Meet The Sad Times – A New Web 3.0 Company Launched by Clothing Brand Sadire

A collection of entirely new NFTs has been launched by cult-worthy clothing brand Sadire. The 5,000 unique NFTs use satire, in the form of Sheep characters, to comment on cultural events, memes, and other facets of online culture.

The Sad Times is a collection of 5,000 exclusively-released NFTs that have been professionally produced by animators. Each Sheep NFT is a 1/1 piece of art, and represents ownership of not only an ever-evolving art piece, but additional professional animations as the project moves forward into the future. 

No two Sheep are alike, which adds value to your Sheep for you as the owner. The uniqueness of each Sheep’s appearance sets them apart from the others and makes them a one-of-a-kind collector’s item.

Who’s behind all of this? Dan, the Founder and Creative Director of The Sad Times project, has a proven history of creating cult-worthy art with his clothing brand, Sadire. Sadire has been featured in Vogue, worn by celebrities, and has gained a massive following due to its unique stance on mental health and creative storytelling. 

De-stigmatizing sadness and mental health is a central commitment of Sadire. The brand addresses these loaded issues through satire and social commentary, and it is from this place that The Sad Times emerges. The core project team of crypto and NFT insiders join around a common commitment to harnessing art and community to generate awareness around mental health. The Sheep keep a challenging topic light, satirical, and accessible for a broad range of owners to engage with. 

Dan envisions a world where Sheep are omnipresent — filled with activities, music, and unique clothing. Dan believes that this moment marks the origin of a creative revolution, and that NFTs are the ideal place to create without limits.

These NFTs speak for themselves. They are created with professional animators and offer high-quality art, while being oriented towards multiple angles, including mental health, satire, and social commentary. Not only that, but as the NFT story unfolds, it writes itself. Driven by the founder’s unique social commentary, The Sad Times emerges as a project that isn’t just a new NFT, but a long-term experience that is meant to be just that… experienced. 

Understanding NFTs

Before you pull the trigger and get your own Sad Times Sheep, it’s helpful to gain a deeper understanding of what NFTs are and where their appeal comes from. Let’s take a quick look at the technology behind NFTs, how they’re bought and sold, and where their value comes from. 

First Things First: What Are NFTs?

NFT stands for non-fungible token. “Non-fungible” refers to the fact that these digital tokens can’t be used as currency or exchanged for other items of equal value. Unlike cryptocurrency, NFTs aren’t made to be spent — they’re collectibles. 

The most popular type of NFT is a one-of-a-kind piece of digital art like the Sad Times Sheep collection. However, not all NFTs are like the Sheep; some of them are digital representations of physical entities. For example, an NFT might connote ownership of anything from a piece of real estate to tangible artwork.

How Do NFTs Work?

So, how is it possible to create a completely unique piece of digital art that only one person owns? NFTs are special because they’re impossible to delete. If you’re the owner of an NFT, you have blockchain technology to thank for its uniqueness. 

A blockchain is a collection of data stored in highly secure clusters. These clusters of data help prevent the creation of fraudulent information. That means it’s next to impossible to pose as the owner of an NFT thanks to the blockchain’s security. So, if you are lucky enough to own an NFT, no one will question whether it’s yours.

What Makes NFTs So Valuable?

Like more traditional artwork, NFTs have highly subjective price points. Their value depends entirely on how sought-after they are by the general public and the NFT-collecting community. Because only one of each NFT exists, these digital tokens are inherently rare, which makes many collectors more than willing to pay top dollar for them.

Can You Resell Your NFTs?

If you ever decide that you want to pass your Sad Times Sheep to a new owner, it’s easier than you might think to resell. All you have to do is list the NFT on a trustworthy marketplace and find someone who wants to purchase it. NFTs can increase in value by hundreds — or thousands — of dollars after they’re minted, so they can be extremely lucrative investments.

When you resell one of the NFTs in your collection, bear in mind that you’ll have to factor in a few fees. These will have a nominal impact on your overall financial gains, but they exist for a reason — they keep the NFT marketplaces alive. 

NFTs Are the Future

If you’re considering NFT collecting as your latest hobby, you’re in good company. NFTs are insanely trendy at the moment, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. 

Owning one of these Sad Times Sheep NFTs makes you a participant in the future of art — and that’s something no one can turn down.
