Ksoids — “3D AR-ready”
Though it is in the early stage of popularity, I picked this one due to its unique, one-of-a-kind concept. Motion designer and creative director Danil Krivoruchko crafted the first Ksoids in 2013.
At the time Ksoids was a personal project that engaged his love for procedural design and wild animals.
It’s safe to say that VOX will definitely take up the top spot in weeks to come.

Ethereum is still struggling with high gas fees this is why a lot of activity is also happening on so-called Layer 2 (L2). One of those networks is Polygon runs on top of Ethereum.
It enables to lower transactions costs & reduces minting fees significantly. All of those chains enable creators to deploy their own smart contracts!
NFT-Metadata can be stored either on- or off-chain.
On-Chain Storage can be, in the case of Ethereum, very costly. This is why a majority of the NFT Metadata is stored on decentralized storage networks like IPFS.
Some People have a hard time wrapping their heads around the idea that those things really do have value.
The argument is that a simple Image can also be copied with a right-click.

Ethereum has currently the most established ecosystem, but competitors like Solana, Cardano, Iota, and other chains are currently taking over the NFT-Space.
All NFTs are one-of-a-kind because the ownership gets registered through a smart contract on a distributed ledger. Iota, Ethereum, Solana, Cardano, and other chains enable creators to build their own ecosystems on top of these chains.
The chain acts as a layer of truth and stores the Hash of the file – a digital fingerprint. This makes sure that the authenticity can be verified by anyone.
What can be done with NFTs?
- The most common type of NFT is digital art.
Gamers login using Metamask, and they can see their cars in the Garage and change the names of their cars. In addition Gas Station owners can find their NFTs in the Assets section of the dapp.
What is Riot Racers
Riot Racers is a play-to-earn racing game in which gamers can earn by playing the game or owning parts of the ecosystem.
Players own cars, which they can upgrade using their experience points (XP). They earn XP by competing in races. Before joining a race, they need to pick a car and a strategy based on the race conditions.
Gamers also need to visit a gas station to get some fuel, which serves as an entry fee.
The game generates the race in the background, so it offers passive gameplay. The outcome of a race gets determined primarily by the player’s race strategy and in addition by a weighted random algorithm.
Each species is dropped one by one and is only available to mint once the previously dropped species has sold out. The first 5,000 are dropping in early Sept 2021.
The game takes place on an alternate-reality Moon Colony, where a society of randomly generated space animals (called Colonists) have colonized the moon and turned it into their very own social playground for chic materialism, party lifestyle, and moon mining.
What is unique to Colonists, is that owners if they don’t like a specific trait, They can re-roll a singular trait on their Colonist for 0.0125 ETH and will be able to do this a maximum of 3 times per Colonist.
Each re-roll results in a singular trait of owners choosing to re-randomize, along with the specific metadata associated with that trait to change as well.
Months have passed since Hash Garage “Project Alpha” was discovered. Buried deep within the blockchain, people were stunned by the vehicles they thought to have been gone forever.
The same vehicles that had once powered the old world were little by little being recreated again.
While rumors spread that a whole secret society of pilots was being formed. Something was still lost. Bits & pieces scattered & forgotten waiting to be found deep within the blockchain.
The experts kept looking, searching but still were not able to locate them. Then it happened, in a remote secret basement hidden under an old garage in a secluded part of Neon City:
<unknown voice 1 Give me that soda mate.. Another process about to finish! <unknown voice 2 Ughh.. I’m starting to get tired of this..
