Our Story

We are proud to have been part of the Cardano community since the launch of the network in 2017. We have watched the growth of the network, the technology and the community. We are excited about the potential of Cardano and can’t wait to see how it will change the world. We’re happy to be a part of it.

We started our journey building on Cardano as stake pool operators. We started the Cardano Canucks stake pool, and we were registered within an hour of the Shelley hard fork! 

Our official entrance onto the NFT scene was our very own NFT drop Canuckz-NFT. This was a whimsical take on Canadian culture and stereotypes. We were excited to get involved in this growing subculture of Cardano, and what better way to learn the process then by doing it yourself. We are proud of this first drop not only for it’s achievements and connections it made us, but also for the mistakes we made along the way, so we are able to advise others not to do the same.

From there we found ourselves connecting with amazing people in the industry that had the art and the idea but needed the technology.

Canucks Publishing is now the result of the industry needing a one stop shop to get your CNFT project off the ground. Our platform is mature and battle-tested, and supports advanced features such as drop countdowns, dynamic bundles with minimum rarities, as well as throttling mechanisms to ensure the Cardano network does not become overloaded with extremely busy drops, and ensuring a great user experience for end users.

Additionally, our near-term roadmap has many more additional features, such as advanced whitelisting capabilities, more sophisticated throttling mechanisms tied to current load on-chain, and better usability enhancements.   

We invite you to come to us with your wildest ideas for integrating crypto into your project, company or life! 

The world of possibility is only just beginning.
