occurred. It would seem some lucky Bags of Bones got their golden tickets out of their tragic demise. Those fortunate enough to have a smidgen of DNA left after the maggots' feast that is. A hearty cocktail of Uranium 235 mixed with the Sanco River's sacred waters miraculously brought them back to life. Lo and behold!
These Bags of Bones, flesh, tongues, and eyes having long since rotted away, emerged from the earth. As they roamed, they dug up the soil searching, seeking. What were they looking for? Only the coolest accessories and the hippest garments, for true fashion never dies. But more than that, the right object could be the key to their identity. A testament to what lies inside the bones, to who they were before they suddenly left this world. A way for their families to recognize them, when they finally come knocking at their doors. Anything to avoid a head of garlic in the face or a bullet in the head. And so our journey begins. In preparation for the famed "Day of the Dead". As this disparate horde of bones walks the land, seeking the souls that once belonged to them, the loved ones that left them behind. Spanning all eras and generations, having set aside former disputes, they move united, as one, towards their goal. Beyond the banks of the Sanco River, across the mountains and the oceans to distant and foreign lands, their quest will take them far and wide. These Bags of Bones. They dream only of one thing. To be reunited with the ones they love. For it is the only thing that matters, the only thing that makes a life worth living.
Our Community engagement is the cement that will allow BOBS to succeed in the NFT space. For this reason, we are rewarding our members, and the more they are active, the more they get rewarded. We have organized Twitter post contests, Discord contests, Halloween fancy dress contests, multiple Giveaways, ETH Giveaways etc. The most active and early members of us are the Early Bobs. What defines an Early Bob?
Early Bobs are being consulted in decisions we take before communicating to the Community. They have been nominated along the way. This role was created before the mint opening for Phase 1 opened to build a solid base with early minters. This was made possible by proceeding to Natural mint for organic growth, with genuine interested and motivated members. Phase 1 goal was to create an engaged community, build a confidence relationship with our early members. But also to constitute an ETH reserve to promote Bag Of Bones at a broader scale. We believe a strategy based on FOMO is not the way to be a long term project. Next comes phase 2 where we start mass communication to make the world know about BOBS (Giveaways, collaborations with other projects etc). We are also putting in place a seniority system to incentive minting and holding. Our members will earn Bone Dust each month. Depending on the amount they have it will unlock exclusive rewards and advantages. It is still time to mint, and become an Early Bob, or only benefit from early adopters exclusive advantages!

Am I doing a good investment buying a Bag of Bones Society NFT?
That is ultimately a decision for you to make. We believe Bag of Bones Society NFTs have a long life ahead of them. There’s already plenty of things in our heads for the future. We want the BOBS project to evolve and grow. However its success relies on many factors and variables that no one can predict. We believe the Bag of Bones Society NFTs will go to the moon. But we can’t predict what their value will be over time. So don’t spend money you can’t afford to not have.
What is the Tokenomics?
