What are the benefits of holding a RarePass?
RarePass is a truly historic cryptoart collecting opportunity. With a single transaction, pass holders are able to secure a collection from some of the most prolific crypto artists in the world. Each pass receives:
1x guaranteed monthly airdrop from a rotating roster of legendary crypto artists for 12 months. Each Airdrop artist will produce a series of 250 unique 1/1 artworks that will be airdropped straight to wallets that hold a RarePass each month. Wallets holding multiple passes will receive 1x airdrop per pass held per month.
3x opportunities per month to win 1 of 3 unique 1/1 artworks, where winners will be selected via a provably random on-chain mechanism giving each pass holder an equal chance (1 in 250) to win. Each Special Release artist will produce 3 unique 1/1 artworks which will be randomly distributed to 3 pass holders. Wallets holding multiple passes will receive 3x opportunities per pass held per month.
Additional benefits to be announced over the course of the program.

Can I sell my RarePass?
Yes, you can sell your RarePass at any time on SuperRare.com but there are added benefits to being a hodler. Read more about secondary sale royalties and the benefits to holding the RarePass below
Can I buy a RarePass or RarePass artworks on secondary NFT Markets?
Yes! All RarePasses will be available on SuperRare.com after the Dutch Auction ends. In addition, all RarePass artworks will be listed on SuperRare.com after they are airdropped to pass holders each month. SuperRare is the preferred marketplace for secondary RarePass & RarePass artwork purchases and will honor both artist & collector royalties. Always check the royalty rules before purchasing from a marketplace and remember - royalties support the sovereignty and independence of crypto artists & help ensure the continuation of the digital renaissance.
What’s the RarePass Primary / Secondary sale & royalty / fee structure?
The proceeds of the primary sale of RarePass #1 will be split: 10% to the participating RarePass artist pool, 75% to SuperRare Labs and 15% to the SuperRare DAO. The proceeds of the primary sale from passes #2-209 will be split 10% to the participating RarePass artist pool, 15% to our technical partners at Transient Labs, and 75% to SuperRare Labs (with 15% commission going to the SuperRare DAO). Secondary royalties on RarePass sales will be split 45% to the participating artist pool, 45% to the SuperRare DAO and 10% to Transient Labs. 100% of the secondary royalties on RarePass program artworks will go to the contributing artists - the same as any normal transaction on SuperRare. SuperRare will also honor collector royalties for transactions that occur via the SuperRare marketplace. Read more below
As a collector, why should I use superrare.com to buy RarePass artwork over other marketplaces?
As with all artwork that originates on SuperRare, there is a collector royalty paid on all qualifying sales, funded by SuperRare’s network fee and paid on a monthly basis. That means collectors of the RarePass aren’t just getting airdropped artworks, but they’ll also become the first collectors of those works on SuperRare for the purpose of collector royalties calculations. Read more about how the SuperRare collector royalty program works here.
What is the artist artwork release schedule?
The artist release calendar will remain secret. Each month, RarePass holders will receive a unique 1/1 artwork from 1 of the 12 participating Airdrop Artists in addition to the opportunity to receive 1 of 3 unique 1/1 artworks from each of the 12 rotating Special Release Artists.
Airdrop Artworks will be released to Pass Holders the 1st week of each month. Special Release Artworks from the randomized monthly Special Release giveaways will be released following winner selection during the 3rd week of each month.
Once I buy a RarePass, how do I receive artwork?
No further entry, minting or opt-in is required. Thanks to the clever engineering by our partners at Transient Labs, artworks will be distributed to RarePass holders at the time of the designated release automatically. Each wallet containing a RarePass at the time of the monthly distribution will receive the artwork distribution(s) to which it is entitled.
What partners are involved with the pass?
We are working with several partners across the Web3 sphere to bring continuous value to Pass Holders throughout the course of the program. At launch, we’ve announced official partnerships with Async.art, Infinite Objects, MoonPay, NETGEAR/Meural, Punk 6529’s Open Metaverse (OM), Tessera (Fractional.Art), and Transient Labs. Interested in becoming a strategic partner? Reach out via [email protected].
