Changing the world with free NFTs 


ChainLeftist is launching Blood Journey, an upcoming dynamic NFT collection. 

Here’s what we know: 

  • Price: FREE

  • Supply: likely 300 NFTs (but still TBD)

  • Chain: Ethereum 

Our take

As the blockchain gobbles up more of the world’s economic activity, we’re destined to see infinite new ways that NFTs get tied to all sorts of onchain actions – think paying rent, betting on the Superbowl, owning X or Y, ordering an excessive amount of uber eats, etc. 

As long as the data is onchain, virtually any other project can reference it without needing permission. 

Another opportunity is connecting crypto art with real-life causes, upgrading the kind of political art that’s always been a mainstay in the trad scene but hasn’t shown up in NFTs to the same degree. 

Here’s a perfect example…

Meet ChainLeftist

He’s a curator and onchain experimentooor of the highest order, who has been covering the Gaza conflict recently and bringing awareness to the issue any way he can. 

Now he’s merging the two with an upcoming drop called Blood Journey

Blood Journey encourages political action in three ways: 

  1. Allowlist spots go to those who “speak up” about the Gaza conflict and call for a ceasefire on social media (holders of his earlier NFTs also get spots)

  2. Once on the list, you’re required to send one of three onchain messages (e.g. “Ceasefire NOW”) in order to mint

  3. The art itself evolves when a holder sends an onchain donation to Palestine Children's Relief Fund (visuals are also impacted by his earlier collection

That last point is particularly interesting. Buying political art as a show of solidarity is one thing, but unlocking utility or dynamic art through donations is a new level of aligned incentives I hadn’t quite seen before. 

Makes you wonder what else is possible: 

  • Auto-bulk-transferring mint proceeds to a cause (without needing to trust creators) 

  • Sending royalties as donations 

  • Airdropping NFTs to people who previously donated 

Bottom line 

A rare collection with meaningful real-world consequences and a sign of things to come. 

NOTE: These drops are lightly curated. Our only requirement is that they have recognizable founders. As usual, DYOR. To learn more go here.

Fragmented Frames by Alex Kittoe & Nevin Johnson

While the art scene on Ordinals has grown substantially this year, some genres like photography have lagged, possibly due to file size limitations.

But the tides could turn tomorrow as creative duo Alex Kittoe and Nevin Johnson (both experienced ETH creators) pair up for Fragmented Frames.

One for nature lovers, this small collection showcases serene sea and mountain landscapes with an optional physical claim.

Originally scheduled for launch today, they moved the mint to tomorrow due to launchpad mishaps.

PUPPIES by ClownVamp

Possibly the cutest art collection ever to hit my desk is here with PUPPIES, the upcoming release from pseudonymous AI artist ClownVamp (it’ll also be the first drop of the Tender x Verse exhibition).

Beneath the façade of these colorfully innocuous post-photography portraits of men with mountains of baby dogs lies a deeper message about the emotional overload caused by perfectly optimized AI social media algorithms.

”No one man should have all that power those puppies” – ClownVamp, maybe

BAC Games - Genesis Role NFT

If you’ve hung around crypto the last 3 months, Blast should ring a bell – one of the most hyped ETH L2 launches ever, with a ton of market attention (and capital) locked into it.

It’s not in my scope to do a macro analysis on it, but with the mainnet launch imminent, projects like BAC Games will soon be vying for your clicks.

This is a series of casual games launching with a browser-based racing game and a Genesis Role NFT. You can find more details here, but gameplay is not available yet, and we’re still waiting on mint price.

The team behind it is not doxxed, so I’d tread lightly, but they’re backed by UltiverseDAO, an organization that was just funded by some recognizable figures.
