0n1 Force is the hottest generative art NFTs in town. The collection’s incredibly creative lo-fi artwork and the amount of detailing on each NFT has struck a chord with the wider NFT community. So much so that the collection sold out in just five minutes after its launch last month!
Since then, 0n1 Force’s price has skyrocketed, reaching around $30,000 in late August. Today, its average price is $7,400, according to NFT Stats. Moreover, they are the fifth top collection in terms of sales volume, generating $235.43 million in the last 30 days (at the time of writing).
Let’s find out all about the NFT collection!
What is 0n1 Force?
0n1 Force is a collection of 7,777 generative side-profile, lo-fi style characters. It features 100 hand-drawn attributes created by artist IMCMPLX. As the collection is fully sold out, you can only get the NFTs from secondary markets like OpenSea.
0n1 Force: Detailed artwork, a great story, and a dedicated community
There are several reasons why the collection quickly became a favourite among NFT enthusiasts. One is the creative artwork and intricate details on the characters. Impressively, the collection went big on diversity. From hearing aids to kimonos and bald heads and dreadlocks, the details made the collection truly universal.
The second reason is the story. 0n1 Force belongs to the Ethereal Enclave, a peaceful kingdom that grants eternal life. However, the kingdom crumbles after the Emperor unexpectedly dies. Now, the 0n1 Force has only 7,777 hours to live, and they have to fight for survival.
“Strength, spirit, and style are what you’ll need to survive in the Ethereal Enclave,” the project’s website notes. The powerful narrative truly resonated with the NFT community.
Once they had a great story down, on1 Force gave it their all to build a strong community. Be it the Meebits or the Bored Ape Yacht Club, we have seen the huge role the community plays in an NFT project’s growth. The same has been the case with on1 Force.
From the beginning, the project played it right by building its community. Even before the collection dropped, on1 Force’s Discord had 15,000 members. Today, that number is close to 26,000 (at the time of writing). Their Twitter, meanwhile, has 50,000 followers.
How exactly did the project achieve all this? on1 Force hosted giveaways, contests, anime movie nights, and collaborative storytelling projects for its community. On its Discord, for instance, the project has created an 0N1 Daily Living section, where creative stories about on1 is regularly shared. Remarkably, it has also added traits to the NFTs to honour community members – the two lead Discord moderators – such as the canary and rose.
Rarity: The three clans
on1 Force is divided into three clans: Y0K-A1, B4K3M0-N0, and 0N1. Members of each clan have different traits and vary in rarity.
Y0K-A1 or Ghost Spirit
Y0K-A1 or Ghost Spirit is the common type and represents the main citizens of Ethereal Enclave. There are a total of 5,278 (68%) of these, donning a variety of outfits and accessories. These are mostly colourful and feature a clean lo-fi style. Some of their rare traits include cat ears, gasmask, Obsidian Kitsune, and a loop earring.
B4K3M0-N0 or Monster Form
The next type is the uncommon B4K3M0-N0 or Monster Form. They belong to the ranking class and feature a blend of tech and fashion. They look ferocious and represent 27% of the population (a total of 2,100). E-A1D, Rose, Fedora, and 7 Earring are some of their rarest traits.
0N1 or The Demon
Lastly, 0N1 or The Demon is a rare type, with only 392 in existence. Of course, they are the elites in the kingdom, calling all the shots. These feature a luxurious style with Hannya Masks, Suits, and more. Some of their rare traits are Haunted, Canary, Gold Reflective Jacket, Strawberry Pin, and Y0N1 Pin.
However, there’s one more type that the project kept hidden till minting began: K4M-1 or The Gods. These are extremely rare, with only seven in all. These characters face the opposite direction than the others and are equipped with exquisite helmets and jackets. Everything about them screams supremacy!
Some notable sales
Undoubtedly, with the kind of popularity 0n1 Force has enjoyed, some of these NFTs have been sold for hefty sums. Just weeks back, YouTuber and avid NFT collector Logan Paul bought K4M-1 #03 for a whopping 188 ETH or around $623,000. Interestingly, TheNFTer2 had bought this for 47 ETH, before selling it to Paul. The NFT features a Citrine Technogod background, an 03-Divine helmet, and an 03-Bomber Jacket.
Another top sale is that of 0N1 #4650, which fetched its owner around $353,200. It has some rare features like Gold Tech Jacket, Pearl VR, Jasper Spiky Hair, and Uwu mouth. It is currently up for sale for around $860,000.
While 0N1 #2856 was sold for $311,000, 0N1 #3627 and 0N1 #1132 was sold for $293,000 and $281,000, respectively.
The future of 0n1 Force
Today, 0n1 Force is one of the most sought-after generative art NFTs. As per DappRadar data, it is the 12th top all-time NFT collection (at the time of writing), which is no small feat for a collection just about two months old.
For now, the project has a solid roadmap in place. This includes a limited release of character-based merch, initial metaverse planning to bring the characters to life, events, and collaborative exhibitions. Moreover, the team has also started the drafting of a comic book.
To mark their latest milestone of reaching 50,000 followers on Twitter, 0n1 Force has hinted at a surprise for 0N1 holders. If you are a member (or planning to become one soon) you might want to keep an eye on the project’s social media handles.
While several generative NFTs have launched in recent months, collections that fair well are those with great artwork, a good story, finite mints, and a strong community backing. And 0n1 Force checks all the boxes! For now, the project seems to have a bright future ahead, and have all the potential to take on other big NFT projects.
