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 more people onboarded into the space, the merrier. 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 definitely don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look out for this week.
Remembrance of Korean Boyhood
Who: Chase Tongyull
What: 320 unique NFTs
When: August 8 at 11:00 a.m. ET
Why: Remembrance of Korean Boyhood by Chae Tongyull is a collection of 320 unique NFTs that are based on the reflections of a young boy growing up in Post-War Korea. Having left his country for the US in the 1970s, this collection is a mediation on Tongyull’s own journey through life. Each individual NFT’s background will change over time, representing a tapestry of the “self” in constant, colorful motion. Pre-sale for eligible holders
DeGods Season III
What: An art refresh. When DeGods comes out with Season III, holders will own IP for four art iterations. There will be roughly 40k art pieces in a 10k collection, along with some surprises.
When: August 9
Why: An upgrade in the existing art. Frank DeGods has said that “DeGods Season III will have the same traits as the current DeGods in a reimagined style/aesthetic. The reason for most post-reveal dips is when people reveal commons and floor them. Season III is not random. It’s also non-dilutive.” Frank also added in a podcast with Marc Colcer that one of the goals for season III is to “rebrand the brand, gain attention, and re-evaluation in a new light.”
Beyond the faces
What: Limited drop
When: August 8 (pre-sale) at 9:45pm EST and August 9 (public sale)
Why: Beyond the faces by artist and painter @maryart.eth is a digital portrait collection that depicts people’s faces and looks. We don’t know what’s going on in their minds, but we can see hope drawn in their eyes.
Who: Aykut Aydogdu
What: 4,444 NFT collection
When: August 10 at 3:00 p.m. ET (WL allocations begin at 2:00 p.m. CT)
Why: LollyLoop by Aykut Aydogdu depicts the life of an artwork and the hurdles it faces, impeding even the necessities of the age. Despite diverse paths and experiences, we inevitably rebuild in a continuous loop. The Collection allows changes, randomness, willpower, and countless alternatives from Aydogdu’s imagination as it continues to explore new cycles in the digital world.
AIPEPs by Cre8ors
What: 8,888 Artificially Intelligent Protocol-Enabled Pictures (AiPEPs)
When: August 10 at 8:00 a.m. ET
