Hello, We are writing this message to update the RobotHeads community with the current status of the project and to give you an idea of what is going on. We would like to apologize for the lack of updates recently. We understand this has been a very stressful period not only for the team but also for the community. We avoided pushing any updates before our decisions were confirmed. We now have a clear outline of the project moving forward.
What is going on?
As everyone is already aware, the Solana blockchain is experiencing many difficulties at this time. Many are still experiencing issues with their transactions and we, unfortunately, are part of that group. Our successful test mint was used to determine the viability of our mint site and candy machine. However, Solana’s issues are not something we could have anticipated, and due to circumstances out of our control, we have not been able to upload our collection seamlessly. We have been working to find solutions all week, to no avail.
We do not know when Solana’s issues will be fixed and can therefore not guarantee a Solana drop in a timely manner. Due to this, the decision was made to change blockchains. Although it was a very difficult decision, ultimately, if we cannot give our community what we want so desperately to share, there is no use in chain loyalty.
For all the BetaHeads owners, please do not worry. Holding this NFT will give you access to a whitelist on all future drops. We will continue to service the BetaHeads project on Solana. BetaHeads will not be delisted from Magic Eden.
We have seen a lot of innovation in the Solana space, which makes us very happy. We would like to thank Metaplex and the Exiled Apes team for all their help. We wish them all the best in the future.
Where is RobotHeads going?
We will be shifting to the Terra blockchain. Terra uses fiat-pegged stablecoins that offer censorship resistance in addition to affordability and speed. Terra’s native token is LUNA, which functions as a stabilizer for the protocol’s stablecoins as well as a governance token.
Terra’s use of fiat-pegged stablecoins is particularly important, as you are able to reap the borderless benefits of cryptocurrencies with the stability of fiat currencies. This would help give everyone security and stability.
Terra is home to small, tight-knit communities, which is exactly what we are aiming to become. Since the start of our project, our objective has been to develop a similar community in the Solana ecosystem. Unfortunately, we could not do that there, but in the Terra ecosystem, we will fit in perfectly.
What comes next?
It is the holiday season, and after some gloom and doom recently, what better time for some holiday cheer?
We have developed a very special Holiday Collection. We want to give our persevering members a chance to purchase quality NFTs before the year ends, and as both an apology and as a surprise, we created Holiday Editions of the ProtoHeads just for you! Details are as follows:

As we enter a new chapter of our project, we will have to adapt and grow. As a result, there will be a few changes to our staff.
Albertbog10 will be promoted to Community Liaison effective immediately. I (Cyber Andrew) will be accepting a role as Administrator of the project. I would like to say thank you for all the love you have given to this project and to me, and I request the same affection be shown to Albert. He has been working so diligently for the past 2 months and deserved all of the recognition he receives. Our moderation team has been assigned as well. They are listed as follows:
David Bless - Moderator and Head of the Indonesian Chat.
Frank - Moderator and Head of the Nigerian Chat
Manny - Moderator and Head of the Spanish Chat
The Artist Extraordinaire’s role is unchanged and he will continue in that capacity.
Thank you for all of your support and we hope to see you all on Terra.
