We’ve heard crazy stories of people in the NFT community making crazy flips on Jpegs. After looking at how Bored Ape Yacht Club, Azuki, VeeFriends and Doodles form real communities and lately this NFT membership trend, do you still think that they are really just Jpegs? We are seeing more and more projects building utilities into their projects. And of the commonly used ones are providing membership. In the previous year, NFTs have progressed significantly, and they may now be used as keys to gaining admission to private social groups and networks.
Owning a Bored Ape Yacht Club can grant you access to a private Discord server with certain famous owners, as well as complimentary rewards such as more NFTs or tokens from the BAYC ApeCoin launch. The NFT also has one of the best exclusive parties. Meetups for the Bored Ape Yacht Club have taken place in New York and California, as well as Hong Kong and the United Kingdom. Owners were treated to a weekend of festivities in New York, which included a real boat party and a concert with Chris Rock, Aziz Ansari, and The Strokes.
A private group of 1000 dedicated NFT collectors and artists. Membership to the collective and all of the benefits come from holding the PROOF Collective NFT. To join, one must hold the PROOF Collective NFT.

Owners of an Azuki NFT gain membership access to a special metaverse known as “The Garden,” where they may participate in exclusive streetwear collaborations, NFT drops, live events, and many other activities. According to the producers, Azuki will eventually have an animated series, games, and merchandise. Ownership of an Azuki offers access to uncommon items and experiences. Azuki is establishing a distinct Metaverse brand, and they need users to lead the way, which they look to be doing excellently.
All VeeFriends token owners get access to VeeCon. VeeCon is a multi-day event exclusively for NFT holders. Your NFT will give you a three year access pass.

The first VeeCon will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, May 19-22, 2022.
Owning a Doodle allows you to vote on community-driven features, products and events. This makes our roadmap collaborative to be decided by the project founders and Doodle holders via the Doodlebank. The Doodlebank is our community treasury which boasts over $5m USD and is used to fund these experiences.
The VaynerSports Pass is a premier utility-first, game-theory centered, sports NFT project providing more ways for fans to meaningfully connect and form closer bonds with athletes and unlock access to world renowned events and once in a lifetime experiences. Designed for NFT and sports fans alike, the pass provides its owners with unrivaled utility, collectability, and continued value through partner project mints which holders will be able to mint for the price of gas alone (in most instances).
Back in the early days, members of the community had to “grind” for whitelist, the trend is shifting and NFT projects no longer want users to grind whitelist by leveling up on the chats. You have to contribute much more than before, in order to have a chance to get whitelisted and subsequently mint for the project’s NFT. We’ve been noticing a lot of mint passes popping up on OpenSea. What are NFT mint passes? These mint passes allow users to participate and mint NFTs. A mint pass allows a user to mint a certain number of NFT as a whitelisted member before the public sale.
If you do not have the luck to win or work your way into the whitelist, you could purcahse a mint pass and still get discount on mints. These mint passes are usually given to holders who already own the NFT projects and get a mint pass to mint the next and they can choose to sell these passes on the secondary market. Which acts as a utility as being in a holder of the NFT project. Do note that at the time of writing, some projects would have already mint and these mint passes serve as references only.
Below are a list of Mint Passes examples.
The floor currently sits at 3+Eth at the time of writing this article, the hottest projects that you’ll be tracking as an early investor, we definitely think it’s worth it.
