Djeenies

  • Price: 0.07 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 7,777

Genies are generally known for granting wishes in Arabian folklore, and this NFT collection is all about granting wishes. With a collection of 7,777 djins, the Djeenies is an NFT series based on a genesis collection that started in early 2021.

According to the team, the art project is focused on utility and priority has been given to making each djin in the collection unique. The NFTs derive their features from more than 200 traits. However, Djeenies has been divided into 4 primary categories, each having a plethora of possible combinations and traits. The categories are “Civilian,” “Medieval,” “Cyberpunk” and “Celestial.”

Speaking of granting wishes, each Djeenies functions as a ticket to a raffle where random holders will win other NFTs. There are also three so-called “great wishes” that members of the community stand to receive for holding an NFT. First is the potential to win a Baby CyberKongz, CryptoToadz, MAYC, or Cool Cats NFT, valued at 10 ETH. The second wish is valued at 40 ETH and might be a piece from the Bored Ape Yacht Club. Meanwhile, the final wish has an estimated value of 100 ETH and is expected to be a CryptoPunk.

It is worth mentioning that the items in the wish box are only examples of what token holders can win. The community will have to vote on which NFTs should be gifted.

In the future, Djeenies will collaborate with other NFT designers and also create a metaverse Djeenee character that can be used in Sandbox and Somnium Space VR.

GalaXY Kats

  • Price: 0.08 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

In 2021, the crypto gaming industry had market revenue of $321 million, with about 41.9 million gamers owning crypto. As the industry continues to grow, more contenders are joining the scene, particularly in the NFT and play-to-earn sector.
GalaXY Kats is a blockchain game and its 10,000 meerkat NFTs represent a player’s avatar and function as a ticket to play the game. Furthermore, holders can participate in exclusive content airdrop and earn token rewards.

The backstory behind the gameplay follows the typical storyline of humanity being destroyed and needing a savior. In this case, meerkats are the savior.

“The GalaXY Kats fostered the idea of "regenerating mankind" at the beginning when they inherited the human consciousness. However, except for a few ancestor meerkats, others have gradually forgotten humanity. One day, there will be born a meerkat that will rekindle this vision, this mission, this fate!”

Drawn from 6 nations and possessing over 195 traits, each meerkat is born with different equipment that empowers its holder.

Crypto Boomers NFT

  • Price: 0.069 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

Cryptocurrency adoption has been primarily fueled by the younger generation. However, older folks are beginning to come on board after years of predicting the imminent doom of the industry.

This NFT project has a simple mission and that is “to help the so-called ‘Boomers’ understand the crazy world of crypto and NFTs.” Baby boomers are those born between 1946 to 1964.

The 10,000 NFTs in the Crypto Boomers have been hand-picked by other boomers from over 750,000 options.

As for the overall utility of the project, an official YouTube channel will be launched at a later date offering free educational series lessons.

“We aim to create the biggest boomer community to help older people understand the world of crypto and nft! We are going to create an exclusive Youtube series using Crypto Boomers characters that will explain different aspects of this amazing crypto world in a way that is “Boomers Friendly”, making the NFT and Crypto space more and more viral […] We will develop our own APP and every NFT holder will gain access to amazing features, giveaways, airdrops, and even the opportunity to give voice in the decisions of the project!”

Sovereign Degens

  • Price: 0.08 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

While we may never see a crypto winter as profound as that of 2018, Sovereign Degens is a multi-season on-chain game adventure that promises to keep you busy through the crypto winter. The first season of the game is expected to be released in January 2022.

Owning one of the 10,000 NFTs is the key to participating in the Sovereign Degens game. Although the storyline is still in development, players will get to uncover plots and engage in community-driven story arcs.

Thieves Gang

  • Price: 0.03 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

Play-to-earn is currently one of the hottest topics in the crypto space and Thieves Gang is an NFT gaming project with play-to-earn mechanics. 10,000 pixel thieves NFTs will compete amongst themselves to find out who is the best.

The main concept of the game is to steal as much in-game currency from other players as you can and protect your funds from other thieves. Having one or more items from the collection is the ticket to playing the game.

PixTapes

  • Price: Free

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

If you don’t have a few hundreds or thousands of dollars to spend on an NFT then this is probably your chance to grab one for free.

You may be lucky to mint 1 of 10,000 randomly-generated NFTs from the PixTapes collection. The series captures the style of the 80s and early 90s. The project touts itself as “the first NFT collection created to save music” and it features 10,000 vintage tapes of the best songs of all time.

Saturday, Nov. 6

Mad Ape Tournament

  • Price: 0.077 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

You’d have to agree that most recent NFT collections promise investors financial gains. Surprisingly, the team behind the Mad Ape Tournament is not making any promises. According to them, “NFTs were created as art pieces intended for people to enjoy by collecting (not as a financial instrument).”

The primary utility of the NFTs is to grant holders exclusive access to a competitive RPG game where a limited number of players contend to dethrone the Mad Ape King. Only holders of the Mad Ape Tournament NFTs can participate in the gameplay.

“The collection consists of 10,000 unique mad ape NFTs inspired by games, anime, meme, pop culture and obviously the other top monkey-based collections […] The tournament will be a PvE ladder where players climb up by beating an NPC boss at each step. Final boss is the Mad Ape King. First person to beat the Mad Ape king will be the winner of the tournament and will become the new Mad Ape King.”

It is worth mentioning that the game is still in a conceptual stage and the team needs the funds from the sales to push its development.

Quest Chests by RippleDrops

  • Price: 0.05 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 10,946

If you are particularly intrigued by riddles and solving them, then this NFT collection might be just for you. RippleDrops is a collection of 10,946 chest NFTs used to play games and solve riddles. It features mini gameplay where holders can participate in regular main quests.

The top treasure hunters in these main quests will be rewarded with NFTs from the most wanted collections on current secondary markets, including BAYC, Art Blocks Curated, CyberKongz, and Loot.

Thorguards

  • Price: 0.09 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 9,999

ThorGuards is a Viking-themed NFT series. The collection of 9,999 NFT characters were inspired by THORChain, Norse mythology, and an element of cyberpunk aesthetics.

“Hundreds of 3D elements were meticulously handcrafted for the collection - from base bodies, to armor, to headgear, hair, and more - then run through a custom-built character generator...”

The upcoming NFT sales is only a first step in the development of the ecosystem. In 2022, there will be a new collection airdrop, the launch of a mobile app, ThorGuards merch, and physical collectibles. Further down the road, there will be metaverse integrations, games and animated shorts, as well as a ThorGuards DAO.
