The Rarest NFTs From the Best-Selling PFP Collections

Comments are off for this post.
Among the best-selling NFT collections out there, some pieces hold a strong potential to become uniquely defining assets of the mythos of each collection. But these don’t always sell for the highest price on the open market. Sometimes, they possess one of the most highly sought-after qualities across the entire NFT space: rarity. In the case of generative PFP NFTs, the rarest pieces are generated at random. How? They possess the rarest combination of traits found in each collection. If you ever wondered what those pieces might be within the top NFT collections currently available on the market, then look […]

Exclusive: Rug Radio Announces “Faces of Web3” With Cory Van Lew

Comments are off for this post.
Until recently, the Web3 media landscape had been vast and desolate. While the NFT ecosystem continues to expand, few entities have taken up the cause to inform and educate the public about the future of digital ownership and blockchain-based prosperity that exists just over the horizon. But among those few, Rug Radio has quickly gained a foothold in the industry as a prominent voice of Web3 culture. A digitally-native outlet, Rug Radio — founded by NFT collector and prominent Web3 builder Farokh Sarmad — prides itself on being the first fully decentralized media platform. Through shared ownership, creators and consumers […]

5 Reddit Avatar Collections Leading the Latest NFT Market Surge

Comments are off for this post.
If there’s one salient fact emerging from the NFT space, it’s that people go wild for PFP NFTs. From CryptoPunks to Bored Apes, NFT enthusiasts are more gung-ho on generative avatars than nearly anything Web3’s seen so far. So it makes perfect sense that in the ever-evolving market, Reddit Collectible Avatars are surpassing everyone’s expectations. Based on the social platform’s mascot, Snoo, the popularity of Reddit NFTs can be traced back to the platform’s first NFT collection, released back in June 2021. But the latest wave of exceedingly popular Reddit Avatars differs from the first four artistic interpretations of its Snoo that […]

A Guide to Meebits: More than Just 3D CryptoPunks

Comments are off for this post.
Although perhaps best known for kicking off the PFP NFT craze with the CryptoPunks collection in 2017, Larva Labs didn’t rest on its heels following that massive “W.” Since then, it’s launched Autoglyphs, an on-chain generative NFT art collection, and of course, Meebits. A 20,000-piece collection of PFP NFTs hosted on the Ethereum blockchain may very well represent the future of this type of NFT. Launched in May 2021, Meebits can be viewed as the spiritual successor to the still-iconic CryptoPunks collection. And, if CryptoPunks functions as the ideal 2D avatar for Web2 social media accounts, Meebits aims to be […]

The Alpha: As per a Bloomberg report, Yuga Labs is facing an investigation from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on the legality of the sales of its high-value NFT offerings. Most notably, that includes pieces from the renowned Bored Ape Yacht Club collection that’s turned PFP NFTs into a Web3 household name. Best-known in the NFT space for creating the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection, Yuga Labs has used the success of its flagship project to build a burgeoning media empire, spanning endorsements from major sports leagues, high fashion brands, and even a metaverse-ready gaming experience.

Bigger Than Middle Earth? An Inside Look at Forgotten Runes Wizards Cult

Comments are off for this post.
In the world of traditional media, IPs often have to wait to receive a big-budget adaptation before mainstream audiences embrace them. For instance, George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones took 15 years to receive an adaptation — and audiences across a wide gamut of demographics ate it up. However, in the spirit of Web3 making new approaches possible, the Forgotten Runes Wizard’s Cult hopes to flip that meta on its head. “We’re speedrunning the next big fantasy franchise,” said Forgotten Runes co-creator Dotta in an interview with nft now. How big? “Bigger than Middle Earth, Westeros, and Hogwarts combined,” […]

Anime PFPs: 6 Stunning NFT Projects Bringing a New Generation to Web3

Comments are off for this post.
For as long as users have set their own PFPs on community sites, one type of imagery has dominated the space — the anime PFP. From the 90s to the mid-2000s, Western anime fans were primarily interested in hits like Dragon Ball Z, which appeared on Cartoon Network’s Toonami programming block, and Cowboy Bebop on Adult Swim. As a result, anime PFPs used during this era tended to feature characters from these specific shows. Seeing the likes of Goku, Vegeta, or Spike Spiegel in a profile picture was common. Unsurprisingly, back then, avatars tended to look rather similar. Since that […]

CloneX NFTs and the Secret to Nike and RTFKT’s Success

Comments are off for this post.
When Nike announced in late 2021 that it had acquired Web3 content developer RTFKT Studios, the news went right under the noses of the sneaker and apparel brand’s most die-hard fans. But the wider Web3 community took notice — particularly those tuned into the NFT space. With this new acquisition, Nike made its intent to carve a name for itself on the metaverse clear. The first step toward that lofty goal? NFTs. Today, thanks to the rapidly-growing CloneX NFT collection that launched in November 2021, it looks like Nike may reproduce its IRL cultural capital on Web3. In spite of […]

WATCH: These Artists Want You to Help Define Web3

Comments are off for this post.
What does a ‘decentralized’ internet even mean anyway? Within the realms of the NFT space — and Web3 as a whole — the interpretation of that ideal varies significantly. In the realm of blockchain gaming, titles like Decentraland are building towards it by providing scores of users with the tools to bring their dream game worlds to life. On the other hand, Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin sees Soulbound Tokens as the fundamental building blocks for a future decentralized society. For others, building towards decentralization isn’t such a grand affair. It’s all a matter of execution — and perspective. For the […]

Invisible Friends NFTs: A Guide to a Growing and Inclusive Collection

Comments are off for this post.
The NFT community has remained divided for months on the utility of art. But when a project truly centered on quality and community comes around, why force the issue? That’s exactly what the Invisible Friends NFT project is — a collection of art that could stand on its own merit. But what is it exactly? As its name implies, Invisible Friends is an animated PFP collection of invisible people. So does that mean the collection is a coy way of packaging a collection of backdrops as a PFP NFT project? Or a nightmare fuel attempt at realistically depicting a transparent […]
