  • For those who have filled the Shiny feedback form, check your wallets as multi $SHINY has been sent your way! And don't forget to participate in the second Shaping Shiny call next week on Thursday the 28th.
  • Coinbase launched their NFT marketplace in beta. Those who have an activation code can create an account and start listing and buying. You can see what it looks like here.
  • LooksRare announced that their Listing Rewards are LIVE. If you list a top 25 collection (see here for details) below 1.5X of the global floor price, you'll be able to stack rewards. Basically free money just for listing!
  • Azuki has revealed that BEANZ are... actually beans and got a lot of fud for it. @jenko.eth followed up saying that lots of the NFT space has turned into only fudding and people going at collections they don't own. @Practical Principles believes it's because we're entering a phase where all the projects that got funding in June-October 2021 need to prove they can actually build, but lots of them are shown as not being able to and hence the fud.
  • @cf shared a very thoughtful post about the broader NFT market as a whole. Basically, YUGA/BAYC IS the NFT bubble and if other projects (ex: Doodles, Azuki, Moonbirds, RTFKT) can't grow to their level (i.e. 100ETH floor price), then we should be concerned for the next 1-2 years in the space. You can read it here.
  • Some Shiny Members minted Mems, a collection of NFTS that "promote the creation of new memories and inspire the world to foster a deeper relationship with their past & present". The floor rocketed to almost 0.3ETH and settled to 0.15ETH at the time of writing this post.
  • For those who were in the GaryVee discord before April 21st, you were eligible for the Veefriends Series 2 public mint on Premint. 10K winners possible.
  • After months of questing, RTFKT finally revealed what's inside the MNLTH box. And surprise surprise... it was a Nike Shoe! As well as a Skin Vial and another MNLTH box! There was initial fud of disappointment from Twitter tanking the prices all the way down to 4ETH, but that was very short-lived as the price soared all the way to 10ETH after people realized all the items that were contained inside the box.
  • @Practical Principles wrote a thread on hiring web3 talent, with quotes from @tom_hirst and @JonathaNFA.
