What’s happening with free NFT mints… and why they are the best thing that ever happened to crypto

New NFT projects are popping up with free mints. They don’t charge for mints and don’t make money from initial NFT sales.

At first this can be seen as a terrible move for NFT project makers because, what’s the incentive? No funds, means no project right?

Well, turns out huge communities are being built with the idea of having free NFTs but not only that, they completely removed the need for a roadmap, discord, website and everything else that we’re so used to!

It’s fascinating. People stop free mints and let the community be built and grow organically. Let’s take a look at some of the projects.
