Let’s face it: The NFT space moves really fast. Considering how quickly things can change in the metaverse, a week in NFTs might as well be a month IRL.
Don’t get us wrong — the more people onboarded to the space, the merrier. But because of the constant influx of great art and ideas, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the news, launches, and general happenings.
Well, you can put the days of endless Twitter and Discord scrolling behind you, as we put together a weekly list of upcoming NFT drops you definitely don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look out for this week.
Who: Ruben Ireland
What: Four multi-edition works, with a fifth reward piece for holders of all four
When: August 15 @ 6:30 p.m. ET
Where: Nifty Gateway
Why: LORE_II marks the second installment of Ireland’s LORE series: collections of works with a distinctively “ambiguous and fluid storytelling style.” Like Ireland’s previous foray into exploring themes of divination and folk symbolism, each piece in LORE_II is “made as a disruption to the process of the last.” Through this, collectors gain the chance to own a truly unique piece from this digital artist’s portfolio.

Series of beautiful beings of time and nature. Collection is split in four smaller categories; Season, Element, Day and Time. These four are the final pieces in the sold-out Mask Obscura Act I, Act II is yet to come~

When: August 16 @ 6:30 p.m. ET
Where: Nifty Gateway
Why: The third and final volume of Karisma’s We Bleed Every Color will conclude this chapter of the artist’s creative expression.
