Let’s face it: The NFT space moves really fast. Considering how quickly things can change in the metaverse, a week in NFTs might as well be a month IRL.
Don’t get us wrong — the more people onboarded into the space, the merrier. But because of the constant influx of great art and ideas, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the news, launches, and general happenings.
Well, you can put the days of endless Twitter and Discord scrolling behind you, as we put together a weekly list of upcoming NFT drops you definitely don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look out for this week.
Badam Bomb Squad
What: 5,000 PFP NFT expansion
When: November 21 @ 12:00 p.m. ET
Why: The Hundreds is expanding its Adam Bomb Squad Web3 universe with a spin-off NFT collection that celebrates Badam Bomb, the unsung anti-hero of the Adam Bomb lore. The Badam Bomb Squad is a generative collection of 5,000 unique tokens that represent the most unique parts of the infamous Bomb’s personality and backstory.
What: a 199-edition generative art NFT
When: November 21 @ 1:00 p.m. ET
Where: art blocks
Why: The seeds for Seedlings were planted all the way back in 2019, when VES3L made their first steps into the world of generative art. It was a simple concept: a long-form study of fractal trees and the endless variations that could emerge as a result. The idea stemmed from a deep appreciation for “green spaces” that took root after years of living in the concrete jungle that is New York City. With years of experience in generative art under their belt, VES3L is now able to do this idea justice. As each fractal tree blooms in Seedlings, flowers and abstractions for the sun and moon now also bloom forth from the algorithm. In line with the collection’s theme, 25 percent of all proceeds above the resting price from the sale will go toward funding organizations that “support the preservation and development of green spaces in urban areas.”
What: 4,207 PFP NFTs
When: November 21 @ 6:00 p.m. ET
Why: Cel Mates is the first large-scale project to come from French illustrator and video director McBess. Created in his unique black and white, vintage cartoon-esque style, Cel Mates features a variety of inmate-themed NFTs, which each double as a membership pass to the growing project community.
What: A music NFT
When: November 23 @ 3:00 p.m. ET
Why: Written in the afterglow of one of his most memorable festival experiences at Red Rocks, DNMO’s latest work is shaping up to be yet another piece of genre-bending, bombastic EDM. For EDM fans looking to bottle up that post-festival high, DNMO’s latest music NFT on sound is sure to be a compelling pickup during this week, which is chock-full of great NFT drops.
