In the not-so-distant future, the world had become a lawless wasteland, ruled by ruthless gangs and outlaws. At the apex of those who were feared was a man known simply as "The Bastard." He was a cold-blooded cowboy, respected by all who knew him. Once a good and lawful man, years of hardened living in desolation twisted him to corruption.
The Bastards project revolves around creating a premier web3 studio. This includes a heavy focus on partnering with prestigious projects inside of web3 and potentially web2. They incentivise that these partnerships will be made to help expand and drive value into the Bastards' community itself. The Bastards' team primarily worked in the mobile gaming creative space, working with some of the largest brands, including:
They have a solid background that adds a lot of confidence in them executing their roadmap at a good pace. Let's dive into the team itself:

The project looks very promising from what has been released by them so far. From their excellent reveal / introduction trailer to their clean and unique art style. However, this is looking like another Okay Bears and Claynosaurz type project. The substance is within the quality of partnerships and benefits towards the community. Yes, the holders themselves could band together and create a solid community keeping the project at a strong high floor - but that requires time. What will truly carry this project's floor is the partnerships and the hype that comes with them. We are looking at a project that thrives off hype and PFP adoption on Twitter & Discord.
Right now, The Bastards has got a lot of hype and can easily 3x or 4x from mint price, but then we come to the question of "What is next?" for the project and "Wen?" will these partnerships come into fruition? This is where the project and community will be truly tested. Can the team withhold the hype this project is gaining and continue to push that energy into the right direction? Only time will tell.
Therefore, as an NFT trader, you want to be scouting for presales and whitelists for this project. Get in at the launch, where you are spending the absolute minimum entry to take part in the ride The Bastards are going to take you. I can't tell you whether it's going to be a good idea to snipe rares or accumulate for the future of the project as of yet, all I can say is that you should be trying to mint this project because it's looking like it's going to be a profitable one.
