Whitelists are the holy grail of NFT pre sales
If you are not whitelisted for an nft sale then the FOMO can fuel a public sale and gas wars unheard of 1 year ago. Anyone who has seen the discord chats when the whitelist is announced knows full well what were talking about.
Whitelists provide collectors with presale discount prices and the chance to snap up more NFTs.
Getting on a whitelist not only possibly grants you a lower price but also a guaranteed NFT takes the pressure off the public sale and the gas wars that it generates.
Whitelist requirements range from leaving your wallet address to completing a series of tasks on Twitter or even discord.
If you are serious about making money in the NFT space then whitelists will be at the top of your list but only if your pre-launch research comes up to scratch.
Use Nifty drops as a good starting point for links to NFT projects and get a head start.
