# Smart Chain Maritime Society Inspiration
The Glassnode chart that shows Bitcoin distributions across different wallet sizes and referring to these types of holders as either Shrimp, Crab, Octopus, Fish, Dolphin, Shark, Whale or Humpback. We had always heard people talking about Whales and Shrimps etc and we thought making all 8 species into a single NFT collection would be different.
# Smart Chain Maritime Society Utility
The vast majority of the funds will be set aside for the BNB Growth Fund, around 70% at WL price will be utilized in staking pools, The rewards from these funds will be split mainly to fund NFT airdrops to holders, these will be random with the exception of all 1:1’s to be guaranteed an airdrop a month. The NFT’s may be minted or purchased from the secondary market and draws will be weekly.The Mariners Wallet will be to benefit the holders via raffles, competitions and host the community “NFT Treasure Chest”
# Rarity and Ranking
The 12 1:1 designs are the rarest, with the rest of the collection being ranked using RS.
There are the following amount of variants per trait category:
- Backgrounds x 10
- Species x 7 (Excluding Humpbacks and Customs)
- Skins x 12
- Body Prop x 10
- Head Prop x 10
- Eyes x 12
- Mouth x 11
Using all traits across 7 different species, the percentages are roughly the same within each species, so if there is for example a 5% chance of laser eyes, this would be 5% of Shrimp, 5% of Crabs, Etc, Etc
# Why Build on BNB Chain?
Although we had played around with NFT’s on Ethereum a few years back, our interest wasn’t sparked until we found the BNB Community around a year ago, the space was non-toxic and friendly, after saying GM on Telegram daily for this time it just feels like home with low gas fees, great infrastructure and a friendly community.
