Q1 Progress and What’s Next?
Hi pioneers! It’s been a while! How have you been doing?

The progress of Bored Punks of Society has far outweighed our expectations and garnered a lot of attention from both crypto and non-crypto enthusiasts alike throughout our country. We are very amazed to what we have achieved with the community these past few months and are more motivated to continue and improve what we have started in service for the Filipino people. We are very grateful for the community we have built together, the healthy culture we have established, and the people who have supported us along this journey in paving the way for crypto and NFT adoption here in the Philippines. Our movement is just starting, there is a long road ahead of us to be paved, and we know that you, together with the bored punks community, are here to pave it with us. No matter what happens, no matter what the floor price is, and what the whole market sentiment is, we are here to educate and innovate, we are here to pioneer the Filipino NFT scene, and we are here to inspire.

Q1 2022 Reflections
Q1 has been an extensive experimentation stage for BPOS. For the past few months, our team has tested out different approaches on developments for the long term sustainability of Bored Punks of Society.
We deeply apologize for the lack of communication from the core team within lately. We realized that, had we placed our attention to the community effort rather than the overwhelming reach of what we are building, we could’ve maintained an efficient and well-adjusted strategy to tackle the stages ahead. The team have learned so much, from the progress that we, as a community of talented traders, investors and innovators, have made along the way to the trial-and-error our team had this first quarter. We are eager to be better and work harder for the community and stakeholders.
We are very grateful for everyone who supported us along this journey and are still here supporting us. The Bored Punks of Society team will do better this time.
In Q2 we will make it up to you. We will focus more on community efforts, make a push for web3 innovation, and listen more to the suggestions that you put forth. We will start by going through the list below which includes key-points from previous community discussions and talks.
Following are the plans we aim to achieve moving into Q2:
- BPOS Mini Esports Community Tournament (ongoing)
- Trading calls and alpha calls holders exclusivity
- Reward systems for weekly games and events exclusivity
- Middle-man system that will benefit BPOS trade volume
- Discussion for rare, pioneer, and special bored punks

The Bored Punk DNA
A first look into the our new and updated NFT roadmap
Unlike the usual linear roadmap, Bored Punks of Society presents the DNA strand model. Where we would focus on three “strands” that are: (1)advocacy, (2)innovation, and (3)connecting the digital to the physical. This is a more in-depth look on our old roadmap that is divided into phases and three areas we are planning to disrupt for the next 3–5 years in building the NFT scene in the Philippines with the community.
With the goal to be the premier NFT brand paving way for crypto and NFT adoption in the Philippines, we proudly present our Bored Punks of Society DNA that we are confident is a long term and sustainable road ahead for the brand and community we have built.
Our advocacy is how we will educate and bring more awareness on our movement and the new technology we are in. Bored Punks of Society started by educating Play-to-Earn scholars which expanded into educating every Filipino possible who are interested enough to take a leap and discover something bigger than themselves. Bored Punks of Society stays with this commitment to onboard and serve as the people’s foundation into the world of crypto and investing that is why our movement in educating people is important in including it in our DNA.
In order to bring more interest and curiosity to the mass, we are committed to innovate as much as possible to bring out the potential within the technology we are in. We believe that everything that is happening in the NFT world right now is new and experimental and we are here to experiment and innovate with the rest of the builders with the goal to shape the future with crypto and financial literacy through NFT technology and bring an experience that our community will enjoy and benefit from.
Also, what better way to get the word out and our movement is by connecting the digital to the physical world. Starting with our soon-to-be-released BPOS exclusive cards to collaborations with a well-known Filipino clothing brand, our aim is to bring more exposure to our brand, spark interest, and onboard as much people as possible on our movement. We cant just stay inside of our niche, the best way to expand is taking a leap and getting out of our bubble.
