Bruh Bears is one of the newest pixel art pfp projects in the non-fungible token (NFT) space. It is a collection that consists of an undisclosed number of aesthetically-pleasing bears that will lead the way for a new ecosystem to thrive.
And what’s even more exciting is that it will launch on a fairly new (and promising) blockchain called Aptos.
Why Everybody is Trying to Get a Bruhlist
Despite not being the first to launch on Aptos, Bruh Bears positions itself as a movement rather than a money-making opportunity that a lot of collections love to pitch. And that speaks volumes considering the number of low-quality projects that recently launched on Aptos.
This ‘movement’ spirit was also the reason why it was able to establish a large and fully-engaged community, with 80K+ followers on Twitter and 42K+ members on Discord. And to this day, it is the most sought-after mint by NFT enthusiasts across not only Aptos but also Solana and Ethereum.
But despite having an ever-expanding legion of supporters, the project never forgets to recognize and incentivize its OG supporters who helped catapult its movement in the first place. The team has also teased its community with a so-called ‘Bruh-to-Earn,’ a potential feature of Bruh Bear NFTs which may provide holders with multiple ways to earn from their bears.
Moreover, teasers are not the only thing that excites its supporters but also its coveted whitelist (WL) opportunities! In fact, by making a quick scroll on its official Twitter account, you’ll see how its talented supporters are happily creating stunning art and other expressions of support for the project just to get noticed.
This enthusiasm reflects the enthusiasm for the project and its potential impact on the Aptos blockchain.
In case you want to ‘own’ a Bruh Bear right away before the minting event and make it your profile picture, you may do so by creating a customized bear on the project’s website. Have fun!
Bruh Bears’ Impact on Aptos Blockchain
Bruh Bears’ minting event will happen on November 5, 2022, exclusively at the Topaz marketplace. And while this is a big event for the community, it is also a critical day for the Aptos blockchain.
Why? Because the collection’s launch will finally test the network’s capacity and performance in handling massive transactions.
This minting event could potentially silence the protocol’s critics over its seemingly slow transaction per second (tps) and hammer its claims of being a true ‘Solana killer.’ Or it may reveal Aptos’ limitations and prove its naysayers right, at least for the time being. Our fingers are crossed on this one!
Like with any promising project, scammers will always try to hitch a free ride and leverage their popularity, and unfortunately, Bruh Bears isn’t an exemption from this scheme.
Concerned supporters continuously warn the community about a certain Twitter account called Bruh_Bearz, which has striking similarities to the project’s official account. But by quickly checking its link, it uses the letter ‘Z’ at the end of its name (Bearz) instead of ‘S,’ showing that it’s a fraudulent account.
Moreover, the team also warned whitelist holders not to sell their precious whitelist spots as it violates the project’s community guidelines. Any WL holders proven to engage in this illegal activity will face WL revocation.
