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 crafted with love, care and dedication so that they have their own identity, personality and charm.
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 or trade your Radical Penguin go to VikingLand (the largest Radix NFT marketplace) and a 10% royalty will apply for each trade (transfers have a small admin charge only).
Only trade / move our Penguins on VikingLand (not peer to peer).
We do not process any trades (as we are not a crypto asset service provider) therefore, all trading queries must go to VikingLand.
Once Smart Contracts are enabled on Radix (after "Babylon") you will be able to finally mint your NFTs. This is likely to occur towards the end of 2023.
Important note: Reserving and / or trading a Radical Penguin™ NFT 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). We may use the below for the future Tributes collection.
Our vision is to enable every Radical Penguins™ holder to enjoy:
• Quality 3D Penguin NFT illustrations
• The founders long term commitment
• Radix community engagement
Our dream is that every one of our holders is genuinely happy with their Radical Penguins™ illustration, based on the imagery quality, fantastic community and unique character.
Our belief is that NFTs 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.
Our Penguin community is purpose driven and believes the same. Want to join us?

One is a leading designer and founder of a US based creative agency, the other is a UK based technologist with a deep passion for Radix.
