What are Okay Bears?

This bear-themed NFT project was initially launched on Tuesday, April 26, on Magic Eden, the most popular Solana-based NFT marketplace.

There are 10,000 of these unique art pieces, where the mint price for each one was 1.5 SOL, which was worth approximately $145 at the time. The creators of Okay Bears want to build a metaverse community, where holders can participate in virtual events and connect with one another.

The digital art project was co-founded by two people that go by the pseudonyms of Kais and Suby. According to Okay Bears’ website, Suby was an engineer and has worked in a strategic design consulting firm that’s involved in the NFT space. Kais has a background in art and design, where he has supposedly been involved in design projects with companies such as Ford, Dell, Unicef, United Nations, and Olympus.
