Ahoy and GM, weary traveler.
Traversing the vast expanse of OpenSea, the world’s largest NFT marketplace, has become a bit daunting, hasn’t it? But fear not. Fortunately, I’ve been venturing far and wide with the simple goal of unearthing the most innovative and awe-inspiring NFT projects out there..
In this weekly column, I’ll share all sorts of discoveries with you — big, small, new, and old. So take a moment to marvel at what I’ve found whilst Sailing the OpenSea…
Dogg On It is Snoop Dogg‘s first-ever NFT mixtape, released via OpenSea. The collection is comprised of 24 audiovisual NFTs and features instrumentals, accapellas, full songs, and more.
After purchasing Death Row Records at the beginning of February, Snoop Dogg’s first act as the new owner of the influential brand was to turn it into an NFT record label. Only a few weeks later, Snoop seems to have already achieved that goal with the release of the Dogg On It NFT mixtape. The current floor for the collection is 0.034 ETH.
Click, created by Ivan Dianov, is one of the latest collections minted on the coveted Art Blocks platform. Featuring 1,024 generative NFTs, this collection feels like a whimsical callback to childhood toys and creativity.
Dianov says he was inspired by Dmitri Cherniak’s Ringers and endeavored to create unique sculptures made of blocks. Click was still minting via the Art Blocks platform as of March 4, and the current OpenSea floor has reached 0.3 ETH.
At the beginning of March, AMC’s The Walking Dead became immortalized on the blockchain. This genesis collection inspired by and created for the popular network show features 4,997 zombie-themed access passes.
In collaboration with crypto-artist Orange Comet, AMC launched this collection as a way to grant NFT enthusiasts early access to all subsequent Walking Dead drops. Currently, the collection floor has settled around 0.329 ETH.
Dooggies is a pixel-art PFP project created by an anonymous 16-year-old programmer. The collection features 10,000 randomly-generated NFTs with a variety of unique traits.
Because Dooggies was released a short time before the ever-popular Bored Ape Yacht Club, the collection has been said to have historic value. Although the project remained relatively inactive until recently, many within the NFT community have now taken an interest in the collection. After a month of robust trading, the Dooggies floor has currently at 0.075.ETH.
3Landers is a new PFP project created by pseudonymous artists/developers 3LandBoy and Stubby. The collection is comprised of 10,000 NFTs that the project’s founders say are “made up out of a unique combination of traits and underlying DNAs.”
3Landers is one of the latest projects to sell out as part of the new wave of PFP projects cropping up in 2022. The collection is billed as one that is centered around community, adventure, and collaboration and seems to have become one of the new NFT community favorites. As such, the current 3Landers floor has reached 1.59 ETH.
Sared Bbz is a small-batch NFT project created by artists Frankie Fünke. The collection hosts a total of 99 hand-drawn, multicolored NFT heads that are said to be the offspring of nervous energy and self-doubt.
The collection is billed by its creators as being about “owning our big and little feelings, embracing those bits of ourselves we might not be super proud of or comfortable with,” and is the first collection launched by growing NFT curator plutøverse. The current Scared Bbz floor is 0.06 ETH.
Killer GF is one of the newer anime-inspired PFP projects that has cropped up in 2022. The collection features 7,762 generative NFTs developed by former Riot Games artist Zeronis.
The lore behind the project follows Cerise, a “killer GF assassin” whose ability to reform her appearance into any disguises malfunctions and causes the breakage of dimensions. Killer GF was developed in part by the team behind uwucrew and has reached a floor of 0.34 ETH.
