NFT Zilla Staff

The issuance of the 1,993 hand-drawn “Age of Z” NFT artworks comes as Generation Z, also known as digital natives, has become more involved in cryptocurrencies and is among the most interested in NFTs especially.

Metaverz Studio has rolled out 1,993 hand-drawn AOZ series NFT artworks with unique and futuristic characters to represent the Age of Z citizens, group of people who were born between the late 1990s and the early 2010s, seeking to “participate in a movement” and “fight back against institutions” through investing in cryptos and NFTs.

Bring the focus of NFT to Gen Z

In a recent study on how the next generation of investors approach the market, Gamblerspick found that Gen Z, also called the digital native, is less likely to invest in a majority of typical/traditional/common assets but more likely to invest in cryptocurrencies, meme assets, and NFTs. 

The NFT history started with “Quantum,” created by Kevin McCoy in 2014 and sold for $1.4 Million in June 2021. After seven years of development, NFTs are all the rage and 2021 is the year of NFT domination, according to some.

The trading volume in the NFT market worth over $2.5 billion in the first half. Billionaire Shalom Mackenzie bought one of the CryptoPunks, “Covid Alien” for over $11.7 million. This is the most expensive deal so far. The cheapest Punk available for purchase now is 67.67 ETH. This is about $225,000, according to Larva Labs, the institution behind CryptoPunks.

Despite crazy NFT prices, there haven’t been any projects that claim to mint and issue an NFT collection in the name of a generation. Metaverz Studio, hence, becomes the first-ever institution of its kind by introducing 1,993 Gen Z-characterized NFT objects. The goal is to let the Age of Z citizens find their comrades.
