+1 Project NFT

  • Price: 0.05 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 5,555

From CryptoPunks to CryptoKitties, the NFT space is now home to different kinds of designs and concepts, including a New York man selling his fart for $85 as a non-fungible token. 
The Plus One Project is a collection of 5,555 finger NFTs representing different actions. From a handshake to two fingers displaying the peace sign, a skating finger and even a finger firing a bullet, the team hopes to bring profits to anyone that is involved in the project.

+1 Project aims to introduce the “Level Up” system associated with gaming into the NFT space through its specialized smart contract. According to the team, NFTs automatically level up upon every transaction or sale.

There are plans to develop a Pokemon-style game in the future, as well as launch a crypto token (+1P), a marketplace, merch shop and decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).

Desperate ApeWives

  • Price: 0.08 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

If you are familiar with the American comedy-drama and mystery television series Desperate Housewives, then Desperate ApeWives (DAW) shouldn’t come as a surprise. The team behind the NFT collection was also quick to admit that its inspiration was gotten from the Desperate Housewives series. And quite admittedly, most NFT collections have focused on male characters.

DAW describes itself as a “startup, a venture, entrepreneurs with ambitious plans, not a project.”

Interestingly, some of the tokens in the Desperate Apewives collection are actually characters you are already familiar with, including the famous Mona Lisa, Wonder Woman, Queen Elizabeth, Wilma Flintstone, Marge Simpson and several others. The characters were generated from over 213 traits and token holders will in the future enjoy several members-only benefits.

JPEG Freaks Club — The Hero Experiment

  • Price: 0.06 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 8,191

Pixelated-style designs still appear to be in strong demand and JPEG Freaks Club claims to be a DAO community of “experimental and innovative NFT projects.” In addition to the pixel art NFTs, there are plans to integrate stake-to-earn utility.

Speaking of experiments, the first one began in October 2021 in the form of NFTs. There will be several other experiments between 2021 and 2022 to utilize the $JUICE token. JUICE will be used to power the JPEG Freaks Club economy. It will also be used to mint future experiments and for other utilities within the ecosystem.

“Experiments will include some of the successful applications of NFT’s and DeFi like staking to earn, breeding to earn, burning to mint, burning to breed, burning to GEN2, stacking/upgrading, multi staking combos, playing to earn, machine learning and AI… but all with unique freaky twists and mechanics.”

The minting process has been divided into 13 stages, with each stage having twice as little supply as the previous one. The amount of $JUICE earned per token increased gradually until it doubles in the last few stages. Meanwhile, the last token in the collection (#8191) to be minted will earn 256 $JUICE per day and will eventually become a hero with a 100 ETH prize.

“The last NFT — Token #8191 — is a JPEG Freak Hero. The owner becomes the hero of our community because a hero is somebody who voluntarily walks into the unknown, overcomes challenges and wins.”

Two Factions

  • Price: 0.08 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 8,888

Two Factions is a space dystopian-themed community NFTs with lore building. It follows the story of earth’s inability to support biological life and the quest to find a new home. As the name suggests, there are two factions in the journey to find a new home. Those who believe that artificial intelligence is the next step on the evolutionary ladder and those who think humanity should still rule.

The NFT collection will eventually evolve into a manga series.

Legacy Collection: Portraits of Stan Lee

  • Price: TBD (Auction)

  • No. of Tokens: 10

The Legacy Collection could go down in history as one of the rarest and limited NFT collections. It features 1/1 signed portraits of American comic book writer, editor, publisher and producer Stan Lee by Rob Prior.

Lee is in no doubt a legendary artist and is arguably the most iconic comic book creator of all time. He is the brain behind several Marvel superheroes, including Spider-Man, Iron Man and the X-Men.

The Legacy Collection uniquely memorializes Stan Lee in some of the most iconic Marvel covers. It captures the life and work of the artist, and will serve as a tribute to some of the heroes he forged. Each NFT in the collection will be sold with an accompanying physical artwork that was signed by Lee before he passed in 2018.

“Every great superhero has a great backstory. So too does this collection, the result of years of collaboration between artist Rob Prior and his friend Stan Lee. Rob met Stan in the 90s on the comic book convention scene, but it wasn’t until their mutual friend David Gold suggested that he paint Stan that the Legacy Collection took shape. Stan was a key part of the creative process, and despite busy schedules, they found time over the years to collide and talk about his favorite characters and vision for the future. The Legacy Collection: Portraits of Stan Lee uniquely captures the life and work of Stan, memorializing his likeness on some of the most iconic Marvel covers ever drawn. A tribute to his friend Stan and the icons he helped forge, this collection is one of Rob's proudest works. For the initial sale, each NFT will come with the accompanying physical artwork signed by Stan. His hope is that on blockchain, these pieces will live forever.”

