Bear-ly non-fungible 🧸 – by William M. Peaster | Metaverse Updates

Metaversal is a bankless newsletter for weekly level-ups on NFTs, virtual worlds, & digital collectibles

Dear Bankless Nation,

The markets are ugly, NFT trading volume is way down since the start of 2022, and doom and gloom’s abounding.

Zooming in, though, NFT users and NFT transactions are up on the year, and it’s no stretch to say the ecosystem is now brimming with innovative projects across numerous categories.

Markets go up and down, but builders build rain or shine, and our space’s technical and structural advances are compounding out in all directions accordingly. We’re paving the way for the next legs up, plain and simple.

In the meantime stay curious, keep exploring, and have a great weekend everyone. Thanks for reading as always ️
