The Noun Cats project was my “gateway” to the Nouns ecosystem. It is the first place where I found these projects embracing completely public CC0 licenses, and I thought the project was really fun. Over a couple of times I ended up minting 8 different Invisibles from the project.
While they were developing the project further they even created a spin-off project for Early Birbs, and I have my set of those too.
The project never “minted out”, so the folks behind it pivoted and recently made it so you can get the Noun Cats that match your Invisibles. I decided to keep my invisibles and mint the cats to go with them. The mint was only available directly via the contract in Etherscan, which I hadn’t done before. But after I crafted my API call the transaction worked fine. I’ve now got my full squad.
