Mimic Shhans is an Ethereum-based PFP NFT (Personal Avatar NFT) project by shhans.eth (Twitter: @shhan1211), based on the ERC-1155 standard. The project follows the CC0 protocol, copyright development, and has a development attitude towards commercial use and secondary creation; people in the Chinese circle generally refer to the project as “Black Cat”.
Mimic Shhans is a playful “mimic black cat” in a variety of outfits, each with a unique set of outfits, expressions and accessories. The design of a small number of rare NFTs will also be linked with other well-known NFT projects, such as BAYC and Azuki.
1.2 Artist introduction
shhans.eth, whose real name is Seung Hun Han, abbreviated as SHHAN, lives in Seoul, South Korea.
SHHAN has lived with a Russian blue cat named Niki for 9 years. Because of his love for Niki, SHHAN wanted it to live forever on the web in some form, so started drawing cats and posting them on Instagram in 2017. At first, SHHAN was not good at drawing, so he only used simple lines. In 2020, the author began to try to paint black cats, which is also the birth of the prototype of Mimic Shhans. The author himself has a relatively large pattern of the project and hopes to spread Mimic Shhans to the world.
It is worth mentioning that this project is very different in terms of dissemination, that is, SHHAN himself did not build a very centralized project operator like many other NFT projects and publish a detailed Roadmap about the project, but “leave it open to the community”. That said, Mimic Shhans didn’t have a centralized, recognized “project team” from the start. When you put on the black cat avatar, help the black cat publicize, and construct the narrative for the black cat, you are actually doing what the “project team” does to a certain extent.
