y00ts NFT:

Previously known as Duppies, y00ts is a collection of 15,000 NFTs on the Solana blockchain from Dust Labs, the founders of the DeGods NFT Collection. y00ts has a unique utility that enables holders to customize their NFT traits, granting ownership and the ability to set the price/supply of the trait(s), selling the entire ⓨ copyright, and earning 5% royalties on every sale. To mint a y00ts NFT, users will need $DUST, the native token of the DeGods ecosystem.

 Implementation of y00t copyright, y00t Paper, and Marketplace

The y00t paper outlines the “common-sense approach to NFT copyright, IP and ownership”. Think of it as a way of registering a copyright, but instead of centralized control of the IP right, the NFT collection (y00ts NFT) serves as the governing body. Unlike other NFT collections that grant holder-specific IP rights or C00 licenses, y00ts functions as a registry that tracks who is approved to use the NFT’s IP, thus enabling holders to build businesses and sub-communities around the new licensing implementation.


  • We create the “y00ts st0re” for artists to submit their custom versions of traits.
  • Artists will own the IP of their work & collect a % of royalties
  • Holders can purchase the community-created traits from the store.
  • Holders can only apply one customized trait to their NFTs per month.
  • Community members can create & officially register sub-communities/sub-DAOs


y00ts store is a native marketplace for custom-made y00t traits. To submit a trait it must first meet the following approval criteria:

  • Must fit the same space as the original trait (can not turn a t-shirt into a fur coat)
  • Must be identifiable by the original metadata tag (a hat can’t become a crown)
  • No hate speech or pornographic imagery
  • No direct usage of existing copyrighted IP
  • Meet a standard of quality to match the collection

Approved trait(s) grants y ownership to the holder(s), enabling him/her to set the price/supply of the trait(s), sell the entire ⓨ copyright, and earn 5% royalties on every sale.
