Afro Apes is delighted to announce that the auction of its unique 4k, 3D avatars, distinctly made and positively representing the rich African culture is Live on the Opensea marketplace on the ethereum blockchain.
The digital platform, set to build an Afrocentric presence in the metaverse, is offering NFTs with various traits representing over 160 cultures and traditions from the African continent, produced by the trio of NFT artists, collectors and crypto enthusiasts: Afro Bob, The Chief, and The Warrior.
The world was still getting used to having cryptocurrency around, only for it to get hit with NFTs unplanned. The blockchain community started buzzing with news of millions being raked from the sale of NFTs. In fact, at one time, the co-founder of Twitter, Jack Patrick Dorsey, minted an autographed tweet as an NFT.
NFTs are undoubtedly having a moment. They are the new form of investment with creators, including artists, gamers and brands across the spectrum of culture. They are so valuable that CryptoPunk #9998, part of a collection of 10,000 NFTs, “sold” for $530 million USD. It’s the most expensive NFT ever sold, at least on paper, and it’s not the only successful case with many more artists making headlines; the market is thus proving to be a growing opportunity.
NFTs are making people rich, especially collectors who can mint the art pieces at excellent prices and Afro Apes, with its Origin collection of 160 surreal 3D apes, is poised to follow this trend.
The apes are replete with an array of features and different rarities. They are strong, athletic, cute and fun with sufficient doses of African culture swag. No two apes are precisely alike, and each one of them can be officially owned by a single person on the Ethereum blockchain. ”Each of our apes are one of a kind and programmatically generated from over 160 possible traits, including clothing, backgrounds, expression, culture and more,” said The Chief.
However, the most important feature of the Afro Apes NFT is the fact that the project gives an incredible insight into the diversity and richness of African culture.
To put into proper perspective, there’s a significant rise of NFTs. For who knew that an investment of $45 in CryptoPunks NFT in 2017, would have resulted in a whopping $2,009,680 ROI in 2021. For this project, one thing is certain, with the acumen and insight of the Afro Apes team, the Afro Apes NFTs will undoubtedly be a smart investment choice for every NFT collector and crypto enthusiast out there.
