What’s Wild really all about?

At Wild, we help artists and collectors experience the wonder of web3 through our artist residency, our destination marketplace, and immersive worlds & experiences. 

We believe there is a better way to foster our world’s creativity and we’re on a mission to build the most seamless, inclusive, and fun place to create. We believe the way to access that creativity is by working with incredible creatives to build the places we want to spend our time in.

What makes Wild so unique?

Wild is a connected world of creativity so approachable, imaginative & delightful you’ll want to build your future in it. Starting in the Wild Residency, we empower artists to push their own boundaries and do their best work. Wild artists develop collections that go beyond the 2D – they are intentionally and thoughtfully designed to be immersive and experiential to create deeper opportunities to engage with the work. Collections are available in the Wild Marketplace, where we invite fans to discover and connect with art and communities of creativity. In addition to our artist collections, we build our own immersive worlds through the Wild Design Lab. These worlds will be the building blocks of a new way to experience art. 

As a collector, how can I get involved?

You can become a part of Wild through our proprietary Wild collections, such as the Wild Oasis, as well as through our incredible Artist Residency Collections. Whether looking to buy your first or 500th NFT, we are here to serve those at all stages of their web3 journeys. Our goal is to help you not just transact and look at art, but to take a peek inside the curtain to understand the story and the artist behind the collection. We believe art should be felt and experienced, not just seen – and we aim to help our collectors do just that.

As an artist, what’s the best way to participate?

We’re committed to supporting artists, creators, and makers in doing their best work – giving them the tools to do so, and also eschewing the outdated creator models that take an outsized cut of their financial upside.

Together with our world-class artists, we build delightful and approachable experiences that amplify their visions and help them connect with fans, both existing and new. Right now, the best way to onboard into Wildxyz as an artist is through our Residency – learn more and apply here.

How do I get regular updates on artist collections or opportunities to engage with Wild?

Each week, we have a curated show, Wild Wednesdays, where we’ll share the latest collection releases, hear from artists about their inspiration and motivation, and share what’s ahead with the community and beyond. Tune in every Wednesday at 11:30am PT on twitter.com/wildxyz, and make sure to follow along at twitter.com/wildxyz as well!

Wild Residency

What is the Wild Residency?

The Wild Residency is an application-based program where we bring together incredible emerging and established makers to learn, grow, and reimagine art as we know it. Our residency helps makers push their work through mentorship and community building. We’re focused on setting up creators for the long-term, helping them build successful careers in web3 and beyond. That means more than a single collection – we sustain momentum with an emphasis on community and engagement.

What should I expect to learn or achieve in the Residency?

The Wild Residency enables the development of cutting-edge art  and immersive experiences. Our program focuses on valuable benefits and meaningful connection, including:

  • 12 weeks of organized programming in web3, NFTs, and hyperreality opportunities

  • Authentic education and mentorship from industry legends and expert artists
  • Support shaping and sharing your story like never before, including custom-produced content and live programming

Reinvented Drops

What are Wild’s Reinvented Drops?

Wild is a destination to support your favorite makers, discover new art, and build your collection of originals and virtual goods. Our early marketplace is intentionally curated, with an emphasis on the stories behind the artists and their work. We’re starting small and continuing to build over time.

As an artist, how can I sell my work on Wild.xyz?

Right now, Wild is specifically designed to support artists in our Residency. If you’re interested in participating, check out our Residency Application to learn more.

As a collector, how can I find more art and experiences on Wild.xyz?

Wild is a deeply curated experience that will continue to build and grow more robust and expansive over time. Right now, you can bid on a Wild Oasis each day, and also explore collections from our Residency artists, debuting for Oasis owners every Monday and the general public every Tuesday at 12pm PT.

How do auctions for the Wild Oasis work?

Rather than letting Wild dictate the price, we want fans to determine the value. TLDR for how it works:

  • Every auction lasts 24hr.
  • Bidding starts at 0.1 ETH
  • New bids must beat previous by the greater of 0.01E or 10%
  • No cap
  • Auction ends every day at 12pm PT

And for those interested in the details:

  • When a Bidder places a bid, they send the ETH for that bid to the contract. 
  • Each new bid must beat the previous by 10% (ie: new bid must be 110% of the current bid, rounded to 2 decimal places), and has no cap (meaning it can be infinitely greater than prior bid).
  • The bid then raises immediately to the max bid and the non-winning bidder is immediately refunded the ETH. 
  • The auction is scheduled to end every day at noon or 3 minutes after the last bid, whichever is later. 
  • If a higher bid enters the auction with less than 3 mins before auction close, the auction extends by 3 minutes. If new bids are placed in the final 3 minutes, this 3 minute extension will continue until there are no new bids.
  • At the close of auction, the token is sent to the winning bidder and a new auction starts right away. In the unlikely event that an auction ends with zero bidders, the token is burned.
  • No matter the closing time of the previous auction, each new auction resets to close at 12pm PT on the following day.
How do I bid on collections from Wild artists?

