  • Instagram followers: 8.9m
  • Twitter followers: 8.2m
  • Spotify monthly listeners: 17.3m

Kuciara

  • Instagram followers: 186k
  • Twitter followers: 9.6k

Verdict

4/5

The secondary market has not been kind to NFT drops from musicians, so this drop is a bit risky to go for. As his second drop, this gives some confidence that Aoki will stay engaged in the space, rather than just taking the money and leaving. Kuciara is a big artist, which improves the outlook, but as this is Kuciara’s first drop we don’t have a price reference yet.

Verdict

5/5

Delbo is one of the biggest NFT artists and the pricing on the packs is on the cheap side given his previous sales. Should be a good drop to go for.

About the drop

Since Nifty Gateway is devoting three whole days to Beeple, there is likely to be a lot of NFTs released in a variety of formats. Beeple has announced that there will be $1 raffles (free to enter and just pay $1 if you win), but in order to enter you will need to answer questions about the everydays. 

Artist community

  • Instagram followers: 2.1m
  • Twitter followers: 364k

Verdict

5/5

Beeple is by far the biggest artist in the NFT space, so this is not a drop you want to miss.
