CoinMarketCap takes a look at some upcoming NFTs dropping this week that collectors can mint, from more Halloween-themed NFTs to quantum computer-generated particles of the metaverse.
With the non-fungible token
(NFT) market booming and investors seriously searching for the next potential CryptoPunks, creators have continued to release new collections. Here’s a rundown of some of the hottest upcoming NFTs minting this week to keep an eye on.
Tuesday, Oct. 19
Price: 0.05 ETH
No. of Tokens: 1,555
is a collection of 1,555 randomly-generated ghost NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. Each character in the collection is completely unique and derives its traits from over 60 different features, including hats, faces, body parts and outfits.
According to the project’s team, there are plans to release more NFTs in the future as the ecosystem evolves. However, Series 1 NFT holders will have a say in the future trajectory of the project while enjoying other benefits in the form of rewards.
The collection initially announced a launch of 5,555 generative NFTs, but reduced the supply to ensure value and profitability for their community. Overall, the NFT collection has a Halloween feel to it as the characters appear to be playing dress up.

Price: 0.088 ETH
No. of Tokens: 8,888
The Godspeed Metaverse
NFT collection looks like something that came out of a Japanese anime. It follows the story of an 18-year old boy, named Turbo, who yearns to explore other planets like his father.
The theme of the collection draws heavily on pop culture, classic comics, streetwear fashion, and mangas. There are 8,888 characters spread across five different categories of rarity – common, uncommon, rare, mythical, and legendary.
Holding the Godspeed Metaverse NFT enables access to certain members-only benefits, including community voting rights and “access to 88 dine n bar and exclusive store for holders.”
Meanwhile, there is the possibility that the NFT project will evolve into an animation series or a play-to-earn arcade game in the future.
Price: 0.07 ETH
No. of Tokens: 7,777
Away from the cliché character-style designs that are beginning to flood the NFT market, The Floor
is bringing a fresh concept to the space. This NFT collection is made up of 7,777 hand-drawn, caricature houses.
“THE FLOOR project is our attempt to make the world a little better for those who are in need, while still having all the NFT fun!”
Crafted by DAHR, The Floor touts itself as the “first-ever NFT condominium community.” The artworks in the collection were generated from more than 150 attributes.

Price: 0.04 ETH
No. of Tokens: 6,000
Virtually anything or character can be converted into an NFT. And as the name of this collection implies, Pure Pineapple
is a series of 6,000 handcrafted pineapple-looking NFTs. From a hipster pineapple to a surfing pineapple, scholarly pineapple, and even a clownish character, the NFTs were generated from various attributes including background, pineapple base, eyes, hats, hair, mouth, chains and many other accessories. Overall, they were created from more than 130 attributes.
Token holders will be able to participate in community decisions and giveaways.
It is worth mentioning that the primary utility of the project is charity and giveaways. And speaking of giveaways, the team will be hosting a giveaway of a Tesla Model 3 or equivalent in fiat/crypto.
Saturday, Oct. 23
Price: 0.05 ETH
No. of Tokens: 15,000
claims to be the first hybrid NFT collection. Hybrid in the sense that the artwork combines physical craftsmanship with computer-code generation. The NFTs are drawn from about 30 animals.
“Much more than a code generated collection, is one in which every trait is physically worked by an expert artist with traditional methods like sculpting, paper machie techniques and painting by hand, all this work is then digitized and turned into unique NFTs for you to collect.”
Sunday, Oct. 24
Price: 0.06 ETH
No. of Tokens: 9,998
Celebrities like Snoop Dogg
are not the only ones jumping on the NFT trend. Engineers have also come aboard and are looking to use quantum computing to generate NFTs.
The Photon Project
is the brainchild of a team of engineering nerds. It features a collection of 9,998 metaverse particles NFTs generated using a quantum computer.
“Along with the Particle-specific metadata that determines each particle's properties in the metaverse, each NFT contains a unique quantum determined numerical value inserted into the metadata for use by developers in future applications.”
The NFTs are a starting point in the project’s development. From metaverse particles, the team will proceed to construct molecules and then items that will form a framework for a gaming ecosystem.
Price: 1.5 SOL
No. of Tokens: 9,999
is a play-to-earn game on the Solana blockchain. The collection features 9,999 first generation NFT dragon characters. Similar to other play-to-earn games like Axie Infinity
, owners will be able to breed their Solmon tokens with others to create new characters with entirely different traits.
In phase 3 of the project’s development, NFT holders will be able to battle other players.
