Trash Panda Gang, a new NFT project from a team of artists and crypto experts, aims to help people become the best version of themselves.
Are we on the cusp of the next great leap forward in the world of NFTs? As more and more people get behind the technology, the number of projects continues to grow, and today you can find NFT-related projects designed with a wide range of aims and goals. But the driving force behind all good NFT projects is a sense of community.
There’s much more to those digital apes and other cartoon characters that are made available for purchase. Buyers will become the sole owner of the NFT that they purchase, but they’ll also get much more. Indeed, perhaps the biggest misconception about NFTs is that they’re solely connected with the work of digital art that the person buys. In reality, they become the owner of the non-fungible token plus, usually, a whole host of other benefits.
The Trash Panda Gang
The principle of getting ‘more than an NFT’ is evident in an exciting, upcoming project called The Trash Panda Gang. The brainchild of a team of artists and tech experts, its goal is to create value within the NFT community. On the face of it, investors in the Trash Panda Gang will receive an NFT of a highly-stylized raccoon. But dip below the surface, and you’ll see that what they actually receive is much, much more.
NFT projects exist for a wide variety of reasons and have a wide variety of goals. In some instances, the project is about little more than collection. A person may be interested in buying a luxury NFT for the sole reason that they want to be the person that owns it. But some NFTs are different. They speak to the principles that lay behind the development of the internet in the first place, which was to make the world a better place.
While technology can be used for, these days, just about everything, there are some areas where, one can argue, technology has been caught napping. In this category, we can probably put ‘individual development’. The digital world may allow access to the tools a person needs to become their best self, but that information is often fragmented and too widely dispersed. It’s hoped that the development of blockchain technologies and Web3 will provide the framework within which people can improve and better themselves. If people can do that, then the whole world will benefit.
And that’s just what the people behind the Trash Panda Gang hope to achieve. When an individual invests in a racoon NFT, they receive the non-fungible token plus access to a community that pushes them towards self-improvement and development. To do this, the team is focusing on three main areas: finance, meditation, and mindset.
They aim to do this by giving members of the community exclusive access to the insights, works, and advice from experts in those fields. These experts will come in the form of motivational speakers and people who have already achieved financial success using decentralized technologies.
From online and offline events to networking opportunities and weekly workshops on Discord, the Trash Panda Gang will be very far from trash; they’ll be given the tools, resources, and mindset they need to reach their full potential. Lessons will be offered in the future. The developmental and self-improvement aspect of the community will be offset by exclusive merch and airdrops, as well as more enjoyment-oriented content.
The community is open but exclusive. There will be an initial drop of 5555 NFTs, with access to content being reserved for people who mint their NFTs or have two. The batch of NFTs features twenty legendaries, and those who manage to mint a legendary Trash Panda Gang NFT will own a much rarer and highly sought after NFT in the collection.
555 whitelist members of the community will also be chosen based on their interaction, involvement and contribution within the community. These 555 lucky members will be given the role of ‘TPG Warrior’, and will receive an exclusive NFT airdrop of a rarer and upcoming collection to be announced
A New Era
There have been plenty of false dawns relating to the internet and self-improvement. But it’s possible that we’re on the cusp of a new era, one in which technology is used to help people become the best versions of themselves. That’s something that we’ve already seen with the Trash Panda Gang and other projects. And as those types of communities grow in number, so will demand for NFT and other blockchain projects to have an equally beneficial impact on its members.
