The entire crypto market is on a tear right now. While bitcoin is not making any big moves after a perfect retest, other major altcoins are experiencing a friendly 10-20% price growth. With respect to NFTs, there has been no major change in the floor price of top blue-chip collections. Few NFTs, however, are seeing decent growth amidst this cooldown. Kaiju Kingz is starting to resemble many traits of genesis CyberKongz, and it has established a solid floor price of 3.2 ETH. In our previous list, we have mentioned the Doodles collection. It has also taken off quite rapidly.
After reaching an all-time high, Jungle freaks is now showing less sell pressure at a floor price of 1.4 ETH. If you got in those collections, consider yourself lucky. And try to hold on to them as they could go significantly higher. We always try to highlight the best NFT collections in our weekly list that have great artwork and a community that believes in the vision. This week, we have five projects that we believe we can do well in the next couple of weeks. Let’s get started!
#1 Fat Ape Club
One of the most hyped NFT collections this week is Fat Ape Club. This collection has raked in more than 135k followers on discord in less than one week. The numbers may be inflated due to their marketing tactics, but the concept of the collection looks extremely promising. Adopting the same concept of BAYC, this collection represents apes in a different way.
The team has done a fabulous job in marketing the collection and bringing thousands of new users into the NFT space. They are spending more than $100,000 on marketing campaigns and have decided to explore influencer marketing. We need to see in action how the campaigns are run, so we cannot throw any shade yet. The value addition to Fat Ape holders also seems pretty incredible. The ones who reduce sell pressure and diamond hand their NFTs are promised rewards from the team.
Once the collection is sold out, the second phase of the project begins. The team plans to develop a breeding function for Fat Ape holders. After that, it is up to the community to decide plans.
In terms of minting, the team allotted 2000 slots for whitelists and effectively used them to attract more audience. This most likely helped me create such a massive discord community. The price for minting is a lot less for people who got on the whitelist.

#2 The Billionaire Doge Club
It may be a coincidence that everything related to Doge is skyrocketing in value. The Doge Pound and Doge Pound Puppies are two collections that took off based on the Doge hype. Considering that, we see The Billionaire Doge Club NFT collection to have similar growth. As it is very relatable and the idea is fresh, we can see the demand rising for these NFTs.
This collection showcases 10,000 unique pieces of art with various projects and trait possibilities. The traits are not yet revealed. You will likely see them on launch day. The team has an organized plan to add value to NFT holders and take the project to the next level.
Once the pre-sale is over, they plan to make their first donation decided by the discord community. The exclusive merch is up for grabs when 50% of the collection is sold out. The team is also going to do an ETH raffle for holders. To sustain the price growth and avoid sharp corrections, there will also be a liquidity pool launched 2 or 3 three days after launch. The 3D collection of this project begins when the entire collection is sold out.
This is a unique NFT project as it provides a game in the form of utility, and a breeding function will also be added for Doge and Doggo. The utility of the project doesn’t end with the game. They also have a BDT token which owners can stake to receive rewards. It also helps in stabilizing Open Sea floor prices.

The next collection we have our eyes on is SKULLX. The artwork is aesthetically pleasing, and with Halloween around the corner, we expect these NFTs to sell like hotcakes. The project also comes from an industry veteran who launched the pixel collection at 0.01 ETH and took the floor price to more than 3.5 ETH. We cannot say the same will happen with this new collection, but the community is optimistic about it.
The team has built a strong community with nearly 20k members in the discord server. The engagement is off the charts online, and people are invested in the vision of this project. Random giveaways and Halloween events are making it a lot for members and believers in this project. Recently, they had a pumpkin carving contest and a celebration event after successfully launching on Decentraland.
In terms of minting, the team designed a very different method for previous holders of SKULL X Origins. They get a free mint, and only 666 will be created. For the holders of AEONS, a mint pass is provided before the public sale opens. The roadmap also includes a contract migration and SKULLX fusion.

#4 Meta Homes
A Solana-based NFT collection where people can own cyberspace is launching this week, called Meta Homes. We recently saw Solana NFTs get good traction and hoped to include an emerging project with good plans. These 1000 meta homes live in cyberspace with beautiful home designs. The rarity system includes four main attributes: Mood, Style, Outdoor, and Hobby.
The roadmap for this project is similar to others. The value will likely be driven by the fact that there are only a thousand meta homes. Once the sale is over, the AR models of a home will be released, and holders can have a surreal experience as if it is a real-world mode.
The designs of these homes are widely appreciated in the NFT community, and many collectors seem to be looking forward to minting these NFTs. After the AR models, the community will have a chance to see the second generation of Meta Homes. Now, it is not clear whether it will be another collection or an airdrop. The final stage of the project would be a metaverse integration.
Things you need to know
The final collection on our top 5 NFT list this week is Smilesssvrs. I know the name sounds weird, but wait till you check out their artwork. The Smilessless collection consists of 8,888 3D collectibles that are randomly generated from over 150 hand-drawn features. We inserted this pick mainly because of the artist, Waheed Zai. Also, the team is diverse, with many talented people on board.
Circling back to the artwork, the 3D characters act as a gate pass to the ultimate Smilesssvrs. The team has this focus on culture, fashion, and hip hop. They are not planning to reveal any out-of-the-box roadmap, as the team believes in innovation towards creating the best metaverse experience.
After unlocking the entire collection, the team plans to donate 10% of sales to charity. Weekly events and music nights are also a part of being in the community. Waheed is also designing a merchandise section that is going to come out with the NFT airdrops. We can also expect to see many artist collaborations.
All the listed projects have something unique that we have never seen before in the NFT space. If you want to dig deep into every project, I suggest joining each discord server and understanding how the folks behave every day. You will have more clarity then. That’s it for today! I hope you liked this week’s NFT list and found something you like. Stay tuned for next week.
