Yesterday’s PROOF roadmap update was a crucial moment for the ecosystem, with sentiment and prices falling for months. The update was comprehensive, honest, and much-needed for the community, with a renewed focus on art being the primary update. Moonbirds was rebranded as “The Art Collector’s PFP,” and listeners were given insight into where the team went astray and what they plan for the future.

Moonbirds will receive periodic art drops starting Jan 1, 2025
The market reacted as expected, with prices dropping, and the team encouraged the sell-off to turn over their holder base into those aligned with the vision. The community sentiment is crucial for the ecosystem’s future, and the bear case suggests that art drops may not be valuable, “art collectors” may not buy Moonbirds, and there may not be much demand for Mythics.
