The world of NFTs continues to expand despite troubles with cryptocurrency valuation, signaling people’s trust still in the technology. Accordingly, collectors still remain on the lookout for promising projects that appear on Opensea and other NFT marketplaces. One project that people in the NFT world should definitely check out is Hungry Hippos.

Hungry Hippos is an NFT project mostly fueled by a community effort. The collection seeks to do more than coming up with another collection of NFTs to fill up the blockchain. Rather, the NFT collection and its creators hope to bring together a group of hungry and motivated professionals to help each other grow their net worth, businesses, and way of life as a whole. 

Hungry Hippos is more than just a collection of NFTs. It’s an avenue for networking. “Joining the herd gives you access to a rewarding networking system designed to educate, teach and help elevate the holders in some high-value sectors and create financial freedom through Real Estate, Investing, Networking, and various opportunities,” shares one project coordinator within the founding group.

One of the strong differentiating points of the project known as the Hungry Hippos is its focus on philanthropic efforts. While blockchain and crypto projects with a heart are nothing new, projects like Hungry Hippo stand out because it has all the makings of a mint that’s most likely to deliver on all their promises. 

As part of the company’s efforts to drive socially responsible efforts, part of the revenue from NFT sales will help create an academy for young athletes in Entebbe, Uganda. The program will focus on soccer clinics as a way to provide students with the potential to bring their talent to bigger stages and a chance to level up in life. Many students with promising skills lack the resources to get ahead. That’s why the Hungry Hippo NFT team thought about dedicating their project to these students. 

As a way of solidifying a follow-through on the pledge, the team has already scheduled a trip to Uganda in the first week of June 2022 to personally implement plans for creating this soccer academy. The team will bring an initial supply of jerseys to be handed to strategic partners in Uganda. The project is already being called the MUNGU movement. Soccer clinics are only the first step as the founding team hopes to do more good that will help “spread God’s love around the world.”

On top of that, the project also looks to start the HIPPOOL to help save Hippos around the world, events, partnerships and much more. The NFT project also has other plans that will benefit its investors as utilities have now been set in motion for mint owners. Some of the perks that NFT holders will enjoy include various networking opportunities such as a San Diego retreat, multiple mini meetups, private chat channels, and virtual masterminds. The company behind the Hungry Hippo collection also plans to set aside funds for lavish giveaways to its community that include a line of luxury items. 

The long-term goal of the Hungry Hippo NFT is to build a DAO that will help govern the community and ensure that everyone in the community will gain value from being an NFT owner. By doing so, it hopes to also help more people level up in life by learning about opportunities in real estate, web 3.0, cryptocurrency, entrepreneurship, and so much more.

Mint dates have been declared with presale on June 23rd and public sale to follow on June 26th. Whitelisting for presale is now opened. See their Discord more information.
