Currently $Sota is listed as #37 on the CoinGuecko NFT page - with a recent listing on #uniswap. It began trading at .7$ and is now in the .45$ range with a market cap, very low relative to competitors in the NFT market. The headquarters are in south-east Asia, so the value of $14,000,000 is strong at this stage, as the cost of engineering is lower compared to Europe & North America. Per CoinGuecko, the opening price was .61$ - after a few days trading the price decreased to a floor around .3$. Since then, momentum has turned consistently positive. We expect this trend to continue.
POINTS OF DIFFERENCE
$SOTA key differentiator is it bridges the NFT marketplace across blockchains. Currently, the other options are either $ETH or $BNB or $DOT. $SOTA aims to bridge across them, which would differentiate this project distinctly in the space. The project already has a working model for its platform. Beginning early with an MVP provides the founders to test and fix bugs & the user experience quickly. Other more established projects such as $LYXe, which I believe will lead the space in the long-run without question, are still in beta testing to a small set of users. This was already scheduled years back for $LYXe, but projects such as $SOTA are showcasing that it can be done faster.
In the NFT space, partnerships are very important to showcase the ability to enter in retail, music, gaming, fashion, or art spaces. Currently $Sota being very new - does not have any serious brands they are partnering with. This could be a positive however, as they have less organizations they have to include in the token distribution and it decreases compliance distractions.
