As cryptocurrency markets continue to trade sideways, with Bitcoin and Ethereum prices managing to hold support, Metaverse crypto coins continue to build their ecosystems and remain a popular crypto category for investors. One of the top-performing Metaverse tokens today is none other than Wilder World (WILD), up over 22% in the past 24 hours. The recent price hike comes amid a release of the Wilder Moto Genesis NFT collection.
Wilder World Releases Wilder Moto Genesis NFT Collection
On July 12th, Wilder World released their Wilder Moto Genesis NFT collection featuring 6,396 Moto NFTs that will find new homes in the Wiami garages on the top Wheels racers and collectors.
The Moto NFT collection is part of the Wilder Genesis Rewards Program looking to reward genesis Wheel NFT holders, similar to how ApeCoin airdropped tokens to existing BAYC NFT holders. Wilder World is following in the footsteps of Yuga Labs to reward their long-time supporters who purchased the genesis Wheels NFT collection.
For those eligible to claim their NFT, head to the official Wilder World website, connect your wallet, and see if you qualify to claim your own Moto NFT. The claiming period will last until July 19th, when the NFTs will be revealed.
For those that don’t own a Genesis Wheels NFT and are still looking to get their hands on Wilder’s Moto NFTs, you can purchase a Wilder Moto on OpenSea for a current floor price of 0.7 ETH.
Remember that the Motos will be revealed after the claim period and will show as black and white see-through designs until that time.
For those looking to purchase a Wheels NFT to claim a Moto NFT, the Wilder team highly advises users not to go that route, as someone could potentially claim a Moto for their Wheel and list it on secondary markets before the contract address updates to reflect that the NFT has been claimed.
However, if you’re looking to support Wilder World and participate in future NFT mints and drops as part of the Genesis NFT Rewards program, purchasing a Wheels NFT will qualify you for future rewards.
Wilder World Price Up Over 20%
With the recent release of the Wilder Moto NFTs, WILD’s price saw a significant bull run from $0.2 to $0.27, rising by over 20% in a few hours. It seems that following the footsteps of ApeCoin and focusing on rewarding existing project supporters with free NFTs is an excellent way to promote the project and establish confidence in the token.
The current market capitalization for WILD is $21.2 million, with a fully diluted market cap of $123 million. The 24-hour trading volume at the time of writing is $2.1 million, with a circulating supply of 86.2 million WILD tokens.
What Is Wilder World?
Launched in May 2021, Wilder World (WILD) is a leading Metaverse and NFT project building its Metaverse with Epic Games’ latest Unreal Engine 5, bringing incredible high-quality graphics and an immersive and engaging experience unmatched by anything on the market.
Wilder World looks to create an RPG-themed ecosystem in the Metaverse, enabling users to own virtual real estate, customize their characters, drive vehicles, and much more. One could compare Wilder World to a crypto-version of Rockstar’s GTA series, as Wilder World is looking to provide a robust experience with endless possibilities.
While Wilder World’s Metaverse is still in development, the project features an active NFT marketplace with thousands of items spanning hundreds of collections. We recommend checking out Wilder World’s NFT marketplace, which includes NFTs for every budget, ranging from under $1 to virtual real estate costing thousands.
The native utility asset for the platform is WILD, an ERC-20 Ethereum-based token. WILD is the primary asset used to purchase NFTs and will be the leading utility token for the Wild ecosystem when the Metaverse is released.
You can buy WILD on KuCoin, Gate.io, Huobi Global, LATOKEN, Uniswap, BitMart, etc.
