Letter #2 to citizens of BWO
As we inch towards 1000 followers, we have a few important announcements to make. Unlike 10 different projects popping up every other way, we didn’t pay “crypto promoters” or “paid influencers” and we certainly didn’t make any false promises about play-to-earn games in our roadmap.
We are here to create the first ever decentralized nation in the world. To that end, we know we will succeed. We have been busy building our population organically, slowly and steadily.
We have done giveaways within our discord citizen node and on twitter, but we haven’t gone overboard with them and stuck to doing it with projects that we ourselves have used and believe in. Holaplex is the only project we’ve collaborated with till now.
Growing organically takes time. It’s hilarious to see how most projects here are reaching tens of thousands of followers by botting up their own discords and twitter, but I guess fooling others by creating artificial demand is more important to them than building something of use. At BWO, we strive to be better than them, and today’s announcements will prove that again.
These new announcements are new amendments which have been added to our constitution.
We’re launching the first ever text-based role playing game using NFTs called “Legendary Duels.”
You can read play the rules about how to play these duels in our constitution. If you have bought one or more ducks in our early auctions, you can join our discord citizen node and play it against other verified citizens right now.
We’ve intentionally kept the guidelines simple, and it’s fairly easy to understand so that everyone who wants to play, can play this. If you’ve never played a RPG like Dungeons & Dragons, our Legendary Duels should still be easy to grasp.

Mint Price, Date and Launch thoughts
We will have a mint price of less than 1 Sol. We’re aiming for a price that corresponds to $50 in Sol when we launch. Because we’ve chosen the organic path, our growth has been slow and influencers are busy shilling their bags of NFT projects that paid them. But we’re not an NFT project. We’re a country. To that end, we will experiment, we will build, we will invade and conquer, but the one thing that we won’t do is- we will never deceive our citizens.
This is why our biggest supporters are not influencers or promoters with deep pockets and infinite bots, but it is normal people who believe in the possibility of a decentralized nation and are actively spreading the word to help build this.
While we understand that launching after we reach 10k or more followers makes more sense, a stealth launch that allows our citizens to buy at mint price and then spread the word would be a faster but unconventional iteration.
We have stayed under the radar by not following the herd, and it might be time to take advantage of that.
This’ll allow both kinds of citizens- new and old to hold as many ducks as they want, get their friends to buy and play the Legendary Duels together. As the market evolves, it’ll also be easier for our citizens to flip and make a profit on their holdings now, rather than when sol appreciates.
If we do a stealth launch, we will announce it through this newsletter first. If we don’t, here’s where we’ll let you know.
That is all. Thank you for reading this and for sticking with us. Have a great day or night, wherever you are.
