Week 23: Goblins leading the charts; three newcomers joining top 10 in their first week
This week goblintown.wtf has reached #1 in sales volume and its current floor price is 5.35 ETH. The project seems to have quite a strong community; however, it doesn’t look like the team is going to do anything about it (e.g. a roadmap etc.). There are a lot derivative projects that are also getting attention, like Goblin Grlz, but as BAYC example shows, even if the original goblins stay in top for a long time, it doesn’t mean the derivatives are going to be successful as well, so buying them is always gambling.
BAYC sales volume has increased by 30% over the last week with its floor price jumping up from 86 to 94.9 ETH. Meanwhile, 200 ETH worth BAYC and two Mutant Apes tokens were stolen in a scam two days ago, after the project’s community manager’s Discord account was compromised.
We Are All Going to Die is a collection of 6,666 free-to-mint NFTs that now has 1.07 ETH floor price on Opensea, which some calls the next goblintown.wtf, as the project that doesn’t even have a website (let alone a roadmap), has earned $15.6 m since its launch on June 4th.
Akumu Dragonz is a collection of 10,000 Dragon NFTs that has gotten a lot of attention after one piece being bought by NFT influencer Cozomo de’ Medici. According to the project’s website, dragon holders gets access to exclusive drops and experiences. It also has a sister collection of Bōryoku Dragonz on the Solana blockchain.
Quirklings is a recently launched 10,000 NFT collection by the team that made Quirkies. The collection minted on June 3rd and has earned $4.7 m due to its engaged Twitter community. Each Quirkie owner is entitled to minting a Quirkling.
A recently launched free-mint Rare Land NFT collection has earned $2 m. The project is trying to bring some innovation to the NFT space with VR experiences; the tokens give access to VR rooms and games and the team promises more VR activities to come.
Rektguy has dropped from #7 to #31 this week showing how quickly no-utility meme projects can lose relevance after the hype is gone. The collection has earned $1.7 m over the last seven days compared to $7.8 m last week.
