If you are active on social media, you would be familiar with Hasbulla Magomedov—it’s almost impossible to have not come across his videos at least once. Like many celebrities who hopped on the NFT bandwagon, the Dagestani social media star too has his own NFT project: Crypto Hasbulla. A limited NFT collection, the Hasbulla Magomedov NFTs give holders exclusive access to Hasbulla’s wider Web3 community. Further, Hasbulla’s official Twitter page doubles as his NFT Twitter and has garnered close to 185K followers.
In this guide, we’ll look at who exactly Hasbulla Magomedov is and what the crypto Hasbulla NFT project is all about. We’ll also explore: Where to buy the NFTs? What is the current Hasbulla NFT price on OpenSea? What are some of the top NFTs in the collection (including Classic Hasbulla and Naruto Hasbulla)? And much more!
What is Crypto Hasbulla All About?
Crypto Hasbulla is a collection of 10,000, unique Ethereum-based NFTs from the social media star, Hasbulla Magomedov. Completely hand-drawn, each Hasbulla NFT features a range of characteristics with varying rarities. As opposed to the usual “mint day” launch, the project releases NFTs in a series of drops, usually constituting about 500 NFTs. Further, the drop dates and mint prices are announced in advance on the official Crypto Hasbulla Discord server.
So far, Crypto Hasbulla has released only 2,000 NFTs in the collection, all of which sold out early last month. Naturally, as this is the first drop, holders of the first 2,000 NFTs will enjoy special, “lifetime” benefits (more on that later). “We invite you to come for the utility and stay for the community,” the project’s website notes.
Who is Hasbulla Magomedov?
Hasbulla Magomedov is a 20-year-old blogger and TikTok star from the Russian Republic of Dagestan. His short stature, distinctive voice, and hilarious videos with MMA fighters stand him out from the others. With over 4.6 million followers, Hasbulla’s videos and images get thousands of likes and comments.
Recently, Hasbulla announced he has signed a deal to fight in the UFC. He, however, added that he would reveal more details by the end of 2022. “All my fans will be able to buy a Hasbulla fight kit soon on UFC.com and hasbulla.com,” he further wrote in an Instagram post.
Why is Hasbulla Famous?
While Hasbulla Magomedov has been an Instagram content creator since late 2020, he shot to fame on TikTok the following year. He was noted for supporting Dagestani mixed martial artist and former UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov. In fact, his recreation of Nurmagomedov’s famous UFC weigh-in fetched him the nickname “Mini Khabib”. Since then, the two have posted many pictures and videos of themselves on social media.
Thanks to his many videos with UFC fighters, Hasbulla quickly became a cult figure in the MMA community. One of his most viral videos is a press conference banter with social media star, Abdu Rozik. On Instagram, he also gives fans a glimpse into his lavish lifestyle filled with luxury cars, private jets, and more.
What Utility Does a Crypto Hasbulla NFT Have?
One of the major selling points of Crypto Hasbulla is its utility. Some of these include a chance to meet Hasbulla Magomedov virtually or in real life, Hasbi token airdrops after the 10K collection is sold out, access to semi-annual, real-life events, and a chance to earn a passive income by staking the NFTs. Holders will also get access to exclusive merch raffles, premiere combat sports events, and Hasbulla’s upcoming metaverse game. Crypto Hasbulla has also partnered with Barstool Sports and Eagle FC to offer holders a range of perks.
Besides, the utilities are divided into different pillars. Put simply, the more Hasbulla NFTs you own, the more your benefits. While a single NFT holder will get a 5% Crypto Hasbulla merch discount, holders of two to five NFTs will get a 10% discount and whitelist access for future NFTs. The latter will also get access to NFT meetup events as well as a private Twitch game streaming with Hasbulla.
Meanwhile, those who hold 6-19 NFTs will get added benefits such as higher discounts, $150 in merch credits, and a personalized Hasbulla shout-out video. Finally, project whales who hold over 20 NFTs will get $250 credits for Crypto Hasbulla or hasbulla store merch, access to the NFT meetup VIP event, and invites to the semi-annual NFT meetup with free dinners and event merch. What’s more, whales will also get to be part of the meet and greets with fighters and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
How Much is a Hasbulla NFT?
As previously mentioned, the Crypto Hasbulla NFTs are released in stages, with varying, pre-determined prices. Currently, the NFTs have a floor of 0.2 ETH or about $307 (at the time of writing). However, the rarer NFTs in the collection will cost you a higher amount.
According to OpenSea data, Classic Hasbulla is the highest-selling NFT in the collection, fetching 10 WETH. Some of the other top pieces include Champion Hasbulla, Tyson Hasbulla, and Pablo Escobar Gaviria Hasbulla. The list also includes a range of avatars where Hasbulla is depicted as Naruto characters, Batman, late football player Diego Maradona, and even the Canadian singer, The Weeknd—to name a few. These last fetched between 1 to 5 ETH.
Where to Buy Hasbulla NFTs
The Crypto Hasbulla NFTs are released on the project’s official OpenSea account. Recently, however, the sales have slowed down. That said, it’s usually cheaper to pick up the NFTs when they drop. So keep an eye on the project’s social media pages for details on the next release.
All things considered, the Crypto Hasbulla NFT project’s utilities are more catered towards Hasbulla Magomedov’s fans. Given the current bear market, investors are more selective and are looking for more solid utilities. In all likelihood, the project may have to make more innovative additions to survive the current market conditions.
