# Genesis Ziggy Inspiration
The genesis collection is the first Ziggy collection for early adopters. Genesis Ziggys are considered both an in-game (GameFi) and a PFP (profile picture) collection. This is an opportunity for players to become Ziggy! Genesis Ziggys are based on the main character of the lore, Captain Ziggy, and consist of a collection of generative, unique astronauts with hundreds of traits, meaning no two Ziggys look the same.
Genesis Ziggy are all personally created by our team artists, Star-Lord and R2-D2. This collection has been a 6-month long artistic adventure exploring the different alternate universes of Captain Ziggy.
Each Genesis Ziggy is both a collectible and an in-game utility-NFT for the Ziggyverse game.
A Genesis Ziggy’s utility enables the holder to have:
When players take part in battles or complete missions while owning a Genesis Ziggy, they’ll gain bonus experience points.
Bonus in-game rewards:
Similar to EXP, players also gain LEEKS for certain in-game activities. With a Genesis Ziggy, you’ll earn even more. You can find out more about LEEKS in our Ziggyverse economy article.
The Ziggyverse is a P2E game. It is a competitive monster battle arena, where users can earn BNB, POTS, stablecoins, and NFTs. The Ziggyverse has an in-game guild mechanic which allows you to rent out your team and Genesis Ziggy to scholars while you sit back and collect rewards passively. These rewards grow your Ziggymon and allow you to earn BNB, POTS, Stablecoins, and NFTs prizes.
In-Game Battle Emojis:
Having a Genesis Ziggy allows a player to use in-battle emojis to talk to their adversary
Before the game’s release, the Ziggyverse team will release a Genesis staking mechanic. More details will be provided shortly.
# Rarity and Ranking
As for in-game utility, all Genesis Ziggy offer the same. Whether it be the highest or lowest ranked.
As for NFT Collectors, the Genesis Ziggy will have traits & sets which are more rare and desirable than others. There are hundreds of traits for the collection, and with a supply of 5,000, these Genesis Ziggy do look vastly unique. ALL Genesis Ziggys are unique, like your typical generative NFT collection.
As for rarities and rankings - there will be some traits such as the ‘Gold’ set which is much more rare than a majority of the rest of the collection. It is to be expected that Gold Genesis Ziggy will be sought after to show-off in-game when playing others!
Additionally there will be a bounty sheet for full sets, minters of these full sets will receive BNB and some will even receive a Bundle giving them everything they need to play the game!
# Why Build on BNB Chain?
Ziggyverse is built off the lore of Moonpot (opens new window) and has a wide network within the BNB chain. With the deep roots that these platforms have on the BNB Chain, it made sense that BNB Chain was the initial chain Ziggyverse would launch on..
