What is Lo-Fi Originals (L.O)?
‘Lo-Fi Originals’ is a hand-illustrated collection of 5,555 community-focused NFTs, which are individually animated. The Lo-Fi Originals NFTs are specifically created to be used as PFPs, and they have several unique selling points surrounding their collection. The Lo-Fi Originals project combines the animated walking meta popularized by ‘Invisible Friends’ that the community has grown to love, and it also combines the hand-drawn illustrated art meta popularized by projects such as Doodles and 3Landers. Last but not least, each animated PFP will also be accompanied by a unique soundtrack that can be played by anyone that’s viewing the NFT.
Story / Background
The Lo-Fi Originals team was founded in the streets of Melbourne, Australia, by a group of friends that attended the same high school and are now in their 30s. Each team member has had a successful career in their own light, and now they have come together to create a one-of-a-kind NFT project.
“L.O wants to combine the NFT / Music / Clothing / Art worlds into one and highlight the unique capacity to develop a brand behind the NFT capabilities.” The team has also mentioned that they are against creating “merch,” and instead, they will be building a premium ethical brand that is manufactured in Australia and sourced to the rest of the world. The Lo-Fi Oringals concept revolves around chill vibes surrounding lo-fi (low fidelity) music which refers to low-quality recordings with audible imperfections such as background noise or performance mistakes which are often recorded with inexpensive equipment. Similarly, Lo-Fi Originals believes in the imperfections that make every individual unique. They are seeking to create a chill community with a family atmosphere where people from all over the world can come to vibe and have a good time.
There has been hints in their AMA’s regarding the rarity traits surrounding the NFTs. There will be a direct correlation between the rarity of the art and the rarity of the music so some tracks may be longer or more complex.
TBD. The specifics regarding the exact utilities that come with owning an L.O have yet to be disclosed. It is expected to be announced sometime in the near future or possibly after the mint phase has concluded.
The L.O Collection Roadmap, is still under development. However, the team just published a sneak peek of their road map, which includes a future album curation using the Lo-Fi Originals brand. In addition to a future music album, they will be launching their own Spotify channel in the near future. The team has also hinted at their intention to open physical stores to sell their album and their winter clothing line in the future, but their official roadmap with specific details are yet to be released.
The team behind L.O is currently undoxxed, but they have provided a photograph of their faces in addition to a few of their Twitter handles, so they are currently pseudo-anonymous.

Bullish caseThe L.O team currently boasts more than 164.2k Twitter followers, and they have many unique selling points that set their NFT project apart. This collection has built a lot of momentum and the project is very likely to sell out of its entire collection without any difficulty. ‘NFT Meta’ that Applies to Lo-Fi OriginalsWalking Meta like invisible friends, but this time it is upper torso only making it much more suitable to be used as a PFPHand-Illustrated art meta popularized by Doodles and 3LandersMusic meta where an NFT is accompanied by a music soundtrackAnime meta popularized by projects like Azuki: Lofi-Originals’ artwork encompasses an American comic book illustration look and feels which isn’t too different from anime. ReservationsThe mint date has been delayed for a few extra weeks due to the BAYC land sale that is taking a lot of the liquidity out of the NFT market. A lot of the information pertaining to the Lo-Fi Originals collection is waiting to be released including their whitepaper, roadmap, and information surrounding the utility of these NFTs. It is recommended that investors wait for this information to be released before making a decision to invest.
