BY Lorepunk

January 15, 2024

Let’s face it: The NFT space moves really fast. Considering how quickly things can change in the metaverse, a week in NFTs might as well be a month IRL.

Don’t get us wrong — the merrier, the more people onboarded into the space. But because of the constant influx of great art and ideas, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the news, launches, and general happenings.

Well, you can put the days of endless Twitter and Discord scrolling behind you as we pull together a weekly list of upcoming NFT drops you don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look out for this week.


Who: knownasdollar

What: 3 SOL. A three-stage process: pre-sale airdropped at 8 pm UTC, followed by an allowlist mint and then a waitlist mint open to any wallet that entered the project’s allowlist raffles. The allowlist and waitlist can mint one per wallet.

When: Jan. 16


Why: This hotly anticipated mint aims to bridge the gap between the Solana and Ethereum NFT communities and has smartly reached out to the top communities in the space, building a loud backdrop of FOMO. The project will likely pump at mint, and Dollar and the team are promising high-level brand activations and partnerships.

Patrick Amadon – Sequence

Who: Patrick Amadon

What: Seven 1/1s for auction, released one a day for a week

When: Starting Jan. 16


Why: Physical oil-based works and AI alchemy collide in a set of works that use AI to reimagine Amadon’s paintings. These works on SOL are likely to be visually stunning and widely desired as the artist’s foray into fine art on SOL continues. We’ve not had a preview of the works in the collection, but Amadon has been posting a lot of new work on his X account.

Pizza Ninjas

Who: NinjaAlerts

What: .03 BTC, 1500 Ninjas optimized for use as profile pictures on X and Discord

When: Jan. 18, 10 a.m. EST allowlist, then a series of waitlists, then public sale at 2 p.m. EST

Where: Magic Eden. (You can learn more about the collection at

Why: A lot of thought has gone into this Ordinals collection, with colors selected by ColorSchemer founder Max Savin, using science! They’re also designed as PFPs from the bottom up: for example, every Ninja has room for the emoji and hands we use on Twitter Spaces. Spearheaded by Trevor.btc, Ninjalerts CEO and host of Not Financial Advice with nft now.
