💾 NFT of the Week

🏆 KEK PEPE BALLOON by Sasha Chudo

View on OpenSea

Derivatives are the hot meta the last few weeks thanks to Jack Butcher’s outrageously popular Checks project, and I can’t help but love artist Sasha Chudo’s playful Pepe-fication of Chris Torres’s Nyan Balloon. The accompanying burn map is just as fun—I’ve got my eye on clown Pepe, personally—and I was delighted to see that unlike the first few drops, the Doge version has a sunset background trait. Nice.

Of course I had to board the derivative hype train myself:

Naturally, you can burn two “Traditional” to redeem a “Cheddar.”
