The art industry is an ever-evolving landscape with creative individuals elevating the scene. Last year, the world was introduced to the latest digital innovation online, giving non-fungible tokens (NFTs) the spotlight it long deserved and creating a vast platform where creatives were allowed to go above and beyond.
Since they made waves, most NFT projects have opted to utilize digital art to create their collections, and most projects created 2D cartoon-style collections with animal themes, specifically favoring apes as the face of their projects. With ape-theme projects taking the NFT space by storm, one group of developers decided to take a different route, creating the Dirty Dawgs NFT collection.
The Dirty Dawgs or DD is a private collection of 8,888 unique Dirty Dawg characters. Each Dawg’s proof of ownership is stored on the Ethereum network as an ERC. The Dirty Dawgs are uniquely generated NFTs with traits assigned upon minting. The Dirty Dawg grants holders access to the Baller Universe, including an expansive play-to-earn game, a unique secondary market, and real-world experiences.
“We are a community-first project with extensive plans to give profits back to the community through rewards and project growth,” shared the Dirty Dawgs team.
Every Dawg’s identity combines hand-drawn bulldog artwork and one-of-a-kind algorithmic outputs, giving each NFT uniqueness in its own form. With over a hundred hand-drawn traits, each token comes with exclusive access for a group of collectors, including great cash benefits, exclusive utilities, and play-to-earn potential, all of which are reserved for group members.
The collection is inspired by the developer’s passion for basketball, giving each Dirty Dawg a unique NBA-inspired look. “Our love for the game of basketball is the core of this project,” they explained. “With that being said, we will be giving away endless forms of entertainment to all holders, which includes NBA tickets regularly, watch parties, and exclusive Web3 networking events as a means to give back to the community.”
The artwork also incorporates pop art and psychedelic art influences, giving each Dawg a unique look. Additionally, no Dirty Dawg is the same as each is a 1/1 piece of artwork, guaranteeing the holders a slot in the metaverse play-to-earn game that’s set to be launched later this year.
The Ultra Rare Dirty Dawg includes a $25,000 cash incentive to five lucky holders who will be entitled to a lifetime reward of two tickets to the NBA Finals every year after they mint the Ultra Rare and Legendary tokens. The Finals tickets will only be provided through ownership. If the NFT is sold to a new buyer, they will be eligible for the tickets.
The game in development is a contest for the legendary title of Dirtiest Dawg, wherein participants will have to dominate the playing field with athletic skills, technical mastery of basketball games, and their willingness to go through continuous upgrades to become a legend. Each player can join 3v3 games, upgrade their Dirty Dawg skills, and compete to become the crowned tournament champion. Additionally, holders can explore the metaverse store for upgrades, giving them unique advantages and the prowess to win.
Dirty Dawgs is developed for people who genuinely share the love for NFTs, Web3, blockchain technology, and the entire world of sports. The project is focused on networking and is looking for a strong community of people who want to expand their horizons, meet new people, and become part of something far greater than themselves. The community is also restricted to those aged 18 and above. In addition, it is open to people from all walks of life who want to join their community and share the project’s vision.
