The latest launch of a collection of non-fungible tokens (NFT) called Trendy Tigers was announced today as a unique approach combining traditional static digital imagery, 3D imagery and interactive augmented reality (AR) video that allows the wearer to train virtual tigers to do tricks. This has never been seen before in NFT’s assets.
Recent collections such as Axie Infinity, Bored Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks and others have sold for millions, but Trendy Tigers is the first NFT collection that aims to combine both passive appreciation of NFT artwork and actively help them learn a variety of skills. This could be a significant step towards future NFT programming using artificial intelligence and owner recognition capabilities. Key elements of this upcoming NFT launch, as stated in its press release, include:
- Graphically rich artistic experience
- Upgrade to a 3D experience.
- Fashionable tigers with add-ons that can be trained to carry out commands.
- Geolocation of tigers in different cities.
The creators of Trendy Tigers are positioning this launch as “the next level of digital wealth blended with all the experience,” which may or may not be, but represents a unique alternative in the growing stream of seemingly similar NFT offerings.
NFT sales in 2021
NFT sales surged to $ 10.7 billion in the third quarter of 2021, more than eight times the previous quarter as the cryptoasset frenzy hit new highs.
The website states that the base collection contains 9999 2D images like the ones shown above, as well as examples of AR-enabled versions. A limited pre-sale of select items from this NFT collection will take place on November 16, 2021 at 9:00 AM PT on the TrendyTigers.io website.
