Dear Bankless Nation,
To U.S. readers, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
This can be a reflective week for more than a few people, and with all that’s happened here in the NFT ecosystem this year I think it really is a great time to sit back and reflect as much as you can.
Look how far we’ve come, you know? Look where we’re going together, and look at our shared hopes and dreams.
Call me an optimist, but I see an endless horizon of things to be grateful for. And personally speaking, I’m really thankful for your readership. I hope you all have an amazing weekend, please be well, and stay creative ✌️
