Moveover Azuki, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Doodles, CloneX and all other crypto collections vying for the top sales spot; there’s a new kid on the block. It’s time to get to know MoonBirds.
Since its launch just a few short weeks ago, MoonBirds has crushed projected sales figures of around $66 million USD (per Crypto Briefing), and instead raked in numbers closer to the $207 million USD mark.
Founded by Kevin Rose, Ryan Carson and their PROOF Collective group, the project was launched into the stratosphere by OpenSea, catching the attention of the entire crypto space with its comical designs and functional utility uses. For example, those who purchase a coveted bird NFT will have access to “Moonbird-related drops, Parliament meetups and IRL events,” on top of all the community engagement practices going on in the group’s PROOF Discord channel.
Up next is its own version of the Metaverse. “Project Highrise” is a way for PROOF to encourage current owners to hold onto their NFTs in order to claim other benefits scheduled down the road.
“They’re a collection of 10,000 utility-enabled PFPs that feature a richly diverse and unique pool of rarity-powered traits. What’s more, each MoonBird unlocks private club membership and additional benefits the longer you hold them,” as stated on MoonBirds’ official web page.
