The metaverse is undoubtedly one of the hottest trends throughout the cryptocurrency industry and beyond.
It has also become a commonly-discussed topic within the traditional fintech world, especially after Facebook rebranded its company name to Meta in a bid to target metaverse developments.
In any case, all of the above also led to increasing adoption of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), as if they weren’t booming enough. The NFT space is currently the most quickly developing space in the field of cryptocurrencies, and there are plenty of projects to exemplify that.
An upcoming NFT drop that’s gaining attention is IggyBoy.
What is IggyBoy NFT?
IggyBoy is an NFT collection of 10,000 high-quality 3D characters that are hand-made and are set to launch on February 20th – that’s the date for the mint. The pre-sale price is set at 0.055 ETH, whereas the public sale price is 0.088 ETH.
The developer of the project is the team behind 1ATH.Studio and they aim to deliver something that’s truly one-of-a-kind. Every single NFT represents a piece of digital art that’s manually created by the 3D designers of the team. It’s interesting to note that, unlike many other projects, the team behind IggyBoy is well-known and doxxed – it’s not anonymous.
In addition, the team will also issue 376 distinct animated non-fungible tokens that are set to be given away in promotions, to influencers, and to various promoters. The team doesn’t use any types of auto-generation tools, which is also supposedly increasing the value of the IggyBoy collectibles, which are entirely handcrafted.
The NFTs are composed of 630 different traits ranging from skins, accessories, ears, eyes, mouth, hands, legs, animation, horns, and backgrounds. These will be forming the rarity of the tokens.
Part of an Upcoming Metaverse
Besides being digital collectibles the IggyBoy NFT collectibles will also be a part of an upcoming metaverse effort, also known as the vUniversum where they will be performing as main characters.
Holders of IggyBoy NFTs will be able to enjoy certain privileges when establishing the decentralized community of the metaverse and also get a simplified whitelisting procedure.
BAYC Members Eligible for IggyBoy Whitelisting
Whitelisted participants will have their wallet addresses pre-approved for minting throughout a specific time window. This means that if the user is whitelisted, they will have an advantage over other interested parties.
Holders of Bored Ape NFTs or otherwise known as members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, will be offered direct spots on the IggyBoy whitelist.
The benefits of being whitelisted include a guaranteed opportunity to buy an NFT, as well as the right to purchase it for a discounted price of 0.055 ETH as opposed to the price for the public sale of 0.088 ETH.
In addition, the project also expects to be listed on CoinMarketCap following its launch.
