RECUR and Paramount Global to Debut Mashup NFTs Based on Nickelodeon Characters

RECUR and Paramount Global to Debut Mashup NFTs Based on Nickelodeon Characters

Brand-New Mashup Remix Inspired by Original Rugrats and Hey Arnold! Theme Songs Released Today from Famed DJ Steve Aoki

MIAMI--July 11, 2022--RECUR, the premier platform for creating innovative, multi-chain NFT experiences, is bringing some of Nickelodeon’s most iconic ‘90s characters into Web3 in a whole new way with the help of Grammy-nominated DJ and producer, Steve Aoki.

RECUR’s Nickelodeon NFT drop via Nickelodeon.xyz, beginning July 18th for whitelisted users and July 19th for the public, will feature 12 original characters from Rugrats and Hey Arnold! On July 26th, fans will have the ability to trade in their original NFTs to collect Slime which will lead to the opportunity to get Mashup characters starting July 29th.

RECUR and Paramount Consumer Products have partnered with avid NFT collector and Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Steve Aoki to introduce this new set of Mashup characters. In the spirit of mashups, Aoki created a new remix that combines original theme songs from Rugrats and Hey Arnold! into a new track to reveal Nickelodeon NFT character Mashups through a music video. The neon, technicolor music video offers fans a first look at the character Mashups while reviving the spirit of the '90s. Mashups are brand new characters that combine traits and names from the collection’s original characters. A Mashup that’s part Tommy Pickles and part Helga Patacki equals Tolga.

The video by Steve Aoki was released today and can be found below.

As an NFT collector and creator, Aoki knows the power of NFTs to build and engage vibrant communities. He says, “Really grateful to be teaming up with RECUR and Paramount to bring these shows to life in the NFT space. Can’t wait to see the roadmap come to life.”

RECUR’s Co-Founder and CEO, Zach Bruch, says, “Character mashups are going to bring together characters from two iconic Nickelodeon shows in a way we’ve never seen before. And it’s all powered by the RECUR platform - concepted and delivered with such an incredible partnership with Team Nickelodeon and Steve Aoki.”

This exciting NFT drop featuring Rugrats and Hey Arnold! characters will open to the public on July 19th at 2pm ET. There will be 10,000 Nickelodeon NFT packs available for $50 each through Nickelodeon.xyz — a site that is part of the Paramount-branded NFT marketplace Powered by RECUR. Each pack contains a distinctive 1/1 PFP featuring a unique take on one of twelve characters from Rugrats and Hey Arnold!. Characters from Rugrats include: Tommy Pickles, Angelica Pickles, Chuckie Finster, Phil Deville, Lil Deville, and Susie Carmichael. Characters from Hey Arnold! include: Arnold Shortman, Helga G. Pataki, Gerald Johanssen, Phoebe Heyerdahl, Harold Berman, and Rhonda Wellington Loyd.

The Mashup experience will allow fans to trade in their original Rugrats and Hey Arnold! PFPs for Slime, and then collect and trade in enough Slime to receive one of 500 rare Mashups. Fans will be able to swamp their original PFPs for Slime beginning July 26. After collecting a total of ten Slime NFTs, fans can trade in their Slime for a brand-new character Mashup beginning July 29th.

Nickelodeon NFTs sold out. And oh splat, there’s more.

Well that was wild. We’re so thankful for the incredible support from this community!

Who did you scoop? Tommy? Angelica? Arnold? Or maybe you got the one and only strawberry Gerald?

Step one: join the RECUR Discord and show off to fellow collectors. We’re sold out but the secondary marketplace is where the afterparty kicks off.

This is just the beginning though. Now that the first Nickelodeon NFT drop is done, the Splat Factory is ready to go full spin.

Are you ready for Slime, Mashups, and a teaser of what else is joining RECUR after the Rugrats and Hey Arnold! characters settle into their new collections?

Yeah, we thought so.

First up, it’s time to Slime. 🟢⏰

If you’ve been following along, then you already know that Nickelodeon NFTs come equipped with what’s called a Slime Score, this will be important to know if you’re looking to participate in Challenges.

Your Slime Score is the number of Slime you can collect if you trade in your character NFT. But keep in mind that Slime is permanent. If you do redeem a character for their Slime Score, they’ll be slimed and removed from the collection completely.

Your chance to exchange characters for Slime is starting July 26th and like everything else, Slime is non-fungible and limited in quantity. Don’t hesitate, Slime. Because if you’re too slow, a determined collector might beat you to what’s left and you don’t want to miss what comes next.

The Splat Factory is open for business! 🏭

Slime that players have collected can be used at the Splat Factory to cook up never before seen and super rare Nickelodeon Mashups! You’ll need to trade in ten Slime to collect a Mashup so get the slime buckets ready.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if Helga and Tommy or Harold and Angelica were mashed together? The results are undeniably exciting, for better or for worse. We promise when you see a few of these Mashups, you won’t be able to look away.

Just a quick reminder for you Football Heads out there, Slime is limited. It’s a rare element after all. And that means… *drum roll*, you guessed it! Character Mashups that Slime help fuel the creation of are even more rare to earn and collect!

So after checking your Slime Score and seeing what you’re holding, you might be surprised how much Slime you’re hoarding. On July 29th, get ready to turn that Slime into Mashups.

