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


Dear Bankless Nation,

It was a dizzying week in the NFT ecosystem. It seems like a million exciting things just happened, right!

Well strap in, I say. We can expect this pace for the foreseeable future as interest and validation pours into all the projects building amazing stuff around NFTs right now and as the wider cryptoeconomy turns bullish once more.

So there will be lots to do, and see, and read about in the days and weeks ahead. But just remember to keep your head on a swivel. There’s a ton to be excited about, and you don’t have to jump in and process everything at once!

Just be both curious and cautious, do your research and help others where you can, and last but not least be sure to have some fun. This is our revolution, and we get to do things our way now …
