May 22, 2023

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 pull together a weekly list of upcoming NFT drops you definitely don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look out for this week.

Index Grids

What: 113 evolving NFTs

When: May 24 at 2 p.m. ET

Where: Wild.xyz

Why: Index Grids, from Andre Oshea, is a limited edition project meant to explore the “symbiotic, sometimes uneasy, and ultimately inextricably-linked relationship between the artwork, the artist, and the art market.” Each of the 113 tokens in the collection will evolve between four phases each time the token is transferred to a new owner.

Empire

Who: Kids Of The Apocalypse, Icona Pop, and Reo Cragun

What: Open edition

Why: Following a sold-out Solana collection, the audiovisual experience and multimedia franchise known as Kids Of The Apocalypse (KOTA) is gearing up for another unique drop.

Who: Figuregot

What: 9,000 PFP NFTs

When: May 25, time TBA via Figuregot Twitter

Where: Figuregot.io

Why: Formed in the childhood bedroom of creator Jess Wiseman and her brother Callum over a decade ago, Figuregot is a dynamic project said to be “inspired by the childlike joy of trading cards and collectibles.” The team (consisting of co-founders AliWinny, and the Wiseman siblings) devised a “reverse roadmap” concept to work on building partnerships and products before taking its digital collectible to mint. Figuregot will be giving each holder the opportunity to redeem a FigureGot Figurine for free. The brand’s goal is to use its IP to innovate in the fashion, streetwear, and tech spaces.

Where: OpenSea

Why: Open Headition is an “infinite generative open edition” created by Taylor Might. Best known as the creator of Dippies and Fethers, this latest from Might takes inspiration from mushrooms — specifically, how they form colonies that are connected in a similar fashion to the human nervous system.

Holy Script

Who: Sarah Script

What: Generative open edition

When: May 26 @ 1:30 p.m. ET

Why: From Sarah Script — Web3’s most prominent calligrapher — comes Holy Script: a celebration of the power of the written word. The project consists of a vast array of literary NFTs, with each token featuring a word calligraphed by hand with ink on paper. The project is meant to imply that words themselves are sacred because they have meaning to the reader.
