4/20 Special: 5 NFT Drops to Watch
First, a !fun twist…
Last week, one-stop minting hub mint.fun introduced its !fundrop pass rewards system. The idea? Mint a !fundrop pass NFT, which will then track how many !fun points you earn on the platform over time.
The more points you gain, the better chances you have at accessing rare reward boxes during upcoming reward drops, with the first one slated to begin on May 15, 2023.
The primary way to rack up more !fun points is to mint through mint.fun, so if you’re interested in any of the drops I highlight below, you can pull two weeds with one yank, so to speak, by minting through mint.fun. For this reason, I’ll be including mint.fun links along with the primary links below in case anyone wants to double up on both fun and !fun 😎
All that said, now let’s talk drops 🔥
