The NFT era ⏲️

Dear Bankless Nation,

ETH goes up, ETH goes down, ‘round and ‘round we go.

At the end of the day, it’s business as usual here. The NFT ecosystem has never been as teeming as it is now, and the possibilities around us continue to multiply toward the horizon.

To that I say: good morning, and strap in. Our work and play are only just beginning!

As usual thanks for reading everyone, and have a great weekend ✌️
