About Boomerville

Boomerville is a fictional town, an ordinary place that could be located anywhere and represents that unremarkable spot where no one would go for a vacation.

It’s the home of our characters, the so-called Boomers, and it’s the center of our fictional universe, built around them, where they lead their mediocre and uneventful lives, and where the stories we tell through our comics take place.

That’s why Boomerville, apart from being an imaginary town, is the name we use as our brand and on our social media, inviting everyone who joins us to become citizens of Boomerville.

If you’re intrigued and want to get to know our beloved characters better…

What we do

Our things are character creation, humor, irony, comic storytelling, and illustration.

It all began with the characters Ash and Tray, created during 2020’s pandemic, as symbols of a toxic, selfish, and mediocre personality type. They had their own series of comic strips released between December 2021 and September 2022 that you can find, in the form of NFTs, on secondary market, here.

As an evolution of that project, we conceived new characters and introduced them in the NFT collection We are Boomers! The starting point for this satirical universe called Boomerville.

These characters represent people who, for one reason or another, have become Boomersnot due to their age, but because of their outlook on life.

Boomerville Comics

Through our comics, we aim to narrate their stories and satirize the stereotypes embodied by our characters, always through humor and satire, drawing inspiration from references stemming from the 90s underground comic scene.

Digital Collectibles

With our collections, we seek to bring these characters to the audience in a different manner, as original artworks. Simultaneously, we involve our collectors, rewarding them for their support with custom art, discounts, and many more rewards, detailed here.

Beyond our community, we aspire to involve artists and illustrators, making them a part of our universe by collaborating on the creation of comic covers and unique illustrations through which they can channel their vision of Boomerville, expressing their style and creativity.

At the same time, we aim for our universe to expand, creating more valuable products for our collectors, both in the digital realm and the physical world.

However, we’ll delve into that discussion once the project has grown sufficiently.

About the author

My name is Rafa, aka pixelado. I was born in 1980 in the NW coast of Spain.

I grew up amidst cartoons, comics, and the dawn of video games.

My youthful dream was to become an underground comic author.

I graduated in product and graphic design, dedicating over 10 years to running my own design studio.

In 2021, my interest shifted towards the world of NFTs and the opportunities they promised for digital creators. Finally, I decided to throw myself into it and attempt to fulfill my youthful dream of becoming a comic author, even after crossing the age of 40.

And here we are!

NFTs and Cardano Blockchain

We believe in the potential and value that NFT technology brings to digital creators and collectors alike. NFTs offer a way to authenticate and verify the uniqueness of a piece, empowering creators to offer a wide array of perks and benefits to collectors. This, in turn, allows collectors to freely engage in buying and selling within specialized marketplaces, transforming these digital collectibles into valuable assets.

We chose Cardano as our platform due to its sustainability-driven philosophy, robust scientific approach to development, and its cost-effectiveness.

We’re backing the future of this technology, which we inherently view as positive, and we’re excited to contribute our bit to its widespread adoption.

Collector Perks

NFT technology allows us to verify ownership of our digital comics and collectibles and provide collectors with a wide range of advantages and benefits, such as:

  • Access to private areas on our website and our Discord community, featuring exclusive content for Collectors.
  • Discounts on the purchase of our digital and physical products.
  • Priority access to new limited edition releases.
  • Exclusive giveaways and games for Collectors only.
  • Eligibility for a customized piece, a Custom Boomer.

All of these perks, and more, add extra value to our collectibles, in addition to their intrinsic worth as original and limited pieces.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a NFT?

A NFT, or Non-Fungible Token, is a unique digital asset that represents ownership or proof of authenticity of a specific item, piece of content, or artwork using blockchain technology. Unlike traditional cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, which are fungible and can be exchanged on a one-to-one basis, NFTs are distinct and cannot be exchanged on a like-for-like basis. Each NFT has a verifiable and immutable record of ownership, making it a valuable tool for artists, collectors, and creators in the digital realm.

What is Cardano?

Cardano is a blockchain platform and cryptocurrency that aims to provide a more secure, scalable, and sustainable ecosystem for decentralized applications and smart contracts. Founded on a scientific approach, Cardano combines advanced research and technology to enhance the capabilities of blockchain networks. It focuses on key principles such as scalability, interoperability, and sustainability. Cardano’s native cryptocurrency, ADA, is used for transactions within the network and as a means of participating in its governance.

Which blockchain are Boomerville NFTs on?

Boomerville NFTs are built on the Cardano blockchain.
