The concept of NFT first appeared in 2017, and was considered a “goofy” technology back then(such as collecting CryptoKitties). In just 4 years, however,NFT has gain an growing adoption and admiration among artists, designers, game developers, musicians and even major manufacturers across the world.
From Alipay’s own NFT collections that started selling last year, to super-star Jay Chou shared a screenshot of Phanta Bear NFT on Instagram at the beginning of 2022, and 10,000 Phantom Bear NFTs were all sold out in less than an hour (the total trade volume exceeded 62 million RMB ). All these events are indicating the broad prospects of this market.

However, even if the uncommon terms NFT and Metaverse have appeared on the Chinese Spring Festival Gala this year, compared to the entire industry, the participation of Asians is still very low. Why?
Is that the Asians don’t love art? Don’t Asians love to collect limited editions? Don’t Asians love buying commodities which value have potential to appreciate?
If the answers are no, then why are the Chinese zodiac limited editions launched by luxury brands every year all sold out really fast? No matter how they look and how outrageously expensive they are?

Actually the Chinese are so obsessed with zodiac elements that they all believe in wearing red underwear in the year of birth would keep bad things away, which can all be interpreted as traditional behaviors. Then wouldn’t NFTs with traditional meanings be serious appealing to them?
Does such NFT exist?
The answer is yes!
On the 24th Jan., the pre-sale of Lucky Zodiac collections by Mysterverse started, and the pre-sale price was 0.1ETH. In just one month, the floor price of the collection has risen to 0.25ETH, which is a 250% percent raise!
The Lucky Zodiac collection has 396 NFTs—unique digital collectibles living on the Ethereum blockchain. There are a total of 12 different types of animals with various traits, but only 33 pieces of each animal are available for sale. Every single piece of the collection is handmade by famous artists Celine Ngai and Chiu Chun Pao. The design concept of the Lucky Zodiac is a mix of the eight characters, the five elements and the mythological background of the 12 animals, so each Lucky Zodiac NFT can provide a special effect based on the buyer and the animal.
Even if you are not an NFT enthusiast, from the perspective of metaphysics and the artistic style, this collection is very suitable as a holiday present for the elders and friends. Printing it out as a painting will not only be a beautiful decorating, but it can also be used for feng shui reasons for home or office.
