Non-Fungible Future 🛸

Twitter eyes NFTs, Sushi’s Shoyu exchange is near, massive Squiggle sales, & more!

Metaversal is a Bankless newsletter for weekly level-ups on NFTs, virtual worlds, & collectibles


Dear Bankless Nation, 

Twitter is exploring NFTs further. TIME Magazine’s NFT drop sold out in seconds. Snoop Dogg is apparently a huge NFT collector. China just banned crypto … again

Another regular week in NFT Land, right? 😄

Drama, excitement, and intrigue abounds, so just remember to keep on top of your rest and relaxation so you can stay fresh for the future. Us creatives and builders are running a marathon here after all, not a sprint!

Thanks kindly for reading, stay creative, and have a great weekend per usual ✌️
