News Highlights

  • Polygon’s NFT market shows signs of significantly increased adoption following collaborations with top companies such as Reddit. Despite crypto winter, the number of daily buyers reached new all-time highs in December, even as NFT ecosystems on other chains such as Ethereum and Solana experienced declines.
  • Apple plans to allow the installation of iOS apps from external sources. This move could make it easier for developers to build apps around NFTs, benefitting NFT apps that are currently limited by App Store requirements. Currently, the iOS apps for marketplaces like OpenSea only allow users to browse NFTs, where they cannot buy or sell them.
  • Former U.S. President Donald Trump released a collection of 45,000 fantasy NFTs. The NFTs are minted on Polygon and consist of digital trading cards depicting himself as a superhero, an astronaut, and an Old West sheriff, among other characters.
