NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are a collection of unique virtual assets that are currently attracting everyone, from investors and cryptocurrency owners to celebrities and artists. With the rising demand, many popular brands are resorting to launching their own NFT collection as it has starkly diminished the need for any store outlets and mediators. Instead, the producers are directly able to connect with the consumer. The month of April in 2022 has seen many NFT projects, and since it’s the end of the month, we have a curated list of the best NFT projects that we saw this month that deserve your attention!
Launching an NFT based on sneakers was on the cards for a long time. Various companies such as RTFKT have attempted to launch their own NFT sneakers collections, yet it hadn’t quite worked out well in the past. Soon, Nike acquired RTFKT, which launched its rare NFT collection of sneakers. They are a set of NFTs that have unique designs indulging in vibrant colours. These virtual assets can be worn by players in the metaverse while playing games such as Decentraland, etc.
Soon after the collection hit the market, it became one of the best NFT projects of the month. 9000 NFTs got sold till now, and the floor price remains at 1.85 ETH. Few are willing to pay as much as $100,000 for these trendy sneakers. We believe that it is only the beginning for both mainstream and upcoming brands to launch physical products in virtual worlds. With the growing popularity of metaverse, P2E games, etc., the demand for these NFTs will only grow.
With the growing popularity of PFP NFT projects, moonbirds have managed to ride the rising tide. Many were surprised when Moonbirds minted with a floor price of 2.5 ETH, but it had managed to outdo itself when the collection took off to mint at 20 ETH just after two days. Moonbirds has managed to top the list on Opensea, where its volume was higher than the combined volume of its next nine competitors.
Moonbirds is a collection of 10,000 PFP NFTs featuring owls. Apart from having the right to use these NFTs for their utilities, the holders have various other perks. One such perk is access to the PROOF collective, a private community created by Kevin Rose. One of the main factors that had helped this NFT collection gain such popularity was Kevin Rose, a well-known NFT collector. Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, is also an investor in this project.
Another unique feature of Moonbird’s NFT collection is nesting. It means that long-term holders of these NFTs will be able to reap various benefits of the PROOF community. As a result, the Moonbirds NFT collection is perhaps one of the biggest and most successful launches of the year.
It is a collection of 5,000 tokens comprising horses, stables, lands, and racing silks available to purchase on Opensea. These Avatars can participate in various horse races in the metaverse and earn rewards. Hence, it is essentially a play-to-earn game. Silk Avatar represents each player’s unique identity in the game. This game was one of the earliest P2E games which aims at bridging the gap between Web3, metaverse and crypto. Each horse in the game is based on a real horse, and players can track its prowess and progress online.
Within a short span, it had become one of the best NFT projects of all time, and the launch of its new collection had got everyone waiting. Owning this NFT will not only help you become a part of this community but will also open you up to great opportunities and perks associated with this collection in the future.
