Rough conditions on OpenSea


There was a technical problem with OpenSea throughout our August 2021 launch week - no transactions could be made. We have since fully refunded the small amount of transactions that somehow made it through, and we're now busy revising our proposition. Thank you for your understanding and support.


This website will be updated, so the details on this website are subject to change.


Boaty McBoatface remains culturally significant on a global scale, with a huge RL community. We're working on a 2022 re-launch ...so stay tuned!!

James Hand x DHW

James has teamed-up with UK artist and designer DHW, to create 600 uber-rare, crypto collectible, McNFTs that fractionalise ownership of his iconic Boaty McBoatface phenomenon. Only 560 of the 600 McNFT collectibles will be available for purchase; the remaining 40 are set aside for collector bonus purposes.

This site contains thumbnails of all 600 McBoatfaces for information purposes only. Information relating to our marketplace partner OpenSea, is available in the partners section of this website.

Do not confuse with typical 10k PFPs

McNFTs are priced differently because:


  • Total just 600 available, not 10,000

  • IP with top-tier Internet meme provenance, not a clone of something else

  • Not generative art, each digitally illustrated

  • Percentage ownership of Boaty McBoatface phenomenon "trait" up to 10%

  • Less risk than generic 10k PFPs; existing trademark, existing RL goodwill/community

  • Collector bonus mechanism - 40 x McNFTs to unlock

  • Because Boaty McBoatface
