As NFT projects prepare to embark on the Metaverse, they seem to be pivoting to an integration mechanism that provides utility from still images.
In particular, Bored Ape Yacht Club has announced a mobile play and earn game with a total volume of over $ 1 billion. Meanwhile, fellow primate projects Cyber Kongz and Smol Brains have announced new gamification features and continue to integrate them into their collections.
Investors are not only looking for projects with a strong community and usefulness, but their technical capabilities also seem to be ranked high on the list. This concept is on the decline as CoolCats’ CoolPets collection becomes apparent after experiencing a series of temporary interruptions at launch and then waiting for the owner to become apparent.
Perhaps the NFT collection is mature and focused on providing what is promised in the long-term roadmap. It may also be looking for ways to maintain value and relevance with their respective communities in 2022.
The project aims to fix the utility
The word on the street has a new term, “play-and-kollect”, a phrase coined by Cyber Kongz. CyberKongz is one of the first collections to integrate token generation mechanisms into NFTs and breeding mechanisms. Its governance token, BANANA, was introduced as a way for users to personalize NFTs and breed Bebe Kongz.
In a similar way, FrankyNines’ SupDucksPFP collection produces a VOLT. This is a utility token that collectors use to purchase materials to generate MegaToad. By integrating the token mechanism and model, the project is also gaming the stacking and holding experience.

To give incentives and usefulness to BebeKongz holders, CyberKongz has announced that each Genesis or BebeKong can be redeemed for CyberKongz VX. CyberKongz VX is a full-bodied 3D pixelated version of the collection.
Since its release on August 15, 2021, the average daily price of Cyber Kongz VX has risen by nearly 193%, with a seven-day average of 3.5 Ether ($ 9,377.41) thin 2.4 Ether ($ 6,430.22) floors. Sitting in Cyber Kongz VX was recently given a utility when they challenged Cyber Kongz’s in-game jungle adventure.
Jungle Adventure will allow owners to take advantage of Cyber Kongz VX to collect Kongnium Ore (ERC-1155 tokens) that can be redeemed for NFTS and BANANA exclusive prize pools.
The comprehensive theme of Play and Collect in the CyberKongz ecosystem is that each piece in the collection is designed to play an important role in providing utility. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it is also maintainable. CyberKongz is not the only collection focused on gamification to provide NFT utilities. CoolCats’s up-and-coming collection CoolPets will be able to earn in-game tokens GOLD. To earn gold, the user must have MILK. This will soon be generated daily by CoolCats.
Beyond gamification, other projects have found that community gatherings are as valuable as utilities.
Built by the community for the community
Built on the Treasure.lol universe and created by Treasure DAO, SmolBrains is a microcosm of the grassroots project. This project is an NFT game developed on the Arbitrum network whose primary PFP changes dynamically.
SmolBrain begins as a lucky monkey, and when bet, it begins to increase its intelligence and brain size. All IQ milestones unlock new features in Smolville’s user land that encourage users to bet on NFTs.
Unrealistic, my @SmolBrainsNFT Continue to earn IQ.
I attended on October 15th, the first day of discord. Create free Smolbrains and land, the rest is history.

The Smolbrains community goes figuratively and literally to the moon, with a current minimum price of 2,525 MAGIC ($ 10,065), currently listing less than 180 out of 13,742, and lots of collectors, gamers, and DeFi experts who believe in the Smolville ecosystem. It suggests that you are. Its potential reward.

Pets appear to be in season as SmolPets have also arrived at the site of all SmolBrain and SmolBody holders. DeadFellaz has just launched the DeadFrenz collection, but will have future usefulness within the horde ecosystem.
A strong community is commonly described as the reason why certain collections are considered popular and successful. However, the strong community is also looking for ways to ensure some reward for early capital investment.
For some NFT investors, buying artwork is more than just a capital investment. Community members invest their time and talent in project initiatives. Second, the development team has a strategy to attract and maintain the attention of its members in order to maintain and drive the value of the project.
