Key Takeaways

  • On Wednesday, BAYC creator Yuga Labs announced it raised US$450 million in its latest funding round led by a16z crypto, with participation from Animoca Brands and The Sandbox. This brings the company’s total valuation to $4 billion.
  • Crypto artist XCOPY recently released ‘Max Pain’, an open edition NFT drop which raised US$23 million in mere minutes. 7,394 NFTs were minted in total priced at $3,108 each (price of 1 ETH at the time) and were sold within a 10-minute window.
  • Decentraland recently held Metaverse Fashion Week, a virtual fashion event with participation from 70 brands such as Estée Lauder, Tommy Hilfiger, Dolce & Gabbana, and Forever 21.
  • On Tuesday Bored Ape #835 sold for just 115 DAI, which was about US$115 at the time of sale on OpenSea. BAYCs are considered blue chip NFTs with extremely high floor price and boast a group of high-profile holders, with Madonna as the latest celebrity to invest, which is why this made the headlines and was even deemed suspicious to some. 
  • LooksRare recorded a +42% increase in sales and a +8% jump in transactions. OpenSea recorded a +9% increase in sales and a +11% jump in transactions.

Crypto.com NFT in the Spotlight

  • On their sacred and holy quest to make money from THE ONE TRUE DICTIONARY, a group of talented Hollywood writers and performers joined together to help create these handcrafted NFTs. With ‘Own Every Word: Trinity Drop Pack’, the hapless group of comedians are back to work translating the sacred Word Wizard’s text into 1-of-1 NFTs to be exploited for profit. And after a month with an epic Word Wizard airdrop where four legendaries were found, we continue our hunt for #1: The Original Word Wizard.
  • Interdisciplinary visual artist Nibera welcomes you to an immersive experience in which you can explore The Cosmic City and its inhabitants. ‘The Cosmic City’ is here to offer you a space in which you can explore your imagination and ideas. From galactic landscapes to retro-futuristic scenes, Nibera created visual artworks and soundscapes that will inspire you to explore the universe in your mind.
