If colorful, quirky NFTs appeal to you, then The Weirdos’ NFT collection is the right choice. This collection of nearly 10,000 distinct cartoon characters with hand-drawn traits are the core of an attention-grabbing, creative, artist-driven project.
Let’s get to the point: The Weirdos.
What is The Weirdos NFT collection?
First things first, The Weirdos is a generative collection of 9,272 stylistic NFTs with hand-drawn traits. On the project’s website, the project is described as, “A nostalgic, adult-themed universe where your NFT unlocks varying and exclusive levels of access, utility and weirdness.”
The creative force behind The Weirdos is the award-winning illustrator and motion designer, Ghostbreath. The artist has been in the NFT space since early 2021, minting various NFTs before starting on The Weirdos NFT collection. This collection of art combines Ghostbreath’s love for cartoons, animations, comics and pop culture in general. As the name implies, The Weirdos strive to create a world full of quirky, unorthodox characters.
In contrast to most NFT collections of this nature, the Weirdos first came to life as 412 hand-drawn, 1-of-1 characters across 3 series. The Weirdos team decided to slowly build their community with smaller drops, before launching their full collection to all the world.
The 9,272 Clones of the Weirdoverse
As previously mentioned, The Weirdos began with 412 1-of-1s. These are the “OG Weirdos”. On the other hand, the 9,272 NFTs that form the main Weirdos collection are ‘clones’ of the OG Weirdos. What’s more, this collection can be split further into 14 distinct sub-collections. There are seven Weirdo factions, and seven State factions.
The Weirdos NFT collection launched with a presale on April 19th, and a public sale on April 20th. The mint price was 0. 09272 ETH for both sales. The floor price at the time of writing is 0. 025 ETH, a total trade volume of 468 ETH, and 3.7K holders. The narrative-driven approach The Weirdos took to creating the collection is represented by the factions and the whole clone component. While the collection is still being developed, The Weirdos remain in the very early stages of assembling its story and lore. The project is only a week old.
In any case, The Weirdos pays tribute to this story in its Discord and on its roadmap.
So… what the hell is Rat Milk?
One of the major elements of The Weirdos NFT experience is something the project calls, Rat Milk. Rat Milk is the token of The Weirdos ecosystem, aside from the disconcerting, sometimes funny mental images it carries.
Before the presale, potential buyers had to purchase Rat Milk in order to get access to the project. Clearly, Rat Milk will play a big role in the project moving forward but for the moment, there are a couple of ways to get it:
- Verifying your wallet in The Weirdos Discord server
- Through Rat Milk raffle contests in the Discord
- Competing against other Weirdos in Community Games on Discord
- “Doing weird and cool shiz” as the team says. In other words, the server mods will reward active community members with Rat Milk
