A crazy bird fever has taken over the Solana NFT community:
Thugbirdz, the OG birds (3,333) of the Solana ecosystem, leading the rest of the flock.
After launching, they have cemented themselves as one of the key communities in the Solana NFT ecosystem - rivalling Solana Monkey Business. Or, the very least, the bird version of Solana Monkey Business.
Thugbirdz are all about community:
However, getting into the Thugbirdz community and owning a unique NFT is rather pricey. Current floor price is 69.00 SOL.
The Pesky Penguins are chased by a (deflationary) snowball that slowly removes penguins from the floor. The way it works is that part of the sale made in secondary markets is added to a snowball account. The funds in that account is then regularly used to pick up the cheapest penguins sitting on the floor.
The community of Pesky Penguin Club has grown to rival that of Thugbirdz but has a significantly larger supply at 8,888 Pesky Penguins. The burn mechanism has reduced the supply to 8,686 since mint was carried out in October.
While the community of Pesky Penguins is strong, it is still young and the project as a whole will need some time to build up the type of community initiatives that Thugbirdz has up and running.
The latest bird in the Solana NFT ecosystem is the Flamingo Party, that skyrocketed in the second markets after a slow stealth mint.
After a successful stealth mint (1,111) that took around 3 days, the team started the work to get listed on Alpha.art and Magic Eden. It took an additional two days to get listed on Alpha.art, and as soon as the "Mingos" hit the secondary market, Mingos heated up.
At the peak yesterday (18/11), the floor price was above 4 SOL with around 40 Flamingos listed. FOMO hit hard and once it cooled down the floor crashed down to around 2 SOL. Not too shabby for a first day considering the minting price was 0.22 SOL. Magic Eden listed Flamingos today, and secondary markets slowly started climbing up again. Now it has settled around 4 SOL floor for the last two hours
Besides giving strong Thugbirdz vibes through the art, Flamingo Party is ambitious regarding community initiatives. Including airdrops to hodlers of Flamingo NFT ($SHRIMP), and distribution of merch to OG's and passionate Mingos (for free).
Similarly to Pesky Penguins, Flamingo Party has a community fund where 50% of sales will help further the growth of the community through marketing initiatives, and floor sweeping.
Little Noots NFT (2,222) is a derivative of Pesky Penguins, but alongside the hundreds of derivative NFTs, Little Noots is actually awesome, fun, and promising.
Compared to the other NFT bird projects, Little Noots aviary is teeming with utility:
And yeah, the community is strong, and growing. Sub-222 NFTs can be sniped up not far above current floor of 0.22. LFG. Don't snooze on this one at these levels. WAGMI.
