3 Popular NFT Projects Coming to Solana

Oct. 13, 2022

While Non-Fungible Token (NFT) sales and market prices are still relatively down and we’re still going through a bear market, Solana NFT sales nearly doubled in September ($122M) in comparison to August ($71M), based on CryptoSlam.

This rise in sales in the Solana NFT scene is mainly due to the release of some quality NFT projects such as y00ts, Critters Cult, and ABC.

Let’s take a look at the collections that may follow the same path in terms of sales volume during October on the Solana network.

Rotten Eggs NFT (Minting October 12th)

Rotten Eggs is a community-driven project that aims to introduce blockchain technology to new people while also finding ways to empower their community members. They’ve already been providing free crypto + NFT education prior to the mint to assist thousands of people in navigating and succeeding in this bear market.

On October 12th, 10,000 Eggs will be dropped on Magic Eden, of which:

  • 4,988 Rotten Eggs
  • 4,988 Fresh Eggs
  • 12 Rotten Legendaries
  • 12 Fresh Legendaries
NFT - Rotten Eggs

The Rotten Egg NFT represents the survival of the bear market. Interesting utility accompanies each NFT, with a TV Show in the makings and 4% of the generated royalties distributed to Legendary Egg holders.

Currently, the team is in discussions with several major networks to discuss hosting the Rotten Egg animated series, with Comedy Central being the most possible network. Holders will have a chance to be a part of the series:

  • Owning a Non-Legendary Egg will allow you to participate in a raffle to have your Rotten Egg featured as an extra in an episode. IMDB credits will be distributed.
  • Owning one of the 24 Legendary Eggs enters you into another raffle to have a co-starring role with actual lines in the TV Show. Other perks include IMDB Credits, voice actor compensation, access to exclusive content such as BTS, bloopers, how the show is made, and a Q&A with the creator.

Another interesting utility of the Rotten Eggs NFT is “Eggucation”, an exclusive holder perk featuring free education from Calvin Williams, a team member with years of trading experience. He will be giving out information and educative content throughout the year to exclusive Discord members.

2,500 pieces already sold out during presale on October 8th and as of this writing 94% of the project had been minted. Additionally, the project jumped to 5th place on OpenSea top Solana NFT collections by volume.

Minting price: 2.5 $SOL
