GENE_SIS: The Girls of Armament
GENE_SIS is a generative art collection of women PFPs in an anime art style created by an established artist from Korea going by the name of GHARLIERA. The artist fuses cyberpunk illustrations that combine women and machines. Music, action figures, fashion, and the development of their own game are still in the works and up for discussion according to their community-inspired roadmap.
GENE_SIS turned out to be a successful mint for both the team and the investors. The team has some interesting partnerships lined up, and the expectation was that this collection could perform well and hold support well above the mint price. When considering the artist’s previous collections were all sitting on a floor of multiple ETH, this project gave investors something to look forward to during tumultuous times in a shaky market.
The team did well during the mint phase by responding to extremely high gas prices due to the volatile market situations. They chose to extend their mint windows and were able to combat a price dip that approached close to the initial mint price. The team has since continued to announce more partnerships, and the community has responded well to the extended mint window which helped to stabilize the price for the GENE_SIS collection. The collection is now showing support above 0.65 ETH. We will have to see how the team can perform in the coming weeks in the face of an uncertain market. The collection is still unrevealed at the time of writing and there is a chance it could suffer a post reveal dump so this is something investors should be on the lookout for.

Blitz Battle is a P2E game in which players will compete with one another in a turn-based strategy game in order to earn $BLITZ. Blitz Battle has plans to expand its game into an MMO game in the future with the inclusion of social events, housing, raids, and more.
Blitz Battle’s mint phase started very slow while the price of Ethereum and the daily trading volume on OpenSea were in decline. The mint went live without a proper OpenSea link being shared, which severely halted any secondary sales. The founders then decided one hour into mint, to change Blitz Battle into a free mint project. This triggered the attention of their community and made the project sell out in only 15 minutes. The volume still never picked up on the secondary market as the floor price is sitting at 0.004 ETH at writing, and the total volume traded has not yet hit 12 ETH time of writing.
After the sell-out, the founders announced publicly that they still planned to follow all of their initial plans for the project, albeit at a slower pace since they decided to switch to a free mint and now have to rely entirely on royalties. This showed competence and honesty from the team. Rather than overpromise and say they would complete the same roadmap regardless of funding issues, they announced that the roadmap will have to be reviewed and altered moving forward.
This project’s launch started rough but due to a selfless and aware team, they were able to bite the bullet and do what they needed to do to move forward with their vision. Rather than taking the greedy route by squeezing out every last drop of ETH they could muster from their community, they decided to bootstrap and stick to their vision which was the noble thing to do. The WGMI Studios team wishes the Blitz Battle team the best of luck and hopes to see them being able to actualize their goals and eventually follow through on their promises.

Mushy Monsters is a collection of 5,555 cute and colorful cartoon monsters which are all hand-drawn by artist civvy (@civvy on Twitter). The art for Mushy Monsters is certainly the strong point of this project. Each monster has vibrant, pastel colors, thick lines, and a cute face of its own. The Mushy Monsters roadmap is fairly basic and straightforward which makes sense considering this is an art project rather than a utility-based one. Owning a Mushy Monster grants holders access to their private Discord server where members can find whitelist opportunities, personal support, business guidance, alpha chats, NFT education, and more.
Mushy Monsters began their whitelist sale on May 10th at a 0.08 ETH mint price. Unfortunately for both the team and for minters, the server and website were attacked by thousands of bots not only sharing false mint links but also crashing the mint website by sending thousands of requests per second from different IP addresses which was a botnet DDOS attack of sorts. The team acted as quickly as possible to combat the bots and scammers, but a project can never fully recover from an incident like this. The Mushy Monsters team made things right with the community by switching to a free mint for their remaining supply. The team also decided to fully refund everyone who had paid to mint as well as anyone who had purchased Mushy Monsters on secondary websites. The way the team handled this catastrophe says a lot about their character and integrity as founders. It is very unfortunate what happened to their mint especially considering none of it was caused directly by the team. With so many rugs and scams happening in the NFT space as of late, it is a breath of fresh air to see a team go out of their way while taking money out of their own pockets in order to ensure that their community is taken care of.

