It was one hell of a week for NFTs. We have seen some great collections like Lazy Lions and Robotos reach new all-time highs of 3 ETH and 1.5 ETH, respectively. The floor price of both projects skyrocketed in a short period, as the supply dried up and demand increased. They also have a high percentage of unique owners, which shows how well the NFTs are distributed. Robotos is soon going to drop their next collection called Robo pets. Lazy Lions launched their final collection before creating a play-to-earn game called Bungalows. People who minted these NFTs made more than 20x returns in less than 2 months.
To find such projects, we mainly need to verify three things: artist background, community support, and future gaming integration. If any new collections are focussing on all three aspects, then it is a good sign. Now the NFT space is getting bigger and bigger each passing day, making it impossible to filter through projects and find ones that have real potential. To help you with this, we bring you this week’s top 5 NFT collections. I hope you find it useful. Let’s get started!
OUTKAST is an algorithmically produced NFT collection. There are over 10,000 pieces of art in the collection, created by a neural network trained on anime characters and sci-fi ships and landscapes. The images are then combined into new characters and scenes, resulting in an endless variety of Pop Art creations.
The value proposition of this project is quite different from others, for the simple fact that it offers stake rewards in the form of OUTKAST tokens. According to their website, the tokens will be airdropped and holders can trade them in the marketplace. The staking program is unique because it enables holders to create a governance system in the community and everyone can weigh in deciding the future plans.
Another interesting thing I found out was— they have a fusing mechanism that allows the fusion of two Outkast NFTs. This not only creates a much rarer NFT but also introduces a deflationary utility to the project. The team behind OUTKAST also promises a metaverse integration, development of gaming applications, and other members-only benefits.
On the subject of the roadmap, the team is going to airdrop 10 NFTs to random holders once the collection hits 1000 sales. To keep the community engaged, they also plan to give away an actual art top figurine for the most active members on Twitter and Discord. When the entire collection is sold out, holders can start fusing their NFTs to get a more rare Outkast. The community is also going to dedicate 10 ETH for any charity of their choice.

#2 Outlaw Gals Motorcycle Club
The second collection on my list is Outlaw Gals Motorcycle Club. I have included this collection because NFT avatars are attracting more buyers and, as this collection has so many events planned up for its holders, it is likely going to create a great community moving forward. The motorcycle club is a collection of 6000 female NFT avatars that are hand-drawn by Katherine Swampmaid. As we can see in the below picture, each avatar is looking special and unique with many traits and accessories.
The roadmap for this project is pretty legit. When the collection is sold out, the next drop will be actual motorcycles. All holders will receive a free airdrop to compliment their gals. Most projects do this, but OMGC has something more for you. They are also planning to create a metaverse club in partnership with Tall Troll Games. We can expect more as the project matures and the team behind is formidable.
Also, Every Outlaw Gal holder will be entered to win a Harley Davidson Sportster S and the draw will take place once the collection is sold out. Now that’s a good deal. You can visit their website to know more about the team.

#3 The Heart Project
In less than five hours, the public mint sale is going to go live for the Heart Project. It is a collection of 10,000 creative tokens that will give access to the main collaborative portal. Holders can use their NFTs to gain access to the Heart project creative studio. Thousands of contributors will come together and decide on the future plans for the collection. When you are verified as a heart owner, you will gain membership access to our collaborative portal in our discord. This will allow you to decide on & define the creation of all Heart Project endeavors.
The entire project is driven by the community, so even the roadmap is decided by the holders. After the sale, we will see a music video with Jean Dawson. They also plan to release a clothing capsule. The art itself comes with a built-in rarity system that takes into account 235 different attributes. The presale will sell out 5000 NFTs and on the drop date, another 5000 are up for minting.
What stands out in this project is that- it provides a platform for collaboration and mentorship in both music and art with NFTs. As there is a lot of demand in that space, we will see big names pop up sooner than you expect.

#4 SCENES FROM THE SOLVERSE
Infinity Labs is launching a new collection on the Solana marketplace called Scenes from the Solverse. This collection consists of 8,888 NFTs of every corner of the metaverse. There are mainly 1111 unique artworks, and each of them has eight copies that represent eight possible timelines. The artwork could consist of anything from plant life, landmarks to creatures, celestial items, and more.
The pre-sale for this collection is far different from others. It is not first come first serve. They are using the whitelists to give access to their early members before the sale begins. Once the sale is over, you can purchase the scenes from others on Solanart. This is phase one.
In the second phase of this project, we will be seeing more community partnerships with other collections. The team also promised to give free NFTs to members who participate in their lore contests. The third phase is for metaverse merging. Holders who own more than 2 scenes can merge them and create a new and rarer scene. Just like Outcasts- this also creates a deflationary utility value for the project.
Things you need to know
I am adding this new type of project because it is a fully on-chain generative art project on the Solana Blockchain. You can see how it turns out after the official launch, but this is purely for you to understand a new type of collection that is dropping on Solanart. It would be interesting to see how many people are willing to buy art generated on-chain. The roadmap and other details are yet to be announced, so if you are interested, check their social accounts and join the discord server.
If you want to know more about each project, I recommend you to join their discord server 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.
