Twitter user Cirrus claims they were able to generate a profit of nearly $500K without relying upon whitelists, bots or “lucky mints.” The trader claimed to primarily focus on two projects in the NFT space, and recommended others do the same by finding a proven project, rather than jumping around at random. 

Cirrus settled on the Lazy Lions NFT collection, which is up about 2.5x the price it was in August 2021. According to the trader, the project’s relatively modest price gain indicates that smart traders can make big money without the project necessarily turning parabolic.
