Pudgy Penguins ATH 🐧
Weekly Roundup: Art Blocks birthday, Parallel Season 5, Songcamp’s C4, & more!
Metaversal is a Bankless newsletter for weekly level-ups on NFTs, virtual worlds, & beyond
Dear Bankless Nation,
While the past two years have been brutal for many PFP projects, the Pudgy Penguins collection has continued to shine throughout the bear.
This week, the Penguins reached new all-time highs in both USD and ETH terms. Currently, the floor price on OpenSea is 7.77 ETH.
There’s no mania right now, just apparent consolidation around what people see as one of the strongest projects in NFTs, so we’ll have to wait and see if this impressive breakout is followed by other rallies around the space.
For now, thanks as always for reading everyone. Here’s your latest weekly NFT roundup! ✌️
