Solana-based DeGods NFT collection could be the next Okay Bears, which hit record sales as the top Solana collection in the Ethereum-dominated market. In the last 24 hours, DeGods have made 37,068 SOL and are currently ranked first on OpenSea. The current floor price of the collection is 597 SOL, with a total volume of over 852,000 SOL.
DeGods is a digital art collection of 10,000 NFTs built by a global community of entrepreneurs, developers, and creators.
“Your DeGod gives you the ability to mine DUST, access to our NFT tracking mobile app DYOR, membership into our community, and tons of other cool sh*t. DeGods can be converted to DeadGods with DUST,” the project’s description reads.
DeGod holders receive royalties ranging from 33.3% to 200% on its utility token, $DUST.
The highest sale of a DeGod NFT was 1,400 SOL (around $42,966).
Some of the DeGods NFT holders include the co-founders of Solana Labs, Anatoly Yakovenko and Raj Gokal, co-founder and CTO of Magic Eden, Sidney Zhang, and other influential Web3 figures.
However, DeGods wasn’t a successful collection from the beginning. In a tweet, team member Taylor explained why the NFTs were considered “dead” nine months ago.
Before the launch, DeGods became viral and was hyped before the mint. The collection sold out in seven seconds after launching in October 2021. Unfortunately, the mint wasn’t smooth, with many losing money and time in unsuccessful mints. People became suspicious of the project, so the floor price went down. The founders received numerous complaints in their DMs each day.
The situation turned around in January when the NFT collection launched $DUST and recreated DeGods. The PFP NFTs renamed to DeadGods now looked like professional art. In April, DeGods became the #1 collection on Solana and broke a record with a 333 SOL floor price. The NFT community (DeDAO) then became the first to acquire a professional basketball team.
One of the crucial reasons the collection is thriving — is the strong community. To market DeGods, holders posted videos that became viral, and the founders held a massive NFT event in Manhattan. As “the greatest community in the metaverse” (that is how DeGods advertises it) is thriving, the NFTs will succeed too.
