NFTs are back on track! It is safe to say that we have overcome the major correction a few weeks back, and we are heading in the right direction. Last week, many projects had their breakthrough moment. Sneaky Vampire Syndicate and Galaxy Eggs hit all-time high floor prices. Both communities are growing at an incredible pace which justifies such a quick ramp up. We also saw Robotos and Lazy Lions breakout from a consolidation zone and hit new all-time highs.
This week, we will explore five projects in the NFT world that are going to reveal some of the most aesthetically pleasing artworks. The community support and online engagement of all these projects are legit. The utility value of NFTs is superior in some of these projects, as they have staking mechanisms and future games for holders.
Yakuza Cat Society
The story behind Yakuza Cat society is pretty unique. When the first Oyaban passed away, the society split into two organizations. One of them rules Tokyo, while the other takes over Osaka. Both these organizations constantly fight and aim to rule all of Japan.
8,930 randomly generated Yakuza cats should come together and make a move on society. The team also plans to give away 10 NFTs as airdrops. They will also buy back Yakuza cats that are listed above 0.5 ETH till they reach 20ETH.
I am excited to see this collection because the team behind it is planning to grow the society in a decentralized way. They are introducing NFT staking, where each holder gets 100 DAMA tokens every day for 30 days. This will eventually create an NFT DAO that will focus on rewarding Yakuza cat owners and improve the culture of raising syndicates freely.
The staking program is going to distribute nearly 27 million DAMA tokens. And once the 30-day period is over, the community can vote and decide how to proceed with the token issuance and compensation. This not only helps in building a strong community moving forward but also takes care of liquidity problems.
Another feature that caught my eye is— play-to-earn. As the project matures and enters into the final stages of development, Yakuza cat owners will be able to spend time in a Decentraland metaverse and earn some passive income.

Soldiers Of The Metaverse
An army of 7,500 battle-tested soldiers is ready to defend the metaverse and save the planet for the greater good. The Soldiers Of The Metaverse is an innovative project that aims to leverage blockchain technology to create a world of its own.
The mastermind behind these soldiers is Carlos Dattoli. He is a well-known illustrator in the DC and Marvel worlds. His work for Power Rangers, XM Studios, and Hasbro is widely recognized.
Along with Carlos’s brilliant artwork, the team has prepared a roadmap that is eventually going to create an ecosystem for all the evolved soldiers. The soldiers will also have an Army commander with heavy weapons and tools. They also plan to donate 10% of the trade volume to different peace-inducing charities. In later stages, these causes can be decided by the community.

WynLambo of VOID
We recently covered VOID in our spotlight series part 1, and we mentioned WynLambo is the next species launching on Void Verse. These creatures are the nemesis of the VOIDs, and the collection consists of 9,999 randomly generated 3D NFTs. As it is a second mint drop, previous owners of ImmaDegens will get a free WynLambo, given they have 3 VOIDs.
The team also plans to airdrop more than 50 WynLambos to any VOID holder, irrespective of how many they have in their account. The snapshot of all wallets will be taken on Wednesday at 6 PM EST. If you are a VOID holder, you can claim your WynLambo directly from the website. There will be a minimum of 6,666 Wynlambos, and the max number will be announced after taking the snapshot.
I chose this collection this week because it not only has significant market demand but will also bring new users who missed the previous mint. WynLambos can also be used in the metaverse and ImmaDegens, making phase two of the roadmap more exciting. Once all 9,999 WynLambos are sold and distributed, we will see more integrations coming with the Somnium Space, and Rigged 3D avatars are also promised.
In my opinion, VOID is the most underrated project right now. It has a bright future because the end goal for this project is to make users experience metaverse by using their own NFTs. As there is more utility to this collection, I believe more people should start paying attention. Also, the VOID community is one of the strongest in the space right now.

Broadcasters are a collection of 7,777 programmatically generated NFTs that have over 300 different traits. The main ones are outfits, screens, colors, body, accessories, and head. We have seen vintage collections before, but this one is special. They already launched Early Broadcaster Comics, which is a collection of 555 comics.
With the launch of Broadcasters, all the EBC owners can leverage their free mint pass and claim 1 BCS token for gas. They also get an airdrop of 3D Broadcasters that are dropping later this year.
The roadmap for Broadcasters is as transparent as any top collection we have seen before. The team is planning to give away 25% of their royalties to Broadcaster and EBC NFT holders. As it is a community-centric NFT collection, future plans can be decided by the users.
The team behind Broadcasters is impressive. Akiro, Founder and CEO of Broadcasters, has vast experience (nine years) in the world of Crypto. They also added six members to handle the artworks and designing of the NFTs. If they execute as promised, this collection could blow up sooner than we expected.

Citadel of the Machines
When was the last time you used your NFT and played an online game directly from your internet browser? Let me guess- NEVER. We rarely see a collection offering users an online environment to roam and explore with their NFTs. We know VOID has integrations with Somnimum space, but it is quite a struggle to figure out the whole metaverse for normal users. With Citadel of the Machines, you can create levels, traps, and solve puzzles in a fully functional Sandbox integrated virtual world.
An even more interesting part about this collection is that it offers players rewards for simply creating customized maps. If their map gets used more, they receive HERA tokens, native game tokens of Citadel of the Machines.
In the series one launch, there will be 9,969 playable Hexadroid NFTs, and users can immediately start interacting with the map editor and Sandbox environment. As the game evolves, there will also be a tools marketplace, allowing users to sell in-game assets for profit.
In terms of rarity, there will be 27 Mythics and 82 Legendaries, and the remaining belong to Epic, Rare, and Common.

NFTs are risky, for sure, but you will see their real value when you look at them from a broader perspective. Most of the projects mentioned above have some unique utility. Few of them offer metaverse integration. Others have staking programs planned. With more innovation in this space, these projects will be ahead of ordinary generative-profile pictures.
If you want to know more about each project and deep dive into how it was created, I recommend you to join their Discord and talk with as many members as possible. Gain insights and understand what market demand they are planning to fulfill. I hope you found something you like in this series. I will be back next week discussing more on the latest NFT collections. Till then, stay safe and don’t FOMO into projects without doing proper research.
