ABOUT COOL CATS GROUP LLC

Cool Cats is a collection of 9,999 randomly generated and stylistically curated NFTs that exist on the Ethereum Blockchain. Though Cool Cats exploded in the web3 space on its July 1, 2021 launch day, the NFT brand comes from humble origins: it originates from the beloved comic character “Blue Cat,” as brought to life by artist Colin Egan in 2013. Now “Blue Cat” is immortalized on the blockchain forever as the face of the Cool Cats origin collection, and he will be joined by his fellow anthropomorphic friends in future NFT collections under the “Cool” umbrella. Beyond characters, comics, games, apps, merchandise, and animations, Cool Cats delivers inclusive, impactful, community-driven content through immersive storytelling. Beloved by many — including celebrity collectors Reese Witherspoon, Bill Murray, Mario Bautista, Alexis Ohanian, Marc Benioff, Josh Hartand mike shinoda — the Cool Cats brand resonates widely. Cool Cats not only defines, but celebrates what it means to be cool.