There are three distinct sale phases for purchasing art on Wild. 

  1. Allowlist from Monday at 12pm PT to Tuesday at 12pm PT
    1. Oasis holders get early access to the allowlist starting at 11am PT
  2. Public Auction from Tuesday at 12pm PT to Wednesday at 12pm PT
  3. Raffle from Wednesday at 12pm PT to Thursday at 12pm PT

Allowlist: Wallet addresses added to the allowlist can buy a token during this period at a fixed price. Details include: 

  • 1 per wallet max
  • 0.1ETH
  • Runs 24 hours prior to public auction 
  • Upon purchase, token is sent to the buying wallet immediately (with the reveal to follow)

Public Auction (also known as a Second Price Auction): Supply here is collection-dependent. Details include:  

  • 1 per wallet max
  • Bid in ETH 
  • Runs 24 hours
  • Each bid must be higher than the current low bid by 0.01ETH
  • Bids are ranked by value and time, with earlier bids taking precedence during ties
  • When auction starts, there is a minimum opening bid (ie: 0.1ETH)
  • The first bidder can bid as low as the floor price or as high as they want.
  • Once all tokens in the auction have at least one bid on them, a clearing price will be determined.
  • To win the auction and successfully mint a piece, you must be above the clearing price when the auction ends at 12pm PT.
  • Higher bids will have a higher likelihood of being above the clearing price. 
  • If two or more bids are tied, the preference is given to the earliest bidder in the 24 hr auction. It benefits you to show up early to the auction! The ETH is sent back to the non-winning bidder.
  • At the end of the auction, bids above the clearing price will be able to proceed to mint. 

Raffle: At the end of the public auction, anyone who placed a bid that didn’t win will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win the remaining collection pieces.

  • A percent of each supply will be reserved for the raffle, with the chances of winning determined by the number of entries
  • Wild will use a random number generator to pick winners, who will be sent the token immediately
What do I pay if I win the auction?

Your final pay price is the bid amount below yours + 0.01ETH. If the bid amount below yours is the same as your bid, you will pay the next lowest bid + 0.01ETH. 

If you bid more than the floor and the collection does not sell out, the “second price” mechanics noted above hold – you will pay the bid amount below yours + 0.01ETH. 

How do I get on an artist allowlist?

One of the many perks of owning a Wild Oasis is allowlist access for our artist drops. Oasis owners will be able to mint starting at 11am PT, 1hr ahead of the rest of the allowlist.

Artists will also be determining their own criteria for allowlist spots, so be sure to follow your favorites so you don’t miss any opportunities!

When will a secondary Marketplace be available?

We know our collectors and artists alike love the chance to buy and sell on a secondary market. We’ll be launching secondary market features and functionality in 2023 and will share updates as we get closer.

Wild Experiences

What are Wild experiences?

Wild Experiences represent both the immersive journey across our artist collections, as well as Wild’s own collections – starting with Wild Oasis.

Through a delightful, immersive, fun, and inclusive approach, we amplify artists’ visions and help them connect with fans, both existing and new. To start, these are available in web browsers, with additional mediums coming soon.

What does it mean to be a Wild Oasis owner?

Once a day, you have a chance to join the premiere access to the Wild ecosystem. The Wild Oasis is a world where you can explore, dream, and experience. When you enter into your Oasis, you’re entering into a world created just for you, that is growing and evolving. Wild Oasis owners will get special access to features, surprises, delightful moments and interactions, including immersive experiences all your own; access to Wild collections; Allowlist opportunities for Wild Residency collections and more.

Can I experience (and share) my assets in the same way on Wild & other platforms?

When you mint a piece on Wild, you will own the artwork itself which is transferable to all other secondary platforms. You will also enjoy a bespoke only-on-Wild experience designed for you to immerse yourself in the work exactly as the artist intended. 

What Wild Experiences lie ahead?

In addition to new artist collections dropping weekly, we’ll continue to add special surprises and unique elements for Oasis owners. We’re also dreaming up new experiences through Wild’s Design Studio – continuing to deubt in 2023 and beyond, so stay tuned!
