Yuga Labs just dropped a bombshell by announcing additional utility for Meebits NFT holders. Utility is the name of the game when it comes to the NFT space so here is all you need to know.
It's time to give your PFP some polish. Go to https://t.co/jQIWIBeL8b to find a clean version of the MB1.1 print image and update #NewProfilePic. Gasless signature required to access all the downloadable files. #meebin pic.twitter.com/LMwj695xZz— Meebits (@MeebitsNFTs) November 8, 2022
What is the Meebits NFT collection?
Meebits is a collection of 20,000 3-D voxel characters ready for the metaverse created by Larva Labs, the masterminds behind the iconic CryptoPunks collection. Both CryptoPunks and Meebits were acquired by Yuga Labs, the company behind Bored Ape Yacht Club, back in March 2022.
Meebits: Metaverse Ready
The Meebits characters are already able to be played as metaverse characters in the Sandbox platform according to their announcement and teaser video released on October of 2022. Meebits holders will need to create a Sandbox account and connect their wallets to use their Meebits in game.
Enter Meebits Hub for AI-Generated Music
The Meebits hub features different AI-generated music presented in many different genres while featuring virtual artists from the Warp Sound label such as DJ Dragoon, Gnar Heart, Naomi, and GLiTCH and it is accessible by clicking here.
Redeem Your 3-D Meebits NFT
In addition to the surprise music release, the Meebits community members are also able to unlock their 3D Meebits NFTs which have been kept under wraps for many months. These 3D Meetbits characters can now become activated simply by connecting their wallets and signing a gasless transaction to verify their NFT.
Redeem the Physical Print of Your Meebits
The phases of the Meebits project, MB1, are set to be done through nine separate releases. The first of these is MB1.1 in which users can claim an exclusive 1-of-1 physical print of their Meebits along with a certificate of authenticity.
The claiming period for claiming a physical print is said to end on November 17th, and it is expected to begin shipping in 3 to 6 weeks sometime after that so make sure you don’t miss out if you are fortunate enough to hold one of these babies as your own.
Yuga Labs sure knows how to make a big splash as they’ve been the talk of the town during this past week. The floor price of the Meebits collection shot up from 2.5 ETH all the way up to 3.75 ETH after news about the hub and the additional utilities were released less than a week ago.
This goes to show that even during a bear market different projects can thrive through innovation and clever marketing. It would be wise to keep your eyes glued to the industry leaders of the NFT space like YugaLabs, as you never know what they have in store for us next.
