I think it's safe to say that one of the most highly anticipated NFT projects right now is Bulls on the Block. If you haven't heard about this project you might think, okay - just another avatar NFT project but with Bulls right?
Well, kinda, but there's more to this one. I know many people are getting exhausted with new zillion-trait NFT projects launching every week but personally I think Bulls is special, and I know I'm not alone.
A little while ago I wrote an article about the metrics I use to evaluate NFT projects and Bulls on the Block checks all the boxes and then some. With over 1,000 people in the Discord, great art, and a clear roadmap, it's clear the team behind this project is really trying to get everything right.
If you want to do a deeper dive and are too lazy to go to the website, here's a quick summary of the question you might be asking, why Bulls? 🤷♂️
We built BOTB based on two beliefs: Traits projects could be aesthetically perfected into better artwork and the Bull owners should benefit from becoming part of a new community. We gave everything to make sure we are ready to deliver both.
The BOTB team originally met in the BAYC community and we were amazed by the power of a community like theirs. We got together to brainstorm about some fun activities for a community. We noticed that for most things you need money, so we came up with the idea of Bulls on the Block, the first NFT community with a wallet. A wallet within reach for those looking for the most beautiful art a traits project can offer.
All 10,000 Bulls are programmatically generated from over 200 items. All the art is done by our artist and Co-Founder Rui Duarte. The Bulls are stored as an ERC-721 token on the Ethereum blockchain and hosted on IPFS. All Bulls will be minted from our website for a fixed price of 0.08 ETH + gas, with a maximum purchase amount of 20 Bulls per tx.

I joined the Bulls Discord this week and it has been buzzing with excitement. Most new projects tend to have hundreds of people in the Discord, if it crests above 500 I see that as a good sign, there were already over 1,000 in the Discord when I joined and it seems to only be growing by the day.
Unlike other projects that have been very public about their launch date, Bulls has decided to keep this information within the Discord community. So I'm probably not supposed to share any screenshots or detailed information from the Discord, but I can say there's a chance it's launching this weekend but this is not confirmed or endorsed by anyone on the Bulls team so don't take this as fact.
There's a reason why the title of this post is, "will Bulls on the Block launch this weekend?" I'm not sure, but it sounds like it could happen, and I can tell you, I'm pretty darn excited.
If you want to stay in the loop - join the Bulls on the Block Discord. Once Bulls does launch you can bet I'll be doing a follow-up post and sharing more about how the launch went. Congrats to the whole Bulls team, it's clear they've put a lot of thought into this project and the NFT community seems to be really digging it!
