The Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) space is one of the fastest evolving industries of this generation, and it’s growing day by day. It allows buyers of a particular NFT artwork to gain rights to the token and add it to their growing collection. However, along with its popularity comes an increase in competition between sellers. To stand out in this industry, they are expected to offer something new and unconventional.

This is why the NFT project, Frogs in Disguise, caught the online community’s attention including celebrities. It offers collectors a one-of-a-kind artwork of a frog for 0.08eth each, which is around 270 USD. Just four days after its upcoming launch on September 13 was announced, the project already gained more than 2,300 followers on Twitter and over 1,100 members on Discord.

What caught people’s interest in Frogs in Disguise is more than just the adorable artwork that they can buy. Many other projects in the NFT space offer art pieces that can match their preferences. However, not all can make the whole thing fun and leave them with more to look forward to in the future. This is what Frogs in Disguise is capitalizing on.

Frogs in Disguise has a story behind its creation, and that in itself already sets it apart from other NFT projects. The main idea behind it is that the frogs, who lived peacefully and blissfully in the kingdom of Frognolia, were met with a tragedy in the form of storks that claimed the lives of their brethren. The best solution the high council of frogs came up with was to hide behind disguises, which they thought would be a success.

This is where the role of buyers comes on the scene. Their tactic is bound to fail, but with the help of those who will purchase a frog, they can save the kingdom from its impending extinction. In the upcoming launch, 10,000 unique frogs will be put up for sale. Among the first 1,000 buyers, five lucky “frog-savers” will be awarded one of the special leading characters from the Frognolia high council.

By adding a backstory and purpose behind the NFT project, collectors become more attached to the whole function. The developers also prepared numerous strategies to draw in more people to the community. For instance, once 5,000 frogs are saved, a Times Square billboard will be put up to promote the mission. After 7,500, 500 characters will be repurchased, plus 1,000 more as soon all 10,000 are sold.

In the future, there will be more to expect from Frogs in Disguise. Two weeks after all the frogs have been saved, an animated series will be released. Merchandise is also expected to be offered for sale. If the unique frog character of one of the buyers has been featured in the series or merchandise, a percentage of the ad revenue or profits will go to buyer. There’s even a Tamagotchi-inspired game that buyers can already look forward to.
