OCM Genesis

What is Genesis?

OnChainMonkey is the Genesis collection. OCM Genesis is a piece of history. It is the first on-chain PFP collection created in a single transaction.
Genesis is an on-chain NFT collection. This means, Genesis was "drawn" by smart contract code, and all the images and meta-data are on-chain and generated by the smart contract on the fly. Genesis is the first on-chain 10K profile pic (PFP) NFT collection completely created in a single Ethereum transaction.

How can I get Genesis?

OCM Genesis was minted out on the day it launched, Sep. 11, 2021. The Genesis collection is only available on secondary marketplaces now.
Always refer to official project and collection marketplace links.
You can find our official OCM links posted on our website, official Twitter page and OCM Discord #official-linkschannel.

How was OCM launched?

OCM was also unique in the way it was launched. OCM Genesis was available as a free mint on mint night, Sep. 11, 2021. There was absolutely no marketing for it. Genesis was deployed by the single transaction without any fanfare and was spread simply by word of mouth. There was no Twitter account or Discord for OCM.
From word of mouth, OCM Genesis was completely minted in the first few hours, and a Discord server was created in response to user requests. Since then, the OCM community formed organically over the next few days and weeks. A community that believes in our values of RISE - respect, integrity, sustainability, and experimentation because these were the values we were born into.

How was the Genesis art created?

To be able to fit all the images into one transaction, the images could not be hand drawn as typically done, but had to be programmed and generated dynamically completely with code.
