Cardano NFTs have turned some heads in the past 8 weeks as network stats have already revealed how much activity is going on in that particular part of the overall NFT market. At the end of March, it became clear that the next big thing is going down on the Cardano blockchain.
What is the Clay Nation and how does Snoop Dogg fit in this world full of clay characters?
It is not the first time that Snoop Dogg gets involved in a crypto project. The OG rapper is a known member of the Bored Ape Yacht Club and repeatedly showed his support for Dogecoin along with Gene Simmons and Elon Musk. But that’s just half of his story and involvement in crypto. Snoop also owns digital land in the Sandbox metaverse.
It seems that it is time Snoop Dogg has taken an interest in Cardano’s NFT landscape when he partnered with the Clay Nation. The collection already became available in January and consists of 10.000 different NFTs each picturing an individual clay character.
It was this weekend when the Clay Nation made its next move and created even more opportunities for NFT holders and the public alike.
As most NFT projects opted for digital land plots, the Clay Nation isn’t that much different. NFT holders had the opportunity to mint their own pitches in the Sonic Village or a place called Underworld. The only land pitches that became available to the public on pre-sale is the Baked Nation.
In the future, pitches will become customizable and each collectible will act as a key to unlockable content. It will be unreleased music from the son of Snoop Dogg, Champ, which is produced by his father. Interestingly enough, the NFTs will represent ownership in form of shared commercial ownership.
Another bonus will be a token allocation per pitch that is still to be announced. What we do know is that CLAY will become the projects very own token, adding further value to the ecosystem. In the meantime, some of the NFTs became available on the secondary market. At the time of writing the prize is ranging somewhere between 799 ADA and 420.000 ADA for a clay character. Pitches at the Clay Nation start a little bit cheaper with 540 ADA.
