Besides the Bored Ape: what NFTs are worth watching?

20 Jul 2022 | Cryptocurrency news

Back when they were first brought up, we all thought that NFTs were just a random fad that would be gone before we knew it. 

But, in actuality, what ended up happening is NFTs became a very important part of the cryptocurrency space and even beyond it, to the point where nowadays, the NFT market is worth billions of dollars. 

NFTs or Non-fungible tokens are cryptographic assets on a blockchain. The NFTs are assets that contain unique identification codes and metadata. 

Many people compare NFTs to regular art pieces, but that is quite an unfair comparison because NFTs can never be copied or duplicated due to their unique factors. 

So, because of this uniqueness, NFTs have skyrocketed in price. While they may be expensive, they are also very popular and NFT traders have managed to make profits after buying and selling them on the NFT marketplace.

As such, for today we decided to give you a brief rundown of the top NFTs that you should be watching right now.

CryptoPunks 

There are a total of 10,000 NFTs in this collection right now, and the price per unit has increased exponentially due to how popular it got in the art world.

CryptoPunks NFTs are hosted on the Ethereum blockchain, and the main draw of each of these “Punks” is the fact that they all have their very own characteristics and aesthetics. 

Many people believe that the visual part of the NFTs shouldn’t matter all that much, but honestly, why shouldn’t you go for something you enjoy looking at while also making a profit? 

These NFTs have also been owned by several celebrities, including Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Logan Paul, and Steve Aoki of all people, which has increased their prices even further by now. 

Pudgy Penguins 

If CryptoPunks is not cute enough for you then you can always go for a Pudgy Penguin instead. There are a total of 8,888 NFTs in this collection, and as you can tell from this picture, every NFT showcases a unique cartoon penguin with a wide array of characteristics and accessories.

Pudgy Penguins may actually be one of the few competitors out there that can rival the likes of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, mostly because this collection has also caught the eye of a lot of investors due to its popularity online. 

Doodles 

There are a total of 10,000 NFTs in this collection right here, but what separates it from any other collection out there is the fact that each one of these unique pieces of art was created by a trio of famous digital artists known as Tulip, Poopie and Burnt Toast.

The collection is made up of unique 2D characters that are all different in their own right, and even though it was launched back in October 2021, it almost immediately sold off on the internet. 

Right now, the floor price of the Doodles is around 13 ETH which is about 20,000 USD (by July 20th).

Souls of Nature

The Souls of Nature collection may be one of the coolest NFT projects we’ve ever seen, and for good reason too. While they have not yet released any NFTs on the open market, they did state that they will eventually make their way online by Q3 in 2022.

What makes this collection so amazing is the fact that their plan is very elaborate, as they created the collection for the metaverse, promising a wide array of play-to-earn features. This in itself makes this a very important NFT collection to look forward to.

Girls, Robots, Dragons 

The “Girls, Robots, Dragons” comprises 9,000 NFTs, showcasing 15 different characters, with five of them being girls, five being robots and five being dragons, as the name implies.

The collection was also built on the Ethereum blockchain, and interestingly enough, it will only be available in two phases, with the first 3,000 NFTs being available in the first sale and the rest of them being available afterward to purchase via $DUST utility tokens. 

The “Girls, Robots, Dragons”  were created by Hungarian artists Zoltan Boros and Gabor Szikszai, and we honestly have to say that their designs are just downright stunning, to say the least, especially if you love fantasy and sci-fi together. 

Conclusion 

Each one of these collections is beautiful and has a broad audience who believes they are worth the investment. And that’s the beauty of NFTs. It may start as a hobby and one day has a market value!
