Frequently asked questions
Why did you decide to start an NFT project?
We got into the NFT world when everything was still hyped and not sustainable, with all the rug pulls and fake claims we lost quite a bit of money. Sam and myself got together and said there has to be a way to implement a true growing and sustainable model into NFT's, and with that thought in mind we created something special called “The Billionaire Bears Club”.
How did your passed experience prepare you for your new role professionally and personally?
Both co-founders come from a strong business background. As business owners and entrepreneurs we bring our innovative spirit to the NFT space with a hint of professionalism. Our combined experience of almost 20 years in the crypto space has taught us patience and consistency. Furthermore it has made us knowledgeable in the field.

2. Complete transparency
What is your 30 seconds elevator pitch for the project?

Other than your NFT collection how else do you work to further this mission?
We as a group are involved in many different ventures to further this cause. We also give daily free educational spaces for the community and some work tirelessly in the #ReFi project field to help reach our goals.
What inspired your mission?
In the country I live in, education is a difficult and expensive thing to acquire and that created an uneducated generation living off government subsidiaries which created a lack of opportunity for those willing to put the time and effort in to better themselves, thus creating a decade with no innovation or motivation. The NFT and crypto world using blockchain technology has shed light on these misdeeds and inspired us to change the mind-sets of the next generation.
How do you intend to be inclusive without being exclusive?
We have the following innovations in place to help us reach this goal: 1. Weekly twitter spaces to on-board and educate new and curious minds to web3
2. Work closely with refi projects as consultants
3. Give daily educational spaces to anyone who would like to join in for free
4. Invest in projects designed to further our cause
5. We will accept, nurture and guide anyone as long as they have the same mind set, vision and goals.
Are you doing anything to further inclusivity to the minting process?
1. Yes, in collaboration with a women driven project we run weekly twitter spaces to educate & on-board women to web3
2. We host daily educational spaces to help newcomers learn how to navigate the crypto, NFT & web3 spaces.
3. We also do weekly crypto, NFT & web3 news updates for the community to keep them informed.
What is your minting strategy?
We will implement the mint in segments.
1. All whitelist members will be able to mint at a discounted rate in the pre-sale with a guaranteed successful mint for each & will be limited to 3 mints per wallet. This will create more availability for more members to mint during public sale.
2. All wallets will be limited to 10 mints each during the public sale to ensure fair distribution to all.
3. Whitelist members are chosen by means of criteria specified within our discord channel to ensure fair access to a guaranteed pre-sale mint as well as equal opportunity to obtain a NFT.
4. After mint, 2 people will be chosen for a special air drop and they will be known as the VIP members, the criteria to gain entrance into this is also specified within discord server.
5. We also have NFT’s with a special trait. These will be entered into the candy machine and distributed randomly. Those who find this trait within their NFT will automatically be added to thebbc.io DAO.
What is the inspiration behind the art work?
Let’s start with the name and break it down: “The Billionaire Bears Club”
• Referrers to a membership of an organisation driven for purpose and that is what we are, a community driven by passion and vision to reach a common goal.
• Known for their strength, knowledge and hibernation. We are no different. We have the strength and determination to build a successful enterprise. We have the experience and qualifications that give us the knowledge to achieve these goals. And when it comes to hibernation, it refers to being a “bear” in the business and create a self-sustainable ecosystem and business model that produces passive income & requires little to no intervention.
• Although the word refers to wealth, please do not see this as another "buy this and get rich" project. We are using the word to refer to the lateral sense of the word meaning too many to count or high achieving.
The full name therefore refers to a collective group of people with the same mind-set and goal to achieve the biggest impact imaginable.
Now let's get to the artwork:
We chose the bear as we were in the beginning stages of a bear market when we first started the project. The bears in our NFT all went to the gym and have huge bulging muscles to symbolise hard work, effort and give a strong presence. This was no accident and was chosen to show that even in a weak market, with some creativity, hard work and effort, you can still make promising returns with us.
How is your art different from other collections?
Although our technique has been used for many other projects, each NFT is hand drawn. This process, although time consuming, assures our buyers that each NFT is unique. As we are not an art collection, but rather a utility based project we thought it best to stick with a general theme.
Where do you see this project in the next 5 years?
1. We envision this project to have definitely grown and become a globally well-known brand over the next 5 years with a strong community.
2. We also see this project expanding drastically with the launch of our metaverse and reaching a global audience with numerous new partners within the wealth, music, education and #ReFi sectors.
How do you plan on growing after mint?
1. Our first steps after mint will be to implement our growth plan. This will ensure all investments, trading pools and royalties will grow on a monthly basis
2. Then we will launch the metaverse with all our partners and grow that organically
3. We will then keep looking into new investments for the community and expansions for the metaverse.
How do you plan on expanding the project?
As the metaverse evolves and the technology around it evolves we will adapt and adjust. We are also looking into cultivating a #ReFi project, as well as organized real world events that embody our vision. There is no limit to the scope of things we can do with what we are building.
Will the community influence the direction of the project?
We will be setting up a community DAO to help structure future plans, find new routes of investment and direction of the project. We love collaborating with everyone regarding the direction of the project, we are after all a NFT & Metaverse project built by the people for the people.
What are your top 3 priorities for 2022/20223?
1. Building a strong community
2. Launching the genesis version
3. Finishing and launching the metaverse
4. To keep growing and building

You, our bear holders will be eligible for 100% share of these returns. This will be distributed to each holder directly to their Solana wallet. This will be a game changer in the NFT world.

Metaverse Art Gallery
Within the BCC Metaverse the CharlieART gallery / shop / Education hub would be an extension of the artists existing Metaverse / Web3 presence to include an innovative self designed gallery space where works can be viewed and collected in a new and interesting way. To potentially include possible wearable merchandise and a linked NFT display. Alongside the main space will be an educational hub where art / design / product related classes or meetings could be held where / when required.
We are here to create NFTs that would be useful and entertaining for everyone.
With a sound that mixes and perfectly balances more pop and rock elements with electronic textures, "Sunrise Sunrise" got into me as soon as it started playing. Perhaps it was because of Russell's incredible voice or the delicious groove of the melody. Or the addictive bass line, the colorful and joyful synths. Or because of that delicious guitar riff later on that resulted in an extraordinary and surprising moment.
