NFT Market Review

  • CUBEBOT launched successfully this week, selling the majority of their 500 NFTs in a private sale and instantly selling out in the public sale (despite a hefty 5.5 ICP price tag). While the collection has nothing to do with the popular Cubetopia game, the team does hope to eventually integrate these NFT characters with metaverse projects. The collection has surpassed 4k ICP in total volume, and the floor was at 15.69 ICP as of Saturday.
  • Don’t forget to pick up your Gizmo on the Yumi launchpad! There are still over 1,000 left available to mint. The price is 6.99 ICP, but that’s not a lot to ask for a sentient wallet that will be your friend and help you navigate the Internet Computer’s metaverse as it develops. Jin Maa of VRSTL Studios has been working tirelessly to connect his projects to the top metaverse and gaming communities on the IC. This is clearly indicated by the use of Dragon Boots in the Cubetopia game. We also look forward to seeing how launching with Yumi will connect Gizmo to the upcoming Shiku metaverse.
  • The Flower Power DAO released a Medium article outlining what the team has been able to accomplish since the initial launch of BTC Flowers on 23 January. This comes as the team has already announced multiple projects for 2023 that include airdrops for Pineapple Punks holders and a Ludo collaboration with Clown Skateboards and their famous logo. While this will be Ludo’s first NFT collab with Clown Skateboards, he has also created art for decks in the past.
  • The Egg Collection has dropped the Offspring collection to the existing holders with a limited mint today on Entrepot with a special giveaway for those who mint. Check their twitter for details.

Around the Web

💼 The Great Migration: More bad news for Solana. The network has been suffering from poor $SOL price performance as well as a brain drain as more and more developers and projects exit the ecosystem. FUD is now at an all-time high as two of the biggest NFT projects on Solana (y00ts and DeGods) announced this week that they would be migrating to Polygon and Ethereum L1.

🥭 Mango Madness: "Avi" (Avraham Eisenberg) was arrested in Puerto Rico and charged with multiple offenses of market manipulation. He has allegedly profited millions from various crypto exploits. Avi's most famous exploit was in October, when he stole over $100 million from Mango Markets, took partial control over Mango governance, then voted to give himself amnesty for his theft.

🍹 Bahama Breeze Mixer: On-chain detective ZachXBT (sometimes referred to as crypto's Batman) dropped a comprehensive report on Twitter regarding some highly suspicious activity. Large wallets associated with Alameda Research have been moving upwards of seven digits through mixers. Though Sam Bankman-Fried tweeted that it wasn't him, CT (crypto Twitter) sentiment seems to be skeptical.
