Free Mint NFTs on Avalanche
Free mint NFTs are surging on Avalanche, with new projects launching daily and existing projects seeing impressive volume and floor prices. Here we’ll cover the key takeaways from some of the most popular collections lately.
Free Mint vs Paid Mint
Traditionally, NFT projects will launch with a paid mint and charge between 1-5 AVAX to mint an NFT, as seen with blue chip projects like Party Animals, AVAX Apes, and Chikn NFT.
Free mints are a new strategy to charge zero dollars to mint, so projects can quickly build a community of hundreds of people in a matter of days. These projects often proclaim to not have a roadmap, website, or discord. Funding a free mint project is tricky however, since an NFT project only earns royalty fees from secondary trading volume.

Smol Joes was the first free mint from the Joepegs NFT marketplace by Trader Joe. A small collection of only 100 items, it quickly rose to success as the floor price shot up to 250 AVAX. Sibling collections such as Smol Lands, Smol APAs, and Smol Creeps followed suit to fill out out this ecosystem.
