We got the technology and development chops:
Each Tool of Rock is unique and programmatically generated from over 170 possible traits, including Pick Design, Pick Shape, Album Artwork, Vinyl, Frame, Background, Date, Rock History, and Vinyl Label. While each Tool of Rock is unique and stands on its own as a work of art and a piece of rock history, some are much rarer than others!
Tools of Rock are stored as ERC-721 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain and hosted on IPFS (Record and Proof available after minting). Purchasing a Tool of Rock NFT costs 0.069 ETH.
Tools of Rock is built on the latest Solidity version ~0.8. Since a lot of the contracts copy paste code, they end up using older versions that results in more expensive gas. Newer versions are much more secure and efficient in terms of gas, ultimately allowing you to get more for your money!
The best Solidity contracts in the industry today are of OpenZeppelin (“OZ”). All of the contracts use OZ but OZ has been changing quite a lot and came up with a lot of utilities. Tools of Rock leverages OZ's new stuff as well as the Counters library, Address library, etc. This adds to robustness of code (more secure, battle-tested and efficient) and separates us further from the pack as very few contracts are using these libraries.
Tools of Rock is setting the standard with its code with its withdrawal feature, further assisting the buyer securing their prized Tool of Rock.
Tools of Rock has conducted significant testing and recognize that the devil is in the details…so we pay a lot of attention to automated tests. For the basic features, we've built 208 tests (all passing). This level of detail and nuance is driven by our development team’s deep experience in the fintech industry, especially the payments space where testing is of utmost importance.
While many smart contracts in the market today strip out on-chain provenance we DO NOT do that. Tools of Rock believes that provenance hashes are very important for NFTs.

MEET THE BAND
Prior to forming the Tools of Rock band in his garage, JJ has worked in private equity, investment banking, and co-founded a leading med-tech company. He’s a passionate Bored Ape Yacht Club supporter and overall degen when not building Tools of Rock.
While he’s always had a love of music, he never made it past playing guitar in the worship band at church.
Jagger and JJ have been close friends for nearly 5 years, so when JJ needed a Band Manager, there was only one logical solution! Leveraging his tech and computer background, Jagger is perfect for managing the Band…and social channels! Jagger and his late father deeply connected over “Rock n Roll” and he now blesses our team and the Tools of Rock community with his generational knowledge.
