The Beanz NFT collection is the second NFT collection from the popular developer known as Azuki. After teasing its launch for over a month, Azuki finally dropped Beanz this week. The reception has been impressive so far, suggesting that the Beanz collection might continue Azuki’s red-hot streak.
Azuki has promised holders of this collection a lot of benefits. Also, judging from the initial reception, many believe that the Beanz collection just might be one of the bestsellers of 2022. Below, we’ll examine everything there is to know about Beanz and what makes the NFT collection so interesting.
About Azuki Beanz
Beanz is the latest collection of NFTs from Azuki – a digital art brand based in Los Angeles. The company became wildly popular in 2021 after releasing a batch of successful NFTs that intrigued fans.
Azuki’s first NFT collection – called Azuki NFTs – was a huge success. The anime-styled tokens have recorded almost $650 million in sales volumes, according to data from CryptoSlam. Looking to capitalise on this, Azuki began teasing Beanz in April 2022.
On April 1, the Azuki team shocked their community members by airdropping NFTs to them at the Azuki Garden Party. While many believed it was an April Fools’ joke, they refreshed their metadata to find NFTs in the shape of a pile of dirt.
Days later, the Azuki team officially announced the Beanz collection. The NFTs in this collection were designed to be “sidekicks,” with holders being able to pair them with the Azuki NFTs to make the perfect NFT squad.
Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean an investor will need to own an Azuki NFT to own one Beanz NFT. The Beanz are just as capable of forming a healthy part of your portfolio as the original Azukis.
How Many Azuki Are Available For Purchase
According to research, there are 19,944 NFTs in the Beanz collection from Azuki.
There are two types of Beanz in this collection. First is Toshi – the red Beanz, which is known to be very rebellious. Toshi wanders the garden and is described as being ready to “bite” if the situation calls for it.
Then, there’s Gus. The blue Beanz is Gus, also known as Les. These tokens are known for irritating their Azuki partners, and they’re just as good as the Toshis when it comes to getting into mischief.
