It is trendy to invest in NFT right now. This is what makes them so exciting. Trends always come with a note of excitement.

At the beginning of the year, the NFT direction was the last thing on the minds of the crypto community. Monthly trading volumes were only a few million dollars. February was a month of change and sales jumped to $100+ million, then surpassed the $300 million mark in July and peaked at $10 billion at the end of 2021 third quarter.

For many people who have watched this frenzy leaps occurring at OpenSea, the dominant NFT marketplace, it was logical to conclude that NFT is the new buzzword today!

Amid the market’s bullish behavior the time for dragons – NFT dragons comes. The new NFT dragon Metaverse has gathered a lot of conversation over the past few weeks, so I’ve decided to “meet” the team and find out more about the project.

Why CryptoDragons? How did you come up with the name?

“We know each other (with other co-founders) for a long time already and have worked together on various IT projects before. The NFT boom at the start of 2021 was something we were fascinated about, and we noticed that something was missing. This gap of technology meeting the art motivated us to create our own NFT where the project with strong technology can shape the future of the market. We are all dragon lovers so the choice was obvious”,- says Nari, Co-founder, and CEO of CryptoDragons.

How did the process of creating the dragon illustration happen?

When we already finalized the idea of making NTFs in the form of dragons, we’ve made a decision – the illustrations of our dragons should be of the highest quality on the Internet today. We’ve realized that the implementation of illustrations in the highest possible resolution format was required, we very much wanted to get the top quality. This complicated the process a lot, but in the end, we tried and it worked. The fact that each dragon consists of 12,000 attributes, polygon layers and vector patterns, using the linear, radial-gradient, and of course blur functions for more realism.

You can see the result! This is a real artwork, which is thought out both from the design and technical perspective. I am proud of the art and the end result that I would have bought it myself,- says Alex, designer of the project.

What is the project about? Tell us about the platform in a nutshell.

“In a nutshell, CryptoDragons is the NTF Dragons’ Metaverse, where you can collect, breed, fight, and also earn on NTF dragons. The platform has the special Legendary type of dragons owners of which will constantly receive 50% of the platform’s breeding commissions. CryptoDragons is a platform where you can earn simply by holding a unique NTF”, – the team states.

How will the minting process be done?

“The whole CryptoDragons Metaverse will start from a special and limited collection of 10K NFT Eggs, where the Common, Epic and Legendary dragons will be waiting to be born and start the Metaverse. Before hatching a Dragon Egg, the minting process should be done. Here we made the process as comfortable as possible for our community. To ensure a “quiet” sale and subsequent mint, we have developed a process of “Egg Reservation”. A reservation is a simple transaction from a user, not a mint. We’ll record the public address of the wallet in the smart contract itself in a special array of reserves. Once the reservations have been completed, those wallets that are recorded will be able to hold a rally at any time of their choice.

Moreover, after hatching all Egg holders will have two NFTs instead of one – an Eggshell and the Dragon itself”,- concludes Nari.

Cool, and what are the plans for the future? I mean what development path did you choose for your project?

“I don’t want to get ahead of it but our immediate plans are to switch to Layer2 and develop a full-fledged platform where all NFTs involved in the project, including the Eggshells, will be used. But this is just one of our intentions. Everything else will be available soon,- says Nari.
