After more than a month of waiting, Azuki owners have finally gotten a look at their prized Beanz NFTs. Now it looks like the second collection of the red-hot Azuki project will continue the incredible momentum of the project.
Azuki takes over Twitter as Beanz NFT unveils
The Beanz hype technically started back in early April when Azuki holders each received 2 NFT airdrops. However, it was not clear at the time what these airdrops actually contained. Not to mention those mysterious NFT crates promptly turned into piles of dirt. Even so, the mystery of the airdrops only added to the huge sales volume the airdrops saw as the early excitement mounted.
Of course, those airdrops eventually turned out to be really Azuki’s new companion collection, the BEANZ. As might be expected, the excitement surrounding the collection was unrelenting. No wonder given the incredible run Azuki has had over the past few months.
In fact, Azuki has had one of the most successful first six months of any NFT project to date. And judging by much of the Twitter reaction, Azuki’s Beanz NFT collection has a chance to become the most coveted companion drop of 2022.
A cute blue-chip NFT in the making?
At the time of writing, the Azuki Beanz NFT collection has a minimum price of 4.15 ETH. In addition, a total trading volume of almost 44,000 ETH (currently over $120 million) was recorded. Aside from the solid numbers mostly weathering the reveal, a decent number of holders seem happy with the reveal.
Enthusiastic owners flooded NFT Twitter with these uniquely designed cartoon beans. They certainly fit the cute NFT aesthetic while still retaining distinct elements of Azuki style. Could Azuki’s Beanz go the way of MAYC and become a full blown blue chip in its own right? The impact of this new collection on Azuki, which hasn’t had a major misstep so far, remains to be seen.
