World of Solana NFTs Heat Up OpenSea
OpenSea gets a dose of sci-fi/fantasy, semi-realistic blockchain heroines
Female characters drawn as NFT artwork continue to be a hot item. World of Solana (WOS) is no exception. First released on the Solana marketplace, Magic Eden, WOS semi-realistic 2D art is now available on OpenSea. Much to the delight of all WOS holders who appreciated the artwork yet wanted it to be seen in a bigger marketplace, including myself. Full disclosure, I currently own the three NFT pieces below.
What is the World of Solana?
World of Solana is an original collection of Solana blockchain heroines drawn by BTG aka Kinga, a famous artist from Poland with nearly 800,000 followers on TikTok, YouTube, and other platforms. The project was minted on March 20th, 2022, for 2 SOL each. The current floor price at the time of writing is 3.3 SOL each, or approximately $373USD on OpenSea. The total collection size is relatively small, with only 2,222 units available. Out of those, 11 are extremely rare 1 of 1 “Mythics”. WOS NFTs have superior artwork with each character trait hand-drawn in a wide range of colors and shades, making the 2D artwork look like 3D characters.
Why should you become part of the World of Solana community?
World of Solana’s goal is to build a community of Solana token fans looking to support the crypto blockchain and its ecosystem. The #1 ranked WOS NFT recently sold for 100 SOL on OpenSea on April 7th, 2022. That’s approximately $11,000USD. Overall, WOS has made 4475 SOL from Magic Eden and most recently OpenSea sales ($505,675USD).
The WOS team is fully doxxed, meaning each co-founder’s identity is known. As mentioned, BTG aka Kinga is a public figure with unrivaled artistic talent in the genre. Her co-founder François, has over 15 years of experience in the financial industry and is fully capable of managing the WOS NFT project. The teams’ goal is to expand the WOS lore into an epic sci-fi/fantasy adventure, where Solana battles the government in both the real and the virtual world.
What are the benefits of buying and holding a World of Solana NFT?
The WOS team launched noncustodial staking recently. So if you are a WOS owner, you’ll start earning $WOS tokens staking while having the World of Solana NFT in your SOL wallet.
Not only that, holders will be able to spend $WOS tokens in the WOS virtual store buying different individual traits items. You’ll be able to customize and tailor your NFT — “swap” stuff out. For example, you can buy a new shirt for your WOS NFT and fuse the new shirt to the current one. Buy some sunglasses too while you’re at it and place them on her face. Now your mutable WOS NFT is ready for her close-up!
WOS NFTs are also looking to be taken into the existing metaverses. This is an idea the team is organizing and planning out according to their “litepaper”.
Last but not least, the project is going to give back “20% of its secondary sales” to the International Conservation Fund of Canada (ICFC); an NGO aiming to conserve natural ecosystems and biodiversity in the tropics and where wildlife diversity is at risk.
Overall, World of Solana has beautiful artwork, a creative team looking to expand the roadmap, and an active community supporting the project and its future.
