Monster Shelter NFTs

  • Price: 0.05 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 5,555

Cute little monsters have filled the streets of cities all over the world and they need a place to call home. Adopting any of these 5,555 animated monsters will make you a proud member of the Monster Shelter organization.

The collection features a variety of monster NFTs, each having up to 10 traits, including a unique color palette, individual presence and character.

In the long run, NFT holders will be able to participate in a multiplayer Tamagochi-inspired game on Discord where they can take care, develop and socialize with their new characters. There are also plans to launch a merchandise store for members and their monsters, as well as deploy a breeding system.

Lost Lynx Society NFTs

  • Price: 0.5 SOL

  • No. of Tokens: 3,000

If providing shelter to monsters is not your thing then restoring balance to the once peaceful land of Lynxenara might interest you. Following an unintentional mishap caused by a Lynx practicing dark arts, 3,000 Lynxes were scattered across multiple dimensions and timelines. The only way to restore balance is to collect all 3,000 NFTs.

The characters in this collection reference several popular movie stars, inventors and other personalities, including Iron Man, Thor, Jack Sparrow, Albert Einstein, Superman and Super Mario.

Commenting on the driving force behind the project, the team said:

“After learning about Solana core technology and how it solves the crypto scaling issues, we wanted to become one of the early adopters/contributors to the NFT scene. We were fortunate to meet a few devs in the Solana ecosystem, and have decided to help contribute to the ecosystem, we started by sharing a dockerized Metaplex flow. We also plan on using mint sales to fund projects on the Solana ecosystem.”

Speaking of contributing to the NFT space, the Lost Lynx Society will be releasing all the code used for the drop after launch. By automating Metaplex, other NFT projects will be able to launch their own projects with minimal technical knowledge.

Sad Pixels NFTs

  • Price: 0.4 SOL

  • No. of Tokens: 6,666

This NFT series is undoubtedly an odd one in the pack. Sad Pixel is a collection of 6,666 largely suicidal characters that are trying to pass a simple message — “tech has ruined our mental health.”

You will be left disappointed if you are expecting a roadmap or intriguing future plan from this project. The team is “too sad to make a roadmap” and they don’t care if you buy the art or not.

“Our roadmap is that there is no roadmap. The whole point of this project is to show how fucked up the internet and social media are. The art is a reflection of how tech has ruined our mental health. Just buy the art if you're numb like us. Or don't. We don't care.” 

Solar Heroes NFTs

  • Price: 0.5 SOL

  • No. of Tokens: 5,555

NFT gaming has grown to become such a hot topic in 2021. With major players like Ubisoft and Google entering the space, the next few years are set to be revolutionary.
That being said, Solar Heroes is a play-to-earn MMORPG game based on NFTs, staking, and farming. The game was built with an in-house gaming framework on Unity. There are two playable character classes that allow users to obtain in-game NFTs via events and rare monster drops.

“The NFTs in Solar Heroes are not like the typical "collectible card" NFTs so common in crypto today. Instead, they are usable and functional NFTs that can be inserted into the Solar Game Framework and become special in-game items.”

One of the game’s key elements is a virtual marketplace, where players can trade their heroes and other in-game products like weapons, necklaces and badges.

The game is expected to launch between March and April 2022.

Lucid Dream NFTs

  • Price: 0.9 SOL

  • No. of Tokens: 888

Lucid Dream is a French project targeting art lovers. It is the brainchild of a team of two friends living in Paris. While one is working in an art gallery and doing digital art, the other is a blockchain developer. Their goal is to “develop digital art and show the power of NFT to everybody.”

Using generative art, the duo came up with a collection of 888 rather abstract art pieces.

In addition to owning an NFT from the collection, holders stand the chance to win 1 of 100 physical paintings of their NFTs, as well as 3 paintings worth $2,000.

As for its roadmap, NFT holders will be able to join a DAO on Discord where they will be taught how to create their own generative art.

Verse of Death NFTs

  • Price: 0.5 SOL

  • No. of Tokens: 2,000

Verse of Death is a horror piece of art & ticket to the Death DAO. Although the title of the scariest NFT is up for debate, this series of 2,222 tokens is only “pretending to be the scariest NFT.”

“Verse of Death is a unique project on the Solana blockchain. We will grant our buyers horror pieces of art with their own SCARITY rating. Through innovative features like SOuL FEE SYSTEM and marketing activities (collaborations, giveaways, crematorium) we will increase Deaths’ popularity.”

Deaths are ranked by their “scarity,” particularly from six primary attributes, including weapons, jewelry, raincoat, accessory, background and mask. 

Ernest in Disguise NFTs

  • Price: 3 SOL

  • No. of Tokens: 6,000

Ernest in Disguise follows the story of a friendly alien known as Ernest that is trying to blend in on earth. As a result, the creators have developed 6,000 spooky, cool, playful, and wicked 3D NFT disguises to help blend in.

“Ernest the alien is from the Cryzal galaxy. He never really fit in with his people…always venturing forth away from his homeland, looking for something more in his dismal existence.”

