“All of these hires will be meticulously crafted to accomplish Doodles’ long-term goal of being the most important Web3 native entertainment brand in the world,” the Doodles team explains.
Aside from the funding, excitement has also been building up for the Doodles collection due to a recent teaser of their upcoming music NFT project.
After pop star Pharell Williams was revealed to have joined the Doodles team earlier this year, the team told Forbes in a recent report that they will be releasing a music NFT project sometime in the next six months in a collaboration with Colombia Records.
After these exciting new announcements, Doodles saw its price and trading volume shoot up by a considerable amount. The collection now tops OpenSea’s charts with more than a 990% increase in trading volume within the past 24 hours.
According to data from CryptoSlam, Doodles also saw $2.1 million worth of its NFTs being sold within the past 24 hours, more than a 1,200% increase compared to that of yesterdays.
Break Of Silence
Another reason why these announcements generated so much hype and excitement may also be due to the fact that this was the first announcement that the team has made in over a month.
For the last month or so, the Doodle’s Twitter account was incredibly silent, with little to no interaction or updates to its holders, which in turn generated a lot of criticism from the NFT community.
However, it seems that this long silence has paid off as the team returns with big announcements, booming the collection back to become one of the top NFT collections again.
