Upcoming NFT Drops: Are They Worth It?

New NFT releases pose a unique opportunity for collectors of digital assets. While hyped NFT releases often sell out quickly, many projects fail to sell out, and these collectibles quickly become illiquid. However, investors that buy limited releases that sell out quickly can often resell their NFTs on secondary marketplaces like OpenSea. To gauge how much interest an NFT collection has, check out the team's Discord and Twitter engagement.
