Non-fungible tokens, better known as NFTs, are the digital market’s latest trend, but unlike most fads, NFTs are here to stay for the long run. Ever since making headlines in 2021, the future of the NFT market seems encouraging enough for brands to boldly introduce their ventures to the metaverse in the hopes of making it big in the industry. Non-fungible tokens inhabit the metaverse and are simply digital assets in the form of artwork, photos, videos, animated GIFs, and so much more. They are stored in the blockchain along with their proof of ownership, safe from tampering and the likes.
Joining the metaverse this year is none other than the most-awaited Driver Ape Racing Club, a collection of 7,777 high utility NFT apes powered by the Solana blockchain, who are entirely into racing and cars. Each of the 7,777 apes is distinct from each other and is endowed with different traits, taking inspiration from the team’s partnerships with ten of the world’s most remarkable car groups and car influencers. These NFTs provide high utility to their holders as a Driver Ape NFT holder will have access to numerous benefits that the project offers, including an opportunity to attend real-life prestigious car races around the world, as well as have a chance to win their personalized helmets, and be able to join the team for their first actual Karting tournament.
The team’s ultimate goal is to ensure that their holder’s investments are highly profitable and low risk, at most. To do so, they are preparing several strategies after their initial launch to increase the floor price for each Driver Ape NFT steadily. There is no definite date for when DARC will officially join the metaverse. Still, the team behind the project is gearing up for a launch soon, where their first few NFT holders will gain the coveted VIP status and be able to join the whitelist to take part in the NFT’s pre-sale. Details on the date will be announced once the team’s official Discord channel has reached at least 20,000 members.
The developers mainly focus on predominantly having DARC function for the long term. To do so, the team plans to invest over $200,000 in marketing campaigns for their launch sale, and by then, will continue to inject money in influencer marketing campaigns to keep the momentum going around the DARC.
“We want to make sure your Driver Apes thrives through time, and we believe the best way to do this is by planning multiple advertising campaigns even after the initial sale is over,” the developers explain. Through this initiative, the team is set to reward their NFT holders for aiding them with the project’s growth and community. As soon as the project launches, minting will be available on their official website.
As unconditional fans of the ever-so-famous saga, Planet of the Apes, the founders say it was instinctive to choose apes as models for their NFTs. With their ultimate goal of creating their DARC race inside the metaverse, the developers are keen on complying with their NFT holders’ opinions, proven through their future weekly polls in their Discord channel for verified holders.
