Let’s face it: The NFT space moves really fast. Considering how quickly things can change in the metaverse, a week in NFTs might as well be a month IRL.
Don’t get us wrong — the merrier, the more people onboarded into the space. But because of the constant influx of great art and ideas, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the news, launches, and general happenings.
Well, you can put the days of endless Twitter and Discord scrolling behind you as we pull together a weekly list of upcoming NFT drops you don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look out for this week.
The Boys of Summer by Mitchell F. Chan
Who: Mitchell F. Chan
What: Digital game artwork within a generative PFP sports collection of 999 baseball characters that probe contemporary obsession with quantifying self and challenges our understanding of success.
When: August 16 at 1:30 p.m. ET, with a mint price of 0.12 ETH.
Why: The Boys of Summer by Mitchell F. Chan explores three converging currents of contemporary culture – data in crypto, baseball, and the quantification of self through numbers. By creating PFPs, Chan provides an incisive commentary on how we attribute worth to digital art in today’s marketplaces. Baseball’s inherent statistical nature reflects the game’s broader theme of alignment and quantification.
Who: ZTX, whose parent company is Zepeto.
What: Genesis Mint comprising 4,000 District Home NFTs usable inside the ZTX platform.
When: Presale (August 8-25) offering up to 2 mints per wallet; OpenSea Mint (August 30)
Where: Presale hosted on Helio, where buyers receive the NFT on Arbitrum after OpenSea public mint concludes. Price is TBD.
Why: The Genesis Mint by ZTX will kick off the development of the ZTX NFT ecosystem, allowing early supporters to collect one of the first-ever ZTX NFTs – District Homes. These in-game assets represent a collector’s actual home inside the ZTX metaverse platform.
DEyes Legends by Coldie
What: Mixed-reality art that comprises 523 DEyes sculptures trait-matched to the OG 2021 AsyncArt DEyes Collection.
When: August 9 at 2:00pm ET (public mint)