CyberTrees

  • Price: 0.07 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 8,888

The effects of global warming are becoming more glaring and this NFT project hopes to contribute its quota towards environmentally-friendly projects. The characters in this collection appear to be a spin-off from Groot of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie.

CyberTrees is a collection of 8,888 cyber-humanoid trees. Their mission in the project’s metaverse is to “stop and prevent all destruction of the rainforest to ensure its existence for generations to come.”

As expected, a portion of the proceeds from the NFT sales will be channeled towards supporting some environmental charity projects. Meanwhile, NFT owners will have access to ETH giveaways, community game nights, community movie nights and free entry poker tournaments. There will also be exclusive merch drops.

MetaBoom by Fansi

  • Price: 0.05 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 5,000

MetaBoom describes itself as a “Web3.0 music distribution ecosystem designed for the future.” Imagine your CryptoPunk or Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT carrying a boombox.

“MetaBooms are chatty and feisty metaverse beings who are said to be the spirits of 80s' boomboxes wandering the world after walkman took over. They love great music, and they seek masters with the best music taste out there, yes, they’re looking at you.”

Owning one of the 5,000 MetaBooms in this collection automatically makes you a metaDJ. Owners will be able to earn tokens by curating playlists, while musicians earn tokens and income from the sales of their musical NFTs.

Sovereign Degens

  • Price: 0.08 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

Sovereign Degens touts itself as an on-chain adventure that will keep you busy through the crypto winter. It is a multi-season on-chain game adventure that is still in development. While season 1 is set to launch by January 2022, seasons 2 and 3 are still being developed.

Owning the genesis season 1 NFT is the key to participating in the Sovereign Degens adventure. Although the plan and storyline are still sketchy, the team notes that players will uncover plots and engage in community-driven story arcs over the coming weeks.

Galaxiators

  • Price: 0.05 – 0.09 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 1,665

Galaxiators is a vicious galactical gladiator-themed avatar NFT project. I’d have to admit, the characters look quite bad-ass.

Starting with a relatively small collection size of 1,665, the Galaxiators NFTs were generated with an AI program known as Nauplius VII. The program generates a description of a new planet and race that is later hand-drawn by an artist.

“Every Galaxiator we hunt, chain and put up for minting is a unique, inimitable ruthless combatant with his own algorithmically generated stats, colors, gears, and weapons.”

Owning one of these NFTs is akin to becoming a Lanista or Ludus, and being the trainer of an extra-galactic gladiators team. It will also become a ticket to participate in a future gladiatorial management game.

Metaverse Marauders

  • Price: 0.1 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 12,000

Pegged at 12,000 marauders, this NFT collection features professionals that are seeking items that can be sold at the Sandaga Central Market. The characters in this collection are quite unique as there is no particular flow in their design. Each attribute is redesigned for every species and gender in the collection.

As for its overall roadmap, the team behind the Metaverse Marauders project is hoping that its ecosystem will become an “OpenSea killer.” It will be launching its NFT MarketPlace Sandaga approximately six weeks after the project goes live. There are also plans to launch an NFT studio that will collaborate with celebrities and other brands.

SIPHER: Sipherian Flash

  • Price: TBC

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

Sipherian Flash is a collection of 10,000 Neko-themed NFTs with 3D in-game characters. According to the team, “Sipher is an ambitious casual fighting and exploration game with an end-game goal of creating an open-world social experience, built on the Ethereum blockchain.”

Players will be fighting for land and dominance in the gaming world. They will be harvesting resources and using them to craft or fuse. They can also obtain rare items that will form a part of their legacy.

Genesis NFT holders will be able to access the world of Sipheria as a comic release, enjoy exclusive limited-edition spaceship parts, and have early access to the game.

Rebel Rabbits

  • Price: 0.08283 ETH

  • No. of Tokens: 9,402

Most people would agree that there is a divide between the rich and the poor. The rich keep getting richer while the poor get poorer. Rebel Rabbits intends to challenge the status quo.

Rebel Rabbits is a community of early adopters of the decentralized revolution.

“A Rebel Rabbit transcends the old world of financial manipulation in favor of a decentralized digital store of value, wherein power is taken from the few and given to the many.”

The ecosystem will include merch, treasure hunts, comics and a secret underground society.

Poly Droids

  • Price: 30 MATIC

  • No. of Tokens: 10,000

Poly Droids is a pixel art community-based PFP project. It is a collection of 10K Droid NFTs on the Polygon blockchain. It features a collection of programmatically generated NFT robots with hundreds of different parts.

Although the road map of the project is still sketchy, Poly Droids is tilting towards NFT gaming.
