Apparently, the XRP army just got a new competitor as Bloomberg's recent story about the Pudgy Penguins collection triggered a wave of posts on Twitter from accounts mainly focused on the thematic NFTs. And it seems the move has already paid off as Bloomberg's tweet about the story gained almost 900 likes, while other tweets can barely reach the 30 mark.

Some have already raised concerns about the marketing side of the story which questions Pudgy Penguins' potential for success like the other NFT collection — Bored Apes Yacht Club (BAYC). It's fair to say there's still a long road for Pudgy Penguins — especially given cash grab accusations — to get any closer to BAYC as Pudgy's trading volume on OpeSea is set at 52,800 ETH against BAYC's 488,400 ETH, as of press time.

Crypto armies have been an integral part of the cryptocurrency market for a while now. Buzzy projects like Ripple, Shiba Inu, or Cardano have all lived through these moments of desperate faith in their projects, which, however, failed to help their native tokens to stand against bitcoin's notorious volatility.
