Metaversal is a Bankless newsletter for weekly level-ups on NFTs, virtual worlds, & beyond
Dear Bankless Nation,
Many top crypto and NFT projects rallied hard this week, prompting many people to proclaim the start of a new bull cycle!
We’ll see, but I do think it’s true this time.
If nothing else, it’s a welcome surge of excitement after the long, cold crypto winter these past couple of years. And if we’re really turning a corner now, all of us here still in the trenches are well positioned for what craziness may come next.
For now though, just have a great weekend everyone and thanks as always for reading. Here’s your latest NFT roundup! ✌️
