The WOW Galaxy is WOW’s second collection, aimed to onboard thousands of people to their team and vision: “onboarding thousands of people to this new era of the web, launching partnerships with major brands and supporting artists and nonprofits.”
Their inaugural collection was released on July 27th (2021), and should now be considered as a blue-chip project which generated some fascinating numbers, from 61K ETH volume to a 13 ETH Floor price.
Next to being fully doxed and launching this second collection, artist and co-founder Yam Karkai
also confirmed that 10% of all primary sales from WoW Galaxy will go to the WoW Foundation
in order to execute their vision in supporting emerging creators.
It’s still unclear if the WOW Galaxy collection will have its own roadmap, however, they have mentioned that the WoW Galaxy holders will be considered “contributors and investors in the WOW mission”. This means it comes with unique benefits such as:
- Invited to the WoW Gala.
- Ownership of the underlying artwork and IP.
- Vote in DAWoW, their DAO.
- Special benefits for WoW + WoWG holders.
- More to be announced
Additionally, WOW has announced that the collection will contain 16 different 1/1 NFTs, hand-drawn by Yam K and thus not generated. 8 Champions will be discovered by WoW holders, whereas the 8 Guardians will be found during the public sale and allowlist.
Last but not least; over the past few months, WOW started some amazing collaborations with Coinbase, Sandbox, Yuga Labs, KPMG, and others. It’s unconfirmed if the Galaxy holders will directly benefit from this, however: it definitely helps with the branding, and therefore will impact the floor price as well.
The reason why I like WOWG is that their team is known to build towards their vision, and already has an established project that will generate the revenue they need to keep building. However: I’m totally not a fan of Dutch Auctions.
