June 06, 2022

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 more people onboarded into the space, the merrier. 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 put together a weekly list of upcoming NFT drops you definitely don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look out for this week.

Why: Bloom Collective co-founders Hannes Hummel and Dexamol are presenting the “next chapter of artist collaboration” with this upcoming collection.

What started as his personal response to the pandemic in its first phase quickly grew into something much bigger. Since his first collection on SuperRare, Van Lew went on to land his biggest ever sale at Sotheby’s London by continuing this project, and recently his first-ever museum project by its third phase.
