Moonbirds: What Are They?

April 30

Moonbirds, also known as owl NFTs, are all the rage these days. Just in the last week they made the list for the 5th best digital collection with the higest sales coming in at $1.0 million. But what exactly is a moonbird? And why are these digital assets soaring in popularity?

Moonbirds are an NFT collection that live on the Ethereum blockchain. These 10,000 unique NFTs each feature a pixelated owl character with randomized traits and features. While there are common elements found across multiple images, no two moonbirds are exactly alike.

What makes moonbirds so special is that they can be used in a variety of ways. Similar to Bored Apes, owners of Moonbirds have intellectual property rights and can use their image to create products, services, merchandise, and more.

First, you must understand what Proof Collective stands for in order to comprehend why Moonbirds NFTs have been so successful. Proof’s founding team includes Kevin Rose, Ryan Carson, and Justin Mezzell. They are all well-known in the Web2 and Web3 spaces. Kevin, for example, is a technology venture capitalist and business partner at the venture capital firm True Ventures. Also, he hosts the Proof and Modern Finance podcasts.

How To Buy Moonbirds?

Moonbirds were originally minted on April 16 and now are available through secondary NFT marketplaces like OpenSea and LooksRare. While they originally sold for 2.5 ETH (about $7,600) at launch, demand has pushed the secondary price well north—to a starting price of nearly 27 ETH ($84,000) as of this writing.
