Radical Penguins™ claims the glory of being the first 3D Penguin digital collectible on Radix. Each of the 10,000 unique Radical Penguins™ collectable illustrations in our colony is meticulously crafted with love, care and dedication so that they have their own identity, personality and charm.
For transparency, we do not promise any future financial gain or profit beyond the inherent (non-financial) value of the collectible itself. Our goal is to create a fun, engaging, and positive experience for our community of Penguin fans.
Radical in looks, passion and humour, sometimes peculiar, sometimes lovable, and sometimes outright weird, there is a Penguin for everybody!
Radical Penguins™ collectibles are available to view here.
If you decide to buy, sell or move your Radical Penguins you can only do so on VikingLand (never peer to peer).
We do not process any trades (as we are not a crypto asset service provider) therefore, all transaction queries must go to VikingLand (a NFT Marketplace on Radix).
Once Smart Contracts are enabled on Radix (after "Babylon") you will be able to finally mint your collectibles. This is likely to occur towards the end of 2023.
Important note: Reserving and / or trading a Radical Penguin™ collectibles is a positive acceptance of our T&Cs and Disclaimer, and VikingLand's (in case of trading).
Below are early illustration concepts (see Collection for actual collectable illustration). However, we may use the below for the future Tributes collection.
Our vision is to enable every Radical Penguins™ holder to enjoy:
• Unique and qualitative collectibles
• The founders' commitment
• Community engagement focused on positive experience for collectors
Our dream is that every one of our holders is genuinely happy and has a positive experience with their Radical Penguins™ collectible, based on the imagery quality, fantastic community and unique character.
Our belief is that collectibles can have uncompromising quality, be lots of fun and a force for good. Therefore, we do things differently, as seen by how intricately we have created the imagery for our collectables and our respectful community approach.
Our Penguin community is purpose driven and believes the same. Want to join us?

With so many collections and projects popping up and so many roadmaps promising the earth, we wanted to create a roadmap that we could definitely deliver and have materially done so. As this is an art focused project there should be no expectation of profit or gain beyond just collecting the NFTs as a collectible.
Whilst we are not promising future metaverse game releases, animated movies, coin staking and DAOs, as a collector you will be part of an early Radix collectible project which is art focused and that has tried to make the world a better place via charity donations.
We aim to be as transparent as possible, but within the limitations of being a small, hobby driven team, doing this in addition to other work and family commitments. We aim to clearly communicate the project's artistic and cultural focus, the project's reduced (to none at all) dependency on the team (once delivered), and to answer all / most questions which you may have (so please feel free to reach out and we will be happy to help).
Established in January 2022, we are two childhood best friends who came together to create an art-driven collectibles project on Radix DLT. One of us is a leading designer and founder of a US-based design mentoring school, while the other is a UK-based technologist with a deep passion for Radix. We both love Radix, its fantastic community, and want to play our part in its lore.
Please note that this is a passion project for us, as we both have full-time jobs and other commitments. We appreciate your patience and support.

Radical Penguins have rocked the boat quite a bit since launch with several projects and publications picking us up and with more to come. Have a look!
You can do whatever the Valhalla you want with your penguin. Want to use it in an upcoming crypto game, put it on your T-shirt, make a company logo, print is as sticker, do an expedition to the Antarctic with your Penguin on the flag because it's the coolest? Go right ahead, you have all the rights for commercial and personal use – with very few restrictions applicable and only for certain niche commercial uses (see T&C and contact us if needed).
All trading / moving of Radical Penguins™ will be done on a 3rd party NFT Marketplace (VikingLand), as we do not perform any crypto services. VikingLand will have their own T&C (incl. info needed to comply with legal requirements, as determined by VikingLand).
A 10% Royalty will be applicable, if you decide to trade your Radical Penguin collectibles. The Royalty helps to for cover costs, marketing and community events.
Radical Penguins™ are art focused collectible digital illustrations for sole personal collection, use and enjoyment. They are created as such and intended for fun (e.g., use as a profile picture, avatar, on a T-shirt, as a sticker, etc.). We have seen excellent examples of this when people printed Radical Penguins and displayed them at events, in their rooms or even took them to Antarctica! All project marketing is done as an art focused project to set the expectations that holding a Radical Penguin is only for their artistic / cultural value. In terms of culture we have seen amazing examples of inspiring people to donate to charity and having fun by using "/pengulife".
Therefore, Radical Penguins are NOT a financial instrument, speculative investment, security, or anything similar and we disclaim any claim to the contrary, based on how the project is positioned and marketed. We warn people to not purchase Penguins with the expectation of a speculative investment, as this is not what we stand for. As such, Penguins are not regulated and hence do not come with any security related safeguards and guarantees. Furthermore, as the technology is still emerging and as we are in a start-up phase, there is an ever-present risk of total loss of funds or permanent access to your NFT, due unfortunate, but unforeseen circumstances. An ever present risk is, if for example, people stop liking Penguins for their artistic and cultural appeal. We are forthcoming about those risks as we aim to be a responsible project.
The project team NEVER discusses nor makes any price / value based representations / warranties / promises and all promotional activity is mindfully focused only on the quality of the illustrations.
Please read the full Disclaimer and T&C for more details (including risks, limitations, technology, etc.). In summary we do not (i) promise / represent / warrant anything, (ii) owning our collectibles / NFTs presents a large number of significant risks (including sudden and total loss of value / funds), hence our NFTs are not suitable for most individuals, (iii) in general we disclaim all and any responsibility for any loss (no matter its nature) and (iv) only hold Penguins for their artistic / cultural appeal and definitely not as a speculative investment.
If you choose to trade our collectibles, please ensure that you comply with VikingLand's T&C and address any technical / trading related queries to them. If there is a dispute following a trade of Radical Penguins™ collectibles (including related to price, value, valuation, loss of value, etc.), that is a dispute solely between the buyer and seller (and not us). We disclaim all trading related liabilities and responsibly (whether that liability stems from technical challenges, or a buyer / seller challenge), see T&C for more details.
Lastly, please treat this as fun, hobby or passion, nothing more!
