NFTs have become extremely popular among the masses, with more new NFT projects being launched each day in 2022.
With so many NFT choices on OpenSea, it may become quite hard to decide where to start. So, here's a selection of unique upcoming NFT projects for inspiration.
New NFT Projects Releasing In 2022
VeeFriends in an NFT project, but also a ticket. With 10,255 VeeFriends in total, each NFT is a ticket to the multi-day VeeCon event. This can only be attended by the holders of VeeFriends. The first VeeCon will take place somewhere in North America, before May 5, 2022.
VeeCon will be among the first NFT ticketed conference in the world and is a place where community members can come together to explore and share ideas, make friends and explore other community benefits together.
However, these benefits will expire on May 4, 2024 according to the website, transforming into your more standard artwork NFTs.
Crypto Baristas, scheduled to launch on 2nd February 2022, will comprise 60 caffeine-loving characters, that will inaugurate the world's first NFT funded cafe.
The owners of these NFTs will be eligible to enjoy "Caffeinated perks" for life for all future cafes and websites. The owners will also get a chance to manage "Barista bank", a fund set aside from the project's earnings.
The project will also host seasonal launches where holders get additional benefits along with other caffeinated perks and governance advantages.
Guild of Guardians
Not an NFT project in the traditional sense, Guild of Guardians is an upcoming play-to-earn game that we've put on our list of top NFT games coming in 2022.
With alpha and beta tests expected later this year, fans of 'GameFi' can pre-register for Guild of Guardians' launch. It already seems pretty popular, too. Over 150,000 have registered.
The Nouns project is an adorable, one-of-a-kind NFT project that intends to integrate identity, community, governance, and treasury that a community can make use of in the future.
The project will mint one NFT a day, forever. Nouns also will have its DAO which is responsible for collecting the proceeds earned via the sale of these NFTs. The main treasury is governed by Noun holders who ultimately decide the course of the project.
While not officially announced yet, Nike seems ready to enter the NFT space in 2022 following its acquisition of RTFKT Studios, a company that creates digital shoes.