B.F.Party is a third collection created by the NANOPASS team. B.F.Party is a P2E game consisting of mini-games based on club penguin and Warcraft 3: TFT mods. The idea of B.F.Party is creating a game that rewards the players and gives them full ownership of the in-game items through the use of NFT technology. Nano Bushido, co-founder of NANOPASS, is the founder of B.F.Party. He teamed up with The Knights of Unity (a game studio), and Vellum (an artist with years of experience in the film industry, 3D industry, and character design industry).
The characters from B.F.Party are heavily inspired by Maple Story with a modern feel to create a balanced chibi style. The characters are fully customizable from hair to face accessories, jacket/shirt, pants, and boots. In a Twitter post, they announced that their characters will have fashion interchangeability, rigging, animation, and independent designs created from scratch.
As for the gameplay, they will be making a series of “Last Man Standing” mini-games, and a preview is currently available on their website. Their end goal is to create a game akin to Super Smash Brothers. Winners would receive in-game tokens which later can be traded for NFT cosmetics used inside the Nanoverse.
B.F.Party is one of the most anticipated games in the NFT space, with more than 168.9K followers on Twitter. This is especially due to the fact that the creators are the Nanoverse team – one of the most successful teams in the NFT space. B.F.Party has managed to collaborate with many well-known projects such as 9 Tales, Kuroro Beasts, WGG, and more.
Deep End Research
DISCLAIMER: WGMI MEDIA IS AFFILIATED WITH DEEP END RESEARCH
Deep End Research is an up-and-coming trading group in the NFT space. Founded by Archemist, Deep End Research will be dropping 1,000 ‘Grind Bypasses’ sometime in the near future.. One of the perks offered by the Grind Bypass is exclusive access to whitelist raffles. In the past five months, Deep End Research has distributed over 8,000 whitelists for a plethora of projects throughout their network. Another major benefit of the Grind Bypass is the number of bots offered to holders including NFT data bots, whale alerts, mint alerts, sweep alerts, floor trackers, BlockGems Discord tracker, a Twitter tracker, OG wallet watchlists.
Deep End Research also hosts several educational events every week, such as their “Lighthouse” events, AMA’s, project analysis, and live trading sessions with NFT experts. A large part of the trading side of Deep End Research comes from the alpha group “Piss Apes” – which helped to form and create the Deep End Research team. Marked by a bright yellow role, members can easily identify these expert traders who are regularly on the server giving trading advice while hanging out with the community.
Deep End Research aims to become the number one place for new traders in the space to learn not only what NFT projects are good, but also how to avoid buying into bad projects and making costly mistakes.
Deep End Research has done all their building before releasing their pass, and will continue to provide value to holders via whitelists, educational events, bots, partnerships, and discounts on trading tools. Members are currently able to utilize all perks offered by Deep End Research just by joining the server. This is the team’s way of building the communities trust and letting them see for themselves exactly what they will be getting when the Grind Bypass is released.
Flippr is a utility platform that can be accessed by owning one or more Flippr Access Pass ERC-1155 tokens. Unlike any other utility platform, Flippr gives out a complete set of utilities at cheaper prices without compromising on quality. Flippr utilities consist of Flippr tools, Marketplace, Node, and Community.
The team states that Flippr tools are a combination of functions of several of the popular tools in the NFT space that was created in order to provide an “all in one” utility for holders. It allows users to have an enhanced experience in the NFT space and also provides analytical data to its users. Flippr tools provide holders with an auto minter, price movements analytics, traits comparison, quick buy, batch buy, OpenSea analytics, portfolio management, a contact interaction tool, guards, and alerts.
Flippr Marketplace lets holders purchase whitelist spots for partnered projects, grants entry into raffle giveaways, and bidding access for NFTs as well as physical rewards (exclusive holder merchandise) with their token $FLIP. A single-pass generates 10 $FLIP tokens per day, but only unlisted passes will be able to generate any $FLIP tokens.
Flippr Node will grant holders exclusive access to their private nodes which will provide faster transaction speeds than using the public Ethereum main net via Metamask.
The Flippr Community will be a space to share NFT-related news with each another. Flippr claims that they will be building tools based on Flippr community requests to reduce unwanted inclusions.
Flippr has been grabbing massive attention from the space. They have gained over 240k followers on Twitter which is absolutely massive for an NFT project. The team also provides complete information for their platform, giving out a clear image of what the platform would be. Traders view Flippr as a great investment since they offer full package utility for a cheaper price. If Flippr does exactly what the team claims and comes out fully working upon mint, these tools may end up crushing all other trading tool competitors in the NFT space.

Mythos is creating a manga NFT collection where anyone in the space can mint a Mythos PFP to own a portion of the manga and anime. Their team is fully doxxed and consists of three founders: Alex Paull, Daniel Marstrand, and Dustin Klein. Their goal is to build an anime in an untraditional way by integrating NFTs and changing the conventional system.
Mythos is based on a light novel, “Atomic 55,” which is written by Alex Paull – the founder and writer of Mythos. Art-wise, Mythos offers an anime style that resembles the late 2010s with unique and flashy traits. Owning a portion of the production allows holders to get royalties and profit from the manga and anime. Mythos has been doing collaborations with various NFT projects like Magic Mushroom Clubhouse, Blockchain Miners Club, Illogics, Metakages, and more. The roadmap includes six steps that begin with minting a KOHO or a PFP NFT – which lets you mint future companion NFTs and mangas all the way through to step six. Mission prizes also allow holders to earn either ETH, an NFT, or whitelist prizes. Mythos roadmap also included a burn event which creates higher value for the NFT by reducing its supply.
