As we head into 2022, here’s an NFT collection that you should keep an eye on—Invisible Friends. For now, the collection hasn’t revealed much. We don’t know anything about the traits, roadmap, mint price, or even the drop date. Even then, the Invisible Friends NFT collection has become one of the most-hyped collections to watch out for, with around 147,000 followers on Twitter!
Invisible Friends NFT collection: What we know so far
Invisible Friends NFT collection features 5,000 animated NFTs created by animator and illustrator, Markus Magnusson. Based on some of the sneak peeks the team shared on Twitter, the artworks look simple and eye-catching. No wonder every other NFT enthusiast wants to get their hands on these striking animated NFTs!
Of course, an acclaimed animator like Magnusson working on the characters adds to the hype. He has 188,000 Instagram followers and has sold several NFTs before. A notable one among these is the Invisible ghost friend man, which was sold for 4.8723 ETH or about $18,600 last October.
While Magnusson is the creator of the Invisible Friends NFT collection, the collection itself is part of the Random Character Collective. They recently launched two other projects, SlimHoods and Mood Rollers.
The Ethereum-based Invisible Friends NFT collection is slated to release in February 2022. Unlike most NFT projects, Invisible Friends is planning to make the drop completely pre-sale. This means, your best chance to get your hands on these impressive NFTs is to get on the whitelist.
“WL roles are currently being given out to valuable community members,” Random Character Collective noted on its Discord.
So, how can you get on the whitelist?
Once you reach above level 10 in Discord, you can participate in mini-games to get on the whitelist. Alternatively, if you are an artist, then creating unique and creative fan art can also get you in on the coveted list.
“Additionally, our community mods keep track of who is best deserving of the role, therefore if they notice you being helpful or bring a good vibe, you might just have a chance!” the project added.
Besides, 50% of the WL spots will be reserved for SlimHoods and Mood Rollers holders. So, if none of the above options works out, then you may want to consider buying any of these NFTs.
What is the Random Character Collective?
Essentially, Random Character Collective is a collective of animated generative projects. It all started when James Curran, a.k.a, SlimJim, was working on his NFT project, SlimHoods.
“While working on SlimHoods, I always had the idea in the back of my mind that I wanted to use everything I was learning when creating my own animated generative project to help other animators do the same,” SlimJim wrote in a Discord message. “There are many generative NFT collections out there, but still very few animated collections despite there being so many extremely talented animators in the NFT world.”
He then collaborated with artists working on animated generative projects and launched the collective. While the collective launched SlimHoods in October, MoodRollers by Lucas Zanott was launched in December.
