In the past year, continuous advancements in technology gave way to the prominence of digital assets such as cryptocurrencies and NFTs. And as this particular industry continues to grow and attract more attention, an influx of individuals and companies are now dipping their toes in the trade. Among them is Wiz Kidz NFT, which is tapping into this popular venture to introduce a world built for fantasy enthusiasts.
The Wiz Kidz collection consists of 8,888 high-quality variations of wizard kids painstakingly drawn and curated by the project’s artists. More than just fitting into the crowd among thousands of other NFT collections, Wiz Kidz intends to make a difference by fostering a safe and inclusive community. Each NFT is generated at random using 178 unique traits that feature diverse skin tones and unique outfits that attribute pop culture to the fantasy world.
As its creators shared, “You get to see how the different attributes change from already cool objects to just breathtaking pieces of work. We also made sure to use and include all different skin tones because we feel it’s really important to be inclusive.”
Wiz Kids has already managed to attract the attention of many NFT enthusiasts with their lore that tells the tale of lost and aimless wizard kids wandering the world laden with untapped magic. Untrusting, scared, and in need of guidance, it is up to the NFT holders to summon said wizard kids from where they hide and alter their fate through the interactive metaverse.
“We grew up watching and loving Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter just like everyone else. But for us, it was a bit deeper; it was the magic behind these stories that really shaped our childhoods and left us amazed even as we became adults,” shared the project creators when asked how the project came to be.
“We wanted to pay homage to that, so it just made sense for us to create a project that honored the magic feeling we loved and shows our growth,” they added.
In addition to its engaging lore and stunning aesthetics, what makes Wiz Kids remarkable is its innovative take on allowing token holders to obtain two NFTs for the price of one. “Our artwork is special because it’s two NFTs in one. So first, you get to see the baby versions of the wizards, and then you get to see them transform into Grand Adult Wizards.”
Wiz Kidz is currently adhering to a roadmap sectioned into five phases: Launch, Quest of Power, Enchantment Room, Community Benefits or Merchandising, and Metaverse Integration. Beyond ownership, token holders will also gain exclusive access to a multitude of benefits as the project progresses.
During the Quest of Power, users will embark on a quest to claim 10 power crystals, which carry with them a magic force capable of unleashing the Wiz Kidz’s true power. In the Enchantment Room, users who can collect 10 power crystals can combine their Wiz Kidz with the power crystals to evolve the Wiz Kid and receive a Grand Wizard. For the Metaverse Integration, users holding a Wiz Kid or Grand Wizard will be able to use their Wizard and gain access and entry into the Wizarding Realm!
Undoubtedly, the minds behind this esteemed venture put a lot of thought and consideration into the project. With its imaginative and community-focused approach to NFTs, Wiz Kidz is a collection to anticipate during its launch in March 2022. Future holders can get live updates on their Discord server.
