Just can’t get enough of those NFTs, can you? Don’t worry…we can’t either! MSQ’s Discovery of the Day runs five days a week and features some of our top picks from across the cryptosphere. Whether it’s Non-Fungible Tokens, DeFi protocols, Blockchain-based games or everything wrapped into one, you can find it right here on MSQ. Today’s entry comes from a true visionary in the NFT space. If you’re not already familiar with his work, well, now’s the time. Say hello to SuperNfty’s IMPS!
Getting A Head with No Body to Stop You
Ever wanted to just detach your head from your body and, I dunno…float around doing nothing in particular?
OK, it’s probably just me then…
In all seriousness, it’s great being a human being and stuff, but we do have to spend a lot of time looking after ourselves. Now, bodies have their uses, there’s no debating that, but…they also require quite a lot of attention. I mean, think about it—you have to clean them, exercise them, protect them (and failing that, heal them), let them rest, cool them down, warm them up. I think you get the idea.
You think I’m advocating some kind of astral projection or something, don’t you? Well, it’s not like that. Not at all. I’m simply saying that bodies require maintenance and that gravity is a bore. Who knows? Somewhere, in some far-flung part of the galaxy, there may very well be a race of aliens that live in a low gravity environment and are just disembodied heads. You can’t disprove it!
Right, so you probably want an explanation for all this rambling, don’t you? Well, in order to do that, I need to give you a brief NFT History lesson, so settle in my friends…
In the past few months we’ve covered a bunch of NFT projects, but SuperNfty’s style is unlike anything I’ve seen before. SuperNfty is a 3D artist (or VRtist, if you prefer) hailing from Belgium. Crafting his signature infamous 1/1 floating heads in Virtual Reality, SuperNfty recently completed his full collection of 264 Floating Heads which come complete with AR-models, 3D print files, a webcam face-filter, profile picture and an MP4 of the Floating Head. After successfully completing the Floating Head Roadmap, SuperNfty has ventured forward with his next endeavors, Superballs & IMPS .
SuperNfty’s Floating Heads
Superballs is a relatively small collection of 3,000 doodles drawn by SuperNfty himself. Every Floating Head holder received 10 Superballs free of charge as a thank you for their loyalty and support. The Superballs were originally created to reward OG Floating Head holders and to play a role in the next upcoming collection, IMPS.
Finally, this leads us to SuperNfty’s next collection, IMPS. Slated for release in December, IMPS is a collection of 10,000 randomly generated, fully-animated 3D heads levitating across the Ethereum Blockchain. Every IMP is synthesized from 250 different traits and more than 30 color palettes. Each trait has been expertly handcrafted in VR by SuperNfty in his signature floating head style.
So if you wanna grab yourself an IMP, there are several ways to obtain a whitelist pass for free. Simply check out the #imps-whitelist channel in SuperNfty’s Discord for more info. Oh yeah, Discord members can also watch live streams, participate in creativity contests, enter giveaways and much, much more. Something else worth noting is that Superballs act as a presale pass for IMPS. What this means is, if you have a Superball in your possession, you can get yourself on that whitelist no problem! Isn’t that just…super…nifty? Haha!
I’m not done yet. Get this, SuperNfty is also in the process of creating Honorary IMPS as a special thank you to early supporters of his collection! Just take a look at the first Honorary IMP created specially for SuperNfty’s first-ever supporter:
‘I wanted to do something special for my first & biggest supporter, @adinalini ’
SuperNfty decided to create a 10k project of his own owing to the fact that certain generative NFT projects he’s seen have inspired him to do so. As SuperNfty himself puts it:
’In many ways, a 10k project is like the “final boss” for collectible creators.“
Given the body of SuperNfty’s existing work, I think it’s safe to say that this move is the next logical step forward for him as an artist and pioneer. With the incredible success of his first hand-modeled collection, SuperNfty has already established himself as a unique creator with vision, drive and foresight. Regardless of what work you hold by this Belgian wunderkind, you can be certain that its value will only accrue over the next few years.
SuperNfty is hardworking, innovative and dedicated, meaning that his work’s style and utility is virtually unsurpassed in a number of key respects. Needless to say, I’m champing at the bit to see just how far SuperNfty’s IMPS will go. Now if you want to get yourself an IMP, check out the dates below and have your wallet at the ready 👀
- Presale (December 17th 2021) - 0.03 ETH
- Public Sale (December 21st 2021) - 0.05 ETH
Don’t miss out on this. Plan ahead (get it?), set reminders, write it on your forehead, and if you can’t do it yourself, laminate a sticky note to your face (OK, don’t do that). All I’m saying is, this collection could very well sell out in record time…
That about does it for this Discovery of the Day. Ensure that you follow SuperNfty on Twitter and join his Discord so that you get all the latest info as it drops. Additionally, if you’d like to watch SuperNfty designing the IMPS live, you can follow him over on Twitch .
Anyway amigos, thanks for joining me on this journey. Take care of yourselves and see you around the Metaverse! Just don’t forget to leave your body, all right?
We will be hosting giveaways for eligible members on the MSQ Discord every Friday at 7PM UTC. Make sure you join our growing NFT community so you can stay on top of news, the latest drops, and everything non-fungible.
