A Deep Dive: GOATz
There is a lot of information to cover on this project, so let’s get right into it. This article will cover GOATz, KIDz, Look of the Week (LOTW), $GMILK, The Forge and GOATzVILLE. I had the pleasure of speaking with Punter (@NYCPunter) to talk everything GOATz.
- Mint Date: July 8th, 2021 (sold out in under 1 hour)
- Supply: 10,000
- Current Supply: 7,173
I’m sure you’re wondering why there is initial supply and current supply. We will get to that point. GOATz is a genesis collection launched on the Ethereum blockchain back in July of 2021. They all belong to an exclusive clubhouse known as the Maison De GOAT.
Look of the Week
I was first introduced to GOATz back in August of 2021. It was actually my first NFT (it was a gift) and not really understanding much about NFTs, I hopped on to their website. I discovered a tab called “Look of the Week”. You connect your wallet, choose which GOAT you want to have that look, and there you have it, a fresh PFP to put on your socials. Most times their ”look of the week” has a charitable donation component, which is one way that GOATz gives back. Below are the past looks of the week.

Look of the week is just a natural extension of The Forge, which is what we will get into now.
To keep it simple, The Forge is where two GOATz go in and only one GOAT comes out.
Through a token burning contact you are able to take two GOATz, select the traits you prefer, and the traits you don’t choose are burned and removed from the ecosystem forever. This is important for a few reasons. Currently, the community has burned off more than 28% of their total supply. The Forge allows holders to curate and customize their GOATz and make them more rare by burning off traits. In a world where your NFT is your PFP it can sometimes be difficult to find one that suits you. The Forge allows you to do just that, curating an exact PFP of the traits that you want.
With each Forged GOAT, you then choose the style of house you want built. Each newly forged GOAT in GOATzVILLE gets a unique home built for them in tribute in the Sandbox Metaverse. For more information click the easy to follow link below “How To Forge“ by GOATz Media.
KIDz is a 3,000-set companion collection. Anyone who Forged a GOAT before the Claim window closed on October 28th, 2021, received a KIDz, while the rest went to public sale. When KIDz was launched, they also introduced “Burn for KIDz”. It was an incentive for people to pick up floor GOATz, burn them, and receive a KIDz. The result was a reduction in the supply of GOATz and more KIDz distributed in the initial drop.
Within the total supply of 3,000 KIDz there are four 1/1 super rare. Three of the four have been located, leaving just one. KIDz are still minting and have only 500 left. It’s important to know that KIDz will be the staking mechanism to earn $GMILK, which we will get right into. If you are interested in minting with a chance of receiving a 1/1 click the link below.
The important thing to know about $GMILK is that there is no monetary value ascribed to it.
1 $GMILK = 1 $GMILK
It is an in-ecosystem ERC-20 token that exists on the Ethereum Blockchain.
- There is a max supply of 1,000,000,000 tokens
- They can be transferred across the Ethereum Blockchain
- They are deflationary
- Can be exchanged for abilities and items within the GOATz universe
- Can be earned, won or lost

The last thing I want to mention about this project is in regards to what the team is building in the Metaverse. GOATzVILLE is a virtual community for holders currently being built in Sandbox. They have also acquired land in NFT Worlds. The importance of this is to understand that there are a lot of different Metaverses being built and some are moving at quicker speeds than others. The team wants to have a diversified approach to the Metaverse to ensure a solid community. Below is a quick clip of what to expect in GOATzVILLE.
In my opinion, this is an exciting project. At his core, the founder (@KRHFT), is a game builder / Metaverse builder and is always thinking about P2E (Play to Earn). While they started as a PFP project, the team is now taking those conversations had in Discord and bringing them to their Metaverse, GOATzVILLE. Most agree the future of Web3 lies in the Metaverse and GOATz is uniquely positioned to capitalize on that future growth trend.
