Who are the Funky Frens Founders?
The Funky Frens founders are three best frens in LA who have known each other for 10+ years and originally met in college. We have all been in the crypto space since 2017 and are avid NFT collectors ourselves. In December 2021, we set out to create NFT avatars based on our real-world selves, after unfortunately seeing too much unoriginal / copy-cat content in the space.
While we aim to stay anonymous for the most part, we pride ourselves on the utmost transparency. I (Zilla) am the only doxxed member, because I deeply and genuinely care about the community we have built, and want our frens to know we are serious about creating as much value as we can.
Here’s some more info on us!
Funky Panda (Artist)
Funky Frens is the brainchild of our artist, Panda. He is a longtime creative and has been designing flash games since he was 8 years old. His artistic skills span the gamut, from illustration & design, to music production, to professional video editing. This is all done while juggling his professional life as a resident doctor!
Funky Rascal (Developer)
Rascal is the developer that makes it all possible. Whether it’s asset-generation, constructing our smart-contract, or building the algorithm to give unique names to all of our frens, he puts his heart and soul into the project. In the daytime, he is a high-ranking software engineer for a Big Tech company (FAANG) and has always wanted to start his own company.
Funky Zilla (Strategy Manager)
I myself handle everything else that is not artwork or code. I come from an engineering background myself but now manage the high level strategy decisions, marketing, business development, and finances for the project. I am indeed doxxed and serve as the spokesperson for Funky Frens. In the day-time, I run business operations for a tech startup.
Together, the founding team represents a strong tripod that combines art, tech, business, and philanthropy. We believe our skillset, execution, and determination will carry Funky Frens to be a prosperous NFT collection. We want to make our community proud and that is what drives us forward every day.
