The early months of 2021 brought a sudden shift in the digital landscape when Non-Fungible Tokens grew in popularity. Although they had been around for some time, the success of established projects ushered in a new era that spawned hundreds of new projects. With countless NFT projects emerging daily, it can be difficult for some to stand out. However, the upcoming project Fanged Beast has a unique edge that will certainly help it stand out in the NFT space.
The NFT space is filled with numerous projects that utilize various mediums, including digital art, music, video clips, and social media posts. Although there are many mediums, many NFT projects often opt for digital art to help them carry out their expansion. The visual medium dominates more than half the NFT space, with the majority delving into the 2D cartoon-style imagery. Fanged Beasts share the same goal of using visual mediums, but rather than the 2D style, the project took the unconventional route of rendering 3D models.
With 2D becoming the standard for NFTs, the founders of Fanged Beast sought to stand out in the market with realistic 3D artworks. The art style decision is based on the founder’s decision to build their own metaverse on Solana. The tigers are rendered to be utilized for a game the founders are currently developing.
“Our aim is to build our own Metaverse on Solana with tribes conquest play-to-earn games,” shared the Fanged Beast founders.
The Fanged Beast NFT project is a collection of 10,000 saber-toothed tigers fighting for supremacy. Each NFT has special traits that relate to each tribe and roles that make them unique so that no two tigers are the same. The Fanged Beast explores the primal and ancestral universe with many projects focusing on sci-fi, futuristic, and fashion art.
The Fanged Beasts collection takes holders to a unique metaverse divided into eight territories. Each one is populated by tribes that are fighting one another to survive. The collection is one of the most unique in the industry as it has never been seen before, coming out of the brilliant minds of the creators rather than taking a page out of other collections. Additionally, they are the only collection to focus on saber-toothed tigers.
“We have a unique universe based on saber-toothed tigers who reappear on earth due to global warming,” shared the founders.
The project first released its teasers on Instagram and Twitter with an image of a tiger’s paw grazing its claw against a wall of ice, teasing prospecting holders with a cryptic message warning them that the ice is cracking with one tribe set to survive. Recently, the social media platforms launched the first look into the official art with a two saber-toothed tiger humanoid hybrid, one resembling a saber-toothed cheetah and the other a green tiger.
Set to launch by the end of February, the Fanged Beast NFT project has already garnered the attention of thousands, giving the founders confidence in the project’s future.
