NFTs are super social 🤝

Dear Bankless Nation,

Reddit, Twitter, and now TikTok.

The world’s biggest social media giants are turning their gazes to NFTs via Ethereum and increasingly via Ethereum’s blossoming L2 ecosystem.

It’s probably nothing, right. Or maybe, just maybe, these experiments really do hail the future of social media as on-chain, open, and programmable.

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens from here. In the meantime, the intrigue and possibilities are mounting, and major institutions are watching our big ol’ NFT party closer than ever before. Let’s keep givin’ ‘em something to talk about 😉
