Latest Starcatchers News
Starcatchers informed users that it would be releasing "news tomorrow" in a recent tweet.
While details are currently sparse, the picture in the announcement features a Starcatcher's character getting sucked into a portal, potentially hinting at a portal system similar to Cryptoon Goonz.
Holders are also speculating that the upcoming announcement has to do with BAPs, or Build a Portal NFTs, which were airdropped to holders on April 20, 2022.
This news follows the team changing the art for the project a couple of months prior.
Starcatchers currently sits at a floor price of 0.04 ETH according to the Lucky Trader Project Rankings.
American Eagle, in partnership with Little Lemon Friends, Starcatchers, The Littles and Wonderpals NFT projects, is offering limited-edition merchandise featuring those projects’ artwork.
The hoodies and T-shirts range from $24.95 to $49.95 and are available online and in select American Eagle stores.
The Starcatchers team announced an airdrop has been initiatied for any wallet holding a Starcatcher at 7:20 pm ET on April 20.
The airdropped device is said to be a "key component" in the Starcatchers puzzle. Holders can expect additional airdrops at randomly selected and surprise snapshot times. All airdrops will play a role in the unfolding Starcatcher journey, though details are limited at this time.
In the future, airdropped items are expected to have rarity components.
Overall market volume was down Tuesday, as OpenSea came in with $103mm in sales. It seems the lull may be tied to the huge anticipation of today's big drops, as 2/23 may be the single most hyped day for NFT project releases so far in 2022.

- Huge day of drops - Tubby Cats, Invisible Friends and The Doggies from Snoop
Trippy M3 Reveal
Yesterday evening @0x_b1, @Lior_ETH and @MutantCartel co-hosted a Mega Mutant Reveal via Twitter spaces and Twitch stream to celebrate the reveal of one of the three remaining M3 mutant apes.
Over 2400 attendees were in the spaces at time of reveal, and they were not disappointed. A Trippy mutant was revealed, the second rarest potential M3 that could have been pulled (with rarest being the still unrevealed Gold).
Market sentiment post-reveal has been overwhelmingly positive, and this M3 has likely just become the highest value M3 in the current set. Certainly this was a great day for its owner, 0x_b1, who paid $3.65MM for the M3 serum in late December.
Starcatchers Shine Bright
Starcatchers opened up their 48-hour WhiteList only minting on Tuesday afternoon, with strong market reaction. The set traded over 2100 ETH in the first 24 hours as the floor ran to 1 ETH before settling at 0.9 ETH. At the time of writing, the floor sits at 0.714 ETH.
One driver for the overwhelmingly positive response to this project is the founders focus on accountability. They created a unique mint revenue structure which keeps the founders from making hardly any money out of the gate. It includes:
- 60% sent to treasury (project vault)
- 35% locked in a gnosis time-locked safe for 4 years with a 1 year cliff
- 5% paid immediately to the founders
This decision seems to have paid off in the near term. We will all be watching as this project progresses, especially for the reveal on Feb. 26.
Huge Day of Drops - Tubby Cats, Invisible Friends and The Doggies from Snoop
Today 3 major projects are conducting their sales (public or WhiteList), likely making today the most anticipated drop day of 2022 so far. On the docket for today, we have:
- Tubby Cats at 12 pm EST
- Invisible Friends at 5 pm EST
- The Doggies from Snoop Dogg at 5 pm EST
Tubby Cats has taken Crypto Twitter by storm over the last two days and has become a cult favorite already amongst that cohort. From OG CT meme artist @ratwell0x, the set combines cute + memes in the latest NFT “cat” project. Nearly 14k have been minted, and the remainder will be available for the public for 0.1 ETH, which is a very attractive mint price as the floor sits at 0.7 ETH.
Invisible Friends from @motionmarkus is likely the most hyped drop of 2022. The all-allowlist sale required holding other Random Character Collective NFTs, valued around 2.5 ETH each near peak and totaling 7.5 ETH to secure a allowlist spot. As a result, there is much speculation about where the floor will be set after mint, and most think it will be quite high.
And lastly, we have Snoop Dogg’s “The Doggies” NFT in partnership with Sandbox. This will be Snoop’s first official avatar drop and the characters can be used in his upcoming Snoopverse. The presale went live yesterday, with the public sale happening today. Given Snoop’s popularity within the NFT community, this will likely be a highly watched drop.
Happy minting, and good luck!
As crypto prices slide and most floor prices too, a jam packed day of activity sits in front of us.
Let's dive in to the day's top news and notes.
- tubby cats mintlist continues

tubby cats Mintlist Mint Continues
After a relatively quiet start to the mintlist mint yesterday, tubby cats have exploded onto the NFT scene, generating nearly 6K ETH in secondary trading volume on OpenSea. The collection's mintlist minting will extend for another day, with nearly 7,500 tubby cats left to mint. Holders of any of the following projects during the last month may be eligible, depending on if they were holding the asset during the whitelist snapshot. If eligible, the wallet can mint one tubby cat for 0.1 ETH.
The current floor sits at 0.73 ETH at the time of writing. You can explore the collection below. Please note, tubby cats are unveiled after every 1,000 mints. Therefore, the rarities are subject to change until the collection has minted completely.
