Fresh off the heels of one of the hottest NFTs of the year, Bored Ape Yacht Club, the same artist recently announced a new NFT community launching this weekend called Sneaky Vampire Syndicate. It’s already receiving a lot of buzz across the internet as the NFT frenzy continues to attract investors and enthusiasts. The Sneaky Vampire Syndicate will also seek to build a community that’s bigger than just the NFTs themselves, including plans for an add-on game which has caught the attention of gamers. We caught up with the Sneaky Vampire Syndicate team of co-founders to get a preview into the collection’s upcoming drop on Saturday.
GritDaily: What inspired the SVS project?
Sneaky Vampire Syndicate: The Sneaky Vampire Syndicate is an NFT project that began from an idea between a group of friends. All of us here on the team have been friends for a while now as well as being exposed to the NFT scene. We thought since we’ve seen so many animal projects in the space it would be cool to bring something new to the community that could encapsulate pop culture as well as bring a breath of fresh air to the NFT scene as a whole; so we ended up on Vampires. The Sneaky Vampire Syndicate is our take on a refreshing yet innovative NFT project.
GD: What has made it such a buzzed about project in the NFT community?
SVS: Our launch (9 days ago) was quite a surprise for the community. Once we launched and revealed ourselves as the team behind the project, as well as revealing our partnership with our artist Migwashere (former artist for Bored Ape Yacht Club) our project as a whole began exploding. We have seen insane community support and organic growth daily and the support has been tremendous.
GD: What future milestones could the project have?
SVS: We currently have a roadmap, demonstrating only a small amount of what the project has to come.
All vampire holders will receive a special companion, exclusive merch will be released, and there will also be the introduction of the “Vampire Lair”, allowing fellow vampires to hang out with friends in the MetaVerse.
We also already have multiple milestones not included in our roadmap planned – including a game already in development. This browser-based game will only be accessible to those who hold a Vampire, and allow SVS holders to use their Vampire within the game.
We also have much more planned to introduce down the line – which we cannot yet reveal.
GD: What excites you most about the future of the NFT space as a whole?
SVS: An exciting development of the NFT space as a whole is the increased utility coming to NFTs. Up until now, there has been minimal utility across many projects, allowing for the only purposes to be as investments, or as “profile picture projects”.
We are excited that a primary aim of not only our project, but others too, are beginning to adopt more “real-use” cases for their NFTs – such as the ability to access & and play as your Vampire within our game.
GD: What are some of the disruptive possibilities that NFTs hold?
SVS: NFTs hold some incredible potential with what they can bring to our future. As it stands we do know that in the traditional world, especially the art world, things have tended to the same across many years. We have already begun seeing the disruptive possibilities of NFT’s with things such as major NFT collections hitting a lot of traditional major auction houses and art galleries. It is evident and clear that this is just the beginning of a great era of digital art and we could not be more proud to be able to participate and engage in such a promising time.
