November: Fine Art

November 30, 2022

Check out our November update!

Welcome to your monthly Pudgy recap! As promised, we’ll continue to provide monthly updates for penguins who may have been fishing in a cave. Here’s your November recap! 

In November, through one of our key partnerships, we wanted to even further solidify ourselves as a digital collectible. From various product developments, to high tier partnerships, November was a month full of entering new industries and pushing forward more community initiatives.  Let’s travel across the Pudgy Universe and look at everything we accomplished in November.

Pudgy Penguins in Sotheby's

On November 18th, we announced our auction in Sotheby’s, one of the oldest, most internationally recognized auction houses in the world. 

This auction was a special one that helped move forward Web3 as well. Not only did we auction off the most notorious Pudgy Penguin in the collection, Cole’s Penguin, but we also issued the first ever Soulbound Token (SBT) to be distributed by a major company like Sotheby’s. The SBT will be the ironclad authentication certificate and will include ownership and auction details.

The proceeds from the auction were distributed between a community fund, called The Cozy Horizon Fund, to help accelerate community initiatives, and Oceanities, a conservation group. 

The auction concluded on November 30th, and garnered a total of $128,898. This auction was a testament to the potential for Pudgy Penguins. Our historical sale in Sotheby’s was a major milestone for the Pudgy Penguins brand, and it helps plant our flag in the Web2 and Web3 space for years to come.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the auction, and those who dressed up and utilized the #beaksoutforsothebys hashtag on Twitter.

Product Updates

From a clothing standpoint, we released our new apparel line that is catered to a broader audience and leans on the uplifting and affirmative aesthetic of our brand.

We also partnered up with Glassie to offer a patent-protected technology branded screen protector that has a Pudgy Penguin and an affirmation post whenever your phone is off.

Closing Remarks

To close off this recap, we want to thank our community for supporting us and every one of our initiatives. Like we say in every recap, our community is a big part and will continue to be a big part of the Pudgy Penguins brand.

As we continue on this journey of building the fastest growing IP brand in Web3, we are grateful that you are all on this ride with us. The Pudgy Penguins are different from the rest, and we will build, we will innovate, and we will excel.
