Although NFT floor prices continue to plummet in tandem with the ongoing crypto winter, there are recent developments that indicate signs of life.
Meta launched NFT integrations of its own, starting with an Instagram rollout in 100 countries in August and followed up with a Facebook expansion. Also, two of the world’s biggest rap stars, Eminem and Snoop Dogg have done a lot to increase mainstream NFT exposure in recent months by using their performance at the MTV Video Music Awards to show their support for the technology.
This level of exposure is now having a culminating effect on the market in a way that has seemingly defied the odds and recreated a buying frenzy unseen in the NFT market for months.
For instance, DigiDaigaku, a free mint project that many NFT enthusiasts overlooked when it launched on August 10, soared to a floor price of 17 ETH in the early days of September, seemingly from nowhere.
Those who latched on to DigiDaigaku’s potential early were able to see very good returns on their investments. In fact, holders that bought the work for 0.5ETH got a 3,330% increase if they managed to sell at the top price.
The fact that a hitherto unknown project like DigiDaigaku could enter the market and outshine other NFT mainstays signals hope in a highly speculative market.
The NFT market may have been dormant over the past few months. But, to anyone watching closely enough, it’s obvious that the space is far from dead. That said, here are three NFT collections you should consider minting in September.
1. The Elementals
The Elementals is a collection of 999 NFTs on the Solana blockchain. The collection is launching on September 13, at 7 pm and the hype around it has already been pretty decent.
The company has two goals in mind: building profitable businesses to fund and grow the project. The second is to build products that can accelerate the Solana ecosystem and fuel mass adoption.
All businesses built by The Elementals Project will share revenue with the holders.
Another selling point of The Elementals is the blend of culture and tech in its brand perception. This brings the two most important factors for an NFT collection: branding and utility.
The mint price is 1.5 Sol and the launchpad is FellowshipDAO, it should be a good bet!
POSers is an Ethereum-based NFT collection founded by @cryptoSciart. The 5000 digital collectables are the first on-chain PFP collection launched since the transition from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-stake started on the Ethereum Network.
The mint date has not been announced but all indications point to the fact that it is coming up sometime this month. The mint price is 0.05ETH and it is going to use the ERC-721A contract. This will optimise the mint process, requiring minimal gas to mint.
The atmosphere for this piece on discord and Twitter has been positive. It is a collection you can bet on.
3. Killjoy Monsters
The Killjoy Monsters is an Ethereum-based NFT collection launching on September 13. One of the perks of the project is it has a clear-cut roadmap. When the mint is done, owners of the Killjoy Monsters collection will have the opportunity to join exclusive virtual events.
Also, each Monster NFT will produce up to 10 $KILLJOY tokens every day. The $KILLJOY token will be launched when 100% of the Killjoy Monsters are minted. With the $KILLJOY token, users will be able to stake, buy merch at the platform shop, and upgrade their Monster NFT.
The beauty of the project is that it is a free mint, which means that you have virtually nothing to lose. Even if the floor does not rise after the mint, you would only lose a paltry sum of a gas fee.
