The NFT industry continues to grow today despite claims of its market crash. But creators remain optimistic that NFTs will remain one of the best forms of artistic expression and a way to bring people deeper into the Web3 environment. The NFT space has been dominated by animal characters, with various collections launching art inspired by apes, dogs, and even monkeys. The High Society aims to change the narrative by launching a collection inspired by humans, saying it is high time for humans to take the stage while simultaneously highlighting a culturally-relevant icon: cannabis.
The High Society project was made possible because the creators saw a massive gap in the NFT space that needed to be filled. Although projects inspired by animals and material stuff have been massive hits, the creators feel that the industry lacked a genuine homage to humans and everything that makes them special. The collection showcases humans in the metaverse and how, as a society, they have evolved to digital times. No funny animal characters, just humans being highlighted as a race that advanced into the new digital frontier.
In addition, The High Society is highlighting a part of human pop culture that is highly appreciated today–cannabis. The goal is to erase the stigma surrounding the cannabis community, amplifying that it has united people of different races and colors from around the world.
“Let’s lift each other up. Light up, enjoy the vibes, and most importantly of all, welcome, to The High Society,” the founders said. “The High Society is a social club with ongoing projects that will be released further along with its development. The art is a human face wrapped around a cannabis bong located inside a prominent lounge. The collection will include variations and derivatives of celebrities and the world’s most prominent features,” they added.
The High Society is the brainchild of two visionary entrepreneurs who formerly made massive impacts in Silicon Valley. With vast experiences in some of the most successful companies in Silicon Valley, including Tesla, the partners leverage their knowledge to create something the market has never seen before. The creators love surrounding themselves with equally hard-working talents and team members who also value critical thinking and problem-solving. Together, the founders are impacting not only the industry but also their internal circle of professionals as they give them an avenue to fully utilize their capacities.
“Our mission is always to bring something to your living room you can enjoy, share with your friends, and truly be part of what The High Society is. More than art, our mission is to bring positive vibes to you and those around you, here in the world and equally as in the metaverse,” the creators explained.
The High Society NFT project will be releasing its 2D and 3D artworks on June 17th. Mint price will be at 1 ETH. The creators also revealed that they would be hosting a whitelist sale and giveaways in the future. Furthermore, they will be hosting epic parties for their community to which holders will gain exclusive access.
