A Reward for Loyal Collectors
Proof, the Web3 firm behind the wildly popular Moonbirds NFT collection, is releasing its latest digital art series, Moonbirds: Diamond Exhibition. This exclusive collection is a reward for loyal collectors who have attained Diamond Nest rank by staking their NFTs with the company for a specified duration. Comprising 10,000 pieces from 22 designers, including industry titan Beeple, the collection seeks to keep NFT holders engaged and satisfied.
The Moonbirds: Diamond Exhibition Collection
The Diamond Exhibition collection will feature 10,000 digital artworks created by 22 artists, such as Beeple, Daniel Isles (aka Dirty Robot), Summer Wagner, Terrell Jones, and Michael Sidofsky. Access to these works will be granted only to Moonbirds’ owners who have achieved Diamond Nest rank.
Once all 10,000 artworks have been distributed, Diamond Nesters who staked their Moonbirds during the first week of the nesting program’s launch will proceed through a rank preference voting and airdrop process.
Celebrating the Collection’s Debut
To celebrate the launch of this exclusive collection, Proof will host a party with Beeple for Moonbirds holders at NFT NYC on Thursday. Beeple will be in attendance to create one of his Diamond Exhibition paintings in person.
Keeping NFT Holders Engaged
Proof and other NFT businesses continue to explore ways to keep their NFT holders happy and engaged. Proof faces a challenging task in this regard. In February, the company canceled its main annual event, Proof of Conference, citing a lack of interest. Many Moonbirds holders were disappointed by this decision, as attendance at the conference had been promoted as a key benefit of owning a Moonbirds NFT.
Competing with Industry Giants
Yuga Labs, the $4 billion company behind the leading NFT collection Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), also offers access to ApeFest, an annual gathering of Bored Ape holders featuring performances from top-tier artists like Eminem and Snoop Dogg. However, BAYC collection sales have dropped significantly in the past month, with trading volume and floor price also experiencing declines.
This week, Yuga unveiled a collection of rare jewelry items designed in collaboration with Gucci, available exclusively to holders of specific NFTs within Otherside, Yuga’s ape-themed metaverse game. The limited-time offer lasted just 24 hours and generated nearly $5.7 million for Yuga.
