If you’re interested in NFTs, the Silks Avatars are must-have additions to your portfolio. The Silks Avatars allow you to participate in the Silks ecosystem – a project that mirrors the thoroughbred horse racing industry that generates $11 billion yearly.
Silks have combined the metaverse with real-world derivatives of thoroughbred horses. It’s the first derivatives-based ecosystem that allows NFT holders to earn from the outcome of real-world events. If you own the NFT of a winning horse, you are rewarded in the Silks metaverse. First, however, you need one of these Silks Avatars to participate.

The Silks Avatars consist of 10,000 NFTs released in two separate batches.
Where's the #hype coming from for @gameofsilks ? Is it just retail or does Silks put out anything to get people excited.— AC Slater (@Linkudann) September 13, 2022

The first batch quickly sold out after some top-tier crypto investment firms rushed to buy the collection. As a result of the overwhelming demand for the Silks Avatars, they promptly ranked among the top 10 Sports NFTs on OpenSea. Nansen.ai even added the Silks Avatars to their Gaming-50 NFT Index – one of the most respected indexes in the NFT space.
You will also find some Silks Avatars in the same wallets holding prominent NFT collections, such as Bored Ape Yacht Club holders and CryptoPunks.
One of the main reasons that Silks quickly gathered momentum was the highly experienced team leading the project. Silks was co-founded by a highly successful entrepreneur, Troy Levy, the owner of Circle 8 Farms and the CEO of Tropical Racing – a multifaceted horse racing company specializing in horse breeding.
Furthermore, the CEO of silks – Dan Nissanoff – is a serial web entrepreneur who co-founded Portero, an online facilitation company. Portero is affiliated with top-tier companies such as eBay, specializing in luxury goods resale.
Silks is bound to become a successful and flourishing ecosystem with a strong team behind the project.
Final Batch Up For Sale and Quickly Selling Out
The final batch of Silks Avatars is now up for sale. This will be the last batch from the overall 10,000 collection, with only around 3,000 NFTs remaining.
You can purchase these Silks Avatars for just 0.25 ETH.
The Silks Avatars have a variety of attributes with different levels of rarity, providing the opportunity for collectors to profit from the NFTs.
Furthermore, your Silks Avatar provides you with the following benefits:
- Collect racing rewards in the Game of Silks.
- Access the Silks metaverse in style.
- Allows holders to mint one of the Silks Horses NFTs – needed to start earning in the game.
- Provides owners with a lifetime mint pass for the annual Genesis Yearling Sale.
- Inherit a Sky Falls Genesis parcel claim of land in the metaverse 45 days after holding the Avatar in the same wallet.
- Gain access to exclusive experiences, giveaways, and in-person events.
It also serves as your digital identity in the metaverse. The distinct attributes collectively create a “coat of arms” on all the other NFT assets you own within the Silks ecosystem. These can include the Silks Horses, the Silks Land, and the Silks Stables you might own.

Silks is ready to open the doors to its metaverse in 2023 and will allow you to start earning. If you own one of the Silks Avatars, you can currently mint one of your first Silks Horses NFTs.
The Silks Horses are direct replicas of real-world thoroughbred racehorses. Around 20,000 Yearlings (Horses less than two years of age) are registered each year, and Silks will create derivatives of each of these annually.
Considering that the average auction price for these Yearlings is $60,000, the Silks Horses might eventually become extremely valuable assets – especially if your horse is skilled enough to win in its real-world races.
