The Bankers NFT Mint Pass: Secure Your Bankers in Advance
At Unbanked, we’re committed to building a suite of CeFi and DeFi products that not only look good but have real-world utility. If you’ve been paying attention to our project over the last few months, you might have noticed that, in addition to our crypto-friendly debit cards and global bank accounts, we’re been chattering a lot about NFT’s. And no wonder since we announced a few months ago that we would soon be releasing our Bankers NFT collection.
We’ve been so overwhelmed by the positive response from our community about this upcoming drop so, as a special holiday gift for our community, we’re now releasing more information on how to get your mint pass ahead of the holiday season.
What Is It
The Bankers NFT is a collection of 10,000 unique NFT’s designed by renowned Pudgy Penguins artist, Antoine Mingo. But more than just looking cool, each Banker comes with some pretty awesome perks, including shared IP rights and lifetime access to Unbanked’s upcoming lending and borrowing protocol.

Mint Pass Ahead of The Drop
After seeing so much excitement from the community and having conversations collecting feedback in Discord, we knew a white-list made sense. We also wanted to ensure our existing Unbanked customers had the best chance possible at getting a Banker. The Mint Pass guarantees your ability to Mint a Banker without bidding in the auction on the day of the Drop on January 31st.
The Mint Pass also allows you to mint at a time of your choosing and avoid potential expensive transaction fees. It’s possible that on January 31st the ETH gas fees will be very high. Ethereum’s gas fees increase based on network usage and the most important metric is the traffic on the Ethereum network. In plain English, the more people trying to make transactions at a given point, the higher the gas fees which can increase your cost of securing a Banker.
What You Need to Know
- On Monday, December 20th, we will launch a special Mintpass for 72 hours, with a flat price of 0.087 ETH (approximately $350). This will allow anyone interested in a Banker to get in before the public sale. Watch your inbox!
- Mintpass holders will be able to mint on the day of the public sale, Monday, January 31, 2022, or anytime thereafter.
- The public sale of the Bankers drop will be similar to a dutch auction. This means we start with the highest bid first to initiate the Banker sale. The price will continue to decline until all Bankers are sold out or the floor price is reached. Bidding will start at $800 worth of ETH and decline every 30 minutes until it reaches a floor of $200 worth of ETH.
- Once the public sale is live, any Bankers left over after 72 hours will be burned
How to Get in On the Mintpass
- Register for an account at Unbanked.com. We will email everyone as soon as the drop is open and you can initiate your purchase.
- Make sure you have created a Crypto Profile in your Unbanked Dashboard and your ETH address is listed in the profile. You can find directions on setup here.
- An email will be sent to you when the drop is open with a URL to mint.
