See this research post for the reasoning behind minting Mad Lads. Below are mint details, instructions, and tips to maximize your chances of minting a Mad Lad.
This is expected to be an extremely competitive mint that will likely sell out in seconds to minutes.
In order to have a decent chance at minting one:
- Be ready at your computer (desktop, can’t mint on mobile) at least 5 minutes before mint (7pm EST)
- Have your Backpack wallet browser extension open and ready with at least 7 SOL in it.
- To keep up with any potential delays and to keep an eye out for clues for the mint riddle, follow and turn on Twitter notifications for:
- Mad Armani (Co-Founder)
- Tristan MAD (Co-Founder)
- Mad Lads (Official Twitter Profile)
- Also join the Mad Lads Discord and tune into the #announcements channel for official announcements.

…which was the clue to unlock the mint page. This is why it’s important to follow him and keep notifications on.
Apparently the response “focking mad” also worked to unlock the mint page.
Here are a few Mad Lads community catch phrases and terms that could potentially be responses that unlock the mint page.
- WAO or “We are one”
- Focking Mad
- Lads or Mad Lads
- Mad King
Everything above is speculation. They could throw a curve ball and change the process completely. This will be a difficult mint to get, so don’t be too disappointed if you do not get one.
