Upcoming NFT Drops: Are They Worth It?

New NFT releases pose a unique opportunity for collectors of digital assets. They can be inordinately profitable but carry significant risk. 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. This isn't the only factor to consider, however. These numbers can be artificially increase with bots.

How to Pick the Best NFTs

The NFT market is incredibly unique, making it hard to trade effectively. It takes a ton of research and time understanding the market. That's why Benzinga launched NFT PRO and NFT Insider, 2 leading NFT newsletters that bring you the best opportunities in NFTs. NFT PRO gives you 5 of the best NFT opportunities every single week and NFT Insider sends you the best opportunity in NFTs every month. The newsletter and picks are written by Henry Stater, an experienced NFT trader and expert with over 1,000 hours of experience researching and trading NFTs.

If you are wondering what kind of picks you get from these newsletters, here are the 5 picks from the legendary August 19th edition of NFT PRO: Digi Daigaku, Art Gobblers, Finiliar, Genuine Undead, 10KTF Combat Crates. Digi Daigaku was trading for about 1.5 Ethereum ($2,300) when the newsletter was sent out and Art Gobblers was announced days before. Within 3 weeks you couldn't buy a Digi Daigaku NFT for less than $22,000 or 14 Ethereum and Art Gobblers were selling for no less than $20,000 each right after it launched. Finiliar, Genuine Undead and 10KTF Combat Crates all saw decent returns as well between 2-5x. From one edition of NFT PRO, subscribers who bought one of each NFT from this single edition could have made more than $40,000.
