Sappy Seals is a collection of 10,000 adorable seal NFTs with a home on the Ethereum blockchain. It is a community-driven project, with a focus on expanding the metaverse. This month, they celebrated their one-year anniversary, and at that point, they released further plans for their future.
The Team Behind Sappy Seals
Sappy Seals was launched on September 2nd, 2021 by @wabdoteth, who also founded the Pixlverse, a metaverse platform that has strategically partnered with numerous other NFT projects to build a powerhouse group.
Alongside his Ethereum ventures, Wab is well-known in the Cardano NFT space.
On Twitter, Wab often speaks on various elements of the cryptocurrency and NFT space. Particularly, in recent times, he’s discussed surviving and thriving through a bear market and comparing various blockchains.
Many have spoken about him being an extremely hard worker on his project, Sappy Seals, which has clearly cemented itself as one of the best collections.
Without a doubt, the majority of NFT Twitter often mention the strength and togetherness of the Sappy Seals community. Although most see it as a good, positive community, others see it as a “cringe” community. They are often referred to as “sh*tposters”, which can be taken as a positive or negative thing.
One user, @MrPJCooper, said: “Sappy Seals seems to have the coolest community members out there.” @Web3Willyy added: “Sappy Seals is crushing my timeline this last week. Strongest community in the space, perhaps?”
However, on the other hand, @0nlyPabs said: “Sappy Seals community never ceases to surprise with its weekly cringe.”
Sappy Seals holders are able to stake their NFTs in order to earn $PIXL, their ERC20 utility token within the Pixlverse metaverse. The Pixlverse offers things like gamified yield farming, metaverse land, game modes, and more. Also, there is a marketplace for metaverse items available for holders to use in-game within the Pixlverse.
For their staking, it uses an innovative rarity-based contract. This means that depending on the rarity of holders’ NFTs, depends on the amount of $PIXL they will earn. For example, base-level seals can earn 50 per day, and the 28 1:1 seals can generate 500 per day.
Currently, the price of $PIXL sits at $0.0005748 USD, having reached an all-time high of $0.006683 in November 2021.
