Buy Flow history with FLOW

You can now buy Hoodlums, the first PFP project ever launched on Flow, with FLOW on Flowverse NFT

Hoodlums were the first generative PFP ever launched on Flow.

We just integrated them into Flowverse NFT.

Here’s why you should care about this project.

Flowverse NFT featuring Hoodlums

What are Hoodlums?

Hoodlums is an NFT collection of 5000 uniquely generated characters.

The artwork is by artist somehoodlum.

Their launch date of Sep 28, 2021 makes them the first PFP on Flow.

They sold out for $123.45 per Hoodlum.

Does being first matter?

Being the first PFP on Flow may make Hoodlums historically valuable given demand for NFTs can have a historical aspect.

As R. Selkis said in Messari's 2022 report: "CryptoPunks are valuable simply because they represent the first PFPs to be minted on the Ethereum blockchain".

The Art

As a generative PFP, each of the 5000 Hoodlums is unique with characteristic traits.

The traits reflect trends seen on social media, at music festivals and in vintage stores around the world.

Some rare Hoodlums transcended into the embodiment of these trends.

Amongst the 5000 Hoodlums, there are 10 extremely rare, one-of-one Hoodlums.

Outside of these Lums, the rarest Hoodlums have Alien skin traits (only 33 in the whole collection).
