NFT bull run '22

Dear Bankless Nation,

The ongoing NFT bull market began in late 2020 if not earlier.

However, by Feb. 2021 the bull run was all but obvious, as I noted at the time, and by Oct. 2021 the possibility of a decisive multi-year run was coming into focus.

Fast forward six months to today, and the NFT ecosystem remains teeming with activity and interest continues to spread out in all directions, so yes, the bull lives on.

To that I say: strap in, keep your wits about you, and as always stay creative. Also, let me know in the comments below if there are any NFT topics you’d like to see me cover in the coming weeks, I’m always on the hunt.
