Lazy Llamas: Cardano NFTs that can Mutate in their Metaverse

The NFT space is a rapidly transforming space, with days and weeks in the space feeling like months. If you turn off your devices or set them aside for a weekend, you’ll come back to missed drop announcements, mini pumps or dips in the marketplaces, or entertaining meme wars on Twitter.

The initial ape projects such as Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and Cyber Kongz on Ethereum started the ongoing trend of animal profile picture-style (PFP) NFTs. Specifically, BAYC is famous for introducing the concept of the “mutant serum” or “mutagen” which allows for the creation of Mutant Apes with 90s culture-inspired variations of ooze and slime.

In addition to mutant serums, the metaverse is a bigger concept that is certainly here to stay. The concept started to generate major buzz in the latter half of 2021, and is projected to be a thing of the future. Many projects, especially those with significant marketing and branding behind them, have metaverses on their roadmap or are considering building their own metaverse.

As you continue to explore the world of Lazy Llamas, always remember that this is NFA (not financial advice) and DYOR (do your own research)!

What are Lazy Llamas?

Lazy Llamas is a PFP-style NFT collection on the Cardano ecosystem. The project was launched in Q4 of 2021, with an OG Mint and 5000 Llamas minted and sold out for the first drop.

The art of Lazy Llamas is done in a 3-D rendered style, which is rarer than the common 2-D PFP collections. Although 2-D PFP collections can be just as artistic and complicated when viewed through subjective and technical lens, 3-D rendered PFP NFTs are rarer in general due to a lengthy rendering process.

Since their marketing campaign and ensuing launch started, Lazy Llamas has become a force in the CNFT space. Their fun aesthetic, creative backstory, and strong marketing and branding have propelled them ahead in the race to become a “blue chip” CNFT collection.

Further information can be found on their website: lazyllamas.io. Their Twitter handle is @LazyLlamasCNFT. From there, you can find a link to their project’s Discord. At the time of writing, Lazy Llamas can be found on the secondary marketplace JPG.Store with about a 269 ADA floor price. The Mutant Llamas have a 450 ADA floor, and the Serum X’s have around a 150 ADA floor.

The Llama Lab + Serum

As previously mentioned, Lazy Llamas is a project inspired by the mutant serum. It is the team’s own take on it. The serum was teased on Twitter and Discord, and many “sneak peeks” were given prior to the mutagens being made officially available to Llama holders. A clear breakdown of the “Serum-X” and their various tiers can be found on the project web site.

The way to obtain the serum is essentially by minting a llama. As of now, all the Llamas have been sold out, but the initial supply for the first drop was 5000 Llamas, with 4000 serums made available. That meant that there was an 80% chance of obtaining a Lazy Llama with a potential serum airdrop. Since the first drop has sold out, your best chances to obtain a Llama, serum, or mutated Llama would be on large CNFT secondary marketplaces such as JPG.Store and CNFT.io.

Serums are further classified into three tiers: Tiers 1 through 3, with Tier 1 being the highest and rarest tier. This throws a different level of rarity into the mix, in addition to the rarity value of traits given to the original, non-mutated Llamas.

Accessing the Lazy Llama Lab on their website (all relevant information provided in a section below) will give holders two options. The first is the obvious one: sending your OG Lazy Llama with the serum and 40 ADA to create a Mutant Llama (for now they are only using Tier 3 serums).

If you choose the other option, which is the “mix” as opposed to the “mutate” option, you have to hold one of each tiered serum. Sending all three and 10 ADA to the “Llama Lab” will allow you to receive a “Mystery Serum X”, which is understandably rare and will be able to cause rare mutations.

Lazy Island and Beyond

The Lazy Llama team envisions their own metaverse in the form of Lazy Island. Currently, only V1 has been conceptualized. What is unique about the Lazy Island metaverse is that the Llama team (profiled below) is collaborating with Ada Realm. They are effectively “outsourcing” their metaverse build to create their islands.

Currently, there are close to 20,000 plots of Lazy Islands floating around. Many can be found on JPG.Store or CNFT.io with a price floor of 30 ADA, which is quite affordable if you believe in the Lazy Llama team and community.

The Lazy Llamas team also has big plans to not only include their own land plots on the Cardano blockchain, but to also release Lazy tokens as a form of passive income for NFT holders. In addition, they are planning on forming a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) with their community to collectively grow the project in a decentralized way.

Lazy Llama Team & Wrap-up

The Lazy Llama has two co-founders doxxed (identified) with name and photos, which is always a good sign when it comes to NFT projects. There are three other co-founders identified by their Llamas, and they have a well-known artist with a “punny” name of Dali Llama. These are all positives, especially since the project’s roadmap is ambitious. It plans to deliver on every major buzzword in the NFT space.

With two big co-founders (doxxed) and a 6-person team, the Lazy Llama project passes the trust test on the surface. Keep in mind that a trustworthy team does not necessarily mean that the project will deliver or be successful. It just means that there are less “red flags”.

Lazy Llamas is on its way to becoming a “blue chip” NFT project in the Cardano space. It has a strong team, strong community, and a very ambitious roadmap that checks all the boxes. DYOR and NFA ⁠— but the project outlook looks great!
