The NFT junction 🛣️

Dear Bankless Nation,

It’s Q4 2021, and we’re closing out what’s been the biggest year for NFTs yet.

What are your takeaways so far? What are your hopes for the future as our ecosystem continues to bloom?

It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come so fast. I think it speaks to the fact that we’ve built out a “super” crossroads of sorts, where so many different fields and talented people are now crossing paths and creating.

This doesn’t mean that things are “up only” from here. Hardly. Yet it does mean it’s getting increasingly easy for those of us who have seen the magic of this intersection to believe bigger things are coming. Have a great weekend everyone, thanks for reading!
