We may receive a commission if you sign up or purchase through links on this page. Here's more information.
We already have one of the most hype announcement drops of 2022, thanks to Imaginary Ones.
Imaginary Ones is a 3-D animated NFT collection created by two artists from Singapore named Clement and David.
This project has seen some of the craziest engagement, even compared to massive projects coming out soon, like Invisible Friends and Hapebeast. We’ll talk more on Invisible Friends just a little later.
Imaginary Ones gained over 24,000 followers on Twitter in their first 24 hours!
24 hours, 24k followers, I will always remember this moment. Thank you Imaginary fam, this is just the beginning. Welcome to the Imaginary World. #imaginaryones

Why so much hype? Let’s figure it out together.
Before we dive in, I’d like to say ahead of time that this article is shorter than usual because of the limited amount of information available, but we’ll update as more information is released.
Who’s Behind the Imaginary Ones NFT?
Imaginary Ones isn’t the first venture this team is working on together. The two have worked together on OFFSET.sg and OFFEO.com as 3-D animation graphic artists for clients like NIKE, Apple, Samsung, Heineken, Spotify, and L’Oreal.
With just a little bit of digging, I found Clement’s LinkedIn page right here, and he seems legit.
Here is Clement’s partner David, so the team doesn’t exactly go out of their way to tell you who they truly are, but they aren’t bending over backward to hide their identities either, which is a good sign.
It’s a good sign because if this was a project with bad intentions, why let someone find your real identities within five minutes of searching on Google?
Is the Art Good?
The art for Imaginary Ones has everybody going crazy. It’s truly high quality, but it’s also in a style that people are craving right now.

I had mentioned Invisible Friends earlier because this is that same style of art.

The fact that Imaginary Ones hasn’t launched a Roadmap, a website, or anything besides the art, and they’ve been able to get this amount of traction, shows just how big of a splash their art is creating in the NFT space.
That said, I don’t think it’s quite in the same tier as Invisible Friends. Every influencer in the NFT space, including myself, is all but certain that Invisible Friends is already a blue chip come mint day.
But, I still think it’s terrific for Imaginary Ones to be in the same conversation as such an anticipated drop.
It’s that same 3-4 second animation loop with great art that Invisible Friends has, and the people love it.
So I’ve taken a break from social media for a year to explore my art.
This series is called imaginary ones. Will be releasing more news on the drops fam! 🌈 pic.twitter.com/Nj3UIo7K3r

How the Imaginary Ones NFT Works
The team mentions that they are “still some time away from Imaginary Ones being ready.”
We are still some time away for Imaginary Ones to be ready. In the meantime, some of @cmttat beautiful artwork is up on auction. You may place a bid or simply head over to enjoy his artwork. https://t.co/vkrnTQr9GA https://t.co/82SOw9nhV3

It’s important to remember that the project was only announced a few days ago, so we aren’t going to have all the facts yet. However, it was making too big of a splash for me not to tell you about it.
Imaginary Ones just launched their website, but it’s just a placeholder right now, containing no relevant information.
The team is working on their Discord in the background, but that isn’t live either.
At this point, we have no data to go off to suggest any utility or roadmap. So until more information comes out, this project is moving solely based on the hype of its art.
We don’t have any information regarding a potential launch date, mint price, collection size, or if there will be any whitelist spots for us to go after.
Currently, I’m playing this as if it’s another one of those very hyped drops that are worth grinding a bit for a whitelist spot.
We’re still early, and I’m anticipating some big numbers at launch from the amount of attention the project has already received.
That’s just my opinion; given what we know about this project right now, I’m very bullish, but that could change as more information comes out. Feel free to disagree. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, and follow me on Twitter.
