We would like to express our great appreciation to those who have accompanied us on the journey of building ArtZero.

With a new era about to unfold, please fasten your seatbelt and get ready for the ride ahead!.

Public Sale and Whitelist Minting

The public sale of our Praying Mantis Predators (PMP) NFTs will be available in 1 phase only. There are total of 5000 PMP NFTs for public minting. Whitelist minting includes 2695 PMP NFTs for early contributors and airdrop/bounty winners. The sale will last for 15 days only.

Minting Event Information

  • Duration: 15 days

  • Public Minting Price: 75 AZERO per NFT

  • Available Amount for public sale: 5000 NFTs

  • Whitelist: Early Contributors and Winners of Airdrops/Bounty programs

  • Whitelist Minting Price: 0 AZERO

During the minting event, all Early Contributors and Winners from our previous Airdrops and Bounty programs will be able to mint without any additional cost other than network transaction fees. We will send email notification with your AZERO address and amount of NFT for confirmation.

To ensure timely distribution of your NFTs, please response to our email promptly in the event of any discrepancies or changes. Failure to do so may result in delays.


  • If you happen to be on the whitelist but unable to mint your NFTs during the minting event for any reason, please notify us. Rest assured that you will receive your NFTs, but we request your patience as we conduct a manual verification and processing of your request.

  • You can mint up to 100 NFTs per transaction and there are no restrictions on the total number that can be minted. The allocation will follow a first-come, first-served principle.

Once the minting event concluded, the marketplace and the staking contract will be enabled, allowing the owners to list the NFTs for sale or to stake the NFTs for AZERO rewards. Please kindly remind that you have to claim your reward at end of each calendar month.

Any unsold PMP NFTs in the public sale will be added back into the Airdrop/Bounty pool.

Platform Parameters


  • In order to conduct a transaction on Aleph Zero network or virtually any blockchain, a modest transaction fee must be paid, which may vary depending on the type of transaction being performed.

  • We plan to regularly review the parameters to ensure they align with the dynamic market environment. Additionally, we are currently developing the DAO, which will allow PMP NFT owners to vote on parameters changes. However, the implementation of this feature may take some time.

Trading Fee

Platform trading fee will be set at up to 5% of the selling price and applied to the seller side. Sellers can get up to 90% off the trading fee (only pay 0.5% in fee) by staking 20 or more PMP NFTs. Here is the table of trading fee at discounted rate:

Creation Fees

  • Simple Mode and Advanced Mode

It costs 150 $AZERO for users to create an NFT Collection in both Simple Mode and Advanced Mode.

Notes: In Simple Mode, owner of the NFT Collection can add unlimited numbers of NFTs to the collection and the NFT creation involves no extra cost.

In Advanced Mode, creator controls the utilities and size of NFT collection in the customized NFT Contract.

  • LaunchPad

It costs 300 $AZERO for users to create a project on ArtZero launchpad. The owner is charged 5% of the total sale.

Unstaking Time

There is a 15-day cooldown period for unstaking PMP NTFs on ArtZero. The unstaked PMP NFTs do not earn rewards during the 15-day period.

Share to PMP Stakers

The numbers remain unchanged as: 30% revenue from Trading Fee and Creation Fees and 50% rewards from running ArtZero validators will be shared among PMP Stakers at the end of each calendar month. On each month, we will lock the contract for 3 days allowing stakers to claim their rewards from the platform. Any unclaimed amount will be accumulated for next reward payment period.
