This project is founded by a husband-and-wife team. The artist, Cheryl, previously wrote a children’s book and her husband is behind Malibu Beach Hut. They are looking to bring generative projects to the younger generation (or their parents) and expand the NFT market overall.

I stumbled on AlphaBetty when it was shared by a member of the Slacker Duck Pond community, Shockermandan, who is part of the founding team. Alphabetty has a family focus, and their charitable contributions speak leaps and bounds to that. The art is targeting younger generations and they’ve been getting very positive feedback so far. No more questions of “Daddy, Mommy are you spending all our on JPEGs again?” and you not having a good answer. Now, you can tell them how you’re buying their new favorite character which will also be educational!
I like this project and this project team. I think they have good long term potential assuming that the IP structure incentivizes holding NFTs long term. This in my mind is similar to what Stoner Cats SHOULD be doing by including the NFT owners in the upside. AlphaBetty might be the first project targeting kids which means there is a sizable market potential. This is definitely a longer-term hold, and also reminds me of the Jenkins the Valet: Writers Room structure.
My Humble Super Biased Opinion
Clean design, it is cartoony and aesthetically pleasing. That being said, I’m not a child (sometimes), so I know it’s not made for me. I’d be curious to see how many kids pop up with these as PFPs or if they can catch on to a cult like following elsewhere.
Cheryl, the artist, has already published a children’s book about AlphaBetty and is expanding into the digital space through this project. Ken Malibu and paperlanternz, tech, are experienced in the space and this will not be their first project rollouts. Shockermandan is active in a few different discords with me, highly intelligent and I think will keep the community moving in the right direction.
Utility & Roadmap
Very charitable, supporting some great causes, Middle Street Primary School and others, but I think overall the roadmap is fairly average for now. I’ll be interested to see what they rollout as it pertains to the AlphaBetty Storyline, Community will be a huge asset to them and they loosely reference some future airdrops. The WOW factor for me will be how merch or future stories benefit NFT holders or the community wallet.
Very early, this will have to change and change quickly. The Discord is over 500 members and Twitter is now north of 600. I expect this to ramp up as we approach drop day, they have some pretty big names lurking around the Discord, but their involvement still seems yet to be determined! The hype or lack thereof is definitely brutal for their overall rating in my mind.

Disclaimer: This article is not financial advice, I will not always buy into projects even if I give them a favorable rating. I do not have the Eth to buy everything! I will be supporting this project as I look favorably on the team itself. The NFT and Cryptocurrency markets are very volatile. Please don’t invest what you can’t afford to lose. Always do your own research before investing.
