Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have taken the digital world by storm, so much so that everyone from celebrities to commoners, everyone wants to get a piece of the pie. But not all NFTs are affordable for all either due to the high gas fee (for Ethereum-based NFTs) or the very floor price of particular NFTs. So, the best way to get into the NFT game is to look for upcoming NFT airdrops.
Our Founder Morten recently bought his first Crypto Punk for 68 ETH. Did you know that even punks were minted for free in 2017?
In this article, we have curated a list of upcoming NFT airdrops and the ones offering free mints. But you must remember to do your own research (DYOR) before investing or making your final transactions.
Lunar Crystal NFT Airdrop
Lunar is a Defi ecosystem that aims to revolutionize the way we interface with crypto. The project is the first on our list of upcoming NFT airdrops that starts on March 1. For anyone participating in the Lunar Crystal NFT airdrop, it is giving away at least 1 NFT.
Lunar (LNR token) is based on BSC that distributes passive earnings to its holders. You can join this upcoming NFT airdrop through CoinMarketCap.
Baby Ape Beast (BAB)
Baby Ape Beast is a collection of 10,000 digital Baby Apes that will give its owners complete member-only access to the community. Each Baby Ape is unique with a total of 150 traits. BAB is an upcoming NFT airdrop where the first 50 BAB NFTs are reserved for their VIP holders for free minting.
Its minting fee has not been revealed yet, however, the collection will go live for public sale on March 1, 2022. The project also has an upcoming ETH giveaway to 5 winners of its different contests. BAB NFT long-term holders will also be eligible for free 3D NFT as per its roadmap.
InverseHAPE is an upcoming NFT airdrop collection of 8181 Hapes living on Polygon. The first 1181 members of its discord community will receive free mint Hape. The remaining 7000 Hapes will be available for 10 MATIC each, which is quite a low price for any current NFT.
Although there is not much information available in the public domain, the collection has 3D Hapes that looks promising as a PFP NFT. You can find most of the project information on its Discord channel followed by Twitter.
Metablobs is an NFT collection of 100,000 Metablobs that are available for free minting on Polygon. The motive of this collection is for everyone to hold an NFT. With a variety of traits, Metablobs are free to mint NFTs except for the transaction fee.
While 10,000 Metablobs are available on Ethereum (with high gas fees), 90,000 Metablobs are available on Polygon (an L2 known for its low transaction fee) to make the collection more accessible. An interesting thing about this project is that you receive one additional NFT for every Metablob you send to your friends.
