Spanish cartoonist and illustrator Joan Cornella’s first NFT project titled ‘MOAR’, launched in collaboration with digital and physical collectibles platform FWENCLUB, is now sitting at the top of OpenSea’s 7-day trading volume chart.
The first batch of ‘MOAR’ NFTs was dropped on Mar 15. Since the second batch dropped on Apr 7, over 5,632 ETH worth of the NFTs were sold as of this article. Over the last 30 days, more than 8,783 ETH worth of NFTs were traded.
The first phase of the public sale had a mint price of 0.5 ETH and was open to Diamond Hand FWENCLUB supporters. A total of 1,644 NFTs were sold in just two minutes. The second phase of the public sale with 2,466 NFTs priced at 0.5 ETH was also sold in two minutes at 0.5 ETH each.
The remaining NFTs went to those on the whitelist, who were able to purchase the NFTs at the discounted price of 0.35 ETH. The first batch of ‘MOAR’ NFTs was dropped on Mar 15. Since the second batch dropped on Apr 7, over 5,632 ETH worth of the NFTs were sold. Over the last 30 days, more than 8,783 ETH worth of NFTs were traded. The collection has a floor price of 1.53 ETH as of this writing.
Known for using dark humour in his art, Cornella’s work pokes fun at taboo topics and uses satire to comment on the bleak side of human nature. With over three million followers on Instagram amassed over the years, it’s perhaps not surprising that ‘MOAR’ is performing well.
“I started by making silent comics to experiment on social media, which has been instrumental to show my work to a wide audience. Most people know me through the internet, so I owe a lot to this medium,” said Cornellà.
The collection consists of 5,555 unique avatars including 50 legendary artworks. Each of them is hand-drawn by Cornellà using over 200 unique attributes. The avatars are in Cornellà’s iconic male and female characters.
The project tells the story of a mansion in the metaverse called “MOAR” – an intentional misspelling of “more” – where the souls of 5,555 creatures are minted as NFTs. While the world is in lockdown due to the invasion of aliens, guests staying at “MOAR”, including humans, zombies and cyborgs, live peacefully together.
The first NFT in this collection, MOAR #1, was sold at 46.305 ETH on Apr 10 via an auction, with all proceeds going to MOAR’s future DAO development.
The “MOAR” mansion will enter the metaverse this November with shops, games and virtual exhibitions. There will also be a mini-game “SEIBWOZ” (pronounced “zombies”) only for ‘MOAR’ NFT holders, to be launched in May.
