The Four Pillars of NFT

— Community

If the creators successfully nail these 4 things, the project will be successful.

Why these four? 👇
8888 #savagedroids are ready for September 8. 4444 for each faction. Excited to have these bad boys in the wild and see how people upgrade them on phase 2

Join the discord for more info:
The pre-sale signup for Savage Droids got a leeeeeeettle overheated. When we kicked off this collab w Savage Dogs we were hoping to get 1000 pre-sale signups. At 4,200 signups we had to stop the signup early. You can still get in on the action though: the drop is next Wednesday, September 8. Mark your calendars!
That's all folks! See you next week.
