    What is Sappy Seals?

    Sappy Seals is an Ethereum-native NFT collection of 10,000 seals. It was founded in September 2021 by wab (@wabdoteth), and "a few mates,” after being inspired by the cuteness of Pudgy Penguins, which explains their similarities. Since launch, the seals have made some noise in web3 (ARF ARF). How? By developing a community-led project with cute art, strong meme culture, and an accessible, tech-savvy founder.

    Like its pudgy predecessors, Sappy Seals has a cute art style. It features chubby mammals with adorable cheeks and whiskers and a diverse set of fun traits. Each seal sports accessories such as hats, headbands, durags, tees, glasses, and more. Some of the funner traits include mushroom heads, skeleton masks, and pumpkin heads.

    Now, onto the meme culture. Since the beginning, memes have been an essential part of Sappy Seals, so much so that it released a new meme every hour on Twitter for two months straight. And it doesn’t stop there. The team also created the Meme Machine to empower its community to manufacture memes at scale. Think of it like a McDonald’s of memes, just spitting out meme after meme like they’re Quarter Pounders…

    How did this all come about? wab. wab is a former computer science student that dropped out of his master’s program to go full time with Sappy Seals. And he hasn’t stopped since. He’s constantly listening to, and engaging with, his community, and formulating his plan. And it’s a grand one. Through Pixl Labs, Sappy Seals’ parent company, wab and team plan to take over the metaverse. How? By developing Pixlverse, a 3D metaverse filled with Pokémon-inspired pets that battle, breed, and more.

    Don’t believe us? The team shared this cryptic image which alludes to their plan for world domination.
