y00ts Yeet to Eth 💨

Dear Bankless Nation,

y00ts, the "expansion" collection to DeGods, once a Solana sensation, now finds itself preparing to leap from Polygon to Ethereum.

The move follows the DeGods transition to Ethereum earlier this year, a journey that’s proven fruitful. Meanwhile, y00ts’ stay on Polygon has been solid but not stellar, prompting this latest bridging plan.

It’s not the only migration saga occurring in the NFT space right now, though. For example, Canto Longnecks just launched a bridge to Ethereum too, and there are others.

My two gwei? It’s been a tough bear market year for many NFT projects, but it’s been least tough on Ethereum. It’s got the most liquidity, the most composability, etc.

These projects are trying to put their collections in the best positions to survive, in other words. We’ll have to see if this is just a bear market trend, or if this sort of consolidation to Ethereum is here to stay.

In the meantime, thanks for reading everyone and as always have a great weekend! ✌️
