Bankless Author: William M. Peaster

The Base NFT scene is still wide open. It’s a ripe time for an NFT collection to rise up and become the L2’s dominant profile picture (PFP) project. 

The collection with the best prospects for this ascendancy over the next six months? In my opinion, it’s Onchain Gaias

Onchain Gaias isn’t just a plain old PFP project—it’s already got the makings of a cult following, and it’s working at the crossroads of AI, games, and Farcaster in a way the crypto space hasn’t seen before.
