The NFT world is starting to heat up as artists and developers worldwide release collections that provide an inventive solution to investors and collectors. And the latest addition to the growing base of non-fungible digital art is Tropical Turtle, a low-supply and high-demand art collection that has been taking over the blockchain ecosystem as of late.
Tropical Turtles features a collection of cute turtle characters with a variety of permutations. In addition, the characters sport different accessories like hats, eyewear, and backgrounds, providing a series of digital tokens all based on the same iconic character. Tropical Turtles is also a movement to save the endangered lineage of Sea Turtles by raising funds and regularly donating to the Turtle Conservancy, a 5013 non-profit committed to protecting threatened turtle and tortoise species by conserving their natural habitats.
It’s estimated that only one out of every 1,000 turtles survive up to childhood. While many of these creatures live up to a hundred years old, they’re often the target of poachers in various parts of the world. The Tropical Turtles NFT collection hopes to change that reality while breaking new grounds in the art world.
The Tropical Turtle character and permutations are the creation of the famous digital artist Eday. Also part of the team is Loya, who runs marketing, and Ghost, in charge of development. The NFT launched back on September 28, 2021, and has been on an exponential increase since then. It’s currently available on the Cryptocurrency trading platform Open Sea with a current valuation average of about 0.3 Ethereum per contract. Today, over 700 of these contracts have now been purchased by investors and collectors, and the valuation has now increased over ten-fold in a few weeks. Accordingly, the Tropical Turtle character team has given away multiple freebies and donated up to $10,000 to save turtles from mass extinction.
Once buyers pick up all of the 1,500 NFT contracts, the Tropical Turtle team will donate another 10 Ethereum to the Turtle Conservancy, which will go for at least $30,000 with the current trajectory of the token’s valuation. In addition, the team is currently coming up with a new character called the Tropical Otter, which will spark a new movement to save another animal that faces conservation problems.
The team behind the art mints has worked extremely hard to launch this project and has consequently built up a community that has shown massive support to the NFT and each other. Currently, Tropical Turtle boasts a 50% unique ownership community, which is at the higher tier of the non-fungible community spectrum. The team hopes to continue growing that community as it plans more releases in the coming days.
Non-fungible tokens have proven to be the future of the art community as it provides an inventive way of creating digital art while protecting rights and ownership with blockchain-based ledgers. Accordingly, many artists have started partnering with crypto experts to get their artworks into ecosystems and make a significant profit from the rising demand for NFTs.
Tropical Turtles hopes to continue riding that momentum and create a legacy in the NFT world and in the fight to preserve turtle life. Learn more about the NFT by visiting its website and Twitter account.
