Dear Bankless Nation,

What many were expecting to be DeFi Summer 2.0 has shaped up to be NFT Summer instead!

However, there’s so much going on around NFTs right now that it can be quite challenging to keep your finger on the pulse of this booming ecosystem’s constant happenings. 

No worries, though. The way to overcome this challenge is by knowing the right tools and services to turn to when you want to readily analyze and act on NFT data. 

For today’s Metaversal, then, I’m going to walk you through a handful of NFT resources that I’ve found useful lately and that you may find useful, too. 🔍
