Before I begin talking about Slam Rams, let me first share a little about how I got into the world of NFTs first. I must admit, I am a relative novice when it comes to Non-Fungible Tokens. I was a cryptocurrency investor for significantly longer than I was an NFT investor (or JPEG hunter, as some might say). Anyway, long story short, I’ve now fallen head over heels with NFTs. Not just the amazing 1/1 art pieces, the adorable apes, camels and even eggs, but the utility and perks that each NFT brings. Take a look at VeeFriends for example. Buy a token and get a 3-year admission to VeeCon? Plus, the chance to have a unique experience with Gary Vee himself? Sign me up! Having the opportunity to own unique pieces of art that is not only an excellent store of value but also a great way to store ETH in another asset class, is quite frankly an amazing opportunity to anyone who is interested in this space.
I genuinely believe that because of blockchain technology, NFTs could be the next frontier in asset ownership and even in conducting business. We might be quite a long way off from storing our marriage certificates as NFTs, but if JPEGs of camels and eggs allow us to take the first steps into this new world, then by all means let’s have it!
So that would my brief 2 cents on the world of NFTs and why I’m so optimistic about it. My sentiment, of course, is not merely limited to myself but hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of other people around the world. Now that I’ve concluded my little POV about NFTs, let’s get talking about Slam Rams.
I first encountered Slam Rams via a Twitter giveaway. As with most Twitter giveaways that I take part in, I did a little cursory research on the NFT, as well as joined their Discord. What I found was an amazingly supportive community, an awesome team of developers and mods (who are also incredibly friendly and helpful) as well as some pretty awesome ram-themed art, such as a Mobster Ram and a Viking Ram. I got even more invested when I won that Twitter giveaway and received a Police Officer Ram, complete with full uniform and firearm.
So What Are Slam Rams
The Slam Rams are to be a collection of 1,000 unique, 1/1 edition rams. One excellent thing I observed about the developers was that they were extremely open to suggestions and opinions, even taking tips from the members on Discord on designs for the rams. I remember a suggestion being thrown for an “ancient samurai ram” and was pleasantly surprised when I saw it unveiled barely a week later. In my opinion, a receptive founding team is always a good sign when trying to spot a good project.
What is The Pricing Like
The pricing is spelt out in the following categorization:
#1 – #10 Awesome/Rare: 0.05/0.1Eth. Includes 50% discount on 2 future purchases
#11 – #100 Awesome/Rare 0.05/0.1Eth
The prices for the rams are expected to increase with every 100 rams released, which I expect will steadily boost the floor price.
There will also be 1 Ultra Rare ram for every 100 rams released and will only be possible to buy with the Slam Ram utility token, which is an ERC-20 utility token with perks such as voting power, customized Slam Rams, and of course the ability to buy the Ultra Rare Slam Rams. There will be more use cases for the utility token down the road, and I am certain they will be just as exciting!
So What’s in Store for the Future
The thing that excites me the most are 2 words, Ram Wars! Ram Wars is an NFT based online gaming platform under development by Slam Rams. Ram Wars will be situated in the Ethereum blockchain and can be accessed through the Slam Ram Token. Players can battle, collect, raise, and build a Barn Empire for their Slam Rams.
Being a gamer for most of my life, I am extremely excited for this! According to the Slam Ram litepaper, there are also plans for the possibility of token staking and NFT farming to be able to earn even more tokens.
