With the newest Lazy Cubs NFT collection dropping on May 18, 2022, here is a complete review of the roaring universe of Lazy Lions.
NFT craze brought four friends from Sydney, Australia to create Lazy Lions amidst the pandemic lockdown. Taking inspiration from daily life and lions, the team, now known as the Blockchain Media PTY LTD., dropped a 10,000 uniquely designed Lazy Lions NFT collection on 7th August 2021 through the Ethereum blockchain. The collection recorded sales of over 1.5 million dollars in the first five hours of its drop.
The collection is available on OpenSea with a floor price of 0.95 ETH and a trading volume of 29.0k ETH, at the time of writing.
Inside the Lazy Lions is a whole new universe with its own island and community, completely separate from the real world. To know more about Lazy Lions, see the detail below:
Story behind the Lazy Lions
Growing up amidst the statues and images of Gilgamesh, the team’s obvious choice for their NFT design was inspired by the powerful and majestic animal that holds a sense of pride and dignity across various cultures.
The Lazy Lions integrate the modern world with the jungle to reimagine a universe where lions are rich and own NFTs. They enjoy the luxuries of a private island, roam around the streets, and sleep for 20 hours a day!
Despite being lazy, Lions pride themselves as the Kings and Queens of the virtual world.
Enter the Jungle: Lazy Lions Private Island
Welcome to the ROARING jungle of Lazy Lions where Kings and Queens reside on private land. In the virtual world, the lions have evolved into a modern age where they enjoy city life on a private island.
Lazy Lions Private Island welcomes all the Kings and Queens from all over the world to enjoy the luxuries. With the slogan of Roars over Floors, every King and Queen is equal on Private Island. They enjoy the sea breeze by the cabana bar, go shopping to buy clothes, feel the sun in a hammock, and have a healing day at the spa.
ROARwards and airdrops
The private island is the hub for all lion owners who gather for exclusive airdrops, ROARwards, giveaways, and access to a private community.
Currently, 5.1k lion owners reside on the private island, but the community as a whole is quite large with over 200k members coming in soon. In the lion community, you will spot some famous influencers and celebrities such as Jake Paul, John Terry, and Seth Curry.
The community is highly engaged and interactive. Lazy Lions has also included ROARwards, which are exclusive rewards and benefits for those who participate in community events and activities.
In terms of exclusive airdrops, the Lazy Lion Holders were gifted with a Bungalow airdrop. These Bungalows were Twitter banners for owners to show off their lions and other NFTs on social media. Another 1,500 bungalows collection went for public sale to welcome new members to the private island.
Lazy Cubs: The new collection drop
Lazy Cubs are the younger version of Lazy Lions that are soon to be released on May 18, 2022. This NFT collection is the team’s second main collection after Lazy Lions that will kickstart a new era of Lazy Lions with various projects and partnerships incoming.
The team is currently allowing members of Discord and other collaborations to register through the allowlist spots. No one other than the Allowlist members will be able to mint Lazy Cubs during the initial drop. The existing Bangalow owners can also register for the allowlist and buy Lazy Cubs while the Lazy Lions owners will receive the benefit of free Lion Cubs NFT.
According to the Medium post, the lion holders will receive a Lazy Drink airdrop of Milk or Juice that they can use to mint a Lazy Cub. Furthermore, the lion holders who are included in the allowlist can also mint a Lazy Cub in addition to the Lazy Drink.
The Lazy Lion Private Island is expected to see more people arriving as Lazy Cubs NFTs will be more than the previous collection.
Born Free Foundation: An IRL experience
Other than creating NFTs, The Lazy Lion team has introduced a brand-new project. Lion holders can now receive a personal experience to see lions by visiting the Shamwari Private Game Reserve in South Africa.
The Lazy Lions team partnered with Born Free Foundation to sponsor two lions, Angela and Louga, in their natural habitat. As a sign of gratitude and appreciation to the Lazy Lion community, all holders will receive a VIP treatment to visit their big-cat sanctuary in Eastern Cape, South Africa holding other lions and leopards in their natural habitat
There are no shortlists or selected member criteria, all lion holders can register for this event and visit the Shamwari Private Game Reserve. If you are a lion holder, don’t miss out on the VIP protocol by applying through the website.
Lazy Lions Roadmap: future plans and prospects
Following the Lazy Cubs NFT collection drop, there will be many opportunities to enjoy the benefits for the NFT holders. Although the website hasn’t posted any roadmap except the picture above, many anticipate what the Lazy Lions team has in store for the future.
Lazy Lions has already done partnerships with various organizations such as NBA Sacramento Kings for the Laid Back Lions NFT collection, Lazy Lions x PUMA, and many more. There might be more partnerships coming up in the near future, especially with Chainlinks and Coinbase.
Furthermore, Lazy Lions also has plans to enter the Metaverse on The Sandbox. The team announced it purchased a 3×3 plot in The Sandbox to build the Private Island. This metaverse project will kickstart a new era for Lazy Lions in the Web3 world.
With the slogan of The Bigger the Jungle, the Bigger the Kingdom, the Lazy Lions community is committed to empowering the entire Web3 and NFT world through its metaverse.
Lazy Lions are slowly taking over the world by storm. By showcasing its powerful and pride-worthy concept, Lazy Lions is bound to draw even more investors in the coming years.
Lazy Lions has recorded 94M USD of total trading volume with around 190k Discord members. As a community comprising some high-profile celebrities not only can holders interact at a global level but also have the right to voice their opinion through a formalized voting system and AMAs with the dev team so that every member is involved with the development and success of the project.
What makes Lazy Lions different from others is the commercial rights it provides to owners. Anyone with a Lazy Lion or Bangalow NFT has the legal right to use their NFT for commercial purposes such as merchandising or physical print. This is definitely a plus point!