All that and details on a second drop?! 😬

Not yet, but it’s coming. Or is it? 😅

The Splat Factory nearly ran out of Slime helping bring this first drop to life. But if you help us refill it, you’ll earn some extraordinary odd creations to own, cherish, and trade forever.

And if you stay tuned in our Discord and on our Twitter, we promise to keep you posted on what’s coming out of the ’90s time capsule next.

Extra, extra! Special news incoming from RECUR! 📰

WAGMI baby! 🤗

Since you’ve been so patient with us and made it all the way to the bottom of our latest post, we thought we’d share another reason to care about what’s coming next…

The Care Bears are coming to metaverse with brand new style, experiences, and maybe even a few new friends. 😉

No point in spoiling all the fun though. There’s plenty more exciting announcements to come this summer and we’re preparing to share soon™️.

Rugrats and Hey Arnold! NFT Drop Details

Everything you need to know to be ready for the upcoming Rugrats and Hey Arnold! NFT drop Powered by RECUR.

ICYMI, Nickelodeon NFTs Powered by RECUR are coming soon, starting with Rugrats and Hey Arnold! characters. 10,000 packs will be available to purchase throughout the sale for $50 each. We’ll have 500 additional packs that are not for sale and will be reserved for marketing, community, and other uses.

Starting July 18th, the drop will happen in three phases:

  1. RECUR Pass Holder Whitelist Sale: July 18th at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET
  2. RECUR Pass Holder Early Access Sale: July 19th at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET
  3. Public Sale: July 19th at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET

RECUR Pass Holders get a front row seat

You may be thinking: sure, this is great but what’s in it for RECUR Pass Holders? We’re glad you asked. We’ve been hard at work figuring out how to create the best experience for Pass Holders and we’re pretty excited to try something new.

We’re reserving half of all Rugrats and Hey Arnold! NFTs specifically for RECUR Pass Holders. That means there’s 5,000 NFTs set aside just for Pass Holders to purchase. We’ll have two early access phases for Pass Holders:

  1. A whitelist for Passes with specific attributes;
  2. An early access sale for all Pass Holders.

Pass Holder Whitelist

Want guaranteed access to a Nickelodeon NFT? Well, you’re in luck.

For every RECUR Pass you hold that meets the following criteria, you’ll receive one early access code for guaranteed access to purchase a Nickelodeon pack.

1. Hold a RECUR Pass with the following attributes during the snapshot on July 12th at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET

2. A Pass that has one of:
Most Occurring Color: Orange or Green
Most Occurring Color: Neutral or Mixed with 2x Orange and 2x Green

3. AND one of:

Property Tag: Prime, Three of a Kind, Palindrome, Full House, Four of a Kind, Square, Cube, Fibonacci, or Perfect
Color Set: Monochrome , Dichrome, or Trichrome
Longest Sequence: 2, 3, 4, or 5

For example, if you hold a Full House Pass with a Most Occurring Color of Green in your RECUR Wallet on July 12th at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET, you’ll receive a whitelist code for that Pass. You can buy an eligible RECUR Pass using the Nickelodeon Whitelist filter here.

The Pass Holder whitelist sale will begin on July 18th at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. If you meet the Pass criteria during the snapshot, you’ll receive an email shortly before the whitelist sale opens with your early access code and instructions on how to purchase. You’ll have a 24 hour window to use your early access code before the whitelist sale is closed.

Each early access code will allow you to buy one Nickelodeon pack for $50. If you hold multiple eligible RECUR Passes during the snapshot, you’ll receive one early access code for each eligible Pass.

TLDR; more eligible Passes = more guaranteed packs.

Pass Holder Early Access Sale

If your Pass doesn’t qualify, you still have a chance to cop a pack early in our Pass Holder early access sale! During the early access sale, all RECUR Pass Holders will be able to purchase Nickelodeon packs while supplies last.

Whether you received an early access code or not, all Pass Holders at the time of the sale will be eligible. The early access sale will begin on July 19th at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.

There are 5,000 total packs available for Pass Holders to purchase during the whitelist sale and early access sale combined. Any remaining packs unclaimed from the Pass Holder whitelist will be available for all Pass Holders in the early access sale. We estimate that about half of the Pass Holder supply will be available in the presale, but it could be lower or higher depending on how many people on the whitelist redeem their codes. Any remaining packs following our Pass Holder sales will become available in the public sale.

Everyone else, get ready for July 19th

Our public sale will begin on July 19th at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET on Nickelodeon.xyz.

During the public sale, anyone can purchase Nickelodeon packs while supplies last.

There are 5,000 packs reserved for the public sale. If there are any remaining packs from the Pass Holder whitelist and early access sales, they will also become available for purchase in the public sale.

RECUR Pass Holders, get ready for a three peat. You’ll have your third chance to purchase a pack during the public sale. If you purchase a pack or packs in our earlier sales, you’re still eligible to purchase during the public sale.

This is just the start of what’s to come with Nickelodeon NFTs. Stay tooned to find out which characters will be featured later this week!

This post was updated on 6/22 to include RECUR Passes with 2x Orange and 2X Green in the whitelist and link to the Nickelodeon Whitelist filter.
