Wixárika

  • Price: 0.055555 ETH

  • No. of tokens: 11,110





The Wixárika NFT collection pays tribute to the culture and art of the Wixaritari people, a pre-Hispanic shamanic tribe from Mexico.

Interestingly, these groups of individuals, otherwise known as the Huicholes, have managed to maintain their cultural heritage since pre-Hispanic times. They resisted conquest and outside incursion for 500 years, and the origin of their art dates back to ancient times when shamans used drawings to represent deities and sacred animals.

50 percent of the proceeds from the sales will be channeled towards managing and promoting a few social investments, including connecting artists of Wixárika descent to the global NFT market and building a digital community around the region’s culture.

The NFT collection has five levels of rarity, with the highest being the “Tatewari.” In Huichol folklore, the Tatewari is the god of fire, aka ‘grandfather fire.’

Fox Fam

  • Price: 0.05 ETH

  • No. of tokens: 10,000

Fox Fam features a collection of 10,000 hand-drawn fox NFTs generated from over 400 drawings. It was created by a group of artists under the Yum Yum creative studio umbrella. According to them:

“We are building a high-quality project that rewards our NFT holders. Animation, interactive content, and other goodies to come!”

Every NFT in the collection is algorithmically generated from a combination of 12 traits, including body, outfit, face and hat. From ghost NFTs to zombies, the traits of each species vary in rarity. Meanwhile, 95 foxes have been reserved for giveaways.

Token holders will have a say in the direction of the project since Fox Fam touts itself as a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). Members who hold 5+ NFTs will be able to vote on ideas concerning the project.

Funky Punks

  • Price: 0.6 SOL

  • No. of tokens: 7,777


According to the prestigious auction house Christie’s, “CryptoPunks are the alpha and omega of the CryptoArt movement.” The original CryptoPunks depicts just the head of 10,000 algorithmically generated humans, aliens, apes, and zombies.
Thanks to the Funk Family, these 24x24, 8-bit-style pixel art images will soon have bodies attached to their heads. The NFT collection has compiled a list of “whacky, yet classy clothing pieces” to go with the punks.

Surprisingly, only 7,777 NFTs will be minted in this collection. Owners can either choose an outfit that has been reserved for their punk or change the clothes to suit their taste. Meanwhile, each Funky Punk will function as a mint pass that can be used to deploy a metaverse-compatible Funky Punks VX.

MetaGeckos

  • Price: 0.1 ETH

  • No. of tokens: 10,000


MetaGeckos is the brainchild of Entities. The blockchain project doubles as a Launchpad for NFTs and as a DAO that allows users to create and deploy generative NFT collections without coding.

“We curate, vet, and provide the launchpad technology for the highest quality community-based generative art projects.”

Owning one of the MetaGeckos NFTs will grant you exclusive access to drops on the platform.

Museum

  • Price: 0.04 ETH

  • No. of tokens: 4,800


As the name suggests, Museum is a generative NFT project that focuses on the history of NFT art. The project attempts to capture special moments in the history of the NFT industry. As a result, every piece of NFT will “morph” into an identity that matches the calendar day of celebration and will be live for 48 hours. For instance, there is an NFT for the birth of Bitcoin on January 12. There is also an NFT for National Pizza Day on February 9.

“Just as humans wear their Sunday best for Christmas Eve, or join at the park for a spliff on 4/20, so will the NFTs change according to the landmark days celebrated in the crypto world […] The White Room of the Museum is refined artwork of 4801 Museum Punks. There are currently 36 landmark days which have been recognized and deployed in this project and more to come with the creational help of the community.”

10,000 hand-drawn Rebel Seals rose through the ashes of the conflict and are on a mission to educate the world about cryptocurrencies. The non-fungible tokens are reportedly created by top-tier artists from across the globe, drawing inspiration from the likes of J.R.R. Tolkein and the decentralized rebellion.
