Australian Koalas on ‘Top Secret Missions’ Set for NFT Debut

By Caitlin Carey August 18, 2021 In Crypto News, Ethereum, NFTs

Move over Pudgy Penguins, the Koala Intelligence Agency (KIA) is coming through on a mission to raise some ETH.

The Koala Intelligence Agency is a cute collection of 10,000 unique Koala NFTs. Launch day is August 23, at 18:30 EST: the countdown has begun, minus six days and counting.

No fewer than 100 koalas on “special force top secret missions” will be gifted or “deployed” through the project’s Discord community. Among these are five “secret agents”. Users can recruit (mint) up to 15 koalas per transaction. Floor price for a koala NFT is 0.05 ETH (about US$150), and full commercial rights and ownership of recruited koalas will belong to the NFT owner.

Recruitment Perks

Each koala has a unique entry code, enabling every central intelligence officer (KIA NFT owner) access to KoalaHQ (a members-only club of crypto-koalas sharing top secret underground crypto information). The Private Koala Network will offer a “regulated undercover Discord channel, available for central intelligence officers to share intel and debrief accordingly“.


To add further intrigue, the project will discharge Geocache Challenges – where “stealthily located crates will be planted in real life, the locator will receive a hidden prize”, including but not limited to ETH and NFTs – and Experimental Projects, involving “future missions” that will come to light including “top secret experimental opportunities for koalas”.

Koalas are fully trained and prepared to deploy. They are masters of disguise, sifting their way through the general public without a shred of evidence left behind.

If you know anything about marketing and NFTs, a creative backstory combined with a well-executed PR campaign and strong online network of social media followers will help get you off the tarmac. Throw in a splash of philanthropy and you’ve got yourself a winner.

Conservation Component

Following the launch of the final phase of KIA’s strategic plan, Koala Academy, a donation of 12 ETH has been promised to the Australian Koala Foundation. At current prices, that’s worth around A$50,000 – not a huge amount compared to other NFT drops that raised over US$1 million on launch.

Any finer details about the KIA project are strictly top secret, lending an element of mystery to what else is to come. Other than the big launch, the roadmap on KIA’s website lacks any actual dates or further information, so stay tuned.

The “NFT Summer” remains hotter than ever. Statistics from OpenSea show Ethereum’s NFT marketplace raking in record amounts of monthly and daily transactional volume. If you want to find and surf the next big NFT wave, start by learning from the best in the game. Two influencers who keep close eyes on all things relating to NFTs are @elliotrades and @ZssBecker.
