What are Punjabis?
The Punjabis is a collection of algorithmically generated cryptopunk like people representing the people of Punjab, designed by Kunwar Sarao and minted as NFTs on the Polygon blockchain. The collection of 10,000 Punjabis will be constructed from various traits - turban colour, eyewear, facial hair, turban style, background and skin colours. Every Punjabi is different from another, making every single unique!
What do I get?
You get different image assets of your Punjabis on the Polygon Blockchain.
How do I get my stuff?
Once minted and confirmed on the blockchain the nft will be available in your wallet. You can sell, transfer, buy Punjabis using Opensea.
What's an NFT?
NFT stands for "Non-fungible token," which means that it's a unique, digital item with blockchain-managed ownership that users can buy, own, and trade. Some NFT's fundamental function is to be digital art. But they can also offer additional benefits like exclusive access to websites, event tickets, game items, and ownership records for physical objects. Think of it as a unique piece of art that can also work as a "members-only" card. The Punjabis works like this.