At 75% mint, an Ernest comic will be created, and at 100%, 100 lucky winners will stand a chance to win 100 SOL. 1 NFT is equivalent to 1 raffle ticket. Meanwhile, owners of two or more NFTs will be able to join an exclusive DAO.

Painture Gallery

  • Price: 0.99 SOL

  • No. of Tokens: 780

Painture Gallery is a collection of 780 unique NFTs composed of a mixture of sculptures, paintings and frames. It features some of the most valuable paintings and sculptures in history.

As for the utility of the project, a 3D virtual gallery will be developed to showcase both the burnt Paintures, and those the holders want to show in their own gallery. Later on in the project, generation 1 NFT holders will be airdropped generation 2 Painture Gallery.

It is also worth mentioning that “the Painture Game” will be released 48 hours after secondary trading becomes available. The game is exclusive to only NFT holders.

The Painture Game is based on the popular Korean series “Squid Game.” Although the dynamics of the game are still sketchy, the goal is to create a reduced community of VIP artists.

The Wild Ape Gang

  • Price: 0.08 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

The Wild Ape Gang is an NFT series of 10,000 generative wild apes with hundreds of traits. While some of the characters depict an Egyptian pharaoh, others represent red Indians, a military ape, and of course, an ape samurai. In general, each artwork is original and has its own color palette and creation.

Beyond being a PFP project, The Wild Ape Gang is also looking to spread its tentacles into the metaverse.

“With #THEWILDAPEGANG, we don’t want to limit ourselves to being just a PFP (Photo for Profile) project. We are striving to provide real utility for our NFTs in the Metaverse. By combining the Metaverse and the real world, all The Wild Ape Gang NFT holders will tremendously benefit from exclusive drops. These consist of customized add-ons to their beloved apes and even possibly transitioning it towards a lifestyle brand with physical products such as collectibles. The possibilities are endless!”

Furthermore, there are plans to enable breeding functionality as the project progresses. Owners of two or more wild apes will be able to interbreed and produce new generations of NFTs.

Goofy Dracula NFTs

  • Price: 0.5 – 0.9 SOL

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

Vampires are generally known to be scary and horror creatures. However, count Dracula appears to have lost his touch. The Goofy Dracula series is a collection of 10,000 funny-looking vampires.

“Goofy Dracula is a unique, hand-drawn, NFT collection centered around a goofier, more family-friendly, version of Dracula!”

According to the team behind the project, more than half of the proceeds from the sales, as well as royalties after the launch, will be channeled to supporting children in Transylvania who do not have the means to access good healthcare and education.

It is also hard to ignore the massive giveaway that has been attached to the project. NFT holders will have a chance to win a brand-new Lamborghini Urus, in addition to other very rare collection items that would be randomly airdropped to selected holders. AT 100% mint, a lucky holder will win 1000 SOL.

“All holders with at least 2 Goofy Dracula NFT’s will receive a free NFT from the next collection that will represent the evolution of Count Dracula and his adventures with other monsters.”

Meanwhile, there are plans to release the $BAT token and subsequent collections after launch.

House of Warlords NFTs

  • Price: 0.0694 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 8,888

House of Warlords (HOWLS) claims to be building the “next generation of NFT PFP with insane tattoo-inspired art and hardcore tech.” The series features a collection of 8,888 NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain.

Like most new NFT projects, the game is still in development, with no timeline on when it will be released. However, there are a few interesting aspects of the project worth mentioning. First, HOWLS has what is called the “Great Seppuku Event.”

This is a monthly deflationary event where holders are required to burn one of their warlords. In doing so, they will be rewarded with 1000 SOUL tokens and a 50 percent chance to claim a new NFT with an even more limited supply.

Secondly, one random HOWL holder will win a 2-week all-expense paid trip for 2 to Japan.

Project GAIA Cyborgs NFTs

  • Price: 0.0234 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 8,765

Project GAIA is a cyborg-themed avatar NFT collection. 8,765 unique cyborgs are on a mission to rebuild the earth. Each character has been designed to look unique, with no two cyborgs having the same appearance.

Ultimately the project will evolve into a play-to-earn game.

“The last fourth phase indicates the arrival of the Play-to-Earn game based on the Project GAIA lore and art. Use your Structures to beat levels and earn GAIA Tokens or beat your opponents and win what's theirs.”

Sol Santas Christmas Escape

  • Price: 1 SOL

  • No. of Tokens: 5,555

You’ve probably seen movies where Santa begins to lose his powers and the magic of Christmas because people stopped believing. The lore of this NFT is not too far from these storylines.

Santa and his mates escaped from Lapland because people became too busy with their work and began ignoring them. Sol Santas is all about restoring the spirit of Christmas. Needless to say, Christmas is just around the corner.

One intriguing aspect of this project is its Santa buyback and charity program. A 5 percent royalty fee is taken from all resales and channeled towards buying back the Santa NFTs, making Sol Santas the first deflationary buyback NFT.
