The G’EVOLs NFT collection is the latest addition to the EVOL family. The team boldly claims that each of them is unique and can easily steal your girl. It may be hard to see through their disguises and forms, but let’s check out the competition.
Each G’EVOLs NFT is out to steal your girl!
After the team’s successful D’EVOLs release, here comes the G’EVOLs NFT collection. G is for generative, where the 8,888 NFTs are randomly generated from 150 unique traits. EVOL is a 2,000-year-old Cherub that has been cast down to Earth after some disagreement with the management. These traits are essentially disguises that EVOL can take on any given day.
Presently, the project is sold out and only available on the secondary market.
One thing to note about this project is that owners of the NFTs DO NOT own the IP rights to their NFTs. Aside from tribute art of your own G’EVOLs, KidEight owns everything else. It may not necessarily be a bad thing, but it may not sit well with some within the community. Well, at least they were upfront about it before releasing them to the public.
Who is behind the G’EVOLs NFT collection?
KidEight is a digital artist and self-proclaimed disruptor and world builder. New York Times calls the artist an “eccentric creator with a finely honed sense of the absurd”, and rightfully so. Prior to the NFT success, the EVOL creator is well-known for his work with Young Thug, Snoop Dogg, and other notable celebrities.
To be honest, his style and swagger may not be for everyone, but many certainly appreciate his direct, forthright, and no-BS approach. You can listen to his podcast to understand more about the artist himself and also his projects. PS, he claims that they will be better than the Bored Apes.
Check out this project roadmap
First things first, G’EVOLs merch! The merch pack (tees/hoodies/masks) has already landed and many holders have already received theirs. The web store will also go live soon, giving holders access to more exclusive drops. In addition, the team will launch their own 0% fees NFT marketplace very soon. This is to support the growing EVOLs community.
The G’EVOLs NFT collection is not the first EVOL NFTs to surface on the market, and certainly will not be the last. KidEight will continue to produce these insane artworks, continuing ‘The Story of EVOL’. There will even be a physical book to tell the full story.
Another impactful initiative of this project is ‘The EVOL Fund for Little Shits’. Seeing the passion KidEight has for art, it is no surprise that he is looking out for the young artists in the space. This fund will champion and guide them, promote them, and help their projects take off. Way to give back to the community.
On a side note, the team is hosting a popup in NFT NYC. There will be special guest appearances and 1-off merch for the attendees, so remember to drop by!
