Right Place, Right Mint ⏰️
Weekly Roundup: Magic Eden Wallet, Polygon’s ApeChain proposal, Parallel Season 1, & more!
Metaversal is a Bankless newsletter for weekly level-ups on NFTs and the onchain frontier
Dear Bankless Nation,
Farcaster, which I wrote about a few days ago, is becoming a really interesting hub for NFT activity.
And since the Farcaster scene is so early, some of the first NFTs minted around it have understandably mooned in value as excitement here is growing.
The social media experience on Farcaster is great, and it’s worth switching over on that basis alone, but for us NFT adventurers it’s also time to pay closer attention because Farcaster minting opps are becoming a new meta.
The idea? Put yourself in the right place at the right time, and you may just mint some gems.
That said, make sure you signup if you haven’t already. In the meantime, let’s get you caught up on the past week in NFTs with this latest news roundup!
